Oh BTW Andrew…even if there was a gun grab…that’s not the end of it….the partizans in Belarus and Lituania had a philosophy which worked very well…if you need a weapon….just find an enemy with a weapon and take it from him….I just a question of forming the resolve to do it…the SS feared the Lithuanian partizans more than they feared the SS..

Andrew…you are not expert in these matters…I am…do you know where the…umm…sand people get te materials for their IEDs?…from 155mm artillery shells that fail to go off (watch the movie Hurt Locker)…..why do they fail to go off (a failure rate of up to 40%) because they hit sand which doesn’t provide enough resistance to trip the detonator in the warhead……the dud rate is similar in boggy ground and snow….they also retrieve planted land mines…when conflict erupts….miltary weapons are plentiful. The T-72s in Grozny weren’t taken out with IEDs …they were taken out with wet blankets …thrown over the high tech periscopes and armoured glass view slits….they were wet with petrol and followed up with Molotov cocktail…..relatively small explosive devices (or even good quality wrenches) jambed in the drive gear pop the treads and immobilize the tank.

The documentation of supply chain you speak of started long after small arms were already abundant in Canada…there is no way they could all be rounded up just by paper work.

The RCMP had drones and infra red detection when they were chasing the cop killer in Moncton… had them chasing every squirrel and cat and the perp eluded it using a poncho made from wall insulation with a space blanket foil on one side….didn’t hear that in the news did you.

“It may have been an even match when both sides had nothing better than muskets. That is no longer the case.”

No it wasn’t an even match and if and when the Colonial Army fought the red coats on even terms they lost….the natives taught them how to fight dirty.

Are you suggesting surrender and capitulation Andrew? I’m too old and cranky to even consider that as an option.

The registry isn’t necessary to know how many weapons are in Canada. They know how many legal weapons are distributed since the supply chain is closely documented. The number of illegal weapons is harder to trace, but I imagine there are some pretty reasonable order-of-magnitude estimates.

I’ll just point out that the US has fought a number of guerrilla wars of late, which would most closely resemble a tyrannical government scenario. Their biggest problem overseas has been IEDs, not armed infantry, which is probably something on its way out. Very few people own or can reliably operate something that will stop a tank, and of course the whole drone thing is pretty one-sided too. Something as organized as ISIS can put up a resistance for years that way, but your American rebels aren’t that organized, and tend to be individualists that would struggle to establish that.

Of course, the government knows that. Letting them think they stand a chance keeps them quiet and well behaved, but they have Homeland Security which has a tool of intrusive surveillance, and know exactly who the drones are paying a visit to first if it comes to that. It may have been an even match when both sides had nothing better than muskets. That is no longer the case.

“The “militia against tyranny” principle is nice in theory, except that they don’t let you have the weapons you’d really need to hold off the modern military.”

Actually ANDREW/Andrea (and I know this from experience) anyone with an AR-15 has a clear advantage over anyone with an AK-47 especially at ranges over 200 yards…all the way out to 500 yards in fact ….you can buy a IWI TAVOR bullpup that is the envy of most of the world’s militaries.

The Russians learned in the battle of Grosny in Chechnia that the T-72 is no match for a militia that know what they are doing and turned their next generation tank (the T-14) into a robotic vehicule with panic room crew compartment from those lessons learned.

ANDREW…watch the movie “WIND RIVER” and see what a guy armed with a 45-70 lever action (patented in 1895) and camo grear you can buy at Cabellas does to a whole squad of guys armed with 9mm Glocks M-16s and flack jackets.

If you have never owned guns…then just admit that you don’t really know that much about them.
commented 2019-05-17 19:46:03 -0400
Andrew in order to really round out your stats on this subject why don’t you post the stats for “MOLON LABBE” refusal to comply….like in Quebec for example…they retained an obligation for long gun registry….I have been told through my grapevine that the level of compliance is less than 20%…the attitude being that if the rest of Canada doesn’t have to then they’re not going to.

The long gun registry when it was law had less than a 40% rate of compliance….people just stashed grandad’s shotgun and Lee Enfield up in the rafters and shut up about it.

Jacaranda Hijab’s gun grab in New Zealand had fewer than 200 voluntary compliances the last I heard…

ANDREW (or Andrea)….I would be fine with a law that prohibited Liberals from owning fire arms….at this point in my life I am convinced that they cannot be trusted with them.

Andy, I do not know where you get your facts from.. Clearly, neither do you.. It’s the other way around.. The vast majority of Canadians own Gun”

No, they don’t. There are a few million guns in Canada. Even in the US there are more unarmed households than armed ones, and they have five times as many weapons per capita than we do.

It’s really not an issue.

I’ve lived in Winnipeg, Regina, and Abbotsford all cities that rank highly on the crime list, and Toronto, which doesn’t. I’ve never once felt the urge to arm myself, nor have I been the victim of crime for it.

The “militia against tyranny” principle is nice in theory, except that they don’t let you have the weapons you’d really need to hold off the modern military.

