    Personally I would not bring a gun, but you got to remember when your driving from us to costa rica you drive through Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, three of the most dangerous places in the world "gang wise." Ms13, Latin kings, all that ****. Guy just wanted a little protection

    Ha, pulling a gun out in a situation like that will get you killed quick. You don't want to scare a dude with nothing to lose who's pointing a gun at you.

    In the US, people who carry a gun are 3 times as likely to get shot during a robbery as someone who does not.

    I personally, would never travel anywhere that I felt required carrying a firearm, there's just way too many safe, awesome places on the planet.

    I'm shocked he's been there for 4 months and there's been little or no public outcry! It sounds like it's time to cut off the millions in aide, tell US citizens not to go to Cozumel, Acapulco or any other Mexican tourist spot and then build or own Great Wall.

    A real bummer for sure.A lot of killing going on down there with weapons, I assume a lot more dangerous than a shotgun. My take is going to Mexico with any gun is a lose lose for you. If you shoot someone down there being from America someone will kill you in short order I am sure. I love being armed as often as possible here in the U.S. With consistent practice firearms are a good tool to protect your life. I wont go to Massachusetts,New york or New Jersey unless I have to. Maybe someday those places will have better CCW permits. Mexico I wont go for any reason whatsoever. Mexico could make so much money if they protected tourists.I hope this military gentlemen can escape unharmed.
