Approximately 350 members of the self-defense groups are now held prisoners in the state of Michoacan, including Jose Manuel Mireles, who may soon be released under highly restrictive probation conditions, according to his former lawyers

So civilians got ticked off at being collateral damage in the open warfare that Mexico has among Drug Cartels, managed to scramble some weapons and actually made a bit of difference .  The Government came along and said “Hey, you can’t do that but I am here to help you if you register with us and be an “official member” of the Rural Police!”

Apparently the love fest is over. May it be the Government or the Drug Cartels, the members of the Self Defense groups are being targeted.

When somebody makes a list, no matter how good the intention, somebody else will come along and use it for nefarious purposes.

  1. I hope the NRA keeps their member list under lock and key as well as all of our magazine subscription lists. You know they could be used to identify us. And the state has a list of everyone who conceal carries that I just know they’re going to use one day to come and demand my weapons.

    What can we do? I pay cash for all my bullets and related gear but I know they’re keeping track.

    1. Back in the 90s (right after or around the time of the AWB) a group of Mayors wanted to subpoena NRA’s membership list so they could be sued to pay for emergency hospital care related to gunshots. NRA responded very professionally but the gist of the response was “Fuck you. Bring it on. See you in Court.”
      Some legal experts told the mayors not to even try it as they would be beaten in every court all the way to SCOTUS. I think also the ghost of having to pay the NRA court costs was not palatable.
      They dropped it.
