In Venezuela. Somebody needs to kill that bastard Hugo Chavez. He is shutting down dissident radio stations. No, wait! Just three years ago Venezuela enacted strict gun-control laws. Never mind. The citizens have been disarmed. Look what happened three years ago:
July 2, 2006 headline: “Venezuela Announces Gun Control Plan to Lower Crime” [wink wink]
“Caracas, Venezuela, July 2, 2006–The Venezuelan Ministry of Justice announced the creation of a new firearms control plan on Wednesday, in an attempt to decrease excessive violence in Venezuela. The plan will be presented to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in two weeks, and could begin to be implemented by the end of July.”
“The National Weapons Control Plan was announced by the Minister of Justice and Interior, Jesse Chacon, who proclaimed it to be an important piece of the larger security policies that the Ministry of Interior and Justice has been developing.”
That article went on to report the following: [PLEASE NOTE, I did NOT make this shit up! I know, I know, it sounds like something that I would create.]
“The five projects that we are going to present in order to begin the execution [of the plan] consist in establishing a permanent monitoring mechanism regarding the entrance of weaponry to Venezuela and find the way to carry out the following: a consciousness-raising campaign for the population, so that they turn in their weapons voluntarily; the promotion of updated legislation that establishes dispositions on the control of firearms; promote the participation of the community in the disarmament programs; and coordinate different actions with key players focused on this issue,” announced Chacon.
[As predictably as April showers bring May flowers, as soon as the populace was disarmed, the Dictator “President” starts taking away the right to free speech.]
CARACAS, Aug 1 (Reuters) – “More than a dozen of 34 radio stations ordered shut by the Venezuelan government went off the air on Saturday, part of President Hugo Chavez’s drive to extend his socialist revolution to the media.”
p.s. Don’t think it can’t happen here. Millions of Americans drool at the thought of disarming America and shutting down dissident conservative voices. JOIN THE NRA. I swear to God if they try to shut down American radios they better put my name on the list of domestic terrorists. God gave us rights. If we are willing to fight for them against tyrannical governments.
Pat Robertson called for the assassination of Chavez years ago. He was right, just a little early.
