Calderón calls on U.S. to stop flow of weapons …

In an interview on CNN, President Calderón renewed his call on the U.S. to crack down on the illegal trafficking of arms to Mexico. He said it was not a question of new laws, but of enforcing existing U.S. law.  He said more than 80% of the drug cartels’ weapons came from the U.S., and that his government had seized 66,000 weapons, half of them assault rifles, in the last three years. He also urged re-enactment of the U.S. assault weapons ban, while acknowledging that this would be politically difficult. (Reforma 3/29)
