Bolsonaro rlaja las leys de armas en Brasil, capital mundial de homicidios

January 16, 2019 - January 27, 2019 - El presidente Jair Bolsonaro firmó un decreto que facilita la posesión de armas de fuego, cumpliendo su promesa de campaña de derogar los reglamentos estrictos en uno de los países que lideran en total de homicidios a nivel global

The decree, which does not require congressional approval, scraps the requirement that Brazilians need to prove their “effective need” to own a firearm. Prospective gun owners must still meet other requirements, such as not having a criminal record, taking a psychological exam, a course at a gun club and being at least 25 years old.

Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the world, with a murder rate of over 30 homicides per 100,000 people, compared with around five per 100,000 in the United States, according to Bloomberg News.
