They aren't worried about cartels getting US weapons and using them. They are worried about US citizens taking up arms against the cartels themselves. Their SOP if a cartel took over a town completely would be as follows:
Citizens please stay indoors, do not engage. Troops will be there in a week or two. Until then just give them whatever they want. It's for your own safety. Blah blah blah...

Maybe the cartels have their own gun making factories. Its really not that impossible if you consider the insane amounts of money that the cartels have. What's stopping them from just setting up shop and making some of the most badass weapons on the planet? They have the money, and if anyone tries to stop them, I think we both know what happens to them.
