    Brazil offers a great example of what would happen to the US if the dreams of the antis became real. THere is already a near-total ban on firearms. They have passed law after law after law, and all they have accomplished is to create a world where lawful gun owners are forbidden to own anything this side of an antique levergun, while criminals can buy an AK-47 on any street corner. It's a nation gone mad. Apparently, they are idiotic enough to think that yet ANOTHER law is going to make a difference. They will end up drowning in their own blood.

    Awash? Sounds like what they need is training for the law abiding citizen so that they can cull the criminals a bit.

    I find it of interest that a senior committee member favoring the ban has the last name of "Greenhalgh" (Luiz Eduardo). In the Washington D.C. area about 30 years ago we had a major gun grabber named William Greenhalgh (aka. Greenhog) who was Chairman of the Washington area Council of Governments. He was pushing to implement area wide gun control laws cross jurisdictions. He did not last very long in the Chairmanship, or in politics in general.

    William Greenhalgh made the mistake of holding public hearings on more gun control laws in a large school auditorium. He was met with thousands of rowdy and hostile pro-gunners and he pretty much freaked out. The local Montgomery County LEs appeared to be freaking too when they found themselves in a very large place and thousands of gunners jeering, hooping and howlering. It was one rough neck looking crowd if ever I saw one. After that Greenhalgh tried holding secret hearings. That did not work either.

    I wonder if the two Greenhalgh are related?

    With experts like that, Brazil sure doesn't need air-brained leftist extremists.
