"Lone Wolf," Glendale Gun Store, Tops in Firearms Recovered at Mexico Crimes Scenes, Newspaper Reports

Lone Wolf Trading Company

, a Glendale gun store, leads a top-12 list

by the Washington Post

of traced crime-scene guns recovered in Mexico.

The Post conducted its own Wikileaks-like expose, apparently, defying a 2003 federal law that's supposed to keep the names of gun dealers hidden from the public.

Two other Arizona stores made the list: J&G Sales in Prescott and Sprague's Sports in Yuma.

Most of the stores on the list were Texas. 


The article reports that about 60,000 guns recovered at crime scenes in Mexico trace back to the United States somehow, but the U.S. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Bureau could only link 25 percent of those to specific dealers and buyers.

Of the total traced to the Post's top-12 list, 185 guns came from Lone Wolf.

Neither the Post nor law enforcement authorities are accusing the top sellers of Mexican "crime guns" of intentionally arming criminals.

Guns, whether you're talking Glocks, AKs, or whatever, are over-the-counter products in the United States.
