Ted Cruz loves Cancun where guns are forbidden

Even awesome Orlando doesn’t match up to Cancun....


“As a result of the changes to Article 10 of the Mexican Constitution and the enactment of the Federal Law of Firearms and Explosives, openly carrying a firearm or carrying a concealed weapon in public is virtually forbidden to private citizens, unless explicitly authorized by the Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA). For purposes of personal protection, firearms are only permitted within the place of residence and of the type and caliber permitted by law.”

I'm sure he's aware of Mexico's gun laws.
