Maduro Arms Supporters, Having Confiscated Guns From Everyone Else

Venezuela is an object lesson not only in applied socialism, but also in the key role gun control plays in tyranny:

The socialist leader of Venezuela announced in a speech to regime loyalists his plan to arm hundreds of thousands of supporters after a years-long campaign to confiscate civilian-owned guns.

“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. …

The arming of Maduro’s supporters comes five years after Venezuela’s socialist regime outlawed the commercial sale and civilian ownership of firearms. Only the military, police, and groups like security companies can buy guns and only directly from one state-run arms company under the law passed in 2012, according to the BBC. The country recently doubled down on its gun ban through a combination of gun buybacks and confiscations in the summer of 2016.

In closely related news:

At least three people were killed in Venezuela when clashes broke out during anti-government protests described by opposition leaders as the “mother of all marches.” …

An hour into the march in Caracas, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the head, according to the Venezuela’s public ministry, which said it had started investigating the incident. The teenager, later identified as Carlos Moreno, died while undergoing surgery, a hospital representative told CNN. …

The ministry said it was also investigating the Wednesday afternoon shooting death of Paola Andreina Ramírez Gómez, 23, in plaza San Carlos in San Cristóbal, Tachira state. …

In a third death, Venezuelan National Guard Sgt. Niumar Jose San Clemente Barrios was fatally shot Wednesday night, said the public prosecutor’s office and Venezuela’s top human rights official, ombudsman Tarek William Saab.

There are a lot more angry, desperate Venezuelans than there are servants of the Maduro regime. Yet it appears the kill ratio is still in Big Government’s favor, thanks to gun control.

If armed, they could depose Maduro and start eating again.

    Too funny GM (Government Motors) gets Venezuelan socialist treatment they would love to foist on us.

  5. Torcer says:

    One does have to question the timing – you could lay odds that move is meant to provoke Trump into taking action so Maduro can claim ‘interference’ or something from the US.

    They tried making the same move a few weeks ago pushing troops into Columbia due to climate change…

    You’ll have to excuse me, I have to go clean out the ‘Maduro’ from the dog yard.

  6. MAS says:

    Yup they held off until their fellow traveler and the transformer of Government Motors into union hands got out of office . Either they were looking out for their homie or knew the wimp would not react as they hoped is the question.

  7. StephaneDumas says:

    Wouldn’t be ironic to see an armed Maduro supporter, for some reasons, do a 180 and get rid of Maduro?

    “The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”
    -Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003

    Nobody who wants to disarm you has your best interests at heart. They may suffer from irrational fear, which is bad enough. But all too often their fear is rational, since they plan to kill or subjugate you.

    No they can’t, we are about to witness yet again the only way that totalitarian ideology has ever been defeated in all of human history – Force of Arms. Whether it was Stalin, Hitler, southern slave holders, King George III, Caligula, the Hominids in 2001:Space Odyssey, makes no difference.

    THAT is the lesson we should be learning from Venezuela. Socialism failing is old news.
