There Goes the Neighborhood

Cops in Mexico City busted ten (alleged) troublemakers yesterday, and confiscated what I believe the kids today would call "mad gunz" - including a Barrett .50-caliber rifle, which is especially handy for piercing steel at 2000 yards. This kind of thing happens every couple of days now, but the twist this time is that these guys had instructions to deliver this arsenal to Querétaro. How cool!

The good news is that they seem to be affiliated with the Sinaloa Cartel; if this state is going somehow lose its neutrality in the cartel turf wars, I'd definitely vote to throw our lot in with Sinaloa. (Note to Gov. Garrido: Perhaps a public referendum is in order?) They're some serious badasses, sure, but those Gulf Cartel dudes are fucking crazy.

[Ed. note to Gulf Cartel: Burro Hall is, of course, prepared to work with whomever the eventual winner may be. Opinions expressed above do not necessarily reflect those of Burro Hall management, their families, or their dog. (We can't vouch for the cat).]
