Five plus years into his six year term, President Felipe Calderon, really, really, really means it this time. According to Mileno, Calderón expressed his outrage at the deaths caused by illicit weapons sales and is now asking the Obama administration to stop the “inhumane weapons trafficking into our country.”

At the same time, during his visit in Ciudad Juarez, Calderon also thanked the U.S. President’s for his police meant to reduce assault weapons sales, but said it was “somewhat inadequate.”

The Mexican President has requested that the the U.S. administration and congress do something to reduce drug use in their own country and stop financing Mexican cartels.

Think they’ll listen?

    Hell, Canada is just bracing for a new onslaught now that the SupposiTories have killed the long-gun registry. I wish Mexico all the luck in the world, but until Washington starts regulating the gun industry, I wouldn’t hold my breath.

      Maybe Mexican and Canada could coordinate drone strikes on U.S. gun dealers.
