    Keller. That is a bogus story. How would those guys know that? Supposition is all that is to be politically correct.

    This article, <I>...Guns Smuggled to Mexico...</I> and others like it make the points that not all illegal guns used by the cartels in Mexico come from the US, <center>
    [​IMG]
    </center>that most of the murders in Mexico are committed with hand guns, not powerful rifles, and that many of the illegal guns from the US end up in the hands of private citizens who feel the need for self-protection but who can't buy guns in Mexico due to the prohibitive gun laws and the high prices. Some of the guns are going to the good guys, but they're still illegal.

    The Mexican government has it all wrong.The Russians and Hugo Chavez in joint partnership have built a AK-47 plant in Venezuela ..and as everyone knows he hates this country and would ship these rifles to mexaco in a heartbeat..Maybe fast and furious was Eric way to get the Mexican drug cartels to buy American ..If there was any money to be made in arms to mexaco the US government would have found a way to ship them thru a different country..We have armed most of the people in the world..We are now arming the rebels ..Syria..Egypt..and a lot of third world country's..
    We even armed some south American country's..The only people that the government dosen't want armed are the American people..

    How many people does their main export effect??? Guns are used for many purposes. What good is Black Tar Heroin ? how about meth and cocaine??

    The corruption and drug money goes all the way to the top.

    It's asinine for them to even mention guns.

    Imagine that, Mexico bitching about our pourous border.

    They are lucky, Gringo guns don't require healthcare, housing, schools, don't vote in elections down there....................

    Maybe if Mexico would check for guns in the cars that enter their country, that might help. They might intercept a few...the Tijuana border is a joke when going into Mexico. All you do is slow down a bit when driving through the turnstiles. But instead of taking their people and putting them to work checking for illegal guns, they would rather make the news and ask congress to tighten our gun laws.

    Coming back from Mexico is NO joke. Takes hours and hours to get through the US border check points.

    REALLY? That many? How would they ever know? Hell, they miss 39% of the foot traffic that comes across and apparently 100% of everything else.


    URBAN MYTH.......or just plain ol' mexican lie.

    dad...this is how the people who did the study explained their statistics...

    Now seein' as how the Mexicans probably don't keep a count and the slime bag border gun dealers probably don't keep records, I give the guys that did the study top marks for trying to come up with an estimate that relies on something other than SWAGs and hearsay.

    Maybe the "Customs & Border Protection" and "Immigration & Customs Enforcement" agencies would appreciate you payin' them a visit and showin' them how to do things?

    And maybe if America would quit sucking up all those drugs the Mexicans would lose their best market?

    Decriminalize and legalize the sale of certain recreational drugs and tax the hell out of it... get the criminal element out of drugs, just like alcohol...

    That would kill the illicit marijuana industry... a fraction of tax money pays for education and while their might be an initial bump in usage, it would drop like cigarette and alcohol use...

    Prohitions don't work, look at the criminal access to firearms... money can get you anything...

    At Keller - ANY study that does not locate, and trace back a significant population firearms in Mexico to a.) US and b.) Non-US sources - is BUL%S--t. A 'statistical study' would have sound data - not just using 'US Dealers' along the borders.

    Are you getting cranky because you don't want to believe the report or because you don't want to believe that the US is a bigger contributor to this whole problem than most people want to imagine? Are you embarrassed to live in a country that has a drug habit so bad that it is screwing up societies all over the world that are trying to to keep us fed?
