Gun-Controlled Mexico: 3,080 Homicides in June Alone

Gun-Controlled Mexico: 3,080 Homicides in June Alone: Mexico has only one gun store and stringent gun controls, neither of which prevented the murders of 3,080 in that country in June alone.

On July 5, 2019, Breitbart News reported that heavily gun-controlled Mexico saw, on average, 94 homicides a day for the first six months of 2019, many of which are firearm-related. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the U.S. witnessed roughly 53 homicides a day in 2017, approximately 40 of which were firearm-related.

On average, the U.S. sees 30-33 firearm-related homicides a day.

The Associated Press reports there were “3,080 killings in June” in Mexico and a total of “17,608 killings” in gun-controlled Mexico during the first six months of 2019
