Obama administration's odd gun trafficking theme

Chris Burgard:

Back in 2009, I was in Del Rio, Texas, attending a Texas Border Sherriff’s Coaliton conference. During one particular Q and A session, the Obama liaison from the Department of Homeland Security kept focusing on stopping the southern flow of guns and money into Mexico.

That felt odd. Yes, stopping the flow of money back into Mexico would hurt the Mexican drug cartels. And yes, some weapons purchased from US gun stores were ending up in Mexico. However, hand grenades, RPGs, explosives and the vast amount of military hardware that the cartels were using were not available at Walmart, not even in Texas. The cartels have an unlimited supply of cash. They can purchase whatever they desire on the international arms black market.
The folks that didn’t have sufficient cash and resources were the good guys--the men and women in US law enforcement that are tasked with holding the line....
... 
That is a part of the story that the media seemed to ignore outside of a few like William La  Jeunesse who exposed the 90 percent deceit that the DOJ was using to push for more restrictions on the sell of fire arms.  It was already obvious that the heavy weapons were not coming from the US yet the cartels had an abundant supply of them.
