    "More than 70% of 29,284 firearms submitted to the U.S. Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for tracing by the Mexican government during 2009 and 2010 originated in the United States, according to the report."


    I am not advocating for a repeal of the 2nd amendment at all, but what are your opinions on gun control laws now knowing that so many US made weapons have found their way into the hands of drug cartels in mexico?

    This isn't a good reason for more gun control, it's a good reason for less drug control.

    yet we have very strict drunk driving laws. you can have your license taken away, you can have a breathalyzer installed in your car, you can go to jail and be ordered in to rehab program.

    you dont even need a license to get a gun, you can guy one at a gun show without a background check.

    they arent exactly equal.

    Are these US Made firearms, or firearms that were originally Purchased in the United States. There is a major difference. Smith & Wesson manufactures firearms here in Springfield, MA which are sold all over the country and the world. The US has the highest concentration of firearms manufacturers, so it would make sense that most of the guns in Mexico were manufactured here.

    The question that should be asked is... how did these guns come to be in the hands of these Mexicans. Were they stolen, bought legally from dealers, etc...

    As co-owner of a gun shop I'd like to thank them for their patronage.
