Venezuela is providing a chilling lesson in how wrongheaded is the leftist dismissal of the Second Amendment as a bulwark against tyranny. They laugh at the very idea that an armed citizenry would be any challenge to a government that falls into the hands of despots. (I won’t even go into the mental gymnastics it takes to denounce the police as racist murderers while insisting that government agents should be the only Americans allowed to have guns.)
Well, Venezuela should be their idea of paradise, since it has both socialism and strict anti-gun laws for the populace. Can you guess how that’s working out right now?
Here’s more on what the miracle of socialism has wrought on the people of Venezuela, and the subhead inspired our “Quote of the Day,” from Prof. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.
Subhead: “People getting starry eyed about socialism should look to Venezuela for some important warning signs.”
Reynolds’ response: “If you’re still getting starry eyed about socialism at this point, you should be looking to your brain scan for warning signs.”
