Borderline insanity

Gee, I wonder why people in Mexico think guns are easy to get in the United States?  And, whether or not downtown Phoenix is really so dangerous that folks need to walk around with pistols.  Well, there was a threat on the streets of Phoenix last Friday…  little girls dressed as butterflies.

Children … and their mothers… protested last Friday against Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration sweeps. Arpaio has been focusing country law enforcement on “illegal” immigrants (rather, than like county sheriff’s everywhere else in the United States, on local criminals within his country, leaving immigration to immigration agents… who don’t respond to burglary calls in Phoenix).

The local gun-toting nativists showed up, armed and ready.  For??? Well, as a  middle aged woman told the Phoenix New Times‘ Stephen Lemmons, “There could be killers in that crowd.”

Yeah, probably one carrying a gun.  Not dressed as a butterfly.

    Some consider it a mark of freedom to be able to pack heat anyoldwhere they want.

    I consider it a much greater mark of freedom to not have to worry about meeting one of those nutters.
