    Did anyone else see this sewage being spewed on the Greta Van Putztren show last night. Sad thing is these people actually believe in their hearts the sh*t coming out of their mouths. Link http://www.foxnews.com/ontherecord/# . Can someone actually post a link to the video I can only seem to get the main page, thanks.

    Well, most of those cartel guns are probably the one's the government sold Mexico for their military.
    Hilary Clinton is an idiot, and the whole country knows it.

    If the guns in Mexico came from the U.S., they came from the military sales our govt. made to them. I hope ******* took little billy with her to Mexico. There are certain "areas" of Nuevo Laredo he would really enjoy visiting. I'm sure the girls would treat him right.

    Her argument is correct that we share a responsibility. We need to seal the border. Her position is errant (it seems) that the firearms came from the USA (according to border agents). I want to see the serial number from each and every firerarm to be tracked to the owner. Otherwise, I call BS. To date, Mexico refuses to give serial numbers.

    NO ONE has shown proof that any firearms have made their way into that Godless cesspool. I also think the poor schmuck in Brownsville might have gotten railroaded. Remember the two border patrol officers? Without serial numbers, which the Mex government will not release, how could they convict?

    But I'd be willing to send some 7.62x54 their way free of charge. Preferably from 500 plus yards. X

    Saw it - another show I won't watch. There's no excuse for sloppy reporting. Machine guns from the US - what nonsense.

    How about we worry about holding murderers responsible for murdering people instead?

    For some reason the current view is that we are sending guns and money South out of the goodness of our hearts. Seems to me that there might be another cause.

    She's right, a lot of the guns do come from the US. Of course, they're guns that the Mexican military and police bought from the US. When you have lots of corrupt military and police it's no surprise that they don't come unarmed.

    We all know that they are walking into the gun shops along the border and picking up all the machine guns / assault rifles. We need to stop the sales here in the US of unregulated full autos over the counter. We are after all causing all of Mexico's problems.

    Now as to reality, I highly doubt that gun sales here in the US have any impact on the crime happening in Mexico. The problem with that country is their totally corrupt government. The people of Mexico need more guns, they then need to overthrow their corrupt leaders and put into place someone like Washington, Jefferson, or even Franklin. Until that happens, Mexico will remain a quagmire.

    As a small though, we really should have just taken over the country. We captured Mexico City, and they though that we were going to stay. It would have been much better for them had we done so.

    I "found" a rap on-line about Hillary and the assault weapons in Mexico. You'd enjoy reading about. It is rather "direct", so I can't post it here. :) PM me if you want a copy. It's rated PG-113 years.

    And if Mexicans use American cars for hit and run in Mexico it's our fault too? Only a Democrat can see the logic in that...

    this whole blame USA for mexican guns is absolutely illogical.

    These cartels are going to act like any rebel political group in Latin America. They are simply going to buy bulk new or used AKs on the world firarms market.

    They are NOT going to pay for the firearms to be disassembled, have their receivers removed, shipped to the USA, reassembled, sold to the distributor, sold to the gunshops and then finally sold to straw purchasers to run them across the border.

    They are simply going to buy a crates of AKs that never set foot in the USA.

    Now, handguns are a bit of a different matter. There are a ton of surplus makarovs and PPK knockoffs and taurus/rossi guns in Mexico. Yes, some of the handguns come from the USA. These are of course, by our law, clearly marked as manufactured or imported to City, State, USA.

    Hence you take that 1 to 5% of handguns marked USA and ask the BATF or FBI to run a check on them. Then you can claim the majority of guns traced by the FBI come from the USA.

    People who are ignorant think that ALL guns are traced and hence MOST guns are coming from the USA

    I don't know where the mexican guns are coming from, but i do know that if the supply dries up, they'll find a new avenue elsewhere. Just ask Viktor Bout.

    Drugs should be made legal, like vodka is legal. Prices would come down to the joy of all meth heads. I doubt anyone I know would start using it though, even at $50 a pound, or $1 a pound. The money society would save on cops and ER personel could be put towards free public drug rehab centers. The drug dealers of tomorrow can stay home and sleep soundly with a clean conscience at night, like today's liquor store salesmen do, and earn good and steady money. The big obstacle to everybody's happiness is the government, as usual.

    Does nobody know that Mexican importers have had great relationships with China for years and years? I'd bet a good percentage of these guns come from China through leaky Mexican seaports.

    With all our aid to Mexico all we need to do is twist their arm a little bit to join the western world. If they allowed for foreign investment they could be a first world country with a growing middle class.

    Legalizing guns in Mexico and drugs in the US could make the problem evaporate overnight, but corrupt politicos on both sides of the border get too much power out of the status quo.

    Let's see. 1600 miles of border. Assuming a Soldier plus three support logisitics for every 50 yards each 8 hours times 24/7 will work out to a deployment of approximately three full Corps or about 221,000 total not including support elements necessary to maintain three Corps in theater.

    That is my idea of a secure border.

    As far as Hillary, I really need to keep my big mouth shut. Politics is not a good way for me to go through. :cuss:

    Says who? Mexico doesn't publish them, but does give them to BATFE. I've seen traces and personally viewed weapons that certainly did not come from military sales.

    However, quite of few of these Mexican shooting incidents are accompanied by hand grenades and rocket fire. Those certainly didn't come from southern AZ dealers.

    Lets look at this. It seems some are claiming the guns in Mexico are from the US[a complete joke] so "our" politicians are wringing there hands in despair and calling for more US gun laws. The fact that Mexico is shipping tons of cocaine to this country is just a footnote? Who should be pissed at who?

    I think siesmic sensors, razor wire, concrete fence, mines, and the occasional hot dog vendor, would do much for securing the border.

    As far as shared responsibility, I call BS. The Mexican gov't has shown no inclination to prevent passage from it's side, of it's people nor the ones from all the way down to the tip of South America.

    Mexico is in a quagmire that it's own apathy, indifference, and corruption has created. Blaming US made weapons on the problem, I don't think so.

    Woah semi auto weapons are no longer "conventional" weapons.
    If your not operating a bolt then it is unconventional!


    It is just looking for ways to further ban and restrict guns. Some of the border states have great firearm freedoms, and they want to end the "loopholes" of freedom.



    Restricting the 2nd Amendment for another country even if it was a legitimate reason would be wrong.
    Just like restricting the first Amendment such as certain books in America because they create problems or riots overseas would be wrong.
    There is a lot of content on the internet in the US that is illegal abroad, yet we don't ban the content here.


    The Mexican government is corrupt. The ATF has even arrested Mexican police, including some higher level police in the US trying to buy guns.
    The US government sells many ARs and tons of other military equipment to Mexico.
    There is so many billions of dollars involved in the drug trade that cartels can get whatever is necessary for thier operations, and have many sources for things like firearms. From the Mexican government at both LEO and military levels, from South American governments, from contacts in the US, even contacts overseas.
    They are are spending millions building submarines in the rainforest to smuggle drugs into the US!

    It would not only fail to disarm the cartels, but it is simply wrong to restrict American freedoms within America's borders for any foriegn nation.
    I don't care if copies of a book cause riots in your nation, you are not restricting our First Amendment rights to reduce your riots.
    The same goes for the 2nd Amendment.
