On Saturday, the Caravan for Peace went shopping for guns at a show in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They learned that it takes less than 5 minutes to buy an AK-47. After a quick police check just provide proof that's you're a resident of the state, and for US$1200 you can head out with an AK-47 over your shoulder. One of the goals of the Caravan for Peace is to stop the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico. But the gun dealers advised Sicilia that he might need a gun for protection in Mexico. "We come for peace, and they sell us war", he quipped.
