‘Everybody has to buy a rifle, damn it!’ Brazilian President Bolsonaro tells his supporters — RT World News

https://www.rt.com/news/533329-bolsonaro-brazil-guns-coronavirus/

Armed people will never be enslaved, Brazil’s president, Jair
Bolsonaro, who is trailing in polls for the 2022 election, told a crowd
of his supporters in the capital Brasilia, urging everyone to get a
rifle as soon as possible.
Bolsonaro’s ratings have
crumbled amid the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen Brazil become one of
the world’s worst-affected countries with almost 21 million infections
and more than 578,000 deaths. A recent poll by XP/Ipespe revealed that
only 24% of those surveyed plan to vote for the 66-year-old when he runs
for reelection next year, while his leftist opponent, former president
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, received the support of some 40%.

The
rightist president has already threatened to not accept the outcome of
the 2022 election, claiming it could be rigged against him due to the
alleged vulnerabilities of the country’s purely electronic voting
system. He’s now facing an investigation over those statements, which
were never backed by any convincing proof.

One group of Brazilians who have been increasingly happy with
Bolsonaro since he took office in 2019 are gun enthusiasts, whom he once
again addressed on Friday.

“Everybody has to buy a rifle, damn it! Armed people will never be enslaved,” the head of state told a crowd of supporters outside his official residence, the Alvorada Palace.

He acknowledged that weapons “cost a lot,” but insisted that those who oppose guns should stop nagging people who want and can afford to buy them.

During
his campaign for office, Bolsonaro vowed to relax Brazil’s gun laws so
that citizens could protect themselves from the country’s rampant crime
and violence.

And he kept that promise, issuing almost a dozen
decrees that made firearms, including semi-automatic assault rifles,
more easily available to the public. Some of them, however, were
modified by the National Congress.

The president’s latest
initiative in February allowed Brazilian citizens to own up to six guns
and stripped back federal police and army oversight of firearms
ownership. Those with hunting licenses are now free to buy 30 guns,
while sports shooters can have as many as 60.

Taliban Orders All Citizens to Surrender Privately Owned Weapons Within a Week. Hear That, America?

Louder with Crowder

Brodigan

August 28, 2021

If you follow the gun debate at all, you’ve heard pro-gun people say when socialists and/or authoritarians take over a country, the first thing they do is restrict a citizen’s right to firearms. Those people, the pro-gun people, are the people we call “on the right side of history:”

Because if you look at the Taliban taking over Afghanistan, the first thing they did was start confiscating the people’s guns. Saying that the people didn’t “need” them anymore. Sound familiar?

Now, Afghans have a week to hand over their firearms. I’m assuming, “or else.” This is from the Taliban spokesman. Yes, the Taliban has a spokesman:

“Announcement of the security organs of the Islamic Emirate: In Kabul, all those who have the means, weapons, ammunition and other government goods are informed to hand over the mentioned objects to the relevant organs of the Islamic Emirate within a week. So that there is no need for the offenders to be prosecuted or dealt with legally if they are discovered.”

These next items are things that have happened in the news. Whether or not you think any combination of them may be related is on you.

‘Proud Boys’ leader sentenced to jail for burning BLM banner in DC and having rifle magazine — RT USA News

https://www.rt.com/usa/532865-proud-boys-leader-tarrio-jailed/

Leader of the ‘Proud Boys’ group Enrique Tarrio was sentenced to
a total of 300 days in jail for bringing a loaded rifle magazine into
Washington, DC and setting a Black Lives Matter banner on fire outside a
church.
Tarrio was given 240 days
in prison – 90 of them suspended – and a fine for the unlawful
possession of the magazine, and another 60 days for destroying the
banner. Judge Harold L. Cushenberry Jr. of DC Superior Court handed down
the sentence on Monday.

He
is expected to report to the same DC jail where the hundreds of people
charged in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol are currently being
held.

“This court must respect the right of any citizen to peacefully assemble, protest, and make his or her views known on issues,” Cushenberry said at the sentencing, according to CNN.

“But
Mr. Tarrio’s conduct in these criminal cases vindicate none of these
democratic values. Instead, Mr. Tarrio’s actions betrayed them.”

Tarrio “clearly, intentionally and proudly crossed the line
from peaceful protest and assembly to dangerous and potentially violent
criminal conduct,” the judge added.

The ‘Proud Boys’ chairman
wasn’t actually in DC on January 6. He was arrested the day prior – at
which point the police found the rifle magazines in his possession – for
the alleged “hate crime” of setting the banner on fire during a demonstration in December, and ordered to leave the city.

At
Monday’s sentencing hearing the pastor of the church from which Tarrio
took the Black Lives Matter banner said that its burning “sparked feelings of hurt, anger, confusion.”

“I made a grave mistake,” Tarrio told the judge after that testimony, adding that he would “like to profusely apologize” for his actions, describing them as “wrong.”

That was quite a change from his statements back in December,
when he admitted to being responsible for burning the sign. He said he
didn’t do it out of hate but “out of love,” calling BLM “a racist movement that has terrorized the citizens of this country.”

Some politicians want to confiscate guns from civilians. I might be talking about what happened half a century ago in Cuba. Gun confiscation happened again a decade ago in Venezuela. It happened again last week when the Taliban took control of Afghanistan. The excuses are the same, and the results are more government violence and […]

As far as being ARMED, Not Being ABLE and not being ALLOWED are two completely different things. Learn the Difference.

Having the Ability and Means to Protect Yourself and Your Family Should be an Internationally Protected Human Right. Most of the Places that are suffering from Human Rights Violations via an oppressive Government or Criminal Organization (Drug Cartels) are typically living off an unarmed populace.

We must Understand History. The correlation between a Government or a Group DISARMING a populace is almost always immediately followed by the Govt. or Group turning that Populace into some kind of Resource. (Forced Labor, Medical Experiments, Mass Extermination.)

Taliban Collect Weapons From Civilians In Kabul As They “No Longer Need Personal Protection” The Taliban were quick to humiliate the Biden administration, taking over the country just days after US forces departed, but now that they are fully in control, they appear set on pursuing one of progressive America’s core tenets: confiscating weapons.
