    Toy handguns are displayed for the press at a government ceremony in Mexico ...
    MEXICO — Mexico City authorities say they have destroyed thousands of toy guns in an effort to fight real crimes committed with fake weapons.

    Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said Friday that officials believe that at least three of every 10 violent crimes in Mexico City is committed with a realistic toy gun.

    The guns were confiscated from shops in Mexico City and the surrounding state of Mexico. Mexico bans virtually all civilian gun ownership and requires that toy weapons be made of transparent or brightly colored plastic. Sunday is Three Kings Day, when Mexican children receive the largest number of holiday gifts.

    Official statistics show that there were 82,117 robberies and 1,349 homicides in Mexico City in the first 11 months of 2012.

    They can't destroy the real ones because The cartels would get mad. Better to piss off the kids then people who aren't afraid to kill them.

    Speaking of that cesspool of a country Mexico why did it take a Florida congresswoman and senator along with Bill O'reilly to get a former Marine out of a cartel controlled jail in Matamoras? Apparently white house Propaganda Czar Jay Carney didn't know anything about it. ed nichols

    So now the criminals will resort to lethal weapons instead of benign fake ones.

    Brilliant.
