Smuggling trade valued at $127M a year, study says
I find it interesting that the headline seems to blare out that they have hard
and fast facts saying the US is responsible for 253k guns in Mexico, but buried
in the article is the following:“The authors said they had
determined the likely traffic to Mexico by a complex statistical formula that
measured how close a federally licensed dealer was to the Mexican border, then
factored out likely local legal demand, based on population and
income.”So they don’t really have hard and fast facts,
but guestimated based on a complex statistical formula.Guestimates
do not constitute an "empirically robust" effort. Guestimates and complex models were involved in the credit default swaps and
mortgage derivatives that helped propel the barney frank induced housing bubble.
We are not going rely on those again, are we?
If Mexico is responsible for America's "drug" problem, then
America must be responsible for Mexico's "gun" problem.
This is just another "crisis" to help the gun-grabbers with thier grand
gun plan, I for one am grateful to live in a country (at least for now)that sees
gun ownership as a RIGHT not a priviledge, If you can't protect yourself or
your loved ones than what good are you!!!
How many of these guns were because of fast and furious? Contact Eric Holder, US
Justice Dept. for NO answers. Contact Barrack Obama for NO answers and an
executive order to cover it all up!
