The Minneapolis Star Tribune ran a four-part series on the gun smuggling business which has gone on between Minnesota and Mexico. Here's part one. (submitted by Dog Gone, of Penigma.blogspot.com)
All the old points are there, even the 90% figure that we all loved so much. But, what's new, very new for me, is that this activity is going on in states other than the oft-mentioned border states of Texas, Arizona and California.
I find it interesting that no one that I know of ever mentioned this as perhaps an explanation for the high numbers. Smuggling operations from Houston and Phoenix, as widespread as they are, would be hard-pressed to account for the volume. But, suddenly I have a different picture. Just like the guy featured in the Minnesota story, you've got brazen, enterprising men streaming in from every state in the lower 48, converging on those border crossings.
That would account for the volume they're always talking about.
