    Well, I'm from New Zealand.

    It would have been better if the people in the building had been armed.

    Much better.

    imagine how differently this would have played out if Daniel Stein, 71; Joyce Feinberg, 75; Richard Gottfried, 65; Rose Mallinger, 97; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66; brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal 54; husband and wife Bernice Simon, 84 and Sylvan Simon, 86; Melvin Wax, 88; and Irving Younger, 69 had all been in a position to return fire
    I guess that's why they build armies out of senior citizens. They have the best aim.

    cecil and david rosenthal weren't senior citizens by any stretch of the imagination

    and my 92 year old father who's still driving can handle a gun as well (and as safely) as he did when he was a teen and an officer in the army

    now, my 91 year old mother? the recoil from a 45 would probably break the bones in her hand

    but imagine the different outcome in that synagogue if someone on site had been able to respond with lethal force

    There'd be no story. Liberals hate a happy ending.

    An AR chambered in 5.56 NATO, with its unique recoil system (it's like a car's shock absorber right in the butt), is almost like shooting a 10/22.

    For handguns, a .38 revolver is pretty light on recoil. Although for the size of the round, I don't think a 1911 is too much for most people. Some companies are making 1911 patterns in 9 mm also, a more manageable recoil even still.

    Or a Glock. Or anything that will put pieces of metal into a bad guy fast.

    Let's just say it starts you on a path.
    So everyone working in Customs and border patrol is "on a path" to be a Nazi?

    I think anyone who shows up to a protest organized by a white supremacist as a participant is suspect.

    Have you dealt with CBP in the US? If they're not Nazis, they do a pretty good impression of it, to the extent that you can in a post like that. Is guarding the border inherently like that? No. But the way it's done in this country tends to be.

    Or, maybe they just know what the rally is about and don't know who organized it or their background.

    The Canadian and Mexican check points I've crossed have been pretty much identical. No matter which way you were going.
    It's a border crossing, what's is supposed to be like?

    I guess Rex would prefer a more Wal-Mart Door Greeter type of Border experience.
