“Gun amnesty” program? Surrey RCMP Assistant Commissioner “needs a license for his mouth”

Brian LilleyArchive

Police who don’t know how to deal with criminals and their illegal handguns targeting legal gun owners instead? Say it isn't so. A story out of Surrey BC about a “gun amnesty” program that does this very thing caught my eye recently. 

I spoke with Tony Bernardo, Executive Director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association about this program that will see police checking up on people who are registered to own restricted firearms to make sure everything is on the up and up.

You’ve heard me talk about how police often don’t know how to deal with hardened criminals with guns, so they instead turn to policing law abiding gun owners -- simply because they can, and they’re doing it again.

We discuss other items on the radar for gun owners in Canada and why the gun control system in Canada is an absolute mess.

Sean Penson ;
You are correct we do not have a constitutional right to bare arms. That is the US. But Sean we do have the right to self protection and self preservation against those that wish to do us harm, no matter what the police say. If this was not the case, then why do we have a gun permit in the first place? So you argument makes no sense. But here’s the thing Sean, you make a choice to have a firearm for yourself. You Do Not have the right to take away that choice from others! And if you think you do have that right, please come to my home and prove it! I have some advice for you when you get here!

Why didn’t anyone in the media ask for the proof from the RCMP officer about where these guns come from. I know I would have. But here’s the thing. They want to take away the guns from the law abiding citizens of this country, so that we can not defend ourselves. Not so much from the criminal element, but from the government. It’s easier to control the citizens by force if they can not defend themselves. It’s the gateway to a dictatorship. This is why it was put in place in the US’s constitution. To protect them from government. They are more scary then any criminal element in society. I would put it to anyone that wants the police to take away our law abiding citizens guns, to first take them from the police! After all the police have killed more people in this country then law abiding citizens, but to government we are the scary ones! Don’t let this or any government take away our civil rights.

The first ‘testing of the waters’ the RCMP/politicians executed and got away with – The High River Gun Grab – no one was home…I wonder what will happen at the next ‘testing of the waters’ when the gun-grab victims will be at home – because it is coming…

Wow Sean ever been out in the country …you don`t really mean hunters can`t hunt or farmers can`t rid themselves of leg breaking gopher holes do you , after all this is /or use to be Canada. You have said some dumb shit before but I think this one takes the cake. You are consistent anyway …unbelievable

Sorry, should be Brent Horton, not Brent North. Not sure why I typed “North.”
commented 2016-04-13 12:45:04 -0400
Brent North said, “So when the burning, looting, raping, and the enforcement of sharia law happens in Canada, Where will you be Sean Penson?”

Hopefully out front being raped, boned, then beheaded by his Muslim lovers … in that order, but probably will be hiding in his mommies house basement behind her skirt crying like the little whimpering pansy that he is.

" I invite everyone to comment on this statement. "

I’ve seen and heard about cops and their lack of shooting abilities. They are for the most part pathetic shots, couldnt hit the broad side of a barn. They at best get to fire off maybe 100 rounds a year. I do three times that in a weekend!! Last year I went through just over 3000 rounds in practice and competition shoots. One of the competition events I shoot at we have a couple of cops come because they say, it is the ONLY practice they get!

And someone like Sean only wants the cops to have guns? Please…

No worries buddy,
Canadian gun laws are a nightmare at best.
But ask yourself this question………….
Do you really trust the police?
I don’t, in fact, I invite everyone to comment on this statement. Perhaps we will learn of some new police corruption, scandal, cover-up, etc.?
Once again, here we have another terminally ill patient suffering from " Trudope Rectal Syndrome ".
For those of us who are not familiar with this calamity, it only affects left wing progressive libtards.
The main symptoms consist of ones head shoved so far up their own ass, that only surgery can save them.
And we do have the right to own arms under The Magna Carta/British Parliamentary Rule.
Before Pierre Idiot Trudeau took over, we had open and closed carry permits for sidearms.
There were no prohib licences, because we didn’t need them. But Trudeau senior opened the flood gates to all the parasitic scum of the world, just to grow his voting base, and presto! Suddenly we have gun crime!
Now Justin Turdbird Junior is opening the flood gates to thousands of muslim parasites!
So when the burning, looting, raping, and the enforcement of sharia law happens in Canada,
Where will you be Sean Penson?

