And what better way to make sure there are no “illegal” guns out there than to close ALL Gun shops in the country.
Regarding the sale of arms and munitions, the minister explained that the security measures developed by the government include the closure of all gun stores within Venezuela, saying that articles used to threaten human lives cannot not be sold freely.
“As of March, every last gun shop remaining in Venezuela – and there are less than 80 – should be closed. That is to say, in Venezuela, the perverse chapter of the commercialization of firearms and munitions is over,” El Aissami said.
I am guessing Hugo Chavez is still pissed at the fact that Venezuela is only in fourth place of the most violent countries in the world.
And, of course the United Nations applaud the effort.
