Some Canadians offered to bring hot wings to our superbowl party.
They arrived with their wing that were devoid of any sauce (because they didn't want them too spicy).
They were completely naked and had been baked in the oven.
Sorry, after that I don't take advice from Canadians.
Yeah, that has worked SO well in England. Look at the stabbings that have gone up by 1000-2000% since banning guns. Much of the stabbings are much more brutal than shootings, where someone would get shot with one bullet turns into someone getting 5-20 stab wounds.

Stabbings can be avoided... and of course its the people...
Every major city has problems... This would at least take one problem out of the equasion...
We never see people getting shot in homes here... its always on the streets...
Obviously gangs will always be a problem... but the 5-0 keep their eyes on most of them... and IF they had reason to believe there were guns... there would be probable cause to raid and remove the problem
Summary of key requirements
a firearms licence that is valid for restricted firearms in order to possess or acquire a restricted firearm and to obtain ammunition.
a registration certificate issued under the Firearms Act for all restricted firearms in their possession.
an Authorization to Transport, issued by the Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) of their provincial or territorial jurisdiction, in order to transport a restricted firearm from one location to another.
Individuals must store, display and transport their restricted firearms according to the applicable regulations.
Individuals must be at least 18 to get a licence authorizing them to have restricted firearms. Individuals younger than 18 years of age can use restricted firearms only if they are under the direct and immediate supervision of a licensed adult.
Individuals who do not yet have a firearms licence, or who wish to change their licence privileges to include restricted firearms, must apply for a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL - form RCMP 5592).
Individuals must participate in the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course and pass the tests to be eligible for a PAL with restricted privileges.
A PAL for restricted firearms costs $80 and is renewable every five years. For more information on the current licence fee structure, consult the Canadian Firearms Program (CFP) website.
Permitted purposes for a restricted firearm

Here in my country we simply don't need guns... Sure im all for hunting if that floats your boat...
Gun ranges are all good too! Its good sport... and a lot of fun!
Though as time goes by each year, more and more people are being killed by idiots with hand guns.
Its even come to my city which does not impress me... theres rarely a day in Toronto that we don't hear about a shooting in the streets anymore
And its never a rifle, almost never anything big... its always hand guns!
So... my proposal though drastic, might be a deterrent to people carrying them, or worse... using them in public
I say we in Canada Ban all hand guns, with an automatic 3-5 year prison sentence IF you're caught with one... and of course much worse IF you use it in public!
remove the threat... growing problem solved!
We don't need to carry guns in Canada... we protect ourselves with common sense... and IF needs be we use our fists!
