Holder Blames Lack of U.S. Gun Control for MX Drug Cartel Problem

Published:

According to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, the United States is “losing the battle” to stem the flow of illegal guns into Mexico. Holder contends that Congress is partially to blame for the fact that American guns are landing in the hands of Mexican drug cartels which are responsible for murdering tens of thousands of people because Congress refuses to pass stringent gun control. The irony of Holder’s assertions given the recent revelations regarding the ATF’s and DOJ’s botched Project Gunrunner scandal has not gone unnoticed.

Holder indicates that attempts on the part of Congress to stop the flow of American guns to Mexican drug cartels has been “flawed” and places much of the blame on what he views as congressional contempt toward gun control.

The Guardian reports,

Holder described as "flawed" American attempts to break the cycle, in which the profits from selling illegal drugs in the United States are used to buy guns that are shipped across the Mexican border to the cartels which use them to protect their operations — and conduct a small scale war in which 40,000 Mexicans have been killed over the past five years — in order to send more drugs to the US. He noted that of 94,000 weapons captured from drug traffickers by the Mexican authorities, more than 64,000 originated in the U.S.

“We are losing the battle to stop the flow of illegal guns to Mexico,” said Holder, who claims that the federal authorities are grappling with a “lack of effective enforcement tools,” which he contends include tough legislation to prosecute gun traffickers.

The biggest "battle" the United States is losing is against the selection and election of lying, pinche sacks of dog merde to high office. Cussing Face

Yep, That is what they wanted in the end. Gun control in the U.S. Do away with the constitutional right to bear arms.
Now there must be other sources for the Mexicans to purchase weapons. South America is full of guns and gorilla fighters.

@JAP69: Yeah, plenty of weapons coming from China, and FSU nations -- some country-of-origin branded and others copies of anglophone models -- but they won't let that be widely known.

Agree with jarasan --> treason.   So should the ATF and H. Clinton and Obama if there is evidence of their involvement. It was a conspiracy to usurp the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and violation of oath.

If Holder would enforce the laws we do have (instead of breaking them), this would cease to be a problem.

I hope this lying basterd is prosecuted and put in prison with all the other lying basterd criminals once we get them out of office.
They are an insult to the offices they hold.
