You interjected the guns angle. As usual, there needs to be balance to your pro-communist, pro-socialism, pro-down with western nations (unless they are part of the “new world order”) propaganda.
The current situation is Singapore is that of a very nice nation/place to live. Situations can and do change…just like they have changed in Venezuela. Not everyone in Singapore (or any other nation for that matter) has the status of rich retired ex-pat who can just scurry back to their home country. Those left behind will lament the day that they allowed their right and ability to defend themselves and their family from an oppressive government to be taken away…just as the person quoted in that article says.
