Narco Gun Bling on display in museum

    I have blogged many times about the Mexican drug lords’ bad taste when it comes to firearms. Now some of these weapons are on display in a museum located at the Mexican Ministry of Defense. Daily Mail reports

    The private museum, which is located in the country’s Ministry of Defence, opened in 1985 and is used by the military to educate soldiers to the lifestyles and culture of drug cartels.

    Open only to military officials and officer cadets in drug enforcement, the Museo de los Enervantes also serves to chronicle Mexico’s war on drugs.

    When it first opened, the museum featured a single room of confiscated cocaine and heroin.
