One of the agents that came from a southern province to participate in the CQB class told me something pretty disturbing.
A local Union leader approaching him about what he could do with this card he had been given. The card was a carry permit, simply impossible to get for legal gun owners.
This person said it had been simply given to him and that most local union bosses, community social movement leaders and road blocker bosses were getting it. 3.000 permits have been distributed among these guys, most of them supposedly unemployed and needing a social plan to live and in many cases with an extensive criminal back ground.
The woman (the one on the left) in this picture standing next to president Kirchner is Miliagros “Mili” Salas, ex drug addict and prostitute. She used to live on the streets and decided to get involved in politics after spending 8 months in prison.
She now gets over 10 million dollars per year directly from the Ks, moves around with at least 6 SUVs all around her full of armed thugs and beats up and intimidates those that don’t comply with the Ks.
She has more power in her province, Jujuy, than the governor, and freely walks into the presidential house in Buenos Aires to insult secretaries or Ministers if she feels like it.
Last year she registered 100 firearms for her crash force. When the local authorities refused to do so because of the dark past of those to whom the firearms would be issued, orders came directly from Buenos Aires to comply.
Her counterpart in Buenos Aires, Luis Delia, has taken some of his people to receive combat training in Chavez’s Venezuela.
Now, this is all confirmed information. I checked on line and found several articles and media websites, and there’s been criminal charges presented by the political leaders of the opposition. Of course, these cases will be shelved and everything will go on as usual.
There’s also reports of AK rifles arriving from Venezuela to Ezeiza international airport and carried away by ambulances.
Information about military officers, police sheriffs, their location and families, even information about legal firearm owners has been given to these groups in case they need to take action against them.
Why is all this happening? The K’s are openly against the military and a large sector of the police. The police they are slowly trying to change with their own people but they’ve always treated the military as enemies so they aren’t counting on them. That’s why the Ks are creating their parallel “social” army.
Oh, yes. This does freak me out as its clear that no good can come from this, an unofficial army across the country that are above the law, ready to strike anyone opposing.
Now, trying to learn from this and drawing parallelisms:
1) You guys don’t have our pitiful 3rd world society but its not crazy to imagine that some … “underprivileged ” groups, organized in social welfare in local neighborhoods, fierce supporters of the nanny state that keeps them financed may end up doing something similar.
2) Do all you can to remain below radar. Firearms should be purchased without paper trail if possible. Don’t become a fat target to hit if such a group ever gets hold of ATF lists. “We promise we wont tell anyone about your guns” isn’t good enough. The list of firearm owners and address do exist. Make sure you’re not in it or that you’re at least not in that address.
3) Talk to people “in the know” to know about these things happening.
4) Get involved politically so that these things never happen in your country!
