I think of it more as the glories of anti gun policies. It's really independent of socialist/democratic/autocratic/communist axis.


This is worth a read...

Quote:
The success of anti gun policies depends on how many guns are out in the culture, how effective law enforcement is, and theculture.

A few years ago, in response to national outcry, the government of Venezuela took steps to fix this problem.

There was too much death, too much crime. So they imposed strict gun control laws to stop the murderers and thieves.

The end result? Violent crime actually increased. And Caracas is now one of the most dangerous cities in the world.

But across the Andes is another city that used to be one of the most dangerous in the world– Bogota.

Years ago, Bogota led the region in murder. And they imposed their own strict gun control laws trying to clean up the streets.

It worked. Bogota became safer. There was less murder. Less crime. Less violence.

But how could the same policy engineer completely different results in two cities?

Guess it takes Venezuelans' minds off the fact they're running out of food.

Just think if they did that every day in the US it would only take 41,019.5... YEARS and we would be a gun free society!

The Venezuelan government missed a real PR opportunity here. They could have donated these guns to poor Americans to defend themselves with, like they did heating oil.

I'm guessing that trying to defend themselves with heating oil didn't really work for the poor Americans, so the Venezuelan opted for a different strategy this time.

If boiling oil can work for those rich bastards in the castles it can work for a trailer park!
