Mexican Citizens Defy Laws, Arm UPand Form Self-Defense Squads to Fight Cartels
Quote:Citizens in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero are fed up with the government’s failure to do anything to curb the rising violence from the countries numerous drug cartels.

The citizens are further fed up with Mexican gun laws, which prohibit them from owning weapons which might allow them to actually fight back and form a deterrent to the cartels.

Now these citizens are taking matters into their own hands.

They are arming themselves with whatever firearms they can get their hands on, forming “self-defense squads”, setting up their own roadside checkpoints, and doing volunteer patrols.

Most are armed with old hunting rifles, shotguns, aging revolvers and other basic firearms.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Fast and Furious was giving guns to the wrong Mexicans! I applaud these people for standing up for themselves.
I'm sure the utterly reliable Mexican military will roll right into those towns and disarm every one.
These people have definitely earned my respect with their actions. They stand little chance against the heavily armed and brutal cartels, but were I in there shoes I would rather die fighting.
The law? The law is a human institution...
Citizens taking up arms for themselves is the only way that they will fight back a tyrannical it drug cartels, or their own government.
