PostHeaderIcon They Want Our Guns

Dan Gifford has an informative piece in Big Hollywood entitled, “The ‘America Is Arming Mexico’s Drug Gangs’ Lie“:

“There is an iron river of guns that flows South into Mexico [from the United States] to supply criminal organizations on the border,” says Tom Mangan, senior special agent with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) in Phoenix. “They are in the market for machine guns, hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles,” he continues. That’s right. The drug gangs can’t buy that and other military stuff like the 40MM grenades (the silver things in the upper left) and the rifles with launchers shown in the photo below in Mexico, so they drive to the United States and purchase them from American gun dealers at retail. Isn’t that the story you’ve been told?  Well, congratulations. America’s First Amendment protected propaganda ministry has punked you on another important issue — this time on behalf of dissembling officials and gun confiscation advocates.

After explaining the obvious that they are not available in our gun stores either, he offers a snippet from a 1996 Washington Post piece that really disappointed me, because I like Charles Krauthammer:

Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is symbolic — purely symbolic … In fact, the assault weapons ban will have no effect either on the crime rate or on personal security. Nonetheless, it is a good idea … Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation … Ultimately, a civilized society must disarm its citizenry if it is to have a modicum of domestic tranquillity of the kind enjoyed in sister democracies like Canada and Britain … Yes, Sarah Brady is doing God’s work.

Then, from the LA Times, of all places, the truth regarding their source:

Most of these [military] weapons are being smuggled from Central American countries or by sea, eluding U.S. and Mexican monitors who are focused on the smuggling of semi-automatic and conventional weapons purchased from dealers in the U.S. border states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. . . . The enhanced weaponry represents a wide sampling from the international arms bazaar, with grenades and launchers produced by U.S., South Korean, Israeli, Spanish or former Soviet bloc manufacturers. Many had been sold legally to governments, including Mexico’s, and then were diverted onto the black market. Some may be sold directly to the traffickers by corrupt elements of national armies, authorities and experts say … These groups appear to be taking advantage of a robust global black market and porous borders, especially between Mexico and Guatemala. Some of the weapons are left over from the wars that the United States helped fight in Central America, U.S. officials said.

So, after all the hard work and gains of the NRA, et al, over the past decade; we are back to square one in ’96, and the sheeple are being once again brainwashed about how some guns are too scary, have no place in a civilized society, and need to be banned. This won’t end well this time. ◄Dave►

    I live 80 miles from the Mexican border and have seen first hand the drug gang’s violence. It is unbelievable to me that Hillary and the other anti gunners would say these things about America. As stated in the article the guns the “Narcos” have in Mexico are not purchased at gun shows or from gun dealers. The time has come for Americans to stand up and tell these socialists that we (America) are not responsible for the ills of corrupt countries like Mexico and that the Mexican government needs to take responsibility for their actions and get to work fixing their problems.

    I don’t think people realize just how close to taking our right to bear arms away the govt. is! With the constant bailout’s and the money printing which goes along with it, we now have the worlds largest holder of dollar treasury certificates, CHINA, asking for another World Currency. Once the Dollar is taken off as the currency which the whole world floats on then that is it. Dollar crash, not in years but in days. Look at your history books people, if you don’t believe me. As soon as that happens, there will be riots in the streets, civil disturbance, throw in a false flag “terrorist” attack, and what do you get??? Obama gets to use his dictatorial rights given him by the last Moron we carelessly allowed to disgrace the Constitution. You will see Martial Law, the only now coming to light over 600 FEMA camps will be filled up. Not with the supposed use of these camps, in case our boarders are over run, but by the hard working American Taxpayer. If you think I jest or am a little out there, Google ‘FEMA Camps’ do the research yourself. Stop being fed your info, follow up and do your own reserach, come up with your own theories and educate your friends and neighbor’s. But DO IT now. We might still be able to effect change with out the chaos, violence and loss this coming Revolution will bring. Haven’t we progressed far enough to be able to have an ‘intellectual revolution’ rather then the kind where good men and women have to die to bring about what we once had? The start of the bad times will be when they come for the guns. Again, Historically, every dictatorship or tyrannical ruler has taken the citizens arms first, then their other freedom. When will the sheep get it? The Criminals will always be able to get guns, by definition that is what a criminal is, law breaker. I can get a gun illegally cheaper then if I go to the gun store and buy it legally, oh, and on the street, there is no waiting period! The right to bear arms is not about hunting, not about crime, it is about letting the government know, if they try to rule by tyranny the people have the means of redress. In the founding fathers time sometimes depending where you settled it was a duty to be an armed citizen just to protect your house and town from attack from natives etc. but the addition in the constitution is not even about that, it is not about hunting, sport shooting,etc. it is clearly about not being left at the mercy of the govt., put here to serve us, not rule us, serve us, protect us, and keep us available to live a life free from burdens of???? You guessed it… burdens of BIG GOVERNMENT, you know, OVER TAXATION, Over spending due to it, over ruling each states sovereignty, invading your privacy, you know little things like that.
    That’s all I know for now, tune in next time when we will discuss why in the hell we still have a FEDERAL RESERVE which has no obligation nor does it answer to the Govt., no regulations, no oversight, is not a government institution, is a Private Bank whose stock can’t be sold only inherited and yet gets to control our economy, tax the American Worker and decide once the banks suck the country dry to pring more money to give to the banks financed by the American Taxpayer, oh, not really the American Taxpayer today, but his children and their children? Are you F*&cking SERIOUS people???
