Obama Administration Lies About Arms Smuggling To Mexico

Lie, Lie, Lie. That's what the U.S. media and the Obama administration have been doing regarding drug related gun violence in Mexico. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator Diane Feinstein, and BATF Assistant Director William Hoover have all been blaming United States citizens for illegally providing 90 percent of the weapons used by Mexican drug gangs. Just one problem...they lie like rugs. The real number is around 17 percent.

I know you're thinking "why would they lie?" Easy, they don't believe in the U.S. Constitution, particularly the Second Amendment...and this is an effort to diminish the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens. It's a guilt trip designed to get the gullible to go along with new gun control measures.

Fox News reported there are a variety of sources for the weapons used by Mexican Drug Gangs:

"-- The Black Market. Mexico is a virtual arms bazaar, with fragmentation grenades from South Korea, AK-47s from China, and shoulder-fired rocket launchers from Spain, Israel and former Soviet bloc manufacturers.

-- Russian crime organizations. Interpol says Russian Mafia groups such as Poldolskaya and Moscow-based Solntsevskaya are actively trafficking drugs and arms in Mexico.

- South America. During the late 1990s, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) established a clandestine arms smuggling and drug trafficking partnership with the Tijuana cartel, according to the Federal Research Division report from the Library of Congress.

-- Asia. According to a 2006 Amnesty International Report, China has provided arms to countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Chinese assault weapons and Korean explosives have been recovered in Mexico.

-- The Mexican Army. More than 150,000 soldiers deserted in the last six years, according to Mexican Congressman Robert Badillo. Many took their weapons with them, including the standard issue M-16 assault rifle made in Belgium.

-- Guatemala. U.S. intelligence agencies say traffickers move immigrants, stolen cars, guns and drugs, including most of America's cocaine, along the porous Mexican-Guatemalan border. On March 27, La Hora, a Guatemalan newspaper, reported that police seized 500 grenades and a load of AK-47s on the border. Police say the cache was transported by a Mexican drug cartel operating out of Ixcan, a border town."

Don't be taken in by the Obama administration's lies. Don't put up with media that aids Obama by repeating his administration's lies. Don't give up your rights.
