    Well we all hoped we would never see a story like this but sad to say it was bound to happen.:(
    Sooner or later the ATF was going to find someone selling guns to Mexico cartels.
    Can't wait to see what kind of twist the main stream media puts on this!!!!:icon_popcorn::332:

    I've seen a lot of Ford Trucks on Mexican and American news clips. We should punish all American truck drivers for this.


    If this guy was doing something illegal, I hope they issue him powdered soap ... it takes longer to pick up.

    That happened over a year ago. This is one incident that fueled the start of the "90% of seized Mexico weapons come from the U.S." hysteria.

    Sometimes it's people who say they support gun ownership etc. etc. that are the anti-gun folks best friend.

    BTW, besides this, there was the handful of young 20-something guys buying AR's around Houston for sale in Mexico. They were busted but the stores, including Carters Country reported a parge number of guns sold, all legally to these few POS trying t make a few bucks for themselves with no regard to the harm they did in the bigger picture. The future of American Business and Politics at work....

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Published: March 19, 2009
    A judge dismissed criminal charges against a Phoenix gun shop owner accused of supplying firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Judge Robert L. Gottsfield of Maricopa County Superior Court ruled that the prosecution's evidence against the shop owner, George Iknadosian, was not sufficient to support conviction and that all of the gun purchases had been legal, even if weapons ended up with the cartels. Mr. Iknadosian, 47, was accused of selling more than 700 weapons to straw buyers, knowing that the firearms were bought on behalf of drug cartels. He had been charged with fraud, money-laundering and other offenses.
