The Mexican problem

No, I'm not talking about the immigration problem here in the US... Apparently Mexico is saying that they have a huge problem with guns being smuggled in from the US and being used to kill cops...

From Saysuncle:
At least 80 percent of all of the weapons used by drug traffickers in Mexico to kill one another as well as police and soldiers come from the U.S., Mexican officials say. They’ve repeatedly asked the U.S. government for more help in stopping the flow of weapons from Texas and other border states into Mexico.
And then they go on to cry about the super duper "cop killer" FN 5.7:
Particularly alarming to law enforcement was the seizure last year of an FN Herstal 5.7 mm pistol chambered to fire a bullet that can penetrate body armor.
I guess they don't know that the ammo that penetrates the body armor is next to impossible to get... In addition every center fire rifle in the world will go right through standard police body armor... And we best not tell them about this fine piece of European history that will exactly the same thing... And we probably should also leave out the fact that they can be purchased for less than $200...

I have a suggestion for Mexico to fix the problem... How about they shut down the border!!!

I mean it is obvious that the US is either incapable or unwilling to fix the problem on our end...
