Victory for gun owners? @RCMPAlberta tweets during Fort Mac evacuation, to calm fears of High River repeat

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

Ever since fires forced evacuations in Fort McMurray, some wondered, are we going to see a repeat of High River where gun owners’ rights were infringed upon by the RCMP during a time when citizens were dealing with a devastating natural disaster?

The actions of the RCMP after the damaging floods caused further damage in the form of broken trust between police and the people they are supposed to serve.

No one is allowed into Fort Mac right now but we’re being told by police that no assault on civil liberties is happening this time and that there has been a decree from their unified command structure not to repeat what happened in High River.

They’ve even taken to Twitter to allay concerns about entering homes where inhabitants may have been forced to make a hasty retreat in order to stay safe. They’re restricting their activities to securing homes and dealing with property crimes, and not committing them.

If true, this is a victory for all those who fought to bring attention to and denounce the infringements that occurred in High River.

It’s a victory for gun owners and confirms, police can not, without a warrant, randomly enter your homes and seize your property.

When a natural disaster occurs like the flooding in High River or out of control wildfires in Fort Mac, the first question should always be, how do we make sure everyone’s safe. But the second question can’t be, “will my possessions be safe” because that could lead to a situation where people are reluctant to leave.

So far, it looks like things are going in the right direction but here at The Rebel, we’ll keep watching.

The RCMP is not to be trusted.

The RCMP will wait for the dust to settle and then start over again – breaking into peoples houses and stealing.

Next time they will have to be watched again. And again. And again.

Police are the strong arm of the politician and the enemy of the people

As I was listening to Brian, in the back of my mind I was considering how someone – either liberal or conservative – would take this story if they were incognizant of the RCMP’s HIGH RIVER GUN GRAB.
I was wondering how they might take this ‘decree from the unified command structure, not to repeat’ the kicking in of 1000’s of doors of the homes of private citizens after they were forced to evacuate, and then stealing their firearms and ammunition, sans warrants.
What percentage of Canadians even know about THE RCMP HIGH RIVER GUN GRAB, let alone the ones who are the victims of the Media Party’s misinformation, spin, outright lies and sins of omission, as well as the inaction from ‘the government’ to resolve this treasonous criminality, and all this in aid if their zeal to promote their socialist anti-gun-nut agenda and cover up yet another criminal exploit of our master’s jack-booted thug hirelings.
“Victory for gun owners?” Maybe…but my fears don’t feel calmed at all…and for the victims of Notley’s Fire who lost their homes – I guess it doesn’t really matter that much right now anyway.

Too many eyes are on the RCMP right now and they know it, so I doubt they will repeat the same crimes they committed in High River up in Ft. Mac.

However, that does not change the attitude the RCMP hold that they can break the law and violate peoples’ rights, especially of gun owners. There will come another time when they think Canadians have lowered their guard and stopped watching them when they will do it again.

At one time in my life I had a great deal of respect for the RCMP. Sadly those days are long gone for me.

I cannot respect an institution that demonstrates no respect for the people they serve.

I’ve wondered what this whole "allowed back into Fort Mac) thing is about. Are there police actually stopping people from going to their homes? If it was my home that got burned, it would take more than a mountie to stop me from going there. It’s been announced for a couple days now that the town isn’t in danger of further firestorms, so I’d be there first thing trying to salvage whatever I could. Even if I just wanted to see with my own eyes that it’s all gone, at least I’d want to do that. To have some beurocrat tell me that I can’t would have about as much effect as the “velvet rope” ever has. And yes, I know what all the “velvet rope” supporters would say, like “what if you fall thru a burned floorboard and break your leg, who’s responsible then?” Well, the answer would be me, wouldn’t it? I’d be taking responsibility for myself. If I broke my leg, I’d expect to pay for my own cast. It’s called personal responsibility, and that’s a concept beyond what most leftists can understand.

