I thought this had been debunked a year or more ago but it's back. The Mexican Cartels are using American bought weapons. So Amerioca should ignore her own Constitution ban guns and cave to a country who can't get it's own house in order.
Without anything to back it up, I would doubt the Americans buying these guns are doing so legally. To legally buy a full auto weapon in the U.S. reguires many hoops and quite a bit of cash per weapon. It is more likely they are buying them illegally and then transporting them illegally.
Hmm. LEGAL guns ILLEGALLY bought and ILLEGALLY transported.
Why not target the illegal part instead of the legal?
And if the Mexicans catch them instead well, don't do the crime if you can't do the time comes to mind.
Why not arm legal Americans in the border states so they can defend their homes and lives. Got a drug runner crossing your ranch? Don't do the crime if. . .
Hey, Calderon, I use my guns to DEFEND myself and my house. Why don't you do the same instead of telling me I can't because YOUR citizens can't behave themselves?
Firearms from U.S. being used in Mexico drug violence Cartel leaders are hiring Americans to make the purchases for them
Mexican cartels are taking advantage of U.S. gun laws to buy thousands of weapons that are being used in an escalating drug war that has claimed more than 31,000 lives since late 2006, experts and law enforcement officials tell NBC News.
U.S. firearms agents estimate that around 80 percent of the weapons used by Mexican drug traffickers come from the United States, where cartel leaders are hiring Americans with clean records to make the purchases for them. In the past four years, Mexican authorities say they have seized 90,000 weapons from their nation's drug war.
"The cartels need their tools of the trade, which are the weapons, and they are coming to the U.S. to get those weapons," William McMahon of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told NBC News.
Authorities say the straw buyers are paid up to $200 per weapon and cite a recent case in Oklahoma City, where a former state narcotics agent pleaded guilty in such a gunrunning scheme.
Francisco Reyes, 29, was accused of paying two friends to buy dozens of firearms destined for Mexico, according to court documents. One of those buyers, Jorge Alexis Blanco, bought at least 15 guns and attempted to buy three more, according to Michael Randall of the ATF in the criminal complaint.
"They are being taken advantage of by these cartels and really are providing something that's going be used to kill someone in Mexico," said McMahon, adding that the cartels are specifically looking for high-caliber weapons.
'Acapulco Police Massacre'
Authorities say they have no doubts that weapon purchases are being used to fuel the violence in Mexico, including a recent case known as the "Acapulco Police Massacre," in which four officers and three secretaries were murdered.
