When I saw this story my first thought was, "I wonder if these gun toting cartel members got any of there guns from the ATF sale of about 2,000 assault rifles."
What is really amazing to me is that I see and hear ads for Mexican vacations on TV and Radio.
How stupid it that. There is no way in hell I would cross the border for any reason.
I under stand that in 2010 over 34,000 people were killed by the drug cartels in Mexico.
They also love to kidnap Americans.
So do you think it's a good idea to go there?

MONTERREY – Two dozen gunmen burst into a casino in northern Mexico on Thursday, doused it with gasoline and started a fire that trapped gamblers inside, killing 53 people and injuring a dozen more, authorities said.The fire at the Casino Royale in Monterrey, a city that has seen a surge in drug cartel-related violence, represented one of the deadliest attacks on an entertainment center in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against drug cartels in late 2006.
"This is a night of sadness for Mexico," federal security spokesman Alejandro Poire said in a televised address. "These unspeakable acts of terror will not go unpunished."
