Legal gun owners in RCMP’s crosshairs -- with CBC's help

Brian LilleyArchive

“The Mounties always get their man” the old saying goes, and for the gun grabbers in the Mounties, their new man is Justin Trudeau.

During the election, the Liberals promised to give unelected, unaccountable police, not politicians, the power to determine which firearms are allowed for public use in Canada.

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.

It’s important that gun owners support organizations like the National Firearms Association and the Canadian Sport Shooters Association. Gun owners should also write to people in government like Goodale and express their positions against the Liberal policy. Unfortunately sport shooting is not politically correct in this once fair Dominion. I was actively shooting long before Junior was in sh*tty three cornered nappies and now he’s calling the tunes. It’s sickening. Fortunately shooters are somewhat better organized than they were in the 90s but it’s going to be a very, very hard fight to keep what we have. I’m disappointed in the direction this county’s headed and sometimes I think that the West should sever it’s ties to “Upper Canada” and the east like a cancerous tumour might be excised to restore vigour to an ailing body.

The RCMP are behaving like paranoid freaks there is no constitutionally required “demonstrable justification” for restricting a right which has not been abused – this pushes the envelope of public cooperation-it is a belligerent agenda of bureaucratic oppression and it will not end well.

It was probably the confiscation of all the guns in High River that prompted this action. What with all the illegal modified firearms they found while busting down doors of peoples homes? All for the sake of safety. (everyone had been evacuated)

In all my years I have never seen where a leader endorses so many ideas based on factless research. Ideas that swung voters during the recent election. The one up auctioning of the 25000 refugees is a clear example.
It’s not just the leadership, It speaks volumes to the lack of insight, lack of vision, lack of political interest, lack of common sense and disrespectful attitude towards consequences that’s corroded the minds of the new occupy generation. And as long as this exists, weak leadership like Trudeau and Company will play on it with the assistance of his favorite broadcaster, the CBC. They’ll keep producing short TV episodes like the Pearson Airport Refugee Arrival, The recent Vancouver Hate Crime Episode and many more. Why? Because many voters today actually believe it. For socialists he’s their Super Hero until a new movie comes into town.

And so it continues….the rights of many Canadians are slowly being eroded by the present government. Look for the hidden agenda of the RCMP and of the Libbies. I am sure you will discover one. The only one fear-mongering here is the mainstream media!

Gun owning law abiding citizens present absolutely no threat to other law abiding citizens… gun free zones are targets for criminals and other sub humans who wish to do harm on innocent people Because they know there is nobody there to stop them and the authorities usually only arrive after the fact to take bodies away and to take statements from survivors.
I don’t think there was ever a time in history where murderers and thieves bothered to take the time to obtain a gun permit before going on their murderous rampages.. unarmed citizens are targets and resources for the criminal element who would do them wrong. The statistics are out there for every country who practices gun control… Either the crime rate goes straight up and through the roof because only the criminals have guns or the country evolves into a armed dictatorship who through violence and aggression subvert the people… the lessons of gun control should be represented by cold hard facts that speak for themselves in a positive light and not based on knee-jerk reactions or crying emotions that have no place in objective and critical thinking.
If gun control worked then police would not ever need to be armed.. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens does not make us safer and does not take guns away from criminals or do anything to help us it only leaves us defenseless to protect ourselves from a threatening element.
Switzerland has an automatic military style tactical rifle Tucked away with ammunition in almost each and every household… Nobody bothers to mention that it has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world.. And they as law abiding gun owners don’t run around shooting each other up.

@lad Reme “Justin just wants to make sure his new Muslim friend are protected against the nasty Canadian White Trash”

Yes, Trudeau despises the true Canadian that doesn’t agree with his stupidity. It is sad and well pretty much laughable to watch the sheeple at the trough bowing to their idol….baaaaaaa!

I did a facebook blog about this (I’m shocked its still posted actually) and I Compared this latest RCMP targeting of law-abiding gun owners and semi-automatics to sports cars – The RCMP are essentially trying to ban semi-automatic rifles because they feel “THEY MIGHT” be converted to full-auto opertion. I pointed out as Brian Lillly Did, such a conversion would already be illegal and law-abiding gun owners do not partake in such illegal activities. Furthermore, Any such conversion would usually require full-auto “Parts” changes, ordering such parts online (even if you could find any) would constitute another “Illegal offence” and any such parts would be stopped in transit by customs anyway and then the individual would promptly recieve a visit by either local police or RCMP. Anyways. I find this pathetic and grossly targeted injustice against law-ful gun owners to be very typical of the type of harrassment lawful gun owners have recieved over the years at the hands of RCMP Brass and their obviously anti-gun firearms lab tech.

Creating gun bans based on something someone “MAY DO” (although as Brian pointed out- extremely unlikely (your chances of winning the powerball lottery are higher than any lawful gun owner converting a semi to full auto in Canada) is plainly Rediculous and unconstitutional in nature . Seriously now, Depriving the Rights of others to possess and enjoy their Private property (firearms) simply because someone else may abuse that same type of firearm is comparable to banning all alcohol or banning automobiles because of lives taken by drunk drivers or because someone “just may” install a powerful nitrous oxide kit in their sports car . So does that mean all sports car enthusiasts must suffer and pay the consequences for one individuals illegal actions ?

