A night with the Minutemen

Local columnist Gordon Dillow has an excellent column about his trip to the CA-Mexico border with the California Minutemen. Note especially that the Minutemen were actually shot at from unseen parties on the other side of the fence and did not return fire (so much for being "vigilantes", eh?), but were accosted by San Diego County Sheriff's deputies and told that they'd be arrested if they continued to carry their own firearms. Sheesh.

It's certainly becoming more obvious that this kind of effort is helping (Dillow reports that a truckful of illegals and their smuggler were apprehended after being spotted by a Minuteman patrol, and verbal confrontations with people on the other side of the fence, who ostensibly would have come through in pursuit of whatever goals they had, had the watchers not been there).
