Smart Brazilians

Brazilians, who live with the second highest gun death rate in the world just - amazingly - voted not to leave the guns to the criminals and corrupt cops.

AP is shocked!

Brazilians soundly rejected a proposal to ban the sale of guns in a national referendum Sunday, striking down the bid to stem one of the world's highest firearm murder rates following a campaign that drew parallels to the U.S. gun control debate.

"They ask the question: 'Do you feel protected and do you think the government is protecting you?' and the answer is a violent no," said political scientist David Fleischer of the University of Brasilia.

The AP moonbats don't explain how disarming the innocent would stop felons from shooting even more of them - they obviously things this guy is a total retard:

"I don't like people walking around armed on the street. But since all the bandits have guns, you need to have a gun at home," said taxi driver Mohammed Osei, who voted against the ban.

Smart guy.
