The Mexican government on Wednesday sued several U.S. gun manufacturers, alleging that they contribute to illegal gun trafficking to Mexico. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. federal court in Boston. Among the defendants named in the suit are Smith & Wesson, Barrett Firearms, Beretta U.S.A. and Colt’s Manufacturing Company. The companies did not immediately respond to CNBC’s requests for comment. The gun manufacturers are accused of negligent business practices that facilitate smuggling guns to Mexico and cause “massive damage” to the country. The lawsuit alleges that they knowingly supply the criminal gun market in Mexico in particular, saying the companies’ military-style guns often

I've got an idea. Why don't THEY close the border so the guns can't be smuggled in?

Most criminals in Mexico get their guns from the Mexican armed forces and the BATF, not through gun dealers!

For every illegal invader coming through Mexico to America that commits a crime, no matter if they are Mexican or not , Mexico should be sued to the max.

I don't believe Mexican drug dealers are shopping in American gun stores paying retail for those manufacture's products neither are the street criminals in democrat cities. All their weaponry is obtained illegally from sources who steal them. If the Mexicans who are packing automatic weapons and explosives trust me we are not the source blame the corrupt Mexican military for that.

FTA: An estimated half million guns are smuggled from the U.S. into Mexico each year, and the defendants produce over 68% of them, the lawsuit said. The numbers above are surely lies. Stats cited by Hillary and the Obama administration that 90 percent of the guns found at Mexican crime scenes were traced to USA was a tremendous lie told on run up to Fast and Furious gun smuggling operation. An analysis done in part by Fox News said 90 percent was false. The truth was Mexico released partial information, and that many guns recovered at Mexican crime scenes were untraceable and, therefore, were not American guns. The Fox study concluded approximately 36 percent of the guns were manufactured in USA. This is a bogus lawsuit. Can we rule out cooperation with Mexico in this suit from corrupt United States federal authorities?

The people who are smuggling guns into Mexico from the USA are all Mexicans, who know who they can payoff in the Mexican spirit of “the bite” also known in Spanish as “la mordida”, so they can sell their contraband guns in Mexico to criminal elements without becoming in tangled with corrupt Mexican police and other authorities.

One of the most fascinating questions about WW2 concerns when the Nazis realized they had lost the war. Some say the generals knew early as December 1941, when Operation Barbarossa was stopped before Moscow, that the great throw of the dice had failed. Others say civilian leaders came to it in 1942 when Case Blue failed to secure the oil they needed to fight on in the East. But most certainly the public moment had come by February 1943, when Joseph Goebbels delivered his famous “Total War” speech admitting that, far from attaining victory, the Reich would be very lucky to survive without a mobilization on a Communist scale.

NEW YORK CITY—Just as New York City restaurateurs thought they would perhaps see their way out of crushing COVID-19 restrictions and back to “normalcy,” the city’s government dealt out another blow: Restaurants will now have to check customers for proof of vaccination, or themselves face fines. In response, restaurant owners seem to have flocked to one of two positions. Some support the rule as long as it prevents more lockdowns, while others reject it as an unreasonable imposition on their already vulnerable operations. Restaurants have been among the hardest hit by the lockdown imposed in response to the pandemic of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19. New York City
