Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox scolded Americans about our gun laws in the wake of the horrific Las Vegas attack, and Americans understandably called him out on his apparent hypocrisy.

What did President Fox say?

Fox took to his Twitter account to advocate for gun control.

“[Gun Control] is a topic that must be dealt with ASAP,” he said. “American people must not be looking over their shoulder for their countrymen.”

Prior to this tweet he sent out a more sanguine message, saying, “This morning, we mourn for the victims in Las Vegas. Such a heartless and senseless act of violence. We must #PrayForTheWorld to find peace.”

Fox’s comments fall in line with the response from many on the left who clamored for gun control even as the details of the terrible attack were still being released and processed.

What was the response?

Many online didn’t appreciate the politicization from Fox, especially given the exceeding violence in his own country despite gun control being implemented there for years.
