Mexico Unveils ‘No More Weapons!’ Sign Made Of Firearms Along US Border

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — President Felipe Calderon on Thursday unveiled a “No More Weapons!” billboard made with crushed firearms and placed near the U.S. border. He urged the United States to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico.

The billboard, which is in English and weighs 3 tons, was placed near an international bridge in Ciudad Juarez and can be seen from the United States.

Calderon said the billboard’s letters were made with weapons seized by local, state and federal authorities.

“Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering,” Calderon said in English during the unveiling ceremony.

“The best way to do this is to stop the flow of automatic weapons into Mexico,” he added.

Before unveiling the billboard, Calderon supervised the destruction of more than 7,500 automatic rifles and handguns at a military base in Ciudad Juarez.

Calderon said more than 140,000 weapons have been seized since December 2006, when he launched a crackdown against drug traffickers. More than 47,500 people have been killed since then.

One of the cities most affected by the violence is Ciudad Juarez, where more than 9,000 have died in drug violence since 2008.

Also Thursday, the country’s Attorney General said a federal prosecutor assigned to a northern state has been detained on suspicion of protecting the brutal Zetas drug cartel.

Attorney General Marisela Morales said federal prosecutor Claudia Gonzalez has been sent to prison. She didn’t say when Gonzalez was detained or give any other details.

Gonzalez was based in the city of Saltillo, capital of the border state of Coahuila.

The state on the border with Texas has seen a spike of violence as the Zetas and the Sinaloa drug cartel fight for control of drug smuggling routes into the United States.

    A simple letter to the President and Mr. Holder would be more effecrive.

    1. Thought Recon says:

      Lol! Yeah, by the time they read that sign, they have 2 or 3 of Holders Weapons slung over their shoulders and the point is moot. The sign should read…”NO MORE WEAPONS MR. HOLDER!”

      1. charles chapman says:

        Of course if WE had “no more weapon”s the Mexican army could run drugs across the border with less risk of am “incident”.

      2. Al says:

        They specifically mentioned “automatic weapons” Well, they didn’t come from the US. Since the NFA in the late 1930’s, these weapons have been highly controlled. Pres. Reagan, in 1986, made them even harder to get.

      3. Mr. Dude says:

        So… Mexico has a big problem with corruption and violence. …and it’s our fault, how?

        Okay. Let’s assume we didn’t have the second amendment here. Are Mexico and the anti gun lobby honestly telling us that the cartels, with billions of dollars in resources, wouldn’t be able to import weapons from elsewhere? How many AK-47s do you suppose they already get from Russia and the rest of South America? Are they honestly telling us that these thugs would just throw up their hands and give up? “Oh no! We don’t have any guns! We’ll just have to stop.” What about all of the other, gruesome ways they kill people?

        Calderon must really think we’re a bunch of suckers.

      4. illuminati says:

        Mr. Dude – It is completely our fault regardless of where the weapons come from. The entire battle is fueled by drug revenue generated by demand in the US. Stop the war on drugs and the money will dry up and the cartels will have nothing to fight over. Simple solution.

      5. Anti-Derek says:

        Oh just die Illuminati.

      6. Brent says:

        illuminati….. how exactly would the money dry up if the war on drugs was stopped? Doing such would make the job of the cartels a LOT easier…

      7. That one guy says:

        The US spends billions of dollars every year on the war on drugs, a war that we’re losing. The majority of drugs that are smuggled into the US from Mexico is marijuana. Now if you had any idea of economics you would know that supply is driven by demand and that the more demand there is and the less supply there is, the more money can be charged. If I could walk into a head shop and buy an eighth of weed with a government tax stamp any time day or night, the drug dealers will cease to exist. Why? Because illicit products are always very expensive, see booze prices during prohibition. If I can go to weeds r us and pay $10 bucks for an eighth of weed, I’m not going to go to shady joe and pay twice that. When the dealers run out of customers, they start looking for real jobs.

      8. Mileaway says:

        @That One Guy, why do pot smokers think if the gov opens up shop that will end anything? Do you really think the Cartels are going to say; “Oh well, I guess we’re out of business!” What kind of idiotic statement is that? Let’s see; Uncle Sam’s pot @ $10, Jose Cartel’s pot $5. Not to mention they will still kill each other and others for the same reasons they are now. Get real! We need to satellite surveil, Drone the border, auto fire towers, land mine like Korea and watch them go up in a cloud of dust or stay home!
        If Mexico and the USA really wanted to stop the cartels, a few fully armed drones could find them and send them to hell real quick. Everybody knows where they live, start blowing up their hiding places until they’re camped along the roadside. End the problem, but of course, they don’t and they won’t.

      9. Mileaway says:

        It’s agood thing Mexico only has borders with the US. That way we know for sure there isn’t any possible way any other foriegn interest could be smuggling guns into Mexico.

      10. freedomunrestricted says:

        @mileway, because it has been proven to happen before. look at prohibition of alcohol. after that was repealed violence in the streets disappeared overnight. trafficking drugs is not a profitable venture if people can buy it legally. it would make as much sense as trying to illegally smuggle sugar into the country.

      11. Danny81 says:

        @Illuminati, you are one ignorant individual. Lead, follow, or get out of the way, but don’t blame the USA. Despite any drug use that happens here, there are only 300M people and I can assure you that most of us do NOT use those kind of drugs! Mexico’s corruption, cartels, etc. is the source of the problem. Their laws, and the fact they the government cannot control crime, which is a major component of their gvovernment and day-to-day existence!

        Arm the Mexican populace and see what happens. They will solve their own problems. WOW! What a novel idea, not having to whine to someone else as victims looking for salvation. Physician, heal thyself.

      1. Al Pearson says:

        Can we make a sign out of dead mexicans that says “No More Illegals” and put it on the border?

      2. Ken says:

        It’s no longer about drugs crossing from Mexico. If we could stop the flow of drugs altogether unemployment would sky. We would have to lay off drug enforcement officer, lawyers, prison guards ,and all things associated with the now corporate run prison systems.
        People would kick their addictions and all the social workers, hospital and doctors needed to manage drug addiction would be out of work.
        I’m sorry for looking behind the curtain.

    2. More of the Same'ol says:

      I think it would be more effective if it was in mexican – No, they don’t speak Spanish but some “Ebonic” form of it.

      1. DL says:

        @al pearson nicely put, There crimes there problem not ours, every last one of there police and polititions are so corrupt its a joke, there is no law in mexico, only law ther is money, and eric holder himself is the only one who sold a mexican guns……

    3. joey zasa says:


      1. Scott says:

        excellent idea!!!!!!!!!!

      2. CleanFun says:


      3. Kyle says:

        Yeah, and make the sign out of crushed illegals! wait…

      4. Philly says:

        Make it out of crushed illegals?

      5. Philly says:

        kyle beat me to it.

      6. warmonger9 says:

        dam it dude, you beat me to the comment. lol

      7. sopwith says:

        Yes, and make it out of the tons of garbage left behind in national parks along the border by the illegal aliens.

      8. Kirk says:


        Heh heh, Yeah….but what would we make THAT out of???😉

      9. Pancho3 says:

        We could make it out of the bras and panties the illegals leave on the rape trees.

      10. Rodent says:

        Made out of crushed illegal mexicans

      11. Harvey Morgan says:

        I agree with the idea of a sign – however, what good will it do when our own federal government will not enforce its own laws, and then attacks & degrades states which do enforce them Does this “state’s rights” issue remind anyone of an issue that erupted in the 1860s? Many states have attempted to bring stricter illegal alien enforcement into our laws, and have gotten nothing but “bad press” from the federal government. I love my country, & proudly served it for 14 years in the USAF, but am now considered a “possible domestic terrorist” because I believe in preserving our country’s laws by being “politically incorrect”. If our country were to come under direct attack from a declared enemy, I will still gladly risk my life to preserve her, but I will more fervently protect my right, as an American citizen, to defend the laws of our constitution, as written by the founders of this great nation, than defend the “rights” of those who wish to enter illegally & reap the rewards of citizenship without going through the proper procedures.

    4. SEGrady says:

      I say the US now needs a sign on the Mexico-US border that says NO MORE DRUGS….and let’s make a pact that we’ll stop the flow of guns when they stop the flow of drugs and illegals into America!

    5. JOE says:

      There are only two solutions to this problem, Legalize drugs in America or get Mexico their own second amendment. Let us remember how the good people of Columbia solved their problem with Pablo Escobar, after their government, military and law enforcement failed to protect its people the true patriots of Columbia joined together as a independent vigilante group and hunted his ass down! NUFF SAID!

      1. Harvey Morgan says:

        Simply put – Amen Brother!

    6. Understanding says:

      I couldn’t agree with Felipe Calderon more. This is a huge issue and the citizen’s of Mexico are suffering on a daily basis. OK, I guess you talked us into it, we’ll pay HALF of the cost for a giant fence running the length of our shared border. There will be a huge improvement in the standard of living of each and every Mexican citizen if we could just get that fence up.

    7. Tommy Mitchell says:

      We’ll gladly take the weapons back if they take their illegal’s back

      Sounds fair huh ?

