Skip to comments.Obama Blames U.S. For Gun Violence In Mexico, Pushes For Gun Control
Posted on 05/03/2013 10:30:23 AM PDT by Hoodat
"Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States," President Obama said during a speech at Mexico's Anthropology Museum. "I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will."
"But at the same time, as Ive said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. Its the right thing to do," Obama added.

I agree. It's of a piece with his ever so adolescent finger aside the head. He thinks he's sly and clever.
Three words: Fast and Furious.
Will the state controlled media report that hypocrisy? No.
Journalists will be first on the "List."
Oh, yeah, the grabbers are back. The top story at google news right now is how the tide is turning against the NRA, yada, yada. CNN, MSNBC, WaPo have spoken. (remember those stories don’t stay static - it depends on traffic to the sites etc.)
The hypocrisy and ironies are everywhere.
Fast and Furious
Americans buying drugs from Mexico.
Refusal to close the boarder
Drug users in the US, are by and large, 0bama supporters.
I’d be curious how many legally purchased (with hard earned money, not drug money) guns in the US are later sold and shipped to Mexico ?
Thanks for the chuckle..... lol I looked at it and thought.. Yup...that’s how I feel when I read this stuff.
The simple solution is close the border, period! When there can be no unauthorized travel or trade in either direction then both countries will be safe. It’s a win win solution, so I wonder why the administrations of both countries are against it (sarc)
I thought the Mexican drug lords liked the Russian AK 47 the best?
I’ve met the greasy Mexicans that take the jobs from our workers. They not only can’t speak English, they can’t speak Spanish. They can’t even count to ten! They are animals.
I’ve only recently met a “middle class Mexican”. She is an idiot, but she believes she is a genius. She has a Mexican college degree, but she is really dumb — maybe IQ 85? Anyway, the thing that scares me is how “official” the invasion of the US is. It really is part of the Mexican culture to go to the US and take it over. It is talked about, and planned for, it is executed, and proudly boasted of. They are winning a deliberate war of invasion.
If you like America, do not do anything that benefits a Mexican, they are manipulating you, and are laughing at you behind your back.
How about the dumbass-in-chief suggest that Mexico get its’ shiP together? He should say that mass illegal immigration to the USA will not be tolderated, and that if their Gov’t can get a grip on crime, corruption, drugs, etc. that it wouldn’t be necessary to ILLEGALLY enter the US of A.
Barry should then suggest that maybe they could take advantage of their cheap labor, drive business growth, and as a result - bring prosperity to the people!
Oh yeah, he should tell them not a single penny more is coming to Mexico from US Taxpayers.
He might be right, but they arrive in Mexico via a Central or South American nations’ armouries, from which they are sold to the narcotrafficantes by corrupt governments.
Its not like you can get automatic weapons easily here in the US.
The easy common sense solutions to America's problems have voiced, written, typed, screamed, demanded and pleaded 50 million times.
It should be clear to all, government has no interest in solutions or what might benefit the American people.
Violence in Mexico is because:
1. Guns in USA are legal
2. Drugs in USA are illegal
The U.S. should be blaming oboma for gun violence in Mexico!
He's the one who shipped them their guns! Thousands of high powered weapons designed to kill, so he could use the dead bodies as props for his gun confiscation campaign.
If Mexico has a problem with guns - talk to oboma. That problem is his, and only his. The people of the U.S. had no part in it.
Maybe it's those Fast and Furious guns you and Holder sent down there Hussein!
I think he should take a bow for that one.
