Came across an article on El Salvador.

Our Church sends a mission there every year. Last year they got out right as the gangs became violent flexing their muscle. I went year before.

So after reading article was curious what gun laws are in place for the most violent country in central America and came across these 2 articles.

This second one was clearly written by a Liberal who cannot do simple figuring but still good statistics.

I was in El Salvador in the late 80s flying support for the US Milgrp. At that time there was no problem for people to obtain firearms regardless of the laws since their civil war was in full swing. Following the end of the conflict the country was awash is military firearms outside of official channels.

Do not recognize any of the people but the scenery is all very familiar. We were from B Co 6-101 AV. No regular US infantry was in the country at the time or prior to our time there. The only other US troops were either SF or Marine advisors.

By the time of the shoot down he mentions in 1991 I was a contract CH47 flight instructor at Ft. Rucker, AL.

Served a JTF tour with a Marine warrant that had been holed up in that hotel during the coup attempt down there that made the news.

I can go to any country in the world and buy or make a firearm (legal or not) within 6 hours or less. "Gun Control" is total BS. It cannot be done!

Carry On!

1992-1998 was the quiet period for CA. The civil wars were largely over, CIA went home, and things were pretty quiet. Since then it's been a slide into violent crime. Even Belize, once quite safe, is now completely gone to pot.
