The Lying NYTimes, Again

More lies, half-truths, and deceptions from the NYSlimes regarding the failed state of Mexico and its problems with drug cartels' guns.

Sending straw buyers into American stores, cartels have stocked up on semiautomatic AK-47 and AR-15 rifles, converting some to machine guns, investigators in both countries say. They have also bought .50 caliber rifles capable of stopping a car and Belgian pistols able to fire rifle rounds that will penetrate body armor.

In reality?

The BATF does not allow the manufacture or importation of firearms that can easily be modified into machine guns, and those drop-in parts which can quickly change a semi-automatic design are treated and as strictly monitored and regulated as machine guns themselves under U.S. law

And there's plenty more at the link.

Best way to read NYT stories? Don't. But if you do, apply the same standards you do to reading statements from Bill Clinton--that is, look for the lies and weaseling.
