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.

Ottawa delivers freedom to farmers over protests of Wheat Board

September 16, 2011

Finally, Canada has a federal agriculture minister who understands why a government monopoly over prairie wheat and barley marketing is incompatible with democratic rights.

Monday, the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) released the results of a rigged plebiscite it held this summer among grain growers – a plebiscite designed to show how much farmers still love the board – and the response of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz was spot on.

The Conservative government has announced it will move this fall to repeal the CWB’s monopoly over wheat and barley grown for human consumption in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and northeastern B.C. This prompted the board (which cannot imagine life without its monopoly power) to ask western wheat and barley growers whether they wanted to retain the monopoly or move to a fully open market. Among wheat growers, 62% voted for the monopoly. Among barley growers, just 51% did.

This prompted wheat board chairman, Allen Oberg to proclaim that the federal government is “out of touch with farmers.” He declared his group’s plebiscite is “the deepest expression of all of what farmers really want and the minister should listen.”

To which Mr. Ritz replied “No expensive survey can trump the individual right of farmers to market their own grain.”

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”.

New Ronald Reagan Statue for Hungary

July 4, 2011

Less than five years after erecting a bust of America’s 40th president in a park, Hungary’s capital is honoring Reagan with a full statue in Freedom Square, just a couple blocks from parliament and home to the U.S. Embassy.

Can’t have enough Reagan statues.

John Lennon Would Have Voted For Reagan

July 4, 2011

http://www.torontosun.com/2011/06/28/lennon-was-a-closet-republican-assistant

He says, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter.

Because that’s how much everyone hated Jimmy Carter.

THIS MUCH!

And they loved Reagan this much…

How it’s done. Brad Wall to SGEU.

June 25, 2011

 

Brad Wall once again sends a childish and selfish union back to work.  Not with force, but the assurance there of.

Our government has a duty to help those affected by this year’s flooding.  This includes ensuring that we live up to our obligation to provide Crop Insurance services and coverage at this time.  Therefore, if I do not receive your assurance that this strike will end within 24 hours, action will be taken to protect the interests of the province and of flood victims.

I look forward to your response.
