I am so confused

This link has a good summary of Mexico's gun laws it appears everything being bought by the cartels is already illegal for Mexican citizens to own. How is it that more laws restricting people from owning arms is going to stop these drug cartels? Is making them double super illegal going to deter a multi billion dollar industry from protecting it's product or is this more crap from people trying to look like they are doing something to ensure they can continue to feed at the public trough. If you want to decrease drug war violence how about we legalize them. Few liquor wholesalers use violence to settle territorial disputes. Few drunks steal to support their habit. 90% of the price of drugs like cocaine and marijuana are because it is a demand supplied by black markets. You would think the brilliant minds we elect would look at history and stop repeating the same mistakes.
