On May 1, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lectured Canadians on the evils of the AR-15 firearm.
“These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada.”
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair echoed the Prime Minister’s virtue-signalling trope.
“For decades, chiefs of police advocacy groups, grieving families, and everyday Canadians have been calling for a ban of these types of firearms. Guns that were designed for soldiers to kill other soldiers and not for recreational purposes. Guns that belong on a battlefield and not on our streets. Guns that were designed to people. They were intended in their purpose to kill people and they have been used in Canada to kill innocent people.”
Justice Minister David Lametti similarly echoed the Prime Minister’s words.
“Too often we have seen cases where weapons that were designed for use on the battlefield have made their way into our community and have been used to kill as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”
Not to be out-done by her male colleagues, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland piled on.
“Neither my dad nor any other farmer I knew then or have known since, owned an assault rifle or an assault style rifle. That’s because those weapons are not for hunting. They aren’t for shooting a prairie chicken or scaring off a bear. They’re designed for only one purpose: to kill people and to look like they can kill people.”
If there is “no use and no place for such weapons in Canada” as the Prime Minister insists, one may be excused for asking the obvious question:
Why do Canadian police forces need guns whose sole purpose is, according to the Prime Minister, “to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time”?
The answer, at least according to Toronto Police Services spokesperson Mark Pugash in 2016, is simple.
“We’re always looking at technology to see if it offers us additional safety, additional accuracy, something that can help us protect the public.”
I’ll ask the question again in a slightly different format.
How does purchasing guns the Prime Minister insists are “designed for one purpose and one purpose only – to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time” help police “protect the public”?
John Weiler, an instructor at the Ontario Police College, says these guns can also be used as part of a de-escalation strategy.
By de-escalation strategy, does Weiler mean killing “the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time”?
It may seem like a silly question, but on May 1, 2020, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Public Safety, the Justice Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister were crystal clear.
The AR-15 has only one purpose: to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time.
Is it possible they were all wrong?
Is it possible all four ministers were doing absolutely nothing to keep Canadians safe?
Is it possible all four ministers were using a terrible tragedy as the means to implement what they could not do through the normal Parliamentary process?
Is it possible they all flat-out lied to Canadians during a time of national grief?
Yes, all these things are possible.
The Minister of Public Safety told Parliament on June 15, 2020, “The AR-15, and other weapons like it, have been used in mass killings in Canada… ” when the truth is the AR-15 has never been used in a mass shooting in Canada.
In fact, only twice in Canadian history has the AR-15 been used to commit murder.
- The first was a targeted gang execution in 2008 at the height of BC’s drug gang turf war.
- The second was a gun thief executed by a drug dealer in Whitehorse in 2017.
Yes, it’s entirely probable the Government of Canada, through its highest-ranking ministers, all lied to Canadians repeatedly, from May 1st until now.
The question we must as is why?
Why would the government lie to us?
What do they have to gain?
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
Updated June 24 to reflect the two instances where an AR-15 was used in a murder. Both murders were criminals executing other criminals.
Brian Dumner says
Governments exist to lie to the people. Especially the government of canuckistan in ottawaste. The Libranos Job 1 is to look after the Libranos they really don’t give a shit about the country or its people. PM Turdo, billy Blair, LaMetti and the little bitch from Peace River should all be publicly hung for treason. Oh Gawd yes, I want the video of that……
Why? Because they are pandering to their base. Trudeau is a vacuous narcissistic idiot, B.Liar is evil, Freeland is just a parrot, Farmer do use such “Ranch Rifles”. and Lametti is licking boots! None of them have any actual firearms knowledge, except B.Liar, but that is why I say he is evil! We are an easy mark, and demonizing us, makes them think they look good, and perhaps they do to their base, and we are all in agreement of how stupid and ignorant their base is! If you don’t live in Tronna, Montreal, or Quebec City, then they consider everyone else as rubes, and firearm owners as dangerous rubes! In the end it is all about votes and staying in power!
Sgt Norbert Kausen CD Ret'd says
GerryK, you hit it on the head, “B-liar”
Don Preston says
For politicians, particularly Liberals, to lie is quite common. Bill Blair is perhaps the worst we have seen, since he knows better. It’s all fear mongering in order to garner support from the unthinking and uneducated. These lies need to be exposed in the various court cases coming up.
They have been lying since the fraudulently passed C-68 and immediately started confiscating guns after PROMISING it was “not about confiscation.”
Well if the Government takes all those “assault style weapons” off our streets then the police will have no need of AR 15 riffles because it would seem that the infamous 4 (at center of this political kerfuffle) will have a utopian society of polite law abiding conformity. They will be able to go back to being like the old British Bobbies, no not even batons will be required. Right ?
