Open letter to the state legislature

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sure you’re aware by now that our borders are less than secure and that a goodly amount of the invaders from the south are not small children. Many of those coming across are members of the MS13 gang, which is touted to be one of the most dangerous gangs in the world. In addition, Muslim prayer blankets have been reportedly found at the border indicating that in all likelihood we may have Muslim extremists entering as well, though we all know full well that some have been here for some time.

There are many who feel that the time is coming soon when the American way of life will be in great jeopardy and we will be in for the fight of our lives on several fronts for our very survival. Sadly, our survival is being threatened by the very government we the people elected to protect us. The state of California appears to being doing nothing to stem the tide of the illegal immigrants entering but actually seems to be encouraging more to enter.

While many may be genuinely interested in making a better life you can be assured that there are some who want only to cause death and destruction. I would also point out that legislators and their families will likely not be immune to this and in fact will probably be prime targets for these savages. This is a time when all American people should be building a defense arsenal and preparing for the storm we all know is coming. It seems, though, that the California government is more intent on disarming its people and limiting our access to weapons and ammunition.

My question ladies and gentlemen — whose side are you on?
