I agree with you both; it is an exercise in futility; however, I continue to participate to put my stance on record. I would love to see the USA I grew up in return. Sometimes there is the glean of hope.
However, as you said^^^^
"It wouldn't last. Just for the simple fact that people in general are driven by power and greed. They have turned away from the core beliefs this country was founded on and they have turned their backs on God. Without him, nothing is possible. This has been a huge problem many years prior to these events. "
I know mine ARE; they are goose steppers toeing the delusional lines of Chucky "weasel boy" Schumer and Nacy "LOOOOOOney" tune Pelosi.
I continuously email them and often receive their patronizing BS answers. When their manure is confronted with actual facts, nothing but silence.
I guess it depends on the areas. I have a friend that works for the company I work for that used to live in AZ and they moved to Mexico because they got a good deal on a beach front condo in Mexico. The community is a closed community and the school her son is going to teaches all kids from people from the US. She said it's pretty safe in that area, being that it's a very touristy place, the government protects it a great deal since tourism is a major contributor to Mexico's economy.
On the other hand, I just got back from the border in TX because an aunt of mine died and she had no family, so I had to go to Mexico to make burial arrangements. There was a military check point and a force of about 800 soldiers living in new housing in the town I grew up in. There was a lot of federal police as well. It's not uncommon to see armed police and military now a days, thanx to the F**ng cartels that rolled into border towns to control the traffic of drugs and people. When there were wars between the 2 major cartels across the border from my house, I used to hear machine gun fire and even grenades going off across from my house in TX, which is 3 blocks from the border. But you are all correct, foreigners have little rights in Mexico.
@rhyno You may be very well right. But I also see this as a very good sign. All these ideas we're Trump campaign promises. The idea that other republicans are getting on board with Trump and his plan is great.
Would do the ATF well to rethink it's strategy on how it views gun owners in this country. If they keep treating us as if we are all criminals, they are going to continue meeting resistance in EVERYTHING they do.
He is not the polished speaker that John Kennedy was. He does not have the hearts of the people in the way that Franklin Roosevelt did in the midst of the Great Depression. He is not the rhetorical master that Abraham Lincoln was. But more than any President I have ever heard or read at an inaugural, he laid out his agenda, showed how that agenda is a fundamental break from the political past, and promised his supporters that he would not betray them. The implication is obvious: previous Presidents have all betrayed them. And they have. Four of them were standing behind him when he said it. This was a breach of etiquette. I loved it.
Well, I hope it goes through.
I will need to update my skills, that is for sure.
I was hoping we would have the planned indoor private range done by now, but shifty politics keep pushing it out further and further.
Well if this goes to the Supreme Court and they rule in favor of the Kansas people it could effectively change the entire NFA act. If a state has the same law as Kansas does, then all bets are off as long as the firearm, ammo, or accessory is made and kept in the same state.
It could also still have benefits even if they loose the case. The NRA could argue that if a state isn't allowed to undermine the federal law on firearms, then a state should not be able to supersede the federal law either.
