Arms and the strife in Mexico
Kurt Hoffman has thoughts on the issue.
If all the doofuses that take drugs stopped, the money would stop.(and the corruption) Of course the cabal that really runs our government's policies want the drugs to continue remember they use drugs too, in between whining about "children" dying in random gun violence. Liberalism really is a mental disease witness you can't have a rational discussion with Liberals about anything!

If all the doofuses who wanted to stop people from selling and taking drugs under penalty of imprisonment would just stop their pointless drug war, the money would stop, as would the corruption and violence, just as it did following the repeal of alcohol prohibition in this country. Conservatives all really are mentally diseased, you can't have a rational discussion with conservatives about drug prohibition.
A true "conservative" should be opposed to drug prohibition just like a true "liberal" should support gun rights. There is no point to victimless crimes such as the "crime" of merely possessing a gun or a drug. Criminal law is only appropriate to deal when one person's behavior causes harm to another, in which case the law penalizes the behavior and not the existence and possession of a substance.

I'd be curious to see how many of those black rifles passed through the Mexican Army first. Or is Mexico manufacturing Colt's in country now?

Actually, IF the government would not unconstitutionally prohibit drugs (explain why the 18th amendment was necessary, but no such further amendment has been made for drugs), the problem would be lessened. The 18th made crime rise so that the governmnet could come in a protect us.
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgobllins, all of them imaginary." - HL Mencken
Now as to the rifles. The news stations, under government gun-grabber influence, claim the AK-47s are coming from the US. RIGHT! A semiauto AK costs upwards of $600 in the US. A fullauto AK sells for about $15 in the world markets. Even drug dealers can figure that one out. Typical lying garbage spewed forth from the mouths of the media.

Looks like the lefty radicals in Switzerland finally got enough signatures to hold a national referendum on whether or not the Swiss militia should store their Stg 90s in their homes anymore. Also, the 24 Feb 09 AP article on CNSnews.com mentions arms class prohibitions, too. Depending on how this goes, this Swiss vote could be a watershed moment for freedom or the forces of darkness.
