Mexican Government Is Suing US Gun Manufacturers Because ‘Their Products Are Trafficked’

The Mexican government on Wednesday sued numerous U.S. gun companies over illegal firearm trafficking across the border because “their products are trafficked,” according to a new report by The Washington Post.

The lawsuit argued American gun manufacturers “are conscious of the fact that their products are trafficked and used in illicit activities against the civilian population and authorities of Mexico.”

“Nonetheless,” it added, “they continue to prioritize their economic benefit, and use marketing strategies to promote weapons that are ever more lethal, without mechanisms of security or traceability.”

The report mentioned Smith & Wesson Brands, Inc.; Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc; Beretta U.S.A. Corp; Glock, Inc; and Colt’s Manufacturing Co. Llc. as companies included in the upcoming lawsuit.

“Mexico is seeking compensation for damages, which are estimated at as much as $10 billion, Mexican officials said at a news conference on Wednesday,” Reuters reported.

“Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has been prioritizing tackling the flow of illicit arms from the United States into Mexico, which has recorded record-high homicide rates in recent years.” – READ MORE
