At over 370 reported cases last year alone, Phoenix Arizona ranks 2nd in the World in the number of annual reported abductions, second only to Mexico City. Additionally, Mexico is considered by some to be on the brink of collapse:
. . . Mexican Drug Cartel (MDC´s) their gangs are kidnapping and killing citizens on both sides of the U.S. Mexican border. The kidnappings and killings of Americans should be providing an unexpected challenge to President Barack Obama's new government. In its latest report anticipating possible global security risks, the U.S. Joint Forces Command states that Mexico is at risk of a "rapid and sudden collapse." . . .Do you have guns & ammo? If so, good. You may one day suddenly find yourself in need of them. If you don't have any, you may want to get some, if you can find them. It is far better to have the tools of self defense and not need them, than to suddenly find yourself in great need of them & not have them.
. . . In what officials caution is now a dangerous and even deadly crime wave, Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone . . .
Arizona´s Phoenix has become the kidnapping capital of the USA. Phoenix and Tucson police report over 400 kidnappings of Americans are being investigated and officials fear many more kidnappings and murders of Americans are already out of control.
An ABC News' investigation uncovered horrific cases of chopped-off hands, legs and heads when a victim's family doesn't pay up fast enough . . .
Some authorities admit privately that no one really knows how many Americans have been kidnapped here in the USA and taken to Mexico and how many were killed. Some of the kidnappings were for ransom, but most violence and killings were retaliation by the MDC´s.
"We're in the eye of the storm," Phoenix Police Chief Andy Anderson told ABC News of the violent crimes and ruthless tactics spurred by Mexican Drug Cartels that have expanded business across the border. "If it doesn't stop here, if we're not able to fix it here and get it turned around, it will go across the nation," he said . . .
Every time I go to Walmart I check their ammo counter to see if they have any 9mm, .45, or .22 in stock so that I can boost my ammo cache. Ever since last fall they're usually all sold out. A couple of days ago my wife scored some ammo for me during her shopping trip - Walmart happened to have four 550 rd bricks of .22. I had her buy all four. The stuff lasts forever, I'll get old long before it does.
