    Federal gun raid leaves border town without mayor, police chief

    "Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008

    The ring bought guns "favored by the Mexican cartels," such as American tactical 9 mm pistols and the so-called "AK-47 pistols," which are weapons resembling AK-47 rifles but with shorter barrels and without rear stocks, U.S. Attorney Kenneth J. Gonzales of New Mexico told CNN.

    No matter what the news is, if it has the word gun it must be TACTICAL

    The max for smuggling a gun is 5 years? They caught a guy down here with 16 in his auxiliary gas tank,he was getting paid $200.00 to smuggle them into Mexico.
    The American Tactical 9mm pistols could be from the Importers (American Tactical Imports)
    "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
    --Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .

    The mayor got tired of selling chicklets to tourists and needed some quick cash.

    It's bad enough that we have to deal with criminals that are making it more difficult for law abiding citizens to exercise their SA, but now we have to deal with Chiefs and mayors as well... I hope he was a member of Bloomberg's Mayors against illegal guns to give them a little bit of bad reputation as well.
    I hope they get max punishment!

    I see the KoolAid is flowing freely.

    Now I don't know this as fact, but I highly doubt that the "Cartels" are using semi auto weapons as their primary weapon, or even secondary. Multi-billion dollar enterprise, they can afford better than US legal, hard to convert semi auto weapons.

    The disposable drug couriers however...probably on contract labor and obliged to source their own.

    I've no doubt that there are guns from the US getting smuggled across the border, and are most likely ending up in the hands of the private citizens and bottom feeder gangs.

    I was starting to wonder if these were going to be the designated fall guys for the ATF boondoggle, but no mention of the ATF at all.

    New Mexico politicians are as corrupt as Chicago's and make West Virginia look tame. There is no surprise here. I too doubt semi-autos are the weapon of choice of the cartels, but it's happening with ATF's blessings.

    It was stated last year on the news down here that Columbus NM was one of the fastest growing towns in the southwest, due to a large influx of money...... Gee, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on. It should have been stopped long before now.
