Socialist Dictator Disarmed the Venezuelan People Now He’s Driving Tanks Over Them


Brutal socialist dictator Hugo Chavez imposed a gun ban on Venezuela in 2012 and disarmed his people. Now his predecessor is driving heavy military vehicles over crowds of democratic protesters who can’t fire back. THIS is what the American Democrat Party wants here in America, folks, make no mistake.

Military forces loyal to dictator Nicolás Maduro drove heavy, armored military vehicles over crowds of people in the streets protesting for democracy. But those people no longer have the capability to defend themselves against the oppressive government.

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” exiled English teacher Javier Vanegas 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.”

As the Washington Examiner notes:

Citizens in Venezuela have been unable to own private firearms since the country enacted a ban in 2012 under previous leader Hugo Chávez. The law only allows the military, police, and specific groups, i.e. security groups, are allowed to purchase firearms from state-controlled manufacturers. Those in violation could face up to 10 years in prison if in possession of a “weapon of war.”

The ban was originally meant to curtail the high murder rate in the country, which saw over 18,000 homicides in 2011. After a low surrender rate, the government invested heavily in seizing weapons from citizens instead.

Meanwhile, the situation in the once rich nation is deteriorating quickly and some fear a shooting war between the forces loyal to illegal strongman Maduro and the legally elected leader of the country, President Guan Guido.

President Guido appeared on TV on Tuesday with members of the military backing him up. This is significant as it it the first time any members of the nation’s armed forces were seen to side with the newly emplaced president.

President Trump is siding firmly with Guido and urging the international community to put pressure on Maduro to vacate his illegal office.
