So where is the call to ban the Mexican flag?
I really don't see the importance of whether it was the Fed's personal or service gun: in either case, he and every non-felon US citizen, has a right to bear arms thus he was in no way wrong for being robbed. Don't blame the victim. Furthermore, the lunacy of gun registration, waiting periods, or "assault weapon" bans would not have prevented this tragedy. The only thing that might have is to actually enforce immigration law, and part of that is diligently deporting anyone in the country illegally every time they are in the country illegally. The accused had been in the US since 2009, it's not like he just popped over the border. I think we can agree that the only way one could be sure that the accused didn't kill the victim is if he wasn't in the same country at all.
That's the real issue, that's the crux of the matter: every single person in the country illegally is, by definition, a criminal since they have broken immigration law. They may, or may not, be good people otherwise, but given the willingness to break this federal law, it is hardly a stretch to posit that they as a group would statistically be more inclined to break others. The present case is someone at the end of the bell curve, but given my first point and crime statistics, not as far as a random sample of US citizens.
Call me a cynical and suspicious bastard, but I can't help but wonder if somehow this is related to something like Fast & Furious? He wanted to shoot sea lions?
