The right to bear arms is the cornerstone of a free society. Totalitarian regimes throughout history ban private arms ownership. The Bolivarian Progressive regime of Venezuela ha now banned gun ownership. This means only Hugo Chavez’s cronies will have the guns.
Venezuela has brought a new gun law into effect which bans the commercial sale of firearms and ammunition.
Until now, anyone with a gun permit could buy arms from a private company.
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.
The ban is the latest attempt by the government to improve security and cut crime ahead of elections in October
Venezuela saw more than 18,000 murders last year and the capital, Caracas, is thought to be one of the most dangerous cities in Latin America.
You can bet most of those 18,000 murders where committed by supporters of Hugo Chavez. This is just a way for the Bolivarians to solidify their control over Venezuela. Don’t think it can’t happen here. The Right to bear Arms is crucial to our freedoms.
