NDP ad backfires with use of wrong gun

November 29, 2011

Make no mistake about it.  The NDP do not understand firearms.  The NDP does not believe in the right to own a firearm for any reason at all.  They will grit their teeth and lie to appease old socialsts in rural areas if needed.  These people absolutey hate you for owning a gun.  These people believe that if you own a gun you are automatically a danger to them.  These people will not be happy until we are all as helpless in life as they are.

The NDP are switching guns as they come out firing at the Tories.

The party is mounting a billboard campaign in three cities this week attacking the Conservative government’s move to scrap the long-gun registry. But now they’re rushing to change the graphics before the billboards go up.

The sheer ignorance of the anti-gun movement.

November 4, 2011

Anti-gun control freaks: They make cry-baby emotional decisions based on ignorance.  There’s a great bit of debate from the national post to read that illustrated this.  Below are two great quotes:

McParland: But we’re not talking about all guns. I keep asking what the legitimate use is for a sniper’s rifle in modern Canada, since it doesn’t seem to be for killing bears or squirrels, but no one seems to be able to say.

Gurney: A sniper rifle is generally a standard hunting rifle (a Remington 700 or a Winchester 1904 are common examples) with a telescopic sight bored into the top of the receiver. And they are used in hunting. Whether the scope helps or hinders your hunting depends on a lot of factors, such as range, foliage and chosen prey. A rifle with a big honkin’ scope wouldn’t be useful for squirrels, but for bears and larger animals.

McParland above is your classic anti-gun moron.  Has absolutely no idea on the subject, but is desperate to control and regulate it.  They love words like “assualt rifle” and “sniper rifle.”  Then of course, there’s the classic “why do you need that?”

Lorne Gunter: The Liberals tried very, very hard to make the registry work as a method of gun control. It was not merely a political exercise. They went so far are requiring that every registered gun in the country have a unique identifying number. If there wasn’t a serial number stamped on the firearm, a permanent sticker that could never be removed had to be placed on it. Also, much of the $2-billion cost overrun was the result of how thoroughly the Firearms Program checked out potential gun owners and how complicated the computer software was to run all the background checks and firearms sales and transfers. The registry was never just a PR effort.

There’s another point missed in this discussion: the concept of “need” is antithetic to democracy where the citizens are sovereign. No one needs a car that goes more than 110 kms an hours, because that is the highest speed limit in the country. So should any of us who want to drive more than a Smart Car or Fiat have to cap in hand to an “official” and explain our need for something more before we are granted a license for one? Many more Canadians — thousands more — are killed by speeding automobiles each year than by high-powered rifles that are beyond what farmers “need” to kill coyotes.

More guns does not mean more murder

Pretty plain, fits common sense, and Liberals still won’t get it.

A blast from the past: Only idiots and tyrants support gun control

August 3, 2011

What happens when you outlaw guns is that only the outlaws will have guns.
Read this here:

One year after gun-owners were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed, including semi-automatic .22 rifles and shotguns, a program costing the government over 500 million dollars, the results are in…

A dramatic increase in criminal activity has been experienced. Gun control advocates respond “Just wait… we’ll be safer… you’ll see…”.

OBSERVABLE FACT, AFTER 12 MONTHS OF DATA:

  • Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2%
  • Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6%
  • Australia-wide, armed-robberies are up 44% (yes, FORTY-FOUR PERCENT)
  • In the state of Victoria, homicides-with-firearms are up 300%
  • Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in homicides-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
  • Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in armed-robbery-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
  • There has been a dramatic increase in breakins-and-assaults-of- the-elderly
  • At the time of the ban, the Prime Minister said “self-defense is not a reason for owning a firearm
  • From 1910 to present, homicides in Australia had averaged about 1.8-per-100,000 or lower, a safe society by any standard.
  • The ban has destroyed Australia’s standings in some international sport shooting competitions
  • The membership of the Australian Sports Shooting Association has risen to 112,000, a 200% increase, in response to the ban and as an attempt to organize against further controls, which are expected.
  • Australian politicians are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no improvement in “safety” has been observed after such monumental effort and expense was successfully expended in “ridding society of guns”. Their response has been to “wait longer”.
