Ah, the Socialist dream state of Venezuela practicing those wonderful policies. Now, a renewed effort to disarm what little defense the public has left so that the gangs and corrupt authorities are the only ones with weapons.

Coming soon to the USA

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




Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the event marked the renewal of efforts to disarm Venezuelans, through a combination of seizures and a voluntary program to swap guns for electrical goods.

Venezuela has the world's second highest murder rate and the street gangs that plague its poor neighborhoods have become increasingly heavily armed in recent years, at a time when a deep recession has reduced resources available to police.

Gangs often get weapons from the police, either by stealing them or buying them from corrupt officers, experts say.

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.

Experts say that much of the ammunition used in crimes in Venezuela is made at the country's government munitions factory and sold on by corrupt police.

It isn;t socialism to use gangs as de facto enforcement, excuse for more security in a police state. Every nations does it.

Once the populace is disarmed, the criminals and the state rule.

One hand feeds the other.

With Few Options, Venezuela Resorts to Slavery to Feed Its People



Recently, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro issued an executive order asserting that all workers, public and private, can be forced to work in farm fields for up to 60 days at a time, or “if circumstances merit,” even longer. The order is designed to address the problems recently afflicting Venezuelan agriculture, which has resulted in massive food shortages for individuals across Venezuela.


Still, some die hard socialists persist.

We also have to remember the American leftest who "praised Chavez's Socialism" victories. (They forgot that Socialism only works until you run out of other people's money). From "Salon" with my comments



Hugo Chavez’s economic miracle (Comments: LOL, it didn't take long to crumble did it)
www.salon.com...



When a country goes socialist and it craters, it is laughed off as a harmless and forgettable cautionary tale about the perils of command economics. When, by contrast, a country goes socialist and its economy does what Venezuela’s did, it is not perceived to be a laughing matter – and it is not so easy to write off or to ignore. It suddenly looks like a threat to the corporate capitalism, especially when said country has valuable oil resources that global powerhouses like the United States rely on.

For example, the United States has adamantly rejected the concept of nationalization and instead pursued a bailout/subsidy strategy when it comes to rapacious banks and oil companies – and those firms have often gone on to wreak economic havoc. Are there any lessons to be learned from Venezuela’s decision to avoid that subsidization route and instead pursue full-on nationalization?

Likewise, in a United States whose poverty rate is skyrocketing, are there any lessons to be learned from Venezuela’s policies that so rapidly reduced poverty?

And in a United States that has become more unequal than many Latin American nations, are there any constructive lessons to be learned from Chavez’s grand experiment with more aggressive redistribution?



Yeah, the lessons are obvious.. nationalization of industry FAILS!

You can't reduce "Poverty" if you constantly and deliberately "IMPORT MORE AND MORE AND MOVE POVERTY" for political gains and identity politics.

It is hopeless now, it really is a lost cause. Half of America is truly blind, dumb, or hold true to their false beliefs like a religious cult.

Hillary would like to. There's just too many out there now.

Have you heard the off-hand comments from the 'enforcement community' on such an idea. It goes something like, "If you want us to stack and penetrate ... you go with us and you go in first."

Their little test ... you remember the one in Connecticut ... that was their litmus test ... and it failed. TPTB know it'll come to blood and they know there'll be an ugly purge after, which is why they're buying evacuation properties in other countries far-far from the continent of America.

Ahhhhahahahahaha!!

Registration "Always" leads to confiscation. How many times do we have to see it through history to understand that... LOL

Thank you for this. A positive story, although the outcome
is necessarily painful or worse for many innocent people.

Watch carefully American Progressive... this is your agenda
a couple of clicks further down the Yangtze. Now remember.

Governments like the one you're striving for-- want YOU to
go right after the intellectuals and dissidents: always.

Tell me the difference between that and what the US has. Through PACS, the government is 'owned' by Mega corp, the banks and the Military.

I made a thread about the lessons we should be learning from Venezuela's socialist experiment here Venezuela - A Real Time History Lesson

I'll be adding your link to the article about the on going gun confiscation program in my thread. Good information to keep up on the situation down there, thanks.

The thing about mass gun confiscation I never quite got is you can't really just take a gun from someone unless you have more guns- otherwise you're threatening to beat up someone who has a gun.

Why didn't the people simply stand together and say "no, you can't have them" ?

Short and blunt answer. They are dumb-bleeps

Because you can't easily get rid of years of upbringing that learns you to love, fear and respect authority.

Well, I guess that's it. I know it's working on the US population- I've learned to fear the authorities because they can (and have) punish me for doing nothing wrong- and they make examples seemingly daily of how they are above the law they claim to enforce.

bugger.
