Gun registry or not? What the Throne Speech said (or didn’t say) about gun ownership

Brian LilleyArchive

During the election, the Liberals promised to take action to get handguns and assault weapons off the street. 

That promise sort of made it into the Throne Speech though the reference was vague and didn’t seem to mean much.

We know from Quebec’s Interim Public Security Minister Pierre Moreau, that there will be a gun registry in Quebec but nothing from the federal Liberals about a federal gun registry.

They did talk about handguns and assault rifles but rational people understand that when crimes are committed with these types of weapons, they’re usually committed by criminals who don’t register their weapons.

So what did the Throne Speech tell us about law-abiding gun owners who use those types of guns for perfectly legal past-times?

The short answer is, nothing, because the Liberals still haven’t told us.

We’ll continue to cover this issue, taking care to use proper terminology. We’ll keep searching for clarity from the Liberals and report back to you. And we’ll do it without the anti-gun bias you get from the media party.

If you are really a freedom loving citizen, willing to fight for your God given right to protect your family and home, I suggest you pickle one of your guns along with ammunition and bury it in a wall somewhere; accessible if needed in the future.

That is being done by many as we read and write here.

Liberals – never to be trusted.

Definition of Liberal?

Removal of freedoms in the name of public safety – which is in reality – control of those who are already law abiding citizens.

Don’t under any circumstances hand in your guns. This falsely elected government will attempt to crush the people, and bring in terrorists to assist them on Canadian soil. This clueless simpleton is a puppet to his evil task masters. These evil bastards think that they will own Canada, but it will never happen. The fight will be bloody, and it will be to the end, due to a government that does not govern for the people, but for themselves.

Death by a thousand cuts; it’s the Liberal way. It starts by reclassifying as “restricted” certain ordinary hunting guns – first it will be semi-auto rifles, then semi-auto shotguns, then any shotguns/rifles that can hold more than 3 rounds, etc.

You can also expect a united assault: their provincial cronies will fall in line and impose parallel restrictions on hunting with certain types of guns. Hunters and gun owners will look to their leadership for help, and there will be some “protest” from the hunters’ associations and firearms organizations, but only of the most acceptable kind. There will certainly be no loud, angry demonstrations that would gather media attention. And there will be nothing from the Conservatives except posturing.

So unless a miracle happens and the grassroots of the gun-owning community rises up, I’m predicting that Canada’s gun cabinets are either going to be (a) empty, or (b) holding a lot of newly-illegal guns in the not too distant future.

My semiautomatic “assault” rifles are already off the streets and secured in a locked gun safe. What more do the lunatic libs/progs want?

Once again we have moved from a government that understands that gun owners are not criminals, and enacted laws that dealt directly with criminals, and criminal activity. They enacted laws that would deport and strip citizenship of those who came here and vowed to kill us all. Those people are terrorists, and the gun owners in stark contrast are patriots. We have moved from that type of government, now to a government that directly targets gun owners, patriots, law abiding family people. Creating a new class of criminal once again, where merely being a gun owner, now makes you a criminal in waiting. At least in the eyes of the new government. Further in contrast to the previous government, this one will treat terrorists, murderers, and criminals, as equals and with an inviting and gentle manner. They will bring in to this country tens of thousands of individuals, where they know conclusively that upwards of 20% wish to kill and do harm to Canadians and to this country.

This is now the state of this country, and it is truly a dark and evil time for Canada.

Disarm Canadians but by all means arm Islamists.

Trudeau’s perfect world. After all, it was the West that created Islamists, not the other way around.

“Assault weapons off our streets” have these idiots been watching news feeds off Al Jazeera and thinking its Toronto? As far as I knew the crime rate (violent and other) was going down. All this is, is hysteria, and hype to boost their own egos. This will turn into a (gun) rights, (rights) gun grab that will set our freedoms back at least 100 years. All those men that died to fight against tyranny and colossal bullies of Nazi Germany, like the liberals of new, are truly forgotten now. Congratulations Canada you voted yourselves in a stuttering, repeating, clueless, self entitled RETARD. If we make it through the next 4 years it will take a minimum of 15 years to get back to where we are now, if you don’t believe in god, start now, will we all soon need his help desperately.

I don’t think Turdo liberals & their gun grabbing cronies will ban all handguns & semi-autos (aka ‘assault weapons’ in liberal parlance) outright. They will start with dividing the gun-owner community, long-guns (hunting guns) vs. handguns & semi-autos. First step; making handguns & semi-auto ownership more restrictive, like storing your handguns at police stations when not in use at an authorized shooting range, while bragging about NOT touching the hunting guns of common Canadians. Second will be banning some calibers deemed too dangerous in the hands of civilian population. Third; restrictions on quantity of ammo you can buy & store. When all that has been taken care of finally will come the long-guns on the chopping board. It’ll take them some time (few years, perhaps) but it’ll be done if the gun-owner community stays divided and don’t stand united to confront this real threat.

