    The truth is that far more U.S. guns make it into the Mexican drug wars from sales at gun shows and through other loopholes that are steadfastly defended by the NRA and their stooges in the GOP.

    “Fast and Furious”, was probably the case where his responses to idiot Republicans in committee made pretty good sense. He did say “few” weeks in his first discussion with these morons, and he does run a huge agency and doesn’t have daily “micro-managment” responsibility. Now Ashcroft, Gonzales, and well, “W”, and Cheney making up Constitutional law on the fly? How ‘bout Cheney’s number one right-hand man “outing” a CIA agent, at his order? Oh, right.

    The AG may indeed have some things to be more “straightforward” about, but this isn’t one.

    In these times may we all have enough reserves (scarce as they may be) to keep trying to find our way through the maze of lies in this world, including the ones we’ve concocted at times too fool ourselves.

    Of course some guns get through! Enforcing the border may shut down the flow of future Democrat party voters (illegal aliens).
    Close the border and this stops now.

    The same might be asked of you for stopping at the first article that supports your side!

    “The American arms being used have been primarily provided by the US Government to the Mexican Government to conduct their war on drugs. How were the drug lords able to acquire these weapons? Is it possible they are so powerful, they were able to overcome Mexican Government forces and seize their weapons? If you have two rivaling factions, both expending manpower and gun power to maintain their position, how much is left for fighting a government whose military backing is funded by the US waged war on drugs? If looked at simply from the perspective of rivaling gangs, the solution to ending the blood feud does seem simple. Restrict border passage, erect a wall to prevent illegal immigration, and crack down on liberal gun laws in border towns.

    The perspective is flawed. Logically, would two rivaling gangs be able to fight each other, the government, the US Drug Enforcement Agency, and the law abiding populace in a country of millions, without some serious back-up? These are not rivaling gangs, but organized crime, with its roots buried deeply into Mexican politics and Mexican enterprise. …….

    While the war on drugs has already cost tax payers an enormous amount of money on both sides of the border, and taken the lives of innocent men, women and children, it has become a handy tool for a US Government that never has been very good at accepting responsibility for its mistakes and poor judgment. Gun rights activists are angry at the Supreme Court decision to monitor firearm sales in the border states as they feel it’s a way of circumventing the Second Amendment right to bear arms without a Congressional vote. Proponents for stricter immigration laws need only point to the violence in Mexico as a good reason for such harsh measures."’s-war-on-drugs/
