Mexico Wants U.S. Senate To Create Registry Of Gun Owners In Border States…
Mexico To Ask U.S. Senate To Create Registry Of Gun Owners In Border States
Mexican lawmakers will ask the U.S. Senate to create a registry of all commercialized firearms in border states, which includes California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Mexico says it will make it easier to trace guns used in violent attacks.
The measure was reportedly approved on January 9 by Mexico’s Permanent Commission, a government entity that meets when Mexico’s Senate and the Chamber of Deputies is in recess. Gun owners in Arizona are calling the proposal “foolish” and an “invasion of privacy.”
A number of the gun owners interviewed by KPHO-TV also referenced the Obama administration’s disastrous gun-running operation known as “Fast and Furious.”
The operation, conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), allowed illegal straw buyers to walk across the border with nearly 2,000 firearms, including semi-automatic rifles. The weapons ultimately ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartel members and were used in a number of crimes, including murders and kidnappings.
Further, a gun from Fast and Furious was found at the murder scene of U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry in December of 2010.
Democrats in Congress have been calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and universal background checks for all firearms sales, some even calling for a national gun registry. Further, Democrats in Missouri and California have proposed bills that would result in the possible confiscation of semi-automatic rifles.
Wild Thing's comment.................
Mexico sure has a lot of nerve. I wish we had true leadership that would tell Mexico to go jump in a lake with their demands on our country.
Remember how Mexico's president a few years ago went all around our country demanding we allow the illegals to come here. I will never forget that SOB.

If I were president of Mexico, I would be embarrassed if my citizens were doing all they could to leave. But, it would take an honorable man to be embarrassed over that and Mexico hasn't have a honorable man in charge for quite a while.
