It’s hard to believe that a significant portion of Texas residents aren’t already part of the gun owner community. However, in border towns, the number of those who aren’t gun owners continues to dwindle as Americans there feel increasingly unprotected against surging numbers of illegal aliens streaming through their communities, bringing crime with them.
Residents who are tired of having their dogs killed, being robbed in their homes, and having their outbuildings burglarized are increasingly turning to the great equalizer to protect their families.
Some are admittedly uneasy about teaching themselves and their kids how to use guns to defend themselves from attack, but desperate times — and an open border — call for desperate measures.
Migrants have killed pets, stolen from shops and knocked on doors late at night in a Texas border town, prompting some residents to arm themselves, locals told Fox News.
“I don’t feel safe,” Laura Ramos, an Eagle Pass business owner, told Fox News. She said she keeps “several weapons” at her store for defense.
Griselda, another local business owner whose employees are all female, said she used to close her business at 9 p.m.
“We now close at seven because it gets dark, people are walking around, all girls, you just never know,” she told Fox News. …
“I live far from the downtown, but in that area, it’s a lot of ranch[es], a lot of big properties,” Cindy told Fox News. She said migrants went onto one property, “and in order to steal something, they killed the dogs.”
“They are like robbing stuff or killing animals to eat,” Cindy continued. “So that’s what concerns me.”
Welcome to the firearm fraternity, folks. Better late than never.
After all, the only thing that stops bad people with evil in their hearts is a good guy (or gal) with a gun. And when seconds count, police are minutes away – on a good day.
