Do not forget to note that Mexico has harsh gun control:
The only gun shop in all of Mexico is behind a fortress-like wall on a heavily guarded military base.www.latimes.com

No better proof to show that this a culture thing than anything else. I'm a Chicano who's been to Mexico and lived around Mexicans his whole life. A lot are still stuck in that borderline tribal/pack mentality. Same thing with a lot of blacks. You can make arguments based on race and all that, which I honestly would be open to because life's an unfair bitch, but I'd say culture is far more significant. Just take one look at any ghetto or listen to any rap song by the latest popular child fucker. There are no preached morals, reasonable future aspirations, or significant values beyond this unearned narcissism and air of entitlement to shit they never bothered trying to earn. You can only hide behind 'muh slavery' for so long before it's evident you're just a failure of a person from a failure of a culture. Everything can be blamed on government ops and other shit but ultimately your people were the ones who didn't have the integrity to not sell drugs, not whore yourselves out, and not abandon your family.Found the Mexican. Incidentally, there's another thing that Mexico is better at than America: Gun violence. There's an interesting twist to it, too, not the least of which being that the media loves to say that Mexico's gun violence problem is America's fault because we're the ones who produce the guns. It's like the, "McDonald's made me fat" argument except twice as idiotic.
So Mexico's population is about 129 million, and the U.S. has a population of about 327 million, but in 2018 there were 20,005 gun homicides in Mexico. In the same year, America had 12,830 gun homicides. Isn't it interesting then that a country with less than half of our population would have a gun violence statistic nearly twice as high as ours?
Mexico might be the best proof you'll ever see that the problem is not the guns, but the people. After all, they're using our guns but they're killing each other twice as much. The only violent crime on the rise in America is the mass shootings; by every other metric our violent crime is dropping and nearing historical lows, and has been on a steady decline since the 1990s.
We're almost back to 1960s-era measurements, and as soon as America can figure out how to handle the extremely mentally ill, we'll have all of our ducks in a row and won't need to worry about lunatics who just aren't big fans of the Batman movies. I wonder if the same could be said of Mexico.
