The country chose the wrong path when it perceived the serious homicidal violence framework in which it was immersed, seeking solutions that were far from the real cause of the problem and that, only, intended to transfer the responsibility for it to society. The results were catastrophic and, today, the Brazilian killer framework is the worst since it began to be measured almost 35 years ago.
The data are available on the 2014 Edition Preview “Map of violence”, the country’s most trusted and who has official recognition by the Ministry of Justice, for it is based on the Mortality information System (SIM), from the Ministry of Health. According to that, the country of the Soccer World Cup and the next Olympic Games has reached, in 2012, the most recent year with recorded data, its absolute annual homicides record: 56,337 victims, with the highest historical rate since the beginning of the registry (in 1980), amazing 29 murders per 100 K inhabitants……
…..Obviously, it was to no avail. The murders, as seen, have not been reduced, but, on the contrary, they’ve reached their highest number, and what was said to be a magic solution became an unquestioned and grandiose failure. Establishing the prohibition of the possession, as well as carry-on, as a general rule, the Disarmament Statute began to take effect in 2004, the year in which 48,374 homicides were recorded in Brazil . Four years later, with the near extinction of the legal arms trade practice, the numbers came to 50,113 (2008) and since then, there have been on a upward climb until the record of 56,337, registered in 2012.

Michael Bane recently commented in his podcast that the NRA wanted to have Hispanics more visible within the organization, attract more and some were wondering how to go about that. The answer is simple : For us Gun Control and Gun Free Zones are not a possibility for a sad reality we lived in and we have relatives that are living and dying in it. It is real, bloody and ugly with the bodies of those who died by criminal violence so abundant that the morgues look like disorganized lost & found departments with bodies strewn everywhere.
We are the survivors of a genocide brought to you by the people who believe in magic Unicorns, dogmatic beliefs about peace and an unquenched thirst for power.
