Border Governors Call for Curbs on Guns to Mexico

A joint meeting of the U.S. and Mexican border governors met in Los Angeles. The Mexicans spoke desperately about the flow of guns from the U.S. to drug cartels in their states, feeding a vicious drug war. (See blog for August 10, 2008.) Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said his department is on the case and assured the governors that it will make greater efforts to infiltrate the smuggling organizations for better intelligence. Not mentioned is any curbs on gun dealers and gun shows in the U.S. Perhaps Homeland Security should also infiltrate the NRA. (See NY Times aticle,)
