are not “racist.”
The result is a demanding—and

tells us otherwise. During 2007 and
2008, Mexico had an agreement on
sending captured guns to the US for
identification. During that period, it
sent a sample of 11,000 to the ATF
for identification. Of that number,
the Bureau managed to identify
6,000, and 90 percent of those guns
were from the US.
In any case, the drug cartels have
plenty of money and are good at
discreet international shipments.
They could buy guns anywhere they
like. Often, they needn’t bother to
look outside Mexico. The police are
famous for hawking off the guns
they capture.

Although each cartel has its person-

ality, and chiefs cut distinctive figures,
drug gangs have a lot in common. Like
many criminal groups, they are often run
by brothers or other extended families.
