As an ex-Puertorican, i am proud of my heritage and the great contributions other Puertorican people have done, like Roberto Clemente in baseball, Raul Julia in film and Jennifer Lopez in Music...

But then there's this...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntiz3tEnzsE&feature=colike

Is in Spanish, but i think the video speaks volumes...

You'd swear you are in either Baghdad or in the streets of Juarez, Mexico, but no; that's in the San Juan metro area - mainly near public housing complexes, like Covadonga. Hell, i tell my mother that I am never returning to Puerto Rico, mainly because drug-related crime is so rampant; and as you may hear in the video; you got gangbangers with FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, like M16s and AK47s, shooting up in the air in celebration of the New Year. THE FUCK!!!

And gun laws in Puerto Rico are very restrictive, probalby similar to those in California or NY, I dunno the specifics, but i don't care. Hell, I am even considering moving to Arizona this year, so I can get away from Florida and go to an even more gun-friendly state (felt good to walk around Phoenix with my P2000 out in the open).

ETA - Edited to clear things up.

I've been several times... Get the heck out of SanJuan and it is a beautiful place. I would seriously consider living near Ponce or Rincon.
SanJuan did make me feel very uncomfortable to be unarmed. Seeing syringes laying in the gutter in the Old Town area was not enjoyable.. Luckily, the misses missed the ugly stuff.

I am curious... What, if any, traffic laws are enforced there? Driving on that island is fun to say the least.

Damn, was just there last week. Some areas in san juan felt a little unsafe but the outside areas were beautiful and safe. Had alot of fun.

My understanding is that with the drug trade being cracked down on the US border, they are now going though PR. There is no customs or immigration. No high securtiy like an international airport or port. Its just like going to another state. So once they get the drugs to PR they are home free to get into the US.

Dude, you are lucky.

Puerto Ricans > Mexicans, Dominicans, Salvadorians, etc, etc....

Big PR population in my area. Family comes first, respect is second ( to a fault). Can do amazing things with pork. Have met some real "winners" and some really amazing people too. They are essentially where the Irish were 120 years ago in the assimilation game. There is nothing wrong with pride in their heritage. Look around St Patrick's day. What flag do you see then?

PR spanish is a dialect of it's own. A few words get you a long way though.

True. Haitians try to sneak into DOMREP, and Dominicans try to sneak into PR so they can buy a plane ticket to the US. A lot of times they will have a bag of anything that might be deemed valuable like cell phones or random electronics.

You have obviously never been in a small village in Mexico during September 16th. ¡AY CARAJO!

They literally dressed up as cowboys, got on horses and started shooting Glocks and .44 Magnums into the air.
I swear I thought the horses were going to throw the riders. Meanwhile, in Mexico the gun laws are stricter than in N.Y.C.

Ah, that's nothing. I lived >just< outside of Detroit for 16 years.

You'd swear you are in either Baghdad or in the streets of Juarez, Mexico, but no; that's in the San Juan metro area - mainly near public housing complexes, like Covadonga. Hell, i tell my mother that I am never returning to Puerto Rico, mainly because drug-related crime is so rampant; and as you may hear in the video; you got gangbangers with FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, like M16s and AK47s, shooting up in the air in celebration of the New Year. THE FUCK!!!

And gun laws in Puerto Rico are very restrictive, probalby similar to those in California or NY, I dunno the specifics, but i don't care. Hell, I am even considering moving to Arizona this year, so I can get away from Florida and go to an even more gun-friendly state (felt good to walk around Phoenix with my P2000 out in the open).

I am a Michiganian/Michigander (you get the idea), we have these places here called Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, Benton Harbor and a couple more I am sure. If the gun laws in Michigan were like they are in New York State, Illinois or California. I would be looking to leave as well.

THE FUCK!!!

And gun laws in Puerto Rico are very restrictive, probalby similar to those in California or NY, I dunno the specifics, but i don't care. Hell, I am even considering moving to Arizona this year, so I can get away from Florida and go to an even more gun-friendly state (felt good to walk around Phoenix with my P2000 out in the open).

ETA - Edited to clear things up.


i'd swear I met you several years ago at the range in ocala and I'd swear you were a white dude.


Do you live under a rock? No offense, but I find it surprising that you would think all the people from a specific island nation were all non-whites. Have you never met any Cubans in Florida?
