Mexico Sues Local Gumakers For Cartel Violence

The Mexican government is suing eleven gun manufacturers and suppliers for getting their weapons into the hands of drug cartels in that country.

The complaint filed in Massachusetts alleges Smith and Wesson and Colt helped sell their guns in ways they know routinely arm the drug cartels.

As a result, those guns have led to violence and death in that country.

Mexico has been complaining about gun manufacturers for years, but this is the first time they have sued them.

The country said more than 36-thousand people died from gun violence in Mexico in 2018.

Neither company has commented on the suit.
