Campaign against arms smuggling between the United States and Mexico

Mexican and American activists have launched a campaign urging the U.S. president, Barack Obama, to halt the arms trade between the U.S. and Mexico. The promoters of the initiative warn that 84% of guns confiscated at crime scenes in Mexico come from the United States and in a letter to Obama, demand that the U.S. ban the import of assault weapons, to prevent them being used subsequently in smuggling.
