“Americans should pause and reflect on how fortunate they are to have a Second Amendment that allows them to defend themselves from all forms of nefarious actors — state and non-state.
“Most of the world is not so lucky.”
A Chilean court has convicted and sentenced John Cobin, an American who previously renounced his American citizenship, to 11 years in prison for firing a gun in 2019 during a protest that turned violent.
Starting in October of last year, Chile was host to mass protests over public transportation fare increases and overall complaints about living standards. Although the protests started out peacefully, the radical Left took advantage of the unrest by infiltrating the protests and turning them into full-fledged riots.
Buildings, churches, and neighborhoods were set ablaze during this frenzy, while many businesses —big and small — were looted. The Chilean state eventually brought order to the country, although its response was rather delayed according to several right-wing, Chilean commentators.
