GUNTER: Rural communities under the gun

The federal Liberals’ upcoming gun control legislation and the recent spike in rural crime are closely related.

No, I don’t mean that if the Libs can just do something about getting guns under control, they will reduce the rural crime rate, which has risen by more than 20% in many rural parts of the country over the past five years.

Nope. From that aspect, past Liberal gun control measures have actually made rural crime worse.