Jay, what the hell are you talking about? I wonder, often, if you are blind (sorry, I mean suffering from a sight deficit). It’s like you type a bunch of stupid shit and just send it off. I also wonder, briefly, if you ever think that what you’ve just posted has nothing to do with the story but oh, well. I’m not a big fan of censorship but I really don’t have a problem with someone monitoring these stories for relevance in the responses. Or useless repeats (Nelson, I’m pointing at you!).
commented 2016-05-12 03:03:12 -0400
Whatever you say idiotic hypocrite. I don’t think you should be commenting here though Jay because you don’t comment on the topic, and you constantly prove you are a hypocrite, and now you prove to be a liar as well.
commented 2016-05-12 02:59:49 -0400
D Mary, you know that you were called out on here because of your ‘personal’ problems. I did not make a big deal out of it even after The Rebel intervened. My personal opinion is that you should be allowed to comment on here. For me it is a freedom of speech matter.
commented 2016-05-12 02:41:14 -0400
Everyone says you are an idiot Jay, not just some.
commented 2016-05-12 02:33:09 -0400
Some say that I am idiotic. I say:

The firefighters in Fort McMurray have done an outstanding job.

80, 000 people were moved safely out of town.

1, 600 homes and buildings burned to the ground, but ten times that number of buildings were saved.

The critics on this site want to say that everything was lost, and that Fort McMurray is nothing but a disaster.

Sometimes we just have to say “thanks”.
commented 2016-05-12 02:18:33 -0400
Ok Jay, I will say thanks. Thanks Jay for once again opening your mouth and removing all doubt that you are a complete idiotic hypocrite.

Jay Kelly then why did they skip houses in High River? You are one brain dead idiot who makes things up then assumes they happened. And sorry but Radical Islam wants to conquer the world, your denial does not change anything.
commented 2016-05-12 01:12:35 -0400
Jay, where in the story do they talk about firefighters? They don’t, and once again you prove you are a hypocrite and you have nothing to say about the topic. You are a clown and an idiot!
commented 2016-05-12 01:04:03 -0400
CLOWN!” Is that really the best name for those who have laid out their lives for the people of Fort McMurray?

Maybe “heroes” is a better term.

Maybe we should give some thought before we speak.
commented 2016-05-12 00:46:36 -0400
Jay k……thanks for proving my point. You are the epitome of the leftist progressive drivel. I won’t dignify your stupid comment with an answer. In your case, the lights are on but nobody is home. Clown.
commented 2016-05-12 00:29:12 -0400
Krchnak and D Mary, some people are suspicious. They want to claim the right (understandably) that a man’s home is his castle. Therefore no police should enter in — they might find a firearm or something else and violate the rights of the homeowner.

First responders — fire-fighters and others —arrived in the communities and want to make sure everyone is safe. They even enter the homes.

Krchnak, you say “shut the fuck up you clown”.

Do you really want to criticize the firemen and other first responders? It is your choice.
commented 2016-05-12 00:02:20 -0400
Jay k…..who the fuck are you……really? You are always the all knowing, most informed clown on everything. Not one person one this site has criticized a first responder(s) during the events last week. However, based on the actions in High River, lawful gun owners have every right to be sceptical of the law. It is one thing to enter a home and do a quick check for people or pets and quite another to ransack closets, storage spaces etc. looking for something that is none of their business. So I say…..shut the fuck up you clown.
commented 2016-05-12 00:01:15 -0400
Jay, you keep saying that over and over, but absolutely no one has said one bad thing about the firefighters, not a single bad comment. You make yourself look like a complete fool. The criticisms are levelled directly at the RCMP, and after their illegal gun seizures in the High River flood, they have earned it. Funny how when you can not argue the point of an article, you repeat your praise of the firefighters, which absolutely no one has ever said anything bad about them. You prove over and over what a complete idiot you are.
commented 2016-05-11 23:29:26 -0400
In Fort McMurray the police and fire fighters have gone door to door to make sure that people are safe.

These courageous men and women have been working overtime — even twenty-hour shifts — to ensure the safety of the residents in that area.

Please do not make fun of them or accuse them of entering houses illegally.

If a house is unlocked they may go in to make sure no-one is there who might be endangered by the fire.

There is no “Islamic invasion” or other ridiculous threat to the people.

You cannot count on your government to protect you from the types they are bringing in from Syria. That’s why you must arm yourselves with guns and bullets.

Guns and bullets are selling out of stock in some EU countries because of the Islamic invasion.

People, you need to get your guns now, while you still can. Most important is your supply of ammo. Buy lots of rifle bullets and 12 guage shot gun shells. Not the bird shot, but the 00 Buck or lead slugs.

The RCMP are the enemy of the people – they might not have done it this time – we will know soon enough – but there will be a next time.

NEVER trust them.
