Texas Rangers assess cartel gun violence on border

Nuevo Laredo – It lasted from two to three hours, the rolling gun assault between members of two cartels duking it out for turf in a war to dominate smuggling routes.

The Rangers, who headquarter their border intelligence center in Austin, estimated that the Mexican soldiers in the two private armies are well-equipped, familiar with their weapons and body armor, and attacked from a distance with high-powered assault rifles without advancing on their targets.

That shows a high level of discipline and training, according to the Rangers.
