The War on U.S. Guns

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 15-08-2012 21:02 | Category: Violence, Peace & Conflicts



Over the last 5 to 6 years, over 60,000 people have lost their lives in Mexico’s drug-related wave of violence. More than 70% of the weapons seized in Mexico in the last three years and submitted for tracing came from the U.S. (Source: ATF)
Cuéntame, a place for Latinos and the public in general, is campaign about this Gunwar.
They ask the public to sign a petition for President Obama because he has the power to help stop gun smugglers:

- Enforce the existing ban on the importation of military-style assault weapons (because many of them are later illegally smuggled into Mexico);
- Require gun dealers to report to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) the sale of multiple assault rifles to the same person over a period of five days;
- Strengthen legal enforcement in regions of the U.S. that supply the bulk of the contraband weapons smuggled into Mexico.
