In the wake of a tense national clash over the issue of gun control, Mexico has taken an action sure to fan the flames of controversy. In January, the Mexico Permanent Commission reportedly voted to formally ask the United States Senate for a registry of all commercialized firearms in the border states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
According to Informador, the proposition was introduced by Senator Marcela Guerra, who stated he introduced the resolution in hopes that it would make it easier to trace guns used in violent crimes. InsightCrime explains,
Close to 60,000 people were killed during the six-year presidency of Felipe Calderon, who left office in December. The US Southwest is a significant source of weaponry for Mexicos criminal organizations, who typically purchase firearms from US gun stores via a middleman or straw buyer.
Given these facts, it might not seem surprising that the Mexican government is interested in taking action to curb the acquisition of weapons by violent criminals on their side of the border. However, given the recent history of government-initiated gun trafficking on our side, neither is it surprising to hear the comments of enraged gun-owners who feel that the Mexican request is absurd.
Its an infringement, on its highest level, said one Arizona gun-owner interviewed by KPHO TV.
My first reaction is, I dont like it, said another. In light of what happened, with, you know, all the weapons, the assault weapons, that went over there.
He was referring to the federal ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms) gun-walking scandal, Fast And Furious, in which US government agents allowed guns to pass into the possession of suspected gun smugglers in order to track them up to high-level Mexican crime rings.

FK that. You are a different country and are not entitled to know Jack Shiite about our citizens.
They should build a wall to keep the guns out.
Well, maybe they should give us a list of all the trespassers that now live here. Oh, and their addresses too since their relatives get money from them practically every month. What a load of crap. NO f’n way. Comprende?
keep your damn citizens in your own lawless hellhole of a country.
‘No.’ It’s the same in Spanish isn’t it?
I guess having a peace treaty dictated to you in your own
capitol does not supply enough humility. We might have to
visit them there again.
The Mexicans need to re-read the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
and then read it again.
It would also be useful to give them a demonstration of what
a few A-10s can do to a column of Taco Tanks and old
Chevy pickups painted in camo.
Wardaddy sez Mexico big cheese need to:
Chupa me la monda
You first, Mexico. Let’s see you get a registry of guns from your drug dealers and we’ll see how that goes.
The time I seriously give a sh*t what the mexiclowns ask of us is the time I stop pressing 1 for English.
Greg Gutfeld had a great response to this. Send them the phone books of Dallas/Ft. Worth and Houston.
I sure wouldn't hold my breath.
More North American Union bulls#*t!!
Si a ellos no les gusta, que se mantengan por alla en su pais. Verdad, no?
So, “Fast and Furious”, was found out. Now, the complicit meican gov’t, needs to know all the legal gun owners in the US, just like our own Federals. What a congruency, Mr Holder.
Our God is a Mighty God, He Lives in Heaven and Earth. Our God is a Mighty God. Our God is a Mighty God.
They will go to the UN with support from the regime to start a fire storm with all the criminal nations forcing zero, “yeah right”! to sign us on to the international gun ban treaty. Rust never sleeps and niether does cancer, be strong my friends
