I heard that the security is poor in Mexico city. Yet I felt it was not poor in other cities, especially in the rural area. So I felt deceived when I saw a man holding an assault rifle during strolling. He kept his hands in pockets as if he held nothing. And he smiled while looking at me.

Apparently, the rifle was M16 rifle, which was also adopted as the standard service rifle by the U.S. military. Perhaps, this city was also tough.
