    Feds Crack Down On Illegal Gun Buys - Houston News Story - KPRC Houston

    "The No. 1 source area in Texas is the Houston area," said Special Agent in Charge of the ATF's Houston Division, J. Dewey Webb, when asked about illegal gun purchases winding up in Mexico. "A lot is going to supply the cartels' private armies."

    "It's very enticing if you go to somebody whose working at a fast food restaurant and say, 'Hey, you can make $500 a day, go buy me 10 guns at 10 different dealers,'" said Webb.


    Jackholes like these are one of the reasons why it helps the Lefty's cause to put more bans on our rights... :332:

    About as good as the war on poverty, or any other liberal feel good program.
    Remember it's about the thought not the results.:banghead:

    I believe all these Gun Laws are too strict to begin with.

    But the FFL's seem to be the only ones suffering in this story since they had to endure the actual investigation. They are technically agents of the Feds so they know the drill.

    Why would they want semi-auto when they CAN buy full-auto from another country?

    One thing to keep in mind is that most guns are illegal in the hands of private citizens in Mexico. As a result, it takes a good 30 minutes to an hour to find one. ANYONE that thinks they're safer because guns are illegal should take a look at what's gone in in Mexico over the past 30 years - not just the drug cartels, but the corruption and outright trampling of the general population.
    I stopped travelling on business in Mexico about 20 years ago - nowadays, if someone wants me down there bad enough, they prepay: R&K insurance; Irrevocable Letter of Credit in my favor at MY bank for any vehicle, tools, etc that I'll have with me; all labor/travel/expenses. They also agree to have someone either meet me at the border or the airport - at least one escort to be legally (by Mexico's standards) armed at ALL times and with me while in-country. Needless to say, that runs off 99% of the folks - which is fine with me. The 1% that DO comply ensure that I don't run into any problems - which is the main purpose!
    Folks that travel ANYWHERE in Mexico on vacation do so at their (GREAT, IMO) peril - there's NOTHING down there that I want/need any more. It's a shame, because it's a beautiful country with some wonderful folks - but their government sux.

    I have taken several week-or-longer trips into Mexico in the past. There are some very fine people down there, but I won't even consider going to the border towns any longer.
