Guns needed in Tuscon


Always thought Tucson used to be in Arizona, according to Google maps, it still is ;-) But UPI says Tesxas. Have looked on Google maps, for any reference to Tucson in Texas, but nothing.

Guns needed 915 times last week.
That translates into a shooting every 12 minutes

They are shocking statistics. I would only expect that many casualties if there was a war.

There was a war last year in Nagorno Karabakh and there was just over 6,000 deaths.

The countries concerned were Ahmenia and Azerbaijan. For those that don't know where that is. It is the space between Turkey and Iran in the south and Georgia and Russia in the North.

The U.S exists in an alternative reality (still in the wild West). But, they want to live like that, otherwise they would have changed the laws by now.
Who are we to tell them not to kill each other, when obviously the majority of the voters wants to continue on that path?

So indeed, more guns are needed everywhere in the wild, wild West.

Mexico to sue U.S.-based gunmakers over flow of arms across border.
MEXICO CITY — The Mexican government said Wednesday it plans to file legal action against several major U.S.-based gun manufacturers, alleging that lax controls contribute to the illegal flow of weapons over the border, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

The unusual suit is expected to be filed in U.S. federal court in Boston, since some of the manufacturers are headquartered in Massachusetts, according to the documents. The suit — which seeks unspecified financial compensation from the companies — does not target the U.S. government.

Mexican authorities believe U.S.-made weapons have fueled the explosive violence that has transformed parts of the country over the past decade. Around 2.5 million illicit American guns have poured across the border in that time period, according to a Mexican government study released last year. Legal gun sales in Mexico are tightly restricted.

he lawsuit maintains that the U.S. arms manufacturers “are conscious of the fact that their products are trafficked and used in illicit activities against the civilian population and authorities of Mexico,” according to a document from the Foreign Ministry.


Can't find it elsewhere so only https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/mexico-guns-us-lawsuit/2021/08/04/181fdbaa-f52d-11eb-a636-18cac59a98dc_story.html available.

Kids in the U.S. need more guns to be left out for them.
