Today, we have learned that Mexico is currently suing the United States, alleging that American firearms manufacturers and retailers are responsible for Mexico’s shocking crime and murder statistics.
Interestingly, the Mexican government’s best case against America isn’t against U.S. gun dealers at all; it’s with “Operation Fast and Furious,” the Obama administration’s bungled attempt to “trace crime guns.” That campaign, which did deliberately release firearms to illegal foreign buyers, was the brainchild of Obama’s Department of Justice. But this particular lawsuit instead seeks to blame law-abiding citizens and companies for the basket case that is Mexico’s law enforcement. Below we have a notice from the National Shooting Sports Foundation that spells out exactly what’s happening … and why.NSSF, the firearm industry trade association, rejects Mexico’s allegations that U.S. firearm manufacturers participated in negligent business practices. All firearms sold at retail within the United States are sold in accordance with federal and state laws, with an FBI background check and forms completed. Allegations of wholesale cross-border gun trafficking are patently and demonstrably false.
“These allegations are baseless. The Mexican government is responsible for the rampant crime and corruption within their own borders,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Mexico’s criminal activity is a direct result of the illicit drug trade, human trafficking and organized crime cartels that plague Mexico’s citizens. It is these cartels that criminally misuse firearms illegally imported into Mexico or stolen from the Mexican military and law enforcement. Rather than seeking to scapegoat law-abiding American businesses, Mexican authorities must focus their efforts on bringing the cartels to justice. The Mexican government, which receives considerable aid from U.S. taxpayers, is solely responsible for enforcing its laws – including the country’s strict gun control laws – within their own borders.
