- no nor do I support one who admires authoritarian governments. I do think that democracy in ancient Greece has still some things to teach us.
Keep in mind having strict gun regulations do not make a government authoritarian by default.1w
- Countries with a lot more stricter gun control laws than Brazil are China, India, Iran, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, North Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam. There are countries which has similar restrictions like Brazil, among other Chile and Denmark.
In the first group we have countries with the lowest death by gun related violence.
Brazil's issue ain't the law, it's the illegal import of over a million weapons a year.4d
- How do you think Brazil should stop these illegal imports? Since you used North Korea and China as examples, maybe Brazil should be like North Korea or China?4d
- I'm starting to think that he admires countries like Cuba and Venezuela...there you find heavy state regulations not only for guns but also for everything in day to day life...some people have a leaning towards dictatorships.4d
- I think you are correct. I find people who are to left or to right are blind. With that said, I am an independent voter but I would say I am a Conservative Democrat. For instance, Conor Lamb shares a lot of my views and I might would vote for him if he ran for president.4d
- China, North Korea and also Iran was listed for they have more strict gun regulation laws than Brazil which makes Brazil to not have the strictest gun regulation laws at all, it's actually in the group of medium gun control laws, no matter what you think.
What Brazil should do to take on the illegal weapon import? This ain't a simple as switching a switch thing as there are many problems among others corruption (within the military and border control), so one of the big issues which has to be solved is corruption (not just on low level but also in the political top), improve the border control. A weapons amnesty with some kind of reward for those who hand in their illegal weapons. A trustworthy police force would be needed who could reclaim control of crime lords ruled areas. Of course you will need the possibility for people to live on honest work.
There are two less good ways which I wouldn't really recommend neither of them:
- Dictatorship of some sort
- Let people kill off each other.
I'll let the Brazilian choose how they want to deal with it, I bet my money on the last one...4d
