Gun-Controlled Mexico: 3,080 Homicides in June Alone

Mexico has only one gun store and stringent gun controls, neither of which prevented the murders of 3,080 in that country in June alone.

On July 5, 2019, Breitbart News reported that heavily gun-controlled Mexico saw, on average, 94 homicides a day for the first six months of 2019, many of which are firearm-related. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the U.S. witnessed roughly 53 homicides a day in 2017, approximately 40 of which were firearm-related. . .

The Associated Press reports there were “3,080 killings in June” in Mexico and a total of “17,608 killings” in gun-controlled Mexico during the first six months of 2019.

There is only one gun store in Mexico, and it is run by the government. CBS News reports that the government store the only place a firearm can be “legally” purchased. All firearms must be registered and the type and number of guns one can own are highly regulated.

The University of Sydney’s lists Mexico’s gun control as “restrictive,” noting that the right to possess firearms is only “conditionally guaranteed” by the country’s constitution. (Read more from “Gun-Controlled Mexico: 3,080 Homicides in June Alone” HERE)
