Stranded Samaritans assisted by Border Patrol
TUCSON, Ariz. Two women from a local humanitarian group received assistance from Nogales Station Border Patrol agents after finding themselves stranded in the Tumacacori Mountains Friday night.
The women, volunteers from the Tucson-based Samaritans humanitarian group, became stranded when their vehicle failed to start. Fortunately, at least one of the women had a GPS device equipped with a button for summoning help.
Two Border Patrol agents from the Nogales Stations All-Terrain Vehicle unit found the women after receiving a call from the womans husband who relayed the coordinates from the GPS device. Temperatures were below freezing when the women were found.
Agents were able to jump-start the Samaritan's vehicle and then followed them to I-19 to ensure their safety. The Samaritans stopped at the checkpoint to thank the Border Patrol; both appeared to be in good condition.
The Sonoran Desert is dangerous and prolonged exposure to the harsh environment can be deadly. While the desert is most commonly associated with extreme heat, temperatures can drop drastically in the winter and hard winter freezes are common. The Tucson Sector has thousands of agents trained as First Responders who are able to provide aid to anyone in need, regardless of nationality.
Customs and Border Protection welcomes assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free. ~CBP~
All CBP assets in Arizona were realigned under a unified command structure in February 2011. Joint Field Command Arizona unifies the Tucson and Yuma Border Patrol Sectors and Air Branches, as well as the Tucson Field Office, to enhance border security, commercial enforcement and trade facilitation missions to meet Arizonas unique challenges. Follow us on Twitter @CBPArizona or visit http://www.cbp.gov/Arizona for more information.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

Retaining our freedoms is possible, but its up to you. Victory in Illinois? This time not because of a court decision but because of the tireless efforts of the supporters of self defense. YOU. On the first Sunday of 2013, after a surprise session of the Judiciary committee who sought to meet with only 24 hours notice, their plans of sneaking in a ban of virtually 50% of semiautomatic rifles and as high as 80% of semiautomatic handguns, not to mention high capacity magazines went up in smoke.

"Congress could lower individual rates across the board by 44âpercent and come up with the same amount of revenue if it eliminated all tax breaks" Washington Post reporter Josh Hicks noted in a January 10. Given the ongoing battles over taxes, spending, and the national debt in Congress, you'd think this would be worthy of front-page placement in the Post. Editors apparently disagreed, placing it on the bottom of page A13, today's edition of The Fed Page. "Congress should simplify the tax code to ease the burden on filers, as well as take a hard look at the myriad tax breaks that cost nearly as much revenue as the government generates from individual income taxes," Hicks noted in his lead paragraph, referring to National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson's annual report to Congress. "[T]he existing code of 4 million words imposes a 'significant, even unconscionable' burden of compliance on taxpayers," Hicks noted, quoting Olson.
This is common sense, but sense is neither common nor sensible to an ideologue as when Pres Obama was asked by a lefty journalist on if raising taxes on the top 2% was a good thing when it would cost 700,000 jobs and only fund the government for 8 days, Obama said it did not matter if it was good or right, it was what was fair. the rich needed to pay their fair share so it was immaterial how many jobs were lost or what taxes were actually brought in. Fox mentioned that by raising taxes less tax revenue comes in which is fact based with the Reagan recovery and Clinton high times of which Clinton took Reagan's credit and the MSM who hates Reagan were all to happy to give Clinton this false credit.

Other 2nd Amendment News
The right to own a firearm was considered by both the Framers of the Constitution in 1787 and by the current Supreme Court to be equal in importance to the right to speak freely, the right to peaceably assemble and the right to practice religion. These liberties are guaranteed to each of us by the first two amendments to the Constitution in the Bill of Rights.
Thomas Sowell, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, wrote in National Review: If you dont want to have a gun in your home or in your school, that your choice. But dont be such a damn fool as to advertise to the whole world that you are in a gun-free environment where you are a helpless target for any homicidal fiend who is armed. Is it worth a human life to be a politically correct moral exhibitionist?

"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
