Any numbers on how many firearms involved in crimes in Canada have been illegally smuggled in from the US?
The United States is the primary source for smuggled firearms or firearms parts into Canada — due in part to its close proximity, differences in gun control legislation, and a large firearms manufacturing base. According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), in 2006, 96 per cent of all firearms seized originated in or transited through the United States. The majority of these seizures occurred at land border ports of entry, and were from private and/or commercial vehicles of legitimate U.S. travelers, especially hunters and truckers, who failed to declare these firearms. In addition, in 2006 there were 32 firearms seized between ports of entry, as compared to 12 in 2005. CBSA also reported a small quantity of guns being smuggled into Canada from various other countries, including Belgium, Switzerland, Georgia and China and Hong Kong. www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca...

Your a slave without a gun, I disagree. This is how it is in many european countries including ireland, and we are far from slaves.
The major sources of illicit firearms in Canada are smuggled firearms and domestic theft.
Smuggled firearms that cross the land border from the United States are a significant source of illegal firearms due in part to its geographic proximity and less restrictive gun control regulations.
I have been drunk and come home many times, I have never kicked in my own door even when "the key did not work" So, door kicked in = shot to chest. I fail to see the issue.
Imagine that man that entered your house by accident was just a drunk guy, not knowing what he was doing.

Well people I hate to break it to you but you are all wrong.
Here is your proof.
Look at NY gun crime. Oh wait but it is against the law to bring a gun into NY right. Well people maybe you can tell me why their gun crime rate and murder by gun rates are so high.
Now look at Massachuttes which has the most toughest gun laws in the state. Every single day there is a shooting in boston and mattapan or cambridge. Why you might ask? Because if you get arrested for a gun violation instead of a manidtory year in jail. If you get caught with one without a liscense you get a slap on the peeper and that is it. Suspended sentence time served probation.
Now lets look at the state of Texas.
All of its citizens or most of them are armed. It has one of the lowest crime rates and lowest gun related murders.
Why. Thats right. No answer
Taking away guns is not the answer people.
Look at any country where it is illegal to own or posses a pistol or shot gun. Find one and look up gun related murders. Hey why are they high gee I wonder how can that be.
Thats right taking away guns is the agenda of the socialists.To make us into sheeple so we cannot defend ourselves.
Oh you dont like that.
Here drink this coolaid it will make you feel all better.

You must have the military with you, if you want to take down the government.
Thats how the Portuguese revolution occurred in April 25th, 1974.
