    what portion of the guns used in "mass murders" (or of those illegally transported to Mexico) are "gun show guns" as opposed to "legitimte" dealer sales?

      However, I think that the number of guns purchased from dealers going into Mexico would be small. Yes, an organized group of people could go to Wal-Marts all over Arizona purchasing assault rifles and then immediately reselling them to agents of Los Zetas. However, if these people were legally purchasing assault rifles by the hundreds or the thousands, somebody would notice.