Sgt Norbert Kausen CD Ret'd says
EXACTLY, ‘nudge’, ‘nudge’, ‘wink’, ‘wink’, he said knowingly, with a smile…
Colin Murphy says
Blair is a liar, plain and simple. The other three are just usefull tools…. or should that be useless?
Erwin Paul Kciuk says
I’m surprised the people of Canada haven’t sued our political government, and minister of public safety, for still letting innocent people die from criminals shootings on the streets, just for their own political gain.
Also do the math when it comes to the money, boarder security has been offered. 7,700 Kms. of boarder, with 119 boarder crossings. It’s like hiring 1 person per boarder. Where’s the equipment, dogs, etc. to stop gun traffic.
What’s with the revolving door for the criminals in and out of court for the same crime over and over again. Am I correct in being informed that this present govt., last term relaxed the time in jail for a crime using an illegal gun, and their bail reduced.
If this is true, this govt. created this situation to start their assault on us legal gun owners. Predigest Bastards pissing our hard earned tax dollars, and screwing 37 million Canadians for their own political gain.
Excuse my language, but they are pieces of SHIT and should be on trial for treason, and exiled from our great country CANADA.
P.S. Keep up the good work Christopher. We are all reading, and looking for good journalism, not news from the news media that’s managed by, and on the govt. payroll using our tax dollars.
Christopher di Armani says
Thanks Erwin. I appreciate your support and encouragement!
T Everett says
You are 100% accurate in all your comments. Present Prime mistake of a so-called leader relaxed minimum mandatory sentences as his first action as prime mistake. He is the reason for the results we currently have. It’s all about his own personal goal of United Nations security seat which he just lost his bid at ( pissed away billions tax-payers dollars trying) and his own personal goal of becoming United Nations secretary-general. UN Agenda is to disarm the entire world. By 2050. This is well documented in their manifest.
Us the people, cannot stand against them, those that govern us, if we have no weapons.
Constitutional right to defend our self against all those that seek to harm or enslave us.
Including but not limited to government’s, thief’s, dictator’s, murderer’s.
So my question? why do the powers that be so desperately want to take away the very tools that threaten their power…. oh I just answered my own question.
Arie Intveld says
The first time I heard Trudeau and Blair use the expression (“kill the most people in the shortest amount of time”) I sent Blair a letter stating that he was implying that police with Colt C8 patrol carbines were actually “death squads”.
The relentless demonization and vilification of legal, responsible firearm ownership plus the courts’ benevolence toward violent criminals serves to instill fear and to pit citizen against citizen. A fearful, divided populace looks to their government for protection. This then provides the “justification” to promote the concept that the government (and their agents) need to have the monopoly on the use of lethal force (the old “only the military and police should have guns” mindset).
The “death by a thousand cuts” attack on civilian firearm owners is a keystone to a much larger, global agenda. Global civilian disarmament is a crucial to the success of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
SUSTAINABILITY and the United Nation’s 2030 AGENDA
The UN’s definition of sustainability is, in essence, “from each according to their ability; to each according to their needs”. The UN’s sustainability agenda will control every aspect of, not only human life, but all life and all resources on the planet. Thus the emergence of the UNPA (aka the New World Order). Sustainability is a benign-sounding euphemism for a disturbingly perverted form of Marxism. This perversion of Marxist ideology came into existence in 1895 at the London School of Economics and is called Fabian Socialism.
The UN is on a trajectory to become the global world government over the course of the next 10 years.
Everything that Justin Trudeau and his “progressive” cabinet of amoral consigliere have done or are attempting to do (civilian disarmament; mass immigration; densification of urban areas/municipalities; climate/carbon policy; killing our oil industry; unimaginable national debt; perverting our elections act; prostituting our justice system; curtailing freedom of speech; silencing political dissenters through cancel culture; eradication of religion/history/the family unit/the middle class; propagandizing the media; censoring social media; decriminalizing illegal drugs; mandatory vaxxing; prioritizing UN funding/foreign aid over the needs of Canadians; treating criminals as victims; using our education institutions as social engineering factories; dividing Canadians into identity groups; Stasi-style empowerment for our law enforcement agencies; castrating our military and national defence capabilities) is all per edicts from the UN’s 2030 Agenda. Incidentally, the UN already has its own military/enforcers courtesy of Beijing.
Make no mistake. Grabbing guns from civilians is NOT for public safety. It is for Government safety.
