RCMP ‘UNABLE TO LOCATE RECORDS’ ON UNAUTHORIZED TRANSFER OF FIREARMS BY LICENSED GUN OWNERS

BILL BLAIR: “…reports show that domestic crime guns have been illegally diverted (straw purchases).” RCMP ATIP RESPONSE: “The Canadian Firearms Program does not hold such records.” RCMP Response to Access to Information Act File: A-2019-06359 dated Nov 26, 2019 received Dec 3, 2019 by Dennis R. Young

OCTOBER 13, 2018 – FACTSCAN: BILL BLAIR: ON CRIME GUNS
By Nojan Kamoosi on October 13, 2018: Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction and MP for Scarborough Southwest, on CBC’s The House on July 28, 2018: ‘While the data on this topic is limited and somewhat flawed, experts agree that historically, most crime guns in Canada have arrived unlawfully from the US. Some new reports contradict this view and imply that a higher rate of crime guns are domestically sourced, however, these reports show that domestic crime guns have been illegally diverted (straw purchases), as opposed to being legally owned by the perpetrators.” FactsCan Score: True

SEPTEMBER 13, 2018 – RCMP HAVE NO RECORDS TO SUPPORT CLAIMS OF ‘STRAW PURCHASES’
CBC NEWS June 14, 2018: “It’s the main source of how firearms are being purchased and how they come into people’s hands on the streets nowadays,” said Sgt. Eric Stewart, head of the Guns and Gangs unit for the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT).”  RCMP ATIP RESPONSE: “Based on the information provided, a search for records was conducted in Edmonton, Alberta and Ottawa, Ontario. Unfortunately, we were unable to locate records which respond to your request.”

“we will strengthen gun laws and ban the type of weapon used at École Polytechnique. These weapons, designed to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time, have no place in our communities, in our streets, in our country.” If that is true, then why do the various police forces around the country need them? Why is the government arming the police with “military style assault weapons”? Who are they planning to use the ability to “kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time” against? Wise up Canada, don’t let your country… Read more »

the gun hating people are like a dog that was kickaround. the liberals are like a little boy who is confronted by the angry dog so he throws the dog a bone to keep it busy while he escapes.but as soon as the dog realizes there is no meet on the bone it attacks again. i am very proud of the fact that i was trusted with owning firearms as i was trusted as an emt-ambulance attendant and volunteer firefighter to come into your home to help save your lives and property,now i am seen as more of a criminal?… Read more »

I am compelled to comment. So this proves that Bill Blair has been LYING. This should be reported by all the media who parroted his LIES. This goes hand in hand with his interview with the CCFR when he demonstrated that he has no clue what the current regulations are. His LIES need to be exposed.
