Toronto Revolver Club fires back against “scapegoating” politicians

David MenziesMission Specialist

Toronto City Council has declared war on legal and law-abiding gun owners and it’s likely only a matter of time before they also legislate out of existence, the few remaining shooting ranges in Toronto.


But The Toronto Revolver Club is firing back.

Watch as I speak with the club’s past-President, Meredith Cutting about what he makes of all the knee-jerk reactions from politicians.

Only slimy politicians, loony Lieberals and uneducated people demand stricter gun laws when there is a Muslim terrorist act, nut job shooting up a club or school, or a criminal with a gun shoots his victim.

Ask these same people what gun law would they put forward to prevent the tragedy. They can’t answer because there isn’t one. Guns are easier to purchase than beer. 99% of the guns are illegally imported from Mexico and Europe by drug cartels, well organized gangs and/or one of the mobs.

The only way to stop a Muslim terrorist, nut job, or criminal with a gun is a well trained good guy with a gun.

BTW – knives kill more people annually than guns do.

This past weekend mayhem in Southside/Westside Chicago is a clear demonstration of the ongoing absurdity of having the most stringent gun ownership regulations in the United States but criminals/gangs EVIDENTLY being able to obtain them…. And it has been thus for decades!… For Chicago, the obvious question is what are you REALLY going to do about it?… Emanuel’s Democrats are part and parcel of this mayhem, and black community “spiritual leaders”, and their asinine “hug a thug” philosophies… Which once again, and again, and again, asks the question – are people not allowed to defend themselves, their families, their innocent kids? Or what is the Second Amendment really about?…

“The victims of the Danforth Terrorist needed firearms, but didn’t have them” One needs self-defence in Toronto as much is one needs self-defence in Edmonton Calgary Vancouver Winnipeg St. John’s even smalltown vermilion in Alberta… Self-defence cannot exist only for some areas but not for others… It must be clearly instituted right across the country and embraced.!!

I am a firm believer in and support open carry and legal self-defence as well as castle law in Canada… When seconds count The police arrive just in time to take statements from the survivors.!!

“Clearly, Canada is a safer country than the States, so overall there is less need for a firearm for defense.”

That was when we had the Christian majority now the demographic is changing and it’s illegal to defend yourself in this country

Sixty-three shot, at least ten dead, in gun controlled, Democrat utopia Chicago.

Flatwater, I have seen estimates of defensive gun use in the States as high as 2.5 million times a year. The statistics firmly establish that where concealed carry is allowed the overall crime rate drops. Studies have also be done of jailed felons and they indicate that privately owned firearms are a strong deterrent.
Clearly, Canada is a safer country than the States, so overall there is less need for a firearm for defense, but there are places such as Toronto and the prairies where it is prudent to have a firearm available if the need arises. Contrary to what Andrew claims, the mere possession of a firearm by a lawful citizen is often sufficient to end what otherwise would be a violent encounter. Firearms are no panacea for crime prevention, but when the state fails to control crime and terrorism and, as in Toronto, an armed citizenry can be an asset. Remember if we can save just one life by owning firearms, it is all worthwhile.

Andrew Stevenson said …

“I honestly don’t know how the gun nuts justify firearms as the solution to nearly every problem ever. " Well Andrew it is certainly the solution to every self-defence situation now isn’t it.!! Sometimes just having a fire arm on you is enough of a deterrent where nobody needs to get shot unless the other side absolutely insists on aggressing and escalating the victim to where he feels he must shoot to defend himself and neutralize the situation .!!

And just to add to the numbers they are 340 million to our 36 or so
commented 2018-08-05 18:47:37 -0400
Robert… The problem with statistics in the US is nobody bothers to mention when lives are saved by a legitimate law-abiding firearm owner who is allowed to open or concealed carry .. Who’s numbers the leftists in the politicians who wish to disarm you for their own agenda make sure those numbers never get out so don’t compare Winnipeg as a non-violent city does anything that goes on in the states… There is far more illegal firearms in the states then there is in Canada .!
commented 2018-08-05 18:34:07 -0400
Nice to see Andrew say “I don’t know” as he obviously doesn’t know very much about firearms.
Central to the argument of the left if you reduce the number of guns you will reduce the number of murders, simple. Well London, England disproves this theory with number of murders on par with New City where firearms are not banned. So the number of guns owned is not the be all and end all as suggested by the left.
So what gives with Winnipeg being a relatively safe city compared to U.S. cities? Elementary my dear Andrew. Canada, as you may have observed, is a very different country than the U.S.. Cultural and societal differences account for the disparity in murder rates. Canadians, by and large, are less likely to resort to violence. It is violence that results in death not the number of guns available.

“Geez, Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites, give your head a shake. If he only intends to “take stuff” how is a gunfight going to start? Because he has a gun as well! If he only intends to take stuff why does he have a gun?”

I honestly don’t know how the gun nuts justify firearms as the solution to nearly every problem ever.

