How firearms owners can defeat Trudeau’s new gun control plans

Faith GoldyArchive

Tonight, I bring a message from the social conservative camp to firearms owners. With Trudeau's Liberals signalling new gun control measures, Canada's law abiding firearms owners must zero in on key battles so not to lose the whole war.

PLUS: For many, state-run healthcare means wait lists, limited treatment options, inadequate care, and over-burdened medical staff. But now, a charter challenge emerging from Canada’s left coast might see the system changed forever to include the option of private medical care. 

Executive Director of the Canadian Constitutional Foundation Howard Anglin joins me on why the allowing private healthcare will be a good news story for all Canadians.

Then, Gavin McInnes joins me with the latest from the ground in New York following that city's most recent Islamist terror attack:

Why does the Left insist on regurgitating the same old script when American lives are on the line?

Andrew, After you call the cops when a criminal is breaking into your home or you are assaulted walking down the street what will you do ? Protect yourself or try to understand the “root cause” of the criminals actions and give him/her/whatever a hug?

Andrew said, “The highest gun crime rates are in the southeast (Tennessee, South Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana etc) which generally has very lax gun control laws.”

Blatant out and out lie.

. If you look to the south, every state and every US city with strict gun laws have the highest gun crime and murder rate"

The highest gun crime rates are in the southeast (Tennessee, South Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana etc) which generally has very lax gun control laws. Rhode Island has some of the strictest laws in America (although you can go to a nearby state, the guns you smuggle in can’t be concealed-carried), , and its firearms assautl rate is only 18/100k, vs Tenn’s 138.

Canada’s gun control laws are much strricter, as we don’t have a stated “right to bear arms”, and our crime rate is miniscule relative to theirs. I certainly doubt something like the Florida shooting could happen here, where the perp was on several watchlists and red-flagged, but still managed to buy his weapons from legal establishments – right to bear arms, and all that, even if you’re mentally unstable.

Andrew you can let the government protect you all you want, enjoy waiting for the cops. You do realize not everyone lives in the city eh? Even in the city they take a while. "

Protect me from what? I find it hard to think of a situation where owning a gun would solve a situation, rather than probably exacerbating it. If you’re not in a gang and deliberately seeking trouble, you’re far more likely to accidentally shoot yourself than some criminal

I wouldn’t bother with antique swords. Modern steel is far superior as long as the sword is made properly. I got a few things from here:

Pretty neat stuff.

I went to an antique store the other day and found an original knight’s sword for a decent price. As well, who needs guns when you have trained boys up in the way they should go. They all know how to handle the solid wood stick end of a mop or broom swung in all different directions around their body……

I live in the central interior of British Columbia, Canada. On a remote lake. I spend lots of time with horses, dogs, guns and literature…

You are implying that criminals care about laws. If someone wanted a gun they could get one as long as they have the money. There will always be illegal guns, whether hand crafted or smuggled or whatever. The Government having a way for a citizen to own firearms is a good way to get well intending citizens on the government’s side. It is giving the people an option to confront the authorities and say, “Hello, I want to be on your side, AND I want to obey the law.”

So… at least we have that. This is a good thing and I don’t think I would be in this country if this was not the case.

Law abiding gun owner are still at a disadvantage however, because they CARE ABOUT THE LAW, and therefore don’t walk about with guns. Criminals don’t care, and you are all at their (the criminals) mercy in the end.

Could we please get a source for this “new Gun Control Plan” please?
I have heard nothing of this.

Reminded of an old joke.
Man sees a prowler in his yard, phones the police and they say they have no one available to respond.
He says OK and hangs up, then phones them back 2 minutes later and says not to bother as the prowler attacked him and he shot the attacker. Very quickly police arrive and the police chopper is hovering around. The police ask where the attacker is, he says there was no attack. The police ask him “I thought you said you shot the prowler” ,he responds by saying “I thought you guys said no one was available to respond!!”

Andrew yes there would be , are you truly idiotic? You do realize criminals do not follow the law eh?
commented 2016-09-23 01:11:21 -0400
Andrew Stephenson, do you know how ridiculous that statement is? Law abiding gun owners don’t wear masks and hijack vehicles, and those that do don’t acquire there guns through legal means. If you look to the south, every state and every US city with strict gun laws have the highest gun crime and murder rate. A disarmed citizenry is a vulnerable citizenry…. vulnerable to criminals, terrorists and an authoritarian government (which generally means a Marxist, Socialist Liberal government). Of course, that’s what the Liberal government, law enforcement and the judiciary want. They want compliant, controllable sheep. Why don’t you study the stats and educate yourself.