      1. rawhide says:

        I concur😀

      2. Harvey Morgan says:

        Not only yes, but HELL YES!

      3. Mileaway says:


    8. greg says:

      How about a ‘NO MORE DRUGS’ sign being posted on the U.S. side?????

      1. Cogentblue says:

        Made out of crushed cocaine? Oh wait that wouldn’t last long, never mind.

    9. MichaelZ says:

      What i really like is how calderone said he has cracked down on the drug lords. how do you crack down on your money makers, besides that, if he was nit with them he would be dead already. Automatic weapons from America my ass, we all know what a crock that is, UNLESS, Holder gave them to the druggies, thats about the only way that they would have come from the USA.

    10. dirk diggler says:

      I have an idea, let’s make a sign that says: “No more illegals!”

    11. Harvey Morgan says:

      I seriously doubt they would even read it. They do not care about the thoughts of others – even tax paying citizens of this vountry.

    12. sappershanks says:

      Don’t we usually go to Mexico to get automatic weapons? Not the other way around?

    13. TAZ 308 says:

      OK so they say one of their federal prosecutors was detained under suspicion of protecting one of the cartels. That seem to me like most of the problem lies with Mexico and their incapability to fight crime so they turn the US into their scape goat attacking the rights of the American citizen to bear arm. Why should we (the legal gun owners) have to pay for the Mexicans problems that lie within their own gov.. Look what happened in the UK their crime spiked because they (citizens) have no way to defend themselves. Mexico should know that we will fight for ourlives and our rights, and that if they want to make a better nation for themselves it’s up to them to decide. We are not responsible for their actions or their problems. The people who do smuggle things over ther border guns, drugs, or whatever will always find a way to do it. It is up to the Mexican gov to step up on their side and the US will do what needs to be done on our side. No matter what though there will never be a time without violence or without crime, it is just up to that gov. to punish those invovled!

    14. Danny81 says:

      A letter about guns to Obama…AND HOLDER?[LMAO] Yup, that would work! Can you say “Fast & Furious?” Shur… I knew you could.

      Calderon should follow the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights and give every Mexican citizen the right to keep and bear arms. Arm every Mexican and see whether or not the cartels prevail. There is a problem with a simple solution and NO ONE sees it! The government, dear Mexican nationals, cannot protect you… but Smith, Wesson, Colt, SIG & Sauer, et. all. can! It’s that same old argument that guns kill people. IDIOTS ALL!

    15. Ken says:


      It’s no longer about drugs crossing from Mexico. If we could stop the flow of drugs altogether unemployment would sky. We would have to lay off drug enforcement officer, lawyers, prison guards ,and all things associated with the now corporate run prison systems.
      People would kick their addictions and all the social workers, hospital and doctors needed to manage drug addiction would be out of work.
      I’m sorry for looking behind the curtain.

    16. W.E. Robindon says:

      If every mental midget in the US would stop buying an using dope from mexico the problem wold fix itself.

    17. Hutch 7.62 says:

      tell Eric Holder and Obama to stop giving guns to the cartels. then Calderon can erect a sign on his southern border

  2. Bill says:

    And we should make a sign that says, NO MORE DRUGS, NO MORE DRUG GANGS, and NO MORE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

    1. Loca says:

      I’m going to make a sign outside Mcdonalds out of french fries, that says, “NO MORE FAT PEOPLE!”. Bet Moochelle will be there to take credit, wearing all black mumu skirt, of course.

      1. Bum-Thrower says:

        SJL needs to be there ‘mugging’ too….

    2. blinkin357 says:

      A lot of good that would do.

    3. Mr. Dude says:

      No more kidnapping our kids (look it up), no more torturing people heinously who won’t take bribes.

      Like @#$% we’ll give up our guns. We have guns BECAUSE of people like the corrupt disgrace that are Mexico’s “officials.” Go whine somewhere else, Calderon.

  3. mike says:

    Maybe Mexico could help BOTH of us by enforcing their borders. Meanwhile, maybe Rick Perry should make a huge billboard out of weed that says “NO MORE DRUGS!”

    1. Steve says:

      If you made it out of weed you just know someone would light it and everyone would be standing downwind of it for that contact high.
      Great way to sell bags of Doritos and Twinkies though.

    2. Bob says:

      Mexico enforces the HELL out of their border…

      Their SOUTHERN border.

    3. John says:

      It would do just as well if Amricans quit smoking pot and playing the biggest role in the supply and demand aspect of the situation!! Don’t blame mexico when it’s clear that the only reason this exist is because Americans are the biggest consumer of drugs.

      1. Philly says:

        So, Mexico has no fault whatsoever in all of this Johnny boy?

      2. Casper says:

        Weed coming in is the least of the problems concerning our porous southern border. Bob is right, they enforce the hell out of their southern border. Unfortunately for us, this ‘open border’ policy is a deeply ingrained agenda item for the Democratics.

      3. Mr. Dude says:

        Yeah, we should stop consuming drugs, but how do you propose we do that? What will you do that all the others didn’t. (Yeah, I know, someone is bound to jump in and say “legalize it”) It’s a cultural issue, and that’s a real whopper of a problem on many fronts. Stopping drug consumption barely touches the problems we’ve got as a nation.

        I WILL blame Mexico because the things their corrupt officials and cartels do are beyond your imagination. There aren’t words to describe how evil these people are. Have you seen the pictures of what they do to people they don’t like? If it wasn’t drugs, they’d do something else just as bad. It doesn’t matter – we need to control our border regardless of whether there are drugs or not. There will still be horrible people down there until Mexico does something real about their crime and corruption. We need to do something besides the usual charade – something real – to secure our border.

      4. Jim says:

        SO, drug dealers get people hooked, and then you blame the addict? MAYBE the 1st time. BUT when PUSHERS who are employed by Mexico, PUSH the drugs, then its their fault.
        DRUG PUSHERS/SELLERS get DECADES more time in jail than a USER/addict. WHAT does that tell you?

      5. Oldshooter says:

        If American drug usage is really the cause of the problem, how come Canada isn’t having the same kind of national crisis as Mexico? The answer is because the problem isn’t American drug usage, it’s Mexican corruption. Mordida and other forms of official corruption are considered as normal and acceptable in Mexico (and virtually all other third-world countries) as tipping is in America. Our society is founded upon the principle of the Rule of Laws, and corruption is corrosive to that principle and therefore unacceptable here. Mexican (and most other third-world countries) never moved beyond the Rule of Men principle imposed by their earlier colonizers, and that principle is aided by official corruption, so it continues to flourish. Mexico will continue to have problems like this until they change the basic social and legal principles upon which their society is based, which will be about the time Hell reaches 32 degrees Farenheit. Nothing short of a major political and social revolution there will effect any real or lasting change.

      6. Oldgrayguy says:

        Oldshooter, I believe you hit the nail squarely on the head. But that too will somehow be our fault … go figure.

  4. Joe B says:

    The article states 140,000 weapons have been seized in Mexico since 2006. The implication is those come from America. That is not true. A small percentage comes from the USA. Drug cartels want full automatic weapons. Those are not available from the USA. Those are bought internationally from international gun dealers who have no souls. So, the guns that do make it to Mexico are semi-automatic and a small percentage of the problem there. US gun shows are NOT the problem.

    1. Avigdor says:

      You are correct. Most full auto weapons are coming from China.

      Mexico is a failed state….

      1. wes says:

        ..and some from Eric Holder, our Attorney General

      2. CCar says:

        Just do a little research on US pages about gun selling or go to the south US border is full of gun shops and guess who is shopping the guns.

    2. Captain Furious says:

      The media either doesn’t understand the difference or intentionally distorts the truth to achieve their political objectives. “Automatic” weapons? Assault weapons? Meaningless terms when used by the media. Criminals in mexico don’t want what we sell in gun stores in the US. And the laws in mexico are unbelievably strict regarding possession of guns and ammo.

    3. Rktman says:

      Going to a great gun show this weekend. Woo Hoo! If i can get past all the full auot weapons and smugglers lining up to buy them that is, Sarc off!

    4. sopwith says:

      The Chinese are happy to sell arms to anyone. In Africa they sell arms to both sides of the perpetual wars there with hopes of thinning out the population to make it easier to colonize. They have the same plans for North America. Look up General Chi Haotian to see the transcript of a speach he made a few years ago outlining his plans

      1. Jim says:

        AND Manchurian candidate Obama and the proletariat party know as the democrat caucus are aiding and abetting the cause of their communist masters. BUT hey, at least we get free health care.

    5. Jim says:

      Absolutely true. I doubt RPG-7s, Chinese Grenades, RPKs/(belt fed 7.6×39, came from America.
      IF anything, they came directly from CHINA, or funneled thru Venezuela(Chavez, seeking to destabilize Mexico a, Columbia drug lords. A small percentage came from America and those vast majority came thru FAST AND FURIOUS. YES, that program that ERIC HOLDER/OBAMA knew about, yet stood before the US CONGRESS with the MEXICAN PRESIDENT, who called for repeal of OUR 2ND AMENDMENT.

