The Horror! The Horror!

From Nov. 12, 2015 Time:

Brazil Seeks to Copy U.S. Gun Culture

Lawmakers want to make it easier for Brazilians to get weapons

Congressmen in Brazil, one of the most violent countries in the world, are proposing to dramatically loosen restrictions on personal gun ownership, bringing the country much closer to the American right to bear arms.

The politicians say the measures are necessary to allow embattled citizens the right to defend themselves from criminals armed with illegal weapons. But opponents say the move will only increase the country’s toll of nearly 60,000 murders in 2014.

Tapeworms in brain are common in Latin America. That may explain politics there. Is this new rationality due to ivermectin?
