Hopefully the Cartels won't be trying that north of the border.

I think they eventually will. Sadly that's what it's going to take to lock the border down. A border town will have to be turned into a slaughter house to get people's attention.

I agree. Eagle Pass is where the Mossberg factory is. I assume Mossberg has adequate security. ;-)

I don't know. Fort Hood got shot up pretty good before they took him out. You would think a military base would have armed people everywhere.

Anyone want to predict what will happen when the cartels are declared FTO (Foreign Terrorist Orgs)?

Oh my, history would have to repeat itself. Columbus, NM was invaded by Pancho Villa, causing American deaths in 1916.

During this time, General (not yet) Patton killed one or more bad guys with his legendary ivory-gripped revolver(s).
One was an 1873 Peacemaker (.45 LC?) and the other was a more modern Smith and Wesson in .357.

SIA
America.....just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need
to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us feel uncomfortable.

Hunter S. Thompson, Kentucky Colonel, gonzo journalist. 1937-2005.

I thought about Panco Villa after I posted that.

You can pretty much guarantee they don't.

Unfortunately that will be far too late...