  5. RC says:

    Urges america to stop the flow of weapons into mexico? How about mexico stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the US? Besides murders have happened ever since the dawn of man. Weather it be with a stick or a gun. To get rid of murders you must get rid of people.

  6. Derek says:

    What a waste of firearms.

    How about a “No More Drug War” billboard made of DEA agent’s badges?

    1. Anti-Derek says:

      Or a sign that says “No More Pot Heads” made out of Dereks.

      1. Anti-Anti-Derek says:

        Or a sign that says “No More Authoritarians” made out of Anti-Dereks.

      2. Anti-Pro-Anti-Derek says:

        Or a sign that says “No More Antis” made out of OH MY GOD THE UNIVERSE IS COLLAPSING!!!!

      3. Andrew P. says:

        @Anti-Pro-Anti-Derek: Best comment all day. ROFL

  7. Jake Doren says:


  8. bob says:

    The automatic weapons are coming from the corrupt Mexican military and federal police. You can’t buy automatic weapons, grenades and rocket launchers in American gunstores.

    1. Dary says:

      Fast and Furious, we sold them guns and we have done it before. It is a bad strategy.

      1. Steve says:

        They were all semi-automatic. Fully automatic weapons are far too hard to get and too expensive here. I agree, Fast and Furious was a very bad strategy.

    2. mike says:

      you can buy full auto parts and convert regular guns all day in the US. But why when you can get 4 from china for the price on 1 here.

      1. bob says:

        Like i said, 99% of people cannot buy fully automatic guns in the US. Those guns are coming from the corrupt Mexican military and federal police

      2. Eric says:

        B fn S! semi’s and full auto are completely different animals, you know nothing about guns.

      3. Earl says:

        The only “regular” firearm in the U.S. that can be readily converted to full auto/selective fire is the M1 carbine. And if Mike checks, the sellers of the conversion parts, he’ll find many of them only sell the parts to already certified M2 carbine owners.

    3. charles chapman says:

      But the weapons must be coming from the USA-otherwise there would be a problem the Mexicans have to solve. it’s a LOT easier to blame the norteamericanos, as usual.

  9. Duke Taylor says:

    Next a prominent Democrat will begin the assault on the second amendment,

    1. Sig Sauer says:

      Our president has already started the assault on our 2nd Amendment. Just follow his speeches before he became president.

  10. get real says:

    Maybe we should make one out of marijuana and cocaine and have it say “no more drugs” across our borders… it can be right next to the one that says “mind your own business” about our freedoms. Maybe if more citizens had guns there, your crime problem would be resolved. Perhaps you should put that sign up near an BATFE office that ran “fast and furious”. Law abiding gun owners aren’t sending guns to Mexico.

    1. FEDUp says:

      Absolutely! Instead of destroying the weapons, they should have distributed them to the citizens so they could PROTECT THEMSELVES from the thugs and cartel-backed violence.
      If the implication is supposed to be that all Mexico’s gun violence stems from the flow of weapons from the US, well They need to take that up with Eric Holder. He is responsible for most of those illegal weapons winding up in Mexico.
      I would bet our administration has enlisted the help of Calderon to wage it’s war on our second ammendment rights. Remember when he was in the US addressing congress with the same message not too long ago?

  11. odias says:

    When Mecico stops supplying drugs, We’ll stop supplying guns!!!

    1. Anti-Derek says:

      You know, except that aside from some obama minions we aren’t supplying their guns.

      1. odias says:

        it was tongue and cheeck. excuse the typo too…Maybe Mexico should have a warrant for arrest nameing Eric Holder, for supplying illegal weapons to drug cartels…

  12. BobMbx says:

    We should return the favor by erecting a sign made of crushed drug dealers that says NO MORE DRUGS

  13. Deskboy says:

    Although Calderon has a point, Surgio, Bill and Mike make excellent rebuttals. When will Mexico takes responsibility for their failings as a country? Take a lesson from the Pepes. Kill your drug cartels, it is your only choice.
    Your Army has a job to do, so do it.

    We will throw Obama out of office and Holder in prison in due course.

  14. allen says:

    Dear Mr. Felipe Calderon
    You stop the flow of your citizens and drugs into the US and we will stop the flow of weapons into Mexico. You take care of your problems and we’ll take care of our.

  15. MTB says:

    NO MORE ILLEGALS! F**K Mexico. Yea…play the victim role….

    1. warmonger9 says:

      I agree totally!

  16. Joe A says:

    NIce if him to use english.

  17. Willey says:

    Simple solution to this problem, seal both sides of the boarder.

  18. Jim in California says:

    Richard Nixon lost his presidency for childishly bugging the DNC headquarters. Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy, went to prison for 4 1/2 years for his part.

    The Obama Administration has given over 3 billion to failed Solar Power entities who contributed to his campaign, bailed out General Motors, by payi9ng off the Union, while the Bond Holders received zip.

    Then Obama, Holder, and ATF director Kenneth E. Melson, concoct “Fast and Furious” to deliberately sell guns to Mexican Cartel members, “working under the radar” as Obama said to Sara Brady, in a fraudulent attempt to blame honest firearms dealers for the violence in Mexico….I well remember the dull witted Barbara Boxer stating that “the majority of guns used in crimes in Mexico, have come because of the “gun show loop hole” in America.”

    Obama, Holder, and ATF director Kenneth E. Melson belong in prison, and I seriously question the intellect of those who support Obama in spite of this criminal behavior.

    Nixon belonged out of office for his transgressions, Obama and company are an infinitely greater threat to American Liberty, for their aiding of the Mexican Cartels.

  19. Bob Smith says:

    Where are they buying automatic weapons from in the U.S.? Those type of weapons are coming from 3rd world types in South and Central America! Don’t listen to the idiot reporters who think every gun in the U.S. is of the automatic variety. They don’t know a squirt gun from a AR-15 (semi auto rifle).

  20. John says:

    Guns don’t kill people. Twisted, law-breaking individuals kill people. Oh yeah…and lawful citizens protecting their rights kill people, too. Long live 2A. Mexico needs to clean up their act and not waste time with these publicity stunts.

  21. Straw Man says:

    We’ll swap you. We’ll take ALL our guns back that IDIOTS HOLDER and OBAMA allowed illegally in your great country……..but YOU……YOU have to take back all your own people who are bankrupting OUR (once) great country! Or……we’ll take the guns and you can have Holder and Obama…….how bout that?


    1. Sig Sauer says:

      I have a better idea – we’ll keep all the illegals that have entered our country and Mexico takes Obama and Holder!

  22. TRACY says:

    Sounds like a good reason to CONTROL THE F*&IN BORDER!!!!!!!

  23. Fred says:

    Should have said: “NO MORE WEAPONS ERIC!”

  24. Jeff says:

    Dear President Calderon: F–K YOU!!!!!

    Love, an American citizen who is fed up with your corrupt government and all of the citizens that you allow to come to the US illegally.

  25. Steve Martin says:

    The President of Mexico has probably been owned by the Drug Cartels since he took office. He has about 2-dozen bodies, decapitated, tortured, faces burned off with acid. He has mayors and police chiefs dead within one day of taking office. What a joke of a sign. Worthless Leaders make Worthless Sense.

  26. Avigdor says:

    Mexico is a failed state. We need to put our military in their to stablize the country then we should plan to annex Mexico into the US. It solves so many problems.

    1. Jake Doren says:

      Amen!! Hermano!!

  27. Steve Martin says:

    Correction: 2-dozen bodies EACH DAY.

  28. John Butler says:

    I have always felt sorry for the middle class of Mexico. The law abiding citizens should be allowed to arm themselves for protection. We should campaign for the laws in Mexico to allow decent citizens the right to carry. This billboard is based on a distortion of reality. Bad guys will have their guns regardless and good guys should have them too. When we send the illegal aliens back home in 2013, if they have no criminal history, we should arm them with a copy of our Constitution (which we fought to have) and weapons to implement it back home in Mexico. The illegals want to live here because here they don’t have the oppresive, criminal, and corrupt, government of their native country… yet.

    1. otto says:

      The sad thing is that Mexico has no middle class.

      1. bob says:

        a very small one. then again, middle class is different in each country

  29. otto says:

    Presidente Cabrón is as stupid as Governor Moonbeam and his banning the open carry of firearms statewide.

    What he should have done is to SUBSIDIZE the sale of firearms to Mexicans! The average Mexican has a serious need of self-defence against corrupt government officials, drug cartels and the average Mexican criminal.

    Mexico will never improve under these rules.

  30. Mark Gam says:

    Well, just like we were told be Mexico about the amount of illegal drugs coming over the boarder “Well it wouldn’t be so large if there wasn’t a demand, there wouldn’t be a need”. So my response to Mexico regarding the amount of weapons coming over the boarder is “Well it wouldn’t be so large if there wasn’t a demand, there wouldn’t be a need”!!!

    1. Jeff Do-art says:

      Absolutly correct , when Americans buy drugs from Mexico we are blamed for the drug promblems in Mexico,when Mexicans buy guns from America Americans are again blamed for the gun problems in Mexico.Always America’s fault.

