A state top-loaded with gun laws wants more such laws.
As a child, I was terrified to fly. Still am to some degree.
But back then, seeing the aftermaths of the occasional plane crash on the evening news filled me with unspeakable terror. I always dreamed of going to Europe, but vowed that when I did, I would travel by boat.
My fears soon subsided, however, when during the course of one of these nightmarish stories a reporter described the “black boxes” that recorded flight data and were used by crash investigators to determine exactly what went wrong. These boxes were all but indestructible, the man on the news claimed, to ensure that investigators would have access to the priceless data inside. Why then, I wondered, did they simply not construct the entire plane out of the same material they used to make the black boxes? It was only a matter of time, I just knew it.
For months we have been treated to a repeated lie about where crime guns come from in this country.
We are told over and over again that 50% of crime guns used in Canada are domestically sourced, that they are stolen from law abiding gun owners.
Of course neither police nor the Liberal politicians that put this idea forward can ever back it up. They don’t provide evidence, they just make the claim and most media print it.
A mass-shooting at a bar in California by a U.S. Marine combat veteran Wednesday night shows the need for more gun control, an activist said.
The Canadian government said its survey on banning guns is an “open, anonymous and barrier-free tool” as it responded to concern of biased questions and unreliable answers.
Hundreds of Jewish people are heading to the gun range following the devastating Pittsburgh synagogue shooting rampage, that is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.
The shooting that killed 11 worshipers at the Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue on October 27, was a wake-up call for the Jewish community.
Many headed to the Cherev Gidon Israeli Tactical Defense Academy in Honesdale, Pennsylvania for a special one-day course on Tuesday October 30th to learn how to handle and shoot a gun.
The group known as the Black Panther Party sent members to support former Democrat state representative Stacey Abrams in her bid for governor against Republican Brian Kemp. The Black Panthers announced their presence on social media and openly carried assault rifles as they marched through parts of the West End neighborhood.
For some time I have been a supporter of the Second Amendment — intellectually. I agreed with the Founders’ rationale for the right to bear arms. I even joined the NRA.
But I never bought a gun.
Two unrelated terror attacks over the past ten days have revealed an establishment media rabidly desperate to strip President Trump and his supporters of our right to defend ourselves.
Even before we knew the identity or motive of the man behind a dozen or so pipe bombs mailed to prominent left-wingers — CNN, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, George Soros, Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, Robert De Niro, etc. — the media were already speculating and exploiting this appalling crime into a weapon to strip us of our First Amendment rights — and not just us, but the free speech rights of our own President Trump.
Last week, hot on the heels of the backdoor gun registry, Bill C-71, the Trudeau Liberal government moved forward on its next phase of harassing law-abiding firearms owners with its initiative to ban handguns and so-called assault weapons.
There is an online consultation that you can take on Justin Trudeau’s idea of a handgun ban and it is a complete farce.
For many rural Albertans, Maurice’s story seems to confirm their worst fears: that crime is out of control, that police are unable to do anything about it.
The South African Parliament may soon adopt a law forbidding South Africans from obtaining firearm licences for the purpose of self-defence. A flat out gun ban. If a leaked draft copy of the Firearms Control Amendment Bill is to be considered the final intention of the ruling ANC government.
The mayor of Winnipeg, Brian Bowman, joined his counterpart in Toronto in wanting to confiscate handguns from lawful owners, the Winnipeg Sun reported yesterday, quoting the mayor. Active and retired police leaders across Canada have said they don’t favour new bans.
Michael Tibollo, Ontario’s Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, backed hunters and sport shooters this week and reiterated Premier Doug Ford’s rejection of any gun or ammunition bans.
The city councils in both Toronto and Montreal have called for a ban on handguns. So have the majority of mayoral candidates in Vancouver. The federal government is holding town hall meetings on the subject.
I have a better solution. Why not just ban gang shootings? That would have the same effect, i.e. none, but at least it would take account of the facts.
