    The Mexican Second Amendment

    Robert Farago has an insightful piece in the Washington Times about the disarming of the Mexican people, the gutting of Article 10 of their constitution, and the resulting corruption and mayhem it has caused, once again demonstrating that fewer guns can and do lead to more crime. Imagine if those proud people rose up in the midst of the current chaos down there and demanded the return of their natural rights.
    I'm not holding my breath, of course; but still, one can dream...

    Good article, you can bet no one in Obama's regime will read it.

    Mexico has the same kind of second amendment that the UN has for human rights in general. Which is to say, you have the right to do it unless the government says you can't. Therefore, you never had the right in the first place. That is why they are nowhere near the country we are, and the more we are moving in that direction the more of a disaster we will become as well. Articles like this are excellent, because they point out the fallacy of "government granted" rights, as opposed to prohibitions placed on governments in recognition of inalienable human rights. I hope a great number of people read the article; thanks for sharing OP.

    Absolutely right, peckman. "...endowed by their Creator..."
    From Mexico's Article 10: "The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right to possess arms in their homes for their security and legitimate defense with the exception of those prohibited by federal law..."
    The damn thing's got a built-in kill-switch.
