A Case For Gun Ownership in Mexico and Obama has it Wrong on Mexico

I am going to tread very carefully on this thread because the photo sent to me tells me what life is like in Mexico and is very sensitive and very serious.

We have seen Obama blame the gun trade from the U.S. as a way the drug cartels have armed themselves.

What Obama and the news will not talk about is when you have a society that is not able to arm itself, it succumbs to the will of either the government or as in this case, the drug cartels.

In the photo below, you will see an automatic weapon. It is on loan to a normal Mexican citizen. Why? Because since Obama has been in Mexico, there has been a shift in the federal forces and as such, the drug cartel leaders are moving back into areas where the federal forces were.

Now you have to stop and think about it and compare the U.S. laws on gun ownership with Mexican laws on gun ownership.

Then think about how you would feel if you where being harassed and having your life threatened by a narco and you couldn't go to the local police because some in the local police are corrupt.

The person who has the weapon temporarily, did this to protect their family and theirself against a narco.

Why? Because the narco wants the wife of the husband as part of his group of other women. This is a family that is striking out and trying to make a living for themselves and they have to deal with this.

It's the same old tired argument from the left to blame gun rights as the cause of all evil, when in fact, it is the lack of gun rights that is the cause of evil to exist and the good folks not being able to protect themselves.

So when Obama talks about the flow of guns from the U.S. into Mexico, stop and ask yourself, what about the good people. What are their rights to protect themselves.

You are dead on the mark. A free people, who have control of their county is an armed people.

The cartels would not be able to do what they are doing now. The government would be able what they have done in the past.

And the most important thing, the people would be citizens, not subjects to the government.
