Liberals “scapegoat” lawful Canadian gun owners after Florida shooting

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is promising more rules for lawful Canadian gun owners in the next few years and is taking encouragement from the American calls for gun control after the recent school shooting in Florida.

Goodale told Ipolitics:

“we're working on the final detail right now. It's just about ready to go to the house. I hope to table it in Parliament within the next few weeks.”

Those previously promised reforms include requiring gun retailers to cooperate with police investigations and to keep sales and inventory records - like a registry.

The Liberals previously promised to “tighten up” rules around transport permits for restricted firearms and it would seem that accosting lawful firearms owners will be the only Liberal election promise they may actually keep.

But it’s really not about keeping promises. Since when do Liberals do that anyway? This is about changing the channel away from the Liberals disastrous trip to India and preying on our emotions about the Parkland shooting to do it.

It’s shameless and unfounded.

Watch my video to see why we should all be frightened by a government that takes its policy cues from poorly coached child activists in another country, rather than evidence.

Bob Rock.
I did no such thing. You didn’t answer the question. Why is a gun bad but a bat not since they both can kill?

“…which is why the vast majority of Canadians don’t own a gun…”

I see you are ignoring the stats again. It might be a majority but to call it vast is a lie. IF you don’t want to own a gun you don’t have to. But because you are afraid of them doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be able to won one. Or any one in particular just because it looks scary to the uninitiated.

The AR-15 is a relative pipsqueak. It has been round for a while. It was designed in 1956 but lefties are only wetting their pants now. It is not capable of anything that other rifles are not a capable of. Many in the know consider them inferior because the direct impingement system tends to make them unreliable. All you know is they are black and have weird looking things on them that you can’t identify. Those things must m be like Buck ROgers death rays or something.

Even the RCMP screwed up big time when hey tried to make on rifle prohibited even though it was identical to another rifle of the same manufacturer apart from one having a conventional wooden stock and the other having a plastic one. Apparently the ruling notion for classification is- Black is bad but wood is good.

That’s exactly right. What difference does it make – either way, you are going to have to face a judge if you kill someone with a bat or a gun, both of which you can have in your Canadian home.

Thanks for making my point for me.
commented 2018-03-05 11:31:27 -0500

Or you could move to America, since you seem to have more respect for that country than you do Canada. No one is trying to take your guns, which you don’t have a second amendment right to own anyway. Please stop with the fear mongering and hyperbole.

You sound like the typical extreme gun loving kook who jerks off to his guns and thinks there is going to be a knock on their door one day from the government demanding to take away your precious guns. That day will never come, even if certain guns are restricted. You still have countless guns that would still be legal to purchase.

So, Bob, if you kill someone with a baseball bat or a gun what difference does it make? What if you’re a 70 year old woman or a disabled person against a couple of mid twenties home invaders? What do you suggest she use?

“God made man and Colt made them equal.”
commented 2018-03-05 11:23:48 -0500
There are countless things that you can protect yourself with – you don’t need a gun, especially in Canada, which is why the vast majority of Canadians don’t own a gun, have ever touched a gun or even seen a real gun. I couldn’t possibly feel more safe where I live.

BOB ROCK commented 2018-03-05 01:53:59 -0500
Yes, that is mostly hunting and for sport as opposed to self defense and gun porn LIKE AMERICA.

Like British gun culture, Canadian gun culture is also largely represented by sport-shooting and hunting and less on self-defense
No duh! Since you can’t defend yourself in Canada with a gun it pretty much leaves sport shooting and hunting. Or did you not read the news articles I listed?

If a government- say one that likes basic dictatorships- decides to take away all of your rights what are you going to do about it? Did you watch the Innocents Betrayed video? That is why the Yanks have a second amendment. It isn’t about sport shooting. It is about keeping they tyrannical tendencies of government in check. Anyone who knows history and the human heart knows the value this.

BOB ROCK AR-15-platform rifles are among the most popular firearms being sold. … “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — meaning that when you pull or suppress the trigger the weapon fires multiple projectiles.
The ‘Military’ AR-15 is capable of automatic fire, in fact it has a selective fire switch which also allows it also shoot three (3) round bursts with the depression of the trigger in addition to full automatic rate of fire. The civilian version of the AR-15’s are only semi-automatic, not capable of full automatic rate of fire. BTW, AR does not stand for assault rifle, or automatic rifle, it stands for Armalite made by the Colt firearms company, to day many firearm companies produce AR style semi=automatic rifles for the civilian population. The AR platform is one of the most accurate shooting platforms and only resembles the Military version in looks – also called the ‘Black rifle’ or the ‘Scary looking gun’ by politicians and the MSM to push their own agendas.
ALL or most firearms were developed for the Military as is most popular calibers and adapted to and for civilian use.
Anti-gun activists and the MSM love to term firearms involved in fatal shootings as ‘Assault’ or ‘Military’ weapons, again to push forward the anti-gun agenda.
When a vehicle is used to mow down people and kill them no one calls it an ‘Assault’ or ‘Military’ truck or car.

