The law only allows the police to catch and bring to court criminals. The law in and of itself doesn't stop any one from doing anything. Gun laws are simple regulation of guns. The ideal being to reduce the amount of guns used in violent crime. If someone can't abide the simple regulations they shouldn't be in possession of a gun. Why is that so difficult for you? I can own a car without becoming a criminal. I can get a mortgage, buy a house, pay off the mortgage in a timely manner all without resorting to becoming a criminal doing it. Why is it that having to register your gun is so damn difficult for you, you have to make this much fuss about it? It's nothing compared to buying a house. Unless you want to give that gun to someone else who can't have a gun legally.
I keep telling people that, but they seem incapable of hearing.......Sorry for the purple yelling, but this gets incredibly frustrating.
Your local gang-banger can not have his home "inspected" unless the police can convince a judge to issue a warrant based on solid evidence that there is evidence pertaining to a specific crime therein.....fishing expeditions are most assuredly NOT allowed as they are banned under the Charter as unreasonable search.
But my home can be "inspected", and if I refuse, the refusal itself is reason for the judge to issue a warrant to search, with there being absolutely no evidence of any crime committed whatsoever.
Your local gang-banger, while his home is being searched (on a warrant issued only with reason of evidence pertaining to a particular crime) can NOT be expected to answer any questions whatsoever, can NOT be coerced into helping the officers, can NOT be forced to give evidence against himself, as that is a violation of his Charter rights.......
But while my home is inspected, I am ordered to answer all questions and offer all aid to the inspectors, on criminal penalty for refusal.
Gun owners are LESS than second class citizens, they are treated like no citizen at all.....
This all against a group that statistically has a murder rate about one half of that among the general population.....in other words, all this is aimed at a group that is the least likely to commit heinous crimes.......that is licensed gun owners. (despite being overwhelmingly of the gender that most commits murder)
Do you have ANY idea how insulting that is??? Then to have the brain dead ****heads of the NDP promise to "compromise" with a bill to relieve the concerns of gun owners.....and then they introduce a bill that leaves us MORE at the mercy of anti-gun bureaucrats, a bill that does absolutely nothing to reassure us, except to more deeply invade the privacy of those that served as members of the armed forces......
This is an attempt to destroy a culture that our politicians find politically incorrect and faintly threatening.
