    ABC News: U.S. Guns Arming Mexican Drug Gangs; Second Amendment to Blame?

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I Tivoed it earlier and watched it. I hate the media, I just hope there is enough sane people in this country to see past the 1 sided stories.

    I cant see the video (still tied to a phone line.) but you can bet the mexican drug gangs get most of their weapons from mexico. their own police force.

    I think the media should be sued class action style for premeditated propaganda, and intentionally deceiving the American public. How else can we end the lies and nonsense? I've got your freedom of speech right here. Facts or fiction. There needs to be a new documentary television reality series where some group puts stories like these to the test and actually unearths the facts and questions the integrity and credibility of these news media.

    If you think it was hard to get a conviction for O.J., look at the money any media company has to throw into the fray...

    That being said, after finals I'll talk to the lawyers I know and see if it's possible.

    Criminals are committing robberies, "straw" purchases and undocumented border crossings, prompting gullible U.S. media organizations to howl "foul" and dishonorably attempt to lay the blame at the feet of upstanding citizens seeking to protect their families from such criminals and crimes. It's the "loose" 2A of the U.S. Constitution that's to blame? Uh, I don't think so. The non-policy of the U.S. government and the non-control of the Mexican government is, IMO, what allows this problem to run unfettered.

    This report was aired on the ABC Evening News, not CNN.

    If Mexico doesn't like 'illegal firearms' coming across the border they need to BUILD A WALL!

    I find 90% pretty high but i live by the border and they have raided drug houses here where they bust 2-300 pounds of pot or get several hundred kilos of cocaine and usually find a large arsenal of AR15's and other weapons waiting to go across the border,but most were purchased by people looking to trade them for money or drugs,or stolen from houses,but as far as some of the full autos i'm sure those are coming up from Colombia and Argentina and other S. American countries that have large guerilla groups that guard and traffic in drugs

    I guess in retrospect, the Mexican government wasn't doing a very smart thing by publishing literature telling their citizens how to sneak across the US border.....

    I watched the story on ABC New last night, and my reaction is: if it is illegtal to own guns in Mexico, and guns are being smuggled across the border, how does it now bcome the responsibility of the US to police the border, given that ownership of guns in the US by law abiiding citizens is legal. Ir is cleaely the responsibiliry of the Mexican government to police their borders to prevent illegal items from entering their country, including guns.

    But, that was not the thrust of the news report. Infuriating.

    Mexico wants the US to police the border to stop smuggling into Mexico, while simultaneously ignoring the outflow of illegals entering the US.

    Makes perfect sense.

    I read as far as "high powered assault weapons" and quit. The media is so full of its own B.S. I don't watch the news anymore.
