This group of right-wing Brazil politicians is thinking smartly and taking a page from the National Rifle Association by deciding that the only solution to their nation’s murder problems is allowing people to buy more guns. Of course, what this is really is about is scared wealthy people who don’t really feel much of the effects of this violence. In the favelas, where people do die violent deaths from guns, the response is quite different, as the videos at the link will show. And despite Brazil’s myths about its own racial democracy, the real impact of this will be white people empowered to shoot poor black people anytime they feel uncomfortable. Hard to see what could go wrong!
