Again , in most countries OUTSIDE the US , the people are NOT armed , it becomes a different proposition , much more dangerous to the tyrant when they are . Makes me laugh , for Mexico to have that many vehicles , they must have called a national emergency . Oh ! Almost forgot , there are some areas in Mexico where the government is not in control , but that goes back to the beginning point , the drug cartels are heavily armed . They are absolutely ruthless , and probably have more money to throw around than the government does .
