So much for banning weapon bearing

Last week, Defense Minister García Carneiro issued a supension on all permits for bearing weapons, until march 14th. He said that, besides containing violence from opposition demonstrators (yeah, right), it would reduce crime rates throughout the country. Well, sunday night my cousin, his wife and two little kids were assaulted 100 meters from my home by three guys bearing 9mm pistols. They took away their Jeep Cherokee and the kids' bicycle.

So much for this pretty revolution.
