Civil gun owners no threat

When the federal Conservative government abolished the long-gun registry back in 2012, gun-control advocates predicted no end to the criminal chaos that would result.
If duck hunters, farmers and collectors were no longer required to register their rifles and shotguns, women would not be safe in their homes. They would be slaughtered by their murderous male partners.

One Ontario women’s legal clinic even tried to stop the dismantling of the registry by taking the Stephen Harper government to court. The Barbra Schlifer Clinic insisted it was a violation of women’s Charter rights to no longer be protected by the registry.

Gun-control activists also forecast rampant crime in Canadian streets. And, of course, the murder rate would soar.

    I’m no firearm expert by any means but that is a shotgun. He’s aiming it at something.
    No one aims a shotgun, they point it. He pulls the trigger and he’s going to have one sore cheek and maybe a few loose teeth..Please correct me if I’m wrong/

      He’s of the special kind, don’t you know that???
      No different from their driving skills.
      They pass their driving test by bribing their ICBC examiners, I wonder if he pulled the same trick on his Firearm Safety Examiner?
      You’ve to see these guys at POCO where they come in hordes & treat the range as some pingpong club.

        Looks to me like that O/U’s stock is nestled between his shoulder and collarbone, not in his face. BTW, the shotgun has sights, and he’s using them.

      I think he’s checking the barrel for damage, it doesn’t look like his finger is on the trigger rather they are curled up. You can tell by the way he is looking and that he doesn’t have the stock into his shoulder.

        Perhaps you’ve a second picture with another pose as his right (shooting) hand is not visible in this picture.

        • Exile1981

          Look below the left hand in the above pic and you will see two fingers from the right hand curled below and behind and the angle says he most likely doesn’t have his fingers anywhere near the trigger.

    Why don’t we just bypass all these extra laws, and throw every straight white male in prison…..because according to all the progressive shriekers, they’re all rapists and murderers anyway.

    Victimhood as an identity. Well, it’s a lot easier than earning status by actually accomplishing something.

    Civilian gun owners are a threat to Barry Soetoro & Company
    ….documented

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stands by the report, which lists returning veterans and gun owners among terrorist risks to the U.S

    “the report, which also listed gun owners and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as potential risks.”

    Firearms may be used in some violent crimes, but they are not the cause of violent crime. There are much more serious issues about violent people who use any kind of weapon.

    FACTS:
    1. Virtually all places where concealed or open CW is allowed the crime rate is way below their national average, and that’s a fact msm & libtards make sure to ignore & hide.

    2. Almost all mass shooting in the last 40 years were committed in gun free zones. The perpetrators have chosen such vulnerable places deliberately & not by chance.

    3. A legally armed citizenry is more law-abiding & in hours of need could be an asset to the society.

    4. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

    Finally; The goal of someone who legally owns and carries a firearm for self defense is not to kill people but rather to stop a threat.

      2. Almost all mass shooting in the last 40 years were committed in gun
      free zones. The perpetrators have chosen such vulnerable places
      deliberately & not by chance.

      2b. Almost all mass shootings have been done by registered democrats, many were also being treated for mental disorders.

        The same leftists who pushed to close down the mental hospitals, are the ones to blame when so many mentally ill people end up causing violence in society.

        • Exile1981

          They shut them down out of a concern that they would end up in there themselves. 🙂

    • Clausewitz

      To a psycho leftist spree killer, a gun free zone is perceived as the happy hunting grounds.

      “that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken guys with baseball bats”
      That’s why I am an advocate for gun owners. My sister was mugged, my mother was robbed and I lived in a town a half an hour away from police/RCMP. I have never felt so unsafe.

    I want my free permit upgrade because it only makes sense and is totally fair.

  • ontario john

    I guess the next step would be to ban all forms of knives, since every day in Toronto are one or more stabbings. Usually by our multi-cultural community with mohammad being a common name.

    • James Hamilton

      You betcha.
      Loony Britons have already beaten us Canadians in that.

  • robins111

    I see Spider Eyed Tommy has declared that the Dippers will redo the Long Gun Registry as soon as they are elected. Course it would be cynical of me to notice that he’s pandering for the Quebec vote, just before the annual grave dance for the victims of Gamil Gharbi, held in Montreal. Also known as the annual celebration day, the cowardly male university students left the room so the women could get killed.

    • Clausewitz

      The Poly killings. Hmmmmmm, lets see, a deranged male killing a number of women because he is either afraid of, or has a profound hatred of everything female. Now where have I read about that lately, and what seems to be the one thing in common.
      And lets not even get into the story about the supposed men of that class who abandoned the women to their fate. Cowards.

      • James Hamilton

        >> He was a mohammedan by birth son of an mussulman Algerian immigrant. He was following sharia to the letter. Hating & killing western, modern, liberated, free thinking women. That is the fact. The libtards & MSM won’t talk about this reality as it will expose the truth so they go after ‘guns’ an easy & touchy subject.

    • Maggat

      The “cowardly male students” had to leave to look for their white hankies.

  • Freedom

    I don’t feel safe going to places that advertise that they don’t allow guns.

    Why don’t anti – gun people put signs in their front yard “ This is a gun free zone” and
    see how that works out.
