Former Mexican President Scolds U.S. after Las Vegas Attack

Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox scolded Americans about our gun laws in the wake of the horrific Las Vegas attack, and Americans understandably called him out on his apparent hypocrisy.


Fox took to his Twitter account to advocate for gun control.

“[Gun Control] is a topic that must be dealt with ASAP,” he said. “American people must not be looking over their shoulder for their countrymen.”

Prior to this tweet he sent out a more sanguine message, saying, “This morning, we mourn for the victims in Las Vegas. Such a heartless and senseless act of violence. We must #PrayForTheWorld to find peace.”

Fox’s comments fall in line with the response from many on the left who clamored for gun control even as the details of the terrible attack were still being released and processed.

What was the response?

Many online didn’t appreciate the politicization from Fox, especially given the exceeding violence in his own country despite gun control being implemented there for years.

Are they right about Mexico being a dangerous country?

Mexico has one of the highest homicide rates in the world. A 2017 survey found there were more than 22,000 homicides in the country and rated it the second deadliest country in the world, worse than Afghanistan or Yemen. Defenders of the country blame the violence on U.S. demand for illegal drugs.

What are gun laws like in Mexico?


While Mexican citizens have a constitutional right to owning guns, the state highly regulates the ownership of guns, and rarely grants conceal-carry permits. As a result, few Mexican citizens own guns legally. Some gun advocates have demanded expansion of gun rights so that Mexican citizens can defend themselves from the violence in Mexico.

    Mexico: 3rd world drug cartel Hell Hole

    Mexicans: All living on EBT/SNAP/welfare/WIC, and SEC 8 in LA.

    End the welfare state, and send all illegals to Liberia, not Mexico. (They will only return in 10 minutes)

    The locals in Liberia will enslave them, or eat hem. What ever……..They will no longer be parasites to America taxpayers.

    The first question is….Why is the former president making a statement to the American People? He not only scolds but accuses us of being irresponsible with gun control? It is obvious that Mexico does want US citizens to have guns because of the treat it is to them. I suspect the cartel is behind this former president influencing his irradical and inappropriate assertions.

    Yea right gun control then all the crooks have to do is kick in your door have a gun and kill your whole family and if someone manages to call 911 they will get there just in time to close the body bags. Do you really think criminals will care if there is a gun law or not? REALLY!!!!
