Montreal joins Toronto in call for handgun ban as licensed firearms ownership surges in Canada (Guest: Tony Bernardo)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Montreal has joined the chorus of Toronto gun grabbers looking to strip handguns away from the law abiding as a means to deal with the gang violence and illegal guns plaguing many of Canada’s urban areas.

Never in recent history, have Canadian gun owners been more demonized, scapegoated and held accountable for the actions of those not within the ranks of the lawful and licensed.

But the good news is there have never been more of us.

For the twenty-first consecutive quarter, the number of licensed firearms owners has grown, adding 60,000 new PAL holders between January and June.

At 2.169 million licensees, there are now 500,000 more gun licence holders in Canada than play organized hockey!

Is this the Obama effect — an act of political rebellion against the powers that threaten their gun rights? Or are people just waking up to how fun shooting is?

I ask an expert those questions, and more.

Tony Bernardo of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association joins me tonight to discuss gun ownership stats, his predictions for gun rights at the upcoming Conservative convention in Halifax and what he thinks the Liberals really mean to do about our handguns.

Gun control??? Only criminals need to be controlled.

“This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”

Interesting comment from Rush Limbaugh today . The left is trying to adopt what is called corporate gun control whereby banks and financial institutions will deny loans ,credit cards and services to gun owners .
These people are zealots and will never give up .
Yes ,that’s what’s happening in America . In Canada we have absolutely no protection from the caprice of our government .They don’t need private sector assistance in their effort to seize every weapon in the country.
This is what happens when fools elect fools.

John Tory is a colossal jackass. Liberals create soft on crime hug-a-thug policies & then expect us to believe that gun control is the answer to violent crime.

Just watch these mayors’ eyes when, in response to their espousing about gun control, you say just one word: Chicago.

I sure hope all the criminals, nut jobs, Muslim terrorists, the mob, illegal gun runners,1% ers and the corrupt politicians adhere to any and all Canadian gun laws.

The corrupt Lieberals want to strip law abiding citizens of their weapons because it’s easier to control an unarmed population. Just look it up in “The Dictator’s Playbook”.

Gonna be funny seeing the deflection and lies spewing from the left and the media when this does nothing to curb violence or murder.

GOOD! Those cities vote Liberal , let them be defenseless from Justins newcomers. Apologies to the sensible people in those cities, but there is little i can do about it anyways.

Ah yes Karen and Doug Geil… There’s the “nut” of it.. It’s one set of laws for us peons and something else for the dimpled bum politicians… I do wish that Tory was just for once put to the wall to explain why his dimpled bum is more precious than the rest of us “mortals”?… What? His mummie told him it was more “dimpled” than the other kids???

so does this mean Montreal and Toronto municipal politicians are going to forego any armed police protective details?

Good episode, Sheila. Felt better after hearing Tony’s take on things. I was at the CSSA AGM which was held in Saskatoon in 2017. Tony Bernardo was there and even Andrew Scheer showed up to show his solidarity with us good folk. Scheer was pleased as punch as he’d bagged his first deer during the previous hunting season. Now if we could only get that spark of hunter instinct fanned in Scheer’s heart to a flame…then maybe…just maybe, fingers crossed, he’ll stand up to the CBC and tell ’em where the bear s*hit in the buckwheat…

Trudeau dose not want any Canadian to own a gun, it makes it easier for the Muslims when they begin the violent part of their Jihad.

Just got back from a meeting with Michele Remple and three other MPs (as well as their provincial counterpart). Their prediction is that Bill C-71 will die on the order table.

Rural folks need protection more than city folks. Whereas the city cops arrive in minutes, it can take a half hour or more out in the sticks. Our government is working against us and it’s time they get corrected. It’s time we stop shrugging and start shouting. Our elected MPs need to hear from us. Why let the leftist lunatics get away with their insane policies?

Every freedom we have is being threatened or taken away.We need a new Constitution that actually returns the rights of the individual to the individual. Failing that,we need a new country.
