If this is true, hopefully more "reliable" sources will come out with the story.

I'm just so confused as to who is running this country. Mexico is now asking for a registry on US citizens who own guns on the border states??

Mexico demanded that the US take in and provide for Mexican illegals, demanded they have the right to US citizenship, which our government caved into, they want to refuse the return of dangerous criminal illegals (murderers, rapists, pedos) being returned by the US, they treat illegals caught going through Mexico into the US like rubbish and jail them. It's not enough that our government bends to their demands and the US has built their economy, now this??

If Mexico wants to stop the gun running from the US to Mexico, start wtih the smugglers. Protect their own borders, find the tunnels and arrest those running them into Mexico. Mexico has done nothing to stop people from entering the US illegally and less to stop drugs from entering into the US. If they declared a war on the drug cartels they wouldn't have to worry about guns seeing as how the cartels are the only ones with guns. They know the people who run the cartels, they know who are involved in the cartels, they know where to find these people, but it seems these people are invisible and can't be stopped, but American citizens who are gun owners and abide by US law are a threat to Mexico.

A lot of people on both sides of the border commit crimes on one side and live on the other. That part is true, I've known many when I lived in San Diego-Tijuana and El Paso-Juarez.

That being said, we should burn our own registry and definitely not give it to anyone else.

Demand whatever you want from me, it doesn't mean that I am obligated to give it to you.

Not a bad idea considering it is our demand for the drugs that is causing the mess.

Personally I'm more in favor of legalizing certain drugs and spending the money on treatment. It's pretty embarrassing our incarceration rate is so high.

I'm glad we both understand that point.

"Mexico's Congress voted to formally ask the United States Senate to create a registry of all commercialized firearms in the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Although the motion will have little impact in the US, it shows the gun control issue continues to resonate on both sides of the border.

The measure was approved January 9 by Mexico's Permanent Commission, the government body that meets when the Senate and the lower house of Congress, the Chamber of Deputies, is in recess."

Maybe Mexico will write some gun control legislation while they're at it and hand it to Congress and ask them to pass it.
Afterall, Mexico's gun problem is our fault, all our fault (because our government is sending so many guns south of the Border).
