I’ve been sounding the alarm for a while that with a friendly Liberal government in Ottawa, the gun grabbers will be on the march soon.
Justin Trudeau has said he wants more gun control - he wants hand guns and assault weapons off our streets though I’m not aware of this being an out of control problem.
The gun crime problem we do have in this country is primarily with criminals and gangs shooting up neighbourhoods. They also happen to be the kind of people who don’t and won’t register their guns.
Yes, there are more restricted handguns in Canada yet gun crimes have been going down.
Bill Blair (former Chief of Toronto Police and now a Liberal MP) said when the long gun registry was abolished, there would be “blood in the streets”. Except, there wasn’t.
Sadly, hard facts aren’t going to be what drives this policy decision but rather, worldview. This is all about taking guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens because, well, the government doesn’t trust the average citizen.
Elections have consequences and the result of the last election is that this new government thinks you shouldn’t have guns and it seems clear that soon they’ll be acting on enforcing that soon.
