Venezuela crushes 2,000 guns in public, plans registry of bullets.


Venezuelan police crushed and chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square on Wednesday, as the new interior minister relaunched a long-stalled gun control campaign in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries.

Venezuela has also bought laser technology to mark ammunition, Reverol said, in an attempt to keep a registry of the bullets given out to the South American nation’s many state and municipal police forces.

Given that ammo imports are tightly controlled by the Government and that most of the ammunition that you can find is manufactured by the military, I expect that they will find troubles with the laser micro-stamping.  You see, Gov ammo is sold in the black market not only to criminals but to guerrilla groups and drug cartels.

By the way, reloading equipment and supplies are strictly verbotten. My crappy Lee single stage press can get you (IIRC) about 8 years in prison and that is not counting primers, bullets, cases and powder. I think I would end up serving something like 25-30 years if all I have for rolling my own ‘boolits’ is added up.

But I want to direct your attention to these “experts” on guns and disarmament:

Notice that the magazine is still in the gun. JMB is laughing from Heaven.

And I don’t need to say anything. 

And they wonder why Gun Control is failing in Venezuela.

  1. One could hope the last one actually pulls the trigger…

  2. “…chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square…”

    So I guess the contraband rifles are cycled to the Colectivos? It’s strange how things work in desperate authoritarian states.

  3. Venezuela is the current hell-hole of communism full frontal failure.

    Yet, Americans-in-name-only support Bernie Sanders, a socialist with aspirations of being a communist, or the she-devil Hitlery, who is only a step away ideologically.

    Buy firearms, ammo, spare parts, reloading materials, trade with friends, and otherwise prepare. Liberty will live or die with this next election due to the implications with the SCOTUS (i.e. will they read the plain text of the Constitution or will they manufacture new rights while they destroy those listed there).
