Mexico is putting guns in the hands of corrupt cops

As the first day of MUNNZ kicked off, the question of small arm disarmaments was posed and it caused much discussion across the floor of delegates. Mexico, vocal on their stance on the question, proposed an alteration to Amendment 7 which "recommends that any surplus of small arms and ammunition under state ownership be (destroyed instead of stockpiled) employed for police or military use."

However, it has been identified that there are criminal gangs which have infiltrated the military and law enforcement systems; when questioned about this, this is what Mexico had to say:

"We are not a corrupt country; if we were, it would be a completely different matter."

"Say you had an automatic rifle - it would be better to have it in the hands of a sane policeman vs. an insane policeman, but wouldn't it be better to have it in the hands of an insane civilian?"

Mexico's police program lasts for three weeks. This three-week structure was implemented with the support of the United States of America. Who's police are often branded as racists against those of colour.

From this, Mexico couldn't provide sufficient evidence that the guns wouldn't fall into the hands of the cartel or criminal gangs within its nation. Leaving the possibility of strengthening the presence of the already prominent crime forces within the area.
