Obama blames American guns for Mexican deaths: ‘Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States’
Obama also did not mention the more than 2,000 firearms that his Department of Justice ‘walked’ across the Mexican border as part of Operation Fast and Furious, a federal law enforcement project that aimed to track weapons to drug traffickers. Those guns have been connected to the deaths of at least 300 Mexican citizens. And U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry died in December 2010 when a so-called ‘Fast and Furious gun’ was recovered at the scene of his murder during a routine patrol in Arizona.
A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment about whether President Obama was referring to Fast and Furious weapons in his speech.

Wasn't it Eric Holder that gave the Mexicans the guns in the 1st place?
Obama should direct his anger toward those responsible.
