Maybe the US Needs to Adopt Mexican Style Gun Control

If the above statement surprises you, join the club. Had it not been for Cam Edwards of, I would not have known that Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke offered the suggestion at a press conference held Tuesday, March 24th, to announce the release of its new report Exporting Gun Violence: How Our Weak Gun Laws Arms Criminals in Mexico and America.

None of the press reports Cam found (and there were only a hand full that I could find from a Google search) happened to mention that statement by Helmke. Just more proof that should be your first source for all news related to the Second Amendment (and heck - most other news worth knowing).

Cam pointed out through an audio clip that AP reporter, Suzanne Gamboa, attended the press conference and even asked Helmke a question. That fact was mysteriously missing when she wrote this article. She did not mention the press conference nor did she mention his incredible state about the US needing to enact Mexican style gun control.

Given the violence across the border reported almost daily, maybe Gamboa should have asked how those gun control laws have worked our for Mexico.

If you would like to take a look at the restrictions the Mexican people live under that Helmke loves so much, check out Dave Kopel's site.

If you want to catch Cam's radio program, you can listen 9PM - Midnight on Sirius Satellite radio Patriot Channel 144 or on the web at

Hat tip to Sebastian for the YouTube clip of Helmke.
