Default Stolen Guns Headed to Mexico

I know some of yíall saw this on Facebook, but figured Iíd share here....


The BorderPatrol Ranch Liason sent me these pics yesterday to ask if I was missing these items because BP was called after 3 illegals were spotted on a ranch a few miles south of where I am.

After 24 hours of investigation, BP figured out that the items were stolen from a residence on a ranch near Asherton, TX less than 10 miles from where they dropped their load.

Pay attention folks, the ILLEGAL ďImmigrantsĒ came into our COUNTRY to rob a house and transport these weapons, coins, and currency back to Mexico. This was obviously a southbound shipment to pay a debt to CŃRTELS in MEXICO!

Would this be acceptable in your backyard?

I live in a nice neighborhood in Baton Rouge and it wonít be a neighbor stealing from me more than likely. Itís probably a crack head from North BR or a meth head from the LP.

There’s a large amount worth of money in gold there. I bet the owner is glad to get that stuff back.

Really hope he gets them back. That stock/holster for that broom handle is worth a couple grand by itself. Would suck to see it held up in federal custody.

And whatís odd, for lack of a better word, itís as though certain politicians donít want people to know the truth that itís more than just Hispanics crossing illegally. Of course, I donít think like a politician either and am not out to deceive and manipulate.

It’s really unfair that there is a media blackout coming from Mexico
A few years ago there was a mass shooting in villa Hidalgo just up river from Laredo with over 50 deaths and we guys
Just a couple of miles away didn’t hear a word about it
Strange stuff goes on daily down south

Every time I hear the dems say "but they're just here for a better life and to escape persecution at home" I want to puke. When they come through out place, they leave faucets running full blast, they steal anything they can carry, and, before we really secured our camps well, they broke in and made a huge mess for no reason whatsoever. They leave the windows and doors open on blinds, and I've had them take my game cams and throw them in the brush just to keep me from getting photos of them. And, before the wetback defenders come here and tell me it could be citizens doing the damage, we are miles down dirt roads and behind 3 locked gates.

Thanks for sharing.

We will see it on National News if a couple of those guns are "illegal" and a simple rancher was in possession of prohibited weapons. It took an illegal immigrant to out this "gun hoarder in the middle of nowhere", who really needs that many guns?

I'm pretty sure the butt stock on the muaser is legal because it is a antique firearm designed before 1900 or so, so they are exempt

Luger and Mauser in pristine condition and with all matching serial numbers could be worth a small fortune. I have a friend who has an Artillery Officers model Luger matching numbers long barrel with attachable stock and leather holster and snail drum magazine. I saw him turn down $15k for it about 40 years ago at Dallas gun show. No telling what it's worth today.
Hope the owner gets his collection back, especially the coins.

Something else that the media is pretty silent on and that is how many of these illegals are from the middle east and Africa, and these are young males. My brother says that probably less than half of the illegals he catches are Mexican citizens. But according to the Liberals out there is no National Security issue.

I've been kicking this around for a while...guessing you need the muscle of feds for eminent domain concerns along with other issues I'm not considering for TX to do it alone?? It's recently become a little more intimate.

Buddy on our lease is losing 28 acres of farming land south of Weslaco with the wall from money already allocated / planned for a barrier...he understands the necessity & politics, but still fighting to make sure he is compensated. He knows he could not win a fight to keep it from happening, but how does a 'farming' / land owner get compensated accurately per acre for not only the value of the land itself but that said land also produces 28 acres of income per year?? What a mess & you multiply it by thousands of acres / owners.

I wonder if those farmers will take into account those years they took gov't money?

It will never be easy, and it's a dirty business however you go about it. It's been happening for hundreds of years for everything from highways to shopping malls....just get it done and then hand New Mexico the blueprints.

Kalifornia is, and will remain the largest problem because it is populated by the dumbest humans on this earth.
