Mexico President Felipe Calderon: ‘No more weapons!’
CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — 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.
‘Mexico needs your help’
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.

Mexico leader’s message to US: ‘No more weapons!’
For the longest time I blasted Felipe Calderon over his claims that American guns were flooding his nation. I refused to believe that American guns, gun dealers and gun shows were, at least in part, responsible for many of the weapons that had fallen into the hands of cartels.
I called Calderon an ineffectual leader, I called him a LIAR. I thought he was simply a man looking to assign blame and not accept responsibility for the ills of his nation. I thought him to be an America hating Mexican.
I simply could not believe that Mexican cartel members would, or could, obtain automatic weapons, and other weapons, on the U.S. market. I believed that our BATF had a better grasp of the situation and would not allow such to happen.
I advocated that gun shows and gun dealers in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona wouldn’t jeopardize their freedom and their Class III Federal Firearms Licences to make those sales.
I adamantly insisted that drug dealers would obtain their weapons from former European bloc dealers and Black Market dealers, at a much lower price than that of U.S. dealers.
Then we heard of Operation Gun Walker and Operation Fast and Furious, and we heard of the murders of DEA Agent Jaime Zapata and Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry.
Now we hear the LIES of Barack Hussein Obama, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano et al. as they duck, dodge and cover one another as they try to find some kind of explanation that the American public will buy to justify their actions in initiating Fast and Furious.
So far, they have failed miserably, on ALL counts.
This is an election year my friends, and I don’t care if you call yourself an Independent, a Republican or a Conservative, here’s the HARD truth, Obama and Company must go, and we have to make it happen. America can’t stand 4 more years of this BS.
