Grilled Meat, Cold Draft Beer, Live Country Music and Rifles

Gun store open has rifles ready for delivery in São Paulo

São Paulo

I received an invitation via WhatsApp to a party at the Mahrte weapons store, in Chácara Klabin (south of São Paulo), this Saturday (14th).

The message also announced grilled meat, cold draft beer and live music, with a country music duo.

At 1 pm, the main attraction: ready-to-delivery rifles. They were the mysterious Fire Eagle, objects of much rumor among trigger people lately.

The promotional launch price is R$ 19,900, divided into ten installments on the card, no matter which of the two models.

But to leave there with one of them there is a condition: you must have a CAC registration, that is, be a collector, sports shooter or hunter.

The sale of rifles to the population was prohibited in Brazil before President Jair Bolsonaro. "Everyone has to buy a rifle, man. Armed people will never be enslaved," he said last August.
