PHOENIX—The arrest of a gun shop owner on Tuesday broke up a suspected firearms trafficking operation that supplied violent Mexican drug cartels, authorities said.

Agents raided X Calibur Guns and arrested George Iknadosian after undercover agents bought guns at the store indicating they were to be trafficked to Mexico, said Carlos Baixauli, a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Iknadosian, 46, knowingly sold at least 650 firearms, including high-end semiautomatic pistols and assault-style rifles, to drug cartels, the ATF said.

Trailero, at Mexico Trucker Online, has the only possible response:

And the looney toons of the right will decry this arrest and whine about Second Amendment rights while they are demanding a border fence to keep out all of the illegals and the violence spilling over into the United States, while refusing to acknowledge, that in many cases, the cause of the problems in Mexico can be found right here at home! Imagine that!
