ABC News lies about guns – again
ABC was busted before lying about the impact of the assault weapons ban. ABC news even moderating blog comments that corrected the errors. Well, they’re lying again and the video is here.
Today, Ross and accomplice Richard Esposito continue that fine ABC News tradition of making up the news, in a story claiming that the U.S. Second Amendment is to blame for Mexico’s drug cartel problems.

Yes, according to ABC news you can walk into a gun show and buy all kinds of weapons that are heavily regulated (i.e., no one will sell them to you without the extensive NFA process) and walk those machine guns and short barreled rifles right across the border.
Update: And a suggestion for Mexico: Maybe seal your northern border? Like you did your southern one. That’d keep your drugs out and our guns in.
In other news, Les started using unpossible before I did.
Update: Still more at Stop the ACLU.
