Wrong, as always. In the murders, the shooter used a semi-automatic H&K M91, a 7.62 x 51 NATO battle rifle. It was smuggled in from the USA, along with 20 round magazines, also prohibited, and smuggled.


The shooter did NOT have a Firearms License.



That situation lends credence to our argument, not yours.


There was a rifle stolen from an uncle (I believe) of one of his terrorized henchmen by those guys, but it was a registered (as they were then) bolt action hunting rifle which was not used in the murders.


I also believe he had a Beretta 9mm pistol, smuggled as well, but it was not used either. Not sure of either of those points, just the use and origins of the H&K 91.



Only the H&K was used to kill.


EDIT: I was unsure, so looked it up. It appears the H&K was NOT smuggled, but imported legally, and NOT turned in when the weapon was banned in 1995. Likewise the 20 round magazine. Which supports our cause even more, as I have pointed out numerous times that attempts to seize legally-purchased arms only drives large numbers of them underground, and they eventually wind up in the hands of criminals.

Four-in-five Canadians support complete ban on civilian possession of assault style weapons

http://angusreid.org/assault-weapons-ban/

The assault weapon ban is low hanging fruit. It is supported by everyone but the nutcases.

Its the municipal handgun ban that will be take some political doing.

Assault weapons have not been legal for decades. The last round of banned Private property were not assault weapons idiot. They were just hunting and target rifles that looked scary to retards.

You fukcing moron! That is an outdated poll. The public is pissed at the liberals. Gun violence is up and they are spending hundreds of million going after the guns that have never been a problem.

I'm surprized. These guys were actually quite reasonable in covering this. Of course, they had to point out the handful of alt-right dimwits that showed up, but 5 or 6 in a crowd of (as they estimate) 2000 - 3000 is hardly anything to fear.


They were actually much more on point than the CBC, who said 800 marched (debunked below) and refused to cover it on their TV news..........although they covered smaller protests.................in Paris FRANCE, and London, ENGLAND.


Defund the CBC.

Not a word on CBC TV News, not an item on Power and Politics. This was the two days afterward, or on the day it happened.


They did have an article on their website...........but that is it.


Meanwhile, they were covering smaller protests in France and England, on the CBC TV News.


They have an agenda, and reporting on large, peaceful protests that are (in their eyes) politically incorrect does not mesh with that agenda..


I guess we need to loot, burn, and assault bystanders to get any attention. I wonder if they would call us "mostly peaceful"?


Defund the CBC

This "Gun control" issue is impossible to resolve here. We've been telling idiots since day 1 that confiscating guns from law abiding, responsible citizens just won't work.

A report came out a year ago that showed a CBC bias on gun related news in 2018. I see they haven't changed.
