Careful where you point your muzzl…finger.

It’s the NRA’s fault. CNN says so.

CNN also got busted by the NRA for faking a news story several years ago and were called out for it on national television. Revenge much?

We won’t worry, for the moment, about the veteran CNN producer that now leads a Students Against Guns thingy with funding from whomever…

Buuuuuut, I digress.

For my friends in Canada? Pay attention here. This kind of smear campaign knows no borders and you best observe and inoculate yourselves and others to deal with it’s inevitable outbreak in Canada. Yes. It’s been tried on one Canadian Org over a “firearm prize”. That was small potatoes that was fought off. Practice, if you will, for something on a larger scale. Like the current legacy media circus.

I strongly suggest you read the following link and think about what’s going on around you, concerning your pawns…sorry…your children. You might want to get with others and see if they share the same observations.

Sadly, it is proven that those who desire the monopoly on the Use of Force can’t be everywhere when needed. Trust me, a massive percentage of them want to be everywhere to help. Reality is that they can’t. I learned that 30+ years ago at 19, policing an Establishment.

Broward isn’t “new”. It reminds me of a place, a long time ago. The level and ferocity of the current deflection attack, by it’s participants, is “new-ish” and will probably escalate to “hold my beer and watch this”…

Using children, minorities or disadvantaged persons as shields also isn’t new. That they are used, as innocents always are, is shameful. When they are used for financial gain and an unintended consequence is grave harm? Not good…


Broward County Sheriff’s Office Did Not “Miss Warning Signs” or Make “Mistakes”…

Have we seen this before? Probably an unfortunate coincidence.

Firearms owners are leaders.

Let’s go outside the box…Net benefit to Canadian Society. Pt 1

Civilian firearms ownership has an unrecognized benefit to Canadian society.

All military personnel receive firearms training to some degree.

Look at it as “Soldier First. Tradesman Second”. Any serviceman can be sent to the “front” and form a “provisional/ad hoc/stop gap” measure. Ex. During the Battle of the Bulge; cooks, clerks, storesmen and others formed the line in order to try and halt the German Army’s advance or at least slow them down enough to form a solid defense and allow General Patton to manouevre his Army to attack the German’s flank and defeat the attack.

No, they were not ideal troops. They were troops nonetheless and deployed to prevent a defeat and prolonging of the Second World War. Ultimately that saved lives.

Let’s step waaaaaaaay back into history. At least Western Civilization. We’ll skip over historical examples like King Leonidas and the Spartans.

In days of old when knights were bold…the citizenry was called upon to form the Army. It continued through history since as it did even before the concept of knights existed. Right back to the times that man formed primitive tribes and simply wielded sticks and stones.

Countries that allow civilians to own firearms receive a cost-free benefit. Well, definately a cost reduction when it comes to National Defense.

Volunteers for service that have previous firearms experience won’t require as in-depth training as a recruit that has never been exposed to handling a firearm.

Volunteers for service have previously developed marksmanship skills and safe-handling skills.

We know of nations that it’s citizens formed a resistance or partisan role that harrassed and aided in the defeat of their occupiers.

Switzerland has an active civilian shooting program. Besides the terrain being inhospitable to an attacker; the citizenry would make any attacker pay handily by re-inforcing the standing army.

The United States? Well that’s pretty much a given. The US was born of citizens that formed a line and pushed. They understood the possession of firearms is necessary. They entrenched it in their laws. We’ll ignore for a moment the cowardice and ignorance coupled with nefarious foreign interests have brought repeated attacks on that Right.

What does that mean to Canadians by having responsible citizens own and use firearms in Canada?

You realize less government expenditure and the government has access to citizens who can fill jobs that require competancy, confidence and skill with firearms.

You have citizens that in a dire emergency could fill the ranks. If it’s that big an emergency? They will need skill with firearms. Yes. That is generally accepted to be quite unlikely. But it’s nice to know that option physically exists.

The bottom line? Less taxes out of your pockets.

CIA World Fact Book – CANADA

CIA World Fact Book – CANADA(explanation/definitions)

While it is a “CIA” compilation, the fact is the CIA is an Intelligence function of a nation other than Canada. The US is an ally to Canada. However there are nations that are not as friendly towards Canada. We have a vast wealth of resources and many nations today are actively pursuing resources. Some of the more well-armed foreign nations when examining other nations assess the military capabilities of other nations.

As you can see from the links. Citizens are assessed and factored into plans from a military perspective. You can bet your hiney that civilians that own firearms are accounted for. The more of them there are? The more of a deterrent exists against openly hostile actions.

When you think about reports like Sidewinder and that the anti-gun movement in Canada has support from outside Canada’s borders (such as IANSA and the UN)? A question should form in your mind.

