Bolsonarist Federal Deputy Points A Gun at People in So Paulo

Bolsonarist federal deputy Carla Zambelli (PL-SP) pulled out a gun and pointed it at people this Saturday (29), in São Paulo.

The parliamentarian's attitude caused a commotion at the intersection of Joaquim Eugênio de Lima and Lorena avenues, in the central area of the capital. On her social media channels, she said she had been assaulted. A video shows a young man running towards a cafe while Zambelli and some men appear in pursuit. One of them yells "on the floor, scumbag".

The deputy enters the cafe pointing the gun at the boy. The man asks "you want to kill me for what?".

Zambelli says she shot into the air and chased a man after being harassed and assaulted. The deputy claims to have the license for possession of a federal weapon for personal and property defense. She says she was having lunch with her 14-year-old son when a group of people recognized her.
