Hi all Amnesty and the chaos it will cause is one of my "soap box" issues. I have been doing what I can to fight it for some time and was curious of how gun owners in Ohio feel about illegal immigration and amnesty for those who broke into the country. I understand there is a human side to the debate, but I also believe in the rule of law and that we need to take care of Americans first. I honestly believe most of the people who are illegal and their anchor baby children have little loyalty to the USA. Notice all the Mexican flags when they demand rights. Now here is how I think guns are threatened by amnesty for illegals ( in addition to our education, welfare, and social security systems. Don't believe me look to CA) A majority of illegals are Latino ( yes there are many patriots that are Latino) and the majority of those are Mexican. Illegals tend to be uneducated and do manual labor. They also tend to have very large families and often since many of the kids are anchor babies they get public benefits like WIC or food stamps in addition to a free education even if the kids are illegal. According to the national council of la raza 40% of those on WIC are Latino with no breakdown of those illegal, legal, or anchor babies. Now when you take this kind of government dependence along with the fact Democrats have been trying to get amnesty for years ( yes I know about Reagan and we see it was a mistake) so I think it is fair to assume Democrats will get the Latino vote by the percentages they are now plus millions of "new democrats". Very simple for gun owners with half a brain. This means more presidents like Obama, more justices like Kagan, and more gun laws like New Jersey or worse. If they want to do something to help people that is one thing, but giving away the country is another in order just to win elections, especially when it will cost me my rights or you your rights. If amnesty goes through I predict the end of the usa ( further) as we know it within 20 years and the usa ceasing to exist within 100. We just can't afford it. Before you render an opinion or call me racist I would ask you read these two articles by a friend of mine (online acquaintance) and watch the videos at the end of the second one.

I know its devisive, but we seem in deep as a country and I think this does not help in general and this is one way that can lead to our disarmament.
