Things are very bad down there in Brazil -- I suspect overall this will be a very positive move:

I don't expect the hoplophobes to agree of course.

Well, yeah. Do you think arachnaphobes would support a bill to introduce spiders into every building in London? Kinda goes without saying.

hoplophobia- morbid fear of being chased by rabbits or kangaroos swinging axes.

In a quid pro quo kind of way, are our lawmakers going to find a way to make it easier for us to control our personal body hair?

Wow, Walmart has been in Brazil for 20 years and it took this long? Jeez, the cigarette lighter borrowers have been getting a free ride too long.

If liveleak has taught me anything it's that Brazil is essentially a modern-day version of the Wild West, so this seems the next logical step.

These would be 16 year old anecdotes at this point but I have some interesting wild west like stories from Brasil...maybe tomorrow though, I'm a bit sleepy.

This part of the article was telling :

The draft law is the latest move by what has been dubbed by opponents as the Bullets, Beef and Bible Caucus in Brazil’s congress. Politicians linked to the security services, big agricultural firms and evangelical Christians consolidated their power in last year’s elections and have advanced a series of conservative measures.

Among the other laws being debated are a plan to lower the age of criminal responsibility to 16; narrow the country’s robust definition of slave labor; weaken indigenous tribes’ right to claim their ancestral lands; exclude homosexual couples from the definition of family; and criminalize abortion in cases of rape.


Yeah, this will go over well for them LOL. It sounds like they have already elected their version of clown car Republicans.

As I said (but to expand upon it), this may be a very interesting demonstration of what would happen in the USA.

Since more people will have guns, there will be less crime and violence in general. Just like in the United States.
