The effort to oust dictator Nicolas Maduro from Venezuela continues today after President Juan Guiado launched a new operation yesterday in hopes of a military defection. In response, Maduro’s Cuban thugs ran people over in the streets with heavy armored vehicles and fired tear gas.
While watching the video of innocents being mowed down, MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders admitted that because everyday Venezuelan citizens are not allowed to own firearms, they’re defenseless against the government. The Washington Free Beacon pulled the clip.
“You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country,” Sanders said, watching in horror.
Venezuela banned and confiscated firearms for civilians in 2012 under the guise of crime reduction.
"We will hold accountable those who turn to violence or inflict violence upon the Venezuelan people. There will be a day for accountability for all those who engage in this," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says. https://t.co/xB4XMdrBZk pic.twitter.com/BrX6LcTyEC
