It was like that, in the more remote areas at least.

I think they are referring to small time local gangs.  The Zetas would wipe out the whole town.

Guns are banned in Mexico and don't belong in the hands of ordinary citizens. They should rely on the government and police to protect them from harm because assault weapons in the hands of citizens leads to mass shootings. These gun nut terrorists will soon be taught a lesson about overstepping the authority of the police to protect them. It is impossible for the police to be corrupt because they stand for justice.

Where government institutions fail the people will band together to create their own institutions. This is a lesson worth remembering you anarcho-libertarians.

FTFA: Authorities are sympathetic. Guerrero state Assistant Interior Secretary Rossana Mora Patino says it's understandable and even legitimate that the people of Ayutla have taken matters into their own hands.

But she says their actions are illegal and must stop.


"Yeah, we can see why you'd do that, being the only option. But quit it!"

Fun fact: The Mexican Constitution is the only one beside the U.S. Constitution to guarantee the right to keep and bear arms...but doesn't allow Mexicans to own anything the military uses, and has effectively been hamstrung to be a ban through laws.

2013-01-27 04:55:39 PM
This is why it is important for the people to be well armed. We see what kind of weapons the cartels pack. The citizens should be able to at least have their semi-auto rifles chambered in an intermediate cartridge with the ability to accept a detachable magazine holding no less than 30 rounds.

Mexico's Gun Laws

The Mexican Constitution says:

Article 10 - The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right to possess arms in their residences for their security and legitimate defense with the exception of those prohibited by federal law, and those reserved for the exclusive use of the military. Federal law will determine the cases, conditions, requisites, and places in which the bearing of arms by inhabitants will be authorized.

"The inhabitants of the United Mexican States" means Mexican citizens and, as defined in other laws, foreign citizens who hold a valid immigration status beyond FMM.

Article 27. The right to carry arms will only be authorized for foreigners when, in addition to satisfying the requirements indicated in the previous article, they accredit their status of "Inmigrado" except in the case of temporary license permits for tourists with sports-related intentions. Visitors/tourists (Visitante) do not have gun rights without a license. This license is only issued for "sporting purposes."

The privilege of carrying a firearm outside of one's home is limited to what is authorized by Mexican federal law. Mexican citizens and a Residente Permanente can apply for a carry permit. Convincing evidence must be presented showing why a carry permit is needed. Such a permit is very hard to get. There are work-arounds by membership in a hunting or gun club as discussed below.

All privately-owned firearms must be registered with the Mexican army.

Types of guns allowed

Article 11 of Ley Federal de Armas de Fuego y Explosivos lists prohibited "military firearms" in México.

They include:

full-auto and semi-auto handguns larger than 380

revolver .357 Magnum or larger

rifles larger than .30 caliber

shotguns larger than 12ga or with a barrel shorter than 25".

Allowed hand gun calibers are .380 auto, .38 and .22.

Allowed long guns: rifles no larger the 30 caliber; shotguns 12, 20 and 410 with barrels longer than 25"

There is only one legal gun store in the country; it's at an army base in Mexico City. There you can legally buy a gun and get a 24 to 72 hour transport permit back to your home. You can buy two boxes of ammo with the gun. You will need a letter from the local police department attesting that you have no criminal record. You will also need your immigration document (or voter ID card if you are a citizen) and passport with copies, your CURP and proof of address. When you arrive at the army base you will not be allowed to enter with any electronic device - cell phone, computer, camera, etc.

You must fill out an application which you can get at any army base. In addition to the completed application, you will need your immigration document (or voter ID card if you are a citizen) and passport with copies, your CURP and proof of address. When you have all of this, you may then transport the weapon to the Army base for registration. The registration application is your permit to transport the gun to the base. The gun must be in a box or wrapped so that it is not visible. The approved application will serve as your carry permit on the way home. Thereafter, you must not take the gun out of the house without a special carry permit.

Uncensored Quote from B. Traven's The Treasure of The Sierra Madre

"Badges, to god-damned hell with badges! We have no badges. In fact, we don't need badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges, you god-damned cabron and ching' tu madre! Come out there from that shiat-hole of yours. I have to speak to you."

The only Spanish word I know there is cabron which I believe in English means bastard.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
--Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment (1764).

Wrong. Traditional White America created a different society from Mexico. While there are exceptions we trend towards local government that is responsive,not currupt and will safeguard our property.

What strong central goverment laws have given us are the "crimes" associated with getting products we desire but are "illegal". Prohibition and the war on drugs filled our jails. We have jailed people trying to grow a natural crop. Marijauna.

That is not possible, because guns are banned in Mexico.

So that is not possible that gun violence is a problem.

Mexico experiences violent crime as a result of a lack of restrictions upon firearms in the United States, which allows criminals to legally and easily purchase fully automatic assault rifles, vehicular mounted machine guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and multiple hand grenades without a background check at "gun shows" in the United States which they then smuggle over the border to arm criminal cartels.

Not gun control per say (unless we're counting another failure), more like the proper use of arms to prevent extortion.

/not all armed resistance focuses on titanic battles between liberty and tyranny.
/sometimes its just about chasing the local thugs out of town.
