Despite all the transparently false “We’re not anti-gun” narratives, the American Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex has an ultimate goal of outlawing private gun ownership. They want to restrict firearms ownership to police and the military. What could possibly go wrong?
Maduro ramped up the (confiscation) program in 2014, expending more than $47 million to enforce the ban. His tactics included “grandiose displays of public weapons demolitions in the town square,” according to Fox News.
Citizens who disobey the ban face 20 years in prison.
“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, a Venezuelan teacher exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”
He added, “Venezuelans evolved to always hope that our government would be non-tyrannical, non-violator of human rights, and would always have a good enough control of criminality.”

In 1989, Beijing tanks crushed the people. In 2019, Venezuelan armored vehicles hit the people. Today, 30 years later, the dictator’s means are still bloody and barbaric #venezuela pic.twitter.com/KnRRU4ofQa
