You think we've got it rough?
(Mods - This seemed like the best place for this, but if you think it belongs elsewhere .....)
I was running around this morning taking care of a few clients. Saturday morning is usually a quiet time and I listen to a fair amount of AM radio. I was scanning the stations and just happened to catch the tail end of a piece about Mexican gun "rights" and laws. It caught enough of my attention that I looked up the whole story when I got home. It was on NPR of all things.
Here is the story.
Mexican Community Takes Taboo Stance On Guns : NPR
The idea that, in the U.S., it is as easy to buy an "assault rifle" as it is a beer is a little dramatic, in my opinion.
There is only ONE gun store in Mexico and the initial purchase permit is $10,000. Wow.
It is legal to OWN a firearm, but not to BUY a firearm. Huh?
The head-in-the-sand comments from the three people at the end of the story are particularly frightening to me, as they could easily have come from some of our neighbors and co-workers.
This is what we all MUST prevent from happening in our beloved country. This is why we MUST be diligent in fighting ANY encroachment of our Rights.
Read this story, and see a snapshot of our future if we become too complacent or over confident in the unassailability of the Second Amendment.
