Subject: A Mountie's view on Paul Martin and gun control
<table id="INCREDIMAINTABLE" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr> <td id="INCREDITEXTREGION" style="font-size: 12pt; cursor: auto; font-family: Arial;" width="100%"> A worthy read for all regardless of your position on guns.
From a retired RCMP member, and yes he has been shot at.
You just don't get it, do you Paul?? Halifax has been deemed the most
violent city (per capita) in the country, Toronto is out of control, our
youth are dying, our elderly are being killed by our youth, taxi drivers
are stabbed to death on Christmas Day and you pass out a bunch of lip service
to Canadians and suggest that you will ban handguns.
It has nothing to do with banning handguns and calling in all the legally
registered handguns in the country. Do you realize how much money it will
cost should you reimburse everyone for the handguns?
Do you realize that we have had to register handguns since 1934?
Do you realize that means handguns have been registered for 72 years?
Do you realize that handguns/firearms were not a problem until the
Liberals took over running this country? Why would you suggest that calling in
handguns will solve the problem?
What will solve the problem of violence in this once great country of ours
is a Justice system with some backbone.
What will solve the problem of violence in the once great country is
social programs that promote people taking responsibility for their action rather
than always finding someone else to blame.
There is no deterrent for gun smugglers, drug pushers, murderers (adult or
youth), rapists, child molesters, so on and so on. Your intention is to
make all law abiding gun owners pay for the actions of "punks", "misguided
youth", "young offenders", whatever you wish to call them.
Don't pass legislation or enact mandatory sentencing that makes them
responsible for their actions!
No, No!! Instead defer the blame away from the shooter and put the blame
on the gun.
Defer the blame away from the shooter and put it on a society that has
failed this "poor child".
Don't put the blame on the apathy of the communities that these murderers
come from but rather blame the authorities who try their best only to be
condemned for being overzealous or racist.
No, No - blame the gun!!!!!
Now I ask you the following. Would your proposal to ban all handguns be an
admission, by yourself and your party, that the three billion dollar
Canadian Gun Registry has failed.
After all you did tell us that the gun registry would make gun owners more
responsible and make our streets safer. Since the gun registry was
implemented, violence involving firearms, especially with our youth, has
been steadily on the rise.
What about the violence involving youths and knives?
What about the violence involving youth who savagely beat a young girl and
then drown her in a river in BC?
What about violence involving our youth who drugged their mother and drown
her in the bathtub in Ont.?
What will you ban to stop this type of crime?
The youth of this country laugh at our Justice System!
The youth of this country know that the bleeding heart liberals, wannabe
Dr. Spocks, John Howards, Elizabeth Frys,
irresponsible too-busy-with-my-own-life parents will coddle them and
deflect the blame to some level of government, the education system, the law
enforcement system -anywhere but on the person who committed the crime!!!
I could go on, but I know you don't care and will sacrifice this country and
our youth so that you appear to be politically correct and sensitive.
To hell with our youth and the Justice System, you keep focused on things
like the gun registry, same sex marriage, paying off Quebec to stay part
of Canada at the expense of the rest of the Nation.
Hopefully Canadians will make you pay this time around and take THEIR country back!!
CC: The copy was sent so that the other perspective leaders will know how
at least one Canadian feels (and I know for certain many others) about
where Ottawa's focus should be.
The justice system is in the sewer and needs rescue immediately!!!
I had a buddy take his pop rivit gun to the RCMP in protest.....they didnt want to register it...lol (they did not take it very well) so he took his staple gun.....needless to say he is not high on their list.....dumb cops.
I have an old sling, but maybe not.
WHat about a potato gun?
A glue gun?
What about 2x4's. My uncle was working as a nurse on a northern Manitoba reserve and the weapon of choice up there was a 2x4. Maybe we should register them as well?