high river all over again. RCMP are nothing but the armed wing of the liberal party.
commented 2016-04-13 08:34:35 -0400
They try that, it will cost them BILLIONS in the buy back. If they just attempt to confiscate our firearms, we all sue the government.
commented 2016-04-13 08:13:35 -0400
After the UK study is completed, the liberal government will probably make it illegal for Canadians to possess firearms of any kind all in the name of public safety.
All liberals lie, cheat and steal to further their own twisted agenda.
commented 2016-04-13 08:12:00 -0400
Personally, I think it is wrong to not allow new people to have prohib firearms, these relics of history, including full autos. People have owned these prohib firearms for 70 years and never had an issue with them. So if someone is proficient at handling full auto, why cant new people own them? Makes no sense to me. But under our laws, once a 12(x) licenced person dies, their collection of prohibs must be destroyed. Not only is that a loss of our heritage, it is also a huge monetary loss to the estate of the family, in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
commented 2016-04-13 08:07:27 -0400
““Prohibited” weapons can not be registered and can not be held by individuals.”

Lots of people have 12(x) prohib licences, including owning full autos. They were all grandfathered in when C68 came into existence. It’s only new people who cannot get a prohib licence.

“No resident, other than an on duty peace officer, need have any fire arms. This is Canada; we don’t have the constitutional right to bear arms”

You are correct, I dont need firearms. I WANT firearms, so screw you.

This is really a surprise?! The royal Canadian monitoring police did their famous gun grab in alberta under the guise of a disaster, now its under the guise of a public safety in b.c. We are not that far away from them walking into our houses for no reason at all and with out warrant. Time to separate people, the current federal government is to busy stroking themselves for votes from immigrants. Baby turdeu is to much like his father, a liar and a thief from the west. Lets tell them goodbye and good riddance once and for all, and tell them to take their disgraceful rcmp with them.
commented 2016-04-13 00:27:58 -0400
Sorry Brent I don’t mean to nitpick I guess I should have pointed out that certain weapons are in and out of the prohibited list by legislation on a yearly basis. I’m sure that most gun owners have been through the process of re-registration when the regulations change. It’s the restricted weapons this story is about and I personally feel that the police have a responsibility to ensure that they are accounted for.

P.T. Philips;
Many people in Canada, do in fact have prohibited firearms licenses.
I happen to count several of them as my friends.
The last of these licenses stopped being issued in the eighties, I know because I could have written my test for a short barrel sidearm.
Before you call out Tony, please do us all a favor and do your research first.
Your casual observation indicating random checks at owners residences are ok, is not only offside, but totally out in left field!
Perhaps that is where you reside?
commented 2016-04-12 20:11:57 -0400
they aren’t scared of street thugs, they are scared of a civil uprising from blue collar citizens.
commented 2016-04-12 19:54:58 -0400
Tony is a bit confused and providing some misleading information. . “Restricted weapons” are registered to individuals and must be held at the address where they are registered. “Prohibited” weapons can not be registered and can not be held by individuals. I would think that the occasional random check to ensure that the guns are stored where they should be and not “missing” makes good sense. (Some people transfer residences and forget to update the registration.) It’s a small issue because of course the overwhelming number of guns used in crime are not registered. Let’s just ensure that we haven’t got to the point where we “register and forget.” Restricted weapon ownership should come with some responsibility.

You can be the best guy or gal in the world – the exact type of person the police should be in love with.

Instead they harass you – because you registered a firearm.

One of my neighbours must have over 50 different firearms – all given to him by older male family members – all clean and unregistered.

Why does he refuse to register?

Because it allows police to walk in to his house at any time for any reason – using the pretext of a firearm security check.

When the police start rewarding people who register – rather than harassing them – the rcmp will see far fewer ghost firearms and a huge increase in their well deserved piss poor reputation.

It would be nice to see them apologize for their vandalizing the homes of legal firearms owners during a certain Alberta flood – not going to happen.

In the meantime – rcmp, qpp and opp can piss off – they have all lost the support of this ex-mil, top secret clearance, tax paying citizen.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

Any of you who did not understand what gun & ownership registry was all about – many of us told you about this very thing. (history does repeat itself – because people do not learn from it) But you had nothing to hide? Ya, well now you may wish you hadn’t done the “legal” thing. That legal thing was not LEGAL it was a treasonous move to make you the victim.
Hope you now understand.
commented 2016-04-12 18:40:12 -0400

Libranos prefer to keep their organized crime friends and their islamic terrorists armed and ready to attack. Crimes??? It must be a “root cause” thing, right Bernie Trudeau, you mentally deficient turd.

So gun registry legislation for the masses is on its way back so no one can defend themselves.
