    Ok...so Mexico's legislature voted to ask the US federal government to do something that is against US law.

    They can ask for anything they want...

    Uh, that's an easy task for us at least. For a list of gun owners in Texas, just grab a phone book. Done.

    Why don`t we counter by demanding the government of Mejico (Mexico) pay the USA 10 barrels of oil for each of their nationals who enter the USA illegally?
    Better yet demand a registry of all Mexican nationals who have been convicted of any violations more serious than illegal parking? Then when we nab one of them on that list charge Mexico One Million Dollars , for each and everyone we nab?

    Shipping them a pallet of phone books from the border states would be a pretty hilarious response to such an idiotic request.

    Past experience tells me that our president might consider the request to be a good excuse to propose a law that would make such a list possible. :rolleyes:

    I had a friend, and ex employee who lives near the Border, Los Cruces, in New Mexico. I haven't spoken to him in 3 years, after he flew up to talk about opening a computer business, and wanted to buy some pot and smoke it with his 16 yr old Daughter who he brought along with him, I told him we don't allow that kind of behavior, and that he should leave, he turned into a freak of some kind, but he lived in new mexico,for the past 25 yrs, and told us that you could drive right into mexico without being stopped, right from the highway, he was doing computer repairs in border towns, and other dirty places on both sides of the border, and charging rediculous prices. I kind of was suspect who his clients were, and he would not make it home one night. But he insisted that you can drive right in from a main highway without going thru a checkpoint.
    I found that hard to believe but he swore that if you stayed on the highway you entered mexico.

    Given the long border that we share with Mx I'm sure there are lots and lots of side roads that are not manned in anyway.

    Wait just a second. Mexico wants a US gun registry because of Fast and Furious? Does anyone else think this is pure crap? Mexico wants to keep track of legal gun owners in the US because the government conspired to supply drug cartels with weapons?

    Now I am not a conspiracy nut or anything like that but this sure enforces my belief that anything government touches gets screwed up. I guess this just shows that Mexican government is even stupider than in the US.

    And preferably, no fast-and-furious weapons in their hands.

    With the current state of the border and Mexico, I believe the drug cartels would use the names of those on that illegally supplied document as a hit list, then steal all the weapons, smuggle them across the border, and continue to murder at will.

    Idiots. Bona fide, card-carrying idiots (Mexican government).

    I'd nullify the NFA if I though I could get away with it. But he and I are both bound by the law, so we can't.

    Judging by his actions, O'bammy doesn't appear to believe that the law restricts him in any way. I like the phone book idea.

    A reasonable response would be to politely acknowledge that firearms are smuggled into Mexico and assure them it will be stopped… Followed by completely shutting down our southern border.

    You could probably go to any home under construction near Memphis, and check cars with Desoto County (MS) tags.
    Most of the workers speak little or no habla ingles.

    Listen for the exotic polka music echoing from the roof.

    Well it's proof that Mexico is still scapegoating American gunowners for thier epidemic of violence and corruption. Despite having almost no legal gun ownership in thier country then have over 100,000 murders per year. Some cities have 50 bodies a day. Sometimes dumped into a single pile on the street or shallow grave.

    This is their version of a feel good measure to distract thier populace from thier violence. Blame us. Then when they don't get the list, they will blame us for that too.

    Ahhh, you mean like the long-dreaded list of Executive Orders he passed which banned guns, required NICS to reject all gun checks, required FFLs to stop selling ARs and 30rd. mags, declared AR-15s NFA weapons and all that other stuff folks said he would do because he doesn't care about the law?

    That list of milquetoast E.O.s he finally came up with sure did look like he was restrained pretty tightly by what the law would allow him to do.

    Or maybe he was just being really, really nice to us out of the goodness of his heart.
