    mad 300 rounds exchanged during Texas border shootout

    It's real safe down on the Border, isn't it. I saw a program on National Geographic about the Border Patrol in the Nogles area of Arizona and that program flies in the face of Obama and Napolitano's lies about how safe it is.

    On top of this Several members of Congress from California on Friday urged Governor Jerry Brown to opt out of the federal government's "Secure Communities" program which targets illegal immigrants.

    I think there needs to be a law that jails people who refuse to obey Federal law like the Mayor & Board of Supervisors of San Francisco, the Mayors and Councils in L.A. and San Diego all are sanctuary Cities and it cost us billions every year, and the costs in California in part are picked up by the Feds.

    There are illegals in every State, and the crime they bring costs even more than just the Social programs.

    This is crazy and it's not about race because there are illegals from all over the World here taking jobs and costing us real money.

    300 rounds exchanged during Texas border shootout

    SAN ANTONIO - U.S. law enforcement officials exchanged about 300 rounds of gunfire with suspected drug runners during a pre-dawn shootout across the Rio Grande, but only about six came from the suspects, authorities said Friday.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety, whose Rangers were involved in the shootout, said such an overwhelming response was standard given the United States' zero tolerance policy when guns are pointed at its authorities. Department officials previously said the Americans were under "heavy fire," but they've since backed away from that.

    The incident began about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, when U.S. Border Patrol agents spotted a Dodge Durango near the lightly populated border town of Abram, Texas, said Steve McCraw, director of the Department of Public Safety Director. He joined officials from Border Patrol and Texas Fish and Wildlife for a news conference Friday in Weslaco, roughly 250 miles south of San Antonio and just north of the river separating Mexico and the U.S.

    I heard the Mexican government really only controls about 30% of the country. I wonder if it's true. Regardless, our dear leader needs to post the military down on the border.

    I guess this creates a good argument for open carry in Texas.

    Those who couldn't destroy America from without are now destroying it from within.

    Re: 300 rounds exchanged during Texas border shootout

    perhaps another good point - if you expended 300 rounds, how many did you hit?

    Probably none, if the firefight law of averages holds...

    "it is not the noise of our burst, but the hits that count."


    could have sworn i remember screaming that ad nauseum somewhere.



    irrespective, if we are going to start exchanging gunfire with these folks; i expect us to be better armed and to start exacting a toll in currency of blood.

    I agree with this. These traitorous scum are no different the scumbags who hire,house and or transport illegals. Therefore they should be removed from their positions,thrown in jail, and permanently barred from political office(appointed and elected).
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
