California Gun Sales – Scan Fingerprint For Food

California Gun Sales – Scan Fingerprint For Food

As Calif. gun sales go up, number of gun-casualties goes down

Gun sales in California are booming. More than 600,000 were sold in 2011. However by last year, sales had jumped to 817,000. That’s an increase of 36 percent. But we noticed the number of people wounded by gunfire is dropping.

Business has been hectic for Aristotle Rogel, who works at a gun store in Burbank, California. Walk-in business is up 20 percent this month. Many customers are buying more than one gun.

Asked if his customers are buying now because they are afraid they won’t be able to buy later if there are new gun laws, Rogel answered: “Well, absolutely. Stock up and see hopefully nothing happens.”
Scan Fingerprint For Food

Venezuela has announced plans to introduce fingerprint scanners at supermarkets in a bid to stop food smugglers blamed for the crippling shortages gripping the country.

Price controls in Venezuela keep food and other basic goods up to 10 times cheaper than in neighbouring countries.

President Nicolas Maduro blames the shortages on smugglers who buy cheap products and sell them for large profits across the border, particularly in Colombia.

Under the new system, the scanners would be used to prevent people from making repeat trips to the supermarket and buying abnormally large amounts of food.

“The order has been given to the superintendency of prices to establish a biometric system in all supermarkets and commercial and distribution chain networks of the republic,” Mr Maduro said.
