But for Texas ranchers in the Rio Grande Valley, the border has never been more dangerous. And they are stocking up with the hardware to do the job that the Feds refuse to do â€“ AK47 rifles to defend their property and lives from border violence.
Barbed wire fencing doesnâ€™t keep illegal aliens off the property anymore. One Starr County, TX rancher doesnâ€™t have time to worry about the illegals these days. He now worries about the smugglers protecting their loads.
â€śI donâ€™t think they would have any conscience of taking someoneâ€™s life,â€ť the rancher says.
He saw that will to kill firsthand. A smuggler shot at him on his own land.
â€śOne round was fired at me, and it missed my head by about two feet,â€ť says the rancher.
He says thereâ€™s only way to react.
â€śFire all the rounds you have, reload, and do it again,â€ť says the rancher.
The local Armory Gun Store says business has been brisk for AK-47s and AR-15s from â€ścountlessâ€ť ranchers reporting break-ins and home invasions. But this rancher said no matter how many guns they buy, they will always be â€śoutgunnedâ€ť by the cartels.
I guess these ranchers didnâ€™t get the memo from Obama and Big Sis that their border is â€śsafer than everâ€ť.
