Several Quick Points and Some Housecleaning

Mosin - Nagant 1891 Infantry
Imperial Russian Army
El Gringo Viejo wants to call attention to the right sidebar that now is headed by El Zorro's website and blog linkage.   You can enter a wonderland of firearms and 2nd Amendment matters, in an understandable and easily navigated setting.  We prepare to enter the 7th decade in a few years, becoming evermore the curmudgeon.  Among those curmudgeonly characteristics is the wisdom of knowing how to play at least one instrument well.

     Another is knowing how to catch, clean, and prepare a fish for human consumption. A third is having, caring for, and knowing how to use at the very least (obviously) one effective firearm....for private and personal defense.   It is my intention to dial 911, not for the police to arrive to help me, but to advise the CSI and the Coroner's Office to come and bring the meat wagon.   There is no rush.
       Review the site Mosin Guy Guns and read about "The Encounter", and the overtones and complexities of moral inputs, training, conditioning, and the realities of what can happen from one second to the next.    And having the emergency number of the 101st Airborne Division would have no impact because they could never arrive in time to help.   One can also wonder, with all the millions upon scores of millions firearms that are held by NRA, collector, self-defense, self-reliance, hunters, and sportsmen very few transgressions and accidents occur among those people.   Too be sure....but way, way, way below the actuarials for simple household accidents like falling off'n a ladder.
      It is a fact that 99% of all firearms casualties are caused by criminals;   the kind of people who have no catechism and no intention of abiding by any firearms laws.   The slaughter of humanity by firearms in the United States of America its overwhelming majority, and in these days....a gang, pandilla, inner-urban, cultural rot problem.
      And, yes, Virginia...I mean the gaggle-toothed, pallid, rashy-skinned, scrawny, wasted, aged 28 going on 70 white-patty,  too.   The one using, making, and selling methamphetamines.   Yes, that guy over there who is 6 feet tall and who weighs 125 pounds.

"Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States," President Obama said during a speech at Mexico's Anthropology Museum. "I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will."

"But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do," Obama added.

One of the veritable wonders of Mexico.   The National
Anthropology Museum.  900,000 square feet of display
and 2,000,000 visitors/annum.   Totally impressive and
and worth the half or whole day for a good introduction.
     Now, although Rush droned on...kicking sleeping dogs  after Barak Hussein Obama's stupid, vapid, Tommin' speech to the "Mexican College Students who wear Che Guevara T-shirts" gathered at the Museo Nacional de Antropologia in Mexico City....he apparently did follow up on concise and detailed emails (2) that were sent to his attention by El Gringo Viejo.    With well deserved humility, it is certain that Rush (and others who repeated the Obsolete Press 'common knowledge' misinformation) received several hundred concise and precise emails with evidence and certain knowledge from other AAA minor league bloggers and Mexicophiles....proving to his satisfaction that the overwhelming majority of the armaments that are moved into Mexico for and by the drug cartels, came from eastern European and Red Chinese sources.  As we have stated many times the last handlers were known to be Cuban, Venezuelan military, FARC, and brokers in Nicaragua for such weapons that arrived on the south and east sides of Mexico.   The deliveries on the west coast came principally from Red Chinese freighters....which have been repeatedly found to be carrying ingredients for making methamphetamines, and containers full of knock-off AR-16s and AK-47s, round hand grenades (WWII vintage and Warsaw Pact, usually).
     FOR BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA TO BE LECTURING ABOUT AMERICAN ''RESPONSIBILITY' FOR THE SUPPLY OF FIREARMS TO THE CARTELS IS THE HEIGHT OF HYPOCRISY.  OBAMA, ERIC HOLDER, AND A NUMBER OF, let us say "personalities" in the ATF and E, conspired to transfer firearms from established firearms dealers, especially in Arizona.
    They then allowed....specifically directed .... the firearms into the hands of known operatives of various Mexican Cartels.  Unlike the Bush-era Wide Receiver project, the firearms used in Fast and Furious DID NOT HAVE CHIPS AND TRACKING DEVICES OF ANY KIND.
      The old Mexican press saw about all the American guns in circulation 2010....became a reality in certain parts of Mexico, especially the far northwest.   But, repeated efforts to bring this to the attention of anyone who would respond to the problem fell on deaf eyes and blind ears.   During all this time, and even up to these days, the count of dead and wounded innocents grew.   Those killed and/or wounded by weapons involved in Fast and Furious number to slightly less than 500 innocents.  By innocents we mean men, women, and children caught in a crossfire in senseless shootouts between contending cartels or during Military vs. Cartel confrontations.  By innocents we mean soldiers and naval infantrymen killed and wounded in combat with cartel elements.  By innocents we mean honest to mostly honest cops killed and wounded while standing their ground against the vermin.
     The attempt to "frame" the firearms business by Obama, Holder, and the ATF failed...but at horrible cost.  But, no sweat for them, because they, like all democrat Marxist hypocrites don't give a damn about Mexicans anyway.   They just serve for cannon fodder and demagoguery.
     And like the fallen at Benghazi, according to the White House, "....that was a long time ago".   According to Obama's executive branch ".....what difference does it make, now?"  and according to Eric Holder, "....we are investigating this and we have turned over all relevant documentation to the appropriate committee."  Liar, liar, pants on fiar.
Most of the housecleaning is done now.  Back to my somnambulant state.