  31. Richz99 says:

    Great article, CBS… NOT!!! It’s simply amazing that you DIDN’T INCLUDE EVEN ONE WORD ABOUT FAST AND FURIOUS!

    Why don’t you inform your readers about our Federal Government purposely arming the Mexican Drug Cartels with thousands of guns? Don’t you think that’s news? Shouldn’t it be a HUGE part of this story?

    CBS “News” is worthless.

    1. Bud says:

      There is also no mention of the percentage of weapons actually from the US.

  32. Eric Cartman says:

    There should be a sign put up on the United States side that says

  33. Steve says:

    In other news America makes sign made out of Illegal’s and posted on the border.

  34. Pete says:

    Maybe they should have just sent a letter to US Politicians and Holder himself…Instead of directing it toward the American People. It is our politicians that control the drug trade and guns in Mexico

  35. Conservative T & T says:

    Hey Mexico, don’t blame we the citizen for your weapons problems, blame the White House and DOJ for allowing weapons to be funneled into your nation to begin with. And another thing, what about if we stopped sending weapons and we keep them here and you keep your illegals there? Good trade? I think that works for me! I mean, I know there are jobs that Americans won’t do and all, but I am sure we can find someone to work those jobs since people are so frustrated here that they can’t find work. But I don’t blame Mexico really for doing something like this, although maybe making a wall of crushed weapons would have made a point and made the American people that much happier.

  36. satch says:

    They’re just telling Obama,Holder,and ATF,”no more,we got enough.

  37. Walter says:

    Automatic handguns? I wish people could get these things right. We are talking about semi-automatic weapons!

  38. ArmsDealer1776 says:

    Mexico has a total gun ban for ordinary citizens. They should have registered those guns and issued them to trained citizens.

    All the guns are coming from the ATF and our Government directly, NOT GUN STORES and GUN SHOWS!

    In the USA FULLY AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUNS COST OVER 10,000 dollars each:

    What about the warehouses across Central and South American countries stocked with pallets of COLD WAR WARSAW PACT AK-47s?

    As Communism was spreading in South America during the 1960s-80s the Soviets were shipping in massive amounts of weapons…

    I bet the cartels can get fully automatic Soviet stockpile weapons for much less expensive than $15,000 per gun. And I bet smuggling them in and around South America is a lot easier and less expensive as well.

  39. Steve says:

    Um… How about we stop calling semi-automatic weapons, “automatic?” While I realize that most journalists are pansies that never served in the military or for that matter have ever held a gun, there is no excuse for their ignorance.

  40. HolderDCoward says:

    Mexican gangsters buy weapons by the boatload from China and other sources. It’s idiots in our own government have been doing the gun walking (with federal permission) from the states, in a misguided attempt to promote gun control. Fortunately those responsible (Holder and co.) should be in jail by 2013.

  41. astralweeks says:

    What? And Obama and Holder weren’t at the unveiling? But without them they wouldn’t have put it up.

  42. astralweeks says:

    No mas, Senior Obama.

  43. Just Me says:

    Can anyone stop and think for one moment what would happen if the U.S. Government discovered that another country was shipping weapons into the United States? The Fascist maniacs would label them terrorist and declare war. Too bad Mexico doesn’t have the balls to do it, but what I would like to see in this particular situation is for another country to issue International Arrest Warrants for all involved in the Fast & Furious program, including Eric Holder. They should be dragged to The Hague, to the World Court. Perhaps Russia would be a good candidate for what the U.S. did to Victor Boot. An ultimatum should be given to the U.S. for the immediate hand over of these criminals to be tried, if the U.S. refused then the World Court with arresting powers should come in covertly and take them in the dark of night. If the Fascist Amerikan Government wants Global Justice and a Global Order then I say we give it to them.

  44. JiM says:

    We should post a billboard that says, “NO MORE DRUGS” made out of ground up Mexican drug trafficers…

  45. Booyah Boy says:

    would it be in poor taste to make a sign out of illegal immigrants stating “No More Illegal immigrants”?

  46. Mac says:

    How about we stop the flow of dollars and products into Mexico while we’re at it?

  47. JungleCogs says:

    The only people running weapons into Mexico are Obama and his regime.

  48. Terry Rohan says:

    the tool of the cartels wants to get re-elected before he becomes useless.
    Up the RA

  49. tod schwarze says:

    you can bet no american politician will put up a similar sign saying

  50. PeteTx says:

    Stop the flow of drugs into the US Felipe. OK we can vote out Obama to cut out weapons flowing into your country.

  51. Terry Rohan says:

    in Arizona they are scratches

  52. David says:

    Is this thing made from all the guns Mr. Holder and Obama sent down there? If so I don’t think you found and crushed them all.

  53. Philip Inuhoff says:

    Can we put a sign too? FU made from the cartel beheadings?

  54. swcoolbreeze says:

    What a simple solution, just like that! Just put up a sign and gunrunning stops. When will put up a sign that says ‘No more illegals?”

  55. kettlecooked says:

    That’s fine.
    Can we now put a sign saying “NO MORE ILLEGALS!”?

    1. justsayin' says:

      should you make it out of mexicans?

      1. kettlecooked says:

        There’s a difference?

  56. Ozzariah Michael says:

    How about stopping the flow of drugs and illegal aliens into our country jerk face?

  57. American says:

    This is just the start of obamas campain to ban guns if he gets reelected. Obama has his hand in this. This is his way of justifying the ban of firearms in America.

    1. Brad says:

      From my cold dead hands.

      Liberty or death.

  58. Michael Gene says:

    Where’s our sign “No More Illegal Aliens , No more Mexican Drug Runners, No More Mexican Murderers/ Pediphiles/ Rapists/ Thieves …. ).

  59. Rose says:

    47,000 dead? We have our own Viet Nam on our borders!
    Liberals must consider this a convenience on the “undesirables.” What other excuse is there when a goverment allows this to go on and on? We get reports here in Texas every week of chopped up bodies.

  60. Brad says:


  61. StopTheViolence says:

    This is a very important issue affecting everyone. Many have joined together to sign a petition asking President Obama to make changes to help curb the flow of weapons into Mexico. Join them in this pursuit of a safer Mexico here:

    1. Brad says:

      Have you read the news? OBAMA supplied the guns to the Mexicans.

    2. Mark says:

      That’s pretty funny StopTheViolence, considering Obama and his administration were the ones responsible for the smuggling of the guns that murdered border agent Brian Terry along with 200 Mexican civilians!
      The majority of the guns that come into Mexico come in from the South, so you assertions are based on nonsense.

  62. jack sprat says:

    In this world that moves so fast, it’s nice to see that some things never change; like Mexico blaming it’s incompetence, corruption, and laziness on the US and whomever else it can.

  63. James Woods says:

    So I have to press 1 for english in america and mexico puts up signs to spite us in english.

    What a country.

  64. snewsom2997 says:

    If Mexico want to stop weapons from coming in maybe they should secure their border, Oh wait, that would cost them Billions in GDP.

  65. tomfromalgonquin says:

    How about a sign facing this one saying NO MORE ILLEGALS!

  66. Scott says:

    OK, then We put up a 6 ton sign that says…NO MORE DRUGS – CHILD RAPISTS – JOB/ID THIEVES…We can built it with solidified Meth & Herion w/ a green Marijuana outline.

  67. Kevin says:

    How about they [Mexico] stop sending in citizens illegally and stop sending in illegal drugs and we will try to convince our criminals to stops selling guns illegally to their drug runners and their criminals who help illegal aliens get across our boarder

  68. Peter Griffin says:

    I would really like to see a similar sign on our side of the border facing Mexico made with crushed illegal aliens forming the message “No more Mexican illegals in the USA” in Spanish.

  69. justavoter says:

    I think we need a sign facing the other way that we are presently working on bringing the main suspects (DOJ/DEA/FBI) to justice.

    Wait for that or talk to Obama, we aren’t giving up our guns……Period.

  70. AmericaFirst says:

    Perhaps Mexico could first quit sending all of there criminals ,poor and out of work here ..Perhaps if we made a sign out of dead Mexicans Saying NO MORE ILLEGALS ..They might get the point …

  71. Stan B says:

    Nobody knows where Mexico’s guns come from. But only about 1/3rd of them come from the US – and they are brought over by MEXICANS, you can be sure….

  72. justavoter says:

    Can we set up a sign showing a hospital ER room packed with illegals or maybe a school room and ask them, no more please.Sign up for citizenship in an orderly manner.

  73. DawnJ says:

    Dear President Calderon,
    You stop the flow of drug smugglers into America, and that will go a long way toward stopping the flow of weapons into Mexico.

  74. The Truth says:

    Yeah, stop putting guns in the hands of Mexicans and making them shoot each other. Good grief.

  75. justavoter says:

    I think this sign was aimed at the current administration who is actively supplying arms to Mexico.I doubt there is a sign facing Guatemala asking the same thing.

  76. IgNore says:

    Why don’t we just end the federal drug war??

  77. schmed says:

    No more of your drugs or people !!

  78. Tyrone says:

    Funny how they have money for signs, but not to support their uneducated, illiterate losers.

