BULLSHIT!! According to the GAO report, some 30,000 firearms were seized from criminals by Mexican authorities in 2008. Of these 30,000 firearms, information pertaining to 7,200 of them (24 percent) was submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for tracing. Of these 7,200 guns, only about 4,000 could be traced by the ATF, and of these 4,000, some 3,480 (87 percent) were shown to have come from the United States. This means that the 87 percent figure relates to the number of weapons submitted by the Mexican government to the ATF that could be successfully traced and not from the total number of weapons seized by Mexican authorities or even from the total number of weapons submitted to the ATF for tracing. In fact, the 3,480 guns positively traced to the United States equals less than 12 percent of the total arms seized in Mexico in 2008 and less than 48 percent of all those submitted by the Mexican government to the ATF for tracing. This means that almost 90 percent of the guns seized in Mexico in 2008 were not traced back to the United States. The remaining 22,800 firearms seized by Mexican authorities in 2008 were not traced for a variety of reasons. In addition to factors such as bureaucratic barriers and negligence, many of the weapons seized by Mexican authorities either do not bear serial numbers or have had their serial numbers altered or obliterated. It is also important to understand that the Mexican authorities simply don't bother to submit some classes of weapons to the ATF for tracing. Such weapons include firearms they identify as coming from their own military or police forces, or guns that they can trace back themselves as being sold through the Mexican Defense Department's Arms and Ammunition Marketing Division (UCAM). Likewise, they do not ask ATF to trace military ordnance from third countries like the South Korean fragmentation grenades commonly used in cartel attacks

wrestlingfan4ever76 (2 years ago)
The man who made this video obviously used to be a Mormon himself.  He must have left the church and decided to hate it so much that he spreads all these vicious lies about Mormons.  That is what happens to people who leave the church.  They then set their life out to defame it.  His face even looks genetically like a Mormon of the Western USA.  And those weird white Mormons that live south of the USA border are not really 'real' Mormons.  They are Jack-offs.  They have no affiliation with the Mormon church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).  The man narrating this video is a real joke.

xXP1LLZxX (3 years ago)
Actually its around 300 for American soldiers in Iraq, and 90,000 each year in the Mexican drug war..
The Scoop! (3 years ago)
American drug users finance the drug cartels and drug runners the weapons. Remember that "poor" ex-Marine caught running weapons across the border? He claimed to not know he was going into Mexico. Cameras caught him going into Mexico earlier that day and staking the place out. He had every opportunity to claim what he had and did only after he was search and it was found. If a Mexican had done that and claimed he didn't know what he was doing, no way would they have let him go.

+CALLTHEWAHMBULANCE Dumbass.  The President has very little influence over your daily life. YOU are the source of your problems. I am the source of my problems. Get it?  You are responsible for YOU. Gold standard?  What country uses that???  The Islamic State? Gold prices fluctuate wildly and it intrinsically has no value.  It just sits there.  It doesn't produce anything. Read Warren Buffet's opinion of gold.  
+Russell Scott our tax money pays for all that. We need a real president who will give the power back to the people and make it equal for everyone to succeed, and to create more jobs and stop printing out of thin air with nothing to back it up, why did we take the dollar off the gold standard, i know theres someone in control thats causing us to go down into a suciadal economic crash soon.

They find ways to get money it's not just thanks to the "U.S junkies".

Dave, if the drug market is legalised and regulated then the problem can be easily solved, but then you'll get hundreds of people like you crying out how immoral it is to legalise drugs, and regardless of your stance on if you think drugs are good or bad, it WOULD solve the problem.
