Gang violence in Mexico and US gun laws

A municipal police officer chased members of a gang in Acapulco, Mexico, on January 8, 2011, after twenty-five bodies were found in the city. Ten more dead were found there on June 9, and over 40,000 people in Mexico have been killed in drug-related violence since December 2006, a surge that many are attributing to lose US gun laws.
