Are they counting on Americans' short memories?

Sure seems that way...

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexico's ambassador to the United States says shutting down the flow of money and weapons from the U.S. into Mexico is key to dealing with the violent drug cartels in his country.

Nothing new here, more or less the same crap they've been pushing for the last few months...but on the other hand, Mr. Vanderboegh heard at the gun show that more than 100,000 ARs were on backorder from various manufacturers. To whatever extent that is true (and I wouldn't be surprised if they were low-balling it), anyone who's been trying to get a gun or ammunition knows both of those commodities are in pretty short supply and have been since Obama got elected. I'm sure you see where I'm going with this, but I'll let my friend James take it home:
So, even though there is a nation-wide shortage on evil ugly rifles and the ammo that feeds them, and the prices of same are through-the-f'ing-roof (especially compared to black market items that are readily available in South America),
The Mexican Cartels are buying them up in bulk.
Yeah. Right.
Now, about that bridge you were selling....

Yep, that's right. The mainstream media is trying to put it over on the American people that the Mexican drug cartels are fueling the Great Obama Gun Rush, once again choosing not to give the full story. That seems to be a recurring theme in various situations. Like somebody's got an agenda to push. Imagine that. I would hope enough Americans have the presence of mind to use their critical thinking skills to deconstruct this meme and see it for the foul and malicious lie it is, but given what 52 percent of American citizens voted for last November I am not too optimistic.
