    Brazil in 'civil war,' says head of Congress' pro-gun faction

    Brazil is caught in a "civil war" of crime and violence, the head of Congress' pro-gun faction says, warning that ordinary Brazilians need to be armed and ready to fight back."Isn't this war?" asks the 53-year-old during an interview with AFP, referring to the 57,000 homicides every year in a country whose population is roughly 209 million.

    "We are in a civil war. We have to fight back against this violence, and that unfortunately doesn't mean sending flowers" to criminals, said Augusto, a member of Brazil's center-right Liberal Party who says he owns a revolver and a pistol.

    For the captain, there is no doubt -- more weapons in the hands of "good people," tougher sentences for criminals and more muscular police operations will bring down the death toll in one of the most violent countries in the world.

    I carry a firearm because a cop is too heavy and takes too many breaks.
