Venezuelans Now Regret Letting Government Take Their Guns Away

by J.C McCallum

Not long ago, millions of Venezuelans decided to become loved by the left and voted away their right to keep and bear arms. But now that their government has descended into a socialist nightmare where everyone is starving to death, these same people are now regretting their votes to give away their right to self-defense.

It is an object lesson for the folks here in the U.S. who want to travel down the same path as Venezuela; gun-free, socialism and all.

Venezuela implemented its gun ban six years ago before their world took its last steps into the living hell it has become. Now they have no defense against the junta and the socialist criminals controlling their nation.

Trending:

“Hollywood’s favorite strongman banned arms for citizens. It has not ended well for those starving to death under a socialist dictatorship,” actor James Woods noted on Twitter.

And boy is he right.

As Fox News reported on Friday:

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Under the direction of then-President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan National Assembly in 2012 enacted the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” with the explicit aim to “disarm all citizens.” The law took effect in 2013, with only minimal pushback from some pro-democracy opposition figures, banned the legal commercial sale of guns and munitions to all – except government entities.

Naturally, Chavez sponsored a “gun buy-back” program before implementing his confiscation. Few Venezuelans were much interested in the government’s cash. So, by the end of the year, Chavez forcefully seized 12,500 guns. But that was just the start

And when Chavez mercifully died, the country’s next president,  Maduro, continued the confiscation policies…

In 2014, with Nicolás Maduro at the helm following Chavez’s death but carrying through his socialist “Chavista” policies, the government invested more than $47 million enforcing the gun ban – which has since included grandiose displays of public weapons demolitions in the town square.

And since then? Well, the government has become despotic and has run roughshod over the Venezuelan people, jailing and shooting them at will. And the people now have no defense to stop Maduro from subjugating them.

“Venezuela shows the deadly peril when citizens are deprived of the means of resisting the depredations of a criminal government,” said David Kopel, a policy analyst, and research director at the Independence Institute and adjunct professor of Advanced Constitutional Law at Denver University. “The Venezuelan rulers – like their Cuban masters – apparently viewed citizen possession of arms as a potential danger to a permanent communist monopoly of power.”

No doubt.

Make no mistake, America. This is what Democrats want to happen here, America. They want the American people disarmed so that there is no resistance to their authoritarian reign. Democrats are fascists at heart but they know that your privately held firearms are the biggest threat to their power. Don’t give away your protection willingly.

That’s exactly what the powers want, Don’t give it to them. It will be just like the Palestinians. You’ll throw a rock, and then the other side launch 10 hellfire missiles against you and call it a fair fight,

There’s a time and place to act, that time is not now.

The powers are the ones that need to be scared. When the powers that be fear the people there is Liberty. Expose the shadows to the light of day. What the people decide to do after that is justice.

They wouldn’t try an outright ban here until we the target have been “softened” by economic problems, ebola/convenient pandemic of the moment, civil/race unrest, political/Trump assissination, etc. They have plenty of plays, many in trial run right now. Notice how failsafe systems like twitter, nintendo have been shut down and compromised lately? They have protection runtime systems better than the DOD, yet they’ve experienced multiple failures lately. It’s a trial run to be able to selectively shut down comm, to control the narrative while they set in motion their plan to disarm and kill us. As my buddies in the bayou would say, it ain’t nuttin nice.

I don’t think they “hope” we will become another Venezuela, etc. I think they are too stupid to realize that is what we will become. We have a political party (dumocrats) that reek of unethical, self-serving, lying behavior trying to take this country down.

They know exactly what they are doing, it’s not the dummies it’s the global rich that think they can take over the world.

Rest assured, the America cowards aka sheep will follow lock step and hand over their only defense. They are a dumb bunch without a doubt.

It’s being set up as we converse now. The Chinese Troops are here on U.S. Military bases. The U.N. Troops are already here on Free Trade Zone Areas. The U.N. Vehicles are already positioned. The Mercenaries are and have been flooding in from the South and Northern borders for years. They have been transported by your taxpayer money to cities all over the country. The F.E.M.A. Camps are getting staffed and stocked.

Your local police have been militarized.

Your Representatives sold you out completely long ago. Once they can not support the phony paper fiat currency scam fraud any longer, they will abandon the country to their safe places, and leave you and I to fight the invaders. They sold them the land long ago. They sent the gold to the east long ago, Ever wonder why they have never allowed anything but a government accountant to count the gold? No private entity is allowed near Fort Nothing In It Knox.

But, once the guns go…..they will kill us. History tells you so, you just refuse to listen or learn. R.I.P. Amerika

‘Ug, Socialism good, Capitalism bad, guns for civilians, bad. No guns for civilians, good. Conservatives for Trump, bad. Liberals against Trump, good. Wall to keep illegals out, bad. Welcoming illegals, good. Liberals violent, good. Conservatives peaceful, bad. Murdering unborn children, good. Allowing them right to live, bad. Destroy USA, good. Build it up, bad.’ Any questions? If agree OK. If not, keep your mouth shut.’

Level of instruction in Public schools and publicly funded colleges and universities and fully endorsed by the MSM and far too many members in Congress.

If you disagree with this post, “Deal with it.”

Do they regret voting for Hugo Chavez and having everything being “free”? Reminds me of the morons cheering when one of the Democrat Communists campaign on being Santa Claus.
