Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Let's assume the people actually buying these guns did not jump a fence, that they have visas or maybe are US citizens. So they go to a Texas gun show and load up on quality American firearms, maybe file off the automatic override to take full advantage of the weapons. What's the problem? The guns are inanimate objects, they don't kill anyone. And America has no obligation to trace these guns beyond the Mexican border or get picky about who winds up with them, right?
Gun owners, you spent decades creating the environment where America can be the arms merchant for the world. Don't get soft over a little spilt blood. After all, it's only Mexicans.
"And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit."

If a licensed dealer is selling guns illegally, what new law will stop him?
Seems to me that better enforcement of current laws will be sufficient.
And the argument to unconstitutionally restrict the rights of law abiding Americans so as to reduce crime in Mexico?
I havent heard anything that asinine since... well... EVER.

You know, if there weren't such a demand for illegal Mexican drugs here in the United States, those cartels wouldn't be able to afford the weapons they use to attack American law enforcement officials.
Perhaps instead of trying to impose further restrictions against the rights of American citizens, we should abolish the asinine drug laws that make these organized criminal syndicates possible.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
