Feds raid Eagle Pass gun shop
By Guillermo Contreras

Federal agents raided an award-winning gun shop in Eagle Pass on Tuesday, alleging it aided in sending guns and ammo across the border.

Agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations descended on Hesles Gun Store in the center of town on the heels of a federal indictment that alleges its operators were complicit with smugglers suspected of supplying drug gangs in Mexico.

In 2010, Gov. Rick Perry commended the shop for 76 years in business and issued the patriarch, Rick Hesles Sr., an award for the accomplishment, according to an article in the Eagle Pass Business Journal.

Perry recognized the Hesles family for its “entrepreneurship and service to the state of Texas.”

Looks like they missed out on "Fast and Furious" immunity.

And Perry, of course, is showing his usually excellent taste.
