The Iron Trickle: changing U.S. gun laws won't disarm Mexican drug cartels

The drug kingpins are billionaires, and international smuggling is what they do. As black marketeers, they thrive on prohibition, be it prohibition of drugs, or of weapons, their livelihood is based on moving products that can't be moved openly or legally.

Such people will not be thwarted by more prohibition. [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. I really don't mean for the column to be "All Mexico, all the time," but Mexico's drug violence seems to be the thrust of the other side's "argument" (such as it is) for new, draconian gun laws here, and it has to be countered. Please give it a look.