“3 armed men in a black suv wearing face masks tried hijacking a farm hand”

If owning guns was a capital crime, there wouldn’t have been armed men in a black SUV, would there?

This summer those TERDS in the rcmp have reclassified the Butler Creek magazine that carries more than the usual 10 rounds for the Ruger 10/22. Yes folks this is a 22 rifle. You prevent me from owning, using, looking at, a butler creek mag in my Ruger 10/22? I will never lift a finger to help you terds in any way, shape or form in future – you terds.

Did you hear what happened in Saskatchewan, outside of Saskatoon?

3 armed men in a black suv wearing face masks tried hijacking a farm hand on a desolate piece of hi-way, luckily he ran their road block and got away safe. Now all the farmers in the area are armed, they are even packing guns in their combines.

These are signs of a collapsing system, more to come as crime rates are going up daily. We have even had to patrol our little town of 300 after a rash of break ins and gas theft.

Give up my guns? Not on your life lil’ tater.

Aye, Keith, but who is going to do the pulling? Not the Tater Tot, that’s for sure.
commented 2016-09-22 22:50:10 -0400
I believe every freedom loving Canadian under the age of 60 should purchase firearms now and stock up on ammunition before that opportunity to do so legally is taken away. Then hide your firearms and ammunition in a safe place where the cop, the government and the UN enforcers will never be able to find them. I’m too old to be worried about that, but those younger than me will probably live long enough to experience a coming dictatorship and possibly civil war. You will be glad for guns when that time comes.

John Day, governments NEVER want to SAVE money. They want to SPEND money…. not theirs, the tax payer’s…. usually on irresponsible and frivolous things. But they’ll certainly spend it on health care, as long as it’s spent on frivolous and irresponsible health care projects.
commented 2016-09-22 22:24:51 -0400
Gun owning law abiding citizens present absolutely no threat to other law abiding citizens… gun free zones are targets for criminals and other sub humans who wish to do harm on innocent people Because they know there is nobody there to stop them and the authorities usually only arrive after the fact to take bodies away and to take statements from survivors.
I don’t think there was ever a time in history where murderers and thieves bothered to take the time to obtain a gun permit before going on their murderous rampages.. unarmed citizens are targets and resources for the criminal element who would do them wrong. The statistics are out there for every country who practices gun control… Either the crime rate goes straight up and through the roof because only the criminals have guns or the country evolves into a armed dictatorship who through violence and aggression subvert the people… the lessons of gun control should be represented by cold hard facts that speak for themselves in a positive light and not based on knee-jerk reactions or crying emotions that have no place in objective and critical thinking.
If gun control worked then police would not ever need to be armed.. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens does not make anybody safer and does not take guns away from criminals or do anything to help us it only leaves us defenseless to protect ourselves from a threatening element.
Switzerland has an automatic military style tactical rifle Tucked away with ammunition in almost each and every household… Nobody bothers to mention that it has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world.. And they as law abiding gun owners don’t run around shooting each other up.
Whoever reads this post please make a comment one way or the other if you agree or disagree with the statements I’ve made..

New gun control measures?
I’m just going to obey the new gun control measures like a large majority of Canadian citizens respect the existing marijuana laws; they don’t.
I’m keeping my guns.
Be darned if a (clueless) PM and Homeland Security minister will give me advice on what firearms are acceptable, when they refuse to provide Canadians the decency to appropriately vett all new migrants entering our Country, or deport nationalized Canadians for terrorism, or fighting for ISIS.
commented 2016-09-22 22:17:34 -0400
Every conscious person alive now knows that the intent of all the restrictive firearm laws is not to protect public safety but to defend in advance armed insurrection from starving people against the overreach of ambitious administrations.

Faith, thank you for a clear explanation of some of the challenges facing Canadian gun owners. I hope that it will encourage many more people to get in the fight. Gun owners are one of if not the largest voting block in Canada and if we would just once stand together for a common cause our problems would evaporate. Joining and supporting the CSSA would be a great first step. Keep up the great work.

commented 2016-09-22 22:04:09 -0400
Any further gun laws punishing lawful owners will fail – all that will be accomplished is massive non compliance and wide disrepute for the RCMP.

- Trudeau’s Liberals are determined to hand over all of Canada’s sovereignty to the UN – gun laws included. The answer may be to pull out of the UN altogether.

- The biggest threat to the West isn’t Muslims, it’s the “progressive” globalists that’s enabling them & supporting them.

- People who fight a public / private option are the very ones that will run to the US for needed procedures (if they have the means to do so.)

Faith, if 15% of people are allowed to go to private health care, what is to stop a province from reducing thier financial input by 15%? They will always want to save money.
