Thread: American Surfer jailed in Mexico
Dec 14, 2012, 05:26 PM #31
I don't want surfers carrying guns simply because they are entering (poorer) countries where there is a lot of jealousy, war, and other violence related to robberies and other crimes, but as long as the governments of the US and Mexico allow guns, then people who carry them should NOT be punished for it, even if it was about an inch too short (it's not sawn off). A deal is a deal. This is blind justice - let's surprise the guy with a huge heart-wrenching arrest, right after we approve of him registering the gun - at least he did what they told him to do by filling out paper work - what more do you want - they are aiding and abetting a crime - they could have asked him to surrender the weapon or ask him to buy another one that's legal - even sell his gun to buy 2 more down there in Mexico. They're going to damage the man's life far in excess of any wrongdoing - that's exactly what you shouldn't do. Also, when the laws are different in each state and each country, it's too damn confusing to people.
I don't like guns but there are people who get scared when they're in dangerous countries. And he might not be a particularly large man. Is he?
I will end this reply by saying one thing - if there ever IS a place where you might need a gun - that's the time to take it. You could leave it at home almost any other day in your life - except when in a country where you can barely speak the language and there are real bandits around. That's why I don't like to hear this arrest.

i rarely travel anymore since I don't feel comfortable without a weapon nearby. the PSS doesn't go out much except to the range for monthly 'training'. I think this guy had the right weapon for the scenarios he would be facing tho.

You're a chicken - you're afraid of a gang of 5'4" Mexicans!
