A few years ago, the Socialist Government of Venezuela succeeded in what the Democrat Left has aspired to do in the USA: they outlawed the private ownership of firearms. Of course, this was done to “fight an epidemic of gun violence.” And, of course, “for the children.”
“A gun for every militiaman!” Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro said to uniformed militia members outside the presidential palace, Fox News reported on Tuesday. The Bolivarian militias, created by Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chavez, already number in the hundreds of thousands and are being used to supplement the regime’s armed forces. Maduro is boosting the number of armed supporters in hopes of keeping control over the country from what he labels “imperialist aggression.”
Now, you know, why we fight so hard to keep the Second Amendment alive.
