The socialist wannabe commies of the Jackass Party knows it can control an unarmed populace.
Imagine the USA accepting the rule of its very own President For Life Castro.
Psst! One minor difference. His first name ain't Fidel.

    Maduro is using common thugs (who he didn't disarm) as enforcers. Wanna bet a Democrat administration would "forget" to disarm folks like Black Lives Matter and the various Muslim militias? Chaos and destruction on the streets, as the elite live comfortably behind their walls, with their private security.

      Luckily, I don't think that there are enough gun owners in America who would give up their guns for this to work. Granted, there would be a lot, but not enough.

        The gun grabbers are counting on the law abiding to be, well, law abiding. However, that may not come out as expected. When New York state made ownership of high capacity magazines illegal, and invited everyone to please turn them in, estimates were that less than 5% complied. Law enforcement across the state preemptively told the governor that they would not participate in house to house confiscation efforts, and the governor pretended that the law was successful.

        What makes confiscation highly unlikely is that in order to force compliance, there would have to be a police state apparatus bigger than the Defense Department, putting the Gestapo to shame. The effort would cost trillions of dollars, and result in more deaths from violent resistance than any number of deaths saved by the gun removal.

        The goal of a socialist state is to make everyone a criminal, to be arrested at will as suits the state. It is a government ruled by fear. I prefer that the government remains fearful of its citizens.

    Guns aren't going to help Venezuelans. They have no correct ideas about politics. Just different bunches of communists.
    Conservative focus on guns in an evasion of their lack of political ideology, which is the REAL issue facing the world today. Itself a consequence of a lack of proper philosophy.

      Perhaps some conservatives can be converted to Objectivism. Although I read in Who Is Ayn Rand? that a lot of people who accepted it were former "liberals". But that book was published a long time ago.

        Yes, some conservatives can definitely be converted but IMO the majority of that movement is beyond saving and needs to be allowed to die off.
        Remember it was conservatives who set themselves against Rand when she published Atlas Shrugged. They knew that the jig was up and their faux-political movement was going to be exposed for what it was. Also, they'd rather socialism win than have to give up Jesus.
        Today's conservatives are in a MUCH WORSE state than they were in Rand's time, in many ways.
        I think the Objectivist movement should focus on Silicon Valley instead. These people get life. They are rational people. They just don't understand politics or integration, but this has never been presented to them.
        Instead they are stuck between democrats and Jesus-democrats (ie conservatives), so it should be unsurprising that Silicon Valley thinks of itself as "progressive."
        My biggest criticism of groups like ARI is that they have not realized this and have not focused their efforts in the right area.
