    I saw that story too. Anybody who seriously thought that the mom and pop gun stores were arming the cartels needs to have their heads examined. I mean, it's not like your average thug goes in and says "I'd like a M249, a grenade launcher, and 4 pounds of C4." :banghead:

    Been saying it for awhile, good to finally see some truth out there.

    A lot of the cartels' weapons are from the US, but not civilian sources. Mexico obtains a lot of its firearms from the US, and a percentage of those firearms make their way to the cartels.
    Just as the US government trains anti-cartel forces like many of the initial members of the Los Zetas who were trained by American special forces, only to have them switch sides in Mexico, and then begin training new cartel recruits with the same training.

    Well we can't let facts get in the way of disarming the American people though so you guys need to just shut up and be quiet!

    I see there's no comment section open on that story. I wanted to praise foxnews.com for publishing the article.

    I just hope it wasn't one of those articles they had up for an hour and then you never see it again. I check foxnews.com several times almost everyday and don't remember seeing it.

    Fox will likely be the only place you ever see it outside of the Gun Rights Media!
