It’s been a real battle

…in the media, about this plebiscit that will happen on October 23rd
here in Brazil, asking the population if we’re in favour or against
disarmament (does that word exist in english?? You know, it’s when you
take the guns away from people and outlaw them – only the police and
the private bodyguards can have them).

I was almost convinced in voting pro disarmament, but now I’m having
second thoughts…I mean…this is hard, you know. The situation of the
police here in Brazil is SO disadvantegous…poor guys! Plus, whoever
has guns will continue having them, so what’s the point of outlawing
something that will continue the way it is?? And the drug dealers,
thieves, kidnappers, rapists, etc etc will obviously not give away
their guns And the blackmarket of guns will continue as it is…

Oh and not to mention that the law as it already is says that to have a
gun you’re supposed to be over 25, master the use of guns, and also
have a clean criminal record. Yeah right, like these pre-requisites are
checked everytime somebody gets a gun…

The only point where disarmament would be good would be to prevent
accidents with kids that find their parents’ guns, and other types of
firearms accidents of the sort. But then again, if the ones who already
own a gun are allowed to continue having them, well…what’s the
point!!! Geeshhhh!!!!!!

It’s very easy for politicians to be in favor of disarmament, because
they have bullet-proof cars, security guards and bodyguards all over
the place…what about us? We have houses that are extremely easy to
break into, and if we’re not allowed to have guns, we’ll
have…knives??? LOL Come on…! I don’t have any gun, but if somebody
who has one would come to my rescue in case of need, I’d be deeply
thankful to them!!! Because the police takes AGES to arrive when you
call them for anything…

This is sad. I really wanted to vote against guns cause they’re the
utmost symbol of barbarism. But I just can’t be hypocritical in my vote.
