You Texans had better start buying more Marlin X7's because you're going to need then to ward off the Mexican cartel invasion that is beginning to take place. I realize the X7's are really no match against the AR10's,15's, and AK-47's, that the drug runners are using, but using the X7's could maybe slow down their pace and make them think twice about crossing the border. A few X7 snipers along our border might make a difference. That episode regarding the Arizona rancher having to pay some Mexican illegal immigrants $87000 for invading his property really has left a bad taste in the mouths of many Americans. I am wondering if the jury involved in his trial didn't exist of illegal immagrants. I hope this scenario doesn't repeat itself in your state of Texas. So buy more X7's you Texans, you're going to need them.
