Calderon Calls for Restoring Assault Weapons Ban

Yeah, this is going to go down well...

Calderon Calls for Restoring Assault Weapons Ban - The Caucus Blog - "President Felipe Calderon of Mexico argued before a joint meeting of Congress today that his country was making extraordinary investments in confronting drug-fueled crime – a problem that also affects the United States— as he implored lawmakers in Washington to restore a ban on the assault weapons often used by traffickers.

He also assailed as a “terrible idea” the new Arizona law that allows law enforcement officials to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally, repeating the criticism he made Wednesday, when he spent much of the day with President Obama. Mr. Obama himself called the law “misdirected.”"
