Venezuela has one of the highest murder-rates in the world and firearms are involved often enough. With an election looming the government has decided to ban all private ownership of firearms. That’s a convenient tool of dictators… In any event farmers are having problems with puma and jaguar killing cattle. What are they to do now? Raise more dogs?
Clearly, the government does not respect the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. As usual, this move will keep firearms out of the hands of decent people and give the criminals a monopoly on firearms just as the war on drugs did. The result will likely be an increase in crime, including murder as criminals gain power by decree.
