Guerrero: Faced With Violence, 100 Business Owners Seek Permission to Bear Arms




Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

The Confederación Patronal de la República Mexicana (COPARMEX) (Employers Confederation of the Mexican Republic), Chilpancingo delegation, said that at least 100 business owners have requested permission to bear arms at the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA), due to the serious problem of violence facing the state of Guerrero and denounced that in the state, there are five criminal groups that threaten the safety of the people.

The president of COPARMEX in Chilpancingo, Adrián Alarcón Ríos, said that of the hundred requests, at least “half” have already been authorized and the business owners will have permission to bear arms for the protection of their physical integrity and of the establishments where they work.

Alarcón Ríos said that there are at least twice as many people “who are seeking to acquire a weapon illegally on the black market.”

In late January, during a meeting with the Secretary General of Government of the State of Guerrero, Florencio Salazar Adame, the president of COPARMEX explained that 35 workers from seven businesses in Chilpancingo had already had permits to bear arms within the framework of the law, faced with the problem of insecurity that the three levels of government have failed to resolve.


Faced with the problem of insecurity that persists in Chilpancingo, where just last Saturday, four executions occurred in different parts of the city, Alarcón Ríos referred to the local press that the request of union members to carry weapons “has increased gradually”, based on individual responsibility and legal requirements of the Federal Law on Firearms and Explosives of the SEDENA.

When asked about the increase in applications, he said that there are about 100 business owners who maintain a requirement process before the SEDENA, although he added that there are people “that they do the process on their own account, as there are those who dare to bring the gun into their own vehicles or near their belongings with the danger that this represents.”

He reiterated that of the 100 applications, at least “half” already have a permit and have been “generously” supported by the president of the private security company Jobamex, Joaquín Badillo Escamilla,  faced with training in case of any type of incident.

The leader explained that pressure continues from some members to form a security and justice committee with the National Security Council and the organization system S.O.S. Mexico, which combats crime and impunity, as they call for detonating the local economy.


He argued that faced with the violent events in Chilpancingo, where based on a count by the newspaper El Sur, there have been 102 executions by organized crime so far this year, business owners live in anxiety “because of organized crime, common crime, and a third front that could be the police by being accomplices of criminals or be in collusion with them.”

He stressed that there is no “will” of the three levels of government to counter violence, and therefore there are “twice as many people” that with their own ways, “seek ways to acquire a weapon.”

The Chilpancingo COPARMEX noted that crime has managed to get little results from the small amount of police presence that exists in Chilpancingo.

The employers’ leader said that the problem is being paid to forces that “are neither trained or have the slightest intention of safeguarding public safety,” he said.


Adrián Alarcón also spoke of business owners who have had to leave Guerrero because of the insecurity in the state.

Violence Rages


On Friday, 18 murders occurred in the state, six in Iguala, five in Acapulco, four in Chilapa, two in Tixtla, and one in Buenavista de Cuellar.

Last Saturday, the Secretariat of Public Security of the state of Guerrero, Pedro Almazán Cervantes, said that the violence in the state is a product of the struggle between organized crime groups such as Los Rojos, Los Ardillos, Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel, and others that have not been identified.

Almazán Cervantes said that in Iguala, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel has a high presence and that the Guerreros Unidos continue to operate, “they are groups that are dividing but nevertheless, the struggle between them continues and it’s difficult to determine the murders that they commit.”

When asked about what groups are in dispute in Acapulco, he said “it is the crown jewel and several groups dispute the city,” he said that the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Guerrero carries out investigations and the Ministry of Public Security carries out seizures and forfeitures.  Of the groups operating in Acapulco he said that it’s “primarily” the Beltrán Leyva Cartel, the Independent Cartel of Acapulco (CIDA), and its spin-offs.

On the return of the federal police after it left Guerrero before the elections of June 5th, Almazán Cervantes said that there is no precise date for when it will be reincorporated to the security activities in the state because their disposals are “in movements that are occurring in other parts of the country, mainly Oaxaca, Chiapas, the federal force goes where the main problem is, we hope for them to be back soon.”

  2. No human should seek permission to defend their life's. Better to be judge by twelve, than carried by six...

    1. No need to ask permission from a corrupt state, but a corrupt state has given itself permission to do as it pleases, there is the choice to do the AUTODEFENSAS BLOCK BY BLOCK and take the turf back, only without propaganda, that is why they call it subversive activity...
      --The State has its own state sponsored autodefensas by the way, they are secret, powerful, murdering, not paid, must live off the ground, but they enjoy impunity in the best tradition of a terrorist terror sponsoring narco-state bla bla bla bla....

