Quote of the Day

Miguel notices that there’s a program in Mexico to melt down firearms and turn them into shovels:

This shovels will more likely be used to continuing piling the bullshit regarding US guns into Mexico and digging graves for those who are dying in the local Drug Wars.

They are going to need a lot more shovels to continue piling that much BS. Does anyone think the cartels are going to turn in their guns?

    Exactly the opposite of what they should be doing. Part of the reason for the rampant lawlessness and impunity with which the cartels operate in Mexico is that law-abiding Mexicans are essentially barred from owning firearms. It’s hard to stand up to military-trained, amoral, and heavily armed killers like the Zetas with pitchforks, or shovels, as the case may be.

  2. Hmm…

    Well, clearly, they’re in dire need for more tunnels under the border. Hence, conversion of their surplus of firearms to shovels.
