Venezuela bans private gun ownership

  • 1 June 2012

Venezuela has brought a new gun law into effect which bans the commercial sale of firearms and ammunition.

 

Until now, anyone with a gun permit could buy arms from a private company.

Under the new law, only the army, police and certain groups like security companies will be able to buy arms from the state-owned weapons manufacturer and importer.

 

The ban is the latest attempt by the government to improve security and cut crime ahead of elections in October

 

Venezuela saw more than 18,000 murders last year and the capital, Caracas, is thought to be one of the most dangerous cities in Latin America.

'Must do more'

In view of what is going on today the general population have no means to protect themselves and their personal property.

 

It would appear that is exactly what their "Central Government" wants for the citizens.

 

The is not enough food or living supplies for average people to survive and they are literially not being cared for by a failing government.

Venezuela's Maduro to provide guns to 400,000 loyalists amid peaking tension

Message 7 of 7

Published  April 18, 2017

 

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he will expand the number of civilians involved in armed militias, providing guns to as many as 400,000 loyalists.

The announcement came as Maduro's opponents are gearing up for what they pledge will be the largest rally yet to press for elections and a host of other demands Wednesday.

 

The Bolivarian militias, currently at approximately 100,000, were created by the late Hugo Chavez to assist the armed forces in the defense of his revolution from external and domestic attacks.

 

Speaking to thousands of militia members dressed in beige uniforms gathered in front of the presidential palace, Maduro said that vision remains relevant as Venezuela continues to face "imperialist aggression."

 

"A gun for every militiaman!" he cried.

 

Maduro's government claims foreign-backed opposition leaders are fomenting violence in an attempt to remove him from power. The opposition denies that assertion, saying it is Maduro himself who is responsible for Venezuela's woes, including triple-digit inflation, rising crime and food shortages.

 

They also blame Maduro for ordering security forces to use tear gas against protesters and failing to stop pro-government armed groups from attacking demonstrators.

During the act, Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez read a text saying the country is living a “crucial situation.”  

 

“The excessive ambition of [our] enemies threatens the peace and stability by carrying out a criminal agenda loaded with hate that includes terrorist acts, disturbances, looting, vandalism, different forms of violence against innocent people and public health facilities," Padrino said.

 

The defense chief said that the violent acts perpetrated during recent opposition protests, which to date have resulted in six deaths and about 100 arrests, are geared toward creating "anxiety in the public, anarchy and chaos, with the ignoble aim of toppling the democratic government."

Venezuela disarmed its citizenry in 2013.  Now their dictator is arming only the people that support him.  

 

I bet there are some people there that wish they had not given up their guns so easily in the name of "Public Safety"...
