Project Gunwalker : An international incident

Turns out the Mexicans werent included on the information the American government was allowing semiautomatic rifle to "walk" across the border into the hands of criminals and murderers.  Think about how you would feel if the opposite was true: fighting mad?

MEXICO CITY – Legislators from all of Mexico's three major parties in congress are calling for a joint U.S.-Mexico working group to examine accusations that U.S. federal agents allowed hundreds of guns to flow into Mexico.
Congressman Humberto Trevino estimated Tuesday that 150 shooting injuries or deaths have been linked to guns that were allowed to proceed into Mexico as part of a U.S. effort to build cases against traffickers.
Two of those weapons were involved in the killing of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent in December in southeastern Arizona.
Mexican drug cartels frequently pay straw purchasers to buy weapons at U.S. gun stores and smuggle them south to avoid stringent gun-control laws in Mexico.

The ATF royally screwed up, after so many previous screw ups. Too bad the lousy gun grabbing laws wont go down the drain with the ATF. 

Update from David Codrea, National Gun Rights Examiner:

ATF is “closing ranks and circling the wagons,” William La Jeunesse of Fox News reports.
“This is much bigger than Brian Terry,” he concludes, with an assessment that the failed ATF policy of letting guns be sold to cartels through straw purchasers is “becoming a major scandal.”


  1. I know it's wrong, and I'm glad they are finally making a formal inquiry.

    But, I also think about how I would feel if Mexico let thousands of criminals and murders walk into America. Even encouraged them to walk into America.

  2. I couldn't agree with you more, Reg. My dad lives close to the Texas border, and illegals are a huge issue. The administration has no interest in sewing up the border, as that would cut off new constituents for the Democratic party.

  3. Maybe we should make them a trade: if Mexico stops sending criminals, murderers, and the rest of the illegals across, we'll stop sending guns. Otherwise, maybe we need to arm the Mexican citizens, so they can revolt like the folks in Libya. Or at least defend themselves against the gov't-supported cartels.

    I really feel for the folks who live on or even near the border. It has got to be a real nightmare.