Please Robert Sloane?… I’m “Andy” and have been since my Ryerson Journalism student days in the 60s… You are rebutting “Andrew Stephenson”, aka “Ms. Stephenson”, or better yet “Missy Stephenson”… SHE’s a woman; fake claimant to having a PhD, and regular troll on the Rebel… OK?…
commented 2019-05-16 19:55:13 -0400
Dan, your comment is dead on… But just in case, stash your guns… Oh hell, who am I kidding? It’s been going on for Generations.. Stash your guns and your ammo… Ya just never know when you might need them…
commented 2019-05-16 19:43:07 -0400
Andy, I do not know where you get your facts from.. Clearly, neither do you.. It’s the other way around.. The vast majority of Canadians own Guns.. Why? Well, it’s to protect themselves from people like you… I could say the truth hurts, but in your case you are oblivious to the truth.. Canadians own many more Guns than your “connections/informants” state… Do you live in the Country? On a Farm? Do you live in the City? Are you an anti-gun Liberal? All important questions…. Regardless, there are likely 100-1,000 times more guns in Canada then you could ever imagine. And there’s a reason for that.. Protection from people like you, and Government Control.. This, is Canada… It was built on Hunting for our food, as well as protection from Human Predators. The RCMP improved that situation.. In time you will have a choice, but only one of two. You can choose to live off the Land, and look after your Friends and Family… Or, you could always live in the Jane/Finch, or Regent Park area of Toronto.. In fact, every large City in Canada has a Jane/Finch area. The highest areas of Major Crime, are all west of Ontario… Go West… The East will look after itself.. We have guns, and you have no idea how many, nor where they are…:)

Andrew Stephenson if they are not affected then why do they care if others have one? And maybe some of them like freedom and self defense. And how about childless Liberals stay out of parental issues then , or is that different?

Junior thinks that by persecuting lawful firearms owners, he will gain votes this October. Obviously he learned nothing from the gun registry debacle. There are two million registered firearms owners in Canada and many will vote on this one issue. On the other hand support for Liberal style gun control is tepid at best. Maybe this time the Liberals will learn their lesson, but then they just can’t help themselves, they are Liberals after all.

Michelle Rempel is a day late and a dollar short. The PPC has a sensible gun policy.
commented 2019-05-16 15:55:05 -0400
I don’t think they’re listening at this point…

But there is just one thing…the state has to actually TAKE our guns!
Without saying which camp I’m in…I know there are an awful lot of tax-paying, law-abiding, responsible firearms owners out there that WILL NOT give up their firearms…which means the state’s jackbooted, brown-shirted thug hirelings will have to murder those tax-paying, law-abiding responsible firearms owners…before they can steal their guns.
Even with the paid whores and liars in the FNMP (Fake News Media Party) covering it up…and the shut-down of THEREBEL et al, it will be bad press!
There’s only one conclusion I can draw from this – and SGR’s story on LPC office renos, etc – the fascist globalists running the LPC have every intention of staying on in power – just like the Obama-Clinton cabal did.
Boy, if ever we needed a ‘Donald Trump’ in Canada…
The very simple fact of it is, even discussing a gun grab – let alone planning one – makes them all traitors and criminals!

Using any reference to the term ‘gun-violence’ helps the gun-grabbers.
Since an inanimate object cannot do anything of its own accord, simple logic dictates that the state target the true cause – the PERSON, who wields whatever inanimate object as a weapon!

Why are we supporting Mitchell Rempel.
Did you not know she supports the ‘Morgane Oger Foundation’(MOF). Here are some facts about them.
MOF successfully had the City of Vancouver remove funding from the “Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter”, because the MOF claimed they did not help Trannies.
They also supported this sickness. Search …
“Vancouver courts take parental rights away over sexual orientation”
If you mention this on Mitchell Rempel’s social media it is shadow banned and according to some ppl, her office will hang up on you for mentioning it.
Does the Rebel not know, or are you moraly bankrupt.

The more immigration from shit hole countries the more gun violence
But the Liberals and MSM media would never look at the obvious.
-———————————————————————————————————————————————-That’s it in a nut shell, and more people are getting firearms certification everyday because of it. We aren’t safe in our own country anymore, and they want us to give up our guns, yeah right. The government wants us unarmed so they can run roughshod over the rest of our rights and freedoms. Its all a part of the prep work for their authoritarian dystopian dream.
Its going to be a big problem ripping firearms out of legal owners hands. A really big problem.

More than any time in our history we need a 1st and 2nd amendment fundamental right.
1 – The right to Free Speech.
2 – The right to bears arms to protect ourselves from a tyrannical federal government.
commented 2019-05-16 11:03:16 -0400
Apparently about 22% of Canadian households own weapons.

Thus, 78% do not.

This is not a wedge issue. The vast majority are unaffected.

Once in power, CPC should loosen regulations on LEGAL firearms, except for background checks. And, as you said, increase penalties for ILLEGAL use and possession of firearms.
Conceal/carry should be allowed (but not open carry).
Firing at intruders should not be a crime (subject to investigation and court decision, if applicable).

So the gun control laws we have that only harass the law abiding don’t work, eh? Then let’s double down and introduce more citizen harassment! If the law that is ineffective in solving the problem let’s do more of the same and expect different results.

This is yet another example of the Three Pillars of Leftiedom:
1. Lefties never learn from their mistakes.
2. they never learn form the mistakes of others.
3. they refuse to exercise discernment.

It is so much easier for the Liberals to go for the low hanging fruit. Much easier than actually confronting criminals. Whether or not it is effective is of no concern. They want to impress the low information and willfully blind voters.

These truly elected and cynical scum are quite willing to take away our legally owned and lawfully used property to buy a few votes to pull their backsides out of the fire. Of course what not? They are also willing to fill the country with detritus of the world in order to destroy our culture and traditions. There is nothing so low that Trudeau and minions wouldn’t stoop to it.

We must like the crime. We keep voting Liberal.
