Oh, Canada… *sigh* I couldn’t let the sun set on this July 1st Canada Day without thinking about the state that our beautiful country is in.
As I stood at the shooting range and reloaded the mags in my handgun, I began to wonder if this is the last July 1st that I’ll be able to enjoy this harmless, innocent, fun hobby. All the time and money spent on the Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) training courses can all be taken away in the blink of an eye?
I can finally tangibly feel the division of our country like I’ve never felt before. We tout being “strong and free” in our anthem, but many Canadians became instant criminals when Trudeau passed a sudden undemocratic “assault weapons ban” shortly after the Nova Scotia shooting.
The story behind the shooting doesn’t add up, but I ask you to just walk with me through the rest of this and form your own opinion by the end. I know you will! So, gimme 5 more minutes of your time. It’ll be worth it! This one has a deep “rabbit hole” so get ready.
Nova Scotia shooting:
1. All weapons were Illegally obtained
2. Murderer (Gabriel Wortman) did not have a PAL
Why 22 people died:
1. Murderer appeared to be an officer of the law (drove a Replica RCMP cruiser, wore police uniform)
2. RCMP failed to properly notify the public in a timely and efficient manner
*SQUIRREL! And, someone please explain why 2 RCMP officers opened fire on a firehall!!!
If this tragedy was a result of illegally obtained weapons and incompetent policing, what in the world does that have to do with legal firearms that are legally acquired by licensed, law-abiding citizens?
Let’s pretend that Psycho-Joe Schmoe went on a stabbing spree with a knife. I can see the headline now: “BREAKING NEWS: Without a vote, debate, or any consultation, Trudeau places a ban on all “Chef-style” knives to crack down on stabbings. Any chef who has a large variety of chef knives that were legally purchased for the use of cooking is no longer allowed! Don’t worry, the government will use tax-payer money to “buy back” the deadly weapons. Knife-owners will essentially be buying the knife twice, but it’s for the safety of everyone. It doesn’t matter how much the knife was purchased for, or if it has sentimental value – you are not allowed to use it. Also, if you are a business that specializes in selling knives, you will be out of business soon, because all those “chef-style” knives in your inventory are now suddenly useless. Last but not least, we will continue to evaluate the other knives and change the classification as we go, with little or no notice. We don’t care that cooking is your hobby, career, or livelihood. It doesn’t matter that 99% of chefs use knives for its true purpose, we need to crack down on the minuscule percentage who doesn’t. We will not put any energy into evaluating knife murder stats or any other valuable studies or action that can reduce psychotic knife attacks.”
People seem to love to ask the question,
“Well, why do you need an assault rifle to shoot targets anyways?”
“Technically I don’t ‘need’ one. We don’t need a super car to drive to work, but we do it anyways. The Prius will get me to work just as effectively as the Corvette, but I enjoy driving the Corvette.”
Canada is supposed to be a democratic country. As long as I am not harming others, I have the right to possess and use that which I choose to possess and use!
Cars kill people, too. Think about that for a second. Should we ban larger, bigger, faster, scary-looking automobiles? We have a right to obtain a driver’s licence. As responsible drivers, we have the freedom to choose the car we want to purchase and the responsibility of driving the car safely.
Hammers kill people. Golf clubs kill people. Alcohol kills people. Sugar kills people… Shall I go on?…
If Trudeau really cared about saving Canadians lives from mass shootings, he would pump all his effort directly into the root of the problem – Illegally obtained weapons and the thugs in possession of them.
The loss of 22 souls in Nova Scotia is beyond heartbreaking. There are no words to comfort the families. This tragedy happened because the public was not adequately warned. This tragedy happened because posing as law-enforcement was the perfect disguise to ensure the highest number of fatalities. When you take a tally, the blame lies in the lap of the RCMP.
What the media doesn’t want you to know is that as unbelievably flawed as this story was, more questions are beginning to emerge.
Why was this murderer able to withdraw $475,000.00 dollars from Brinks – not a bank?
This can no longer be dismissed as a conspiracy theory! Real questions need to be answered!
What we should be asking:
1. Where did the murderer obtain his illegal firearms from?
2. Where did he get his police uniform from?
3. Why is any civilian allowed to purchase old police cruisers/ identical to police cruisers?
4. Why was the murderer able to go on an extended rampage for so many hours?
5. Where is the tough response from Trudeau against international weapons smuggling?
6. Why did the murderer withdraw $475,000.00 on March 30?
7. Why isn’t the RCMP being held to the fire by Trudeau instead of the LAZY weapon ban?
8. Hmmm…maybe if law-abiding citizens were able to conceal-carry, could we have taken him out sooner? This is not a question – the answer is YES!
As I wind down on this Canada Day with the sun now fully set, I think about this day of confederation. According to Wikipedia, the definition of confederation is, “A union of sovereign groups or states, united for purposes of common action. Usually created by a treaty, confederations of states tend to be established for dealing with critical issues, such as defense, foreign relations, internal trade or currency, with the general government being required to provide support for all its members.”
Canada Day is a day that we celebrate the initial union of eastern Canadian provinces. Take note that we are celebrating the day when the East united, not when the entire country became one. Ironically, there is an existing battle between East vs. West in Canada. With a national holiday spotlighting the East, it’s no wonder that the West continues to feel alienated. It’s still evident that the East has all the attention and power. Don’t forget that it was the votes from Ontario and Quebec that elected the current Prime Minister – who happens to also be from the East… But that’s a topic for another day.
At any rate, I wish I could have spent the day without thinking about Justin (Black-Face) Trudeau threatening my freedom of engaging in an extracurricular activity that is harming NO ONE. The bully usually picks on the quiet kids – until they start fighting back…
