What could go wrong? Venezuelan president calls on citizens to voluntarily disarm

Last year in Venezuela, the government banned private gun ownership — and over 21,000 people were murdered. But acting President Nicolás Maduro doesn’t think self-defense should be a priority for citizens. At a rally yesterday, he called on Venezuelans to surrender their weapons, insisting that only police and the military should possess firearms.

No doubt this will end well:

Though we clearly haven’t reached this point ourselves, thankfully, Maduro’s words should have a familiar ring.

As blogger Jorge Bonilla notes:

Maybe, just maybe it should give us pause that a budding totalitarian sounds a lot like our lefty gungrabbers shark-tank.net/2013/03/12/vid… #2A

p style=”padding-left:30px”>Maduro’s unvarnished call for disarmament mirrors our own progressive gun-grabbers right here in the good ‘ole U.S. of A, and should deliver a shocking wake-up call to anyone with even the slightest vested interest in defending their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  Maduro doesn’t even bother with hunting and self-defense non-sequiturs, or try to make goofy recommendations á la Shotgun Joe; he goes right to “give me the guns” mode.

Government gun grabbers put the public in more danger, not less.
