It's got to be acknowledged that all the US Assault weapons in Mexico is an issue of Gun Smuggling. I would grant that they only have to be smuggled a short distance, but if Gun Smuggling can't be stopped, assault weapons can't be stopped period. Making an assault weapon isn't as difficult as it used to be.

Wow, I actually found the story from Portland Oregon years ago where this father and son were making Mac10 and Mac11 machine pistols in their own illegal factory. I remember seeing this on TV. It affected my whole opinion on Gun Control.

A two-person assault weapons factory folks.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