  79. Mark says:

    Since the mainstream media can’t seem to readily identify the difference between full auto vs semi automatic, etc,… her is a handy little guide to firearm identification for journalists.

  80. hma says:

    F@#k you Mexico.

  81. Reginald D says:

    Maybe they should also add another that says “No more beheaded corpses in our deserts.” or the ever popular “No more hanged bodies on bridges.”

  82. Simontacchi says:

    Most Automatic Weapons come from South America and North Korea and they have NO MARKINGS, only American Guns can be Traced and that is probably less than 10% of the Firearms in Mexico.

  83. Leroy Whitby says:

    The sign is about the gunrunning by the Obama administration with Operation Fast and Furious I guess. Is Mexico with Obama on that or is this a slap at the operation? I don’t get it.

  84. Emery says:

    How about no more illegal aliens to take care, feed, educate etc……. No more illegal gang members smuggling drugs into the US. No more illegal gang members smuggling Illegal aliens….

  85. btruth says:

    Do you hear them Eric Holder? No more CIA drug/gun running across the border! The banking mafia in control of mexico, controls the ussa as well, how ironic.

  86. Bryce says:

    How about Calderon STOP THE FLOW OF ILLEAGEL MEXICANS into America!!!
    That would be a good trade.

  87. snapperman says:

    I’m willing to trade – we’ll keep our guns if Mexico keeps her citizens.

  88. Thomas Majors says:

    This I bet was phase 2 for a push to have federal gun control laws instilled. If Fast & Furious did not break. If the knowledge that F & F was not a push to modify our gun laws. This would have made a much stronger point. All it shows me now is that the idea of controlling the guns in the USA is an effort that extends beyond our borders.

    1. Bob Calvin says:

      Absolutely! Read up on the Arms Treaty the UN wants us to approve that Hillary brought back. It calls for outlawing some firearms particularly Semiautomatics and magazines. No AR15s and the like. It’s what George Soros wants. Any Senator who approves this treaty will need body guards.

  89. Tom Genin says:

    Close, protect, defend, search the Border.

    Solve the problem, or quit crying about it. BTW, Calderone can than Obama for pushing 2,500 of those weapons across the border via Fast & Furious.

  90. CebVa says:

    How about we put up a sign.


  91. bob smithers says:

    No more drugs

    No more illegal crosings

    No more sending money home and not paying taxes

  92. Johnathan says:

    Does this include those the USA gives to the Mexico government and police that they in turn sell to the drug cartels? I agree, the USA should cut off all military support to Mexico, for Mexico’s sake. Remember the “Great Administrator” proposed an invasion of Mexico to “secure the safety”. It starts with funding, then goods, then “advisers”, then troops. Mexico, just say NO.

  93. down south says:

    How about NO MORE MERCY flanked by marines with .50 cals, belt fed, mounted on a jeep on both sides…. about every 1000 feet apart should be sufficient. If it’s a drug war we’re fighting, then fight it like one.

  94. cjhsa says:

    What a bunch of d-bags. They know damn well 90% of the weapons in Mexico come from the old soviet bloc countries. And you can’t even BUY FULL-AUTO weapons in the US. Well, you can, but they’re collectors items….

  95. RJB says:

    You cant get an automatic in the USA without a serious permit. The story stinks.

    Lets put up a no more illegals sign with fake id cards from mexico and a no more drugs sign to boot.

  96. Paul says:

    What’s the problem? Mexico can’t stop guns at the border? Give a gun to each illegal and they’d be back in the U.S. in no time. Lets make a deal. We’ll only allow guns to go into Mexico based on the drugs and illegals that get into the U.S. They’re not doing a damn thing to stop the problem. There are satelites that can tell if a goat has moved in Afganistan. Surely they’d be able to spot marijuana fields in Mexico. Surely they’d be able to identify the drug lords mansions. Wipe them out to show us you’re serious.

  97. cjhsa says:

    A semi-auto AR-15 costs about $750 in the USA. You can get a full auto AK on the south of the border black market for about $250. Now… tell me, Mr. Calderon, you why are lying to us?

  98. Frank M says:

    Cool. Can we respond by posting a big sign reading “NO MORE ILLEGALS” made out of crushed illegal Mexican immigrants?

  99. Paul Scipio says:

    The Mexican President was gamed by Obozo and that criminal Attorney General Holder, they were the ones who flooded Mexico with high powered weapons. They made sure that the guns got into the right hands (Drug Dealers), this destabilized Mexico and with that they were hoping to get the second amendment in the US Constitution voided out completely. The Mexican President was making a fool out of him self 2 years ago before a joint session of congress when he was demanding we stop weapon sales in this country to Americans, all the while Obozo & Holder were laughing there a$$es off. Mexico always had problems, but with Obozo they quadrupled.

  100. Not Chicken Little says:

    We should post a sign on our side of the border, “No More Illegals” and it should be made out of illegal immigrants. Hell, we could write a whole series of books, not just a slogan…

  101. CleanFun says:

    How about you stop the flow of murdering, raping, leaching illegals crossing into our country and we’ll stop arming them.

  102. Spanky Spankster says:

    Predator drones armed w/ hellfire missiles along the border…

  103. Paul Scipio says:

    Mexico is not the only country that is getting special attention from Holder & Obozo, Honduras, Belize and Costa Rica drug dealers are also getting special buys on high power guns for their own private armys. Thanks again Obozo/Holder

  104. garylee123 says:

    ““Dear friends of the United States, Mexico needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering,” Calderon said in English during the unveiling ceremony.

    Dear Friends of the US. Shut the Freakin’ border. Clean the RAMPANT corruption in your government. And, kill the drug lords and terrorists. (said in English, the official language of the US whether you like it or not.)

  105. JOSE says:

    Dear friends of MESSICO, THE USA needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering FROM 30 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS AND FROM YOUR DOPE, PLEASE HELP STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR PEOPLE AND OUR COUNTRY .

  106. el liberador says:

    If every privately owned firearm in the United States were suddenly vanished – there would be no appreciable change in the availability of weapons in the hands of drug runners in Mexico. The honest, hardworking people of Mexico deserve better than the corrupt politicians, military and police leaders they have. The honest, hardworking people of the United States deserve better than the corrupt politicians in Washington. Disarming free citizens will not solve anything.

  107. jeremy wakefield says:

    its the cia and atf running the guns and drugs in and out of mexico you morons

    1. Justin Capps says:

      Thank God Im not the only person who knows whats really going on!Good post Jeremy.

  108. Johnny says:

    We need an even larger sign along the boarder………..NO MORE ILLEGAL DRUGS!!!

  109. Shack of coffee says:

    “Dear friends of Mexico, the United States needs your help to stop this terrible violence that we’re suffering,”

    “The best way to do this is to stop the flow of illegals into the United States,”

  110. Geechee says:

    Right out of the Obama Playbook.
    I can’t alter the situation I was elected to correct, so I’ll deflect blame by attributing the problem to someone or something else (tsunamis, George Bush).

    How ’bout we build a sign facing Mexico that says “No More Drugs!” and ask the Mexican Government to help stop the flow of drugs into the US?

    Wonder how much this WH kicked in for this sign.

  111. Phillep Harding says:

    Any US made automatic in the hands of the Mexican drug gangs was sold to them by the US Department of State. Auto’s are not very easy to get in the US, they cost about forty times as much as a semi auto.

  112. Jim says:

    So, can the USA make a sign made up of ILLEGAL ALIENS every 100 meters on the border? Seems to me Mexico getting indignant at Americans rights, means they should first clean up their own house.
    BESIDES, only a small percentage of those weapons EVER came from the USA. THE rest came from COLUMBIA, VENEZUELA, EL SALVADOR, ect.
    Besides, we could also put up signs that say “NO MORE ILLEGAL DRUGS”, but I’d be they’d ignore that.
    OR we could put a sign up, “NO MORE ILLEGALS WHO COME HERE TO AMERICA CAN DRIVE DRUNK. AND IF THEY DO and kill someone and RUN BACK TO MEXICO, THEY have to give the guy back to us for prosecution.

  113. Sunnie71 says:

    So does that mean that on our side of the border we can post a sign made out of illegal immigrants that says “No More Illegal Entry into the U.S.” How much do you think that would weigh? I bet it would be an excellent detterant!

  114. Jim says:

    SO, if a mexican illegal, somehow buys a gun, or steals a gun here in America, and takes it back to Mexico, whose fault is it? OURS or theirs? I’d say them. Maybe keep their burrito eating drugs to themselves.

  115. jim says:

    We could make a sign out of meth blocks saying “Keep your meth out of US”

  116. Sunnie71 says:

    How to make a third world nation:
    1. Gun control
    there is no number 2. After gun control taking everything from you is a piece of cake.

  117. David S. says:

    How about we put a sign up that says no more illegals pointed towards Mexico?

  118. Chuck Jenkins says:

    Here’s my snappy retort:

    How about we make a “no more Mexican illegal aliens” sign out of all the body parts their corrupt military cartel members left last year?

    When Mexico stops importing criminals, drugs and Hezbollah terrorists into our country, maybe we’ll start taking that P.O.S. country at their word and worry about a stupid political photo-op.

