Obama to Travel to Mexico

By Don Morgan

President Barack Obama will head to Mexico Wednesday for meeting with the leaders of that country, as well as Canada. 

The leaders are expected to touch on a number of issues--with one of the hot topics likely to be American weapons being taken to Mexico--and used by violent criminal there. 

"A lot of the drug violence that they see--particularly the use of AR-15's, automatic weapons and semi-automatic weapons in the high caliber range is fueled by guns purchased by straw urchasers here in the United States" said Rice University Political Science Department Chair Mark Jones. 

"That fuels the violence, as wella s the large number of civilian and police casualties (in Mexico)" Jones said.
