Venezuela bans private gun ownership

The government implemented a gun amnesty ahead of the introduction of the new law

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’

The government has been running a gun amnesty in the run-up to the introduction of the new law to try to encourage people to give up their illegal arms without fear of consequences.

Opinion:

Criminals do not buy arms over the counter!

Principle reason that Chaves is full of shit!

Banning private firearms and commercials sales of same, is a government knee jerk reaction because they ARE SCARED SHITLESS OF THE VENEZUELANS WHO HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF CHAVES!

And suspect that they will use the said firearms to rid themselves of the disease that governs Venezuela and have a free election.

It has NOTHING to do with safety! That is just the convenient excuse to make the people submit.

If you look at history, only tyrants and dictators disarm the people…

Watch who’s next… The USA! They will try to disarm the American people…

Good luck on that!
