Read the post above yours for the root of the problem. We don't equate guns with freedom. Guns are a last resort, check and balance, built into our system, dare I say Constitution, to keep the government "by the people, for the people". Get it right.

We don't blame anyone for drugs. We find where they come from, and attempt to enforce the laws ourselves.

- As a neighbor and a friend of the USA, I personally feel threatened


Unfortunately you won't get much sympathy here because the gun psychos wouldn't care if every person in every other country on the planet died from guns, they would still refuse any efforts to reduce gun atrocities- no matter how necessary or reasonable.

Well, I re-read it and though eloquent, it still comes up the same. Giving up guns is giving up your freedoms, symbolically and literally.

Or as I read another poster state:

We meaning everyone I know think the best way to reduce gun violence is for everyone to be armed and trained at an equal level. Nothing else will do.

Mexico's violence is spreading into the southern states, you know this.
If things aren't done soon to change, Your crap will be spreading into my southern provinces. Not a good thing, but I'm sure you can put a silver lining on it right?

And worse the type that will cause us to use them.
But I guess most progressives answer their own questions anyway.
Do you think they remember how the situation in the US is like a pendulum?

I'm pretty sure you can't walk around with a gun in downtown Toronto.

What city did you carry a gun at?


criminals walk around with guns in downtown Toronto...people innocent enough to obey the laws don't....

or are you implying that even the criminals in Toronto obey the laws??

are you starting to see the mental incontinence in your stance yet?

Mind your own business.
I do believe the OP is saying that your slipshod gun market is making it our business.


Prove it is your business...

you are ascribing the genesis of guns to the US now? as if the US banned them they would cease to exist?

We have thousands of nukes in the hands of a corrupt government known for planning false flags and you are some how more afraid of our "small arms" policies? We have already proven we are willing to drop 2 nulcear bombs on a civilian population and you are more concerned with John Smith father of 2 having an AR-15? The John Smith you have never met and would probably give you the shirt off his back in the time of need? You Canadians are more afraid of him than the rogue US government?

Because THAT is who you are all wanting to take the guns from...its not the criminals as has been stated over...and over...and over again...its the people who pose you NO THREAT!!! that is who is going to be disarmed by law...

You do realize that Mexico has a ban on anything other than small-calibre, magazine-less weapons........right? This gives the drug cartels, with their assault weapons (pulled directly out of the US Army MTOE, no less) supplied by the American ATF, carte blanche to do whatever they want. An armed citizenry is the only type capable of defending itself from both the powers of tyranny and the pillaging of criminal groups who procure their armaments, whatever they may be, by illegal and unregistered means. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens in America would do nothing besides leave the average, law-abiding citizen completely vulnerable and without defense. Still think the police are there to protect you? Well, just for the sake of the argument, let's just say that someone breaks into your house, and by some miracle you get to the phone in time and call the police. The police would be there just in time to put you in a body-bag as they always show up late. It is physically impossible for the police to protect you in a life/death situation if you do not possess the means with which to protect yourself, as the only means of protection they offer is a half-baked preventative measure. In other words, especially in the States, if you are not armed, you're pretty much ripe for the taking.

“Specifically with handguns and automatic weapons, it's generally coming from the U.S. or offshore,” said Const. Ian MacDonald with the Abbotsford Police Department. “They aren't from within Canada.


Keep your guns out of our damn country. Just because Americans are a bunch of pussies who pull out guns at every little sound, doesn't mean everybody else is.

Your country needs gun control, the more guns you have the more their bound to get stolen and make it into our country. Our country is a helluva lot better than yours and the majority of us do not want it to turn into America.


The problem is with your citizens not American weapons. Tell the morons to stop shooting each other then there will be no problem. If your country is so much better than ours then why does so many of your citizens run to America for medical treatment?

No.. wrong. Gun advocates support any actual effort to curb these atrocities. It's just that making guns illegal doesn't do a thing. The hollywood shoot out, columbine, both under an assault weapons ban. Law abiding citizens shouldn't be punished because the government wants to try an illogical experiment. So what if they took away every single gun and you still have these mass killings? Then do they say "oops sorry, here are all your arms back?" NO. Because it's not about stopping violence. I would applaud them if they actually started getting mental health checks for people while they were still in school, and by making schools and places they don't allow guns safer.

But you guys on the left always want to take the easy way out. It's an agenda of bias, you say you want to do it for one reason, but it's not the truth at all. You don't like guns, but if you actually thought about the problem using your brain you would see that taking them doesn't solve anything and it does leave the country (one that is getting more and more authoritarian i might add) completely disarmed.

Because there is always somebody willing to pay to get to the front of the line. Maybe if the US had universal health care, you wouldn't be crankin' out quite so many loons with assault rifles. We done now?

I thought mental health checks for gun purchases were a good idea too, until I realized that it will most probably lead to "mental health checks" prior to job interviews, loans, etc... it could become a slippery slope. I have mixed feelings about it.
Criminals/Mentally ill, will commit crimes, regardless of mental health checks, or gun availability. I would like to be able to defend myself from THOSE people. I am glad this one only had a cell phone.
