BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro signed a decree on Tuesday to ease restrictions on gun imports and increase the amount of ammunition a person can buy.

The decree had initially been designed to ease restrictions for collectors, marksmen and hunters - allowing, for example, the carrying of loaded guns to shooting clubs - but was expanded to include other provisions.

Previously, imported arms were banned if there was a similar domestic-made product.

“We also broke the monopoly,” Bolsonaro said during a signing ceremony at the presidential palace. “You couldn’t import, and now we have ended this.”

4. Leftists never take Facists seriously until the Jackboots are on their necks.

They always target Liberals and Moderates as their true enemy.

7. Leftists can iron-up too, you know.

 

I hope that progressives in all locations venture out a bit and practice shooting sports, if only for enjoyment and practicing hand-eye coordination. But if jackboots do come marching, a few firearms per left-leaning household wouldn't be a bad idea...
