I laugh out loud when people mention vacationing in Mexico.

I then let them know that more people have died in Mexico due to drug violence than Americans died in Vietnam.

AND THEY STILL WANT TO GO!

It has deteriorated since the original post in 2013.

There were 14 murders in Cancun in 36 hours.

Pretty graphic photo, even with it being blurred. Just more violence in gun free Mexico.
This sounds like it might be local inhabitants' retaliation against local criminals.

Perhaps the government should just list safe places to go.

Wouldn't go to Mexico if it was an all expense paid free trip.

Tijuana may not be a place to visit.

Street dogs playing soccer with a human head.

Murder rate exceeds Chicago by a long shot.

The reports of people dieing by gunshot must not be correct as Mexico is gun free.

If you want an insight into how bad the cartel is in Mexico, check out Ed Calderon. He’s been on different podcasts telling of his time when he worked for the Mexican government and his interactions with the cartels.

I've gone many times in the past to Mexico for diving and fishing.

Mostly in the Yucatan.

I love the people, the culture.

Never, ever again though.

The country is a scary, scary place and I pity the poor citizens...it's owned by violent criminals and that just the politicians...

Mexico is an astoundingly beautiful country and most people there are good hardworking folks. Very sad to see so much violence in a place where ordinary people are not permitted to own firearms for self defense.

The founders didn't conjure up the right to bear arms out of thin air. They learned its value from the founders of Western civilization.
Aristotle considered the possession of arms synonymous with possession of political power: "when the citizens at large administer the state for the common interest, the government is called by the generic name -- a constitution . . . in a constitutional government the fighting-men have the supreme power, and those who possess arms are the citizens"

In the early 70s, my buddies and I rode our motorcycles across the border into Mexico at Del Rio. Drove around for about 10 minutes. Did not like the look of the place or the traffic. Not going back.

I have friends who make a week+ dirt bike ride into Mexico's interior every fall, riding off road across the countryside & into smaller towns. Maybe those are the safe areas, maybe not. I just shake my head & wish them well.

Gun free Mexico unless your a Federale or a Member of the Cartels and sometimes you can't tell which is which!
Government, like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearful master
If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention
