Delegate Says Mexico Should be Angry at Obama for Not Implementing Gun Control
The myth that 90% of the guns used in Mexican drug violence come from the United States has been exposed yet the anti-gun crowd continues to promote this lie. In reality only 17% of the guns recovered have been traced back to the United States, that is almost 180% from the lie that is being touted.
Here we have another example of someone claiming that the United States is responsible for criminals activity in Mexico.
D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) told members of the Obama administration that the United States is responsible for arming Mexican drug cartels and she was embarrassed that Mexico is not angry about it.
The United State is responsible for arming the drug cartels? Evidently the facts mean nothing to this woman. Here is what she said:
“It’s extremely embarrassing that Mexico has been as kind to us,” Norton said Thursday at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “I would have been very, very angry at the Big Kahuna in the north that was essentially shipping down arms to kill my people.”
She is claiming that President Obama (the Big Kahuna) is basically shipping guns to Mexico and killing Mexicans because he has not clamped down on gun laws. She is embarrassed that Mexico is being so nice to us in spite of Obama’s de facto killing spree in Mexico?
This is extremely offensive even to someone like me who has an extreme disdain for the president. Instead of blaming the Mexican drug lords and all of the other criminals involved she is deflecting the blame onto the president to further her ultimate goal.
It isn’t hard to see what the end game is when you read the following comment:
“I suppose it would be easier to control them if we did what the Clinton administration did and ban semi-automatic weapons,” Quigley said. “It’s a lot easier to control them if they are not being sold.”
