Called officially the Directorate of Arms and Munitions Sales, customers can buy guns, after negotiating lengthy paperwork requirements. However, there are many guns that citizens cannot legally buy,.....only Mexican police and military can buy the most modern firearms. Which of course regulates citizens to being under gunned from corrupt law enforcement and military, not to mention the cartels with their massive numbers of personnel and firepower.
That's not always a bad thing as the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan really took to the Soviet Army using bolt action Short Magazine Lee Enfields.
The Director of THE Mexican Gun Shop, Lt Col Raul Manzano-Velez says the shop sells an average of 6,490 firearms each year, however that number is decreasing. He further stated that "only a tiny percentage, less than 1%, end up in the hands of criminals." And of course, this idiot validates President Felipe "It's All America's Fault" Calderon's statements that "90% of the over 93,000 weapons captured in the last four years from criminals and cartels came from the United States." But this of course is a giant lie. Both the Mexicans and our own Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (aka the famed BATFE) refuse to release the results of traces.
