Submission + - CIFTA Treaty and You (infowars.com)

cagrin writes: "From this article discussing Obama bringing up support for CIFTA Treaty with Mexican President Felipe Calderon:

"Obama has promised Mexican President Felipe Calderon that he would urge the Senate to take up CIFTA. He is doing this under the cover of the drug cartel violence in Mexico. Obama and Calderon quoted a statistic echoed by the corporate media that 90% of the weapons seized in Mexican raids were purchased from U.S. gun shops and a reason why the U.S. needs to ratify this treaty. In fact, this is a lie — only a mere 17% of guns found at Mexico crime scenes have been traced to the U.S."

Lou Dobb's also discusses the affect it would have on 2nd amendment rights if ratified in Senate.
