Gun control is a key item in Trudeau's plan, mandate letters show

Brian LilleyArchive

The Liberals promised more gun control and now that we've seen the ministerial mandate letters, we know gun control is key to his plan.

The letters to Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale both mention taking action on guns.

They speak about getting handguns and assault weapons off our streets, strengthening controls on handguns and assault weapons and repealing some elements of Bill C-42. Which parts? The parts that made life easier for law abiding gun owners to transport their firearms to the range or their hunt camp.

There's more as I detail in my report but every action they're proposing, comes down to this one fact; Politicians know how to target legal gun owners but they don’t know what to do about street gangs so….they target what they can see.

Whether it's enhanced background checks, additions to the Canadian Firearms Advisory committee or the start of a new gun registry, it will all lead to more paperwork and restrictions on law abiding gun owners but won't really do anything to take guns away from criminals.

In a previous interview about what the Liberals might do, which you can watch here, Tony Bernardo, Executive Director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association warned that there may not be anything left to register anyway if the proposed marking system goes into effect because it would bankrupt and shut down the Canadian gun industry.

I'll continue to monitor each and every step the new government takes on this file and bring you updates as soon as I can. Remember, I’m on your side.

The High River gun grab violated every Canadian's civil liberties, and must never be repeated.

Thank you Brian my friend, for standing with law abiding Canadian gun owners like myself. As far as I’m now concerned, we Canadians also have the right that our American friends & neighbors do, (2nd amendant ?) to possess firearms to protect us from rogue governments like Treasonous Trudeaus. I & many others will NEVER give up this right, ever! We, like my father & many others, who fought & died for this right, will never succumb to treasonous idiot bastards like Trudeau & his gutless treasonous POS father who rode around Montreal on his free inherited motorcycle, never having to work a day in his life, wth a Nazi symbol on his helmet during ww2 while my dad & all real men fought & died for our freedoms. FUCK YOU JUSTIN TRUDEAU! Fuck all his supporters. Treasonous brain dead f’ng idiots all! Including btw, all my family members & friends alike, whore so misinformed by corrupt MSM that they support a f’cking idiot like the treasonous prick Trudeau.

If we could guarantee the terrorists would go after Justin Trudeau, I wouldn’t worry about his proposed policies. Fact is, they won’t. You see, Trudeau is protected by men with guns. The rest of us are the “soft targets”… soft target of course meaning unarmed helpless civilians. How many universities/schools, theaters, malls, churches, etc. have to be shot up by terrorists and psycho’s before the US and Canadian governments acknowledge this is the way things are now? The new reality? The criminals are not targeting the police or the military or the government – instead they are intentionally going to places that have a crowd of innocent unsuspecting people. I’m not advocating a return to the wild west era with everyone armed, but I do suggest that many citizens be allowed a carry/conceal permit. The government can control the applications, regulate the permits, restrict the permit issuance to those who have been trained and belong to a range (for example, and like they do now by the way)… but allow people to defend themselves and others! Let’s hope none of us find out the true definition of helpless, while involved in one of these random and frequent incidents.

Right! So take away our only means of defending ourselves so that the ‘refugees’ can waltz right in and kill us? Not going to happen. Please bring back Prime Minister Harper. Trudeau is nothing but than a poor imitators of Obama who is only trying to destroy Canada.

The US of A got Hussein – we got the “white obama”

They are both very dangerous when they wield power with an agenda.

What they want – they will do – and you will go to jail if you fight it.

And THAT is exactly what the libs want – to put you out of commission – bet?

When a working man gets into power he knows what it is like out there.

When an entitled, rich, limp wristed, weak dicked, never had a job politician gets into power – his idealism should be your biggest fear.

Wait for it.

It will get far worse.

And yet the RCMP have still not released the final report on the High River gun fiasco.

It will never see the light of day – the RCMP are as crooked as the OPP – perhaps worse.

Wait for it – more doors will be kicked in – and more people who have never caused any problems will be made instant criminals.

All in the name of freedom and safety.

Liberal rule #1: Work against Canadian security, economically and in every other way possible. Not to do so is racist and, worse, conservative. Therefore, put your shoulders into it and make sure Canada is as soft a target as possible.

Liberal rule #2: When the brown stuff hits the fan, blame conservatives. Call them racist dinosaurs or whatever other ludicrous terminology comes to mind. This might seem illogical, but remember, Millennials will believe any liberal lie.

Liberal rule #3: Okay, not all Millennials will believe any liberal lie, but enough of them will that you can lie your heads off and get away with it nowadays, as long as the lies you tell are anti-Christian, anti-conservative and anti-reality.

Kelvin – my thoughts exactly! He will punish the west because he’s his father’s son, and he hates Canada. I wonder if, when nobody turns in their guns, if he will enact the war measures act and shake down Canadians?

