The Big Clubs in Mexico's Drug War Aren't Slipping Through the Gun-Show Loophole
Another series of leaked State Department cables made public this week by WikiLeaks lend credence to investigative reports on gun trafficking and the drug war published by Narco News as far back as 2009.
The big battles in the drug war in Mexico are "not being fought with Saturday night specials, hobby rifles and hunting shotguns," Narco News reported in March 2009, against the grain, at a time when the mainstream media was pushing a narrative that assigned the blame for the rising tide of weapons flowing into Mexico to U.S. gun stores and gun shows.
Rather, we reported at the time, "the drug trafficking organizations are now in possession of high-powered munitions in vast quantities that can’t be explained by the gun-show loophole."
Those weapons, found in stashes seized by Mexican law enforcers and military over the past several years, include U.S.-military issued rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers and explosives.

Over the past few weeks, things have become very, very uneasy according to a good friend of mine down along the border who told me how the bridges were closed along the Rio yesterday due to violence in Mexico, however, other things have been going on.
He made me aware of a grenade attack on a bar at the end of last month:
Grenade tossed into 'Booty' bar fails to explodeThen, it was announced that the grenade was linked to recent attacks on a TV Station and consulate:

PHARR - Tragedy was avoided after a grenade thrown into a tavern outside the city failed to explode.
Deputies do not know who tossed the explosive inside El Booty Lounge, 3701 N. "I" Road late Saturday night, said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño.
Authorities evacuated the bar after they received a call about the explosive, which was apparently tossed into the bar. No injuries were reported and bomb did not detonate because both pins were not removed, Treviño said.
Booty Lounge grenade linked to consulate, TV station attacks

A live grenade tossed into a Pharr bar last month came from the same cache of weapons used in recent attacks on a Monterrey television station and that city's U.S. Consulate, law enforcement officials said.
Investigators have traced the explosives used in each incident to a lot manufactured in South Korea and later discovered in a stash house believed to be run by the Zetas, the heavily armed paramilitary wing of the Tamaulipas-based Gulf Cartel.
Yes, there are wars in Mexico and it long ago spilled North over the Rio Grande with thanks to the corrupt War On Some Drugs.
Prohibition has NEVER worked and NEVER will and our so-called leaders know this. Legalization/De-Criminalization will not solve all problems, but the MAJORITY of KILLINGS will end. The government bloat WILL decrease, you will have more money in your pocket and yes, you will have to worry about your children, but you already should be. Think back to when you were a teen; were you drinking bath-tub gin or just canned beer? No you were not as it was made cleanly, safely and with the consumer in mind. Right now, your kids are taking whatever they can get their grubby little mitts on and that SHIT is not safe. And do you know why they ingest that SHIT?
TEENAGERS + PROHIBITION = STUPIDITY
And then SO MANY of them carry those desires, tendencies and habits into their adult years because they still think it cool and you think lets lock those terrible
Demand and end to it NOW and demand the HEADS of the CORRUPT government employees who have long benefited TOO!
It is your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness at stake; but then again, that phrase probably does not mean a thing to the majority of the Republic...
