Just saw this in the Houston Chronicle. Hope it's not BS.

Sorry about this article. Didn't read all of it before I copied it. It is a bunch of BS. Title said he was going to inforce the laws already on the books. But the article just talks about Obama's trip to Mexico.

Here is ABc's link.

He knows reinstating the AWB would be political suicide.
(Although some may argue he's already doing just that.)

Why bother? There are confirmed reports that he issued an order on inauguration day reclassifying ammo as hazardous materials, thereby opening them to all sorts of searches (delay tactics). Instead of spot checking containers, customs officials are now required to open and inspect every case. An inspection that would have taken a couple of days is now taking months. How does that affect the price and availability of ammo?

In this article, he says he wants to 'ban' the transfer of weapons going across the border. What do you think THAT means? I don't know, but I guarantee it won't be a positive step for the American gun owner.

You left off part of the subject line. Add ,YET to the end to make it correct.

Problem is on Mexico's end. They have to much corruption with law enforcement/border security officials so they turn a blind eye to stuff coming into their country. I hate how Mexico points to the finger to us, sure the guns are being bought here but if they don't inspect what is coming into their country then the problem is on their end. If the guns were banned here they drug cartels would just smuggle them in from other countries since they have the money to do so.

And despite Obama's claim that 90% of the guns going to Mexico come from the U.S., we know better:
