The problem of smuggling guns south of the border is solved!

by Chad D. Baus

The Houston, Texas CBS affilate is reporting that on February 17, Mexico President Felipe Calderon held yet another press conference in which he blamed America's Second Amendment for his adminstrations's failure to control its drug cartels.

From the article:

"Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we're suffering," Calderon said in English during the unveiling ceremony.

"The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico," he added.

Before [the press conference], Calderon supervised the destruction of more than 7,500 automatic rifles and handguns at a military base in Ciudad Juarez.

Calderon said more than 140,000 weapons have been seized since December 2006, when he launched a crackdown against drug traffickers. More than 47,500 people have been killed since then.

One of the cities most affected by the violence is Ciudad Juarez, where more than 9,000 have died in drug violence since 2008.

Disappointingly, Calderon apparently didn't specifically address his comments to where it could have helped the most - namely to the Obama administration's Department of Justice and BATFE, which has been exposed for having allowed as many as 2500 weapons to "walk" across the border and into the hands of the cartels.

As the NRA quickly pointed out, despite Obama and the media's clais that Mexico's firearms problems are America's fault, it has now been shown that many of Mexico's traced firearms originate in Central America and other countries.

And besides, if anti-gun extremists are to be believed, Calderon has single-handedly solved the problem of smuggling on the U.S.-Mexico border.

He put up a no-guns sign.

Again, from the article:

President Felipe Calderon on Thursday unveiled a "No More Weapons!" billboard made with crushed firearms and placed near the U.S. border. He urged the United States to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico.

The billboard, which is in English and weighs 3 tons, was placed near an international bridge in Ciudad Juarez and can be seen from the United States.

Calderon said the billboard's letters were made with weapons seized by local, state and federal authorities.

"Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we're suffering," Calderon said in English during the unveiling ceremony.

"The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico," he added.

If American gun ban extremists are to be believed, all one has to do to create a "gun-free zone" is to put up a sign. And so, we can officially declare that there is no longer a problem of gun smuggling on our southern border.

Well done Presidente Calderon!
