Mexico Interferes With Right to Bear Arms

The government of Mexico has expressed concern over the shooting in El Paso, where several Mexican nationals died, but went further – challenging US gun laws in the process. The Washington Examiner reports:

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is pushing the United States to adopt stricter gun laws after several Mexican nationals died in a mass shooting in El Paso.

A gunman entered an El Paso Walmart on Saturday and went on a shooting spree that killed 22 people and left at least 24 others injured. The alleged gunman is in police custody.

“We’re very respectful of what other governments decide, but we think that these lamentable events that occurred in the United Sates should lead to reflection, analysis and the decision to control the indiscriminate sale of arms,” López Obrador said at a Monday press conference.

“It is not our disposition to involve ourselves in the internal affairs of any country, but this topic should be considered again because it affects many people, in this case Americans as well as Mexicans,” López Obrador said.

The right to bear arms is a fundamentally American right, and Mexico’s own gun violence despite strong gun control negates any policy advice they might have.
