I’ve been rather busy with other stuff lately.
A pop into a private forum tipped me to this site. Some comments also showed that after the Moderators at the above site had approved the comments they later went in and removed censored out opposing view points.
Sooooo. Let’s cut through the garbage.
The Conservative Attempt to Eliminate the Gun Registry

The Canadian Parliament adjourned on Friday until September 14th. This means, until session resumes at least, that Canada’s Firearms Act will remain as it’s currently written, and that the gun registry will continue to be used by police as a preventative measure in protecting women and children from domestic violence. During the final days of session, it was unclear whether an election might be called; under Canada’s Parliamentary system, a no confidence vote against a fiscal bill introduced by the minority party in charge, the Conservatives, would result in an election and all of the bills currently under consideration would in effect die.
Confused by Canada’s political system? Me too, but what I do know is that an election was averted, thereby maintaining the ability by Parliament to discuss those bills introduced to eliminate the gun registry (C-391 and S-5) come September. C-301, another bill that had been introduced during session, was dropped from the House of Common’s calendar because on two separate occasions the author of the bill, MP Garry Breitkreuz, was a no show for scheduled floor debates. C-301 was controversial even to some Conservatives, as it included a laundry list of changes to the Firearm’s Act, not just an elimination of the registry. As a result, Breitkreuz refused to debate the bill and successfully eliminated any future possibility of discussion. C-391, authored by MP Candice Hoeppner, was introduced as an alternative to Breitkreuz’s bill, but session ended before it could make its way to the floor for debate. Hoeppner, following Friday’s summer adjournment, issued a press release claiming that opposition party members deliberately tried preventing debate and a vote on the bill. Perhaps those who Hoeppner claims attempted to kill the bill in committee had read any of the most recent Canadian newspaper articles on the subject. The following are two of the most recent:
It seems that although statistics illustrating the registry’s effectiveness are plentiful, with the help of MP Candice Hoeppner, discussion regarding the gun registry will continue into the summer, with the Conservatives, sportsmen, and the gun lobby united, fighting to eliminate the registry on account of what they claim to be a violation of their freedoms and a burden on tax payers. As one of only four countries with harmonized gun control and domestic violence laws, Hoeppner and the Conservatives should focus on illustrating the importance of protecting women and children through gun registries rather then on eliminating Canada’s, which does nothing to prevent law-abiding citizens from owning firearms.
I will keep this brief and to the point.
Bill C-301 and Bill C-391 HAD NO PROVISIONS THAT WOULD REDUCE THE SAFETY OF ANYONE.
LICENSED….YES…LICENSED FIREARMS OWNERS IN CANADA ARE CHECKED DAILY THROUGH AN RCMP SYSTEM TO ENSURE ANYONE WITH A POSSESSION AND ACQUISITION LICENSE (PAL) HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING THAT MERITS A SUSPENSION OF THEIR PAL.
THE GARBAGE REGISTRY DOES NOT PREVENT ANYONE FROM BEING HURT BY THE MISUSE OF A FIREARM.
LICENSING OF A FIREARMS OWNER HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH TRYING TO ENSURE THAT RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUALS CAN POSSESS, OWN AND USE FIREARMS.
VALERIE GIGNAC, A CONSTABLE FOR QUEBEC, DIED BECAUSE A JUDGE GAVE A FIREARM BACK TO AN INDIVIDUAL THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE HAD IT.
THE FOUR MOUNTIES THAT DIED AT MAYERTHORPE WERE NOT PROTECTED BY THE REGISTRY FROM THEIR KILLER.
IF YOU WANT TO EAT UP THE ANTI’S BULLCRAP WITH A SPOON AND GET THEIR BULLCRAP FROM A GROUP THAT CENSORS OUT OPPOSING VIEWS OR OPINIONS?
YOU ARE THE PROBLEM BECAUSE, IF YOU ARE LAPPING UP THEIR DISHONESTY AND MISLEADING CLIES AND ARE INCAPABLE OF TAKING ALL AVAILABLE INFORMATION AND MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION FOR YOURSELVES, YOU…YES…YOU ARE NOT HELPING TO MAKE OR FIND EFFECTIVE AND RESPONSIBLE SOLUTIONS.
WAKE THE HELL UP. I KNOW YOU AREN’T STUPID. YOU KNOW IN YOUR GUT THAT THERE ARE PROBLEMS AND YOU WANT THEM SOLVED. SO DO I. ALLOWING DISHONESTY, CORRUPTION, MORAL DECAY AND THE DESTRUCTION OF FAMILY AND COUNTRY UNDER THE CURRENT DIRECTION WE HAVE BEEN DRAGGED IN SINCE 1968….WILL NOT SOLVE IT.
THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO KEEP CANADA AFLOAT FOR ALL THE ECONOMIC TURMOIL WE ARE IN. THEY NEED TO CUT WASTE AND USELESS PROGRAMS. THE REGISTRY IS THAT WASTE.
BILL C-391 WILL NOT MAKE YOU LESS SAFE. NO MATTER WHAT THESE ADVOCACY GROUPS SAY.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THEIR EXISTANCE DEPENDS ON PEOPLE BEING VICTIMS? IF THERE WERE NO…OK, REALITY SAYS THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A VICTIM OF SOMETHING.
IF THERE WERE LESS VICTIMS? THEY WOULDN’T HAVE ANY REASON TO EXIST. TO SUCK THE TEAT OF THE CANADIAN TAXPAYER FROM THE FUNDING THEY GET FOR THEIR PROGRAMS. THAT IS BAD BUSINESS.
INSTEAD OF EDUCATING PEOPLE ON THEIR RIGHTS TO SELF-DEFENSE AND THE USE OF THE APPROPRIATE TOOLS FOR IT. THEY DON’T WANT REASONABLE PEOPLE TO BE INVOLVED IN THE MOST INTIMATE DECISION A PERSON CAN MAKE. THE DECISION TO ENSURE ONE’S SAFETY AND SECURITY OF ONE’S SELF AND ONE’S LOVED ONES.
YOU WILL GET COOING AND CODDLY-TALK. YOU WILL BE CONVINCED THAT IT’S SOMEONE ELSE’ RESPONSIBILITY TO GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY. THE SUPREME COURTS OF CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES DETERMINED THAT THE POLICE (THE GOVERNMENT) DOES NOT HAVE THAT RESPONSIBILTY TO THE INDIVIDUAL.
LOOK IN THE CRIMINAL CODE OF CANADA. SECTION 2. DEFINITION OF A PEACE OFFICER. THAT’S WHAT OUR POLICEMEN ARE…KEEPERS OF THE PEACE…AND THE OFFICIAL RECORD KEEPERS OF HOW AND WHY YOU DIED BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, CARE TO KNOW OR TOOK THE TIME TO EXERCISE YOUR INALIENABLE RIGHT TO LIFE.
IF YOU THINK FOR A SECOND THAT THESE ADVOCACY GROUPS CARE ABOUT YOU? YOU ARE GRAVELY MISTAKEN. YOU ARE A TICKET TO MORE MONEY SO THAT THEY HAVE A PAYCHEQUE.
