The Confederate Yankee (http://confederateyankee.mu.nu/) is reporting that FBI agent John T. Shipley has been arrested in Dallas for illegally selling 51 firearms at a handsome profit, all of which wound up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

Among the items were 3 Barret M82s, "several" Remington 700s in .308, and 2 DPMS LR-308 rifles.

It's funny that a story about a rogue FBI agent selling guns to Mexican drug dealers has somehow escaped the media's notice.

That's because the story doesn't criminalize ALL gun owners.

Wait, the Mexican cartels are now hiring equipping snipers? Sucks to be a Mexican cop or an FBI agent in that guys office. I bet they are going to be crawling all over everyone who works with him. Even Special Agent Mother Teresa.

I also saw an article about a small time cargo pilot that was stealing guns from cargo and selling them to Mexican drug runners.

There's no internet link that I can find.. the article was in a tiny newspaper that is only distributed at the DFW airport. Seems the guy was making off with quite a few handguns, AR parts, etc.

What the clueless libs don't (or won't) understand is that if suddenly we walled off the Southern border... Mexican drug gangs would still get their guns. Where? From the countries just to the south.... or China. China has had no qualms about selling firearms to militias in Africa.

Hrm.. they want to stem the flow of guns.. hey, let's wall off that southern border! Wait, nooo.. that might prevent an illegal from getting in. ;)

The cartels are already getting most of their weapons South, and East. It is no surprise, nor is it news how the cartels are getting the arms, the news here, and the hype, all designed to follow a pattern of gun control here in America.

I agree, notice how it's OK to try and make law based on hype, to stop a product going south but, we cannot make meaningful steps to stop the human traffic flowing north, based on truth.
