Feds look to clamp down on guns ‘designed to hunt people’
 
OTTAWA — The Liberal government says no options have been ruled out to clamp down on guns “designed to hunt people” as it weighs new measures against assault-style rifles and handguns.

The sharply worded statement from the office of Bill Blair, the minister leading the review, comes amid concerns from gun-control advocates that such rifles are becoming more readily available on the legal market.

Firearms groups, meanwhile, fear the government is poised to penalize law-abiding owners in the name of appearing tough on criminals.

Looks like the RCMP are hunters, since they have guns designed for hunting humans.

Well, that is kinda the point...............

This is all SO STUPID... Vote pandering at it's worst.

I keep hearing about how it's going to save lives, mostly in the context of domestic violence. Almost entirely from liberal MPs, who all seem to be concerned women......the spin going on, bereft of facts or any supporting evidence, is sickening.

Yet another reason I chose to move out of Canada, although I fear it’s a matter of time before that happens here too....

Those types of guns are awful. I only like the type of guns that are designed for hunting, target shooting or that group of them designed to prevent other people from hunting me! (and my family, my friends, fellow citizens).

I like guns designed to prevent the hunting of people.

Stinky Buffalo 05-31-2019 07:41 AM

I HAVE to have firearms... Because I can't hunt with my spear anymore... :mad0030:

I hope the government will do similar things with musical instruments. They had better outlaw guitars and keyboards that have been used to play horrible music and leave the instruments that have only ever played good music.

The government is too clueless to even realize that many handguns, and some AR type rifles were designed specifically for hunting or target use. The same with many semi auto rifles and shotguns.

Deezel 05-31-2019 09:41 AM

The government is not clueless. They know exactly what they're doing.
It's the majority of people that they rule who are clueless.

They are clueless about firearms, but they do know how to play on the emotions of people that are clueless.:)

It's not about public safety or the Libs would have statistics to back a ban they don't have squat except a public funded media to spread hysteria and news from another country.
Socks is throwing firearm owners under the bus to regain the lost woman's votes because of the Philpot and Wilson-Raybould affair hopefully the woman see through the ruse.

Saw this online this morning.

Liberal mentality.
The ONLY way to stop death from drunk drivers is to ban sober drivers from driving.

I can 'sort of' see their way of thinking; when all firearms are banned everyone that is caught with one is a criminal and is arrested, picture taken, set free to go find another one.

C&R in its truest form, the only problem is they are not being rough enough on the fish.

Thread gold right there. :)

I wonder if they were referring to the people who want to hunt down nazis on our soil like that Mr.Dave guy, i wonder what sort of firearm nazi hunters prefer?

I wonder how long it would have been before he had a visit from the authorities if had said he was going to hunt down any other kind of human beings?

Pretty much EVERY firearm in existence today was originally designed to hunt people from matchlocks to Brown Bess to 1860 Henry to Lee Enfield to modern semis.....in 1905,a .303 Ross was a military assault rifle.

Don’t let the Liberals watch any old westerns with those high capacity, assaultlever action rifles!

To Be Discussed
 
Today a report was tabled about a Genocide committed in Canada. A "Genocide" is the intentional killing of a large group of people. In that report there are no statements detailing the types of firearms used to commit this mass murder.

Laws are being changed to reduce gun violence against certain groups in our society. But why hasn't there been a mass shooting at a Police Station ? What is there about occupants in a Police Station that makes them so different than occupants in a church, or in a school classroom ?

The report tabled today has hundreds of recommendations on what Canada has to do to stop this genocide. Not one recommendation relates to new federal laws relating to firearms. How can a Genocide unrelated to firearms take precedent over other aspects of public safety ? If we have an identifiable group that can prove they are the victims of a mass murder and can identify the group that is murdering them then the intention to kill must be deliberate.

The sad fact is that this is nothing more than political grandstanding, to try and make people forget about the SNC, and Norman scandals, and about the illegal immigrants, and about the economy. The liberals want to buy votes from the gullible people that they can be easily panicked, by propaganda, and that don't actually bother to look at the stats. The facts are that the number of people killed or injured by firearms is insignificant compared to tobacco and alcohol deaths and diseases. And there have been no shooting massacres using AR platforms in Canada..

Get creative and think of all the places that Bill, Ralph, and Justin could stuff it lol.

The only truth of this ban on fire arms is it is how communist governments gain control of their people. Sadly our education system no longer teaches this fact to our children. It has not for so long now few people remember this fact. It is time we fire arms owners make this fact known. We will also have to educate the public that communism is not the bed of roses they now believe it is. It is high time we become far more vocal or all of our rights will be gone.
