Border Patrol Finds Assault Rifles and Hand Grenades Along Rio Grande

Must be those hand grenades that we sell in pawn shops here in the states:

RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas — The U.S. Border Patrol reports its agents found a cache of weapons concealed in the brush near the Rio Grande in far South Texas.

A Border Patrol statement issued Monday says agents working a remote area about 55 miles up the river from McAllen found the cache of weapons and paramilitary-style gear.

Among the items found Friday were four assault-style rifles, two hand grenades, body armor, two-way radios, military-style uniforms and 16 fully loaded 30-round ammunition clips.

No arrests were reported relating to the find.

Gee, anyone think that assault rifles, hand grenades and military equipment might be coming from a corrupt military in a hollow state where warlords control vast swaths of the country? Nah. Must be we terrible Americans supplying these guys.

    This is one of the rare cases I agree with you, Rob. What the gun-grabbers fail to mention is that those very weapons they found are illegal in the United States. Thus, America and our looser gun laws are not to blame. Mexico has very strict gun laws, and we all know how that is working out.

    We have to stop being just reactive but beomce more proactive. We have to pinpoint the reason or reasons why there are ‚c4faterrorists‚c4f9 attacks. Then we must devote our efforts to resolving or settling the issues that cause such extreme actions. The world, as I see it, is in a state of anarchy. Do we have any idea the cost we have been enduring over the past ten or so years? Why?
