    Yeah, let's see how safe they feel when the crime & murder rates jump. Then again, this is Brazil we're talking about--how would they tell??? :uhoh:

    No doubt they will be confiscated based on the new 'registration' db they're creating. If the referendum to ban holds.

    Well, if this happens, it will only be because the law isn't strict enough. So they'll tighten the screws some more.

    And when that doesn't work either . . .

    Brazil has steadily been moving towards a authoritarian state ever since they elected the Communist, Lula. Also they have been fighting a low level insurgency against various criminal gangs and in recent times the conflict has moved up a notch. 40,000 killed my gunfire alone each year is pretty much a full blown guerilla war.

    Don't think I am bashing Brazil though, my favorite girlfirend of all time was Brazilian. She hated guns though. In Florida a lot of cops just dress casually and wear a badge and gun on there belt. She would often complain even about the cops having guns if they were not in uniform.

    There women, food and beaches are wonderful its just there culture is one of corruption, class warfare and violence. Its a country whose was born from the slave trade and it has inherited all the problems one would associate with such a dreadful beginning. I don't think the average Brazilian would understand the privilege and responsility of owning and carrying a gun for self-defense. Its a shame because it would probably be the perfect fix for there crime problem.
