Well, it seems you're a little behind the level of staying informed of the activities on the United States southern border. You make comparisons
between Mexico and Canada? Well.. It's amusing, but pathetic to be quite blunt about it. Why? Well.... golly...
That isn't happening in Canada. Canada doesn't have 10's of thousands dead and being killed daily from an ongoing civil war. Mexico most certainly
does with no signs of it stopping anytime soon. Canada doesn't see it's Police Chiefs and Mayors decapitated and left on roadsides for a macabre
display and message to the public about resisting the power of the Cartels.
You're somewhat one track on your thinking here. Border Security = Xenophobia. Well... You're flat wrong and the map above is only one of a few
reasons how Canada and Mexico have almost nothing whatsoever in common.
I'd live on the Canadian border without so much as a second thought with little more than my usual firearms for hunting and general self defense like
I have here in Missouri. You could't GIVE me a mansion on the Mexican border free, with a staff to run the place. If I HAD to stay on one, I'd have a
class III permit for special weapons before you could say Boo and still feel under-powered. The graphic above says it all for why.
The specific cases of violence on the border, on a regular basis is also why...and another aspect NOT shared on our Northern Border. It's comparing
apples and watermelons.
