In the statement, the party claims that: "It's becoming more and more unclear whether the U.S. government even wants the violence to decrease. More drug violence means more jobs for federal drug agents. More drug arrests mean more jobs for prison construction and management contractors. There are a lot of people whose income depends on a big, thriving, unsuccessful War on Drugs."
One thing I would add, is that the federal gun grabbers probably routinely smuggle guns into Mexico for the sole purpose of justifying their intentions to impose more gun control here in the US. These are probably the same people who claim that most guns used by Mexican drug cartels come from the USA. Well duh!, if the US government is smuggling weapons into Mexico, that make perfect sense. If true, this suggests that the US goverment doesn't give a flying crap about preventing drug violence or gun smuggling, but is more interested in actually CAUSING more violence in order to justify the disarmament of American citizens.
If this sounds like a conspiracy theory, that is because I watched Revenge of the Sith, and this totally the kind of scheme Chancellor Palpatine would have conconcted if he had been trying to disarm the Republic, only he would have shipped blasters to Endor to trigger a full-on Ewok civil war in order to justify funding for a new fleet of Star Destroyers.
