A 2009 report released by the federal government stated that 87 percent of the guns seized by Mexican law enforcement agencies between 2004-2009 were traced back to the United States.

By now, this is common knowledge (or at least it certainly should be, especially among "authorized journalists"), so I was please to see that someone had already put them in their place by citing this article.
