No, The Problem Is Not Guns Moving From Mexico To The US… The Problem Is Guns Moving From The US To Mexico
I decided to post this information because I’m frequently presenting it to some of the gun nuts (not everyone who owns a gun is a gun nut) who are convinced a lot of guns are being smuggled from Mexico to the US. This way I can just point them to this article.
Mexico possesses strict gun laws, where most types and calibers are reserved to military and law enforcement. For purposes of personal protection, firearms are only permitted within the place of residence and of the type and caliber permitted by law. In other words, the types of guns that the populace can legally buy in Mexico aren’t the “big boy” weapons the Mexican drug cartels need and want.
How do the Mexican drug cartels get around these restrictions?
Many of their weapons are purchased in the United States then smuggled into Mexico.
