I feel safe to live in Canada as we have regulations on guns, and we have what, 160 murders a year in all of Canada as a result of that?
Nothing changes though, still a every crazy American has a gun(*)
That story makes me sick, ive never heard of something like that ever
Let'* see here......make private gun ownership illegal like Austrailia and England. Law-abiding citizens turn them in, but the criminals don't. Violent crime rates skyrocket just like in the two countries I mentioned.
Heil Bush? What has every dictator in the past 100 years done within weeks of gaining control? Disarm the population. Ask yourself why.
When Oregon passed it'* concealed carry law, it saw an immediate reduction in violent crime rates the first 5 consecutive years of the law. Just like every other State before it. Ask yourself why.
160 murders a year? What'* the population in comparison?
Murder will be committed regardless of the tools used. If a killer can't get a gun, he'll use a knife or baseball bat. But a mugger or rapist certainly doesn't relish the thought of an armed victim.
Matt, I'd like to respectfully (seriously....very respectfully) suggest that the liberal Canadian media doesn't cover the part of the data that doesn't support their opinions south of the border. And I'd like to ask you also if hunting is legal in Canada, and if it is, how is your situation any different in this case?
