Toronto Star stealth edits claim that lawful gun owners are “effective” killers

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Toronto Star edited a story to make a pro-gun control lobbyist seem less crazy and less bigoted towards lawful Canadian gun owners.


Toronto experienced 14 different shootings, leaving 17 different people injured, over the August long weekend. The shootings are overwhelmingly gang-related and committed with illegal guns, but that hasn't stopped the Liberals and their buddies in the gun control lobby from blaming the innocent.

Wendy Cukier, president of the Coalition for Gun Control told the Toronto Star why she thinks trained, responsible, firearms owners are the real problem, even if they never break a law:

One of the terrible ironies is that when you see the proliferation of guns often associated with gang violence, you have lots of shootings but fewer people are killed, perhaps because they don’t spend hours and hours at the shooting range,” she said.

She wants people to be less trained and less safe, for public safety reasons? That’s insane but it wasn't the only thing she said to the Star that was bizarre - maybe even a little too bizarre for the Star. Maybe Katie Telford made a call.

This paragraph disappeared from the final version of the Star’s story:

“Asked for her thoughts on how Toronto could be experiencing a surge in the number of shootings, but a decline in gun-related deaths, Cukier, the Coalition for Gun Control president, said that legal gun owners tend to be more effective in killing people because they spend time at target practice, or hunting.”

Unreal. Cukier is implying that Canadian RPAL holders are murder machines because they follow the laws and use their guns in the places prescribed under Canadian law for completely legal reasons. Way more deadly than those Toronto gangsters with their illegal handguns tucked into the waistband of their pants!

In today’s video I’ll show you how I caught the Star scrubbing the kooky from Cukier to protect her ability to push new gun control laws the Liberals are promising to campaign on. I’ll also take you through the real data that debunks the lies people like Cukier tell about the firearms community, like the statistical realty that Canadian PAL holders are ⅓ less likely to commit a murder than the rest of society at large.

So dishonest. So in the bag for the Liberals and so predictable.

The Toronto Star receives $115,000 per week in handouts for the Trudeau government. That buys a lot of story rewrites for Liberal allies who say something extremist and stupid to reporters about law abiding Canadians. But, I am glad, if just for a moment, the Star published the truth about how prejudiced the gun control lobby is, in their own words.

We need to know just how dumb they are, how their bad ideas will result in more deaths and how they look at one of the safest demographics in all of Canada as trained killing machines while giving those who don't follow the laws a free pass.

Wendy Cukier has been around for thirty or more years pushing her anti gun agenda. She has not made really any headway. It must be driving her Kooky. But one good thing is that she is getting on and she is fast reaching her expiry date.
She relies very heavily on lies to push her hatred of firearms users. Like all the other anti gun lobbyists she is a chronic loser. Mostly because in Canada we really couldn’t have very much more restrictions forced upon legal gun owners than what there already is. Well, other than total ban of all guns and confiscation. That would make her happy for a short time only. Because if that happened, there would be no further need of liars and I don’t know anything about guns crusaders like her anymore. She would suddenly become even less important than she is and have nothing to do. She would have to find a hobby like sewing or Coo Coo Clock Collecting. The solution to the gun violence in Toronto is simple. But to really get started, you have to get rid of the idiot squad that is in charge but continually demonstrate how clueless and impotent they are.

as always no surprise from the commie lefties. lying, and very kooky in the extreme. gangs use weapons- robbers use them too, but lawful gun owners do not use them to commit crime. trudeau is far too stupid to figure that out and his paid media scum are just as stupid. canada will be cursed with fools like that forever.

I must admit that separatism looks pretty good. In fact, Canada should be pulled back to its 1867 borders. Those are the only people who matter to Ottawa politicians. They’re also stuck in 1867.

Here’s my solution for GTA violence and namby pamby politicians like John Tory. Make Western Canada a separate country then the Toronto situation would be in a strange and foreign land.

Lone Stubblejumper.. I’d like to add to your solution..

Let’s file a divorce/separation with the first post Nation that Trudeau labelled Canada. Know matter what the results are of the October Election. For argument sakes.. call the first post Nation.. Trudopeia. The new Country.. let’s call it New Canada.

While the divorce is in motion. Both Nations cannot send money to anyone inside or outside of the Nations without signatures and approval from all involved.
New Legal Border Crossing areas will be constructed on a few designated roadways. The rest of them walled off.

Trudopeia’s Borders would be the current US Border on the south end, New Canada’s Border would be on the north end.. say just north of Montreal, Toronto etc.. from East to West Coasts.
This way the Trudopeian’s can worship their King Trudeau.. and Trudeau gets to do what he wants with Trudopeia.