“Your inference is that the US has a high murder rate. In fact it is not even in the top 100 int the world. And-asa I have pointed out before and you continue to ignore_ the high murder rates in the US are in the Democrat strongholds: DC, Chicago, LA, Atlanta, Detroit – basically any of the big ugly scum holes that the Dems have been in charge of for the last 50 years.”

That’s not “rates”, that’s absolute numbers, and that’s due to the higher population. The highest murder rate is St. Louis, MO, and LA barely breaks the top 50 big cities. It’s one of the safer ones, although still outrageous by Canadian standards, about three times our worst city’s, which is usually Winnipeg. Interestingly enough, cities like New York or Honolulu, absolute Democrat strongholds, are among the safest cities in the US. Oh, and if guns are so important for safety, how do you explain the simple observation that our most murderous major city, Winnipeg, has a murder rate that would place it among the safest American ones (again, about level with NYC)? If the NRA’s propaganda were accurate, Canada should be an absolute bloodbath. Instead our national rate is a third theirs. Why?

Nah, the NRA’s too busy buying American politicians with Russian money.

Andy Neimers" If this had been a “shooting incident” instead of a car crash, WHAT THE FUCK was I supposed to do in the interim?" If he’s a burglar, he’s interested in taking stuff, not shooting you. Start a gunfight and you just dramatically increased the chances of one or both of you dying.


Geez, Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites, give your head a shake. If he only intends to “take stuff” how is a gunfight going to start? Because he has a gun as well! If he only intends to take stuff why does he have a gun? How does one know which burglars are only want to take your stuff and which ones would like to rape and murder while they’re at it? I guess yours the same logic as with muslims- they aren’t all terrorists- and take your chances. If you want tone murder and rape fodder, be my guest. But don’t take away my right to defend myself and my wife and daughters. Very “heroic” indeed. There’s a reason why American gun deaths are so high.


We’ve been over this before but all the evidence in the world never convinces a lefty since they want to believe a lie. GUnd deaths are irrelevant since how you die makes no difference- you as dead with a van or golf club or knife as with a gun. Dead is dead.

Your inference is that the US has a high murder rate. In fact it is not even in the top 100 int the world. And-asa I have pointed out before and you continue to ignore_ the high murder rates in the US are in the Democrat strongholds: DC, Chicago, LA, Atlanta, Detroit – basically any of the big ugly scum holes that the Dems have been in charge of for the last 50 years.

If those were removed from the stats the US would be in the bottom 50 in the world. Why so you continue to trot out this BS?

Luckily, we don’t live in the US and such incidents are rare. How often does having a gun actually “save” anybody? If he’s a burglar, he’s interested in taking stuff, not shooting you. Start a gunfight and you just dramatically increased the chances of one or both of you dying. Very “heroic” indeed. There’s a reason why American gun deaths are so high.

God, it’s so tiresome to re-state the obvious over and over and over again… There is some “magical” belief that in Canada’s major cities, when the shit hits the fan, the police will be there in a matter of “minutes” to save your sorry ass from the badies… But what about the rest of Canada, the second largest land mass nation on earth?… When living on Digby Neck in Nova Scotia several years ago, I had a rollover accident across the road from my house in the Rossway part of Hwy.217… On hearing the crash and the squeal of tires I immediately called 911…. It took the local volunteer fire department 17 minutes to respond and the RCMP 19 minutes to get to the scene… If this had been a “shooting incident” instead of a car crash, WHAT THE FUCK was I supposed to do in the interim?… Pray and meditate on the “oneness of things”? Grow up assholes, and start to face reality across Canada!…

Andrew Stephenson it would have turned out better than waiting for the cops and allowing the terrorist to keep shooting people.

Tory uses the same rhetoric and distorted logic that Rahm Emanuel uses in Chicago.
The drug gangs have taken over the neighborhoods and they get the ultimate protection from these progressive politicians .
Pathetic and people are dying because of them and their arrogant condescending attitudes and virtue signaling .

You are right Andrew. What a silly idea. The solution is a hero in a van with a gun.”

How do you figure that would’ve worked out, given how crowded that part of the city is?

You can hear the exasperation in Mr. Cutting’s voice. He’s right…All os sport shooters feel that frustration… Unfortunately, the MSM is responsible for so much damage by their constant fanning of the flames, demanding bans etc…Punishing the innocent by seizing their property is not the answer…it’s the criminal gangsters who should be dealt with harshly…

The best point was the liebral,s squashing the conservative mandatory minimums for gang bangers with guns and drugs in commission of a crime. Turdo is so stupid he actually thinks these creeps will vote for him. Also the liebrals gave prisoners the vote ( see Cretian). They will do anything to get votes. Prisoners vote for soft on crime governments no surprise. This is also why prison riding,s never vote conservative. Yep Clifford Olsen the butcher of BC got to vote so does all the other worst of the worst.
