I am watching America's Most wanted tonight and it is about the drug cartel violence in Mexico and how it is spilling into area like Phoenix, AZ.

John Walsh opened a segment firing a 50-cal fully auto machine gun, showing bullets going through both sides of a car door. He then went on to state that these weapons were being shipped form the US down to Mexico.

He then claimed AK47s were being shipped from the US down to Mexico, interspersed of course with showing full-auto AK47 fire, and claimed that you can get one of these for $600 and re-sell it for $1200+ in Mexico.

It is going on right now. They repeatedly claimed these weapons were being sold by gun stores in the 4 border states and massively being smuggled into Mexico.

He claimed that ATF was able to trace 8000 such weapons to just a few shady gun dealers in the US.

This show is on right now.

On tonight's show,

"Now, I'm a responsible gun owner, I hunt, I believe in the right to keep and bear arms, but we have to do something to shut down the pipline of guns to Mexico." -- John Walsh, America's Most Wanted, 16 May 2009.

The two segments they did on this was a total "Mexican drug cartels are getting auto weapons from the US" type yellow journalism. They even through in a "we must do it for the children" type line.

Yup... Watching AMW right now also. As soon as I saw John Walsh with the 50-cal, I exclaimed to Kyla, "Yup! Here we go! Let the B.S. begin." Was going to post about it, but you beat me to it. Not the first time AMW has painted guns in a bad light, either.

They always fail to mention the drug addicts that are supporting the cartels.

It was just such a blatant attempt to deceive, not even subtle or sphisticated at all. Really ticked me off.

That entire program went from dull to eventually irritating and then nauseating. Unbelievable (hopefully).

Walsh turned on the "John Wayne" gravely voice and all! Agree with you gents, this could have been a penetrating piece of journalism that exposes what's going on to the south of us; but what we got was just a piece of shat.

.....and claimed that you can get one of these for $600 and re-sell it for $1200+ in Mexico.....

Not anymore. More like $1200 here and $2000 in Mexico.

This is one thing we can actually do something about!
They give out an 800 number every episode, we can cross post on every gun board/forum and clog up their phone lines. Let them know we are watching and expect them to tell the truth.
Lets "aim" for two weeks from tonite, sat 5/15!
OK?
Lets cordinate, cross post in all the other forums and tall them we are sick of their lies, clog up their phones so they cant do anything but talk to angry gun owners.
We did this a number of years ago when Walsh spoke against CCW, this guy is a empty suit, he has terrible gun safety skills, whenever he handles one he covers everyone with the muzzle-they carefully edit lots out because he is a laughable chump.
Whats bad is I used to really like the show and the mission of the show, but he has become a mouth piece for the liars and we can use their 800 number against them.
Two weeks from tonight!
cross post in every forum! lets do it!

No it's true; you can buy full auto-ak's over the counter, Big 5 usually has 'em. Plus, these drug cartels that net hundreds of millions of dollars a year have no other options than to send flunkies to do straw man purchases of WASR's here, then take them to Mexico... seriously, who believes this crapola?

Bingo.

Walsh is a creation of the media itself.

He has no more authority to speak on crime issues than any other victim.

He's not a LEO, an attorney, or a criminologist.

AMW is a product, not an agency.

Where are the convictions?

If they've been able to trace them to shady gun dealers, then where are the convictions? This irritates me to no end that they spew this absolute BS because thew general public is to stupid to realize and think for their own. Unfortunately we live in a society that believes everything they see on TV, hell, MTV got Obama elected.

How about we build a fence along the border and control who crosses it...crazy F-ing idea. THen no drugs out, no guns n money in and no illegals coming in either. THere is a civil war going on and im sure some US bought guns end up there but I think the real issue is the porous border.
