Bob Owens reminds us that history does, indeed, repeat itself. And Venezuela is the latest example
The natural right to bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment was previously reflected in the English Bill of Rights (which also saw it as a preexisting right). That right was written down after Kings and Parliaments disarmed their opposition and raised their own militias to quash political foes.
It looks like Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro is trying to play from that despicable centuries-old playbook, arming up his loyalist militia to put down the citizens his nation has disarmed.
