Weapons and munitions trafficking continues. As of 2021, there were at least 238,000 registered firearms with the government. The total number os firearms is about twice that amount. Democracy can’t stop the contraband of drugs, arms, laundered money that ends up in real estate, and other agricultural goods (not to forget charcoal and liquors). The Dominican people are getting exactly what they asked for from the last five elections!