On Dec. 6th, the Liberals and their feminist male hating misandry friends will once again be celebrating the " Montreal Massacre". That attack was carried out by a maniac who`s father was a Muslim from Algeria. It appears now that this was the first Islamic terrorist attack in Canada and that the killer was enforcing Sharia law. He told all the men they could leave and then told all the women that they were taking jobs from men and that they would have to pay for that with their lives. Then he killed them all. The Liberal left wing media hid the fact that the killer was either a Muslim or influenced by Islam.
Afterwards, the femi Nazis held this up as a typical example of male on female domestic violence and claimed this was normal behavior for Canadian men, especially gun owners. Then Chretien and his hippy henchman Alan Rock then proclaimed they would stop this kind of thing from happening by creating the federal gun control act. Chretien the tyrant then told all Liberal MP`s that if they did not vote for it, they would be fired. Then he nastily proclaimed that anyone who did not register their guns would face up to ten years in prison. Many types of guns were banned and others that were in museums were made inoperable. The purge begin. Wendy Cukier and the coalition for gun control were ecstatic and after constitutional challenges by some provinces, all the partisan Liberal supreme court judges squashed that and approved the gun control act on the grounds it was for public safety. Of course they won`t do that for motor vehicles even though more people die that way.
Many tens of thousands of gun owners did not register their guns and so became instant criminals, even though there were no victims. They had to live in fear of discovery. Neighbours turned in neighbours who did not register themselves or their guns. And those that did register faced onerous scrutiny and lived in fear that the police would show up like jackbooted thugs in the night to confiscate their guns. And that the lists of registered guns would fall into the wrong hands.
Police officers were given a false sense of security and many realized that they could never assume that there were no guns at a residence. And police officers who attended calls where there were registered guns were ready to shoot to kill. Gun owners had to be very cautious and still do to this day with firearms licensing.
So if the Trudeau Liberals try to register guns again, they will have a real fight once more on their hands and this time there will be massive non compliance.
PM Harper did a courageous and justified thing when he got rid of the gun registry. Thank you Mr. Harper and the Conservatives.

So Rebel media in the month or more Trudeau has been the P.M. how many times have you spoken to him on a one on one basis? Just curious.

@ Guy Fraser – When I read the comments from the lefties on this site and others, the comments are almost always full of anger and rage, so you “fun facts” does not surprise me. As a whole, the lefties seem to harbor a lot more anger and rage than the right.
commented 2015-12-05 22:15:46 -0500
I can’t recall ever seeing anyone other than Police with Hand Guns and Assault Rifles “on the streets”. Have seen at least half a dozen people stabbed, two this year and myself over 30 years ago. I guess Red Neck Alberta must be safer than Urban Toronto due to lower psychopathic lefty nuts.
Fun facts : In USA most Gun Violence is : Black Democrat on Black Democrat, White Democrat on White Democrat, both together constitute the Majority of Gun Violence and President Ronald Reagan Was shot by a White Democrat. Even in Canada you are more likely to get shot by a Left voting person than a Right wing person. Eco-Bomber Weibo Ludwig, the Ecole Technique shooter and all Canadian Islamic Terrorists were not right wing based on their statements.

One of the first acts of any new or aspiring dictatorship is to disarm the populace so as to remove any chance of a popular uprising that could oust a new tyrant from power. What was it Justin said about admiring dictatorship?
commented 2015-12-05 21:28:38 -0500
If I am not mistaken, I think Justin has already stated that he will turn the decision to restrict firearms back over to the RCMP, something Harper took away from them when they reclassified some weapons a year or two ago.

Dan, I really don’t think Justin is listening.

As it is becoming increasingly clear all citizens of western democracies are under threat of attack but that our governments have instructed our police to disarm, blame, arrest and wrongly prosecute the protesters, conscientious objectors and victims of anti-democracy crimes, it may be time for us to give up petitioning our governments, police and Crown justice agents to lawfully apply legislation and instead to quietly and without any further consultation with official authority, arm and ready ourselves to self defend.

I love this here bluesy version of an all-time favourite classic:

There are no legally owned Handguns or assault weapons “on the street” – it has never been legal to “carry” handguns or own an Assault weapon. Select fire military styled firearms have been prohibited for over 3 decades – this is pure fear mongering – when I hear this come from opportunist politicians and police policy makers It always precedes some draconian ban or confiscation regime through reclassification of commonly used sporting arms – a cruel placebo for pubic fear of crime and terrorism – none of which has any connection to the lawful use/ownership of firearms in the shooting sports .

However, this time it will be different. Law abiding firearms owners are done with being scape-goated for public safety issues which result from failed policing and justice policies. Attempts to ban, confiscate and unjustly restrict lawfully owned firearms will be met with wide spread non compliance. Honest firearms owners have been bullied and abused too long, and a backlash will certainly ensue if a second wave of abusive federal bullying commences.

If the Liberals bring in a complete ban and disarmament of Canadians we will launch a class action suite in the BILLIONS.

These gun-grabbin’ national socialists (socialists at a federal level) are pretty ignorant…about guns. Like RCMP Commissioner Paulson illegally and arbitrarily banning certain legal semi-auto rifles because they ‘look’ dangerous…
These dangerous ignoramuses think my wooden stocked Ruger 10/.22 carbine is an assault rifle…
So Justin, if you’re wondering why so many people are so up in arms about the loss of our wealth and the loss of our rights and the loss of our sovereignty recently, that you may have noticed in the Comments sections of the Media Party (where they are usually censored), or the rumblings deep in the heart of Alberta, it’s because there are those of us who recognize it has become time to fight back…
And if you think you are going to force Canadians to accept this Islamic invasion and take our guns away…you better think again funny-bunny!

Why do I believe there are going to be tens of thousands of over night criminals created – again!


They hate anyone who owns a firearm.

I guess the ghost gun assembly line is already in full gear – fear a government that wants to take things from you.

And fear the lefty neighbour who would turn you in – in a heart beat!

They are the same people who want to make you pay – in more ways than one.

Chose your friends wisely and watch your words in public.

Warrantless search will rear its ugly head again – mark my words.

Anyone saying they do not own a firearm and therefore they have nothing to fear is a fool.

All I have to do is make an anonymous call and the swat team will crash your door – hope you have your illegal xxxx well hidden – because you will go down -all because of your neighbour.

Yeah this DID happen – more often than most realize – and there are records of it happening in the past under past lib governments.

Liberals – what that word really means is this – “Loss of freedoms and rights”.
