    El Paso Mayor, Columbus New Mexico Mayor Arrested

    Several people were arrested for gun smuggling. Is it a little too late?

    Ten people in southwestern New Mexico, including the village's mayor, police chief and a village trustee of Columbus were arrested Thursday on federal charges of smuggling approximately 200 weapons into Mexico.

    One of the suspects, 24-year-old Ignacio Villalobos, is still at large. A Mexican national, 25-year-old Manuel Ortega was also apprehended.

    I am all for gun ownership in the hands of citizens but never to the bad guys. The violence in Mexico is going to require direct intervention by our troops and it will be bloody and costly, but it is the only way.

    We have the Drug Cartels on US soil more than is reported in the Obamedia. We have to fight fire with over whelming power and fire power.

    "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"

    The thread title is a little misleading. The story is out of El Paso, but the El Paso mayor has not been arrested.
