The lying fascists of the Obama administration have been touting the lie that 90% of guns being used by the drug cartel terrorists in Mexico came from the United States. It’s a lie and they know it, most American gun owners knew it also but weren’t listened to by the media. Now Fox News has finally published the truth.
In other words, 68 percent of the guns that were recovered were never submitted for tracing. And when you weed out the roughly 6,000 guns that could not be traced from the remaining 32 percent, it means 83 percent of the guns found at crime scenes in Mexico could not be traced to the U.S.
Fully automatic weapons are just not available in the U.S. as everyone should know. That picture shows literally dozens of fully automatic AK-47 variants. But the picture that was shown by most U.S. news organizations was a version in which it was nearly impossible to identify the types of guns in the display.
The guns are coming from China, Russia, Venezuela (Did you wonder why Chavez wanted a shiny new AK-47 factory?), Guatemala, etc…
In fact the guns are finding their way across the border into the U.S.:
Ed Head, a firearms instructor in Arizona who spent 24 years with the U.S. Border Patrol, recently displayed an array of weapons considered “assault rifles” that are similar to those recovered in Mexico, but are unavailable for sale in the U.S.
“These kinds of guns — the auto versions of these guns — they are not coming from El Paso,” he said. “They are coming from other sources. They are brought in from Guatemala. They are brought in from places like China. They are being diverted from the military. But you don’t get these guns from the U.S.”
Many of the fully automatic weapons that have been seized in Mexico cannot be found in the U.S., but they are not uncommon in the Third World.
That doesn’t even begin to take into account the RPG grenade launchers and heavier weaponry:
The Mexican government said it has seized 2,239 grenades in the last two years — but those grenades and the rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) are unavailable in U.S. gun shops. The ones used in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey in October and a TV station in January were made in South Korea. Almost 70 similar grenades were seized in February in the bottom of a truck entering Mexico from Guatemala.
Chris Cox of the NRA lays the blame for these lies at the feet of the media and anti-gun politicians in the U.S.
“Reporter after politician after news anchor just disregards the truth on this,” Cox said. “The numbers are intentionally used to weaken the Second Amendment.”
“The predominant source of guns in Mexico is Central and South America. You also have Russian, Chinese and Israeli guns. It’s estimated that over 100,000 soldiers deserted the army to work for the drug cartels, and that ignores all the police. How many of them took their weapons with them?”
It is long past time for the United States to take the southern border seriously. Money can buy anything from the drug cartels, including passage for terrorists into the U.S..
