Brazilians are Apparently Warming to Gun Rights

Strange things happen when promises of gun control equating to increased safety fail to materialize.  Such is the situation today in the world’s murder capital of Brazil: Desperate Brazilians are wondering whether they’d be better off armed, given that around 60,000 of their compatriots are killed each year.  Polls show support for gun ownership gaining […]

As if a free and reasoning people require a state task force to inform them that they have a natural, individual right to actively participate in their own defense rather than simply flee in fear, a Florida task force recently released a 44-page report confirming just that.
