Two days ago, Mexican President Felipe Calderon unveiled a “No More Weapons!” billboard made with pulverized firearms. And it was erected near the US border in Ciudad Juarez, one of the more balmy, peaceful cities in the Northern Hemisphere. Which is what this story is giving me, a hemi:
Mexican President Felipe Calderon glances at a sign (made of destroyed guns) reading “No More Weapons” near the Cordova-Americas border in Juarez. The army pulverized 3,091 rifles, 3,697 guns, 21 grenades and 456,308 bullets.
I’m not sure how to say the word chutzpah in Spanish. I seriously doubt some of those AKs came from the El Paso Bass Pro Shop. And I shudder to think what signs we might build on our side.
