    ... more fuel for the anti's.

    This is not what I want and wonder why folks that promote being pro 2nd Amendment would put the cause at risk for a few bucks. My dad always tells me, "People are no damn good !"

    ATF says most illegal guns in mexico (that we have any contact with or knowledge of) come from the USA (because all the other ways of getting illegal guns into criminal hands don't relate to us, so they don't bother talking to use about them)

    Latin America is crawling with full auto AKs, what do you think all those hundreds of different guerilla groups are using? Those don't come from the USA, they come from AK factories in china, africa, latin america, etc etc.

    Or, the military/police are issued guns, and they simply sell them to criminals, after all, corruption of the police and military is absolutely rampant...which might be why the cops never mention the boatloads of AKs that come floating in, but complain about straw-purchased firearms

    but seriously, I think the Mexican Police get some handguns, know which ones are the makarovs and tokerovs, or Astras or whatever, and instantly know where they all came from, and then they phone the ATF with the serial number.

    Sure, most glocks, sigs, pythons, kimbers, model 29s, springfield XDs, Rugers, etc encountered probably did come from a straw purchase in the USA, or just stolen from legal owners here.

    But that doesn't account for the vast majority of guns in mexico, or even the majority of handguns in mexico