If you know you are not living in the US and are aware of Canada’s decades long laws, then stop making a case for guns in Canada as if you are American. The second amendment does not apply to you in this country.
Any country that has no first and second amendments have a constitution that means noting. I, again, am well aware that we have no second amendment which is why we Canadians have to be more diligent to prevent the anti-gun haplophobes from irrationally taking our guns to accomplish nothing.

Bob Rock what would you do to protect yourself from a criminal assaulting you or breaking onto your home? Dial 911 and wait for the cops?
commented 2018-03-05 09:37:14 -0500
In the US, 11 teens per day die from texting while driving, that’s more than 3 times the teen gun deaths. Going by the Left’s logic, it’s time to ban cell phones for teens.

Interesting article on Breitbart by Anders Hargstrom: “Overwhelming Majority of Studies Find that Gun Control Policies Don’t Work”. Who woulda thunk it?
commented 2018-03-05 07:53:35 -0500
Since the topic is Goodale using a US based gun tragedy to push even more useless gun laws on Canadians …

What “gun-o-phones” seldom seem to address is why there is significantly less gun crime in the US states where there are significantly less useless gun laws and it is legal to carry with a permit.

Odd how more guns carried openly and legally results in less gun crime, isn’t it?

Love Dana Loesch’s new NRA ad over in the Rebels on Twitter section. The far left has over-reached in claiming that the Parkland shooting was the fault of the NRA when it was so clearly the fault of law enforcement. They will come to regret it. So will Ralph Goodale. Liberals have targeted firearms owners before and came to regret it. This time will be no different.
commented 2018-03-05 07:31:55 -0500
Bobby, the fact is that certain types of guns are restricted and prohibited simply because of the way they look. That is called taking someone’s rights away for no good reason.
Why does the government get away with it? They get away with it because poorly informed people like you and Andrew allow them to.
Yes, there are thousands of other firearms available, but for how long when people like you allow the government to ban firearms simply because they don’t like the look of them?
Do yourself a favour and take a firearms course.
commented 2018-03-05 03:16:01 -0500
Again, you don’t live in America and don’t have the second amendment to use as your argument. Leave Canada and move to America – it seems like you would be a lot happier there.

No one is being denied guns in Canada. As a Canadian, you should be well aware of the laws here. And if there are particular guns that become banned, that doesn’t negate the thousands of other guns that can still buy.

So nothing is being denied and there is no freedom taken away. Why can’t I use all drugs legally or go to a prostitute legally? The argument is the same. Why is the government taking away my freedom to do what I want to my own body or pay for a service that I want?

You can’t cry about freedom for only the things you care about.

We are not talking about freedom of speech, but having said that, what is it you want to say that is being silenced? Give me personal examples. Not obscure or rare anecdotal cases.

Ezra is a trouble maker and he happily invites it, which is why he has been sued countless times. He probably deserves to made an example of in the courts. We have hate speech laws in Canada. again a difference from America.

Of course gun control is working in Canada. We have very minimal gun violence here. Where are all the school shootings in Canada, movie theatre shootings, concert and event shootings? Gun deaths in Canada are once in a blue moon – not some weekly or even monthly occurrence like in America.
commented 2018-03-05 02:48:54 -0500
Bob Rock if Canada does not have a gun culture then what are you worried about, why deny people guns and freedom?
commented 2018-03-05 02:47:44 -0500
Bob Rock Hitler, Pol Pot, And pretty much every Communist takes away guns for a reason.
commented 2018-03-05 02:46:25 -0500
Bob Rock freedom of speech for one. And freedom to defend yourself. Please tell me what law Ezra broke to be prosecuted for 900 days?? His rights were trampled upon and you know it. M-103 is censorship.
commented 2018-03-05 02:17:37 -0500
What freedom is that exactly. You live in Canada. Not America. You don’t have a second amendment to defend your position.
commented 2018-03-05 02:15:37 -0500
And yet gun control is working in Canada. Where are our school shooting on a weekly basis? Why are not people being shot at Canadian movie theatres, concerts, events, etc. Could it be that Canada doesn’t have a gun culture?

You also need to consider different cultures. The people of Brazil are different than the people in North America.

The walking dead made a great argument against surrendering weapons n tonight’s episode whether they had intended to or not. The Scavengers were promised a pardon if they turned in their weapons and then were mowed down leaving one person as a witness. In real life we know that a number of governments employed this same tactic before taking many of the citizens other rights and killing masses of it’s own citizenry and in the light of the media and government trying to crack down on free speech I can appreciate the reluctance of anyone in forfeiting their right to defend themselves and put it in the trust of the very government who has tried to erase our voices.

Bob Rock you can bend over and have your freedom taken away , i will not.
commented 2018-03-05 02:10:06 -0500
If you think gun control is useless – let them ban the AR-15 and then you can say you told them so when the next mass shooting happens.
commented 2018-03-05 02:10:02 -0500
Bob Rock also the US is better than other countries with strict gun control , read the article.

Bob Rock Brazil has strict gun control , that is the point, IT DOES NOTHING!!!
