Tiempos de Guerrero.

Business people of the Confederation of the Mexican Republic (COPARMEX)in the capital of Guerrero, Chilpancingo, are buying weapons as well as its workers facing insecurity that prevails today.

The measure is applied in seven companies, where about 35 workers have been trained in shooting ranges and in the use of small-bore weapons.

This occurs despite that Interior Minister, Miguel Angel Osorio, stated last week in Guerrero that business people are only allowed to have weapons at home and not carry them in public or in their businesses.

Coparmex president in Chilpancingo, Adrian Alarcon, said business owners would not carry weapons in public, but justified the use of them in their businesses.

Most of the trade premises are located on first floor or adjoining the owners’ house, becoming them a part of their home, he said.

In coming days, business people will have a meeting with military authorities of the 50th Armored Infantry Battalion, where they will ask for support, to train their workers.
