CANCUN, Mexico Two masked men armed opened fire in a bar on the outskirts of the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Thursday, killing six people and wounding five, the office of the state's attorney general said.
Public Safety Secretary Jesus Aiza says most of the victims belonged to a taxi drivers union.
Aiza says the assailants arrived at "The Mermaid" bar in a poor area far from Cancun's hotel zone in two cars Thursday afternoon. He says two gunmen using automatic rifles went inside and began shooting.

I would not take an all-expense paid trip to anywhere in Mexico. Why do people still travel there?
A fast and furious alert??
Paging Eric Holder, pick up the red telephone please.
Probably still safer than Chicago.
We know this story can’t be true, because ARs are outlawed in Mexico. /sarc/
Unpossible, Mexico has far more restrictive gun laws than we do.
And the libs insist that if guns were banned that crime would go away.

Drop the little Streetview guy anywhere in Mexico and your question will turn to complete befuddlement. Cancun, Cozumel, Cabo San Lucus, all cesspools.
Hasta la vista.
Even Cabo now?
You couldn’t pay me to go there, either!
So the Holder-Obama ‘Fast & Furious’ guns strike again.
I’m pretty sure that besides F & F we, the US, sell directly to the Mexican military around 17,000 to 20,000 guns a year and who knows where those get to.
We always have the best enemies money can buy.
Here is a pdf of Sutton’s book of the same name. A lot of shocking info if one believes the sources.
Details the US and US companies aiding and enabling the Soviet Union throughout the 20th Century.
Even Acapulco. I’ve never been, just in streetview. Maybe the Hotels are nice but everything else looks horrible.
WITHHOLDER. Ah, we are going to ban these type guns that we ah just let walk into mexico.
I went to San Jose del Cabo two years ago and it was beautiful, and plenty safe. Walked around town several times off the resort I was at. Additionally, I’ve been to Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta twice in the last 4 years, all perfectly safe. Next year is Riviera Maya.
If you base your travel plans on something like this than don’t even think about traveling to Chicago, LA, New York, etc...
A Carnival Cruise to Cancun
I saw where a third Carnival ship is having problems now.
More of Eric Holders fast & furious guns??
This report MUST be wrong...there are plenty of open border hacks here on FR to tell you how safe it is in Mexico!
This certainly isn’t the first time, won’t be the last.

Viva la muerte!
I went on a trip to Cancun several years ago, and also took a bus tour to Xcaret, about an hour and a half away.
About halfway there our bus stopped and we saw a line on soldiers all with automatic rifles standing alongside the rode, freaked my wife out something fierce.

That was going on in Acupulco and Puerto Vallarta in the mid eighties. I took my daughter after she graduated...it was a great civics lesson for her. I wonder how long before we see the same on our streets.
About 20 years ago my husband and I were stopped on the highway between Piedros Negros and Nuevo Laredo by the Mexican army. We prayed that it really was the Mexican army, they pointed their AH47s at us while they searched our trucks. Fortunately they didn’t find anything and they let us go but I was scared nearly to death.
It was a big hombre. Violins in the workplace, correcto? The smallest guy in a mariachi band always plays a cello. QED
Mr Trumka, Paging Richard Trumka........
Anti Drivers union folks in Mexico have adopted your terrorist tactics.
Coming soon to a Steelworkers bar in Pittsburgh?
Are you aware that most of those resorts have former military patrol their perimeters at night wearing night vision glasses and carrying real automatic weapons. If they didn’t they’d be overrun with bad guys.
BTW every once in a while the bad guys get through and/or a guest gets shot by security.
Absolutely the ones I go to DO NOT. In fact, I’ve never even seen cops carrying around “real automatic weapons” when off resort.
When was the last time you were in Mexico LadyJane? And where exactly?
