Stemming the Flow

Thanks to in Houston

What do you think about the 30 million unregistered cell phones? Could that be a way to make the richest man in the world even richer? Or, is that really going to help with the Mexican War on Drugs?

Speaking of which, is this a different kind of "War on Drugs" than the one in the States that everyone seems to think is a mistake?

Do you think it's good to attempt to raise awareness among gun dealers about the problem of straw purchasers?

What's your opinion. Please leave a comment.

  1. "A batch of AK-47s seized at a drug stash house in El Paso is still under investigation, and if the guns had crossed the border, investigators say their thousand dollar price tag would have doubled."

    These were not "straw purchased" AK-47s. They did not come from getting the maid to run to Wal-Mart. They were illegally imported, full auto AK-47s.

    "That kind of profit can drive even those who know the law to sometimes break it. A former El Paso FBI agent is on trial now charged with dealing firearms -- illegally. He's linked to a 50-caliber rifle used in a cartel shootout that killed a Mexican Army captain."

    According to MikeB's shared responsibility and iron pipeline rules, We should stop the FBI prom possessing such weapons so that they cannot be illegally sold.
