Blowback

It's nice to see the US getting serious about stopping the flow of deadly weaponry across the border with Mexico. Of course, that probably has something to do with the fact that we're talking about weapons - specifically grenades - moving north:

The Mexican government says 1,600 grenades were seized in Mexico last year, a 170 percent increase from 594 in 2007. Already, 950 grenades have been recovered this year.

And there is evidence that those grenades are making their way north.

...The ATF feels so strongly about the threat grenades pose to the United States that they have sent bomb technicians to Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador to train authorities there to identify and track grenades.

Grenades. Man, that's some savage shit. But stop us if you saw this part coming...

The United States and South Korea rank as the top two producers of the grenades seized in Mexico, according to the ATF.
