Brazilian President Wants More People To Own Guns

From Bearing Arms:

Brazil has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world, and one of the highest homicide rates on the planet to go along with the restrictions on the ability to keep and bear arms. Until Bolsonaro was elected in 2018, there was little chance that the average resident of Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo would ever be granted a license to own a firearm, but in 2019 the president enacted some reforms that made gun ownership more of a possibility than it had been in the past. Earlier this year, the New York Times reported that there’s been a 65% increase in legal gun owners since the decree took effect.

Venezuelans Want More Gun Rights

From Breitbart:

This situation made Venezuelans propose what was a taboo measure in past years: the abolition of (or rebellion against) the anti-Gun Law that has helped the regime to control Venezuelan society.
Our conservative grassroots movement Rumbo Libertad has echoed the proposal as the only effective measure not only to defend life, liberty, and private property but also as a mechanism for the people to defend their sacred honor against tyranny.

Immigrant Warns America About Socialism

From USA Today:

The first time I couldn’t buy food at the grocery store, I was 15 years old. It was 2014 in Caracas, Venezuela, and I had spent more than an hour in line waiting. When I got to the register, I noticed I had forgotten my ID that day. Without the ID, the government rationing system would not let the supermarket sell my family the full quota of food we needed. It was four days until the government allowed me to buy more.

My family and I suffered from blackouts and lack of water. The regime nationalized electricity in 2007 in an effort to make electricity “free.” Unsurprisingly, this resulted in underinvestment in the electrical grid. By 2016, my home lost power roughly once a week.

Venezuela Bans Guns

Venezuela joins fellow communist regimes such as the USSR, China, North Korea, and the Nazis by banning gun ownership. I now expect crime to increase and would not be surprised by a crackdown on citizens from the government.

From the BBC:

Under the new law, only the army, police and certain groups like security companies will be able to buy arms from the state-owned weapons manufacturer and importer.
