Farewell to Arms – level 2

02-01-2018 07:00

Many criminals in Brazil have illegal weapons, and the police often seize them. Only in Rio this year, the police seized 400 powerful weapons.

There is a disarmament campaign in Brazil because people want to be safe. As part of the campaign, 2,000 illegal weapons were destroyed. A steamroller crushed them.

Difficult words: weapon (a thing that people use to attack other people like a gun), seize (take something), disarmament campaign (a campaign to make people have less weapons).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
