Jair Bolsonaro is the only member of the right of center Partido Social Liberal, or “the Social Liberal Party”, in the Brazilian chamber of deputies. His party got 808.710 in the last election compared to 13,554,166 for the leading Partido dos Trabalhadores, or “the commies”.

Brazil used to have a very healthy culture of private gun ownership. Taurus is based in Brazil, and make some very fine handguns, including a Beretta 92 clone.
