At a press conference announcing the arrests, Holder also suggested that re-instituting a U.S. ban on the sale of assault weapons would help reduce the bloodshed in Mexico, where last year 6,000 people were killed in drug-related violence.

U.S. officials have a responsibility to make sure Mexican police "are not fighting substantial numbers of weapons, or fighting against AK-47's or other similar kinds of weapons that have been flowing to Mexico," Holder said.
Maybe it's a double-secret underhand twin-spoiler extra-cheese economic stimulus, designed to promote consumer confidence through firearms sales!

The head of the NRA should make a single statement before Congress: "raise your hand if you actually believe that this will harm drug cartels that are so rich they have coopted Mexican Army units, and have some of the richest profit margins in all of the Americas."

The Obama administration seems to have a collective case of "foot-in-mouth" disease. Unfortunately, their Kool-Aid is second to none, and they have license for a while yet to push whatever pleases them for a Keynesian-multiplier on hope-change.

The best part about flying pigs: imagine, if you will, bacon... and Buffalo wings.

Thanks for the tax links there, Oct3, and welcome.
