The Mexican Ambassador Can Go Screw Himself

When the ambassador of a neighboring nation disparages our Second Amendment rights and our commitment to them, in my humble opinion, he can go screw himself. The Ambassador of Mexico to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, suggested today that our concerns about his country's attempts to denigrate our Second Amendment rights is "gobbledygook".
In a slap at gun-rights advocates, the Mexican ambassador to the U.S. dismissed accusations that Mexico is seeking to undermine the Second Amendment in order to curb the influx of U.S.-purchased guns.

“There is an urban myth out there that somehow the Mexican government ... is seeking to lobby against and destroy the rights enshrined in the Second Amendment,” said Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan. “This is gobbledygook.”
He also praised the Obama Administration's multiple rifle purchase reporting requirement in the Southwest border states but then said that the cartel's will just look elsewhere.

Well, duh! They have already looked elsewhere and that elsewhere is your own army as well to Guatemala and quite possibly Chavez's Venezuela.

If you would like to give the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary from the Republic of Mexico a piece of your mind, the Embassy's phone number is 202-728-1600 and you can send an email through this form on their website.

According to the article, representatives from the NRA and NSSF didn't take his comments lying down.
Sarukhan was making excuses for Mexico's failure to curb police, judicial and military corruption that undermines its pursuit of the cartels, they said.

“There's finger-pointing at America but no mention of the corruption so pervasive in Mexico,” said Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the National Rifle Association, when asked for reaction to Sarukhan's comments.

“Restricting the Second Amendment rights of Americans is neither an option nor a solution to Mexico's internal crime problem,” said Lawrence Keane, general counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents gun manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers.


  1. There is a simple solution, Senor Ambassador: Seal the border.

  2. Legalize marijuana and the drug cartels would not be making money to buy the guns and then they could go work for 50 cents an hour. Sorry I am not worried about other countries and their inability to take care of what is going on there. I am worried about what is going on in my country. We are losing our freedoms to ignorant politicians and ignorant people who think guns are evil. Well guess what? Guns are what made this country what it is.

  3. one must be real careful when one tells another to "go screw yourself" when they do that they just might get another A$$HOLE just like them