    Until they stop the corruption in their own country, they can kiss my pucker.

  119. Rick says:

    So based on this should American post a sign made of illegal emigrants that states “Stop the flow of Illegals” along the border as well?

    1. amplitude jones says:

      hahahahaha YES! But let’s make the lettering 95 feet tall, so they can see it for miles…and do it in BOTH english and español

  120. amplitude jones says:

    close your side of the border to traffic in ALL directions and your pretendo problem ceases to exist, mr el pigadenty

  121. daniel says:

    SEAL your border. You want “no more weapons”??? SEAL your BORDER AND STOP your DRUG SMUGGLERS (and nurses, nannys, cooks, and gardeners) from crossing. Don’t EVEN whine at us.

  122. Tim says:

    140k guns out of 3 million minimum? Hey keep terrorists and illegals out of our country thanks. Keep your drugs as well. We don’t need them. While your at it quit spending my tax money on your childrens educations in which your country has none of. Do not get me started on my medical expense because your people come across for treatment….because you do not have any hospitals….F mexico.

  123. kurt Cook says:

    We should set up a sign on our own side, facing Mexico, made from confiscated pot-pipes, cocaine spoons and heroin needles, that reads, in Spanish, NO MORE DRUGS!

  124. jimmy says:

    Sign in America, “No more Mexicans!”.

  125. Justin Playfair says:

    Were all those decapitations I keep reading about caused by guns imported from the United States.

    Mexico has lots of lush farmland, plenty of natural resources, and by all rights should be a wealthy nation. Maybe if they ever stop trying to blame all their problems on the United States then that country will stop being the cesspool it is that causes so many of its citizens to flee to this country.

  126. Fred Lopez says:

    Where is our sign stating “NO MORE ILLEGALS” or “WE SHOOT ILLEGALS ON SIGHT”

  127. elevenhundred says:

    Hey, Mexico should be grateful. Their illegal aliens who come here get free medical care/education/etc while the illegal aliens from Nicaragua and the rest of central America who go to Mexico are usually arrested, robbed, and deported or killed … by the Mexican police.

  128. Carl says:

    If the Mexican government can’t stop drugs from going north, why do they think we can stop guns from going south?

    While I would like to blame the ATF, especially for the guns they willingly handed over to the murderous gangs, the fact is that the Mexican cartels only buy US guns because it is a little easier than getting guns from South America or Asia, and our guns are a little bit nicer. Even if it were possible to cut that off (which it probably isn’t), the cartels would gladly make a slightly longer trip to buy their guns elsewhere in order to continue profiting from the multi-billion-dollar drug black market which was created, and is maintained, by the feds.

    1. jerryA says:

      What they won’t tell you is Cartels are getting full auto weapons, RPG’s, hand grenades, etc. That’s not stuff sold at a mom and pop gun store in America.

  129. Hairy Wall says:

    The sign should read “No More Weapons BATF”. Of course there are also all those thousands of automatic weapons the US government has supplied the Mexican military and police that mysteriously end up in cartel hands. Along with all that cheap Chinese and Russian artillery coming from South America and the Caribbean. All of it untouched by the average gringo.

  130. NOT Rio Grande Juan McCain says:


  131. jerryA says:

    Calderon has the audacity to put a sign like that up? I hope he’s sending the message to Mr. Gunrunner himself Eric Holder. Calderon has to be in with the Cartels, otherwise he would send the Mexican Army with armor into the troublesome cartel cities and take them out.

  132. Worry says:

    Felipe, do you think that the cartels could not readily pick up arms elsewhere? Also, is this not simply a distraction to cover-up the monunental level of offical corruption in Mexico, which is the real cause of the rise of the cartels? It is easier to blame foreigners for your problems than to squarely face them yourself. Vladimir Putin does the same thing, but the Russians still migrate from their homeland all the same.

  133. Borderbill says:

    I suppose the hand grenades being thrown into theatres and bars are also coming from the U.S.. Also the .50 cal MGs, the RPGs, and other serious military hardware the cartels are using. Most of it is coming from central american military stores. Much from mexican military, some of it given to them by our government. The grenade that was thrown into the bar here in Pharr, Texas (or was it Mission?) was of South Korean manufacture, luckily the idiot who threw it pulled the pin, but had failed to remove the shipping safety clip. Yeap, no spillover violence here in South Texas, most secure border ever according to our DHS Secretary. Forget those embarrassing daily stories you see in the local papers.

  134. Raul says:

    President Calderon, if you can’t stop the flow of drugs to our country, what makes you believe that we can stop the flow of guns to Mexico. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

  135. Nietertsnig says:

    This article reminded me of why I stopped watching mainstream news on TV. Remember how aggravating it was to always see propagandists skew or omit key facts? Thank goodness for alternative media. I just wish Drudge would link to more credible sources. He’s getting pretty sloppy. Linking to articles full of spelling and grammar errors is bad. Linking to tabloids and articles with misleading headlines is even worse. However linking to CBS news is a new low!

    I have some advice for the “objective” journalists at CBS. If you want to be taken seriously, then research “Operation Fast and Furious.” Next, investigate other gun walking operations that may have occurred in the past. Establish some journalistic integrity by revealing the truth. Dig deeper and do your jobs.

  136. Joe Bidenn says:

    Anybody notice the communist broadcast system never mentioned the thousands of guns the Democrats LET run into the hands of criminals in Mexico. Why is Obama never criticized on this channel. hmmmmm

    1. Jim says:

      Because DER FURHER Obama and his NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT PARTY (NAZY-D) have decreed that they know what is best. Their fellow criminals, i mean reporters, who work at dissemination, I mean reporting, have thought it thru.
      THEY cannot insult the president. FOR he is GOD. AND he knows better.
      NOW, sit down, eat your salad, and pay no attention to that woman eating a cheese burger behind the curtain (michelle)
      Oh yeah, GUNS are bad. THEY have to be. WE can only be free if we give up this right. WHEN we do, ALL crime will stop, and the government will protect your rights. NOT like they strip search you at the airport, or demand you quit recording a police officer with video.

  137. MO says:

    I love the idea of a sign on our side of the border. Be sure to do it in Spanish. Anybody know where to donate to the cause?

  138. Tours Martel says:

    To the “If it feels good, do it”crowd: the dead and the chaos of Mexico are paid for by your habits. Please feel free to take personal responsibility for the problems you created.

    1. Jim says:

      Oh, you mean the INNER CITY Black people that blame the CIA for running drugs should really take responsibility for themselves and get off of drugs, stop whoring around and work on improving their own community?

      1. Anti-Derek says:


        Whoa Whoa Whoa. Now you’re just talking crazy.

  139. Bob Calvin says:

    How many times must Mexico be told that we don’t sell automatic weapons in the US? If he’s finding automatics then he needs to talk to his buddies south of him or in his own military.

  140. gml says:

    Close the Borders! Simple!!!!

    1. James B says:

      I remember as a teenager, PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN closed the border. HE did so in response to Mexican drug lords, coming onto AMERICAN soil, kidnapping an American DEA agent Enrique Camarina, and told MEXICO, we are NOT OPENING the BORDER UNTIL WE GET THOSE GUYS DELIVERED TO US.
      So, its not impossible. AND not a bad idea. I would only add, that we leave ONE road, and ONE railway open. SO when we deport 20 million illegals and rescind their anchor babies status as ‘citizens’ then we’ll be ok. WHY do they get the benefit of committing a crime, when if ANYONE else committed a crime(American) they would never be able to keep benefits of said crime.?

  141. me :) says:

    man thats a waste of good guns for a stupid sign that dont matter

  142. BW says:

    He must be confused. The AUTOMATIC weapons are coming from Mexico’s south borders, and Mexico itself. It’s a pain in the ass to get an automatic weapon in the U.S., as well as extremely time consuming and a lengthy process.

  143. JCB says:

    Calderon is part of the drug trade and illegal immigration. This is nothing but political posturing. He is profiting for Eric Holder’s blunder and we’ll end up with more gun laws because of it.

  144. TD says:

    HAHA, If Mexico stops the flow of drugs to America, there would be no money to fund the guns that go into Mexico!

  145. me says:

    why would they buy them from the us for $400+ then have to convert them to fire automatic, when they can buy them for $5 already automatic from south america?

  146. StrongLogicalLiberalWoman says:

    All the violence in te world is because of the United States and Christianity. Wars did not exist and neither did weapons until Christianity invented them to first try and opress and destroy the Wiccans and the Islams, and then everyone else. The U.S is the biggest terrorist organization in the world and has the most money. Mexico is poverty stricken and full of violence because the U.S sends guns over there, and then when the poor people of Mexico try to come to the U.S for a better life , we kill them at the border or capture them and deny them their rights to due process , lawyer and a trial , and then send them back to the miserable hell we made for them. Americans are mostly racist jerks and think it is funny to do this to Mexico just because they have brown skin. Mexico is right for doing this in our face and I think America needs to totally ban guns, take them from all people, and only allow pepole like cops and such to have them. Guns, money, religion, Republicans, Christianity..the root of all evil in the world and I am proud that Obama is finally cracking down and starting to put legal mandates on religion starting with the Catholic church…which is the most evil religion and organization ever in history. I can’t wait until he finally wipes out religion from America and we can be an actual free living nation without religion telling us what to do and think and making our opressive and sexist laws. Mexico needs to also get rid of that Catholic stuff and go back to their Mayan and Aztec religious roots and ways. They’d be happier , healthier, and more productive. OBAMA 2012! We ARE the 99%!!!!!!

