"Leave the canoles. Bring the gun." More on the futility of firearms confiscation. Venezuelan "Only Ones" are waking up dead, killed for their weapons.

Murdered for their guns, Venezuela's police are now victims of crime.
“There are now fewer deals in black market arms but that has made anyone in uniform a more popular target for criminals than before,” says Eliseo Guzmán, the general commissioner of the Miranda state police force. “They will identify a police officer and take away his life just to take his gun.”

Not that we'll ever know or find out, but it would be interesting to see how many of these "only ones" murders are being done by ordinary citizens seeking self-protection, vice career criminals? Or, if it is all/mostly career criminals doing the po-po murders, how long before the ordinary citizenry is emboldened and joins in the "fun"?
