The US Homicide rate is 3.8 per 100,000 gun ownership is 112.6.
The rate in Mexico is very high 21.5 per 100,000 gun ownership is 15.

I think the Homicide rate would drop in Mexico if more people had guns for protection from criminals.

Uh...yeah. The cartels would totally go for that. You wouldn't lose your entire family and anyone you have ever known before being strung up by your toenails and beaten like a pinata if you killed a cartel member...or anything.

But you know this. If you felt shame in your dishonest question posts would you stop?

You really think there are accurate stats for gun possession in The United States of Mexico?

Geng, you first have to look at the gun laws in Mexico which I know nothing about first before you ask this. My opinion..

NOBODY really knows how many guns are in Mexico. Nobody.
In 1997 I drove from Atlanta to Belize and back thought the entirety of Mexico.
Guns may not be legal there, but everybody seemed to have one. Everybody but us.
Lots of full auto weapons too. Good guys (?) had M-16's and MP-5's. Some other folks we met seemed to prefer AK's.
Fortunately both groups did really appreciate a cold Coke. Kept a full cooler in the Land Rover.
