    [FONT=&quot]Banning guns is not the solution[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]In Brazil, law-abiding citizens are effectively banned from owning guns. Only those few who can prove their lives are threatened can receive gun permits. Penalties for carrying a gun without a permit include prison terms up to four years. But Brazil also tops the global list for gun murders. According to a United Nations study in 2011, nearly 35,000 people were murdered by firearms in 2008. That’s a homicide-by-firearm rate of 18 per 100,000 inhabitants - more than five times higher than the U.S. rate. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Do you want the U.S. to be more like Brazil? It’s impossible to stop determined criminals from illegally obtaining guns, and Brazil’s gun laws only serve to put unarmed, defenseless citizens at grave risk. If you look carefully, you will find both Senator Feinstein and Governor Cuomo have hidden agendas for banning guns. They will not need to worry because they have around-the-clock personal security. Do you? [/FONT]
