Smile Mexico

I asked my friend in Sonora MX about safety before we went. His answer was if you read the paper you would not go to Chicago. We even took our guns as we were hunting down there. We had a great time no problems.

But if you are going with a group you could collectively hire a guard for all the aircraft. Its pretty cheap insurance.

Staying tuned.
My post is based on 40 years in LE. One doesnít need to look to far to see the odds are changing. Crime, in this case homocides, have steadily moved from the backstreets of Mexican towns to their prized resort areas. Resort towns are becoming the favorite hunting grounds for both criminals and terrorists alike these days.

Why put ones family or friends in jeopardy is a question one should be asking, especially when there are safer destinations to explore both in and out of our country.

Just one example,

There are, sadly, many many more, as of late.
