“Existing laws are so weak that even one of the most notorious dealer supplying the cartels, the owner of X-Caliber gun shop in Phoenix that allegedly supplied 700 guns to Mexican drug gangs, had all criminal charges brought against him dismissed recently. As the X-Caliber case shows, ‘enforcing the laws on the books’ will never be enough: we need stronger laws, and strong enforcement of those laws.”
Get that? He's 'notorious' because of those 'over 700 guns' he 'allegedly' sold, the prosecutors could not find a single one that was sold illegally in any way.
Since the shop retains all those records, one would think that the BATFE would be able to find some sort of pattern in the people he sold them to and would bring them to trial and in some instances they have. But pursuing that line of thinking wouldn't promote more restrictions on firearm owners so the Brady's want nothing to do w/ it. Much better to enact more laws that have been proven to have no effect on actual criminals.
