NGO's With International Gun Ban Agenda Shut Down

The Volokh Conspiracy has an excellent run down on the overwhelming defeat of Brazil's Gun Ban Referendum.

This effort was heavily backed by many N.G.O.'s (Non Governmental Organizations) and by many politicians in Brazil.

The people spoke at the polls and by a 2 to 1 margin voted this step to tyranny down.

From The Volokh Conspiracy

Brazilian voters today will decide whether to prohibit the commercial sale or manufacture of all firearms and ammunition, except for police and military use. Polling stations, which use computer voting, close at 5 p.m. First results are expected around 8 p.m., and final results around midnight. Brazil's President Lula has strongly supported gun prohibition, and pushed it through the legislature, only to have the Brazilian Supreme Court declare the prohibition unconstitutional. Lula has also proposed a United Nations tax on ammunition to pay for "development" (that is, a UN-sponsored transfer of money to corrupt governments such as his).

Go Read it all.

Alphecca also has an excellent article
