Every now and then, the national media will report on the drug violence plaguing Mexico, and will try to place the blame on American gun shows or gun owners. But when grenades are flying through the air in Monterrey, I think it's safe to say the law-abiding gun owners in the United States aren't to blame.



So who is? As the Associated Press points out, corruption is widespread, and may reach the highest levels of government. If drug gangs are getting things like grenades and fully automatic rifles, you can't help but wonder about the corruption in the Mexican military as well.



The next time the national media try to say that Mexico's violence is the fault of the Second Amendment, ask yourself why some reporters are so eager to blame U.S. gun owners instead of the people responsible for the drug trade, the corruption and the violence.

WHAT!!!???

What in the hell does the 2nd Amendment or any other Amendment of the United States of America have to do with Mexican laws or lack of laws or lack of enforcement on the Mexican side of the fence? The answer: NONE!

As Americans, we have the right to own firearms, including class III automatic weapons (when properly registered). This has nothing to do with Mexicans that own or carry firearms or grenades or anything else for that matter, even if they are purchasing them here and smuggling them there. Our laws do not allow for them to own or purchase weapons here. So if they are doing it illegally, it has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment, and everything to do with lack of border regulation and enforcement on BOTH sides.
