Incidentally, Hitler did not take power, he was voted into power in 1933. Comes to show.
What is this world coming to when no one knows who Hitler/Stalin/Poa Pot were. :banghead: :banghead:
Those whe forget history are doomed to repeat it..
He never got a majority...but then again neither did Klinton.
Bill Klinton's wife. Oh, that's Hitlery, never mind!
They rarely see that giving up those rights will not produce the safety they desire; in fact, they will have much less.
It's sad though, because only 8 days from the referendum a lot of people still don't know exactly what they're voting for. Some people still don't know the difference between being able to own a gun and to carry one. Civilians can't carry guns since 2003 (although I believe those who already had the permit can still renew it). If approved, the referendum will allow gun sales only for those who can get the permit to carry them (police, military, etc).
Likewise, we still hear people justifying their vote in favor the gun ban with statements like "I wish guns didn't exist". Guess what? They exist, deal with it. Unfortunately the campaigns both in favor and against the gun ban lack depth and information, appealing to the emotional or showing incomplete statistics.
On a side note, I've read that Glock is waiting authorization from the Army to build a factory here. According to the article they plan to use Brazil as a production and exportation base for Latin America, Africa and part of Asia, especially China. This because the legislation of EU, which Austria is part of, do not allow the sale of armaments to countries in conflict. Unfortunately they have no interest in the civilian market here.
That and the gun ban could result with Taurus moving the whole production to Miami.
Take your non-shooting friends out and teach them how to shoot. Make them into gun owners. Especially people from non-traditional gun owning groups: women, gays, Jews, etc.
Another part of this is CCW reform. Once a state legalizes CCW there's no going back and there will be a core of people (CCW holders) who will strongly defend their right.
If more Brazilians owned guns this wouldn't even be coming up as an issue.
As a side note, Brazil has a reputation for being quite a dangerous place. All these dangerous Third World countries would get a lot more expats and foreign investors if these new arrivals could pack. I'm waiting for some smart country to say, "Come over here and invest, we will let you defend yourself."
Conceptually one of the primary purposes of a constitution is to prevent this sort of thing....
I thought Americans were the most undereducated nation.
I wonder if she knows who Gregory Peck is
