Drugs go north, guns go south. Err… Maybe not

Ok, that was horrible. What I am referring to is the whole myth that most of mexico’s gun violence is due to American guns. The whole argument is that 90% of the guns seized by the Mexican government are from the US. The fact of the matter is 90% of TRACEABLE guns are from the US. The actual figure (according to ATF officials) is about 17% (83% could not be traced back to the US).

According to this article, Mexican prison guard allow inmates to go out, give them weapons and go out and kill people for drug related reasons. Just goes to show how corrupt Mexico is (Not that anyone knew that already!).
