Devil's advacate

If you have watched the news at all you will recognize this picture of the Marine that accidently crossed the Mexican border with guns and ammo in his car and most everyone here in the US is outraged at their insensitivity to the situation; but let me play the Devil's advocate for just a bit. That country does not allow guns in the hands of their is their law and this man for whatever reason showed up there with them. Also does anyone remember Fast and Furious?  Did you ever hear Eric Holder apologize to Mexico for all the illegal guns that he sent their way? Most of us was outraged because one of those guns killed one of OUR border agents and yes I agree but maybe this has been a little one sided if you look at it from their perspective. I do hope that they will be able to see that  this Marine had no evil intent and let him come home but I think giving them time to go through their process is not unreasonable and by the way do you know how long US citizens sit in jail waiting for a hearing?

Ignorance of another countries laws does not make you innocent. If you plan to take a weapon into any foreign country, you need to be aware of their laws. If they do not allow a weapon, then you leave it at home or with someone you trust. Peace