Do Canadians really want excessive gun control when firearms have never really been a problem and have only “really become so” because people with interests outside our borders say so and the media has only trumpeted the issue because some “citizens” within Canada have identifiable connections to those from outside our borders?

From outside the box. Civilian firearms ownership (any type and class) is a net benefit to Canadians.

From outside the box. Civilian firearms ownership is a part of defense that the taxpayer spends ZERO tax dollars on.

From outside the box. Civilians firearms owners won’t bother other Canadians. But we do concern those outside our borders.

From outside the box. That’s a good thing for Canadians that choose not to own firearms or participate in the shooting sports.

You’re welcome.

How much money do sportsmen put in to the economy?

Sportsmen are an economic force

Talk about big bucks and most sportsmen think hunting a whitetail or mule deer with a trophy rack.

But big bucks know no season to outdoor retailers — and hunters and anglers have plenty of opportunities to create lots of bang at winter and spring trade shows and banquets.

Upcoming events include the 62nd Omaha Boat Sports and Travel Show at Qwest Center Omaha and Bass Pro Shops Spring Fishing Classic in Council Bluffs this week.

The Omaha show opens Thursday and runs through Sunday. It attracts tens of thousands of people who troll past displays of fishing tackle, North American hunting and fishing destinations, resorts, lodges and camps, camping equipment, hunting gear and boats and marine equipment.

The Bass Pro Shops event begins Friday and continues through March 15. Visitors will find new fishing products, live demonstrations, boat shows and events for kids and families. About 150,000 people are expected to attend the 17-day event at Bass Pro Shops, said Jim Goff, store manager.

“Some of these same people will spend money at other area merchants for hotels, gas, restaurants and other retailers — all part of the ripple effect sportsmen help bring to an area,” he said.

The Congressional Sportsman’s Foundation says that if the $76 billion sportsmen spend nationally on hunting and fishing were the gross domestic product of a country, sportsmen would rank 57th out of 181 countries.

In many states, sportsmen spend more money, support more jobs and pay more taxes than most industries and attractions in the state, the report said.

In Iowa, annual spending by 518,000 hunters and anglers ($661 million) is more than the cash receipts from dairy products and hay — two of the state’s top agricultural commodities ($645 million). Sportsmen support more jobs (12,000) in Iowa than Principal Life Insurance (10,000), one of the state’s largest employers.

In Nebraska, annual spending by 234,000 hunters and anglers ($470 million) is more than the cash receipts from wheat and dairy products ($405 million), the foundation said. There are nearly as many Nebraska sportsmen as residents of Lincoln, estimated population 241,000.

Clearly, the economic impact of sportsmen is a force to be reckoned with, Goff said.

One of Canada’s Laws…

52. Sabotage

(1) Every one who does a prohibited act for a purpose prejudicial to



is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years. 


(2) In this section, “prohibited act” means an act or omission that

(a) impairs the efficiency or impedes the working of any vessel, vehicle, aircraft, machinery, apparatus or other thing; or


(b) causes property, by whomever it may be owned, to be lost, damaged or destroyed.

(4) No person does a prohibited act within the meaning of this section by reason only that he attends at or near or approaches a dwelling-house or place for the purpose only of obtaining or communicating information.

It’s such an interesting section with checks and balances. And just a tad vague enough that it’s interpretation can go either way.

I wonder if “communicating information” that is misleading or outright lies is protected under (4)?

I wonder if someone who is not a Canadian citizen and wanders in an out of Canada is exempt? I would hardly think so.

I guess someone would have to be charged in order to find out how the courts in Canada would decide.

A complaint filed with authorities or the gathering of sufficient evidence and presented to judge by a private citizen? Would get that ball rolling.

I wonder if those complaints, filed separately, would be handled as separate instances and individual charges or lumped into one instance if it was one alledged offender?

Repeated communications would make for a hell of a stack of charges if treated separately and if a person was found guilty of each charge? A judge in a bad mood could hand out sentences that could be ordered served consecutively.

One after the other. 10 years + 10 years + 10 years + 10 years, etc, etc, etc.

Our judges can be rather lienient, at their whim. There are proud Canadians in their ranks that could take a dim view to non-Canadians acting in such a manner in Canada.

Now, of course there is speculation on my part and a lawyer might advise that it’s unlikely to happen.

But times have changed. What once was unlikely, may become likely.

The law is on the books.

It doesn’t mean it won’t be used if someone comes and messes with Canada and it’s citizens.

(b) the safety or security of the naval, army or air forces of any state other than Canada that are lawfully present in Canada,

(a) the safety, security or defence of Canada, or
