Mexico asks US for gun registry in all border states

While the debate on gun control rages in the United States, Mexico has taken steps to insert itself into the foray. Mexico’s lawmakers voted to ask the United States create a gun registry of all commercial firearms in the four states that border Mexico.

As if that weren’t enough, Mexico wants the U.S. government to share the registry’s data with it. The registry would provide locations of every gun in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

The request has many gun owners and Second Amendment advocates up in arms, especially since Mexican politicians and police are known for their corruption. According to Godfather Politics:

I worked with a guy who owned a bright yellow Ford 4×4 pickup.  One morning he woke up and his truck was gone.  Several weeks later, some friends of his found the truck in a small Mexican town about 50 miles south of the border.  As they observed the truck, they discovered that it was being driven by the town’s police chief.  A week later, my co-worker and several of his friends stole his truck back.  Living in a border state for over 35 years, I’ve heard and seen a number of examples of similar corruption in Mexican law enforcement and politics.

And now they want us to provide them with the complete gun registration list for every gun owner in the four border states?

With U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein recently calling for a massive gun control bill, it seems Mexico may think it has an ally. But chances are it will meet resistance on this side of the border.

    Go to hell Mexico and take back your criminals who broke into our country…

    With a porous border between us and Mexico, it makes perfect sense for the president of Mexico to require information from our socialist naked emperor regarding the assets of the northern state of Mexico (aka USA). WAKE UP AMERICA!

    Don't we wish G W Bush would have finished that farce of a fence he started ( the one that has had hundreds of tunnels under it some with AC and more holes cut in it than swiss cheese) . More criminals came across the southern border with Bush than any other president. Lord only knows how much damage they are doing. Barack Obama has had more deportations that Bush's administration. I am sure Rubio wants more illegals living off our social programs as well as taking American jobs under the table. Keep up the good work.

    The arrogance! Mexico maintains its own strict sovereignty, yet feels "entitled" to information about America citizens that I think even our government has no right to know. Tell them to blow it out their ear!

    I believe Mexico has an ace up their sleeve. Cyber attacks on the US have intensified and clandestine alliances are forming around the world. Much personal and corporate information has been stolen by China and our satellite systems have been compromised by China. I wouldn't be surprised if Mexico had some deal worked out with a nation hostile to the US thus knowing who had guns on our border states would be an advantage in the case of conventional warfare. Drug cartels run their government. Our forefathers warned us of letting our guard down and here we are walking into hell with both eyes open.

    I think that we need to require of Mexico exactly what they want from us. Beginning with immigration, guns, no WELFARE for anyone not legally here and those who have not paid taxes here. I think every Senator and or Congressman who voted for any illigals to recieve even Emergency room care orr anything that we didn't have a chance to vote on should immidiately be removed from office and lose any pensions, healthcare and anything that they recieve from their time in office. It is timme that not only the Senate, Congress but also The SOTUS and entire Executive branch with all the szars and The First Ladies entire staff except gor one person. No more whole family vacations paid for by us. Finally, require from Mexico what they want fromus and no aid until they comply first.

      Sounds good.

    Couldn't see the circumstances where a nation like Mexico, or any other, would ask for such a list. If they did, I couldn't see them getting anything other than, maybe, a diplomatic "kiss my a-s". Nicely said, of course. I also see there the Mexican Legislature has voted to ask for this data. They can ask for anything they want. It would never be given to them, unless its some sort of law enforcement information sharing, which is probably done everyday to apprehend bad guys. I wonder where the information on people is considered information on bad guys though.

    Gun owners on the border should form a militia of their own. Then they will be ready to attack Mexico if need be and overthrow the government. Mexico has been so outrageous with their comments and requests about immigration over the past year, and now their request about guns is like an act of war. None of our federal politicians have been chastising Mexico this past year and they won't say anything now either. Time for the citizens to become their own group and speak out.

      It is long overdue. I wouldn't be surprised if China and Russia demand a list of registered gun owners and our politicians give it to them. 10% approval rating for Congress. What do you expect?
