Shocking Report: Study Identifies -- Mexican Crime, American Guns

Shocking News! Not only is the US the number one abuser of drugs in the world with drug cartels from many countries fighting with each other to be our dealer, now new studies indicate three of four guns used in Mexican Violence came from US Border States!
ABC News Reports: Study of ATF Data Says Three Of Four Guns Used in Mexican Violence Come From US Border States
A shocking new report obtained by ABC News says that as many as three out of four guns used in crimes in Mexico can be traced to gun stores just across the border in the U.S. The numbers bolster complaints by Mexican officials that the country's unprecedented bloodshed – 28,000 people have died in drug-cartel violence since 2006 – is being fueled both by the U.S. appetite for drugs, and by American weapons.
"We can say that there is enormous violence in Mexico and most of the killing is done with guns and most of the guns used in the killing are originally from gun dealers in the United States," said Arkado Gerney, one of the report's authors.

The study, based on Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) data and prepared by the advocacy group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, shows that three out of four guns used in crimes in Mexico and submitted for tracing were sold in the four U.S. states that border Mexico.

According to the report, from 2006 through 2009, 19,000 guns used in crimes in Mexico were traced to an original sale at a US gun dealer, and the bulk of the guns came from Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Texas supplied four in ten of those weapons, and the other three border states provided an additional one third.

C'mon Dee. You know this isn't correct.

According to the NRA, KKK, ALIPAC, SDMM, VDARE and others, those guns come from sources other than the US.

Our gun loving nut would never be a party to something such as this.

Better check your sources.

I am glad the facts came out. People just don't want to believe the truth.

It is our addiction to drugs that is causing much of the violence within the cartels.

Like OUTSOURCING, no one wants to address the real issues, like Drugs/Cartels and Outsourcing and Lobbyists filling the pockets of our congresspeople and media so we do not even talk about the REAL Issues in America.
