Mexican Ambassador Slams 2nd Amendment

In a slap at gun-rights advocates, the Mexican ambassador to the U.S. dismissed accusations that Mexico is seeking to undermine the Second Amendment in order to curb the influx of U.S.-purchased guns.

“There is an ‘urban myth’ out there that somehow the Mexican government is seeking to lobby against and destroy the rights enshrined in the Second Amendment,” said Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan. “This is gobbledygook.”

Speaking at a forum on Capitol Hill, Sarukhan said “the Founding Fathers did not draft the Second Amendment to” permit surrogates – straw purchasers – to buy military-style weapons in Texas, California and other border states and ship them to violent Mexican drug cartels.

Drug violence has claimed the lives of 50,000 Mexicans since 2006 and Mexican officials have cited border-state gun sales as a chief source of cartel weaponry.-[source]
