Government corruption is to blame, not US gun sellers

Good commentary from David Codrea
Who in their right mind believes Mexican police and military personnel rely on "straw purchasers" at U.S. gun shops and gun shows to obtain military-grade firepower? Who in their right mind does not believe these corrupt LEOs and soldiers haven't exploited their access to state-procured weapons--to the advantage of their drug cartel patrons?
I sometimes think the reason Obama dropped his push for repeal of the Tihart Amendment is the data would reveal just how many of the guns seized from the cartels were originally from DOJ approved sales or DOD "gifts" to the Mexican government.
