Another problem is that most of the weapons used by the traffickers come from the United States. Typically, the drug smugglers have much more firepower than local police departments, and sometimes can even outgun the federal police and the Army with high-caliber machine-guns and grenade launchers.
So the Mexican Gov't continues to claim that you can buy machine guns and grenade launchers at your local gun show.
Or is it more likely that the Cartels are getting them from corrupt Mexican officials and from smugglers heading north?
Hmm. Let me think.
