It’s been 11 years since Vicente Fox was president of Mexico, but he continues to be a major commentator on American politics and has a deep dislike for President Trump. He’s trolled Trump on Twitter, lobbed f-bombs at him over his plans to build the border wall, and even accused him of being a Nazi.

For the most part, Americans have shrugged at Fox’ remarks, but a comment he made in the wake of Sunday’s horrific attack in Las Vegas has gotten him a massive backlash of replies:

“#GunControl is a topic that must be dealt with ASAP. American people must not be looking over their shoulder for their countrymen,” Fox wrote.

The reaction was swift:

Some Twitter users defended Fox’ comment, though:

What are Mexico’s gun laws like? According to The Blaze, guns are regulated to the point where “few Mexican citizens own guns legally,” and it’s sparked a debate over whether citizens should be better armed to defend themselves in a country that does, indeed, have the second highest homicide rate in the world.
