Description

Pedro de Ampudia, the Governor of Nuevo Leon, and Santiago Vidaurri, his Secretary, announce that the President of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, has allowed Northern Mexican soldiers to carry guns without licenses in “Oriente y Occidente” (Northern) states, but that outside those states, they need licenses. Santa Anna was exhibiting gun control by requiring licenses because he was scared of being overthrown. Multiple versions of this letter were communicated across judges in Mexico to announce the decree, and this letter was sent to Sir. Justice 1 of Peace from Hualahuise.
