From comments at Instapundit:
linked essay are now
different to the ones I remember from the first time I looked at it.
Is it my imagination, or were there originally photos of vigilantes grouping up and loading into trucks en masse
before the trip to the other town, and that it was largely composed of
mobs of guys in white t-shirts with .22 squirrel guns and single-shot hardware store shotguns? I guess that's not very narrative-y.
Also interesting: Unlike photos from Chihuahua and Sonora, the armament down there farther south seems notably devoid of the thumbhole-stocked
semiauto AKs and obviously commercial ban-era ARs that the administration assures us are the cause of All Bad Things south of the border. Every AK in those
pictures looked to be the real deal and all the M1 carbines and M4s most
likely arrived in cartel or vigilante hands via Mexican .mil or LE armories. Looks
like the Templars are not on the BATFE's list of Our Favorite Cartels.
