BRAZILIANS VOTE DOWN THE GUN BAN. Quite decisively. Although they still have some nasty restrictions on gun purchasing, this is a knockout defeat for the global "only government should have guns" movement.
The articles mostly don't say it, but Brazilians are not only well aware that their government won't protect them. They also live under corrupt, vicious police gangs who are often more feared than the freelance criminal gangs.
