CBC report finds gun crime stat about legal guns is “fake news”

David MenziesMission Specialist

An amazing story appeared in the CBC of all places. The news organization that is hardly pro-gun, decided to check out the ongoing narrative about where guns used in criminal acts in Canada, are being sourced.


We’ve been led to believe that half those guns are illegally-smuggled from the U.S., while the other half are legal guns that have been trafficked by law-abiding gun owners but what’s the source for this stat?

According to the CBC report, not only does the 50 per cent stat not exist, but it turns out there’s no concrete information regarding gun crime stats to begin with!

It’s really hard to form any kind of picture regarding gun crime stats given how flawed the statistical-gathering process is, yet law enforcement and elected officials continue to parrot the stats.

So what, pray tell, is the real reason for this ongoing litany of lies?

HYACINTH it was meant as a joke to mock Justie Trudeau.

The other idiotic part of /canadina gun law is that guns used in a crime suffer the extreme penalty. Thats right they are executed by dismemberment, Cut up for scrap as punishment. Only a lefty could punish an inanimate object.

- Lies, manipulated statistics & pseudoscience – all hallmarks of the leftist agenda. Man made global cooling/warming/climate change, gender theory, guns, etc. They believe it’s true because they feel it’s true. Look for them to oppose or ignore any actual investigation.

The CBC is just supporting it’s owners the Lieberal Party. The Lieberal Party want guns removed from the population so they can better control the population when the Lieberal Party decide to turn Canada into a communist dictatorship. Hitler did it and it worked very well. Nothing new here, right from the dictator’s playbook.

Sorry about the typo this is how that sentence was supposed to read.

Amy.. the innocent deserve the right to defend themselves family and property even with lethal force from the wicked WHO WOULD STEAL with intent to harm or even kill to obtain what they want illegally.

So… do you believe through every failed experiment worldwide that disarming honest people makes a difference in the crime rate.??
Actually it does make a difference because the crimes against honest people skyrocket and not just ordinary crimes but violent crimes towards them because the perpetrators know there is nothing between them and what they want.
You do know that the leftists that took over Nazi Germany disarmed the citizenry and look what happened shortly after that .!!
Pol Pot disarmed his country and then began to systematically slaughter all that got in his way because he assumed ultimate control over not only the country but peoples lives as well.
I could go on and on with the lists of dictatorships that slaughtered the citizenry very very shortly after disarming law-abiding people.
Amy.. the innocent deserve the right to defend themselves family and property even with lethal force from the wicked good steel with intent to harm or even kill to obtain what they want illegally.
Murder is already illegal and should be dealt with far more harshly than the criminal code has set out for punishment but self-defence should never be illegal.
The world is not perfect and it will never be perfect. Criminals will always have guns when the law-abiding have long since been disarmed and my question to you is where is the profit in that.!?

Amy Lynn you do realize knives are used in far more murders right? Tell me why you lefties only focus on small numbers of killings?
________________________________________________________________________________
Or why they ignore the 100,000 murders of the unborn every year? If it would save even 100,000 lives!

Amy Lynn you do realize knives are used in far more murders right? Tell me why you lefties only focus on small numbers of killings? And if you really cared about missing and murder aboriginal women you would keep dangerous aboriginal men in jail for more than ten minutes when they harm those women. And do not spew any BS about how it is White Mans fault, we know the stats and the truth.

Amy Lynn criminals do not use legal guns halfwit. And how about you take away their guns before you come after ours. Your ignorance knows no bounds.

The insanity of the left knows no bounds, now Mayor John Lefty’s soul mate, the Lord High Munchkin of London wants to ban motor vehicles in the vicinity of Parliament. What ever happened to “if we change our way of life the terrorists win”?

Speaking of Munchkins, apparently the Lord High Munchkin has a handgun:

Thanks for the Bugs episode, Robert. What a classic. I think they left out a part where Bugs said something like, “Oh, my gosh. A terrible monster is attacking an old lady”.

We live in a fallen world. Perfection will never exist until the Messiah reigns.
For some reason Lefties think they can bring about the perfect society.

Here is David Horowitz explaining that obsession they have with the impossible:. Focus on the 3:00 mark:

Ach, aye, Laddie. A WWII vet once told me that there was nothing so encouraging as going into battle with the pipes playing. Said he’d march into hell if the pies were playing.

A German guy I worked with was a kid during the war, He remembered hearing this weird wail from miles away. Sometime later he was shocked to see what looked like big tough men wearing skirts.

The English actually banned the Scots rom owning swords and bagpipes at one time.

Here are videos on how The Bagpipes won WWII on D Day:

Peoplekind?
I refuse to lower my IQ and refer to MANKIND as “peoplekind”, the Prime Minister Dufus’s overinflated ego be damned.

The next step will be for turdo to send the military in to battle with no guns or
sleeping bags.
Maybe he will he will disarm the police and have them read poetry at the next shooting.

The real question is, are the CBC telling the truth or are the public being set up for something like a major gun grab from innocent owners? The CBC are not following their own script.

ALLAN PETERSON of all the potential weapons we humans could use for violent acts against humankind – I am so sorry, I should have said peoplekind – the one that scares the hell out of me are the Bagpipes. I mean one could go insane and kill oneself just listening to the wailing of bagpipes – Sorry ROBERT MCCLELLAND, just joking, although I wish the pipers would learn another tune and stop killing the same one over and over – sorry again ROBERT MCCLELLAND, just having some fun.
Truly there is nothing better than listening to the pipes during a beautiful sunset with the full knowledge that it will go quiet eventualy.

It is much easier to crack down on regular citizens, in order to give the perception you are actually doing something, rather than actually seek out and prosecute the terrorists and criminals amongst us.

And since anything can be used as a weapon lets not forget kitchen knives, baseball bats, hammers, screw drivers, pointed sticks, hockey sticks, scissors, cars, trucks, chainsaws, bulldozers, drain cleaners, fertilizers, diesel fuel, gasoline, fingers, feet, chairs, electrical cords, golf clubs, shovels, axes, 2×4s, pipes, tire irons, rocks, fence posts, chains, bottles, cricket bats, acid, chemicals of any kind, fire extinguishers, airplanes, and the greatest of them all: Bagpipes!
