Mexican official plan to ask the U.S. Senate to create a registry of all commercialized firearms in border states, which includes California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Mexico says it will make it easier to trace guns used in violent attacks.
The measure was reportedly approved on January 9 by Mexico’s Permanent Commission, a government entity that meets when Mexico’s Senate and the Chamber of Deputies is in recess.
Note in the below clip how Arizona residents react upon hearing this news, with objections. And, of course, their objections are sound. It is very dangerous for the Mexican government to have a list of US border state gun owners. I would advance the argument and suggest that such a list is dangerous for federal, state and local governments here in the US to have also. Gun registration is one step away from gun confiscation. If the US ever ends up with a tyrant running the government, the last thing you want is him having a list of where every gun is in America.
