Just a heads up, folks. Time for more emails, letters, phone calls to all those in congress to prevent the ratification of the treaty with Mexico that is designed to stop illicit firearms trafficking. It's also back-door gun control. Read it yourself at the link below. It says that illicit manufacturing of guns OR ammunition (etc) is illegal. It goes on to say that any manufacturing of guns and ammunition (etc) is "illicit" if accomplished without a license from the government. At the stroke of a pen, the government can control your use of firearms and prevent handloading your own ammo. If hand loading is made illegal and you can only buy commercially made ammunition, then all it takes is high taxes (like on alcohol and tobacco) to drive the price out of sight and to effectively disarm most of America. Anyone feel the water getting warmer?
- The border drug war problem would've been prevented had the border been placed under strong control ...promised and never delivered since as far back as the Reagan years when he promised that amnesty for illegals had to be coupled with strict employer sanctions if they hired illegal residents and strong control of our border. Every administration since then has side-stepped the issue and failed to address it. Now we have drug wars spilling into our country.
- Arms trafficking to/from Mexico is not the problem. Watch your TV and tell me if you see boxes of .223 confiscated ...or boxes of 7.62x39 or 7.62x51. Why buy a $1500 semi-automatic AR-15 that shoots under-powered ammunition when you can spend only $150-$200 for a fully-automatic AK-47 that shoots 7.62x39 or 7.62x51?? The guns along the border come from S. America and Eastern Europe ...not the US as Hillary and Obama propose on their way to use false premises to institute illegal gun control in the United States.
