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 ā AK47 rifles to defend their property and lives from border violence.
Barbed wire fencing doesnāt keep illegal aliens off the property anymore. One Starr County, TX rancher doesnāt have time to worry about the illegals these days. He now worries about the smugglers protecting their loads.
āI donāt think they would have any conscience of taking someoneās life,ā the rancher says.
He saw that will to kill firsthand. A smuggler shot at him on his own land.
āOne round was fired at me, and it missed my head by about two feet,ā says the rancher.
He says thereās only way to react.
āFire all the rounds you have, reload, and do it again,ā says the rancher.
The local Armory Gun Store says business has been brisk for AK-47s and AR-15s from ācountlessā ranchers reporting break-ins and home invasions. But this rancher said no matter how many guns they buy, they will always be āoutgunnedā by the cartels.
I guess these ranchers didnāt get the memo from Obama and Big Sis that their border is āsafer than everā.
