A new congressionally commissioned report has some interesting statistics on the weapons fueling Mexico's ever-bloodier drug war, including this: 70 percent of the firearms recovered in Mexico originated in the United States. Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Charles Schumer (D-NY), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) are behind the report.
"Originated" doesn't mean they were all made here, many of them were made elsewhere and just had middlemen here. Way to go, Merchants of Death. That's quite an industry you've got there.