    4. The Mexicans have the right to the twelve but, keeping you in jail is a better business for the government.

      You are out gunned therefore the government opresses each of you.

  5. The Mexican people need to ask for a change to the constitution so that, we give the Mexican people the right to bear arms just like we allow americans to bear arms here in México.

    They also need to ask for production of legal weapons within the 32 states so that, we don't rely on other countries to supply the weapons through the black market.

    You Mexican are all stupid thinking we the Mexican government are going to do this for you.

    Until you do the above you will continue to lose one day and the next and so forth.

    1. Are you sure that Americans can legally bear arms in Mexico? If so, under what circumstances? I would really like to know.

      Delete
    2. I think it's a proper policing problem.Most countries [the US the exception] don't really arm themselves,the police take care of the problem.If these business's shut down or move that's less money from taxes in the Mexican coffers.I realize security and investigations cost money but isn't that what the Merida Initiative helps with so you don't have to spend all the money and can allot to something else.If these business's shut down that's lost revenue in the Mexican coffers.You are going to scare away foreign investment and even Mexican investment.It's certainly scared me away from doing business there as I was seriously considering it 2 years ago.

    3. The money in the coffers don't get paid out to policeman . The crooks in the government steal it . I was told years ago that many of the street cops in acuna pay to get to be a cop from the proceeds of their theft . Don't know if that's true or not but they are thieving sons of bitches .

    4. Yes, Americans and Mexicans can legally possess firearms in Mexico. As an American, you must first own a home in MX and have a Visa Temporal (good for four years) or a Visa Permanente (good for 10 years). Then you will have to become a member of one of the many local gun clubs. You can legally own up to 10 firearms-- high powered rifles (non semi-auto), .380, .32, .25, and .22 pistols (revolvers or semi-auto). Each year the gun club will obtain a Military Transportation Permit and hunting licenses for each member. The cost of all these fees, permits and licenses is about $300 per year. The regulations state you are authorized to transport and use your firearms for sporting purposes only and not for self-defense.

    5. 7;47-you are probably right on that 1,the money doesn't go to the right places.It all boils down to corruption.I had heard also the cops have to pay for their positions in DF even though they get paid on paper.Explains why they are always on the take.

    6. Genny, changes to the Constitution only happens if the "presidente" asks for them, it is an old trick, and if a senator asks for a change it will only be because it is small, or somebody else is behind it...

    1. Damn . Not saying your wrong but . I posted a comment , thought I could get a "rise" outa some . Mine must have been considered to inflammatory . I shoulda went more the kill , blood and gore route . That's not what anybody needs . Its easy to sit back on your haunches and say lets fight it out . I see lots of fools call for bloody revolution . Luckily , so far there hadn't been enough people falling in behind fools . Lets hope it stays that way . Escalation isn't the answer . Consider a county the size of Mexico in the 21st century having a large scale civil war . It could last a long time and produce more cold hearted criminals than you could imagine . Lots of people calling for war really don't consider the consequences . As bad as it is a civil war could multiply it by hundreds and the mentality it would breed could radiate for years after it was over.

    2. If the opposition has enough money for guns, ammo and the logistics then those things will make their way to Mexico. The only problem is convincing the big dog US government to stay on the porch. It will also be a hard sell to get the US from intervening because of the fear of the civil war spilling over the border. It can be done but will the opposition leaders be smart enough to organize and rally the people to their side.

  13. Lol. Anyone who says a Mexican citizen can bear arms in Mexico 1. Is living in a fantasy world 2. Has never lived in a town up in the mountains far removed, hours, from any concept of public safety and 3. Is giving you Peña nieto lip service about what the Mexican constitution says. It may very well say one thing, but with a government as corrupt a that one, I'm here to tell you it doesn't matter what the fuck the constitution says, real life dictates otherwise. This is coming from someone who sold cattle in Zacatecas for awhile, where you acquire a firearm the way everyone else does for the same reason everyone else who is legit does, because from local cops all the way up, that's if they're even around because they go missing for days, are all on the side of the fucking cartels. You can't even report being the victim of a crime without having to go through some complex bullshit system, you go asking the government for permission for a firearm down there and see how that goes. Sitting on the American side in the luxury of public safety, and dealing with extortion and general shitbags on the Mexican side are two completely different things. "The Mexican constitution says" ha! Don't make me laugh with that bullshit.
