    Well, would you let your child run around the room with a loaded gun?

    Yes, the story might be accurate and true in all details. I certainly don't know.

    But given what we know about Fast & Furious and other cases of government mendacity and staged events it is hard to tell. Maybe I've been watching too many episodes of Olivia Pope and Scandal.

    It rains guns in mexico, due to the proliferation from America and the lack of ability, as well as the poor job they do of enforcing gun laws.

    You don't have to be directly part of the problem. If you sell a gun to someone, who sells it to someone else, when then uses it in a crime and kills someone then you are part of the problem. You are part of the supply chain that allows people to purchase firearms.

    If it were his own personal firearm, and we had a registration process which put penalites on people who are poor at accounting for their weapons, he may have been more inclined to do just that.

    Mexico does a poor job of enforcing any laws.

    Of course, the fact that the criminal gangs have even more firepower then the military down there says something about the problem.

    Bullets from cartel violence in Juarez frequently hit parts of El Paso, including the UTEP campus.

    Borderland Beat: Bullets from Ciudad Juarez Reaching El Paso

    Maybe UTEP and El Paso should pass an "Anti-Bullet Law", surely that will make the bullets stop before they enter the US.

    Why not? About as effective as all of those "Nuclear Ban" laws that cities and states and countries enacted in the 1980's.

    Well, it was his own personal firearm. And I am sure that is why they were quickly able to identify where it came from.

    The owner is a BLM law enforcement officer, and it was his own personal firearm. He reported it stollen last month from his POV.

    Thats not a human right violation. TD (who I was responding to)seemed to be saying he should be killed and essentially calling open season on returning immigrants... "the killer needs to be returned to mexico-one piece at a time... there is something to be said for deported felons who return being fair game." Then he essentially called for execution of returning immigrants or jail for life... "people who commit felonies-are then deported to the country from which they came and then re-entered should be shot on site or jailed for life if they are caught committing another felony since they have proven that deporting them doesn't stop their predations."

    Excuse me, WTF is a "returning immigrant"? Is that some new Politically Correct term for an illegal?
