We have yet one more example of how evil men will always get guns and weapons. If they cannot steal them or purchase them they will manufacture them. This story should concern every American citizen.

During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul and Jarrad discuss the most interesting things they saw at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show.

Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will answer a question we get frequently; is a knife viable for self-defense. Paul has been involved in martial training for more than 30 years and has some insight to offer.

From www.breitbart.com:

Intelligence reports indicate that one of Mexico’s most dangerous cartels continues to increase their capabilities by manufacturing weapons. The arms are built in clandestine factories with advanced technology and practices.

Despite being considered a younger cartel, Mexican intelligence information provided to Breitbart Texas labels the Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) as a violence-prone organization with higher operational capabilities than any other group. As part of their expansion strategy, CJNG supplies weapons to other armed organizations at war with the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas.

It is estimated that CJNG has at least 40 armed cells spread out throughout the country which, in addition to having access to powerful weapons and artillery, are trained by former military forces. As Breitbart Texas reported, Mexican authorities sounded the alarm on CJNG gunmen for being trained by former members of the Colombian terrorist group FARC, an entity known for making of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

From www.indiatimes.com:

When one thinks of Delhi, one thinks of our country’s legislative capital, home to the Parliament, the Supreme Court and our nation’s top leaders and policy makers. On the surface, it appears to be a relatively lawful city, far from the infamous gang violence of Mumbai. It may come as a surprise that the city has of late become a safe haven for a huge illegal gun trafficking industry. From .315 and 12 bore pistols to assault rifles and AK-47, all sophisticated firearms are first brought here from manufacturers in bulk and then distributed to local suppliers based in the national capital or its surrounding areas. The heavy crowd in the city helps arms supplier escape security agencies’ attention, thereby providing them a safe entry and exit.

The recoveries of fire arms made by the Delhi Police in the past four years give a disturbing picture. A total of 388 firearms have been seized till June 15 this year. While in 2015 and 2014, this number was at 431 and 868 respectively, a total of 700 and 586 firearms were recovered in 2013 and 2012 respectively.
