Kyle Busch Violated The Gun Laws In Mexico While On Vacation Earlier

A weapon and ammo were found in Kyle Busch's suitcase late last month, which led to his detention at a Mexican airport. This Monday, the NASCAR driver recognised the event and apologised, calling it "a mistake." This month, a judge in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo—home to the beach resorts of Cancun and Tulum—sentenced Busch to 312 years in jail and mandated that he pay a $1,000 fine for possessing a rifle and ammunition.

According to the federal attorney general's office, the judge chose to impose a conditional sentence and permit Busch to depart Mexico after posting a bond. The amount he paid was kept a secret by the office.

Busch, a two-time NASCAR champion and the most successful driver competing in the Cup Series, recognised the issue in a social media post on Monday. I comply to all weapon regulations and have a legal concealed carry licence from my local government, but I made a mistake by forgetting it was in my bag, he claimed.

I was detained until the case was handled because the firearm was discovered. Busch stated, "I had no intention of taking a firearm into Mexico and was unaware of Mexican legislation." When it was uncovered, I cooperated fully with the law, took the punishment, and left for North Carolina.

"I sincerely apologise for my error and thank everyone for their respect as we came to a resolution." "My family and I believe this matter is resolved."

According to a NASCAR spokeswoman, Busch alerted the governing body of the incident on Tuesday and is not being penalised. Busch, who is in his first season as a Richard Childress Racing driver, came in third in his preseason exhibition race on Sunday night at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Busch's new team owner, Richard Childress, is a well-known NRA figure and an enthusiastic hunter.

On January 27, after attempting to leave Cancun's international airport, Busch was detained by the National Guard. According to a statement from the attorney general's office, a.380 calibre pistol with six hollow-point bullets was found in his luggage after it was scanned at the private flight terminal.

On January 29, Busch appeared before a judge, who authorised the arrest. Busch received his punishment on February 3rd, the statement said.

The judge will then schedule a second hearing to determine the specifics of Busch's conditional punishment and the location of his fine payment. He may escape any further incarceration.

The right to own a handgun and hunting rifles for self-defense and recreational purposes is protected by the constitution of Mexico, however getting a properly registered pistol is extremely difficult, and the only place to buy one is from the military. However, there are a tonne of illicit firearms in the nation, the majority of which are bought in the US and brought into Mexico illegally.

In August of last year, bullets were fired as Busch and his family were at the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis. They were able to securely and without incident exit the mall.
