Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 5/1/2020 1:29:59 PM

Toronto—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday that Canada is banning the use and trade of assault-style weapons immediately. Trudeau cited numerous mass shootings in the country, including the killing of 22 people in Nova Scotia April 18 and 19. He announced the ban of over 1,500 models and variants of assault-style firearms, including two weapons used by the gunman as well as the AR-15 and other weapons that have been used in a number of mass shootings in the United States.(Snip) In the meantime, they can be exported, returned to manufacturers, and transported only to deactivate them or get rid of them.

Comments:

You can own them, but not use them or move them around. A slight of hand not unlike, "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor."

Blaming inanimate objects is not going to eliminate HATE. Guns don't hate, people do. Why not pass a law banning hate? Oh yeah, because its impossible to define hate-make have repercussions during elections. Much easier to blame guns. It's the LAZY way.

Ironically the smug Tories of Canada, who think they are enlightened liberals, are one click away from full on Nazis. Not really as big an exaggeration as one might think. For years Canadians haven't had free speech. Jordan Peterson has spent years of his life in court fighting for the basic right to speak to people as he chooses instead of being forced to ignore obvious genders. Their media is heavily censured by the Canadian government. They have no right to seek out private health care in Canada. If faced with a dire health problem, they often flee to the US or any country that allows medical care without rationing by a bunch of authoritarian politicians. Now everyone suffers for the act of a murderer. The Canadian leaders just made the entire country safer for criminals. Only fools think futures murders will be restrained by this punishment of innocent Canadians. Hitler would be approving of the job Canadian liberals have been doing for years to herd the silly residents who gave them these dictator powers. They are residents because citizens still have some amount of power over their government. That idea evaporated in Canada years ago. The lesson should be crystal clear to every American. Get off you couch and VOTE. Not for any rat or independent or third party. Only Republican and only until President Trump is out of office. Until he came along the lines were so blurred it sometimes did not matter. Love him or hate him, he has changed the political game for the better. It has never been so obvious who hates normals and who is ready to become the new Brownshirts.

Timothy McVeigh used fertilizer to mass murder over 150 people. A murderous heart will always find a way. Even Trudeau knows this won’t help but it’s an excuse to disarm the peasants.

Confiscation, effectively. Sure, you can keep it....but if you try to use it for anything, apparent even take it to a range, not legal. And what sort of chicken-blank stuff is not even saying what he used. Apparently a handgun. Canada is proof why having no Constitution means you have NO rights. Your rights are whatever your government says they are TODAY. And they WILL be less tomorrow, count on it.

I am reasonably certain that it is illegal to own a handgun. Now you are limited to a bolt action rifle or shot gun. Next they will outlaw both of these and Canada will have been disarmed. The words 'O Canada we stand on guard for thee' is now meaningless and should be removed from the National anthem.

Actually, #14, they have always been subjects of the Queen. We had quite a dust up about that issue in 1776 and the Canadians came down firmly on the side of "subjects, and proud to be one". We had to bleed a lot to become citizens. And subjects have only the rights that their betters say they have, and it can change daily. The closest thing that they have to any written rights is the Magna Carta, and if you check it out, it had zero, zip, absolutely nothing to do with the rights of the peasants, it was about the rights of the minor royals, barons and such, compared to the king. I don't know of any document which is stronger and more permanent than a "current statute" which permits ANYTHING for British, Australian and Canadian commoners. They absolutely do NOT have free speech now, no rights to firearms, and frankly all else is there just until the overlords decide to take it away. Like tomorrow, if they decide. We at least can, in theory, and often actually in practice, get a law repealed for being unconstitutional. No possibility there in the Commonwealth countries. No constitution, no rights, no recourse other than what we did in 1776, and I don't see Canadians doing any of that.

The Colt Python .357 Magnum, called by some the Rolls Royce of revolvers, originally produced between 1955 and 1999, has become a collector's item. Not long ago on gunbrokers' website I found a nearly new-in-box 1978 royal blue Python with 6" barrel. Asking price was $4,200. Such a deal! Colt has just reintroduced their Python in stainless steel--no royal blue yet--in barrel lengths of 4 1/4" and 6". The 4 1/4" barrel length is s concession to Canada, where (apparently) shorter barrel lengths are illegal. So the Canadian government hasn't taken their revolvers. Yet. Poor folks. If you have any friends who shoot and are Democrats, they need to know that their party is the party of disarmament and gun confiscation. Approximately 18,000,000 sport rifles have been sold in America since 1990. If Democrats take the White House along with the House and Senate, sport rifles will be banned. Ban the Democrats instead.

I watch lots of the Alaska reality shows, most of which are fake. But in most of them, the people carry AR 15 rifles - lightweight, lotas of fire power, good for defense against bears. I would imagine that their Canadian counterparts in northern provinces carry AR 15s as well. This could wind up as big a fiasco as the Canadian government's attempt to register all firearms. It was a billion dollar flop. most gunowners ignored the government.

What is an assault style weapon? Is it a weapon that looks mean and like it can shoot really fast like a "machine gun"? People look at guns like Pit Bull dogs. They look mean and like they can do a lot of damage to you and have a way worse reputation than they deserve. 99.99% of assault style weapons are just normal guns that look mean just like 99.99 % of Pit Bulls are just normal house pets that are more likely to lick you to death than bite you.

Good thing he only banned “military-grade assault weapons”. There’s not a privately owned AR-15 that is “military grade”. “Military grade” assault rifles are all automatic-fire weapons…..something the AR-15’s are not. And a criminal (someone who should not have had the weapon) used the weapon in the crime. How does punishing the rest of the country stop that?

To make matters worse, they said, is the European Defense Initiative is a signal of support for U.S. allies against Russian aggression, and cutting the money is dangerous. “Once again, the Trump administration is putting domestic political considerations ahead of national security,
