Global Montreal apologizes for profane Facebook post insulting “Gun-lovers”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Do you ever get the feeling that the mainstream media hates you and they employ people who actively despise you?

Well they do. Sometimes we see the truth in a moment of uncontrolled derangement.

Today, I'll show you what Global News Montreal had to say about lawful Canadian gun owners.

Global News posted a story with the headline:

“The more gun ownership, the more mass shootings. This isn't rocket science, expert says”

The story is crafted to blame innocent Canadian gun owners for the surge in illegal handgun use and gang violence in Toronto and shootings in the United States. No surprise there. I am used to the concealed bias of Canadian mainstream media outlets. It's why I have a job.

But when this story was first published to Global New’s Montreal's Facebook page, the bias wasn't all that concealed.

The story was posted with the text:

“Guns only exist to kill people that's why they were invented. Gun lovers can f**k off. Get your thrills doing something else”

The vulgar post, demeaning law-abiding gun owners prompted Global News to issue an apology via another Facebook offering:

“We have removed an erroneous post that stated an opinion and used language that is unacceptable on a global news platform. The unauthorized post was made by a former employee who inadvertently published it to the Global Montreal Facebook.”

I'm not sure that it was inadvertent and I'm not sure if I believe Global Montreal's explanation.

But I am sure this is how newsrooms talk about normal people on a whole host of issues us deplorables and sewer rats find near and dear. As rude as it was, I appreciate the honesty.

And I am sure that if a conservative news outlet had made such a bigoted and R-rated statement about a peaceful demographic of the Canadian population, they wouldn't get off with a whoopsie daisy and a sorry.

“Guns only exist to kill people.” Well then those guns are doing a pretty poor job.

“They calculated that there are over six million legally owned firearms in
Canada. Other authorities insist that this estimate is much too low and
that there are at least 20,000,000 rifles and shotguns in Canada; as
many, per capita, as in the United States.”

https://stason.org/TULARC/society/guns-canadian/26-How-many-people-in-Canada-legally-own-firearms.html

“According to 2016 vital statistics (the latest year for which figures are available), there were a total of 723 deaths in Canada from firearm injuries.”

But be aware that-
“Among these, 79% WERE SUICIDES,19% were homicides and 2% were classified as accidental (Statistics Canada 2018b).

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/85-002-x/2018001/article/54980-eng.htm

This means that there were only 137 murders using guns in 2017. 137 MURDERS BY AS MANY AS 20,000,000 GUNS.

So these guns are obviously defective and not able to meet their intended design ends.

Then you have to factor in this little tidbit which makes their intended design even more pathetic:

“Data tables accompanying the publication show 30 of them, or 13.5 percent, may not involve guns at all.”

https://thegunblog.ca/2017/11/23/is-statistics-canada-overstating-firearm-related-homicides/

Now on to this forgotten bit of info:
“In 2016, there were 84,063 physicians in Canada, representing a 2.3% increase over 2015. This was the lowest growth rate over the previous 5 years.”

https://secure.cihi.ca/free_products/Physicians_in_Canada_2016.pdf

“As many as 23,750 patients die each year due to “adverse events” (defined by researchers as “unintended injuries or complications resulting in death or prolonged hospital stay that arise from health care management.”).

https://www.leanblog.org/2009/08/statistics-on-healthcare-quality-and/

So doctors- who are trained and intended to and “exist” to heal people are far more effective killing machines that firearms which “exist to kill people”.

Obviously, we need to immediately ban doctors. If it would save one life… And think of the children!

Obviously what something was “made for” has no bearing on how it is ultimately used.

Baseball bats, hockey sticks, golf clubs, kitchen knives, hammers and more have all been use to murder people even though they were not designed to do so.

So how that gun ban working in Chicago?
“There have been 271 homicides in Chicago that fit this criteria in 2019.”

How to Legally Possess a Firearm in the State of Illinois
Illinois residents who have a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card are permitted to legally own a gun. However, the FOID card alone does not mean it is legal to carry a firearm on your person at all times. You should not carry your gun unless it is stored in the appropriate case and in a manner in which it cannot be fired. Ideally, you will not carry your gun on your person unless you are driving to a firing range or putting your belongings in a container for a move.

If you decide to carry a gun in Chicago, you will need a concealed carry permit. However, there are still some locations and situations in which it is illegal to carry a weapon.

