"Mexico’s spiraling violence reached new heights with 2,234 murders in June, the country’s deadliest month in at least 20 years, according to government data.

Killings rose in states ranging from the tourist haven of Baja California Sur to the Gulf coast state of Veracruz and even in Mexico City, long considered a relative oasis from drug gang violence. For the first six months of 2017, authorities nationwide recorded 12,155 homicide investigations, or 31 per cent more than the 9,300 during the same period last year."

You must be mistaken

There must be some mistake. Mexico has rather significant gun control. Hence, we all know it is not possible for there to be much if any "gun violence" in Mexico.

For additional examples of the success of "gun control" at reducing violent crime, see Chicago, Detroit, and Washington DC here in the United States.
