4. Drug Cartels
Gun control laws will do more harm to the rights of the legal U.S citizen, than it will to those obtaining weapons from the cartel to carry out its drug operations. The Cartel’s heavy presence at the U.S-Mexican border has accumulated the illegal flow of weapons in the United States. As the Border Patrol Union has stated that “our immigration laws has given drug cartels the opportunity to expand their territory across America.” Fortunately, states like Texas, Arizona and New Mexico have a well-armed public. However “California’s laws designed to deter illegal gun trafficking are more rigorous than those of Arizona, New Mexico, or Texas, yet it still has the fourth highest crimes-gun export rate,” according to a brief report by “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”.
