OTTAWA - More people were killed with knives than guns last year and the number of gun-related homicides fell to an all-time low, according to Statistics Canada.

Yep, outlawing guns sure did the trick.

Canada's homicide rate increased last year after being stable for two years.

Like I always say, If someone wants to kill someone else they will find a way. Disarming the population does not change that fact.
edit: That was wierd. Has anyone ever had strange words pop up in a copy and pasted post from notepad before?

Yeah stupid isn't it.

Yet our dummy, no make that puppet Prime Minister wants to spend $1 Billion dollars for gun control that most people do not want.

The OWO controls this country what a shame.

And I wonder how many of those who died by getting stabbed with a knife would have lived if they could have defended themselves with a firearm????.
Gun Control isn't about controlling guns,it's about controlling people,controlling them by making them rely on the government "hired guns" or cops,and the military,just think how easy it would be to control people if they knew that their opinion would cost them protection by the police or government forces?.
It's all a lie,people NEED to have the ability to defend themselves,and now just to add fuel to the fire,there are laws being written to make it harder for one to claim self defense.
If the governments actually had their way,we would have to register edged weapons,that's probably not that far off,there are a lot of changes going on here in the US which make it obvious that this is coming too,but of course,the sleeping sheeple masses don't have a clue that there is anything wrong.
Outlaw Guns and only Outlaws will Have Guns..........
Really though,in the end it will be about people who know that they will do something that will make you want to kill them eventually,that would be those pesky politicians,you KNOW they will do something that will erk the # outa ya someday,unless of course you actually listen to your peers,parents etc., and just accept things because "you can't fight city hall".
It's legal to kill animals,because secretly there is this resentment for them,because they are free,and we know deep down inside we are slaves.

Wonder how long it will be before they try to ban knives...
Then ball bats...then rope....then cars.....pretty soon they will try banning rocks.
They need to get through there heads that people kill people. Whatever they use to do it with is nothing more than a tool.

hey don't give these socialist fascists in my country any more ideas. Soon they will have all the restaurants like McD's where you have to eat with your hands only.

That animals don't,an opposable thumb which enables us to use TOOLS,just like chimps,HEH HEH,and language,which seems to render most of the tools we can use useless.
Now,I don't seem to ever recall seeing or hearing two animals fighting and arguing about some # issue that wasn't absolutely essential for survival,why can't people learn from them?,they were here before us,they will probably always be here,and after we all destroy ourselves as a race they more than likely will still be here if we don't destroy them along with ourselves.
As a species,I think we think too much for our own good,the requirements for survival are pretty cut and dried,morals and responsibility.

I don't get this whole thing,look at the beginning and the end,they are always the same,you are born,then you live for awhile,then you die.
It's not like you would have lived forever if that hooligan had not clubbed you over the head with that rock or whatever.
Murder is a bad thing,there were laws against it from the beginning.
It's just getting a bit rediculous because too many want to rely on others to protect them from this or that or whatever.
Morals and Responsibility.

Ban knives!!!

And then, ban beer bottles, forks, spatulas, wrenches, hammers, ...........

Oh yeah, the only way to make the world safe is to prevent people from hurting each other....

OK, the whole world is under arrest!!!!!

*starts having flashbacks to Bowling For Columbine scenes*

If its sharp and shiny, stick a parental advisory sticker on it.

Last time I checked, guns were not outlawed in Canada.

We are not a culture who reaches for their gun because someone flips them off in traffic.

As Archie Buner replied to Gloria when she was harping about deaths by firearms,
"Would it make you feel better, little girl, if they was shoved outta windows?"

Yeah they are, green. Theres some people who are allowed them, but the laws are so draconian they may as well be outlawed.

More people in the US die from knives than guns. Knives are the number one murder weapon used by killers. Guns are ineffecient, because if youre killing someone, you dont want to attarct attention. thus, guns are impractical for this purpose because they are very noise. knives slitting your victims throat make no sounds.

Bowling for Columbine......Im still debating on whether or not its even worth seeing, since from what little ive seen of it is a bunch of liberal sensationislm and paranoia mongering with lopside views and no real facts.

One statistic that the gun grabbers love to harp on about firearms deaths is the number of police officers shot to death in the line of duty.

One small problem with the numbers that they like to quote on this however: over 3/4 of all police officers who are shot to death in the line of duty are shot with thier own weapons...

Seems that we could drastically reduce firearms deaths here in the US almost overnight if someone would bother to teach police officers proper weapons retention techniques...

Weapons are highly controlled in Canada. It is nearly impossible to obtain a hand guy unless you can justify it for protection or you use it for competitive shooting.

Where I live in Toronto we have a law on the books that says it is illegal and an arms offense to fire a pellet of BB gun anywhere in the city limits. Also know that we have restrictions on the muzzle velocities even on a BB gun here.

I personally know people that were taken down by police swat teams here because they waved around pellet guns and actually did months of jail time.

The globalists love my country and they run it.

Our soon to be Prime Minister Martin was literally been crowned by the party system here, he got his start early in life from a guy named Maurice Stong.

Maurice Strong was an early mover in the UN. He was the guy that hosted the Earth Summit in Rio about 10 years ago. He was the guy that went as an unofficial rep of the UN to talke to the North Koreans when it was announced that they were making a nuke.

He is possibly the most powerful man in Canada next to Ilumanitti Bronfman.

Canada is their bitch.'

Over 7 million guns in Canada, over 1 million handguns For a country of that has 30 million people that is quite a bit of guns. Seems like whoever wants one can get one. As for people being taken down by swat for waving BB guns around, I am willing to bet those BB guns looked an awful lot like real guns.

I don't want to sound too much like Michael Moore here, but whether or not people are killed more with handguns or knives isn't as important as the fact that the murder rate in the US is far higher than Canada. I am from Winnipeg, the official murder capital of Canada. Not to be racist but when the papers report a murder 9 times out of 10 I can predict the persons skin color, and it is not the one most of you people are thinking. Typically alcohol is heavily involved. Other than being killed in a bar fight, I feel perfectly safe knowing that I will not be murdered in Canada.

TheNeo: "I personally know people that were taken down by police swat teams here because they waved around pellet guns and actually did months of jail time."

BS. I lived in Toronto for seven years and that's total garbage. Months of jail time? BS. "Taken down by police swat teams"? BS. Give me a name.

Skadi: See Bowling For Columbine, it's eye-opening and I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

Every year, more than 30,000 Americans are shot to death in murders, suicides, and accidents. Another 65,000 suffer from gun injuries.

Take away the guns and that number would PLUMMET. Shooting someone is far easier than actually having to get in there and stab them.

Who kills more Americans per year than any other nationality? Americans.

The gun laws in Canada sucks. I want the right to walk on the street with my gun if I want to.

Of course more people get killed by knives in Canada... Canada severely restricts handgun ownership, and it is virtually impossible to obtain any kind of CCW/CHL there.

A Concealed Handgun Licence law has always had a very positive effect on crime rates in every state that it has been implemented in. Most profoundly, every state that has enacted a CHL law has seen a vast improvement in the rate of rape, as the vast majority of applicants are females.

If you are a rapist, do you really want to attack that pretty lady over there, knowing she may well have a Colt Commander in her purse?

The gun control crowd has made a lot of noise lately that crime rates have fallen since the enactment of restrictions on assault weapons: The truth of the matter is that such weapons were hardly ever used in crime. These same people also forget to point out that in the same time interval, a large number of states have enacted CHL laws, and THAT is what is responsible for the decline in crime...
