Please make sure you read the statement correctly. I said black market (illegal) guns. ATF helps fight illegal gun trade, BUT like the drug trade going on is damn near impossible to stop and is still very real in the country. We also do not OWN the arms manufacturing market. The swiss, germans, italians, russians all make weapons. Some of those countries trade with anyone to make a buck.
So what your saying is that since other countries produce arms, we arent the leaders in that marketplace? Secondly, do you really think every illegal gun on the streets is smuggled into the country? The large majority of people that I know that illegally possess guns, just got someone who could purchase it with no problem in another state.
