Mexico loosens gun control

Mexico loosens gun control

More guns, less crimeOne reason Mexico is so violent is that it has really strict gun control. Common people cannot defend themselves from well-armed criminals. The criminals don’t follow the country’s gun laws because they’re already outlaws.

The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana wrote:

Don’t bring firearms or ammunition across the border into Mexico.

“Don’t carry a knife, even a small pocketknife, on your person in Mexico.

“You may become one of dozens of U.S. Citizens who are arrested each month for unintentionally violating Mexico’s strict weapons laws.”

But Mexico’s gun laws are starting to loosen. The NY Daily News just reported:

“Vigilantes were give assault weapons and new blue uniforms in western Mexico on Saturday, which was the deadline for militia members to join the police or face arrest.

“Self-defensive groups have been on the rise since last year, arming themselves for war against murderous drug cartels terrorizing entire towns and regions.

“Farmers formed long lines at a cattle ranch in Tepalcatepec to receive fresh blue uniforms and AR-15s as new members of regional police in the agriculturally rich state of Michoacan, where the vicious Knights Templar run a vast network of human and narcotics trafficking and widespread extortion of villagers and small businesses.”

It’s too bad the government is co-opting the vigilantes instead of just legalizing all guns. But the government’s action still is a concession that the way to reduce violence is to arm the victims of the criminal gangs.

Next step: A Mexican version of the U.S. Second Amendment, which guarantees:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

          Here we ago again with the Rambo wannabes!! There is a big difference between a musket rifle and an AR15!!!!! If we have the right to keep and bear arms then how come I can’t own a tank? Get with the times people.

            Ntheoc, where exactly in the Bill of Rights, 2nd Amendment, does it refer to a musket? You can own a tank you halfwit, But few can afford to fill it up. 🙂

            Ntheoc, I really don’t know where you can buy or if you can buy an RPG. What I do know is that musket is not in our Constitution, “arms” is the term used by the Founders.

            You RAGWUS PS feeders are the most ardent statists I have had the pleasure of posting with, why are you so fearful of Freedom? American citizens have a right to defend themselves from the Roberts, White’s, Orban’s, Moe’s, and anyone else that seeks to harm them. You have lost touch with your place Ntheoc, you are a public servant, not the master. 🙂

            Ntheoc, Sandyhook would have had the same result if that liberal wack-job would have used a knife, and the police still would have had no impact. The only way Sandyhook is prevented is by citizens being able to protect themselves. The state did nothing to prevent the murders at Sandyhook, same as Virginia Tech, same as the nuts in Colorado. 🙂

            Yes, you can own a tank actually. A registration, another registration if its gunned. Maybe even another registration or two. They are just expensive.
            RPG’s are cheap and easy to build for those with the skill, and nobody has to know. All through history those that have been unarmed and choose to remain as such, are easy pickings for those who are armed. You will never ban technology, you can only convince the ignorant to remain ignorant. Arms are just technology. Some more advanced then others and always available to those with the initiative. So yes indeed, lets get with the times. …and I make sure my friends that are teachers are better shots then I am.;-)

    Too bad Lott’s conclusions have been repeatedly refuted and found to be without statistical support, right John?

    There’s no reason to think Mexico would be safer if firearms were more widely available there, regardless of that nation’s unfortunate position as a central conduit of the drug trade in this hemisphere. How long do you think it will be until these newly armed “farmers” become adjunct members of the Knights Templar cartel in their region?

      There is every reason to believe that any human would be safer with the ability to defend themselves you police state mouthpiece. You are the epitome of a statist tool. You are no smarter than anyone else Skdog, but you are a very staunch control freak.

        Don’t know Fleming, Donk. I’ve never spent much time with CalFire people, but I’m sure you’ll be using whatever he might have done to smear all of them as well.

        Are you buddies with Scott Dekraai? You seem to share his social isolation, ineptitude, and fetish with weapons.

            It certainly IS a huge department, but you know Donk and CWD are more than happy to take a severe outlier smear the people who work for the same employer.

            I’d reciprocate by comparing Donk to that nutjob in New Hampshire the other day, but it would probably be too close to the truth for comfort.

            “Huge department”, it seems that quite a few spend their working hours reading personals on “redbook.com”, it doesn’t happen in the private sector, only in the RAGWUS world. The EPA had people spending their entire working hours watching porn, police departments in California bringing hookers to the station for sex, and of course the rapist cops that their department pals try to protect.

            Your “huge department” syndrome just means there are many more like “Moe” hiding in plain sight, waiting for things to cool down, to unlock their own perversions when having too much time on their hands. 🙂

          There is no one I admire that has taken the life of an innocent Skdog, and that shooting in Seal Beach does nothing to bolster your view that the 2nd Amendment should be abolished for the little non-PS people. You on the other hand find the murder of Ashley MacDonald by Parker and Randle of the HBPD to be all in a days work, which would cause the weakest in morality to see you as a coward hiding behind a badge. 🙂

            Nobody found the MacDonald shooting to be “all in a days work,” which is why it was carefully reviewed by so many people and groups outside of HBPD. Those groups included the Orange County DA’s office and even the Orange County Register.

            It’s just amazing how you “truthers” are able to completely ignore facts that conflict with your skewed and inaccurate view of the world around you. At least you apply your delusions consistently, labeling the unfortunate circumstances in the MacDonald shooting with the same smears against nearly everyone else who is employed to perform important public services for you.

            SKdog, the OCSD did not even review the video sent to them, and up to five witnesses were never spoken with. The truth is it was a typical police investigation when a cop kills a citizen, “did they follow policy”. The head investigator, David Brent, is a woman abusers in his own right.

            Now I got a big laugh out of this,”…smears against nearly everyone else who is employed to perform important public services for you.” The RAGWUS clowns in LE are 90% in it for the money and 10% in it for the service, your system has turned our nation into a PIC. 🙂

    Who in his/her right mind would even think to live in Mexico, especially places like Juarez, without being strapped to the teeth? One has a responsibility for one’s own safety. May not make Mexico safer, but gives the individual a fighting chance.

    I used to do business in rural Sonora and Chihuahua, developing water and wastewater systems in rural communities and cities as big as Hermosillo and Obregon. Black-shirted federale checkpoints were everywhere and the standard trick question was “Armas, Si?” You did not ever, under any circumstance say the word “Si” at that point, because you woud be admitting guilt. Even if they found no armas in the subsequent search of your vehicle, you would still be arrested, since you had admitted to having guns. They must be somewhere. I was never arrested but I heard the horror stories from the locals: beatings with big phone books (leaves no bruises), or pouring coca cola up your nose and then slapping your face hard-the fizzy bubbles in your sinuses would cause excruciating pain.

    Since our US government armed and trained the DF federales for anti narcotics operations, thereby creating the dreaded Zetas, things have gotten much worse. Thanks Uncle Sam-always making the World a better place….
