Venezuela may be an example of what America could be under a few more years of Democrat control. The oil rich South American country is a socialist nation that first passed strict gun control laws that lead to the confiscation of all civilian guns. Now the socialist nation is actively arming their civilian socialist supporters, but not to anyone who oppose the socialist government. Is this what could happen here in America under the socialist control of Democrats like Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?
The socialist leader of Venezuela announced in a speech to regime loyalists his plan to arm hundreds of thousands of supporters after a years-long campaign to confiscate civilian-owned guns.
“A gun for every militiaman!” Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro said to uniformed militia members outside the presidential palace, Fox News reported on Tuesday. The Bolivarian militias, created by Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chavez, already number in the hundreds of thousands and are being used to supplement the regime’s armed forces. Maduro is boosting the number of armed supporters in hopes of keeping control over the country from what he labels “imperialist aggression.”
The arming of Maduro’s supporters comes five years after Venezuela’s socialist regime outlawed the commercial sale and civilian ownership of firearms.
The arming of Venezuela’s socialist supporters coincides with their government takeover of a General Motors plant. At one time, America relied on Venezuelan oil along with oil from the Middle East. The actions of their dictator are clear signs why the US needs to be oil independent and protect our Second Amendment rights.
