More Mexican guns that didn’t come from the US

Mexican police uncovered a basement full of military weapons in Ciudad Juarez (Just across the US-Mexico border from El Paso, TX). The stash, as reported by The Washington Post, doesn’t sound like items one can pick up at the local Wal-Mart or an American gun show…

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Mexican federal police said Saturday they discovered a basement arsenal hidden behind the mirrors of a home gym that included three anti-aircraft guns, dozens of grenades, a grenade launcher, AK-47s and other high-powered weapons.

The neatly ordered stockpile found in an upscale neighborhood in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, also contained several makes of machine guns, rifles, a shotgun and more than 26,000 ammunition cartridges, according to Raul Avila Ibarra, the federal police commissioner in charge of the city.

Curiously, Mexican officials declined to speculate on the origin of the weapons. A number of gas mask, armor vests, and military uniforms were also seized. Care to venture a guess as to where those items came from?
