    When something like this happens it's a sad day for all of us. Doug's work is known the world over, and to have this happen to his display while in a secured building is unthinkable. Just asking people to keep their eyes open...

    It is a sad day when people steriotype others. Mexicans are not the only thieves in this world. Too bad prejudice is still alive in this wonderful country.

    I lived in Texas ,..went to that same gun show many times as it was two blocks from the hospital I worked at...The illegal olive skinned non indigenous populants who also found the event attractive were constantly trying to straw purchase...present false ID...were scouring the parking areas for potential firearms to borrow without authorization....no less than 100 vehicle break-ins per 3 day event.. thats per my very good DPD Sargeant friend....most of the thieves were just bored..looking for something to get into while waiting for their wives to drop a new citizen whose birth was covered on our dime...then given all the charity they could handle......I'm being polite..but y'all know where you can put your PC....You have no idea of the battle until you've been in the trenches..gang drug violence on full moon Fridays had the ER hopping with knifing and shooting victims being hauled in wearing cuffs at a pace quick enough to fill a Greyhound bus every couple hrs.... no mercy here...patch em up ..pack em up and send their butts back home across the river

    The local police dept. sleeps inside the building at the gun shows in my area. At least 3 officers spend all weekend inside. Not a bad idea...Larry Lockhart

    I find it to be a stretch that the place would not be guarded with anything worth that amount of money and more ... Something is FISHY in Dallas, thats for damn sure ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    The best book i have ever read on the subject is State Of Emergency by Patrick Buchanan. I highly recommend this book if you are at all concerned about illegal immigration. It will scare the crap out of you but is very informative. Just FYI

    Stupidity and bigotry are not virtues nor are they patriotic.

    Actually I am now in southern Arizona. From where I have been spending my winters the border is about 6 miles south. Still think you are closer to reality than I am?

    It's probably going to turn out to be some white guy, hiring illegals to supply his collection...
