Kowtow much?

The US government has agreed to give access of trace data to Mexico:

US Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Mexican police who seized arms could use the system to notify the US who would then target the dealers.

    In theory you might scare a few arms traffickers here in the US into knocking it off…which in turn creates demand fueling a black market that makes it profitable for other arms dealers to simply source rifles elsewhere. You’ll start seeing more AKs than ARs floating around Mexico maybe, but the net result is the same.

    Why is this concept (the iron law of prohibitionism and the black market) so hard to understand?

    Like all of the sudden Mexican drug cartels will behave themselves if a couple of gun shops in the US (like that’s where they’re buying them in the first place) go out of business. Duh. It’s our fucking addiction problem they’re feeding.

    The hypocrisy is disgusting.

    Our sorry-ass government’s doing this with a country that wont extradite wanted murderers to the USA? I would ask WTF they’re thinking but it’s obvious that they aint, as usual.

    They are thinking. We just don’t know the particulars of their thoughts.

    I suspect they are thinking of the benefits of cooperation. Personal, under the table benefits, not reportable as income.

    Maybe Mexico should tighten up on the border crossings from THEIR side. WOW now that’s brilliant.
