SHOCKER: Mexico has lying Politicians also

Mexico depends on US aid and will to tow the party line and blame US gun stores for their problem. The deception continues to spread even though it has already been discredited. Like all of king obamas lies this one will continue to be told until the people have heard it enough to believe it.

12 April, 2009, FOX
Mexican Envoy Auturo Sarukhan defended his claim Sunday that 90 percent of the weapons intercepted in Mexico come from the U.S.
-By refusing to identify a problem, you have no hope to solve it. Stand up Auturo and be a man not a mouse.

Auturo Sarukhan, the Mexican ambassador to the United States, repeated and defended his claim that 90 percent of the weapons intercepted in Mexico come from the U.S.

During an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, Sarukhan said on the Arizona and Texas borders with Mexico alone, roughly 7,000 licenses for federal firearms had been granted.
-And so what? That is an indicator that the people are worried about Mexican criminals entering the US not an indicator that 7,000 dealers will sell illegal weapons. Only an idiot would sell a registered weapon knowing it would be used illegally. If you have proof, a single weapon was sold illegally then produce it.

“And a lot of the weapons that are being bought by the drug syndicates, either directly or through proxy purchases, are coming from those gun shops,” he said.

Sarukhan isn’t the only one to cite this myth. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, California Sen. Diane Feinstein and Willliam Hoover, assistant director for field operations at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have all said that 90 percent of weapons used to commit crimes in Mexico come from the U.S.

But in fact, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S.
-The ones found so far are not large caliber full automatic unbeatable death machines the press is making them out to be.

An ATF spokeswoman told FOXNews.com earlier this month in a clarification of the statistic used by her own agency’s assistant director “that over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S.”

But a large percentage of the guns recovered in Mexico do not get sent back to the U.S. for tracing because it is obvious from their markings that they do not come from the U.S.

“Not every weapon seized in Mexico has a serial number on it that would make it traceable, and the U.S. effort to trace weapons really only extends to weapons that have been in the U.S. market,” Matt Allen, special agent of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told FOX News earlier this month.

Sarukhan has claimed that Mexico seizes 2,000 guns a day from the United States, or 730,000 a year. But the official statistic from the Mexico attorney general’s office says Mexico seized 29,000 weapons in all of 2007 and 2008.
-The stats will not change the message, US gun owners bad, Mexico good. The government will continue this lie for years. We gun owners need to prepare for a long fight.

On “Face the Nation,” host Bob Schieffer asked Sarukhan for evidence to support his claim that most of the weapons seized are coming from the United States.

“The data we have is the one that we’ve been sharing with our counterparts in the U.S. government, ATF and the Justice Department, and other agencies that have been working with us to determine where those guns are coming from,” Sarukhan replied.
-Nice tap dance. Typical politician, he answered but said nothing.

For example, Sarukhan cited the Mexican border town of Reynosa where he said more than 250 assault weapons and half a million rounds of ammo were seized in November.

“These had just crossed over the border from the United States in Mexico,” he said. “By tracing these weapons, by looking at the types of weapons, we’re determining that most of these weapons are coming from the United States.”
-The issue is ripe for the gun control and hate America crowds but US weapons are not that hard to trace and if someone is arming thugs in Mexico, they will be caught and prosecuted. We have to ensure this does not morph into a mass punishment gun ban for law abiding Americans.

    Another fact the MSM and the Meskin’ government conveniently fail to mention is, the vast majority of American weapons that actually do end up in Mexico are STOLEN from law abiding Americans! There are literally millions of drug addicted people in America, the majority of those addicts got hooked on Mexican heroine, or as of the last few years, Mexican methamphetimine which is being produced in Mexico on a large scale now. Add to that marijuana and all the other elicit drugs flowing from Mexico and you have the REAL cause for American guns (and thousands of other American owned products like cars, trucks, heavy equipment, & on & on & on) ending up in Mexico.

    Drug dealers, from low level street dealers up to the major players in the cartels ENCOURAGE addicts to steal guns to trade for drugs! Guns, gold & vehicles are in fact favored by dealers because they produce greater profits than simple cash exchange does. A desperate junkie will eagerly trade 10’s of thousands of dollars worth of stolen guns for a small amount of drugs which cost the cartels mere pennies to produce. This is not a new or recent problem, this kind of vicious circle of drug induced crime has been going on for decades. It has gotten increasingly worse in recent years in direct relation to the uncontrolled increase of drugs being produced in Mexico and other countries. We can thank the corrupt Mexican government for that!

    All in all, both the Mexican government and the US government see this as an opportunity to exploit a long standing problem which they themselves have contributed to and failed to address. The Mexicans will blame America so they can deny their own huge failures and mass corruption, and the US govt. will use it as an excuse to persue their true intent…attacking the 2nd Amendment and the Constitutionally Empowered Gun Owners of America!

    Reagan Was Right! 1.) Wage WAR on the drug cartels! 2.) “The government is not the solution to our problems, the government IS the problem”!

    So as long as they don’t have American guns Mexicana will all of a sudden change and become law abiding citizens, yeah sure. This is the way I see it The guvment created these problems, all of them, from immigration to gun violence and then they want to rush in and fix it. Which means an erosion of our rights. What a great plan! I challenge anyone to come up with a plan that is better than the one they are using. We have been split between the adults and children. The children, primarily democrats, know that many of their constituents are not capable of living within American style rules.
    I’m not giving up my rights to anything so that more people who are fundamentally incapable of living by rules designed and outlined for Americans by Americans can live here. I have had enough from Mexico more than enough. I say get on your side of the border, quit committing crimes and show a teenie weenie bit of responsibility. Do you want to be a responsible adult American or the irresponsible child of banditos? I’m really not surprised that across the country we American patriots are terrorists, this after failing to name Islamic terrorists. I warned you about this trading liberty for security after 9-11. Most people thought I was nutz. I’m not, I’m only observant and I could see where it was all leading. This is one of the times I wished I was wrong.

    There are 55 socialists in da house! They comprise 38% of the judiciary committee! No wonder we are seeing what we are seeing regarding the writing and enforcement of our laws!

      The liberals their supporters and their crime ridden cities are ruining it for the rest of us. It’s like punishing the whole class for a few peoples actions. But that is the dirty little secret of progressive liberalism, collective punishment. We already see it being imposed on our youth in our schools. Like I said, they wish to make us all school kids once again. They can’t offend the culprit so everyone must collectively take the fall. Rewarding irresponsibility is the order of the day.


    • I was listening to Glenn Beck on the radio today, and he also mentioned that the “Progressive Caucus” was a bunch of socialist commies!

      Cheers

        Mexico is also angry with Europe and the Whopper.

        “It is not the first time that fast-food outlets have offended Mexican sensibilities. Mexicans and other Hispanics in the United States objected to a Taco Bell ad from the 1990s that featured a pint-sized talking Chihuahua that spoke with a Mexican accent”
        Apparently Mexicans were concerned that they will all be viewed as the stereotypical talking Chihuahua. Sensitive macho guys, who knew?

    I’d sooner believe that any civilian-style weapons found in Mexican hands would be to defend themselves and their families from the cartels.
    Of course, if Mexican authorities found the weapons, their owners might be treated the same as any criminal, since personal firearm ownership is essentially illegal (as long as the arresting authority isn’t corrupt ha little humor there)
