Don;t do the crime if you can't do the time!

Perhaps as he headed to the crossing should have heeded all of those the 10 x 14 signs he passed that said DO NOT TAKE GUNS INTO MEXICO!

It seems that it technicaly he could have the gun: The charges against Hammar appear to be over a technicality. Mexican prosecutors allege the length of Hammar's shotgun barrel, which according to Mexican law has to be longer than 25 inches, was too short, although a discrepancy has emerged over how the barrel was measured.


I wonder if they used the right formula to measure it: (L×d)+W/G)/(∠∝(2@t)]

I didn't know it was legal to take any gun into Mexico without a crap-load of paperwork. I know of people who were arrested by the Aduana over a couple of loose rounds of ammunition.

I get the feeling that this man's family is his worst enemy right now. Make it into a national story and put the Mexican officials on the spot instead of quietly handing over some cash as instructed. Always works.

Having been to Mexico I have noticed the Policia are not especially concerned with law and order as much as they are about obtaining currency. If they give you grief ask how much the fine is and gladly pay them. If they want too much show them your "wallet" with $40-100 to placate cops/muggers. Keep your real scratch and ids somewhere safer.

It still seems like a very bad idea, not just the gun, but the whole idea of taking an RV through Mexico to Costa Rica.

This article says he was going to Costa Rica and the gun was going to be used for small game hunting. The gun was also a .410. You can check out this link below that describes the gun in detail and the issues surrounding its legality.

It also doesn't help when Mexican cops get caught stealing items from the crash site of a celerity. Its one thing not to be able to trust a place full of criminals and druglords. Its another when the cops are worse. Just stay out.

I had that happen to a friend in Tijuana. He got arrested for supposedly being drunk in public. Given that this was TJ he probably was. Anyway on the way to jail he gave the cop $20 and the cop turned around and took him back to the bar. My friend told me basically what you said, keep a little cash in your wallet for the shakedown. Keep the rest in your sock or somewhere not obvious.

Jeeze, if he didn't realize that taking a gun into Mexico at this time might cause some sort of problem, maybe he needs to sit there and think about things for a little while.

Remember kids - if they catch you doing something illegal in Mexico (regardless of how trivial) they will seriously f*ck you up.

I think it makes them feel a little better about the few tens of thousands of murders they have been unable to do a damn thing about for the last decade or so.

I'm not joking about the first part. The second part is just speculation, of course.

$20? He got off cheap. A similar thing happened to a friend of mine in Cabo. I don't remember the amounts but he initially had more than $20 on him but that wasn't enough. So they took him to an ATM and then let him go (after withdrawing more cash, of course)

If you cross an international border without a) taking a full inventory of personal possessions, b) making sure that all such possessions are legal across the border, and if applicable, c) making sure you have enough funds to pay any duty that applies, you're a dumbass. Leave the guns and knives at home, and don't forget to leave your thumbdrive full of Rule 34 at home, for that matter.

If you really have to take a laptop with you, wipe the disk and start with a fresh install of your OS of choice.

A Shambling Mound: Remember kids - if they catch you doing something illegal in Mexico (regardless of how trivial) they will seriously f*ck you up.


From another article:

The charge Hammar faces, according to his attorney Eddie Varon-Levy, was aggravated felony of having a weapon used by the Mexican armed forces, which is punishable up to 15 years in prison.

The Mexican federal prosecutor is arguing that Hammar Jr.'s 24-inch length barrel falls one inch below the federal requirement of 25 inches.

Varon-Levy said not only is the prosecution team unable to come to a consensus about how to actually measure the rifle, he was told by high-ranking Mexican military officials that they don't even use the .410 gauge shells fired by the gun, which once belonged to Hammar's grandfather and is considered an heirloom by his family.

Once in Mexico City I was in a hotel provided car that got pulled over by the police for driving on the wrong day. The cop threaten to take us all in, impound our luggage and then he pointed his sidearm at the car. After the driver paid him about $50 or whatever, he let us go.

So yeah, Mexico City was great. The coworkers there were very nice folks. The historical parts of the city we got to see were great. But in the end, fark em. I don't plan to go back unless I have no other choice.

Still going with:
If you think some place is dangerous enough that you need a gun, DON'T GO THERE.

Not blaming the victim, but I have a firm policy of avoiding shiatholes. Well, except your mother's.
