You mean those guns don’t come from Wal-Mart?!

Wikileaks strikes again! Howard Nemerov writes at The PJ Tatler that the U.S. admits that Mexican cartels get military weaponry from Central America

Why would cartels spend over $1,000–plus a background check and smuggling risks–for a decent American semi-automatic rifle, when they can buy 4-5 fully automatic AK-47s for the same price on the black market?

The “Iron River of guns” myth makes the assumption that Mexican drug lords can’t do math. One wonders, however, about the math skills of the average ATF supervisor.
