Seems like a good thing to see for a change, although it was also said last year I believe. Police Chiefs think laws as we have them are adequate, on handguns anyway, no need for a ban.

Looks like the democrats are trying the assault weapon ban in the US again, and if you check IRUN GUNS site, they have just changed the export criteria, all guns must be shipped thru a licensed exporter, if you want a gun off Gun Broker, or a private sale, the exporter has to buy it for you. The proposed export changes from last year are dead.

This is the bill on the house floor down there now, needless to say, the NRA has a call to action out.

The very last sentence in this article illustrates the Liberal Party's mindset, and how they figure that if they tell a lie enough times, people will believe it is true , when it comes to their descriptions of creating a safer Canada with their legislation;

One example from the Quebec gov't of how the background checks can be used to screw people applying for a PAL. It is a risk from any party in power as it is good political optics, at our expense;



Google translated:
Concerned that the killer of the mosque has easily thwarted the Canadian arms control system, François Legault does not intend, for now, to demand a tightening of the rules in Ottawa.

The Prime Minister reacted to the revelations of our Office of Investigation into the killer of the Quebec City mosque. Alexandre Bissonnette easily lied in his form to acquire six guns. In particular, he managed to obtain two restricted weapons.

"Indeed, it is worrying," said Prime Minister Francois Legault.

"Are there measures to put in place to avoid that? What measure? (...) We will examine it, but it is too early to make an official request to the federal government. "

"This is a serious issue," said Public Safety Minister Geneviève Guilbault's office, hoping to improve the process for verifying medical histories. "We are open to evaluating all options with the government that will be in place. "

According to our information and testimonies collected, the killing of the mosque could have been avoided if the Canadian arms control system was not based solely on the good faith of the applicants, mainly on the issue of mental health. Alexandre Bissonnette had a serious history on his medical file.

At the expense of the applicant

For its part, Québec solidaire believes that an applicant must provide a medical certificate, at his own expense, to acquire a restricted weapon.

"Owning a restricted weapon is a privilege, not a right. It would be easier and more effective for applicants to self-certify their mental health when applying for or renewing a firearms possession and acquisition license, "said the party, adding that presupposing Applicants' good faith has shown limitations and failures with tragic consequences.

A similar policy exists at Transport Canada as part of the Airplane Pilot Permit.

According to QS, a new certificate should be requested, every 5 years, when renewing the permit.

Meanwhile, QS argues that the CAQ government can now enforce the law more vigorously. "Currently, very few resources deal with the processing of license applicants at the SQ, and very few files are formally audited."

No checks

A point of view shared by Heidi Rathjen, coordinator of Polysesouvient. She points out that even if these criteria are set by federal law, their application is ensured by the Sûreté du Québec.

In the form, an applicant must provide a list of two respondents who may be asked to answer questions from the SQ. As for a passport.

"There is no systematic follow-up with respondents, or even random checks to validate the legitimacy of respondents," says Rathjen.

In a letter sent to Polysesouvient a year ago and during the election campaign, the CAQ had nevertheless indicated its intention to better control the search for antecedents for applicants for weapons acquisition licenses.

"The Coalition Avenir Québec is open to studying all measures to improve the security surrounding the licensing process by the Sûreté du Québec. While respecting federal jurisdiction, we must ensure better control of the search for antecedents to avoid tragedies, "said the missive.

promises

Like the Bloc Québécois, the PQ argues that the applicants' background must be verified by verifying the health history of those who want to buy restricted weapons.

The problem, she says, is that there is no real verification of the applicants' mental health background.

In fact, the three main federal opposition parties are committed to improving the mental background check of those who want a firearm.

Looks like the Libs are likely to give the cities the option of banning possession in the cities or central storage, or something of that ilk, sounds assenine whatever they are hinting at;

Right from the horse's mouth, the man was educated about terminology in the consultations,and still continues to use the same falsehoods, and continues with the "if you tell a lie enough times, it will become the truth" routine.

An interesting collection of the polling numbers that illustrates the risk of the split vote factor;

This isn’t anti PPC, it is about strategic voting to save our guns.

Re: How the PPC Voters Can Help Trudeau Win, or Not

Here are 36 ridings where the PPC voters can make the difference between a Liberal (or NDP) win and a Conservative win. These are “toss up" ridings where the projected PPC vote is greater than the margin between the Liberal and Conservative candidates, meaning the people voting for the PPC will have this effect:

(A) If they give their votes to the CPC, the CPC will likely win that seat;
(B) If they give their votes to the PPC, then the Liberals (or NDP) will likely win that seat; and
(C) In none of these ridings will giving votes to the PPC have any chance whatsoever of giving a seat to the PPC. ZERO chance.

