Obama parrots caught lying on Mexican guns

Obama’s socialist regime has faithfully followed the model of Rules for Radicals and Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 allegories of the Stalinist Soviet Union. Lying is a way of life for these people. The mainstream media routinely gives them a pass, but not lovers of liberty and the truth.

FoxNews recounts the situation well in The Myth of 90%: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From the U.S. (HT: Michelle Malkin). Bottom line is that rabid 2nd Amendment haters Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator Feinstein, William Hoover of BATF, with lap dog repetition by liberal CBS, all said that 90% of weapons used in crimes in Mexico came from the U.S. Ouch! Only one problem – it’s a lie.

As FoxNews points out, at most about 17% of guns used in Mexican crimes came from the U.S. I’ll go further and posit that most of those were issued to corrupt Mexican police or army personnel by the U.S. government. After all, why would Mexican criminals waste money buying expensive, non-combat firearms in the U.S. when the U.S. government will give them to you for free? Or when you can get automatic weapons (i.e., REAL assault weapons) and grenades on the black market. Fox talked to a retired border agent:

Some guns, he said, “are legitimately shipped to the government of Mexico, by Colt, for example, in the United States. They are approved by the U.S. government for use by the Mexican military service. The guns end up in Mexico that way — the fully auto versions — they are not smuggled in across the river.”

Many of the fully automatic weapons that have been seized in Mexico cannot be found in the U.S., but they are not uncommon in the Third World.

The Fox article goes on to point out that Mexico’s problems come not only from official corruption at all levels of their government, but also from rampant smuggling across their border with Guatemala and by sea. There’s a lot of jungle and coastline there to give cover and opportunities to arms smugglers. The black market and Russian mafia are making a fortune in Mexico with weapons from around the world.

These socialist politicians and their apologist hate our civil right under the 2nd Amendment. They’ll put out any lie they think that they can pass off that tried to deprive us of our liberty under the Constitution. They are routinely caught, but few pay attention. History teaches us that liberty, once lost, can rarely be regained peacefully.

Lying is a way of life for socialist radicals. Expect it. Don’t believe them. If they can take away the 2nd Amendment, the rest will be next. Remember the lessons of the past.



  1. […] Obama unashamedly perpetuates his Mexican gun lies I saw Obama’s remarks in Mexico where he repeated the lie that 90% of recovered guns in Mexico came from the U.S. Not only did he lie, he later stood by the lie. I already posted on the data in Obama parrots caught lying on Mexican guns. […]
