My question is if the RV had not been seen going into Mexico would Propaganda network turn it into nationwide headline news?

Snark not helpful. Think about these people's families instead of trying to make a political statement.


This is a sad story, no doubt. But the story would of likely been told is South Texas, and in New Hampshire. IMHO, if the fact of the RV crossing the border, to make it fit the talking points, it would not of been broadcast nation wide. While I'm sure it was broadcast on other networks, on any site I have looked at, any link to the story is a link to Fox "news"

A stubby heater!
That's my go to pack/truck/carry whatever. Glad I've only scared off a bear with it and some pop bottles!

That’s terrible although less about RVs and more about society. Same chances that happens in your home, hotel room or a rest area in Nebraska
However the unsettling part is with all the border security, they don’t run plates. I’ve crossed the Canadian border multiple times with trailers with incorrect tags, new truck with no tags just a paper plate dealer loaner andmost recently a car with the previous owners plates just bought it from them.
Never been questioned except once in a dealer loaner.
Very true that it can happen anywhere, bad people don't confine themselves to one area. A few years ago a couple that worked the Kansas state fair were kidnapped and killed in Arkansas they found the couple's RV in Arkansas and caught the couple that killed them.

Some very close friends of mine in Texas had a incident where her brother who lived in Arkansas advertised a item on Craigslist and two people shot and killed him for less then 100 dollar's. They had killed other people as well.

So what. Not appropriate here. Take your politics elsewhere.

Too limited for my tastes. Prefer higher capacity heaters.

When I first heard of this on the news I listen to, I made bets of how long it would it would take for someone to start posting about it on here, and then how many posts it would take before someone said something like "that's why I carry a gun"

Won both bets.

Is this the only couple in the country that was murdered? The only vehicle stolen? But how many are national story? From what I see on this thread I'm the only one that is pointing out the story is being sensationalized for political purpose.

Yes, the story is out, everybody wants to spin it their way.
Any idea how many guns went with the RV?

I'll bet that both the husband and the wife wished they had availed themselves of their Second Amendment rights when they realized what was happening...

There, I just won both bets... ;-)
