Some 7,000 gun stores operate along the U.S.-Mexican border. Most are not required to notify authorities even if an individual buys dozens of assault weapons in a short period. In fiscal 2009 U.S. agents revoked the licenses of just 11 stores for violations. Once the guns are purchased -- usually by "straw" buyers acting on behalf of cartel middlemen -- they are easily trafficked across the border.
Duh, I wonder what should be done? It's really a tough one.
