The weapons that they just banned, are not suitable for military use.

And no illegal gun has ever been used in a crime. I am not against the regulation but I am not naive enough to think it will make any difference. But feel good points for TrueDope.

Tend to agree.

To be honest, I don't care either way. If I had to choose I'd get rid of them but for the most part I'm a meh.

I don't like the timing of it though. The Shiny Pony does this when he thinks people aren't looking. Just like the sneaky attempt at a power grab.

Something that should never have been allowed.

The government should be ashamed of itself for accepting taxes for the sale of these stupid things.

WTF were they thinking?

Well, the timing of that massacre in NS could be questionable too.. In fact the timing is very appropriate. Decisive action in response to a horrific shooting event. The worst ever in C DA. We are NOT the US of a......where these incidents are almost commonplace.......and may we never ever come close.

No one is being naive........everything is political....one way or another.

While I am not terribly upset with what Trudeau is doing I am not happy with how he is doing it.

This should be run through parliament.

Trudeau and his flunkies are trying to use this time to run everything shady through that they can think of.

Just like when they tried to give themselves that sweeping bill that would allow them to tax and spend without Parliament's approval.

We are in crisis and Trudeau is doing well but he's also waving with one hand and doing some sneaky stuff with the other while we don't see it.

Yes because the gun fanatic or criminal is going to follow the rules..

Wait should I go out and kill 24 people today, a shucks Trudeau made it illegal.. Nevermind.

Give your head a shake.

During the Cold War what stopped Russia? The build up of arms, of course they were not used, but they were a detourant.

Same, if you're carrying a side arm, do you think a robber wants to chance getting killed if he attacks you.

Ban away, now you're more unsafe..

But we now follow Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, Stalin..

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

As I understand it....the weapons banned are for military use ..Why should any civilian carry such a weapon?? Isn't their purpose to kill as many and as fast as possible?? NO civilian needs that kind of weapon. Does the civilian not have enough guns to choose from......if they have to have a gun??

That is a very extreme and paranoid reaction to this decision.

He has repeatedly shown he does not feel that what applies to others applies to him and will do what he wants even if it breaks the law or cuts out our charter of rights and freedoms.

So, yes.

See, that's the problem when people dont check for themselves.

Norinco m305.... also known as the m14. World war 2 vintage semiautomatic in .308 caliber. Used extensively now as a deer rifle.

Ruger mini14 ranch. .223 caliber semi automatic. Used mainly by ranchers and farmers for varmint control.

Keep in mind, maximum legal magazine size in canada is 5 shells.

Now, our present day armed forces has just decided what they are going to use as a cartridge for long range snipers going forward. That cartridge is the 6.5mm creedmoor. The creedmoor has been used for a few years now as a competition round and has gained a lot of popularity among the hunting crowd as a very dependable long range round for big game. So what will happen next? Will the government decide that since the armed forces is now using the 6.5mm creedmoor that any rifle that is chambered for that round now becomes an assault rifle? Sniper rifle? Therefore it needs to be banned?

The semiautomatic action that is being called "assault" was originally designed and sold for and to the general public. It was picked up after the fact by the military.

Uh yeah. Good luck going to war with a semi-automatic rifle as your main weapon, idiot! But let's apply your crappy attitude of assuming you know what one needs. Nobody living in a city needs a personal motor vehicle. You have public transit options and there'd be fewer pedestrian deaths.


In fact, more people were run over and killed just in Toronto last year than the number of people who were killed by someone with a semi-automatic rifle across the entire country. In Canada's WORST year, fewer than 65 people were killed by someone with a semi-automatic rifle. By comparison, 23,000 Canadians die every year from second-hand smoke. Haven't heard any grumblings from the gumbymint about banning cigarettes.


Nor have I heard them discuss the Akwesasne reserve problem. You see OB, the Akwesasne reserve is a pipeline for firearms from the US. As long as it remains a pipeline, the ban will be worse than useless. What's also interesting is what made the list and what didn't. Why are some semi-automatic rifles still permitted? I can no longer purchase a Ruger Mini-14 ranch rifle, but I can still buy a .50 BMG. Yep, that makes sense.

Note it says assault style. NOT assault weapons. The decision is based on what some Moron thinks looks like Rambo would use it. Nothing at all to do with the actual workings.
