We now know, however, that the flow of weapons to the south is indeed, in part, coming from within the United States, not from dealers or their civilian customers, but specifically from the BATFE, which has been caught "walking" weapons—recently five hundred semiautomatic AR-15 rifles—across the border into Mexico in order to "boost" the statistics they have been using to try to limit our rights.
Five hundred items the media can call "machineguns" or "assault rifles". Five hundred civilian-legal weapons to "prove" their lying claims.
Let me repeat that for our slower readers in Keene, New Hampshire: the BATFE is smuggling semiautomatic weapons into Mexico to support their claim that the drug cartels are being equipped by American gun dealers.
One more time: the Mexican cartels get their guns from the U.S. government.
"Blanket directive?" Tell that to the widow and Fatherless children of killed Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry you asshats at F-Troop- his blood is on YOUR HANDS.
