They have another... We have illegals in every nook and cranny of the country... What if the majority of them aren't illegals, but actual military? or forces bought by the drug cartels... With the blessing of both govts to start attacking....

You guys just go ahead and shoot yourselves up - literally with bullets and with drugs, and figuratively with propaganda.
Is there any nation more screwed up right now? Maybe you are on a par with Russia in terms of the turmoil and dangerousness of everyday life for the average Joe.
Something is getting seriously more wrong with the American way every single day. The situation on your southern border and in your cities is unbelievably chaotic. All you see is a spiraling up of violence everywhere.
Where will it all end and how soon will it be? Who are you going to take down with you?
This world needs a new leader, and fast.
I live in NYC my whole life. Nearly 40 years. I've seen crimes occur, been the victim of crime and know many who were victims. At this time we have between 30 and 40 thousand police here. Never have I seen a police officer there to prevent a crime. Never. Yet, we are told to call 911 in case of an emergency. If it's an emergency do you think I have the time to get the phone, dial 911, wait for an answer, explain the situation, give the address then wait for the police to arrive? All while fending off an attacker?

Problem is, the drug dealers will STILL figure out ways to get guns, and then we as a population will be totally defenseless as they run rampant.
DHS isn't thinking about that. I don't think they have the manpower to stop an invasion of cartels if it were to happen.

It is incomprehensible to me that so many of you actually want to be able to engage heavily armed criminals in an outright gun battle.
What kind of society is that? Ordinary citizens should not need paramilitary training and skills just to survive in their own neighbourhood. Do any of you not see how ridiculous that sounds? I swear, some of you do seem to salivate over the idea though.
That is not what a civilized society is supposed to be like. I understand that government has failed to provide the peace and security you all deserve, but taking up arms yourself is just a reversion to barbarism.

MORE guns in the hands of good men, pointed at those F-ers and smoking are what's needed. They drive around my city (Phoenix) with 'Sinaloa' on the back of their vehicles in big letters for all to see. They kidnapped a 5 year old in Mexico for ransom and when they thought the authorities there were on to them, they injected him with acid (not '___', but acid). A five year old little boy.

Well what you have to understand is "the law is the law" If they come knocking on your door demanding your firearms, you better do as they say, otherwise you are BREAKING THE LAW, by not doing what you are ordered to do. It doesn't matter if you disagree with gun bans or not. It's the law, YOU FOLLOW IT!
