Jair Bolsonaro Lifts Gun Restrictions

Democrats might want to rethink their race-based strategy in light of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

Demographically, Brazil is the sort of country Dems like Joe Biden openly plan to make America into: a multiracial mélange where whites are a minority. Sure enough, Brazil has elected its share of corrupt socialists, just as Democrats expect post-Caucasian America to do.

This has predictably resulted in dysfunction and poverty. But then something less expected happened. People got sick of it and pushed back against the liberal establishment by electing Bolsonaro. This story indicates how things are currently working out for the progressive agenda:

Brazil has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the world, while the country of over 200 million inhabitants at the same time also has one of the highest murder rates, two concepts that Bolsonaro linked in his campaign for office last year. This week he kept his campaign promises and relaxed some controls on personal gun ownership and use adopted by past administrations.

“We are following a path totally opposed to authoritarianism, which always seeks to disarm the population,” said Bolsonaro on his social media account, which has nearly 12 million followers. “We are mainly attending the good citizen, who follows the laws and respects society.”

Stock for Brazilian gunmaker Taurus jumped 21% on the news.
