Panama Sees The Light

They've decided to change the law to allow their citizens to carry guns for self defense. They cite the rise in crime as the reason, and the Public Safety Minister Rudolfo Aguilara says, “Everything seems to indicate that there is no direct correlation in the aphorism that says more guns mean more crime,” Which makes fools of anti-gun freaks who maintain it does. They will, however, maintain stringent background checks to make sure known criminals and the insane cannot legally get guns. Ex (Panama) Congresswoman Teresita Arias said bitterly, “The issue of security will not be solved because every citizen has a gun to defend themselves.” A typical gun-hater comment. We'll see, we'll see. I'm personally going to be watching the crime rate in Panama in the next couple of years. Arming honest people has certainly worked everywhere else it was tried.
