Using Beanbags to Protect Our Border

No, I’m not kidding – from the Arizona Daily Star:

Border Patrol agents shot beanbags at a group of suspected bandits before the men returned fire during a confrontation in a remote canyon, killing agent Brian Terry with a single gunshot, records show…

Beanbags? BEANBAGS? We’re defending our border from ruthless and well-armed gangsters with beanbags…we’re not even bringing a knife to a gunfight; we’re bringing a child’s toy.

Armed men crossing a border illegally are not coming over to do nice things to people – they are invading our country with the intent of doing harm. The merest fact that they are armed and on our side of the border relieves our forces for any concern about whether lethal force is justified – it is, immediately and without warning. We have a fricking government for the primary purpose of defending us against outsiders…and our government is sending men armed with beanbags to fight criminals armed with AK-47’s.

This is criminal negligence. Whoever thought up the idea of beanbags must be immediately discharged. Laws must be passed to make it clear that deadly force is always authorized when dealing with armed men crossing the border. No more of this nonsense – no more dead border patrol agents because some PC pinhead decided that armed gangsters crossing our border deserve a second chance…

UPDATE: A BATF agent says he was ordered to allow cross-border gun running. Our nation is being run by people who have no grasp of what the world is like.
