Mexican Ambassador Uses the Word "Gobbledygook"

 The Houston Chronicle reports

In a slap at gun-rights advocates, the Mexican ambassador to the U.S. dismissed accusations that Mexico is seeking to undermine the Second Amendment in order to curb the influx of U.S.-purchased guns. 

"There is an 'urban myth' out there that somehow the Mexican government is seeking to lobby against and destroy the rights enshrined in the Second Amendment," said Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan. "This is gobbledygook."
The rest of the article is just more of what we've heard over and over again. I just wanted to get that quote in there.

What do you think?  Is "gobbledygook," a good word to describe this and some of the other pro-gun myths?  I think so.

  1. I can think of harsher terms than that. The phrase "conspiratorial paranoia of the NRA" comes to mind.

  2. Am I supposed to be grateful that the Mexican ambassador doesn't want to undermine my Second Amendment rights? How special that the representative of that particular oligarchy is willing to toss me a bone. Of course, Mexicans supposedly have gun rights too, but we see how that gets taken away in the corrupt reality of their society. He may feel free to take his meddling back south of the border and stay there.

  3. Really? Is he saying Calderon isn’t trying to get an Assault Weapons Ban back on the books in the US?

  5. Funny how those Mexican drug runners will cross the border to pay premium prices, ( over $1,000.00 in a lot of cases), for semi-automatic "assault weapons" when they can buy fully automatic weapons in their own country for a couple of hundred bucks from their own corrupt military and police forces.

    And don't forget, our "vaunted" ATF coerced gun shop owners to sell guns to straw purchasers even though they initially refused to do so.
