More than a dozen San Antonio-area residents have been arrested on charges that they bought high-powered tactical rifles for the Zetas in Mexico.

Federal agents were still hauling some of the defendants into federal court in San Antonio this week after obtaining federal indictments in Del Rio.

Thirteen were in custody Monday, charged with making false statements during the purchase of a firearm and/or aiding and abetting the smuggling of goods from the United States, records show.

The indictments said the defendants bought M4s and DTI-15s, both rifles of 5.56-caliber whose primary target audience is current and former military members, according to several ads on the Internet. It was not immediately clear if any of the defendants had military backgrounds, but records say they are accused of buying a total of 18 of the rifles at gun stores in San Antonio beginning Oct. 11.

Most are alleged “straw buyers” – U.S. residents with clean backgrounds accused of buying the guns for someone else. One of them, Salvador Martinez, age unavailable, is accused of being a facilitator because he obtained four DTI-15 rifles despite having no legal immigration status in the U.S. and having a domestic violence conviction.

Also charged are Abigail Sabrina Treviño, 22; Wayne R. Dixon, 53; Rey David De La O-Rodriguez, age unavailable; Jasmine Leeann Gordo, 22; Frank Hernandez, age unavailable; Louis Christopher Martinez, 24; Jessica Marie Cortes, 22; Patricio Nova, 32; Amanda Lopez, age unavailable; Denise Ordaz, 19; Elisa Hernandez Ramirez, 24, of Devine; and Jonathan Paul Barrera, 28 of Del Rio.

The US has to clean up its own criminal government now. I don't want to see anything happen to these Z scum until something is done with those piece of unamerican filth obama and DHS. When there is justice enforced on the criminal ruling class in the US then we can begin dealing out justice to the Zs. Until then we are like little children laughing and pretending and living in a fantasy world.
