Eddie Espinoza, former Mayor of Columbus NM Gets 51 Months for Gun Smuggling

ex-mayor and convicted gun smuggler Eddie Espinoza

 Reuters reports

The ousted mayor of a small New Mexico border town who helped run nearly 200 firearms to a violent Mexican drug cartel was sentenced on Thursday to 51 months in prison, authorities said.
Simple regulations like reporting multiple sales and registering newly bought firearms to the person who buys them could put an end to this kind of thing. Yet, the gun-rights crowd oppose such initiatives.

That makes them complicit.  That's why they're partly responsible for  the damage that is done.
