The wages of Mexican gun control.

When you lose your right to arms, guess which right you lose next?

Tortured, disemboweled and hung from a bridge for tweeting: Couple killed by Mexican drug cartel as gruesome warning to bloggers who 'snitch' online:

A couple have been found hanging from a bridge in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo after being disembowelled and mutilated by attackers.

The motive for the gruesome attack was to warn social media users not to criticise Mexican drug cartels on the internet.

Next to the battered bodies was a sign reading: ‘This is going to happen to all those posting funny things on the internet, You better (expletive) pay attention. I’m about to get you.’

The Mexican people have been rendered defenseless in their own country, leaving them to live at the whim of the narco-terrorists. This is the CSGV's "monopoly of force" theory in action. Unfortunately, their theory does not take into account a corrupt and/or inept government such as the Mexican government.

When the pot calls the kettle black.

If I recall correctly, the gun banners/controllers are all for "states rights" (states don't have rights to begin with) when it comes to the latest anti-gun piece of legislation.

Garcia, Mexico (CNN) -- Officials in a northern Mexican city plagued by violence say a new course will take a fresh approach toward protecting citizens: Training people to handle and shoot guns.

The aim of the approach, says Garcia Mayor Jaime Rodriguez Calderon, is putting a stop to crime in the 40,000-person city in Nuevo Leon state.


Garcia's program is not the first citizen-defense proposal in Nuevo Leon state involving weapons. State lawmakers are also studying a proposal that would relax weapons restrictions there.

Take note Chicago: This is how you fight crime. You make it easier for people to protect themselves. Not harder by requiring a gun permit to go to the gun range, yet requring a trip to the gun range to get a permit.

Bloombergia: 31 people shot citywide in 48 hours

In one of the bloodiest weekends in recent city history, 31 people were brutally shot in roughly 48 hours this weekend -- including three kids at a house party-turned-shooting gallery in The Bronx.
25 people had been shot as of Sunday night, but by early Monday morning, six more people were shot in three separate incidents in Brooklyn.
Four people were shot at 12:45 a.m. at what appeared to be a barbecue on East 54th Street. One of the victims, 18-year-old Tyrief Gary, has died. The other three are in stable condition.

Apparently, someone changed the title of the article from the unflattering "Bullet Fest in the Big Apple" to it's current "31 people shot citywide in 48 hours".

It appears that America's Mayor Against Guns has some housekeeping to do. Perhaps he should stop sending goon squads around the country to spy on gun shows and instead put some of those boots on his own streets.

UPDATE: It's now 46 people shot. Some just a few blocks from Bloomberg himself.

Gun control leads to stupidity.

The institution of irrationality as law eventually leads to stupidity replacing common sense.

via the NRA-ILA:
London schoolchildren are eligible to receive 125,000 free tickets to Olympic events -- but they were initially disallowed from using the tickets for shooting events.

An unidentified source told the London Evening Standard, "We decided it would not be appropriate. It's the only sport children will not be able to go to as part of the Ticketshare scheme." And Danny Bryan, founder of Communities Against Gun and Knife Crime, said, "It is good kids should enjoy the Games but there's no way we should glorify guns."

Apparently, the fear is that children are going to see some guy poke a hole in a piece of paper with a target pistol and say to his/herself, "Gee, I oughta go out and shoot some people."

As crazy as that sounds, that has become acceptable logic in Sarah Brady Paradise. That is what happens when you allow the purely emotion and fear driven argument of "commonsense gun control" go unchecked.
