Killings of 2 Mexican mayors spur call for stepped up security

(CNN) — One man died in a hail of bullets as he traveled in the dark of night, flanked by bodyguards.

Another was shot dead in broad daylight as he met with people in a town square.

The Saturday slayings took place hundreds of miles apart and were apparently unrelated. But both victims -- Ambrosio Soto Duarte and Domingo Lopez Gonzalez -- had the same job titles: They were mayors of towns in Mexico.

Since 2006, when Mexico's government began a crackdown on cartels and violence surged in some parts of the country, 40 mayors have been killed, according to the association.

Lopez Gonzalez was talking with residents who were demonstrating in the town's main square around 7 a.m. Saturday when armed men shot at the crowd, state officials said.

In addition to Lopez Gonzalez, four others were shot and killed, including the city's vice mayor.

Another 12 people were wounded, said Juan Carlos Gomez Aranda, the state's secretary of government.

Those murders and massacres are not occurring due to the guns because those guns are outlawed. Those murders and massacres are occurring due to drug lords, criminals, and gangs. Only here in the USA will you find that guns are the actual perpetrators, and not the criminals that use them as a tool - because unlike in Mexico many of our guns are legal, and legal guns are dangerous guns unlike outlawed guns which are controlled and safe until a bad person makes them do bad things, which isn't the fault of the safe and outlawed gun.

26 American toddlers had shot people by May the 1st this year. What are the odds it's more than 30 by now? One person a week is being shot by Americans under kindergarten age! These criminals must be exterminated!

That's called natural selection, why do you think everyone should lose their rights because a hand full of idiots can't keep their guns secured from their toddlers?

Glad to help. Now that we understand the true cause, we can fix the problems - guns in the USA, and criminals in Mexico. That's why our government kept sending guns to the criminals in Mexico with programs like the "Fast and Furious" gun walking program, so that they could be changed from dangerous legal guns, to safe, outlawed, and illegal guns. Plus, gun walking... can you imagine how great it would be if guns could just walk away before they're used for bad things? Wow, just amazing to think about. Sometimes the things our government can accomplish just amazes me.

If we really want to defeat ISIS maybe we should send all our dangerous legal guns to the Middle East, that will keep our troops safe.

the rate of adults getting poisoned is tremendously higher than the rate of adults getting hurt with firearms.

So when do we ban cosmetics, personal care products ?

God, what a great idea. Let's do it. Those dangerous legal guns can go on patrols, raids, and stand watch, while our military men and women stay behind the wire playing video games - what a plan!!!

when dealing with British members of the bannerrrhoid movement, read Aesop's fable about the fox that lost its tail to understand them

Nah! cannot happen Mexico is effectively gun free. This must have been staged by gun control to promote even stricter laws.

You cannot expect Mexico to be on par with other more modern governments. Mexico is a government on paper only.

What difference does that make? Does that make guns more dangerous and lethal? Increase the unknown mechanism gun control claims exists?

Facts are there are a bunch of hoodlums running the country and silly officials who get in the way..... Where government falls down is in taking out those hoodlums and the corruption within. Government is the hoodlums.
