    Gun laws don't work. Proof. Ask them where thier Chiapas rebels a while back got thier full auto AKs? Mexico is pure corruption and greed.

    They seem to kill each other alot in their drug wars. Guns and drugs must be OK by their socialist standards.

    I have heard that they can't own military calibers. I have seen alot of Mexicans buy 1911s in 38 super to take back with them.

    Mexican citizens can own guns.
    They first have to get permission from the Army and cannot own a weapon of military caliber.
    Most end up with the Glock 25 or 28 or a .38spl revolver.

    The better question is what are they going to do with them. I hope to god not melt them down.
    Plus I want to place a bid on a couple of those.

    They will be paraded, shown off, then quietly re sold to the cartels again.

    I lived and worked down there for about 14 years, Cancun,Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, that area. I never knew anyone that owned a gun.

    Believe me it's not the Mexicans, it's the system.

    The Mexican legal system is an excellent example of how laws don't work without stringent law enforcement and effective juris prudence.

    Their constitution guarantees the right to own a gun, within the regulations and restrictions that may be placed upon them from time to time. Then the regulations and restrictions became so strict that virtually no citizen is legally able to defend his family against armed criminals.

    Meanwhile, criminals all over the country easily buy guns. Drug gangs are armed with machine guns, explosives, hand grenades, and the occasional rocket launcher. Clearly the system doesn't work, not because the laws aren't on the books but because they aren't enforced.

    More laws aren't the answer, neither in Mexico nor in America. Effective enforcement over criminals and effective juris prudence to lock them away are the answers.

    Now, that wasn't hard to explain, was it? The Mexican example should be part of every public debate in America concerning violent crime, the rule of law, and the right to defend one's family.

    .38 Special and .38 Supper are the favorite LEGAL firearms of Mexico...And a few others that are not military or of a military calibre or gauge...

    That's interesting how the Mexican authorities presented the guns in a fancy over-the-top manner, an obvious publicity stunt.

    My wife is Mexican and I lived with her family in Zacatecas for quite a while. Father-in-Law has a 380 and a 25 at home (also a 22 which I haven't seen yet) and keeps a Luger 9mm at his work place. I don't know if his Luger is legal or not but apparently you can own anything with extra permission from local LE.

    From what I've seen working class Mexicans tend to be very pro-gun. It's as much a part of their culture as ours. It's just that they have been stuck with one crappy authoritarian government after the next mostly controlled by the upper class European families.

    Guns are expensive and most Mexicans cannot afford them.

    There are several Mexican citizens who post on boards which I am a member,
    My information comes directly from them.
