If ever there was a news article, that totally vindicates our founding fathers, and places the brightest spotlight squarely on the Democrats, liberals, progressives, socialists and communists in the United States, it's this one. This is what they want for the citizens of the United States. This is precisely the tyrannical regime they want for us, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. They would love ALL weapons to be confiscated, and protesters (read that conservatives) against their tyrannical regime would be shot like dogs in the streets. Read the article, it's frightening! They never go for our guns outright in one swoop, they start incrementally and they institute hate for American history in the schools to teach our children to hate/fear guns. Then when those generations come of age, they willing give up their guns without firing a shot for the good of all. Then the draconian communism begins in earnest. Pelosi, Feinstein and the like are working on it as we speak. The idiot citizens in Venezuela got their guns taken quickly because they've always had ****ty govts. But in the US is won't go that way in beginning, it'll start slow and ramp up.CUCUTA, Venezuela/Colombia border – As Venezuela continues to crumble under the socialist dictatorship of President Nicolas Maduro, some are expressing words of warning – and resentment – against a six-year-old gun control bill that stripped citizens of their weapons.
“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”
Under the direction of then-President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan National Assembly in 2012 enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” The law took effect in 2013, with only minimal pushback from some pro-democracy opposition figures, banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all - except government entities.
Luis Farias, 48, from Margarita, said that gun violence was indeed bad when guns were freely available for purchase. But it became much worse after the gun ban was passed. “Now the criminal mother is unleashed,” Farias said. “Trying to ban guns didn’t take guns off the streets. Nobody cares about the law; the criminals don’t care about the law.”
