Why Trudeau's Liberals are pretending THIS gun control study doesn't exist

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

A new order paper shows the Liberals aren’t interested in studying both sides of the firearms debate before they grab your guns.

Bill C71 makes it harder for lawful people to get and then keep their gun license, bans rifles already in circulation, and tracks license holders when they buy, sell, contemplate selling or give away their guns.

And while the Liberals claim Bill C71 doesn’t technically create another gun registry, it does require gun stores to track buyers and guns.

The bill, already passed in the House of Commons. is making its way through Senate committee hearings where Conservative senators are doing their best to gut it and make it toothless.

The Liberals tout this legislation is a “balanced” approach to public safety. But did Trudeau’s Liberals actually ponder any real evidence, in the form on an existing parliamentary study, that examines the benefits of gun ownership and the dangers of restricting gun access to lawful Canadians?

Saskatchewan Conservative MP Brad Trost asked the government these questions in the form of an order paper question:

“With regard to firearms policy, has the government analyzed the benefits of gun ownership and if so, what are the details of such an analysis, including whether the government has analyzed the topics cited in the Library of Parliament Parliamentary Research Branch paper entitled the Benefits of Gun Ownership, prepared by Lynn Casavant, political and social affairs division, and Antony G Jackson, economic division, dated April 2nd 2004.”

The Liberals have not looked at that study. They instead are relying on direction from their hand selected Canadian Firearms Advisory Committee, a panel heavily weighted in favor of gun control.

I dug up that 2004 study and read through it. Today I’ll show you why the Liberals are pretending that study doesn’t exist. It “provides an inventory of perceived individual, societal and economic benefits of gun ownership for Canadians" and cites facts dangerous to the Liberals preconceived notions about gun ownership in Canada.

Facts like:

“Since firearms are used in Canada around 66,000 times each year to defend against either human or animal threats, and more importantly, approximately 30,000 times annually to protect against criminal violence. This implies that the private ownership of firearms contributes significantly to public safety.”

We know through the tireless work of the folks at the Gun Blog, who obtained details of the government's C71 consultation sessions last year, the government has failed to engage with atleast seven members of the firearms community listed as stakeholders while reporting that these excluded groups and stakeholders were involved in meetings.

The Liberals aren’t interested in balance, facts or statistics. They want to scapegoat the lawful for crimes that others commit.

The highest crime rates in the industrialized world have the toughest gun laws. – Great Britain and Australia. With our tough gun laws, Canada is 3rd highest. The lowest crime rate is Switzerland which requires all men over the age of 18 to receive a true assault rifle and store it in his home. Second lowest crime rate is the US which allows citizens to defend themselves with firearms. Anti-gun laws only work if you are a criminal who gets a safe working environment, the media which gets more crime to report, or a liberal politician who get a more docile society.

To prove my point this story shines the spotlight on item #4.
There are 8 steps to becoming a socialist/communist state in North America.
6/8 are currently in place in Canada alone.

1. Health Care:
Control health care and you control the population. It controls the income of the nation.

2. Poverty:
Increase poverty levels as high as possible. The poor are easy to control on welfare because they won’t resist if you are providing for them.
When the unemployed outweigh the employed, national collapse occurs. With more than 80% of muslim “refugees” living on your dollar, poverty is skyrocketing in Canada.

3. Debt:
Increase national debt to an unsustainable level so to increase taxes on the rich (the rich are considered those who are employed).
Take taxes and distribute to those who are unemployed (welfare)
-Trudeau wants to bring 1.2 million “refugees” into Canada while vowing to “pay” $50,000.00 per family. Let’s use some very basic conservative numbers here. We’ll say there are 4 people per family and there will be 1 million “refugees” arriving. 1 million / 4 = 250,000 (families). 250,000 x $50,000.00 = $12,500,000,000.00 BILLION dollars per year in welfare payments alone for LIFE. The taxpayer foots this bill. This factor directly affects #2 as well as #5. Don’t forget that medical & eye care are bonuses. “Free” education is also included for them all.

4. Gun control:
Remove citizen’s ability to defend themselves from government control. To introduce a police state you first disarm ALL citizens. Do you really believe this will affect the criminals in this country? No chance.