If you are thinking about voting PPC in any of these ridings, that vote directly supports the Liberal Party of Canada and Justin Trudeau’s continuation in power. DO NOT DO THAT!!!

Ottawa councillor thinks giving the municipalities the power to implement a handgun ban is a good idea, mayor isn't sure. As has been said, giving cities the power to override the province? Doesn't make any sense.

375million seems light to me, but, it is a fair chunk of change to dangle out there isn't it? It isn't really a buyback, it is tax dollars taken from every Canadian, being used to fund confiscation. Semi auto guns weren't even issued in WW1, but they had been around since 1885.

Libs have posted their "budget for tackling gun crime". Says 250m, for what they say is 250,000 guns. You can figure out what they may be offering for a 2-3 or 4000.00 gun from that, not to mention it doesn't take into account the upgrades and accessories. Nothing about the loss to the stores either. Guess they are on their own with their inventory leftovers, and we are stuck with the accessories and upgrades as a loss as well.
If we split the vote, and the Libs get a minority, the NDP and Greens may opt for less than this. They will not go against it, they have both said that clearly.
The BS starts on pg78, the actual "gun crimes" figure is on pg 82.

Trudope & Blair holding an interview with the Doctors Against Guns group. They have their points of view, they have been there and dealt with it, and they want to treat it as a public health issue. Draw your own conclusions. This is something we need to understand, to be able to argue against the strictly emotional arguments they do present, and be able to pressure the politicians to do the right things to help as much as we can, to address the problems that cause the situation we gun owners are in;

Valley Firearms

I am a wife, a mother, a non-firearms owner and a very concerned citizen. I watched you, Mr.Trudeau, coffee in hand while I slugged 3 kids off to school.

I heard you. I listened hard. I raised my hand, until you said you wanted to ban firearms. What!? Ban firearms? That will create a safer Canada. The majority of Canadians want this, have requested it. Really?! Have my fellow Canadians lost all common sense? I’m hard pressed to think they have. I like to believe that Canada is full of intelligent, hard working, common sense individuals. Have I been wrong all this time?

I want a safer Canada. I want less violence. I’ve been a victim of gun violence. I am a woman. A mother. I am not a firearms owner. I am the very person you spoke of this morning and I DO NOT support the ban on firearms. Want to know why? How’s the opioid crisis doing right now? Oh, I forgot for a second. Our nation is in the WORST opioid crisis in history. We take our kids to school, take our kids to the park, walk our dogs and what do we find, drug paraphernalia scattered in plain sight. So here’s a solution, let’s ban drugs, make them illegal. Canada will be safer. That’s the answer to all of this! Oh wait a second, drugs ARE illegal, they ARE banned and sadly we are still in the worst opioid crisis in history. Hmmm. So Mr.Trudeau, how does banning firearms make Canada safer?

I would argue that maybe the solution to BOTH of these issues, gun violence and our opioid crisis, along with many others in our communities, is our lack of mental health awareness and funding. Why don’t you take your 250 million and put it where it will actually make a difference. Mental Health. That’s the real issue. Isn’t it? The real issue effecting Canadians. But, I forgot, we don’t actually want to talk about Mental Health, do we? Let’s keep sweeping it under the rug and while we are at it let’s keep putting bandaids on the non- issues and funding them with Canadian Tax payer dollars.

I know! Let’s ban firearms and while we are at it let’s ban automobiles, alcohol, people’s fists, their voices oh, let’s go ahead and ban just about everything in society that could potentially cause some sort of violence. Because really?! Any person can take just about anything and make it a weapon, right? So let’s take it all away, then we can all live in a safer Canada. Oh how wonderful! I’m ecstatic now! I feel so much safer now. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?!

I’ll remember this the next time I step on a used needle in the park with my kids in tow or the next time an ad for Narcan comes on the television. We fixed the opioid crisis because we made drugs illegal. Wrong! We didn’t didn’t fix a damn thing and banning firearms won’t fix a damn thing either!

But, wait! What do I know. I’m just a mom. Just a woman. Just a victim of gun violence. Just a non-firearms owner. Just an individual who wants a safer Canada. Just a one vote. And Mr.Trudeau, that’s one vote you won’t get.

If you really need to see more of this Minister of Nothing spewing his garbage, this is the CCFR's annotated version of the interview with him they did in his riding office. He really is a piece of work to behold, makes a person gag.

Advance polls are open today, a vote for the PPC, NDP, or Green is a vote to support the Liberals and their firearms platform, remember that.

