Isn’t this one of the reasons why we have a Second Amendment? Now, I am against the war on (some) drugs, but I don’t see this as a crime or a drug problem. The citizens of another nation are entering the country and committing violence against the citizens of this nation, and against duly authorized government officials. The FedGov will do nothing about it, because they are corrupt and wish to use this issue as a bargaining chip to forward their own agenda.
It is time that the citizens of the area start taking care of the problem themselves. Any foreign national caught in this country with a weapon should be treated as an enemy combatant, and shot on sight. I have said for the last three years, that it is only a matter of time before the border conflict between illegals and residents erupts into open warfare.