5. Welfare:
Control all aspects of people’s lives (food, housing, income etc) once you control the people you now control the voters. The more “refugees” that enter the country the more votes Trudeau will gain.

6. Education:
Control what children are being taught today and tomorrow it will become policy.
-teach children they have the right to entitlement and it becomes policy
-teach children they have the right to welfare over working and that too becomes policy
-teach children that homosexuality and transgender lifestyles are natural and it becomes policy.

7. Class warfare:
Divide the employed from the unemployed (welfare recipients) and you gain full support for all decisions government will impose by force against the employed.
-racially divide the people
-economically divide the people
-politically divide the people

8. Silencing the free press
- Dictators always get started by suppressing free press. In other words it’s a consolidation of power. When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press or at least the press that criticizes them.
-The free press reports on all the above mentioned factors regardless of politicians demands or opinions. Without honest and current updates how can the public understand the state of the nation?
The bulk of Canada’s national press is already controlled by Trudeau.

These steps make it easier to tax the rich and create anger which gathers voting support of the poor. Socialism is just around the corner. What are you going to do about it now Canada?

Those stats are pretty well right on the money. Having worked In the Criminal justice system for most of my adult life before retiring I’ve got a lot of first hand experience on the subject of firearm control.
When I worked in institutional corrections for the last few years it was my job to interview each new inmate and set up a case management plan. One of the questions I asked each inmate with a history of violence was what they thought about the firearm restrictions. With extremely few exceptions their answers were that they were all for them as it made their jobs(?), and they could buy any kind of firearm, including restricted and prohibited, and on a few occasions hand grenades, with no serial numbers if back alley car trunk sales. When I asked them if it was worth the time they would do in prison when they got caught they usually laughed and explain the with a good lawyer they could play musical judges where they would get remand after remand until they got in front of a judge who had a reputation of slap on the wrist sentences and because they were remanded in custody they got double time credit against their sentences for every day they spent in remand.
For the record, the majority had more perks while waiting in remand than they did on the street.
It’s not the legitimate firearms owners that are a problem. It’s the lack of hard punishment by the courts that is the problem. Appointed judges are just recycled lawyers that seem to be more interested in court protocol than guilt or innocence that are the problem.

Gun control is all about making things easy for Trudeau’s Islamic death squad friends or at the very least making it easy for his Marxist goons to arrest you and take you to the slave labour camps in northern Canada.

Ahhh yes, the Liberals/Dems/Left taking away guns sets the stage for criminals and left wing governments (but I repeat myself) to take control of society.

Inside every leftist is a totalitarian Marxist screaming to get out.

MESSING WITH CANADIAN’S FIREARMS IS BAD

Get even with the left about this. Broadcast loudly the truth about how those Boeing 737 Max 8 planes were brought down by their ISIS Orc supporting jihadist co-pilots. Both planes were “sudden jihad syndrome” events. ALLAH AKBAR was screamed in the cockpits at the end. Cockpit voice recordings confirm this.

The problem isn’t with the Boeing 737 Max 8. The problem is with ISIS sympathizing JIHADI PILOTS.

I would fly on a MAX 8 any day, just so ling as non-Muslims were flying the plane!

Do not fly in a plane when Orcs are the pilots.

This battle for ‘common-sense’ gun control laws pits emotion and passion against logic and reason. All too often in such a contest, logic loses. So, expect more meaningless, if not harmful, ‘gun control’ legislation. Good news – if you’re a crook. Larry Elder

Gun control is always one lie on the slippery slope after another.

Trudeau and his cohorts are more interested in protecting their Islamic friends, when the Jihad begins. They want to balance the battlefield in favor of what will be ‘the enemy within’.
Trudeau and his cohorts are traitors and as such should be…..Stopped?

The reason the Libs ignored it is as follows:
The Three Pillars of Leftiedom:
First Pillar: Leftists never learn from their mistakes.
Second Pillar: Leftists never learn form other people’s mistakes.
Third Pillar: Leftists refuse to exercise discernment.

And I suppose a fourth pillar is the Leftists want to believe and promulgate lies.
Why someone would want to do that is a bit baffling until you go back to the Garden:

1Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and YOU WILL BE LIKE GOD, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.

Genesis 3:1-6

She believed the lie and got him to believe it too. And the world suffers to this day and until the Messiah returns.
