71. 'US IS A VAST ARMS BAZAAR FOR MEXICAN CARTELS . . ." NY Times

Michael Moore was an NRA member and tells how right wing and neo-con it's become ---

But, let's give an assault weapon to everyone --

In fact, let's demand everyone has at least one --- maybe two!!

US IS A VAST ARMS BAZAAR FOR MEXICAN CARTELS . . . . (MYT)

Mexican authorities have long complained that American gun dealers are arming the cartels. This case is the most prominent prosecution of an American gun dealer since the United States promised Mexico two years ago it would clamp down on the smuggling of weapons across the border. It also offers a rare glimpse of how weapons delivered to American gun dealers are being moved into Mexico and wielded in horrific crimes.

----------------

Drug gangs seek out guns in the United States because the gun-control laws are far tougher in Mexico. Mexican civilians must get approval from the military to buy guns and they cannot own large-caliber rifles or high-powered pistols, which are considered military weapons.
