Those Damned American Gun Shows (Again)

I mean really, you'd think I'd be lucky enough to head on down to the gun store and get an anti-aircraft gun.

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has traced many guns seized at scenes of drug violence in Mexico to U.S. commercial sources. But determining the source of military-grade weapons such as grenades and fully automatic machine guns is more complicated.

The ATF says the grenades are mostly smuggled in through Central America, and have been traced back to the militaries of many countries, from South Korea to Spain and Israel. Some may be leftovers from the Central American civil wars.

Just another one of those 90%, err...95%, I mean...99%? of guns that come from the U.S.
