It is simple. I wish our country would get a spine.It is a sad state if affairs along our southern border and to make it even worse we condone it. Think I am kidding-come to Florida-you had better know some Spanish. I don't even go to the Miami area any more.
The media also helps make it look like a "kid with a gun" was just some poor Mexican kid instead of a drug smuggler.
If the media told the truth, people would probably be crying for military support on the border.
I had an aunt and uncle and 2nd cousin that lived in Ft. Lauderdale and they call kept at least 5 handguns in their homes. I think that was also part of the reason why my cousin had that antique Tommy Gun in the glass cabinet. Always had a fully loaded drum magazine with .45ACP.
All of them also had concealed carry licenses since the law went into effect there back in the late 80's.
