Mexican Senator’s New Bill Backs The Right To Bear Arms

posted on October 12, 2016

Jorge Luis Preciado, a senator from Mexico’s conservative National Action Party (PAN), believes most Mexicans don’t trust the authorities—and therefore won’t report crimes. So he’s offering a solution by backing a measure to allow possession of firearms inside businesses and vehicles. That means bus and cab drivers, truckers and all transport professionals could carry a gun to protect themselves, their passengers and their possessions.

Preciado told Fushion.net, “The Mexican Constitution already allows citizens to possess certain firearms inside their homes, and we simply want to extend that right to other places.” He added, “We are in the midst of a very complex situation and we are simply arguing that if the State cannot protect us, then it should at least allow us to defend ourselves.”

The legislation has been condemned by most Mexican politicians, including Preciado’s own party leadership. However, Preciado believes, “Those who have criticized the initiative are arguing in extremes.”
