This is the next shoe to drop from the Obama gun-control centipede. F&F was the pretext for this agitprop. Watch next for some diplomatic theater between Ciudad de México and DC.

Well, I’d certainly sign a petition to stop the ATF from knowingly selling guns to Mexican drug criminals - and even hanging those convicted of doing so.

How about a petition to ask Mexico to ban violent drug cartels? I’m sure that as soon as they pass such a law, that drugs, violence and cartels will all magically disappear overnight.

Yep, here in Mexico, we have STRICT gun laws. We put U.S. Marines into prison for carrying antique shot guns they tried to register. He should have got 10 years. And for us? We in 6 years of Calderon only had 10,000 deaths. The idea is to get the guns into the hands of the bad guys. It’s just the way it works for us in Mexico.

54,000 out of a population of about 115,296,767? I would not worry. In Mexico ,just like in this country, the elites control the media. Poll after poll show that the majority of the population of Mexico are in favor of the death penalty but Mexico is adamantly against it. I’ve not seen any polls in regard to the populations opinion of gun control but I would bet that a large number of Mexicans would like looser gun control laws.

So why doesn’t Mexico control their own borders? That would stop the guns from going into their country.

Yeah. We know. Fast and Furious.
The good guys tried to do something about it, but the bad guys have the U.S. immigrant vote locked up.

So, Mexico, talk to your people. They've been supporting the gun trafficking through their votes. The left needs a certain amount of deaths to push their communist agenda, and people who are as appalled by this as we are should help us try to stop it.

The insanity index is now off the chart. We’re now getting legal advice from a massively failed state that is unable to control crime among it’s police let alone it’s citizenry. The world is mad and there is no way I will face such a world unarmed.

instead of trying to tread on American sovereignty where’s the Mexican’s petition to close the border in order to stop gun smuggling into Mexico? Oh yeah, get the US government, the Chicago mafia and the Wall Street banksters out of the illicit drug business and that would help curb Mexico’s murder rate immensely.

Every Mexican who sneaks across our border is one less Mexico has to feed, and if they do get a job they send money back to Mexico.

Many guns in Mexico do come from the United States, they can thank Obama for that, he is the one who had them shipped across.

I will make a stateent here , see if anyone thinks it is true.
If the sale of guns and ammunition are banned here in America, most of our new guns and ammunition will be smuggled in from Mexico.

Maybe if we sent a petiton to Mexico to stop their drugs from coming here they would pay as much attention to that petition as we should pay to theirs.

Anyone have any ideas on what they will call the new country?

If Mexico worried about Mexico like how they worry about America, they could actually start improving their own country.They spend so much time and money telling Americans about how they think this country should be ran and yet they live in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Decade after decade things in Mexico continue to deteriorate.Does Mexico really think they are in any kind of position to lecture this country on how to improve this country and here’s is their plan ? All Mexico has is information nobody wants or needs.

Federal authorities contend two men worked together to illegally purchase 21 military style guns in the Houston area as part of a ring that smuggled the weapons, which are especially prized in drug-cartel ravaged Mexico.

Arturo Fernando Astorquiza, an undocumented immigrant and Terrel Leon Bates, an American citizen, are accused of their roles to lie and buy the weapons from multiple local gun dealers, according to a federal indictment based on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigation..

Bates acted as a what is known as “straw purchasers,” allegedly said the guns were for their own use, when the truth is they were to be passed on to others who either could not legally purchase the guns or didn’t want any paperwork linking them to the purchases.

He was allegedly recruited by Astorquiza.

Authorities have not said how they got on to the pair or where the guns were specifically headed. In September. They apparently triggered the interest of authorities by making multiple gun purchases close together.

Shall we start a petition of our own calling on Mexico to take further steps to combat weapons trafficking for starters, demand Mexico make border security a top priority on Mexico’s side of the border. Then Mexico want have to worry about our side of the border.They can keep their criminals on their side of the border = no guns coming or going..

Hmm....let me guess. First....King Barry confiscates Americans’ guns, then sells them to Mexico, and then the Mexican smugglers sell them back to us.

Yep. Sounds like a deal Barry would make.

I have no sympathy for the people of Mexico. They tolerate the corruption in their government. They get the government they deserve. When they rise up and throw the bums out, then I will be willing to help them.

They may have to treat a bunch of politicians to the Mussolini cure, from the local bosses to calderone, but until they do, they deserve whatever they get.

NOTICE TO ALL ILLEGALS, GO HOME AND FIX YOUR OWN DA%M COUNTRY. FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!!!
