The first thing Chavez took were the guns

“Socialist dictator Hugo Chavez initially ran  a months-long amnesty program encouraging Venezuelans to trade their arms for electrical goods. That year, there were only 37 recorded voluntary gun surrenders, while the majority of seizures – more than 12,500 – were by force.”

Now, as Venezuelans flee and the state crumbles, no arms are legally obtainable.

“A former gun store owner inside Venezuela – who told Fox News he has now been relegated to only selling fishing supplies since the ban – said he can’t sell any type of weaponry – even a slingshot – and underscored that even BB ammunition and airsoft guns are only issued to police and military officers. The punishment for illicit carrying or selling a weapon now is 20 years behind bars.”

  1. Ain’t it strange that socialism so consistently comes to a dictatorship?

  2. Undermined by the rich who think they’ll be eaten last.