This one is a bit much to say the least, an Ontario judge seems to think it is OK for a criminal to fire "warning shots" at cops who are chasing him.....

From the CSSA, what will most likely occur if the libs are re-elected, possibly also if they run with a coalition with NDP or Bloc;

After Trudeau’s Gun Ban: A Primer for
Unwitting and Uninformed Advocates
(Unintended Consequences, Part 2)

A shocking number of Canadians believe guns should be banned from licensed owners. They mistakenly believe taking guns away from honest, RCMP-vetted citizens will magically stop criminals and the gang violence that the evil shower upon our communities.

Let’s assume, for the sake of this commentary, such an approach could actually work. What does the path to confiscating 250,000 “Restricted” and “Non-Restricted” firearms look like?

Step 1: Legislation

The government can ban most guns immediately through the undemocratic Order-In-Council process, but the Liberals have, so far at least, refused to go this route. Instead, they have opted for the legislative route to reclassify and ban firearms they don't like.

As Bill C-71 has demonstrated, the process to draft, introduce and pass new legislation will take at least a year, and more likely two.

Step 2: Registration Certificate Revocation

While this new legislation winds its way through the House of Commons and the Senate, the government will revoke the registration certificates for all “Restricted” class firearms included in its proposed ban.

The RCMP’s Canadian Firearms Centre will then revoke all those registration certificates and notify federally-licensed, RCMP-vetted firearm owners that they are in illegal possession of a “Prohibited” firearm, just like the police did in New Zealand.

Owners of AR-15 target rifles should expect transport privileges also to be revoked for these guns while the confiscatory legislation is being pushed through Parliament.

What happens after the legislation is passed and given Royal Assent?

Step 3: Surrender Your “Prohibited” Firearms

Once the government’s legislation passes, they will order licensed firearm owners to surrender their guns. This brings up three serious issues to which the government does not appear to have given any thought.

How do you comply?

What is the process for you, the gun owner, to surrender your newly “Prohibited” firearm(s), since you can’t take them to the police station?

Because they are now classified as “Prohibited” firearms, owners of these newly-banned firearms cannot legally transport “Prohibited” guns. If you illegally transport a “Prohibited” rifle, you could open yourself up to criminal charges, despite government claims of an “amnesty.”

Do NOT take your gun to the police station.

Whether during one of their highly publicized “gun buy-back programs” or not, police forces across the nation routinely plead for people to NOT bring guns into a police station. Instead, they advise the following:

Under no circumstances should you bring a firearm into a police station.
Call the police non-emergency line, and tell them you want to surrender one or more firearms.
When police arrive to collect your firearm(s) do NOT bring them to the door. Leave your firearms securely stored (in your gun safe), and allow the police officer to remove it from your secure storage.

How does the government know who owns “Non-Restricted” firearms that are now reclassified as “Prohibited”?

They don’t.

Without a registry for “Non-Restricted” rifles, the government has no clue who owns these guns. This brings up a few interesting questions.

Will the government use the illegal copies of the supposedly-deleted Long Gun Registry to track down these newly-banned guns? The government admits the data was not deleted, despite lying to Parliament that it was, and Quebec (and everybody else) has a copy of the entire database.

Is this why the Liberal government insisted on the 20-year record-keeping requirement for all gun sales in Bill C-71?

Of course it is – what other purpose would it serve?

There are only two ways to track down “Non-Restricted” firearms.

Police must either use some combination of sales and registration data or they must go to the doors of every single Possession and Acquisition Licence holder and search their homes.

Police lack the resources to search 2.2 million homes, solely based on the fact that a resident has a firearms licence. And, these “fishing expeditions” would almost certainly be struck down as unconstitutional.

That leaves the C-71 sales records mandated by that legislation, and the use of the former Long Gun Registry data.

Any use of the old Long Gun Registry data will be struck down as unconstitutional, but that doesn’t mean the government won’t try using it anyway under the maxim: “better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.”

Setting all these legal hurdles aside, who will the government send to collect your now-banned firearms?

Tactical Response Units Will Come For Your Guns

Liberals will say “a police officer,” but they don’t specify which type of police officer. This is by design.

Police Tactical Response Teams will likely be sent to pick up your guns.

“But isn’t this overkill?” you ask. “Isn’t this a massive waste of police resources?”

Of course it is, but there is no other alternative.

Police will not send a lone constable to pick up your “Prohibited” rifle simply because a gun is involved. For reasons we’ve never understood (and never will understand), police tend to view licensed, RCMP-vetted gun owners as more of a threat to their safety than drug-dealing gang members.