We all get what we want.. New Canada would be free of funding the CBC presstitutes(many more advantages to list).
Trudeau and the current day Liberalism’s can ban all that they want. swimming pools.. kitchen knives.. Transport Trucks.. Rental Vans.. etc. Doesn’t affect us anymore.

A couple of analogies..

Why would a tenant stay in a dwelling that is about to collapse from being rotten from the roof down to the basement? When the Landlord(Trudeau & Liberalist) causes the rot too speed up.
Not all relationships work out, it’s obvious Trudeau and his cohorts want to divide Canada.. Let’s separate in a civilized contracted agreement.
Complicated?.. Not really.. Sending Men to the Moon is complicated..

Surely we can have a divorce and both Nations move on their separate ways.. New Canada keeps and restores all Canadian Heritage that our Veteran’s fought and died for and they didn’t die in vain because of the current day Liberalism cancer. New Canada would just keep improving without them.

Where are all the new laws and stiffer sentences for the criminals caught with illegal hand guns.

Do you mean the ones that Harper enacted? Justin and Ralph Goodale made it a point to repeal each and every one of them…how’s THAT for hypocracy.

When it comes to private citizen-owned firearms, there is only one agenda of the globalists – who have infiltrated and taken over all Western countries – and that agenda is total confiscation and the outlawing of private ownership of firearms! Period! There’ll be no New World Order without it!
The reason why can be found in the intent of America’s 2nd Amendment…
…so what does that say about those gun-grabbers like Jihadi-Justin-Grabber and the Cukiest of Wendys?

’Ye shall know them by their fruits…"

How to Create a Socialist State (gun control #4)

1. Health care – Control health care and you control the people.

2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4. Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and

6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools. Also attack religious point of views as being discriminatory.

8. Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take taxes. Divide people by race, sexual orientations and religious views.

The lemmings who reside in the GTA-Ottawa-Montreal Triangle are terminally Liberal and frightened of their own shadows so why let them rule over us…we can keep our guns and Toronto can keep Wendy Cukier…

Wendy Cukier, in one person alone, epitomize the leftward drift of Ryerson University over the years when my old old “alma mater” was just affectionately know as “Rye High”… Back in the hippie 60s and 70s there were enough of us Eastern European refugees as students who could keep the dialogue honest when leftie profs tried to spin communist bullshit… Since then the Cukiers have prevailed with now obvious results…

Well then she can go without.

Glenn, I think it is pronounced, Kookier, as in Kok Koo for Cocoa Puffs.

I have to admit I would have guessed the first syllable as “cuck”…but that’s a result of conversation on other …unrelated?…..forums…:-)

Pretty sure the name is pronounced SOO – kee – yer. I was interning at the radio station in Wainrwright, AB when she was in Allan Rock’s back pocket, pulling his strings when the Liberals were pushing thru their first run at gun control. Wainwright was the anti-gun-control capital, so I got a healthy education on the subject, and old Wendy was on the tip of everyone’s tongue. I get that pronouncing it KOOK – ee – yer sounds funny, tho.

At certain ranges I can shoot as acurately as a military sniper. I know this because I have mounted the firing line with men who have trained military snipers. In fact some of the best marksmen, not only in Canada, but in the world, their names are renowned at Bisley and Camp Perry and where ever marksmen have convened to compete. Canada has won more medals in shooting than in any and all sporting events including hockey.

But does that make me a “sniper”…no…not by a long shot. I cannot kill a rat or a red squirell that chews a hole in my house without remorse. So I would never make the cut to be one of the “snipers” these men have trained.

Wendy Cukier bears a grudge…she was the victim of a cultural miscreant who ran amok with a gun….get over it Wendy…the cops shot him dead….with no remorse that they would ever admit to.

Sheila….we have learned through science that that human brain requires oxygen to function…..Numerous people have refused to accept this fact (They are Deniers…???) and continue to practice the ritual of inserting the brain into the anal cavity to achieve some sort of transcendental/spiritual adventure and cosmic cleansing.
Well….the jury is back on this one….do not try this at home (or work,or play).
Engaging in this oxygen deprivation exercise (and surviving),is extremely dangerous (and annoying) to any and all rational humans on planet earth.

Thanks for exposing this, Sheila. This proves that “progressives” are delusional. The world doesn’t work the way they want it to so they try to force it to. The problem is that reality doesn’t conform to any person’s ideals. Therefore, liberals are insane and they keep on forcing their insanity on us sane people.

It is not “gun violence” in Toronto, it is “gang violence”, guns are merely one of the means by which gangs impose their will.
How would Wicked Wendy make her assessment that lawful firearms owners are more efficient killers since they aren’t the ones doing the killing? Her argument makes no sense whatsoever when applied to reality. Her decades of professional activism have left this woman unhinged.
