Lets see...

Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.... Do they have anything in common?

Castro did it in 1959, now Chavez in 2012.

"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced on Tuesday that the government’s anti-crime program, the Full Life mission, will be launched in June. The program aims to bring together all the government’s citizen security policies into a holistic approach toward tackling violent crime and transforming the judicial and prison systems."

Pure communist rhetoric.

I'm sure this will work well.

Just look at how peaceful and safe other countries where arms are forbidden to the public have become.

Just wow.

"The Presidential Commission for Disarmament and Control of Arms and Ammunition".

I think we have that here, it just hasn't been given an official name.

"In Venezuela carrying a firearm is legal with a permit; however the commission has previously stated that the government’s citizen security policies are aimed at the eventual disarmament of the civilian population."

Scary stuff.

See! See! I told you so.
I wrote a thread not long ago about how the government would use backdoor gun control in the name of health care.

The key words are "Full Life" and "holistic", these are words that imply health care.

Gun violence in the community is a community health issue. Banning firearms is a community health intervention. You would be hard pressed to prove that gun violence is not a community health problem.

I hope, I really truly hope that 2A rights attorneys and organizations are considering this type of backdoor gun control.

ATF? Brandy campaign?

Sure, ATF, DOJ, DHS, Brady, McCarthy, Hillary, Napolitano, Obama and "under the radar".

But is it an organized effort, or just a general idea? Maybe they all meet every third Wednesday at midnight under the old oak tree to discuss their evil plans.

Actually, gun control in Venezuela could be considered health care, as they have a very high murder rate, and something like 75% of the murders there are committed with firearms.

Strict gun control and permitting processes were enacted in 2002, but firearm murders have increased since then. I guess the criminals don't apply for permits. Now, HugoCare has seized all of the ammunition from the stores and they want to collect all the firearms. Somehow, I don't think this diagnosis and treatment is going to cure the illness. In this case, "holistic" means they are still going to be finding victims full of holes.

This has more to do with the fact that he's a dictator and has been accused of rigging elections than anything else. He knows good and well an armed populace could equal revolution.

Likely. They seized over 800,000 rounds of ammo because Chavez knows that one of them probably has his name on it.

That's what I meant. He knows he would end up like Gaddafi.

Somehow I doubt things will end well for the average Joe in Venezuela. The criminals will continue only slightly inconvenienced by the "ban" while everyone else will have to rely on the "government’s citizen security policies" for protection...sure, who wouldn't feel safe?

"Relations minister Tareck El Aissami "....This name does not sound very Venezualan to me. Hugo hiring help from Iran?
