“The Mounties always get their man” the old saying goes, and for the gun grabbers in the Mounties, their new man is Justin Trudeau.
That made the Mounties happy because they don’t like civilians owning guns and seem to do all they can to thwart law abiding gun owners.
Their latest move, detailed in a glowing CBC story, is to make a list of guns that should be banned or reclassified.
They want to change the classification of certain semi-automatic firearms which they argue could be modified to become almost like an automatic rifle. Automatic rifles are already effectively banned for civilian use. I’ve fired them during military training. They’re fun but aren’t what hunters and target shooters use.
It’s also illegal to convert a semi-automatic to an automatic in Canada. Do that and you’ll go to jail.
This is a solution in search of a problem.
That may be why the CBC report references cases that happened nearly 25 years apart, the first from nearly 25 years ago.
The Mounties claim (and CBC dutifully reports) that the concern over rifles being altered is due to new technology, a new style of gun and the flood of para-military like weapons coming into Canada but I provide some of the details CBC neglects to report that help show this isn’t about public safety, but is about power and is just a gun grab by the Mounties.
They’re targeting these popular rifles in time for their new political masters to hand power over to them so can get vaguely defined assault weapons off our streets.
Instead of dealing with criminals and gangsters who shoot each other with illegal guns, the Liberals and RCMP will do what’s easy; target law abiding gun owners while the media cheers and avoids asking tough questions.

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