Soon coming to America.|
Hugo Chavez's government says the ultimate aim is to disarm all civilians, but his opponents say the police and government may not have the capacity or the will to enforce the new law.
Just like American politicians. In America, they'll just say that gun owners are terrorists and disappear a few ones under NDAA...
Hell gun ownership in California/NY/Chicago is almost banned even if SCOTUS ruled against it.
Not to mention that Obama (and Romney too) will get to choose at least 1 or 2 new SCOTUS judges... anti-guns of course... which will mean a majority of SCOTUS against the second amendment...
In other news...
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.
18 000 murders/year in a country of 28 million... about 13 times more than in the USA... why is that?? Obviously not because of guns... even if they say that in the news...
Instead of banning guns, they could put drugs in the water to calm people down... :)
Reasons of high homicide rate...
Police salaries remain low, sapping motivation. And in a country with the highest inflation rate in the hemisphere, more than 30 percent a year, some officers have turned to supplementing their incomes with crimes like kidnappings.
Cops not being paid high enough (bankrupt cities and states, not to mention pensions), high inflation (dollar crash), align with the government or else (pro-republican/democrat), cutting money to state and cities (no money at the federal level)... me thinks this is what's COULD be like in the US post crash...
