So here it is folks, THIS is the truth behind the parsing of words being used when putting forth such false accusations.

The TRUTH is that 90 percent of the Firearms which ATF has scanned/traced (Recovered from Cartel Crime Scenes) emanate from the United States, but this amount of 90 percent ONLY makes up 17 percent of the TOTAL firearms in the hands of Cartel Members.

Most of us on ATS know this 90% figure of weapons coming from U.S. is hogwash when it comes to percentage of weapons conficated from the Cartel. This again is nothing more then a ploy to confiscate weapons from citizens here in the U.S.

I met with a very reliable source whose business is to know, that the majority of the weapons are coming from South America and Central America and that is a fact. Do not let these politicians who want to control every aspect of your life tell you any different.

I posted this yesterday, Here and not as much response as I thought would come from this sort of news.

I find it odd that this type of information is taken so lightly.
