Guns & illegals

Vice President Joe Biden made the statement that if new gun laws save one life, they will be worth it.

Readers may recall Lt. Col. Oliver North and the Iran-Contra scandal of the late ‘80s, in which the government sold weapons to support the anti-Sandinista rebels in Nicaragua. Now, our government regime has gone a step further and has supplied Mexican drug cartels with weapons through the ill-devised “Fast & Furious” program. We could have saved hundreds of lives if our government had not done that.

Did you know that you do not have to be a legal citizen of the United States to get a gun permit in Pennsylvania?

How many lives could we save if we closed our borders to illegals and deported those here? Our government does nothing to protect us. What good are new laws if the old ones are not enforced? It would be interesting to know how many crimes illegals commit.

Our leaders are the greatest actors in the world. They lie so well you can almost believe them. I'm very sad knowing our government is no longer working. It's broken — both sides, if there truly are two sides. I firmly believe we now have only one. It's a sad day for America.

Remember years ago our enemies said we could be defeated only from within. How close are we?
