On Wednesday, President Barack Obama outlined his package of proposals to “reduce gun violence” in the United States. The key issues the White House is seeking to introduce are: universal background checks for all gun sales, the reinstatement of a ban on assault rifles ban and a 10-round limit on magazines.

One of the proposals includes gun trafficking law that would make the act a federal crime.

After the press conference, surrounded by children, the president signed 23 executive orders.

So, we kick off another national gun debate. But what do gun laws look like south of our border? Is it surprising to hear that it’s far more difficult to legally purchase a gun in Mexico than the U.S.?
