Houston is the Number One Source of Mexican Drug Gang Weaponry

"Texas has 8,000 gun dealers, and in the city of Houston there are 1,500. The pattern we’re seeing is that they’ll go to the shows to buy ammo and supplies, combat gear, and so on, and go to the dealers to get their weapons, using straw buyers for $50 per gun, on up. They come, and they just keep coming back. It’s simple because we make it simple. There’s no black market in the U.S. The guns are not being stolen—it’s all legal.”
Dewey Webb, special agent in charge, Houston division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

So, that's on the table, too.

And the table has some nice red white and blue bunting on it.

Not surprising at all. There are gun shows scheduled to take place in Houston every month between Nov 2010 and Jun 2011. EVERY SINGLE MONTH. At the 2 million sq. ft. George R. Brown Convention Center.

That article was frightening.

Shit terrifying.

Why pay (?) to enter a gun show when you can order by phone? My Amex number was sniperscoped one day– and within hours, an order for thousands of $ worth of guns placed @ World of Weapons.
Tell me it\'s impossible and I\'ll show you the statement. (The ammo was pretty reasonable!)
