Here. The core, under the storm of reactions at the end of the Marchionne era, is this: is the market unchangeable and uncontrollable as is convenient for a few, or can it be governed as it would suit many? Good question, in spite of the usual story about the death of ideologies. The rest – from hagiography to insults – is background noise.
There is great expectation in the country for the self-defense reform process to start (this week), and as with everything (immigration, gardening, economy, crochet work, aerospace science, vegan cuisine, sun creams, dop products, organic honey), the line is dictated by the Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini. These are the advantages of those who never work: they can have many hobbies. Salvini’s thought is well known: too much trouble, trials, expenses for lawyers, for those who shoot someone who is stealing an ornament in the living room. The lobby of arms manufacturers and sellers is naturally favorable: one million and 398.920 licenses for firearms seem few for a country of sixty million inhabitants, and Italy remains in an inferior position compared to Texas, where they are also armed. embryos, or peaceful places like Libya. Here are some common sense rules that the reform should incorporate.
Shoot the thieves in the house. Of course you can shoot the thieves in the house. A somewhat ambiguous rule because it is not clear at whose home. “But at the thieves’ house!”, Salvini immediately clarifies. In practice, the good Italian citizen with a Romanian neighbor, or a foreigner in general, can knock, wait for someone to open and then chill him on the balcony. This is an extended criterion of self-defense, interpreted in a less restrictive key. If it turns out that the dead man was not a thief but a very honest person, the accused will not be entitled to a refund of the bullet, which he will have to pay with his own money. “Too punitive rule – Salvini says – we will change it”.
Guns bonus. Following the example of the culture bonus, money will be given to young people at the age of eighteen to buy firearms. There are those who are skeptical, because it is not easy to put in place checks and verifications. “And what if we discover that with that money they buy a book? – says Savini – Norma to be reviewed ”.
Widespread shooting range. The increase in the possession of weapons by honest citizens who want to defend themselves from crime by shooting children who recover the ball that has ended up in the courtyard requires a minimum of ballistic preparation. But setting up neighborhood polygons (or blocks of flats for more populous areas) could be expensive. The reform designed by Salvini would like to overturn the concept and fight bureaucracy. Enough registration, applications on stamp paper, verification of documents. To train your aim, just wander around a Roma camp, or some center for foreign asylum seekers.
Economic recovery. The benefits of a reform that liberalizes the use of weapons, as Salvini and those who manufacture them would like, are also economic. Apart from the surge in interventions in private health care (it is estimated that the number of those who shoot themselves in the foot cleaning the Colt will increase by 334 percent), excellent performance is expected for the funeral home, florists and obituaries sector. The reform will then have a flywheel effect: knowing that they are waiting for him armed, even the chicken thief will buy a weapon, engaging a virtuous circle for which in ten years one will have to go around with wallet, telephone, car keys, house keys. , and nine-gauge Glock. The bag returns.
Family first. Salvini’s passion for family values is well known, in fact he had two or three families, always placing wives and companions in good jobs thanks to politics.
