Mexico has only one gun store and stringent gun controls, neither of which prevented the murders of 3,080 in that country in June alone.

On July 5, 2019, Breitbart News reported that heavily gun-controlled Mexico saw, on average, 94 homicides a day for the first six months of 2019, many of which are firearm-related. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the U.S. witnessed roughly 53 homicides a day in 2017, approximately 40 of which were firearm-related.

On average, the U.S. sees 30-33 firearm-related homicides a day.

The Associated Press reports there were “3,080 killings in June” in Mexico and a total of “17,608 killings” in gun-controlled Mexico during the first six months of 2019.

There is only one gun store in Mexico, and it is run by the government. CBS News reportsthat the government store the only place a firearm can be “legally” purchased. All firearms must be registered and the type and number of guns one can own are highly regulated.

The University of Sydney’s GunPolicy.org lists Mexico’s gun control as “restrictive,” noting that the right to possess firearms is only “conditionally guaranteed” by the country’s constitution.

Mexico gun controls also focus on ammunition, limiting law-abiding “firearm owners … to possess 500 cartridges in .22 caliber, 1,000 cartridges for shotguns, and 200 cartridges for other permitted firearms.”

Despite these controls, Mexico’s current number of homicide represents an increase of 5.3 percent from the same time last year.

Mexico’s Strict Gun Laws Warning-Sign-No-Guns-Mexican-Border-750x375.jpg

Mexico’s gun laws are similar to those in countries like the United Kingdom that do not tolerate possession of certain lethal firearms. This is in stark contrast to the laws of the United States, whose constitution allows citizens to generally own and carry firearms on their person.

Foreigners visiting Mexico must be particularly careful with this, as Mexican laws on importation and possession of firearms and/or ammunition are strictly enforced at border crossings and on spot-checks, for example, at vehicle checkpoints on major highway routes through the country.

But, like they claim in Chicago and in NYC, it's because of the imported guns... you know... like those that the President sent to the drug cartel murderers Mexico.... Just not the current president.

Way too many stories of folks traveling to Mexico and had a .22lr round somewhere from a range trip in the US and off you go to prison. If you go down there to hunt, let the guide provide everything; just easier that way.

The only time I had traveled to Mexico is by cruise ship, it is too just risky to go another way.
