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.