After a Toronto girl was shot by a prohibited weapon which had been illegally obtained, a while back, CTV sought to interview one of their “experts” namely an ex-commissioner of the OPP to examine the issue. One of his claims was to connect legitimate gun owners to criminals by claiming that legal gun owners would purchase weapons for sale to gangsters. So this is the angle the Liberals are coming from. The National Firearms Association, an organization for law abiding Canadian gun owners claims that they’re ready to fight for us. Goodale’s from Saskatchewan so hopefully he’s less insane than his cohorts. But whatever, gun owners are to be set up for vilification which, if it were directed at any other group, would be considered bigotry.

Western separation anyone? Ya know that big blue area on the electoral map? Thats where Trudeau is going to dump the majority of the 25000 terrorist, oops check that I mean refugees. Hide your guns and stock up on ammo, I think they might come in handy.

I asked a couple of women that I work with, whatever possessed them to vote for this lunatic? These women are in managerial positions, and I would have thought that they would have known better, especially after the election of our resident communist in AB. Their response was that, there must be something more to the Mike Duffy scandal. I was gobsmacked, to say the least. My response was, what about the hundreds of billions of debt that, this lunatic and friends are going to rack up, and not to mention, the embarrassment of having a Canadian government that are yellow-bellied cowards, and don’t represent most Canadians?

In 1933, the Germans voted Hitler in. In 2008, the US voted in Obama.

Stupidity is a global syndrome. Even a man-child imbecile like Trudeau can garner a vote as evidenced on October 16-ish.

So the days of selling heaven are over. We are now on the road of four years of delivering hell.

Nice job liberal voters.

These Left Wing joker’s are more scared that a Canadian might shoot ‘Them’. Crime on the streets is just a secondary after thought.
Perhaps they have a point.

I immediately thought about Justin and friends while reading this:
“…there is a driving desire among weaker-minded people to seek control over other people in the name of arbitrary standards of safety as well as arbitrary standards of “civil” conformity. While such people proclaim publicly that they do what they do for the “greater good,” in reality they seek only to satiate a private lust for power.
In the darkest corners of their souls, many people have personal aspirations to attain godhood in their own little worlds. And if they cannot achieve such godhood outright on their own, then they will join a mob with similar aspirations so that they can at least feel omnipotent through vicarious tyranny…” Brandon Smith

Dan you hit it right in the crosshairs , it is about control and nothing else, rapists and murderers need a hug and gun owners will be punished. How about dumb control instead , Justin would be confiscated.

“Even lib firearms owners are worried.”
What exactly did they expect would happen?

It is true my neighbour is now worried – but then again he is an idiot – most who voted lib did not think it all through – Canada will be getting what it deserves after allowing this regime to get back into power.

Gun control has little to do with guns and everything to do with control.
This headlong dismantling of our gun rights, and other rights, that Justin and fellow travelers appear to be hell bent on perpetrating, will have the effect of almost forcing many Canadians to draw lines in the sand…many guns will be ‘grabbed’ and dissenters dealt with as a result of that set-up. Look how easy ‘High River’ and the ‘Paulson Gun-Grab’ were, and under a Conservative government.
Add 25,000 Islamist terrorists (in the first wave), and a crashing economy…anarchy, here we come!

Don’t give up your guns, you are going to need them! This is a war against our radical government, as much as it is against ISIS. They are siamese twins, and do not care about Canadians, they care about taking what isn’t theirs, because they don’t want you to have anything that they don’t approve of. My daughter just received her gun licence, so I told her that she had better shoot straight, and aim to kill!

You might want to re-consider signing the petition above as it’ll just alert the government who has guns.

Canadians will not be registering or turning in any guns this time around. Man-child Trudeau will be making millions of good Canadians into criminals once again. Once bitten twice shy as the saying goes. Of course Quebec will be getting their gun registry and I am sure the Liberals are working in secret behind closed doors right now on that just like they did with their draconian bill C-68. They will soon be springing that trap on Quebec gun owners . The bigoted and sexist and hateful Coalition for Gun control will be pushing hard for that. And I believe it was a Muslim who killed all those women in Montreal. His real name was Gamil Gharbi.
I personally know of a case here in my city where a 2nd world war veteran in his eighties who had a firearms license was turned in by a neighbour for possessing two unregistered rifles. He was stripped down to his underwear and thrown into a cold jail cell. The cops gave him a blanket after he complained about being cold. This is the kind of world the Liberals and their academic and media friends want. Of course the media never reported on this. I only found out while listening on my police band scanner. And now the cops have gone digital and encrypted that so we can no longer listen in. The new secret police. Gun owners should be able to resist legally as conscientious objectors but we know that will not be able to happen in our new Liberal totalitarian society.

Never let them get your guns, or know what you have for guns.

We can see how well this all worked out in Paris, can’t we? Just wait for the police to come and save you.

Here we go again, a fight that the left will never, ever win against us. I can even estimate now that the Liberals could very well lose at least their majority in Parliament come 2019 since any attempt to emulate Allan Rock will cost them the gains that they made in parts of the Maritimes and rural Ontario.

Erling said, "Shame on Harpers incremental approach. "

Harper got rid of the long gun registry and made it so the RCMP could not classify guns as illegal.

Harper was on the side of the law abiding gun owners. So, Erling, what do you mean by “incremental approach”?
