Destruction of Surplus Firearms Owned by the State (Eliminación de los Excedentes de Armas Ligeras en Poder del Estado)

En el Ejército y Fuerza Aérea Mexicanos no se tienen programas para la eliminación de armas de fuego y municiones excedentes, por no estar el material de guerra en esa situación.

Respecto al armamento de los Cuerpos de Seguridad Publica, la S.D.N. autoriza que esas corporaciones únicamente cuenten con un arma de fuego corta y un arma de fuego larga por cada elemento operativo y el material de guerra que resulta inútil lo concentran a las instalaciones militares para su destrucción.

[S.D.N.: Secretaría de Defensa Nacional]

Translated content:

Neither the Army nor the Air Force has programmes to destroy surplus arms and ammunitions, as these materials are operative.

The Ministry of Defence only allows public security agencies to own one short gun and one long gun per agent. Inoperative weapons are sent to military facilities in order to be destroyed.
