Re: Loopholes let gun smuggling to Mexico flourish
Given the lack of hard data from Mexico, we can't calculate a precise figure for what portion of crime guns have been traced to the U.S.
Based on the best evidence we can find so far, we conclude that the 90 percent claim made by the president and others in his administration lacks a basis in solid fact. But we also conclude that the number is at least double what Fox News has reported, based on its reporters' mistaken interpretation of ATF testimony.
Whether the number is 90 percent, or 36 percent, or something else, there's no dispute that thousands of guns are being illegalIy
into Mexico by way of the United States each year.
