Obama administration wants to guard border to stop US guns from going to Mexico

The notion that if the US didn't have guns that Mexican drug lords wouldn't be able to get them to defend their valuable drugs and fight their drug wars is silly. Fox News has the story here:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the Obama administration would soon unveil a plan for dealing with rising violence along the U.S.-Mexico border, including more resources to stem the flow of dollars and guns to warring drug gangs, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"I think there will be some announcements with some specifics that either I or the president will be making in the coming weeks," Napolitano said Friday during an interview.

Napolitano said the plan would include more resources aimed at stopping U.S.-acquired firearms and cash earned from illicit drug sales flowing back across the border. Money and guns are fueling the escalating violence in Mexico that is spilling into U.S. communities, including in Arizona. Napolitano was the state's governor before joining the Obama cabinet. . . . .

If the elected clowns are correct, why has there not been a media blitz of Gun Shops being shut down for illegal sales?

Just on a lark, I decided to go to BATFE's website and see who was on their Most Wanted list.


Not one single Gun dealer was on the list. One would think that if thousands of Automatic Weapons were being sold by legitimate dealers, or even thieves, the BATFE might have just a few guys on their wanted list?

If U.S. Citizens are responsible for supplying an entire country with automatic weapons, why hasn't anyone noticed until now?

Either the BATFE is asleep, or someone is lying. Both, in my opinion...
