Bolsonaro alivia lei das armas no Brasil, líder mundial nos homicídios
January 16, 2019 - January 27, 2019 -
O Presidente Jair Bolsonaro assinou um decreto a tornar mais fácil
a posse de armas de fogo pelos brasileiros, cumprindo uma promessa
de campanha de facilitar a lei no país com mais homicídios do mundo.
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.