It’s nonsense, since we’re the most vetted civilians in our nation.

Whenever a firearm is involved, police instantly go into high alert.

For this reason, they will send a Tactical Response Unit to your door to collect your guns, and they will be armed with exactly the same guns the government says you are no longer permitted to own. (No, the irony of this is not lost on us.)

Nightmare Scenarios and Other Unintended Consequences

First of all, let us clearly state that our police officers are held in very high regard by the CSSA and the following is not intended to be an attack on them – in any way. But the Liberals will set the stage for accidents, mistakes and confrontations.

The list of nightmare scenarios is long, but we will only focus on three of them here today.

Nightmare Scenario 1

A man brings his “Prohibited” rifle to the front door, mistakenly thinking he is helping police do their job. When the Tactical Team arrives and knocks at his door, he opens the door, greets them, and then reaches for his rifle. The Tactical Team swarms him and, if he’s lucky, this licensed firearm owner will “only” sustain bruises and broken bones during the “high-risk takedown.” If he’s unlucky, he is shot and/or killed.

Nightmare Scenario 2

The Tactical Team arrives at the wrong address. The unwitting resident tells them he doesn’t own guns and explains they are at the wrong house.

The Tactical Team does not believe the hapless home owner and knocks him to the ground, handcuffs him and tosses him aside as they trash his home looking for non-existent firearms.

Or worse, this could get police officers killed.

Laval Police Sergeant Daniel Tessier died when the tactical team, relying on an illegal search warrant, botched the raid on the home of Basil Parasiris. Parasiris was acquitted because his belief that the lives of his family were threatened was deemed valid by the jury.

Nightmare Scenario 3

Trudeau said he will ban over 250,000 rifles if he is re-elected.

Even if we assume these are all owned by a small group of licensed firearm owners and each owns 25 soon-to-be-prohibited rifles (an absurd premise, to be sure), we’re talking about 10,000 tactical team deployments to seize these guns from law-abiding citizens.

That is a massive waste of scarce police resources focused on good guys, when it should be focused on violent criminals, drug dealers and gangs instead.

Worse, by sending tactical teams to over 10,000 homes, it’s a statistical certainty some unsuspecting and innocent people will be injured and/or killed by the very people who are supposed to protect them.

It’s also likely more police officers like Constable Daniel Tessier will be hurt by fear-filled gun owners who mistakenly believe the lives of their families are being threatened by criminal home invaders.

Tactical Teams assault the wrong address far too often (any time more than once.)

This is well-documented, but here are a few recent cases to remind us all that police officers are just as fallible and error-prone as any other Canadian citizen.

Tasha McCrae and her three children were the victims of “SWATting” – a term used for calling police and making false claims about a high-risk situation. Leduc RCMP Constable Bridget Morla said officers were called at about 2:39 p.m. to respond to a “high priority 911 call” in the city's Telford subdivision. The only “situation” was Tasha stepping out of the shower to find police threatening her life.

Dion Waniandy was tasered by Saskatoon Police. They later admitted they went to the wrong apartment.

Toronto City Police officers entered the apartment of 68-year-old Sharon McCrudden as part of a nationwide sweep of suspected drug dealers and gang members. They also went to the wrong address.

Vancouver Police brutally beat Yao Wei Wu after responding to a domestic abuse call. They went to the wrong address and beat up an innocent man.

In Arnprior, police lobbed a stun grenade into the wrong apartment, barged in and pointed their guns at Steven Carrigan, the wrong man. The stun grenade exploded on Carrigan’s son’s bed. His son was not in bed at the time, which is the only reason he’s still alive. Police had the audacity to claim “operational success.”

Abbotsford Police raided a 7-year-old child’s birthday party and shot the family dog in front of the children. They immediately claimed they didn’t know there were children present, a statement later proved false by testimony from their own officers.

In all these cases, thankfully, nobody was killed – but only by chance.

The odds of gun owners or police officers being killed or injured through one or more of these three scenarios are unacceptably high, not because police are thugs out to hurt people, but because everyone is so afraid when a firearm is involved that their fear and tension causes those on both sides to make fatal mistakes.

A tough question: What Is An “Acceptable” Death Toll for Trudeau’s Liberal Government?

“Prime Minister, how many police officers' lives are you willing to risk in order to collect these guns?”

“Minister Blair, how many Canadians are you willing to kill and injure in order to collect these guns?”

These are the questions Justin Trudeau, Bill Blair and Ralph Goodale all refuse to answer.

A few things to consider before you cast your ballot on October 21st.