…. Using the same Liberal/RCMP logic, – “NOBODY NEEDS” a powerful automobile capable of speeds of 180 plus MPH when legal speed limits prohibit such speeds and converting an auto to go even faster by installing a Nitrous oxide kit would push those speed capabilities to well over 200 MPH . In most Provinces I believe such conversion kits of Nitrous oxide are already illegal to run in your car ….but not illegal to sell as of yet . But can you see the point I’m trying to make here ? …. Targeting lawful owners of Private property simply because someone may use something in an illegal manner is a very scary slippery slope leading to authoritorianism and Canadians (especially the Supreme Court of Canada) should be speaking out against this type of behavior by anybody -especially police agencies like the RCMP who are entrusted to simply enforce the laws -Not make the laws….when police are allowed to make and enforce laws….then freedom in this country is in huge trouble folks. Such activity reminds me of Communist China where groups or individuals can simply be targeted for random harrassment.

The government targeting me, for doing absolutely nothing other than owning a firearm, infuriates me greatly. This is the kind of tactic a socialist government partakes in when they are getting ready to implement extreme measures that will strip away rights and property of the people. It has happened before, and is now happening in Canada. Thanks to all those idiots who voted for the Trudeau Liberals. This is NOT the Canada that I grew up in, and not the country that I wore the uniform and swore to protect any more.

Don’t be fooled it is the top 1% Elite making all their Puppets in Government enforce strict Gun Control so when the people decide they have had enough it will be MUCH easier for the Corrupt Governments everywhere to start slaughtering millions of their own people to restore order? People of Western Worlds better wake up in a Hurry. Why to you think Obama is pushing so hard for gun control right now? I promise you it isn’t because of a few mass shootings! He will be in for quite a surprise though if he the American people will ever hand over there weapons to him. I am quite certain there are large cache’s of weapons being buried in American backyards everywhere at this very moment..!!

The last time I guided in Banff, at the end of our two day orientation to get our mandatory horse guide’s licence for Banff National Park, the instructor added a couple of miscellaneous items, the last one was: ‘Oh and by the way, if you’re in town after work or there’s something that’s happening here (at the stables), or anywhere else, we’re on the the cop’s side…everybody OK with that?’ There was no dissension…it’s like that with that kind of crew.
That was in ‘96. Considering what the RCMP politicians, including Commissioner Paulson have been responsible for since then – well I for one would have to reconsider that…and that really sucks! WTF!
And to Justin and your jack-booted thug hirelings, whomever they may be – from Sparta to Texas to today, to reiterate a man’s sentiment – MOLON LABE!

Good reporting Brian
Police forces across Canada are out of control. They are bullies in uniform with a culture of entitlement and are assumed untouchable and outside the law. Just look at some of the characters representing the police. If seen in the dark they would look .like the criminals they are legislated to protect us from. Police forces have to be accountable. Which in many cases they are not. They act like they are a para-military force. In many cases not well educated they have a mentality in many cases like the good old " Gunslinger" , intimidate, lie, coerce, and subvert the truth by force and/or subterfuge . It almost seems that the " Force " can only attract candidates that can’t make it in the real world.Bottom line is that unfortunately they are not an agent of the Government that you can trust.

Get rid of Paulson! He has a political agenda and does not care two fiddles for Canadian citizens. I bet he jumped for joy and had a party when the Lieberals won the election, he knew then that they would give him all the power he so dearly desires. This guy is a disgrace to police all over Canada.
‘To SERVE AND PROTECT’ went by the wayside years ago, now its all about power. Why else would they do this? Even grade school kids will tell you that the bad guys have the guns and kill people. But I guess all the bad guys will now leave Canada because they cant convert their semi-autos to full auto, what a farce the once proud RCMP has become.
commented 2016-01-15 19:47:18 -0500
What about all the stolen weapons that are cut down to make them easier to conceal? Should they all be banned to prevent that from happening? I wouldn’t hunt big game with a semi-automatic rifle, because if I can’t hit him with the first shot, he deserves to get away, but that’s just my opinion.

When I was in school and that is a great number of years ago we were taught that the Rcmp was not a formal extension of the elected government put there in place to make sure no Tyrants developed as a result of an over zealous political faction..
Even at a very young age I found that hard to believe because we were already being educated about the KGB.

Gosh, my concern is that the poor, overworked RCMP will get so busy with this that they will continue to be unable to make a dent in the illegal handguns and full autos that are coming in via the Reserves along the US/Canada border. Did I mention the word continue?

Dear Diary;
Well, it never seems to rain but it pours. I’ve just finished giving silly Willie a tutorial on how to kinda tell the truth about the economy and still deceive my naïve and gullible zombies (I told him that I’d heard that the word gullible doesn’t appear in any dictionary, and off he scurried to find out for me if that was true).
Anyway, McCallum’s people are busy scouring a desert somewhere looking for some gays and non-Christians to shanghai them into coming to Canada. He won’t admit it, but he’s having a hard time finding enough of them to get my numbers up. I wonder if I know anyone who might know how to get gays to come?
But today I have a bigger problem. Some people might remember that legalizing marie-you-ee-jew-anna (I don’t know where my dictionary went, but thank goodness for a little bit of post-secondary education at an institution of higher learning or I’d never have known how to spell that) was one of the ten or twenty things that would be the first thing I’d do when elected as Dear Leader. But now it turns out that I’ll have to break some international treaties to achieve that. Oh well, I guess no one will care if I break two or three treaties, even although one of them is with my beloved United Nations, but why does everything not turn out to be as easy as I thought it would be? Gerald, I need a hug.

Yep, when I was an auxiliary I rode with a Torontonian who wanted all firearms out of the hands of us lower types. Mind you, I also rode with those I learned to trust, asking me about about hunting rifles and guns. Sad to say, I found the former more predominant than the latter in attitude in all things political, so I quit. I am trying to picture the current “mounties” listening to the great Blood Chief, Jerry Potts, who saved their bacon in 1874 and 1885.
