JUAREZ - The president of Mexico is spending tonight in Juarez.

Earlier this evening, Felipe Calderon installed a big sign near the Bridge of the Americas that says "no more weapons."

President Calderon criticized the U.S. for allowing too many illegal weapons into Mexico.

"No more sentiments. No more weapons. Mexico needs your help in order to stop this terrible violence we are suffering, and the best way to do that is by stopping the flow of assault weapons toward Mexico. No more weapons to Mexico,” said Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

Mexican soldiers built the sign with three tons of weapons seized by the army.

This is a very important issue affecting everyone. Many have joined together to sign a petition asking President Obama to make changes to help curb the flow of weapons into Mexico.

We Should make a sign for this idiot here in El Paso that reads "No More Drugs" He says our guns are killing his people, his drugs are killing our kids and their future. GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE, STUPID PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE

Aside from marijuana (which does not kill anybody according to some), Mexico does not grow any of the other more powerful drugs that the U.S. consumes. Mexico just helps in the supply. Just like a girl that has an unplanned/unexpected pregnancy and blames the boyfriend, this blaming Mexico alone for our kids consuming drugs is STUPID itself.
