Owning a gun in Mexico is illegal!!
Depends on who you ask, now.
Only if you don’t get it from mr. e. holder. I’m sure they got these firearms from the one and only gun store in the county at the army base in Mexico City. Folding stock AR. Bolt action whatevers...............
Here is a Freeper thread from 03 on Edward Abbey the patron saint of of radical environmentalists. He had some novel ideas on things other than the environment.
“Stop every campesino at our southern border, give him a handgun, a good rifle, and a case of ammunition, and send him home. He will know what to do with our gifts and good wishes. The people know who their enemies are.”
What I understand is that handguns and any firearm that uses a "military caliber" is not allowed for civilians. Anything else is registered and requires a permit
Right to Possess Firearms
In Mexico, the right to private gun ownership is guaranteed by law
Prohibited Firearms and Ammunition
In Mexico, civilians are not allowed to possess military grade firearms intended for Army, Navy and Air Force use, including: .357 Magnum revolvers and those greater than .38 calibre, handguns greater than 9mm, rifles and carbines of .223, 7mm, 7.62 and .30 calibres, automatic firearms, or shotguns with barrels shorter than 635mm or greater than 12 gauge
Nothing is illegal in May-he-co as long as you know who to pay, and how much.
