Evidence shows Mounties kept a copy of the gun registry
May 02, 2021
When criminal defence lawyer Ed Burlew was sifting through the documents sent over by a Crown prosecutor regarding his client, one jumped out. It was proof that the RCMP had kept a copy of the gun registry despite Parliament ordering it destroyed in 2012.
MP Bob Benzen in Committee
May 4, 2021
Mr. Speaker, media revelations that the RCMP kept information from the Liberals’ long-gun registry that Parliament ordered destroyed is blowing new holes in Canadians’ already shaky trust in government.
Now we know why the RCMP targeted certain homes for firearms collections during the High River flooding in Alberta. It is because it had a copy of the registry information. It was not supposed to have it, but it knew exactly where to look.
It is disgraceful that the government and its national institutions cannot be trusted to honour the same rules it, in turn, expects all citizens to follow.
What a betrayal this is of Canadians’ assumptions of equality under the law.
In light of these reports, the Prime Minister and his Minister of Public Safety need to ensure that the RCMP destroys its secret list and comes clean on just what other private information it has compiled that the law does not permit it to have.

Standing Guard | What Enforcing The “Laws On The Books” Would Actually Look Like
April 20, 2021
It is an undeniable truth that our criminal-justice system already has more than enough laws on the books to put criminal gun traffickers away for a very long time. Likewise, it is an absolute lie when gun-banners like Maloney, President Biden, Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi say that current gun laws are “weak” or nonexistent.
So why don’t gun-ban politicians ever demand that tough existing laws be enforced? Because their goal is not safety. Their track record clearly shows that they have no interest in protecting anyone, save for the criminals. Their only goal is to malign NRA members and law-abiding gun owners en route to destroying the Second Amendment.
[While we have no 2nd Amendment in Canada, actually enforcing our strict firearms laws would have a similar effect here as LaPierre states for America. Canadian politicians make the same disingenuous claims for the same reasons – it’s not about guns or public safety… it’s about control.]

Don Pajot: Where hunters should aim in discussing Bill C-21 on gun control
April 15, 2021
So as responsible hunters and firearms owners, we have a duty to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Canadian hunters should raise the bar and aim to support the ban on “assault-style firearms” — which have no legitimacy in our hunting gear.
We should speak out for our time-honoured traditions and legitimate firearms ownership, but also for the greater good and public safety.
Constance Bay resident Don Pajot is a senior Canadian hunter and former firearms and hunter safety training instructor, and a Liaison Officer with the Canadian Forces Ottawa Fish and Game Club.

The PM seems committed to adding to the differences between Indigenous people and the mainstream, instead of trying to dismantle a divisive system.
No charges have been laid against the young people who carried out this farm invasion. Why this ‘get out of jail free’ card for home invaders? Is this a new, and very disturbing, racially-based policy?

Can a government ‘buyback’ get these guns out of Canadians’ hands? Why some owners say they’re not selling
March 28, 2021

MARCH 26, 2021
The White House confirmed Friday that the president will soon sign an executive order on gun control.

Gun control? Evidence says, “Meh”
MARCH 25, 2021
Leah Libresco isn’t goofy. In fact, she did something quite remarkable: She weighed the evidence and changed her mind. Libresco, along with her fellow journalists at FiveThirtyEight, analyzed gun deaths in the United States (roughly, 33,000), evaluated peer-reviewed research, and published an interactive, narrative-based visualization. Suffice to say, Libresco and her merry band of data dweebs did more than just Google it.

We won’t take pictures with him. We won’t salute him because he doesn’t deserve to be with us on those days.”
