Mexico's Gun Control Fail: 3,000 Killed in June Alone

In the first six months of 2019, there were 17,608 murders in Mexico. In June alone, there were 3,080 homicides in the heavily gun-controlled nation, according to The Associated Press.

“Mexico has only one gun store and stringent gun controls, neither of which prevented the murders,” Breitbart News Second Amendment columnist AWR Hawkins noted on July 23.

The lone gun store in Mexico is run by the government. CBS News reported that the government store is 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,” Hawkins noted.


According to gun-grabbers' logic, with laws like this, Mexico should be a nation at peace with itself.
