Wait, did Gump just perhaps admit that driving is more dangerous that guns?

The State Dept DID ban all of their employees from travelling to Cozumel. ;)

The Mexican government says..."no problem, just an electrical fire on the boat" :lol: Whom do YOU believe? The travel advisory does not extend to Cancun...but they are close.

I imagine if you were a Chinaman you'd think differently... I host them all the time.... they're afraid to cross the street here... a trip to Cancun is no more dangerous than a trip to any other tourist area in the world.... but you stay home... I'll get better prices....

The thing is this is a specific, evolving threat so one can't cite past statistics except perhaps in OTHER areas of Mexico like Jalisco where criminal gangs are well established.

I wonder what a criminal narcotraficante gang would want with a ferry in a spot on the Caribbean not far from South America? Hmmmmm? Probably just weekend fun for the family and gang bangers
