The ease of U.S. Weapons being bought here and sent to the Drug Lords in Mexico just so the drug induced society here has it's much needed highs!!

Indictment: Son, mom sold guns to cartels

Pair are among 21 who face conspiracy charges.

March 1, 2011 - The guns Jose Lira wanted, that he would give to his mother to sell in Mexico, were "exclusively assault style 'AR 15' and 'AK 47' style firearms" the weapons preferred by the Mexican drug cartels, according to a federal affidavit.

Lira, 34, is a convicted felon and may not legally buy guns himself, so he paid family members, their friends and others to make the purchases from gun shows and gun shops across Central Texas in recent months, the affidavit said.

On Tuesday, a federal grand jury in Austin handed down an indictment charging 21 people — including Lira, his mother and some of the "straw purchasers" — with conspiracy to violate federal firearms laws and other crimes.

The indictment lists more than three dozen gun purchases that straw purchasers are accused of making for Lira at Central Texas stores in recent months. The stores include the Gun Store in Cedar Park, Heritage Firearms in Austin and Tactical Advantage Firearms in Round Rock. {continued}

Not at all surprised that the gun lovers, especially the NRA types and All those dues etc. monies going into lobbying efforts, are extremely mum on all this as this isn't new news, like everything they really should be doing they just ignored what these gun shops, gun shows etc. are really doing, after all they're in that clan!
