I am a Canadian. I happened upon your website not too long ago and enjoy reading your blog – keep up the great work.Reading this particular piece, about ‘no one wanting to take your guns away’, i find i need to add my two cents if you’ll take it. As you might or might not know, our ‘gun control’ laws in Canada are pretty much useless. They were a knee jerk reaction from a political party looking for votes. They are a major headache for law abiding hunters and shooting enthusiasts. No one bothered to tell the politicians that criminals don’t worry much about firearm acquisition certificates or gun registration.
Confiscation is EXACTLY what your anti-rights supporters are looking to accomplish. If not today, then tomorrow. I am living through an environment right now where a certain model firearm is okay today, and deemed unfit tomorrow, and confiscated by the feds without any compensation for your property.
Do not kid yourself into thinking there is some higher, loftier objective – what ever law they put forth, however nice they want to coat it, it will open the door to other legislation that will eventually lead to confiscation.
Your government is reacting in a knee jerk fashion. It is plain and simple – its scary how it mimics what we went through. Whatever headway they make today into gun control legislation will lead to more and more.
Now is not the time to let your guard down. Good luck!
