People are jokingly commenting on a past post asking what gun stores these came from. Well short answer. Most of the military grade stuff comes from South America and can be traced to US and Soviet shipments to a few countries back in the late 80’s. They were used to set up or dismantle governments all over the place back in the ideological battles of the cold war… The rest is civilian grade rifles that can (in more than one case) be traced back to Obama’s Fast and The Furious operation.

Mexican cartels and their weapons

I know this shit has been used as propaganda to take away gun rights from Americans. That is fucked up. But to deny that these are mostly US in origin isn’t helping anyone’s cause. This was an Obama administration fuck up.. own that shit. I have high hopes for this current adminstration, really. Despite all the anti Mexican stuff being propagated I’m not blind to the true problems that are actually effecting millions of lives on both sides of the border. Trump is looking out for his people. I respect that.

There are people who are making a killing off the current turmoil and propagating the antimaericanism sentiment in Mexico.. and those people are not your friends.

People ask why the Mexican Marines don’t apply the same aerial assaults on the Sinaloa Cartel in Culiacán. Well the answer is simple. They have anti-aircraft capabilities and have down a few helicopters already.
