hillary-clintonAfter hearing enough of the inflated and downright false statistics of the guns in Mexico being provided by the U.S., I’ve decided to get right down to the facts.  First of all, when you hear these statistics, consider the source.  I personally believe that anything that comes out of the mouth of Hilary Clinton or Dianne Fienstein—especially when it has to do with guns or self-defense–to be dramatically skewed. 

 

Of all the guns in Mexico, simply because there are some U.S. guns, does not mean they have all come from legal channels in the U.S.  Gun smuggling goes both ways.  In the event that the U.S. government issues guns to the Mexican Military in an effort to fight whatever wars rage in their land, it’s important to note that such guns would come with a caveat to be used for such purpose.  The fact that they are still ending up in the hands of drug-runners and immigrant criminals is not a reflection on the U.S. government, rather an expose on the corruption of government officials in the U.S.  In addition, according to Mexican Congressman, Robert Badilla, over 150,000 Mexican military members have abandoned their military duty and have taken their guns with them.

 

truth-guns-mexicoThe saying has been spread about by truly ignorant politicians and their loyal subjects (a.k.a. the mainstream media) that 90% of the guns in Mexico came from the U.S.  This is yet one more example of a lazy, knee-jerk media we have reporting our news to us today.  In fact, 83% of the guns in Mexico do not even have serial numbers or can even be traced via U.S. technology as they come from Asia, Israel, South Korea, China, Spain and Columbia.  However, of the guns that have been found WITH serial numbers, 90% OF THOSE GUNS have come from the U.S.  This fact means that only 17% of the guns found at crime scenes in Mexico have come from the U.S.!  And that my friends, is how such a ridiculous rumor has been perpetuated.
