CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — President Felipe Calderon on Thursday unveiled a “No More Weapons!” billboard made with crushed firearms and placed near the U.S. border. He urged the United States to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico.

The billboard, which is in English and weighs 3 tons, was placed near an international bridge in Ciudad Juarez and can be seen from the United States.

Kayyyyyyyy?

how buot you stop exporting your vile drugs and violence.

Your problem is homegrown.

Oh, that’s right you can’t stop it. It is actually in the top 5 of industries in Mexico and many people rely on it for their living as there are not really many other opportunities for work.

You guys aren’t really moralists so much as opportunistic bastards who look for any means of quelling the proletariats who are seething to rid their country of you.

STFU and clean up your house before you start throwing crap at ours.

I’m astounded (and probably shouldn’t be) at the gall of Calderon.

Does he have any clue of the havoc drugs and illegal immigrants have caused our nation?

Pendejo Grande!

More BS from the people who would have the American public at large believe they can walk into Walmart and walk again with a fully automatic AK-47.

The majority of Mexican criminals' and drug lords' arms are stolen (or freely given) Mexican army equipment.

President Felipe Calderon on Thursday unveiled a “No More Weapons!” billboard made of churshed weapons.

“Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering....The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico,” he added.

It’s on the wrong Mexican border.

Although I keep reading about them, I haven’t been able to lay hands on a real AK-47 (selective fire, of course), and so have to make do with a semi auto Chinese copy.

That and a stern letter will straighten things out. You betcha.

Only if the sign falls on Calderon, Napolitano, Holder and Hussein's heads and crushes them will it make any difference.

It would be hard to make sign out of illegal aliens, but we CAN make it from marijuana, cocaine, etc. - in Spanish, or course.

Soon there won’t be anyone seeing this sign that speaks English, anyway.

Bales of drugs would be picked clean the first night.
I'd suggest building it from a few tons of the crap left littering our desert as they pass through.

And putting a huge, south facing, fan behind it.

“Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering....The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico,” he added.

Calderon knows damned well that the bulk of the weapons in Mexico come from South America. He was put clearly up to this in support of the UN Small Arms Treaty. My guess is that his hope is that Americans will be disarmed so that his "countrymen" in the US will be free to effect their reconquista, whether demographically or by violence.

In short, the US ratifying the Small Arms Treaty would be good for Mexico because they would disregard it while Americans would be disarmed.

I was having a conversation with my Dad about the hypocrisy of the left believing that if Americans sell guns and Mexicans buy, it's Americans' fault, but if Mexicans sell drugs and Americans buy, that's ALSO American's fault. He didn't see any inherent contradiction and all I could come up with was a lame "But they can't BOTH be true at the same time!".

A much better way to put it so he could grasp the contradiction would be to say "If I tell you that people in country A are selling people in country B something that's contraband in B and ask you who's at fault, are you telling me your answer will be 'Which ones are American?'"

That would work; if we used drugs The Sultan might have an “Operation Drugrunner” and send it back to them.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the US State Department paid for the Sign with guns destroyed from the Gunwalker case so they would not be found at a crime scene.

The problem is, this entire country is a crime scene. There should be yellow tape around the border, and at least it would be a start of a fence.

But then what would the DC inhabitants do for recreation.

Don’t know what the figure is now but at one time DC had the highest (NPI) number of drug users in the country. They don’t want the flow to stop.

Because it is never racist to blame rich white people for all the problems in the world. Every child that is educated beyond high school knows that! It is taught at nearly every university! /S

Hey I know who they CAN blame...

AG Eric Holder, Barrack Hussein Obumer, DEA, Customs, etc etc etc, (i.e.: US government)

Not the people of this country...

Of course they tried recently to get all those women here illegally to straw purchase a bunch of guns and try to smuggle them across the border to the south to try to deflect the atention of the failed Fast and Furious bullsh!t...

Nope, not going to fall for this BS...

I honestly believe we will face a direct challenge in a second term of office for Obama, an assult on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms...

Start watching for the runs on ammo and other acoupraments leading up to the election this November...

Prices will probably start going up this summer...Just watch...

Rather than play silly games with a sign, it would make more sense to file an extradition request for Eric Holder to stand trial in Mexico on several hundred counts of manslaughter.

That's not lame. Either the personal responsibility that follows along with an individual's actions are consistent for all people or there is no such thing. If no one is responsible for their actions then blame is an absurd concept that applies to no one.

Hm, if they're automatic weapons then likely they came from intergovernmental transfer.
But, as long as they're a problem in Mexico, maybe Mexico should offer them for sale to US Citizens...

If only we could convince him the best way to 'get even' with the US was to arm the "bitter clingers"...

I didn't feel that it was lame from a logical point of view but from a debating/persuasion point of view. The other approach would have done a much better job of illustrating the contradiction and made it almost impossible for him not to face the conflict inherent in his own beliefs unless he simply wanted to believe it and that was that.

Mexico Unveils ‘No More Weapons!’ Sign Made Of Firearms Along US Border
And we should put up a sign in Spanish on our side of the Border made from Pictures of All The Dead Americans killed by ILLEGAL Mexican DUI drivers. It would say:
¡No Más Asesinos!
(No More Murderers!)
Before we bomb Iran I say we do a test run over Mexico. From the Border down to Mexico city. Turn it all into friggen glass.

I'm sick and tired of those hypocritical, criminal, leeches.

Maybe he can get on the horn to the pimp in the White House, the biggest arms smuggler of them all.

Perhaps we could erect a billboard of our own. “No More Illegals, Deal With Your Own Poverty”
