They belonged to a fundamentalist Mormon group called the LeBaron Clan. When the US govt cracked down on polygamy they fled the US to Mexico in the 1940's

In the 1970's and 1980's the head of the family Ervil LeBaron was called the "Mormon Manson"

Ervil shot and killed his brother in 1972 after an argument of leadership of their group. He was convicted, but it was overturned. In 1977 he was arrested again and convicted in the murder of a rival polygamist leader Rulon Allred

in 1993 the group had 3 members convicted of the death of 3 of the former members (one an 8 yr old child) in Texas who had fled the group from Mexico but in the trial it was argued they were expected to have killed 30 former members of the group who had left but couldn't prove it.

In 2009 one of the family members who was an anti violence activist was shot and killed after speaking out against drug Cartels after they had kidnapped his brother and held him for a $1 million ransom.

The LDS is distancing themselves from those killed this week in Mexico saying they were not part of the LDS church.

So trump offered to assist the President of Mexico in fighting these murderous cartels. Here is a suggestion: make the sale and providing of US made firearms to foreign buyers a federal crime. They get their guns from us. And while you are at it, mr president, why not have that same level of concern for the thousands of Americans who are killed by guns every day here in our own country.

You going to arrest Barry O for that little gun running scheme during his administration?

I get the passion on the gun issue but you might want to check those facts.

I’m confused. Which one of those murdered women or children was Ervil LaBaron?
Seems a lot like victim-blaming to run interference for the cartel.

As far as guns go, the people who only get shot to death by these animals are the lucky ones.

Actually, due to fast and furious, you can thank Obama and holder for most of those guns. I don't believe we've sold them on a regular basis to druglord's before or since. But, you know, facts.

Probably "fast and furious" guns supplied by your black jesus and his AG henchman. Good question to be asking yourself is why a great majority of gun deaths are in liberal held bastions of desolation. Take out the democrats killing/shooting democrats and the US is one of the safest countries on earth.

Also in spite of your ridiculously ignorant hyperbole, on average 100 people die by gunfire daily with approximately 300 shot. Subtract the # in your leftist strongholds and see what you get. Troll
