“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

“I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.” Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.

  1. And when, exactly did Mexico’s law enforcement issues become an issue that the US Attorney General was responsible for? The .Gov’s own records showed no benefit from the AWB, nor any uptick in crime once it expired.

  2. They aren’t except as they affect the US. Holder’s an idiot. You can’t buy grenades in the US except with a DOD (or is it Commerce) export license to specific receivers.

    The Mexican drug-lords are getting their weapons most from the Mexican Army.
