I am not a Brazilian lawyer, but I don't think they have a "2nd Amendment", so they've got that going for them.

From a different article: Relaxing gun control has long been a key platform of Bolsonaro's, although 72 percent of Brazilians don't approve of his plans to arm civilians, according to a 2021 Datafolha opinion poll...

I believe a similar percentage of Americans want more/better gun control.

We've seen how that worked out.

Brazil already deals with a lot of gang violence. Adding guns to it would really turn it into a mini-US.

"Samurai Caçador is not his real name. That would be Mardqueu Silvio França Filho. But six years ago, as França was looking to grow his influence, he picked Samurai-military nobility from medieval Japan"

I really love when Vice explains things. I never would have known what a "Samurai" was. Am I pronouncing that correctly? Sammy-Rhy? I eat rice any time I can, so i'm basically Samurai too.

From what I know of Brazil (and that's everything I've learned from the internet) apparently everyone there already had guns and a vast supply of "off duty police officers".


(Guns are an unnecessary threat to pretty much everyone for the record, and I would be glad to see them removed from existence)

Originating in the US?  Sure...but I'm looking at our friends the Russians for their ability to amplify the effects of a previously somewhat banal disorder by funding the GOP/NRA

/Wait, those are different things?
 
2022-09-26 12:41:04 PM  
This is bad, but I kind of see it.

I can't argue that the NRA and gun lobby in the US has been massively successful politically for being only a 45 billion dollar -ish per year industry. The gun industry's political representation on the right is massive compared to any other similar sized industry. That's not far off from say... the cheese industry.

It makes a lot of sense that a far-right organization would invite in such a successful far-right ally.

They already had a big gun thing in that country (and a ton of gun violence). They have had a ton of manufacturing forever. I have a shotgun and a rifle (Imbel FAL) made there. Just now it's moving further with civilians, beyond the government and criminals.

Gun violence is a MENTAL HEALTH issue.

"Before a reverent crowd, Eduardo boasted about his father's success. The homicide rate plunged by some 30 percent during Bolsonaro's presidency, which the Bolsonaros claim is a result of more guns in civilian hands."

Yup, a decrease in the homicide rate is definitely a threat to lives. Thanks, subby.

Brazil is hardly is successful in a real sense..Their disparity of income is atrocious.
Between that and their absurd devotion to Catholicism means they are just out breeding
any chances for things to work normally..There is just no real way to balance out the situation
when they keep piling on more and more people that need the most basic things and the slums just creep
further and further up and out..

here's the thing: we've gone over this exact issue endless times, for years, on this website in these threads, and the ignorance persists. so no, i'm not espousing a shiatty attitude, i'm espousing a completely normal attitude given this website's ~collective inability~ over a long period of time. asking (requiring?) me to be infinitely patient dealing with addressing the same erroneous finger-pointing, over and over, isn't a reasonable ask.

please think of it from the perspective of those of us who have to carry the stigmatization burden.

so. i didn't mean to dump on you so hard for what i'm at wit's end about re: so many people on this site -- my  sincere apologies. thanks for reading tfa and changing your mind.
