Man - I dislike politics greatly, but Canada what happened?
Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced effective immediately that assualt-style weapons will be banned. His actions are the response to the Nova Scotia mass shooting that killed 22 people.

They are a bunch of pinko's up there. They are telling red blooded Americans
to stay away. I was in a Taxi Cab in Ontario and the cab driver said "oh you're
from America where everyone has guns" I said "yes! last free country in the
world".

What is happening is the left Liberal Prime Minister is using the corna virus and a shooting tragedyto his advantage to take the right to own firearms away from honest vetted citzens .
Petition to the Prime Minister
Whereas:
  • The Prime Minister’s firearms confiscation regime, undemocratically imposed without debate during a pandemic while Parliament is suspended, is an assault on Canadian democracy;
  • Canada already has stringent regulations and comprehensive legislation related to firearms ownership;
  • Canada has millions of responsible, law-abiding firearms owners;
  • Data shows that the confiscation regime would not stop firearms violence in Canada;
  • The majority of firearms used in violent crimes are obtained illegally and/or are smuggled into Canada;
  • Legal firearms owners are strong advocates for measures that will actually prevent firearms violence;
  • Legal firearms owners in Canada are vetted on a daily basis through the CPIC system;
  • The Prime Minister is using the emotion of the tragedy in Nova Scotia to impose this confiscation regime even though all of the firearms the murderer used were illegally obtained;
  • The list of firearms to be confiscated is arbitrary and not based on functionality;
  • “Assault rifles”, or fully automatic firearms, have been banned in Canada since 1977;
  • Criminals who have illegally obtained firearms will not be impacted by this confiscation regime; and
  • The federal government is abandoning evidenced-based decision making as it relates to preventing firearm violence.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to immediately scrap his government’s May 1, 2020, Order in Council decision related to confiscating legally owned firearms and instead pass legislation that will target criminals, stop the smuggling of firearms into Canada, go after those who illegally acquire firearms, and apologize to legal firearms owners in Canada.

the above is the from the conservative side
next they will be after my handguns too

Looks like many people have never learned from history what can happen when mental illness or other overtakes a human being. The outcomes are never good in the long run and the only way anything like this could ever work is when mankind learns to get along with one another. Outcome doesn't look good to me. Another Socialistic Government run country destined to fail in the long run. Same thing is being pushed right here in the good ol U.S.A. Glad I don't have that many years left to experience such a terrible state of affairs. That's my take on it.

Do not forget these were the people that liked King George & Crown and stayed with the British during our Revolution. Even though they have now their own country, they still like the King and all that. They are nice people, I had friends in British Columbia who wish it was the 51st state in the U.S.

To the businesses that need stimulus they need to sign up for climate change action, so to help save you business you have to sell you soul . Way to many new Canadians let in on our dime and no contributing to the broken economy , not being vetted upon arrival . Veterans and senoirs getting the shaft while the new trash they let in gets the spoils . I will stop venting but it is that bad up here . USA folks should take notice ,you do not want this!

Many years ago I used to go to Canada fishing for a few weeks every summer. The place was
beautiful and so were the people. What the hell happened?

Liberal changes -new people ,new policy ,new laws . Only good for the urban masses that want want want . Land is still beautiful ,people not so much . We have 37 million people country wide , last year they let in about 1 million "new Canadians " . These people are different races ,ideas ,religion ,not wanting to merge with and become Canadians as us old stock . Preferring to be their own culture with the safety of Canada and its benefits . The melting pot idea of becoming a Canadian is gone . The Liberal government takes all the minority groups and puts all there needs before the old stock . 2/3 's of Canada did not vote for this Liberal PM Trudeau but he still wins as the election in pushed by the urban centers. These urban centers are being riddled with gang and gun crime ,99% of this crime is from these new people . So now the vetted Canada gun owners that are strictly regulated are getting the fall out . The crime dudes get to keep there guns ! No difference to them. But the legal gun owner is the target as this seems like a good thing to do as the urban masses believes in the government. For the next upcoming election the conservative party ( pro Canada,pro -oil ,pro guns, -anti criminals, anti mass immigration) may not have a chance as this Liberal not true to Canada base is growing.This new Canada may be the future and it is sickening !

This is why it's so important to get out and VOTE in November. We have to keep our people in office.The Libs do not have the best interest for our country, so KEEP THEM OUT.

That's what happens when you elect communists to power. Trudeau is nothing but a pretty boy communist. Phuck him.

Brad Skinner, thanks for that vent, so sad, I too can remember the Canada of old, we are lucky we don't have a dictator or the form of government that allows it.

The better news is our range is reopening after covid -19 this Tuesday , so hopefully back to PPC every Monday night moving forward . No new handgun laws yet so my 1911's can still play . The ar15 (47) and the beretta storm 9mm I used for PCC can never see light of day again.
