THE GUN BLOG: Today is the 35th anniversary of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Special thanks to MP Brad Trost for trying to get the Liberals to provide these important statistics to Parliament. Why won’t the Liberals answer a question that the Conservative Government answered in 2006 and the RCMP answered in response to an Access to Information Act request in 2011?

CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE TO BREITKREUZ ORDER PAPER QUESTION Q-7 – MAY 12, 2006: How many individuals are there in Canada who are considered too dangerous to own firearms? http://cssa-cila.org/garryb/inthehouse/Questions/2006/may_12b.htm
BILL SUMMARY: This enactment amends the Firearms Act to eliminate the expiry of certain firearms licences and to provide for the relinquishment of licences. It also requires individuals to update their licence application information every 10 years and provides for the suspension of licences in certain circumstances.
EXCERPT: Honest researchers with integrity would ask the question and see what conclusion the evidence supports. These people started with their conclusion (guns are bad and hurt children) and kept falsifying the data until it “proved” their preconceived notion. That’s not research. That’s propaganda. And the media party gleefully spread the fake news.
