Disturbing video footage out of Venezuela reportedly shows Muduro regime troops opening fire on a crowd of protesters as the nation’s crisis intensified on Tuesday.
Another video shared by NBC News showed an armored military vehicle slamming into protesters in Caracas.
The alarming images quickly sparked a debate about gun rights.
In 2012, Venezuela banned private gun ownership. Just 7 years later, the government was shooting its citizens in the streets.
Even MSNBC pointed out that Venezuelans aren’t even allowed to own guns to fight back.
“In Venezuela, gun ownership is not something that's open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power,” a reporter said on the air.
Watch the video below:
When even MSNBC gets it, it must really be obvious.
Vice President Mike Pence sent a personal message to opposition forces currently rising up against the Maduro regime.
"To @jguaido, the National Assembly and all the freedom-loving people of Venezuela who are taking to the streets today in #operacionlibertad—Estamos con ustedes! We are with you! America will stand with you until freedom & democracy are restored. Vayan con dios! #FreeVenezuela"
President Donald Trump also offered his support to the people of Venezuela, not the socialist regime.
Pray for the people of Venezuela.
