Who Is Arming the Mexican Drug Cartels?
by Michael Gaddy
*** begin quote ***
Wednesday, on MSNBC, in an interview by Andrea Mitchell, New York Congressional Representative, Nita Lowey stated 97% of the guns in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels originated in the US. Representative Lowey, in her support for a new Assault Weapons Ban, alleges these firearms are coming from the American gun owner. She is correct in her assertion many of the firearms being used by the cartels are coming from Americans. They are, but, from the American taxpayer, not the American gun owner!
The fact is: the Mexican authorities have refused to release the serial numbers of weapons confiscated from drug cartel members. Releasing the serial numbers would implicate the corrupt governments of the US and Mexico and their involvement in arming the drug cartels.
Considering the above, it is my belief the Mexican drug cartels are procuring a large percentage of weapons from the world’s largest supplier of these weapons: the United States government!

Certainly sounds like it.
We could eliminate this non-sense by ending the “drug war” in the US.
Imagine a country where what you put in your body was your personal business.
End welfare and then there’s no illegal immigrants.
End the drug war and let WalMart become the nation’s “drug dealer”.
Bet they do a far better job of cleaning up the problem.
Bud and Miller route salesmen don’t shoot it out.
No more drug overdose deaths from drugs cut with rat poison or not cut at all.
