    Amazing! There are fewer sheep in this world than I thought.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9797322/

    Interesting stats though - 39000 killed by guns in Brazil each year (population 100 million fewer than than the US) which saw 30000 gun fatalities last year.

    But in the US - 17000 of those fatalities are suicides (per CDC) - over 50%. Wonder if the same proportion holds in Brazil or if the bulk of those Brazilian fatalities are true die-hard gang banging type violence. Which would make Brazil less safe to visit then...um...Irag!

    Is it just me, or is there starting to be less tolerance for victim disarmament throughout the nation and the world?

    We can always hope.

    That article was dripping with leftist slant.

    Brazil is on the front line of the drug war, which accounts for some of the astounding amounts of violence they have there.

    Absolutely!
    (from YAHOO.com)

    Just something else to blame the NRA for.

    I'm betting the anti-gunners did a lot of translating for their own side.

    Everytime an elitist, liberal, rights stealer gets there panties in a wad like this due to the NRA's involvement I feel that my dues have been well spent.

    Kudos for Brazil.

    Does she mean the Second Amendment is a "pseudo right?"

    As if the 2nd Amendment is the REASON we can bear arms. No, it's just the writen statement that we can - we can, regardless of if you or anyone else says we can or can't.


    It's a human right, not a law gifted to a select few.

    God bless Brazil.

    I'm glad they recognized the necessity to bear arms against those who prey upon the good citizens. Disarmament of the good leads directly to the predominance of the evil. Always has, always will.

    Good job, Brazil!

    I'm sure the international grabber movement is disappointed they couldn't trick another nation into reducing themselves to unarmed sheep.

    An important point is that Brazil has no constitutional 2A equivalent. Brazillians sent the grabbers packing not on legal principle, but because they believe they have a natural right to armed self-defense.

    Great job Brazil!

    I am very glad that you fought off this lastest attempt of the globalists to force their will on you!

    I listened to the BBC tonight - hilarious! The Brit common-tator acted as if the Brazilians were crazy, with statements like, "what went wrong in Brazil". Unbelievable bias!

    Rebecca Peterson was also on - what an elitist! She basically blamed some shadowy conspiracy for hypnotizing the people right before the election. She actually said, "people believe that arming themselves is the best way to protect themselves, which of course isn't true".

    I'd have to question HER sanity!

    Great job Brazil! :) :) :D

    I couldn't stop laughing:

    Looks to me like the anti-gun crowd were the ones imported from the United States. Even more "interesting" that this quote was from someone who was herself imported to Brazil from the United States. But it is the campaign against the ban was "imported from the United States", which of course is meant to de-legitimize it :banghead:

    That made me laugh. Maybe it's time for Brazil to re-write its Constitution?

    While the Australian government may choose to deny RKBA...

    This denial does NOT mean that our 'right' does not exist!:fire:

    While our situation distresses me, I'd argue that the effective definition of a 'right' is simply commonly permissible behaviour.

    The Australian Gov't wants us to think so, Adept.....

    "While our situation distresses me, I'd argue that the effective definition of a 'right' is simply commonly permissible behaviour."
    **********************************************************


    But if you apply the belief and intent of the authors of the U.S. Constitution AND the founders of the U.S. Bill of Rights....

    A "Right" is unalienable and endowed by the Creator.

    It is NOT a gift from any government.

    I'm a Yank and an Aussie, so I make a big deal out of the distinction.

    Little Johnny is denying us our "Right" to keep and bear arms.:cuss:

    Any of you other Aussies (if you're still here that is) catch the news story the other day? The doctor in northern QLD with the "huge arsenal".

    Ok, I'll ask the obvious:

    "How huge is it?"

    Now waiting for the punch line .....

    Well, actually that would be Spanish...They speak Portuguese in Brasil...But my portuguese is rusty (haven't been to Brasil in a few years), so I don't know what they'd say!

    Any way, good thing that common sense has prevailed...I really love brazil, and hope to get back there soon...
