... "Regular readers will recall how the criminal enterprise started by rogue Mexican special forces operatives has expanded its influence—first as enforcers for the Gulf Cartel and now as a rival power.

... "On the rack with all the old sporting rifles, I saw one that looked out of place. With its phosphate (a/k/a 'Parkerized') finish, protected front sight and flash hider-equipped barrel protruding from a fine wooden stock I thought it might be a variant of the Ruger Mini-14. But this one turned out to be something else entirely: Australian International Arms M10-A2 (pictured above.)"

Perhaps your property is big enough that a shotgun might not reach out and touch someone at distance. Or perhaps the look of a black gun will even further intimate any intruder to go farther. But really, say what you will, it is badass to be able to play with the same equipment our troops use to annihilate the bad guys in the sandbox." ...

"'Mexico has some of the strictest gun laws in the hemisphere,' the LA Times editorial board tells us, accurately enough. '... The goal of this parsimonious approach to allotting firearms is a society free from gun violence.' If only they’d stopped there. Or simply paused a moment to fully and fairly assess the causes and effects of Mexico’s gun control conundrum. Nope. 'Unfortunately for Mexico, however, its weapons management strategy is sabotaged by an accident of location — its residence next door to the gun capital of the world.' Here we go . . ." ...

"Columnist Michael Kelly is absolutely correct in his assertion that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution exists, in its original context, to give American citizens the means to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. That is called self-defense and why that amendment is viable today. To ask if any American would 'support the right to gun down police officers' is totally ludicrous. Of course not." ...

The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed;... — Thomas Jefferson to Justice John Cartwright, 1824. ME 16:45.
