Thread: Fox Nation: Mexico wants info
Just saw from a link on a twitter feed to fox that Mexico is wanting a list of all gun owners in border states. With Mexico being as corrupt as it is, I'd be looking at why possibly the cartel would want to know.
why they want to know?
1) so they know where to go to steal guns
2) so they know where NOT to illegally cross the border

If the govt gives it up, that's unreal. I happen to remember the Mexican govt holding a marine in one of their prisons for legally claiming a sears & Roebuck shotgun while going to his families property in Mexico. The Mexican govt refused cooperation and if I remember correctly, private groups led the fight to get him out.
Say "sorry, we do not document illegals"...
There is no database of owners. (Except if you live if Tinfoiltown)
Such a list cannot exist, since private transactions are not recorded. And there are lots of private transactions.
As to Mexico asking for something like this, I'm thinking...no way, Jose.
I have a FFL buddy who only uses the paper 4472. That e-form is a means to let the government have a DB of retail purchases according to him. I have no doubt that there is "a list", how accurate that list is is a different issue.
