Yeah, I see no problem here...

...except for the guns wrapped in plastic. We all know that would never last because everybody who gets a new gun always takes it out of the box and runs around the house clearing rooms and pretending they're shooting at pictures on the wall or at household pets.

That launcher on the top left is a regulated item. It looks like a M320 or something similar.

It's a "Flare" launcher....:eek:

Close... :)

I'm also going to go out on a limb here and say that the one pictured IS a Flare launcher. In fact, I think it's the Havoc 37mm Flare luncher with a Kaos stock assembly made by Spikes also noted by Spikes signature wider slotted handgrip.

But the main give away is the M203 doesn't have a cocking lever on the side of the receiver like that.
The 40mm launcher is cocked by opening the bbl by a large camming lever up towards the left side of the launchers rail/forearm. Only the flare launcher design has a cocking lever for a striker as one pictured above and in the cartel pic.

Well, at least the current regime got what they wanted and that is proof that there are American guns in Mexico.

The "under the radar" thingy is looking more like fact than fiction.

So let me get this straight they smuggle thousands of guns to drug cartels in Mexico, and then start going after the legal Marijuana dispensaries in the US. If I didn't know better...

see, 75% of all guns recovered in Mexico can be traced back to the U.S. we need more gun control to stop this.

Holder probably set up some kind of dead man switch. If he goes, all the dirty little secrets about Obama get released. That would be a good thing so fire Holder now.

That were believed to be sold out of gun shops.
According to one captured cartel member they were buying guns directly from the US government too. If that's true, who knows how many more are floating around.

I think he knows the end is near, that's why the sudden trip to the Caribbean for 5 days. It takes a little time to get offshore bank accounts a new residence and diplomatic immunity set up.:43:


Holder's Caribbean Junket on Taxpayers' Dime

Just days after President Obama announced a new austerity program to save billions in federal spending and travel, his attorney general, Eric Holder, is spending five days on the taxpayer’s dime hopping around Caribbean islands in the name of improving law enforcement in the region.

...said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who recently tangled with Holder over a federal gun sting in which the government let weapons flow to Mexican drug cartels.
Gee, Issa is the one complaining about Holder being out of the country...what a surprise! :rolleyes:
(He's not having any luck nailing him on F&F, so he has to find something to ***** about!)

Looks like Holder more than paid for the trip with forfeited assets:

MIAMI -- The U.S. and Dominican Republic have signed an agreement to share millions of dollars in forfeited assets from a major Medicare fraud scheme.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday the two countries will share $7.5 million initially and could divide up to $30 million more in seized assets. The assets in the Dominican Republic include 20 real estate properties such as a water park, motel complexes and waterfront condominiums.

He did? Maybe I'm not reading that article right:

"The fraud case in Miami involves brothers Carlos, Luis and Jose Benitez. They are accused of conspiring to defraud Medicare out of $80 million."

Do you mean the $65 million US taxpayers will be in the hole if the best estimate $30 million is recovered, then split with the Dominicans? How is that "earning" anything?

No, Holder hasn't earned a free vacation. Except maybe a stay at a federally funded detention facility.

holder should be sentenced to walk point with a CA legal, BB equipped, AR on patrol with an army patrol in Afghanistan without body armor or Kevlar headgear for a full tour.

or would that show disrespect for our troops? :shrug:
