Mexico is on the verge of becoming a failed state. In the last four years over 25,000 people have been murdered in Mexico. 80% of the weapons found in Mexico can be traced back to the United States. We want to build a wall to keep them out, but the 7,000 gun stores lining the border have no problem throwing assault rifles over the fence.
We'll never stop spending the billions of dollars a year we spend on drugs. The cartels will never go away.
We could renew the assault rifle ban so it isn't so easy to murder so many children so fast.
We could start to recognize that the Mongol hordes aren't invading our country. We could start to realize that every American bullet fired into a Mexican brain creates a family of refugees. No one would want to flee their home, family and friends without good reason. A big part of the fear the average Mexican feels on a day-to-day basis is our responsibility. My sincerest apologies to those that have a lost a family member because of our addictions.
I think I'll go snort a line for the fallen.
