Always thatRegarding the gangs and stuff, all the Coloradoans need to remember is the “make my day” law. You don’t even have to ask who it is. If somebody breaks into your house for anything, you’ve got a right to defend yourself. …Level thingsYour articles seem to be fairly soft on the illegal immigration issue. One important factor, I believe, to level the playing field, as Mexico is definitely a land of many opportunities, is the fact that Americans cannot work, are not allowed to own a business, and in some cases cannot own property in the country of Mexico.

The growth of human beings into their territory and the taking of their territory for your houses, your little Vail Resorts ski areas and all that stuff. That’s what takes the animals. That’s what reduces the herds down to nothing. That’s what kills the animals. That’s why the animals are disappearing, not because of hunters and fishermen. OK?
