I feel that crime rate stats should not be censused during a "shut in" and" high tension" environment such as what we have just endured these past 3 Covid years? In "normal" stress years where one can go to social places such as movies and community parties,etc to vent, these places were naturally available during those stats studies. I say wait till it's over for stats. Don't fault the system, and they did their best, doctors and politicians to name a few. The Covid remedy was and is the right one.Yes, BitWhys, and if you are trying to piss me off you (and Mr. Day) are succeeding ROYALLY!
That the Liberals have the ARROGANCE to whip their members over this damned thing that has cost TWO THOUSAND times what they promised, and has been used to feed money to their gangster buddies in Quebec is bad enough...........that the NDP and Bloc, being socialist idiots, will do the same is to be expected.
The registry is USELESS.
It does NOTHING but cost BILLIONS to harass honest citizens.....THAT'S IT!!!!!!
Look at the (somewhat fixed) post above..........the comparison amazed me, and it has confirmed every belief I have in the responsibility of the average citizen, and confirmed the uselessness of practically ALL gun control. A waste of time and money.
Notice if you will, as our gun laws took effect, murder rates here went UP, and while the Americans loosened their laws, murder rates went DOWN, until we kill MUCH more than they do.......
Support this crap if you will, but understand it is money that could be spent putting cops on the street, or improving health care.
As for us shooters, we'll keeping ignoring what laws we can, and obeying those we absolutely must to carry on our sport.
Adjusted for national population and age groups?Somehow gun control became insanely expensive and I don't know how that happened but I don't think it is useless.
One thing that was interesting was that the worst place for murders in the whole of the civilized world was the Northwest Territories.
FACT: Comparison of U.S. gun homicides to other industrialized countries:
In 1998 (the most recent year for which this data has been compiled), handguns murdered:
* 373 people in Germany
* 151 people in Canada
* 57 people in Australia
* 19 people in Japan
* 54 people in England and Wales, and
* 11,789 people in the United States
It is what the left side of the political spectrum always does . Accuse the other side of doing what they are .
"Gun control groups accuse O'Toole of deceiving Canadians on firearms by 'playing with semantics"
Hilarious. The gall of these people.
The semantics game is all theirs. They have labelled everything from modern semi-auto sporters to rimfire plinkers, to double barreled dangerous game rifles as "assault weapons", and then accuse O'Toole of playing with semantics.
O'Toole was in the military, and he knows what is an assault rifle, and what is not. The guns banned in May 2020 are NOT assault weapons.
Assault weapons were banned in 1978. O'Toole merely ignored the misleading labels applied to sporting guns by gun grabbers and the Liberals, and referred back to the actual ban on assault weapons.
O'Toole is being misleading, yes, but perfectly truthful.........the Liberals and gun grabbers are getting bitten by their own dishonesty.
It would appear that the liberals just admitted their draconian gun laws are not having the desired effect. Maybe if they targeted criminals instead of taxpayers they would have more success.Our communities should be safe and peaceful places to live and raise children, but American-style gun violence is rising. 2019 saw the rate of firearm-related offences rise for the fifth straight year, and the homicide rate was the highest in a decade, with 40% of homicides involving firearms...liberal.ca
