“The former mayor of Bogota took apart a rifle at a rally urging Colombians to vote ‘yes’ in the weekend referendum on a peace deal with the FARC rebels,” foxlatino.com reports. “Antennas Mockus (above), the leader of a movement in favor of the treaty, urged ‘ordinary Colombians’ to hand over any guns they have in their possession. ‘Seventy-five percent of violent deaths are caused by firearms,’ the one-time presidential candidate said.”
Because a piece of paper will protect “ordinary Columbians” from soon-to-be-former FARC rebels, their own government, crazies, criminals and non-FARC terrorists. Or not.
FYI, wikipedia.org tells us that “Aurelijus Rūtenis Antanas Mockus Šivickas is a Colombian mathematician, philosopher, and politician. He has a master’s degree in philosophy from the Colombian University, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and a Honoris Causa PhD from L’université de Paris.”
