Venezuela Update

Mike Huckabee, April 19, 2017

Five years ago, the socialist government of Venezuela banned and confiscated civilian-owned guns, promising to “bring disarmament and peace.” Now, amid rising unrest over shortages of basic necessities, President Nicolas Maduro has decided that gun ownership is okay…for his supporters. He plans to arm hundreds of thousands of militia members who are helping government forces keep the people under control. His slogan for this new drive: “A gun for every militiaman!”

And that’s why anyone who really understands why the Founders gave us the Second Amendment knows what a load of horse apples it is to argue that they only meant for uniformed militia members to have guns. But any liberals who do believe that should feel free to move to the socialist paradise of Venezuela, where both the governmental/economic system and now the gun policy are exactly what you’ve been lobbying for.
