    The same cowboys who gave us the Siege at Ruby Ridge and the debacle at Waco had another idea. Why not ship guns to Mexico and try to trace them to drug cartels? I'll tell you why not. They are guns stupid, not cars. The guns have surfaced in a number of crime scenes including the deaths of American citizens. Is it time to reevaluate the ATF and maybe let them go back to chasing moonshiners and leave the complicated planning to the professionals.

    Anything you send into Mexico goes to the Cartels, they run that country.

    US Government-think at its finest.... Let's ship weapons to our enemies and see how they use them. I'm sure these weren't 5 shot J-Frame revolvers either. BATFE is one of the worst excuses for a Law Enforcement Organization out there.

    I am surprised they didn't send mortars, Tanks, Humvees, rocket launchers etc etc to Mexico and than the Cartel takes those as well.

    The ONLY way this would have been a good idea would have been to install GPS tracking chips in the firearms and 48 hours after they were delivered, target the tracking devices with cruise missiles.

    I don't think sending anything over there is a good idea, since it all ends up in the hands of the Cartels anyways. I think Americans really underestimate the control the Cartels have in Mexico, its even more powerful than the Taliban is in Afghanistan.
