Canada Bans Handgun Sales in Bid to 'Reduce Gun Violence' in the Country




There are approximately 1.1 million handguns already in Canada, meaning Mr. Trudeau’s desire to “remove these deadly weapons from our communities” means the Mounties are going to be very busy grabbing guns. Or, the prime minister was just speaking metaphorically.

The Canadian government said it’s seen a drastic rise in the number of guns in the country over the last decade, with 70% more handguns in Canada than there were in 2010. The gun freeze was implemented as another gun-control bill was working its way through the Canadian parliament — what the government says will be the strongest gun-control measure in more than 40 years.
The bill, introduced in May, proposes revoking firearms licenses for people involved in domestic violence or criminal harassment cases, providing law enforcement with more tools to investigate firearms crimes, and additional measures to prevent gun smuggling and trafficking. Canada has already expanded background checks.


The correlation is obvious. People want guns because they don’t feel safe. Duh. It is not a political statement to own a gun in Canada. To some, it’s a question of life and death.

While Canada has sounded the alarm on gun violence, its rate of gun violence is still relatively low compared to its southern neighbor. There are far more mass shootings in the United States: more than 500 and counting in 2022 alone, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
In 2020, 277 people were killed by a firearm in Canada, at a rate of .73 per 100,000 people, according to Canada’s national statistics office. That same year in the United States, more than 19,000 people were killed at the hands of gun violence at a rate of 5.9 per 100,000 people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

This is something I take issue with, based on how it is defined. We actually DON'T have many mass shootings depending on how you define it, although seriously, there shouldn't be any - and despite what you've heard in the news, it actually does happen elsewhere - and to much greater frequency IF you use the weak definition we use in the United States - which tends to use the term to describe any mass shooting of persons more than a certain number.

To you and me, a "mass shooting" is when a lone and disturbed perp gets a gun and begins shooting random strangers for no discernible purpose except carnage and mayhem.

But most of the mass shootings listed are drug related and innocents killed are - sadly - collateral damage. If there weren't gangs and turf wars and drug related violence, those numbers would be MUCH SMALLER.

I realize it results in tragic death nonetheless - but there's a difference between a crazed lunatic or a deranged teen with a gun shooting out of rage - and a drug related driveby. They're extremely violent - but they don't waste bullets walking into a nightclub killing for no reason.

WHY do I bring this up? Because when you define "mass shooting" no more than, "lots of people shot" - they do happen everywhere.

You know those gang & drug mass shootings are the ones the media ignore. They wait for one involving white people.

Actually this is what is so exasperating about media coverage - they do TOTALLY ignore the drivebys and drug related violence, and I am guessing it's either so commonplace it is not considered newsworthy (BTW - LOCAL NEWS *always* covers this - national news never does) or it doesn't fit the narrative of how safe cities are.

So the message everyone "gets" is, guns are bad, but only lone, crazy white lunatics are doing it.

Seriously. Do you know how many mass shootings there have been in the Ukraine and/or Russia (depending on whose maps you favor) this year?

As Canada Prepares to Confiscate Guns, Some Provinces Rebel Against the Policy



These new anti-gun measures were proposed but not passed until after the 2021 Canadian federal election, where Trudeau’s government hung onto power. One of their promises is to enact stricter gun control laws. The rough draft of the proposal called for a voluntary gun buyback policy, a fancy word for confiscation. Now, fresh off an election win, it’s a mandatory act, though some provinces will not assist in the effort. Trudeau’s gun seizure agenda has led to a further straining of relationships between the capital, Ottawa, and the rest of the country it would seem (via Washington Post):

After a gunman rampaged across rural Nova Scotia in 2020, killing 22 people in Canada’s worst mass killing, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau banned some 1,500 makes and models of “military-grade” assault-style firearms and pledged to buy them back from owners.
Now, as Canada’s Liberal government prepares to launch the first phase of the mandatory buyback, several provinces and territories say they won’t help.
The most strident opponents, including the United Conservative Party government in Alberta, are suggesting the Royal Canadian Mounted Police “refuse to participate.” Tyler Shandro, the province’s justice minister, declared the buyback was not “an objective, priority or goal” of the province or its Mounties. Alberta, he said, is “not legally obligated to provide resources for it.”
Marco Mendicino, Canada’s public safety minister, has cast Alberta’s “reckless” position as a “political stunt.” But Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick have also balked at using “scarce RCMP resources” for the program.
“New Brunswick’s bottom line is this: RCMP resources are spread thin as it is,” said Kris Austin, the province’s public safety minister. “We have made it clear to the government of Canada that we cannot condone any use of those limited resources, at all, in their planned buyback program.”
The dispute is one of several that’s inflaming tensions between Ottawa and the provinces. Alberta and Saskatchewan, long estranged from the capital, recently introduced bills to seek greater “sovereignty” for their provinces and to fight what they see as federal “intrusion.”
Yukon’s government said it supports Trudeau’s gun-control proposals and is committed to finding a balance between counteracting the adverse impacts of illegal firearms and respecting hunting rights. But Tracy-Anne McPhee, the territory’s justice minister, has told Mendicino that its RCMP lacks the “administrative, personnel or the financial resources” to participate without additional support, a spokeswoman said.

Good to see New Brunswick as a resister. My dad has some distant cousins in Saint Johns who we visited in 1968.

Justin Trudeau’s attack on US tech companies is already backfiring



Big tech and the Canadian government are at an impasse. As a Canadian citizen, I am alarmed by the Trudeau government’s approach to tech regulation through Bills C-18 and C-11. These measures risk undermining the very foundations of Canadian democracy and a free and open internet.

[clip]

Trudeau and his ministers incessantly lament the disappearance of “independent, nonpartisan newsrooms,” attributing the phenomenon to big tech dominance. But ironically, Canadian politicians maintain active social media accounts. Mere weeks after the passage of Bill C-11 in the Senate on February 2, Trudeau debuted his first video on his own YouTube channel, revealing a striking double standard in his government’s approach.

The government’s actions, rather than fostering cooperation or seeking middle ground, have transformed Canada into an increasingly hostile environment for media and tech companies. His heavy-handed approach could discourage foreign businesses from operating in Canada, as a robust social media presence is vital for success across various industries.

Alarmingly, Trudeau’s government shows no signs of relenting. It has even gone as far as ceasing to buy ads on Facebook, instead of pursuing cooperation or seeking middle ground or compromise. Trudeau must urgently reconsider his approach. Instead of banishing big tech, he must aim for a balanced regulatory framework that respects the principles of a free and open internet while fostering an environment conducive to economic growth, innovation, and the preservation of Canadian democracy.

You know, Oscar Wilde said (in The Picture of Dorian Gray)

“There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”

This little pissant thinks Americans have nothing better to do, than to point out where he's being an egotistical ass.

It's insulting to Muslims that a Canadian Prime Minister tells them, they're not forming their own opinions, they're being manipulated by misinformation from a political party - in another country. I love how Harris illustrated that by saying 'you're wearing the wrong dress today, let me fix that for you'.

But it's amusing that a Canadian Prime Minister thinks anyone in the United States is going to bother to waste their breath on what goes on in *Canada*. I doubt that all that many Americans even know who he is, much less care.
