-People often send me email questions I just can’t answer. Here are a few examples and you’ll see why...
-Believe it or not, I get a lot of emails about guns, gun ownership, gun laws and enforcement (or not)in Latin America. So here’s a nice long answer for those of you who want to know the details.
-I also get a lot of questions from green gringos who’ve been down here just once or twice. They’re shocked by the number shotgun toting guards they see; guards posted at banks, hotdog stands, hardware stores.... even guards riding shotgun in Coca Cola trucks! (Hey, whats wrong with guys with shotguns riding shotgun? Err..that seems right, huh?)
-On street crime in Latin America: the three main ways common criminals and gang members make their hits, and why those three types of crimes rarely involve expats.
-The state of game and sport hunting in Latin America
-What happens if you actually shoot someone down here? Does the “Gringo Advantage” kick in somehow too, or are you going to be the star of the next episode of “Locked Up Abroad”?
