The foolish and pathetic politicians are unwilling to confront real problems, so they’re trying to take away the rights of law-abiding Canadians.
Canada has long been a nation with a lot of guns. In fact, gun ownership rates in Canada are relatively high compared to much of the rest of the world. It’s only the immense amount of guns in the United States that makes Canada’s gun ownership rate appear low.
Canada also has (or generally had) a low rate of gun violence. Many countries that have far fewer guns per capita have much higher levels of gun crime than we do.
All of this shows that the issue isn’t actually the amount of guns, it’s who has those guns, and how those guns are used.
Guns in the hands of law-abiding Canadian firearms owners, hunters, sport shooters, and gun enthusiasts are NOT the source of gun crime.
Guns in the hands of Gangs are the source of gun crime.
So, as Canada watches violence spike in many of our cities, it’s essential to point out this very clear fact:
Canada does NOT have a ‘gun problem.’ We have a Gang problem.
A combo of spineless politicians and political correctness has led to a rise in both the strength and the aggressiveness of gangs.
And then, the response to that rise of gang power from the authorities is simply to threaten to take away the rights of law-abiding citizens.
Just look at what’s happening in Manitoba. Manitoba Liquor Marts are being robbed up to 20 times a day, with people straight up walking into the stores, stealing a bunch of product, and then walking out without facing any punishment whatsoever. In fact, the Winnipeg authorities recently warned the public not to intervene, saying they could face charges. So, the criminals can do whatever they want, but law-abiding people get threatened by the government.
This kind of attitude from those in charge only emboldens criminals more, and soft-approach to crime is failing miserably.
That’s why any politician who tries to take rights away from law-abiding gun owners should be dismissed immediately, because they aren’t addressing the real problem: The rising threat of Gangs in Canada.
