Socialist Venezuelan Leader Steps Up Arming of Supporters After Outlawing, Confiscating Civilian Guns

The transformation to Communism is almost complete. As if enough people have not already died
in that sh!thole, murder rates will be soon on the rise.

"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. Maduro is boosting the number of armed
supporters in hopes of keeping control over the country from what he labels 'imperialist aggression.'

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.

'We are going to bring disarmament and peace,' Interior Minister Nestor Reverol told Reuters
during one confiscation event.

The Venezuelan government justified the gun bans and confiscations by saying they were needed to
combat the country's violent crime and murder epidemic. However, statistics reported by the
nonprofit Venezuelan Violence Observatory show the murder rate in Venezuela increased from 73
murders per 100,000 inhabitants the year the gun ban was instituted to 91.8 murders per 100,000
inhabitants in 2016. Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation show the United States
murder rate in the most recent year available, 2015, was 5 murders per 100,000 inhabitants."
