Mexico is plagued by drug-related violence. This is not news. Because of that violence, some anti-liberty politicians have advocated restricting the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms because of the possibility that drug cartels might arm themselves with guns purchased in the United States. Some politicians may even have ordered BATFE to facilitate those sales.

Odd, then, that no politician has yet called for the banning of cellular phones, portable radios, antennae,  repeaters and solar panels, all of which were used by the Zetas cartel to create a secure communications network used for command and control of its criminal enterprise.

Did you know you can walk into a celluar phone dealer and buy an unlimited number of high-powered mobile phones without so much as a background check? Many of these phones can handle multiple calls at once, and some are even designed for use by young children. You can even buy prepaid phones that are completely untraceable!

Did you know terrorists have cellular phones? Why has no politician called for a ban on these obviously dangerous devices?
