Mexico Urges U.S. to Review Gun Laws After Colorado Shooting (GRRR!)
Reuters ^ | 07-21-2012 | John Hill

Oh no they didn't---MEXICO is trying to lecture US about VIOLENCE? Seriously? Calif. Assemblyman Tim Donnelly summed it up well: "Nothing ceases to amaze me. This is outrageous that the failed nation of Mexico would dare lecture the United States -- Mexico, where gun ownership by citizens is illegal, but gun violence is at epidemic proportions with the Drug Cartels slaugthering 60K people in the past 4 years. For the number of guns in this country, we are a remarkably peaceful people...." Yet more hypocrisy from Calderon - who also called our border fence racist, and then built one of his own to keep Guatemalan illegals out of Mexico. (LINK)

--

(Reuters) - Mexican President Felipe Calderon condemned U.S. gun laws as "mistaken" and urged Washington to review them after a shooter killed 12 people and injured more than 50 others at a U.S. movie theater on Friday.

In comments posted on his Twitter account on Saturday, Calderon offered his condolences to the United States after a gunman went on the rampage with an assault rifle at a midnight premier of the new Batman film in Aurora, Colorado.

But Mexico's president, who has repeatedly called on Washington to tighten gun controls to stop weapons flowing from the United States into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, said U.S. weapons policy needed a rethink after the killings.

"Because of the Aurora, Colorado tragedy, the American Congress must review its mistaken legislation on guns. It's doing damage to us all," Calderon said.

EXCERPT...Continued...

Mexico has strict gun laws and great lot of good it does her. Their murder rate is higher than Iraq’s.

As far as I know, its illegal to wire your apartment for explosives. A guy who is prepared to kill large numbers of people doesn’t care that its illegal to do so.

A sewer like Mexico telling US how our immigration and gun laws need to be. When are we finally going to go to war with these ***holes? I’ve had about all of Mexico I can stand.

Mexico is one of the most corrupt countries on the planet.

And the Mexican people are some of the most disrespectful people on the planet, as millions of them routinely disrespect and violate our rules, laws and borders.

And then their cheap two bit corrupt politicians tell the U.S. how to operate?

Ya can’t make this chet up.

Seems to me that Mexico might want to review their gun laws. Consider:

Juarez: 1,321,004 people, ~1700 murders (2008)
El Paso: 800,647 people, 17 murders (2008)

It’s worth noting that these cities are right next to each other, with only a (partial) fence separating them. It’s also worth noting that even the 17 murders was a relatively high number for El Paso - in 2010, they had 5 murders.

Dear President Calderon,

We’re quite happy with our current laws, as it allows legal American Citizens an opportunity to quickly stop violent acts committed by your Illegals. The next time we need the opinion of a third world cesspool, we’ll ask you.

It’s easy to see why. The officials in Mexico know that Mexican gangs would rather be closer to their customers in America (and away from Mexico causing trouble) but would have to not feel threatened by armed natives (us).

12 people died in Aurora, CO. That is unfortunate.

The UK has some of the most incredibly strict gun laws on the planet.

Yet that didn't stop Derrick Bird, a British cab driver from killing 12 people there.

Someone needs to remind the Mexicans their territory doesn`t yet extend into Colorado. Yes, we realize the Southwest is heavily populated with illegal Mexican nationals, but they don`t yet own it, so they need to STFU.

Yeah, like they’ve done so very well with their gun laws, drug laws and the cartels. Just ask the thousands murdered!

When will everyone understand that laws only disarm the lawful?

New photo of Brian Ross, the convicted child molester.

ABC News was just so DAMNED eager to tie the patriots of the "Tea Party" to an insane act of mass-murder, that Ross and Stephanopolous just couldn't stop themselves when they did a Google search and found a Jim Holmes on a Tea Party list.

Their wet dream is to connect "Tea Party" and "terrorist" as a permanent meme in the MSM.

Turnabout is fair play. Please share this photo on FR, FB and Twitter, and include "Brian Ross, the convicted child molester" in the accompanying text, so that the picture will be linked on Google to Brian Ross forever. This smarmy prick and ABC "news" deserve it, in spades.

Obama probably put him up to it.

Come to think of it, Obama has been successful in bringing the U.S. down to the level of a third world country in the world's eyes. Can you imagine Mexico saying this to Reagan?

Please stop selling weapons to the drug cartels.

weve entered the next dimension of political satire/irony...

one nutjob is capable of paralysing an entire region/state/nation here, while an ongoing, full scale war [with real military grade weapons] in mejico is just the daily scene...

and again, in iraq, every household is allowed to keep a full-auto AK, by the blood & Blessings of the US rule of law...

tell me again how much FReedom weve lost ???

Felipe Calderon is sticking to the propaganda mantra—”Drugs going north, guns going south”—that Obama and Hillary drilled him on in 2009.

U.S. weapons smuggled into Mexico go to meet the demand of Mexican citizens who have been terrified by criminal gangs and corrupt officials. Though firearms are legal they are difficult to obtain because the few “legal” Mexican gun stores are controlled by the notoriously crooked National Police.

Criminals have military grade weapons—including fully automatic rifles, shoulder-fired rocket launchers and grenades—easily obtained on a black market fed by China, former East Bloc countries, and rouge military groups throughout Central America.

If all weapons were banned in the U.S. tomorrow, Mexico would overnight launch the biggest gun running operation in history to supply American demand.