Illinois law bars residents from illegally possessing a gun on their person. Those caught illegally possessing a gun can be subjected to a number of charges. One of the most common gun charges is the possession of a firearm. This charge can either be a misdemeanor or a felony. If facing this charge a second time, it is possible to face a Class 3 felony. Felonious acts grouped in this category can be punished by a prison stay between 2-5 years. If this is the first time you are subjected to a charge of this type and you knowingly carried a gun on your person, the charge is categorized as a Class A misdemeanor. This class of misdemeanor is punishable up to 365 days in jail along with a fine of $2,500.

Police and prosecutors agree that the city’s black market for illegal guns has thrived in no small part because of street gangs and their drug operations. Firearms, mostly handguns, are often purchased at private gun shows in neighboring states and at gun shops in Southern states with more relaxed gun laws. Those firearms are then sold on Chicago streets at a premium.

Hmmm, so Global would have us believe that former employees have access to Global accounts. Good thing they are in the Disinformation business and not the financial sector, if that is their level of security.

That whole “powerfull voices in our community” thing…because I support so many free speach and true journalism groups and have my own info network that is not dependant on public platforms, I get to see a lot of stuff before it gets censored. I saw the video of those two Scandanavian girls sacrificed for the promise of 72 virgins to come ….before all sources took it down for the sake of the suffering of their friends and families…I only watched it once…it hardened my heart against their killers to such a degree, that I care not what they or their ilk might have to say. In fact, if I was assigned to be their executioner…I would not even be interested in their last words…

If the Liberals can just confiscate all the firearms from lawful firearms owners, the 326 individuals out on bail will not be able to be a threat and will become powerful voices in our communities, Junior said so.

Robbert M
exactly what I was going to post. Where are all the new trudeau gun laws to keep these 326 creeps in jail until trial with no bail!
commented 2019-08-10 03:12:02 -0400
Canadian firearms laws require lawful firearms owners safely store their firearms, on pain of criminal prosecution if they fail to do so. Meanwhile, in failed Toronto Mayor John Lefty’s liberal utopia of Toronto, the justice system allows 326 people charged with firearms offences out on bail.

Time for the justice system in Toronto to safely store it’s criminals and terrorists.

Trudeau with his own words initiated the divorce by labelling Canada the first post Nation in the world.

Why are we banging our reasonable heads against the wall with unreasonable watcha mil call it’s? They cannot be reasonable.. I say let’s give them what they so desire.. A strip of territory/land that is predominately Liberalist wingnut voters East to West coasts.. In between the US Border and the New Canada Border.. I consider myself to be a fair and reasonable True Conservative.. Let the Trudopeians have their own followers involved in their Socialist Fantasies.. Leave us alone and out of it.. Knock yourselves out loving every moment under Trudeau’s Trudopeian slavery. If you believe it’s a wonderful safe place.. Then there should not be any resistance from the Liberalist first post Nation divorcing/separating from the current Canada.. and becoming … New Canada! You can have no borders in between your east and west coast under your new Goofball King of Trudopeia..

While they(Trudopeians) crash and burn.. We.. the New Canada will be negotiating positive Trade deals with reasonable Nations around the Globe! Also..replacing the legal system with a Justice system etc..

I say separation/divorce from Trudeaus first post nation!!

Are you saying the same ex-employee posted another inadvertent hate comment on the Montreal Global facebook account?

I’m so fed up at the liars in the media. They, and Trudeau’s goons, have zero understanding of hunters, target shooters, and people who live far from RCMP detachments. How I wish they had to deal with the hassles we do and the ignorance that they display toward us.

The meanest thing we can do to GLOBAL is to stay on their case, hold their feet to the fire, and don’t let them get away with anything.

In the near future, I think we shall see all legal guns confiscated by the Governments Islamic police force. They will want to disarm as many people as possible before the Jihad starts. Being caught with illegal firearms will probably get you extended slammer time from which you will not survive because of the Islamic Guards have a weird sense of humor and are happy with ‘any port in a storm’.
Justin Trudeau is dragging us all back to the Dark Ages. Perhaps it is time to pull our proverbial fingers out and stop the bastard.

Typical leftist BS. It’s like saying Motorcycles only exist to kill people that’s why they were invented. Motorcycles lovers can f**k off. Get your thrills doing something else
