    Finnally! Someone who knows actually spoke some truth!

    Mexico trying harder to catch smuggled US guns


    "You're seeing truly military-type guns, like grenade launchers," Mangan said. "They're not coming from the U.S. The hand grenades that are being used, you're looking at that stuff migrating up from Central America." .....


    ....Many of the cartels' grenades and other heavy weapons could be leftovers from Central America's civil wars, Mangan said.
    I wonder if anyone else in the BATFE will have the courage to stand up and come out with all of the truth.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I wondering why Mexico is focusing on the US with this 'cartel' issue?

    I'm thinking it keeps the focus off where the firepower is really coming from.

    Here is what i Don't get why was border security such a non-issue for the liberals when it was people weapons and drugs coming in to the US but is now suddenly a big issue when guns are supposedly going the other way
    PS I do get it I am being sarcastic.

    To clarify

    "The ATF says it has traced up to 95 percent of guns seized at scenes of drug violence in Mexico to U.S. commercial sources."

    This should be required reading for all. We should all make sure that we have the facts. The gun-ban folks have been repeating this "U.S. Guns in Mexico" lie, apparently, to drum-up support for a new round of attacks on the second ammendment.

    Yea I just saw the thread running on that over in the 2nd amendment situation.

    I guess I got my wish and some people are starting to stand up and say the truth.


    This is good. And like Firken said, this needs to be required reading. We have to squash this myth, and that can only be done with by educating people.
