Scary stuff.  Unless these Americans are fishing for a living in order to put food on the table, I don’t know why the hell you would risk fishing and/or boating if you knew a Mexican drug gang (Los Zetas) was cruising around robbing people. Seems like a dumb risk, even if you are armed.

Also, since when can you just freely drive across borders (water or land)? I thought it was a universal thing that you needed to go through a port of entry or have prior authorization of some sort.  Also, can U.S. citizens normally fish freely in Mexico?  That’s what it sounds like in the article and video.

I’m sick of hearing about shit like this.  When is that damn fence going to be complete already?  And will it extend through the water part of the border? :D

Salt Lake City, UT – Sixteen-year-old Maile Fine was pronounced dead at Intermountain Medical Center Thursday after an apparent joke about Russian Roulette went horribly wrong.

Though friends with him at the time said he had taken the bullets out of the gun, when Fine pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger the firearm went off and the bullet struck him.

The 4 basic rules of gun safety as advocated by the late Marine Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper can not be stressed enough:

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

It’s just not worth taking the risk and violating any of those points.
