JUSTICE FOR GUN OWNERS: FACED WITH GANG KILLINGS, THE RCMP BLAMES PAL HOLDERS? Handgun homicides spiked in the early 1990s and have continued to increase ever since. There was a shocking 46% increase in handgun homicides between 1974 and 2015. The increase in handgun homicides is due to a growing problem with criminal gangs. You can see the growth in Chart 5. So why does the RCMP focus on peaceable firearms owners? POSTED BY: GARY MAUSER AUGUST 7, 2017 http://justiceforgunowners.ca/faced-with-gang-killings-the-rcmp-blames-pal-holders/

EXCERPT: In 2015, stabbings continued to be the most common method of committing homicide in Canada (37%), followed by shootings (30%) and beatings (23%). These proportions are similar to those reported over the past 10 years (Table 4, Chart). Handguns were used in 57% of firearm-related homicides in 2015, and they continue to be the most frequently used type of firearm. This proportion is down from 2014, where handguns accounted for 67% of firearm-related homicides. The rate of handgun-related homicides remained relatively stable at 0.28 per 100,000 population in 2015 (compared to 0.29 in 2014). Of note, the number of homicides committed with sawed-off rifles or shotguns increased to 23 (+17), accounting for 13% of firearm-related homicides in 2015, up from 4% in 2014 (Table 5).
