    Although CNN's ratings would probably love a good gun battle between Arellano Felix and the considerably larger population of Tijuana.

    Well since the cartels are already not scared of the Mexican authorities I doubt a few armed citizens will have an impact.

    I see that you arent going to actually address what I said.
    I'll accept that as a concession of the point. Thanks.

    Oh, a few armed citizens is far more terrifying than regular army. That's been proven time and again throughout history, and in particular throughout Mexican history.

    Regular army you can see coming, and they make such nice targets--assuming they can't be bribed first. Regular folk are everywhere and blend in so well they are harder to pick off; additionally, since they presumably don't like the cartels, the efficacy of bribery is greatly diminished.

    lul I know this, it seems others aren't very educated in the matter as they continue to prove everytime they post about us citizens buying select fire weapons and sending them to mexico.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
