So let me see… we are allowed to shop on line for uniforms of police officers, we go on line and buy old cop cars at auction, and wait for a CRIMINAL to sell guns they stole FROM THE POLICE. And somehow law abiding gun owners, who have LEGALLY purchased guns, and gone to government courses and obtained government certification for the guns and to use them are the problem? WE HAVE A TYRANT IN OTTAWA. Can our military not remove him?

Liberals have an open plan to confiscate guns from the Law abiding licensed gun owners under C-71, even they want to prohibit personal home gun storage and shift all guns in a mass storage under the vigilance of the government/police. What a joke. If the police cannot protect their own guns then how they will protect the guns in mass storage. Actually Liberals are making it easy for criminals and terrorists to get all arms from one storage, they just have to break it. Disarming 2.2 million lawful Canadian gun owners is a big conspiracy to give upper hand to… Read more »

that’s quite the moronic claim bud. And the Swiss keep their guns all housed in one place and have zero issue

The swiss don’t keep all their guns in one place, most homes house a rifle.

Totally untrue. The Swiss have mandatory military trailing, each Swiss has their military weapons and ammunition in their homes. The only part you got right is “They have zero issues.”

[…] Dennis Young obtained a list of the number of guns lost or stolen by police or public agencies from 2005 through 2019 and the numbers might shock […]

Try Cops doing drug busts and some of the illicit drugs, cash and weapons don’t make it into the evidence … Since when does a police officer take his 13 year old sons out to the country to fire off rifles that are fully automatic? Not in the Canada I know
Even Police have to have these locked up at all times … Welcome to the Canadian RCMP

Justin ” pot pusher ” Trudeau, Billy ” no border ” Blair, Ralph ” good for nothing ” Goodale, Bill ” bullshit ” Morneau and the rest of the Liberal mice need to follow the piper right out of power come ” October ” . And not just on this issue, there are many and more reason to send this tyrannical/schizophrenic government.

Who polices the police and RCMP?

So let me get this straight. Trained professionals are losing prohibited weapons. How is that possible without being put in jail. Sounds like the police cannot be put in charge of their own crimes. Maybe gun owners should be the police watchdog.

1 Machine gun lost, 1 machine gun stolen….Machine gun??? Not a sub-machine gun such as an MP5 but a machine gun…A General Purpose Machine Gun?? Why do police have general purpose machine guns?? You want to talk about a firearm that has been designed to kill as many people as possible, THAT would be a general purpose machine gun….

As a former police officer of over 30 years I find the loss ,mis placement or theft of firearms from police custody ie officers and/or stations to be completely irresistible and shameful for that department.
There seems to be a large hue and cry about the possibility of some firearms being sold on the black market from legal owners when the federal police have allowed over 800 firearms to go missing (to the underworld?).
