The current edition of Gun Facts, the de facto desk reference for firearm policy, has been translated into Latin American Spanish and released on the Gun Facts web site at www.GunFacts.info.
Freedom is not negotiable, said Guy Smith, author of Gun Facts. This includes the human right of self-defense. People in Latin America, encouraged by freedoms in the United States, are resisting gun control. It is time for Gun Facts to help refute the anti-freedom factions in the South as it has in the North.
For more than a decade, Gun Facts has debunked common gun control myths. In 118 pages and nearly 500 detailed citations, the Spanish version of Gun Facts gives advocates and policy researchers a ready resource for refuting distorted data and claims proffered by gun control groups and governments alike.
The last major English language edition of Gun Facts was download into 165 countries and has been read in every Latin American country from Peru to Argentina to Cuba, said Smith. Given how the Brazilian people voted down new gun control, how Argentinean gun rights groups are blocking new restrictions, and how Latin Americans have suffered in the past under despots, Gun Facts provides them the tools they need to grow their freedom.
In response to firearms used by Mexican drug cartels, Gun Facts version 5.1 the source for the Spanish language version has added and reorganized data on international firearms trafficking.
People in Latin America have told me that Gun Facts is widely read because the same falsehoods told by the gun control industry in the United States are being spread in the southern hemisphere, said Smith. The Spanish language version of Gun Facts makes the correct information available to a much larger audience, and makes them appropriately skeptical of those who would take away their rights.
Gun Facts chapters are organized around gun control topics like assault weapons, concealed carry, crime and microstamping. In each chapter, common gun control myths are listed and for each myth multiple facts debunking the myth are cited. Facts carry detailed citations from reputable sources, allowing Gun Facts readers to authoritatively counter sound bites echoed by politicians and anti-freedom activists.
Yo quiero las armas.
Armas de Fuego bump.
Great, we need the citizens of Mexico armed to resist, when the cartel attempts violence on the street, citizens can return fire.
Right now, the average citizen can only stand by and watch.
Ayyyy! “Gun control? We ain’t got no gun control! We don’t need no gun control! I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ gun control!”
