"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Won't stop a single death.

All the cartels will do is move into home production - surprised they haven't done it already, it would make more sense, economically speaking. They already build their own tanks and mini subs.

But home production is hard and almost impossible!

Tell that to the Pashtun in northern Pakistan. I have seen them literally making Kalashnikov knock offs on the side of the road. Good quality, too. If we had the choice of a real one or a knock off, we'd take the knock off every single time - things were bulletproof (pun intended). You want a specific caliber or a special request (I am left handed and dislike hot brass in my face, it is battered enough already) they'll make it for you.

  • Your what hurts??
Ya know, the Taliban offered to send a peace delegation to Chicago a few months ago since they have the assassination rate down to an acceptable level in the areas they control in Afghanistan.  Maybe we need to get them down to some of these Latin American paradises to see what they can do.......
