Mexico dose have the right to gun ownership in their constitution.
Originally under article 10 of their constitution, they had one virtually identical to the US, then around WWI they changed it and made it 2 separate things, the right to keep and the right to bare so they have the right to keep one in their home, but need permission from the federal government to carry one in public.
They are very restrictive, there is only 1 gun store on a military base in Mexico city, and it takes months of paperwork to gain the privilege to exercise that right, and any calibers the military uses are restricted, and you only get something like a 3 day window at random to go buy your gun, and get it home, no matter how far from mexico city you live, and you can only buy a certain amount of ammo each year... But it is a constitutional right they have, even if it just amounts to words on paper in practice.
Guatemala is the only other country with a constitutional right to gun ownership to my knowledge.
Also, there are towns in Mexico that have
formed citizen militias to deal with the crime and kick out corrupt police.
