Brazil: Police Warn World Cup Soccer Fans – Do Not Make The Trip

Ah, Brazil! That Utopian society where law-abiding citizens do not need the right to bear arms. It is so peaceful and serene. It is the 5th largest country on the planet, you know. It has abundant natural resources. It is a democratic republic. It is the 7th largest economy in the world. It sounds so perfect. And the best thing about Brazil is, while the police have guns and the military has guns and the criminals have guns and the drug lords have guns, the law-abiding citizens do not have guns. Brazil’s rate of violent death is nearly 29 per 100,000 in population. That is 4.5 times higher than the rate of violent death in America, where, to our shame, law-abiding citizens can shoot back. It really sucks to live in America, I guess, where you can actually go see a major sporting event without fear of being murdered by street thugs over a matter of $80. I wished I lived in Brazil, so the police could warn me not to scream for help while being robbed. Not.
