    Yeah, **** the media! Those reporters don´t have to raise a family in Favela Naval or Cidade de Deus, those hypocrites.

    Minutes later we found out those guys had robbed a residential building and had taken hostages there. The police caught those guys while they were trying to escape in a stolen car: there were five robbers total, the cops killed one and arrested two, two managed to run away.

    No innocents were killed or hurt.

    I mean, sure, there are a LOT of corrupt cops here. But the sad part is, when the good ones do their job well, as they did this time, our first instinct is to call them corrupt murderers.

    Poor guys, I do not envy their jobs. And they earn a pittance.

    The crap always get the publicity, the nature of the beast.
    I am sure there are more good cops than bad, but THEY don't get the attention.
    Its the same everywhere.

    Hey WingChun,
    How big of a pastime is hunting in your country? I am just wondering because this law could have an effect on the average farmer or weekend hunter as well.
    Just curious...

    When you live in a country where the cops shoot teenage kids for sport, it's not a good idea to outlaw guns for everyone but the cops.

    The concept behind the right to bear arms in the US is that each individual citizen is responsible for standing up to a corrupt government. Plus, the idea that you have the right to defend yourself and your property and shouldn't be forced to rely on the State to do so.

    It is pretty popular, along with fishing. Not that I do any of those things, of course, as I live in São Paulo and I hate mosquitoes. But in many states those are popular hobbies.

    Yup. In Brazil we simply never had this "militiamen" mentality, and quite frankly today I see it as mostly a romantic concept, but self defense is a serious issue indeed.

    As for relying on the State too much, well, brazilians have done that for far too long. Maybe things are changing now, let´s keep our fingers crossed.

    Good job Brazil! I don't personally own a gun (no real need, currently), but I have no problem with people that do and treat them responsibly.
