Mexican Drug Cartels Celebrate Gun ControlSubmitted by rocketman on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 22:46

The best way to depict what's going on in America is through a letter from the head of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, to President Obama.
In case people are ready to assume this letter is real, it isn't, but the spirit of it is very true and very real:
Dear President Obama,
Let me begin by saying that you can count on us to support your efforts in disarming American citizens in any way we can.
The Fast and Furious operation backfired a bit in this regard, but I'm glad to see it hasn't stopped you.
As you know, we are making inroads on US soil. We've set up significant operations in the Southwest, one area where armed citizens can be a bit of trouble to us, especially if they own land we cross or are adjacent to.
We view their disarming with a positive attitude. I would say your basic gun-grabbing strategy is primarily aimed at the American West. The border states need to be cleaned out. The fewer people there who have guns (particularly those with high-capacity clips), the easier it is for us.
But since our drug trafficking lines take in most of America, wherever citizens aren't armed we're generally in better shape.
I'm pleasantly surprised that media in your country haven't pressed you to name the areas where most gun violence is taking place. After all, if your objective is to reduce that violence, you would think a campaign directed at gangs in inner cities would rank number one on your to-do list.
Those areas and those gangs do subcontracting work for us (and other Mexican cartels). Leaving them in place is a priority for us. So congratulations on being able to skirt this tricky issue. Your cojones are, indeed, huge.
Please pass along my thanks to Brian Williams, Scott Pelley, and Diane Sawyer. I assume they are in your pocket and carrying your message. Undoubtedly, they are also refraining from bringing up the gang issue. Whenever I speak with the president of Mexico, I point out your masterly and deft control of media as a model we should emulate.