    1. Al Viggiani says:

      You are brain washed or just lazy. research a little about which you talk and you may be surprised. I am a Christian and you just say things that are your opinion. Facts are a way of refining an opinion. I say these things because you are a very angry person and believe it or not, let God into your soul he will heal your anger. Good Luck.

    2. JB_Parrothead says:

      If you hate the USA so much, then get out of it! Go live in Mexico, they could use more “people” like you!

      1. StrongLogicalLiberalWoman says:

        No, being a bible thumper is the WORST thing ever. America was founded on anti-religion. All of our founders were atheists. Stop making things up.

    3. Joel says:

      You know whats worse than hearing an ignorant Bible thumper? An ignorant anti bible thumper… Seriously, educate yourself before you speak.

    4. Not falling for it says:

      Dear StrongLogicalLiberalWoman ,
      Take your strong opinions and compare them to Hitler’s… If you hate everyone so badly for not sharing your beliefs and want to wipe them off the face of the earth… You and he are exactly the same.
      I understand that you are feeling alone in this world and need a hug but nobody can stand to be that near to you.
      I consider myself to be logical as well and my guess is that you want to stir up a commotion and force good people with comon sense to slip and say things that you can turn around and twist to make them sound radical.
      My country (NOT YOURS, OBVIOUSLY) does not strike against thousands of innocent civilians in the name of Religion. My Country acknowledges an individual’s right to practice which ever religion they see fit without being condemned for it.
      You are a self proclaimed liberal yet my impression of liberalism has always been people who want peace and well being for everyone yet your views are the same kind of views that provoke world wars.

      1. BigDaddy123 says:

        Agree!! StrongLiberalLogicalWoman is an absolute moron. Most people in the world don’t hate us. In my travels I’ve found the most liberal of foreigners take umbrage with our governmental policies. The wealthier and better educated welcome Americans quite warmly and cordially. I’ve traveled both for business and pleasure and with the exception of being pick pocketed, have not encountered hate or the loathing te afore mentioned moron has professed is the norm.

    5. zpunk says:

      OK, so the rise of the Roman Empire was was the fault of the US? we supplied the roman army with it’s weapons?
      Get real LIBERAL WOMAN,. no better yet, get an Education!

      1. StrongLogicalLiberalWoman says:

        I am far more intelligent and educated than ANY of you posting here today. I am a strong, knowledgable, wise, highly schooled woman. I have taken numerous college courses, have worlds of expereince, and been all over in nearly every country on the planet. I have spoken to people of all races and creeds and ALL of them HATE Americans because of AMERICAN LIKE ALL OF YOU! Just like Obama said, out of fear you cling to guns and religion! You the only people who matter are white men and the profit they can make and you don’t care what you do or take from the rest of the world or her people. Obama is working hard to repair our global image and apologize for the sheer atrocities we have commited in every single nation. Americans have hurt, maimed, killed, raped, abused, and used more precious resouces than any other tyrannical country in history..then we try to act like the heros and good guys? HA! The REST of the world, sees us MUCH MUCH different than that. They LOATH us, and the only thing all of YOU can say to them “too bad deal with it we are taking over.” Then out of your disgusting hatred for having a black man elected by the majority as our boss in chief, you just hate more and spread your FOX News based lies and gaffes, fear mongering, and threats. Then you let Palin, a woman who can’t even spell her name, encourages her daugthers to get knocked-up because she is anti-abotion and anti-birth control, and thinks Russia is outside her door and down the street , form politicial action commitees and get up abd publically critisize and put down our president over and over, spread horrible rumors and flat out lies, and mock and belittle him and you all cheer her on and want her as the next POTUS and the first female POTUS!! That is not only is INEXCUSEABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE! Us REAL Americans won’t tolerate it or put up with or ANY of you. You are not going to win this election. 67 MILLION Americans voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 and EVEN MORE will vote for him this cycle! Oh and btw , real good all that Palin anti-sex ed stuff went. First Bristol, not Willow. She was obviously pregnant at CPAC , miserable, embarassed and unhappy!

      2. JIM says:

        WERE you born stupid or did you have to work at it?
        YOU say Palin cant even spell her name. WHY is it, if someone is conservative, it automatically makes them ‘stupid’??? WHEN the case is, if SHE were stupid, why did she WIN AS MAYOR, then GOVENOR against esbatlishment candidates?
        As for Palin ‘enocouraging’ her daughters to ‘get pregnant’? GET REAL woman. Maybe if they “aborted their baby to avoid ruining their life.” as obama stated, that in your mind, would work. BUT MOTHER THERESA said,”It is poverty, that a child must die so you can live as you wish.”
        As for the rest of the world “LOATHING” us, fine. IF they dont like us, then they dont’ get OUR MONEY. IF you think the rest of the worlds opinions matter so much, MOVE there. SEE how a FEMINIST like yourself can stand. How often would you be groped by Saudi or Egptian men? Would you be able to work, if you were in Sri Lanka? Could you get a loan for a business, if you were in Ethiopia?
        FACE it, HERE in AMERICA, you have your best opportunity. I wouldn’t worry about what the rest of the disease infested, criminally poor, oligarchial rich think about us. IF their countries were so damn good, why do their people want to MOVE HERE?
        FINALLY, you complain about FOX news. IF you don’t like it, don’t watch it. BUT don’t say it presents a false picture or says false things. IF YOU can’t point them out, then the only thing youre complaining about is the LEFT to RIGHT WING slant of the channel. AND If it goes RIGHT, you complain. HERE’S A WAY to solve your problem. TURN ON RACHAEL MADDOW. You know, that MSNBC woman that 3 people on JEOPARDY couldn’t recognize because no one watches her.?
        OH, we don’t hate having a black man as the PRESIDENT or COMMANDER IN CHIEF. WHAT we care about is: THE 6 TRILLION he’s added or is going to add to the NATIONAL DEBT. AND the fact that the recession has lasted HIS WHOLE TERM. AND that he gave BILLIONS in crony capitalism to industries like SOLYNDRA.
        THAT, and he’s inept at being President, takes to many vacations, ect.

    6. BigDaddy123 says:

      You definitely need to be better educated. The history of warfare is far older than Christianity. Had you traveled the world as you stated you would have realized this and seen first hand the artifacts. Egyptians, Aryans (not the Hitler kind in case you were thinking that) Arabs, Mo old and Aztec Myans and Toltecs all engaged in warfare. Just to educate you.

      Turning away illeagle aliens is the right of any sovereign nation. To let you know, not that it is any of your business, I am the offspring of LEGAL immigrants. My parents applied to migrate to the U.S. they met with representatives, were investigated, interviewed, had to meet physical fitness and be free of illness. They needed a sponsor and actually took the time to learn ENGLISH when they arrived. They worked hard and did the best they could. I worked and paid for my education. I’ve traveled extensively and yes I have a degree. Your post is wrought with errors, bigotry and hatred. You profess to being liberal yet as with such proclamations you have preconceived notions as well as a closed mind.

      If someone wants to go and live in another country, there are rules to be followed. Any other attempt is illeagle. In Mexico hey jail illeagle immigrants with out due process. We don’t. Evidently you are severely illogical,uneducated and not worthy of further attention.

      1. StrongLogicalLiberalWoman says:

        Because you know I am right about everything I said and you can’t argue or disagree without looking like the under schooled fool that you are. What I stated are all FACTS. You are just mad I am a woman with a more worthy opinion than yours and clearly far more educated, worldly, and successful than you.

      2. Stuart says:

        BigDaddy123 Cain slew Able with a weapon(a rock) and that was the first killing in biblical history. I wonder if libturdwoman is talking about her BO when she calls herself strong. My wife is 5’4″ and in her 60s and still avery attractive woman. She is also smart as a whip,can handle a gun like a pro and is as Conservative as the day is long.

    7. Loves the USA says:

      You almost had me there for a second! Just trying to get things stirred up, are you? What a kidder!

      1. Loves the USA says:

        The above was @ StrongLogicalLiberalWoman, who is probably a 19 year old guy.

    8. The Rabid Russian says:

      I liked the part where you say how you are better educated than all the rest of us on this post. You made me laugh! Thank you! By the way it’s spelled LOATHE not LOATH and PEOPLE not PEPOLE…professor. Don’t hate us because you and your decedents live in caves with goats.

      PS: I bet you own a prayer mat!

      1. Danny81 says:

        It has interesting to read the opinions of those wjho actually see the source of the problem vs. those who are standing off to the side wringing their hands wondering why we can’t just help those poor people, or better still, stop seeking drugs. [LMAO]

        “Mi madre, mi padre! Juan is hitting me!!!” “Chica, kick him in the balls! He’ll stop!”

