Venezuelan President Announces $47 Million for Civilian Disarmament Centers

NRA Feed - Thu, 09/25/2014 - 19:00
It’s what happens to gun owners and freedom when a lawless, leftwing, socialist president who doesn’t like America, who uses the power of his office to intimidate his political opponents, and who will do nearly anything to preserve his power gets elected.  On Sunday, Nicholas Maduro, the president of Venezuela, announced that he will spend $47 million for 60 civilian disarmament centers, where people can turn in their privately owned guns.  Venezuela banned the commercial sale of guns in 2012, and Maduro--continuing the fundamental transformation of the country begun by his predecessor, Hugo Chavez--now says “We are building peace from within, and for that, you need disarmament.”
