Guns in Mexico: 70 percent recovered from United States

Here's the direct link to the Sen. Dianne Feinstein et al report on U.S. gun flows to Mexico that details that at least 70 percent of weapons recovered from drug gangs in Mexico stem from north of the border.

Recommendations to the Obama administration, from the report's conclusion:

  • Enactment of legislation to close the gun show loophole;

  • Better enforcement of the existing ban on imports of military-style weapons;

  • Reinstatement of the expired Assault Weapons Ban;

  • Reporting by Federal Firearms Licensees on all multiple firearms sales; and

  • Senate ratification of the Inter-American Convention Against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking of Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives and Other Related Materials (CIFTA).

  • How very, very sensible.