  147. Al Viggiani says:

    HEY, Calderon, how about getting your own Country under control, Our Country is now being run as a dictatorship. Our Department of Justice is as corrupt as you.We the people here in America aren’t as dumb as you might think. We get it. Try it and you along with anyone else will pay a BIG price. Your Country is unsafe for humans, thats why they are pouring across our border. Your Country is an OIL RICH Country. What are you doing to make your Country a place where the Mexican people can have a safe and prosperous life. NOTHING thats what. So keep your phony mouth shut and do for the Mexican people what you should have already done. You are a disgrace to your people, a mostly humble hard working inventive creative Jesus loving people. What a beautiful population you have, and you treat them like dirt.

  148. JB_Parrothead says:

    We should make a sign pointed in their direction in Spanish that says, “No more drugs, no more illegals!” Mexico needs to stop the flow of drugs and illegals across the border into the USA!

  149. David Cross says:

    We need to put a “No More Drugs sign up on the border. Their problems do not stem from guns. Their problem stems from they violence that is created by the Drug trade. The guns are incidental. If people are violent they will find a way to create violence. The Mexican government is inept and corrupt. They are unwilling to take carte of the violent drug cartels that have taken over. The answer is not less guns but more guns – but in the right hands. Arm the citizens that are being terrorised and things down their would eventually quiet down.

  150. Sick_of_liberal_lies says:

    Yep…all the guns in Mexico are the fault of the U.S….Bull!

    These cartels are multi billion dollar organizations. If they want guns, they go to the source and buy containers full at the wholesale price, not to gun stores in the U.S. one at a time.

    The lame stream media just continues to regurgitate the lies and propaganda created by the anti-gun zelots we’ve let take over the white house and department of justice.

    Read the true story of gun running and who is responsible. Search for “Fast and Furious gun scandal” on google and find out what the truth is.

  151. Lil' Brudder says:

    Tell to Obama to end his “fast and furious” gun running operation.

  152. Larry says:

    No hay más extranjeros ilegales.

  153. Joel says:

    AHHHH, You know why there is never any change in Mexico? Because you actually believe because the United States has weapons, that thats where all the guns must be coming from. Even though a majority of them seized were once in the hands of Mexico’s Military. How about no more corrupt government.

    1. Joel says:

      Ugh, while looking for the edit button I reported myself… Awesome…..

  154. Gun Lover says:

    Yes it’s all the evil U.S.’s fault because we all know that you can buy Automatic weapons at Wal-Mart, or “insert sporting goods chain here”, or even your run of the mill gun shop. Bad U.S. BAD!

  155. Joel says:

    AHHHH, You know why there is never any change in Mexico? Because you actually believe because the United States has a right to firearms that, thats where all the guns must be coming from. Even though a majority of them seized were once in the hands of Mexico’s Military. How about no more corrupt Mexican government/ Corrupt Mexican Military, Maybe if the citizen had the right to arms they could fight back against the drug cartels that have taken over the country. Instead of relying on the Mexican Military whose pockets are being lined by the cartels drug money.

  156. Not falling for it says:

    Dear StrongLogicalLiberalWoman ,
    Take your strong opinions and compare them to Hitler’s… If you hate everyone so badly for not sharing your beliefs and want to wipe them off the face of the earth… You and he are exactly the same.
    I understand that you are feeling alone in this world and need a hug but nobody can stand to be that near to you.

    You are a self proclaimed liberal yet my impression of liberalism has always been people who want peace and well being for everyone yet your views are the same kind of views that provoke world wars.


    1. StrongLogicalLiberalWoman says:

      You are clearly a raciast and are just upset a black man is your boss now. You are reported. Another racist, right-wing, Palin, Repuke , sexist nut GONE from the internet….

      1. Not falling for it says:

        I find it amusing how when some people hear actual fact that takes the wind out of their sails, they resort to childish name calling which proves them to be neither strong nor logical. I hate to break it to you, but reporting someone does NOT magically remove them from the internet. My Country (Obviously not Yours) also enjoys freedom of speech. I look forward to hearing your views on how you plan to revoke that constitutional right next.

  157. Sergio says:

    How is there violence problem our concern. I tell you want to Mr Calderon, yiou want us to deal with your violence problem, OK. Here is how we will do it. First we will officially declare the cartels of Mexico clear and present danger to the securitry of the united states. Next we will cross the Mexican border in force with the following: One U.S. Marine Division including Force Recon and air wings, 10 US Air Force Squadrons including bombers and fighters, three army divisions including helicopters and rangers, and two carrier battle groups deployed along the gulf of Mexico and the Pacific. Next we will be releving your military, judicial, and law enforcement agencies. and then we will proceed to hunt down and netralize all cartels, organized crime, and crooked officials. Do you really want us to do something, do you??????

  158. Kevin says:

    We should put a sign on our side of the border “no more illegals”

  159. chris says:

    Can’t we just rent a couple AC130’s and just drop a few presents on some of the cartels fortified mansions? Then just go Oops, my bad. these cartels are like roaches. You have to bomb the place.

  160. freedomunrestricted says:

    I would hazard to guess they are getting their full auto guns from the same place they are getting grenades. Don’t know to many places that sell them in the us.

  161. Dave says:

    Actually, I see this as a win for America. That’s at least 47,000 fewer potential illegal immigrants we have to support! Everybody wins!

  162. BigDaddy123 says:

    Well here we go again folks!!!!! Its always easier to blame others for your problems than taking care of it yourself. I have to wonder how many of the crushed firearms came to be there by the Fast and Furious debacle. They should have framed the sign with photos of Obama and Holder.

  163. NO MORE ILLEGALS says:




  164. Phillip Breske says:

    You know, I’ve been thinking about this sign and I agree: there is a problem. I say we erect a fence to stop the illegal flow of guns from America into Mexico. Make it a big fence so that no one can walk across the border carrying any guns of any kind. Hell, we’ll even man the border fence with our own people. I’m sure there is no shortage of Americans willing to keep the guns we love in our own country. We should not only check the vehicles going from the USA into Mexico, but also the cars and trucks coming INTO America to make sure that no one is carrying large sums of cash meant to buy these automatic weapons.

    A possible side effect of this fence will be the decreased flow of illegal immigrants into the USA, but the Mexican citizens have to accept some infringement on their freedoms if they want to stop the rampant flow of guns from the USA into Mexico.

    1. Ken says:

      This would also stop drugs! Oh that’s why we can’t do it.

  165. AG says:

    “He urged the United States to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico.” Isn’t that Calderon’s job? Why does he expect us to do it for him?

    1. The Rabid Russian says:

      Because he is powerless or afraid to take care of business. Everyone seems to think the USA is the solution to everyone else’s problems. It’s time to start weaning these infantile countries.

  166. MacKay D.A. says:

    …does that mean they have enough for now, we’ll order more in the future?

  167. A.Citizen says:

    The US should put up a sign at the Mexican border that says “No More Low-Lifes” and make it out of siezed drug cartel assets

  168. Stuart says:

    Hugo Chavez just paid Russia $54 million to build a factory to produce the AK-105(the latest itteration of the AK family). He will supply all rebells in South and Central America with weapons and Mex Cartels too.

    1. The Rabid Russian says:

      Anyone who pulls into a Chevron gas station is helping him do it.

  169. Ken says:

    It’s about time the Mexican Government speaks out for their people. The Mexican people must hold the Obama administration accountable for the innocent lives lost. The drug wars are hard enough on the people of Mexico. The last thing Mexicans needed was the American Government giving weapons to the bad guys. Eric Holder must go he lied to all of us.
    The cover ups and deaths were part of an orchestrated plan by these political leaders to force us into the UN gun treaty and to strip the second amendment.
    Thing to do: Start by learning more about operation fast and furious. Join forces with law abiding Americans and support the constitution of the US including the second amendment. The freedom and prosperity we enjoy come from that paper. It is after all the reason you come to America and prosper.
    Know this , as a white American, I know why your here. I don’t begrudge you like the Media would have you believe. God created all of us equal.

  170. The Rabid Russian says:

    Why don’t they ban guns in Mexico? Oh yea, they are already banned. So I guess the next move Mr. Calderon, since you are powerless to control the people in your own country, is to try to control citizens of another one. You are weak, and therefore, are trying to blame others for your shortcomings. Don’t blame the neighbors for the mess in your backyard.

  171. Corrupt says:

    Our country is full of zombies, that’s why we’re in the !@#$ hole that we are in. Its disgusting how easily the media and politics hang carrots in front of our eyes to hide the truth. Its even more disgusting how they get away with it, inciting violence, racism, and worst of all ignorance. Keep chasing the carrot zombies. When you all wake up, the U.S. wont be the same and you will all reap what you sow.

  172. shawn says:

    how about we keep the guns and they keep the mexicans and drugs two for one thats pretty good deal to me

  173. montreal graphic design says:

    Please don’t say that you simply just do it yourself…I do too and am not in search of that info. . . What do you search for when you are evaluating a webweb site design company to determine if you need to use them?.
