Globovision.com – 87 armas de fuego y 64 mil municiones han encontrado en La Planta.
Quick translation from the original article:
At The Plant (Prison, the government) has found so far 87 guns, 64,000 rounds of ammunition, 18 grenades, 4 tear gas (grenades), stun bombs and 2 mortars.
Among the guns recovered were 9 FAL rifles, 1 AK-47, 1 sub-machine gun and one K-15
The Plant Prison in Caracas was shut down just last month after days of heavy rioting. Convicts were laying down so much fire that Venezuelan Armed Forces were sent to put down the rebellion. The inmates were moved to other prisons and a full scale search for more guns, ammo and explosives are underway.
This is a video captured with a cell phone of the inmates having some sort of shindig with the guns at their disposal before the intervention.
And yes, that is full auto fire which is quite illegal in Venezuela. Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams are still inside the prison detonating materiel deemed to unsafe to handle.
Remember, this is the country whose Gun Laws are following the recommendations of IANSA and would make Sarah Brady’s chest swell with emotion. And they also have one of the highest murder rate in the world and more murders than the USA with one tenth of the population.
Yep, clearly Gun Control works.