And what about McKenna’s 22,000 “missing” infrastructure projects? Whatcha building on the sly? “Re-education” centres?
Very well said Arie, a very “Woke” perspective. If only there were more of people like you, our country and planet would be a much safer, free world. Thank you for such a well written post.
Well first you sent a letter to deaf ears. The un (no caps, no respect) is, well like star fleet, one global entity ruled by a few. The progression of events seems to solidify fact. I have served on a un mission and old dog barks a lot but no teeth. I do agree with you but when the excrement hits the oscillating blades what then? If this situation is so dire then why is it not a commercial on television like the Corona virus is? No answer needed here, self explanatory.
Good fortune to you my brother, we will all need it! Cheers
Hi Christopher, Although alluded to in some of the posts above, I developed my theory about the gun ban in 1995 with C68.
There is a symbiotic relationship between Government and Criminals. If we could magically rid our world of crime, drugs, gangs, poverty, etc, we would only need about 25% of the Government we now have. When times are peaceful, we are kept complacent with beer and hockey, TV and so on, when crime gets out of hand, the general public start saying, “The Government should do something, they should make a law about this, and so on. By being lenient on Criminals, early release and revolving justice etc, they keep the citizenry fearful and calling for the Government to “Do something” to allay their fears.
So each time Government does something, it usually is half hearted and not really improving things, but creates the appearance of having done something. As it is with the gun issue, none of it is directed at the criminal element, only at the lawful, because we, are, from their myopic perspective, actually the real threat! If they ever do enough to anger the public, something like say, a carbon tax, or Green policies, killing the oil industry and pipelines, or, how about a massive new tax to pay down the vastly newly bloated national debt caused by the stupid Covid scare, that doesn’t even match up to the Flu. So, a new, 25% to 50% tax over and above our current taxation, would anger and disgust the citizenry, perhaps to the point of riots and even maybe a civil war!
Many say civil war could never happen here, but if conditions are right it can happen anywhere. Look at the current situation unfolding in the US, look at Venezuela, by the way, they banned guns from their citizens in or around 2012.
look at Syria, France, all these places are devolving at different rates but all could erupt into civil war. The UK banned guns in 1987, and the gun situation is even worse over there now. OK, if that happened, then we lawful firearms owners would be giving our neighbors our spare guns and ammo, and training them how to use them as well. No, we, us, not the criminals, are, from a Governmental perspective, the real threat! Also, yes, the UN is also looking to become a Global Government, and Trudeau is a big fan, This is why they want to ban guns, because we will be an obstacle in the globalist intentions. The same reason they want to ban guns in the US as well. They cannot control a free people, that has firearms, and the ability and will to defend ourselves! Sadly, right now, the Globalists are winning, because the low information voter will blindly accept the lies and falsehoods the Liberals propagate, and the urban dwellers mostly vote liberal because they only see the urban shootings and the Movie and TV versions of bad guns. The issues are not Gun violence, it is criminal, and violence, that plus poor Government policies that exacerbate those same issues. It is all about Government power and control over the citizens.
Ken H says
In my opinion, the Liberals enjoy the divide and conquer concept. Public safety and security is merely a perception of security. This gun ban is a direct violation of our Charter 7 and will do nothing in improve public safety. The gun ban gives the perception to the general public who are not aware of existing Canadian gun laws or regulations, that more needs to be done. It is ignorance in its truest form. Those who don’t know the current gun laws in Canada are getting fed USA media stats and believe our Canadian media as well. Every one of us has the opportunity to change the non gun Canadian public’s opinion, one person at a time. Be professional and explain our current gun laws and this violation of our property rights. Yes, we can do much more by supporting people like Christopher and other alternative media, but everyday we can change at least 1 person mind about Canadian gun laws by sharing the truth with them professionally.
Stewart Glassel says
Well I guess we gun owners know the lies and bullshit, but how do we get the truth to the moronic uneducated that vote these morons in? I have been a Firearms Instructor for 11 years, and yes, I must admit, I use that platform to re educate the masses about the truth behind govt. lies and untruths. Most have never had any idea what is going on behind their backs. I have been predicting a civil war for 40 years, telling people to stock up on everything. Guns and ammo especially. Just now your waking up to their plan? The horses have left the barn, no point in closing the door now! Nothing new will come of it, the lawsuits will be going in the govt’s favor because they are paid by the govt. Get ready folks, Civil war is the only way to stop it and the bullshit fantasy they have. Po lice were designed to control and move the First Nations folks out of the way for settlement of the masses. All politicians are criminals, that’s why they put Honourable in front of their names, to convince us they are not criminals. The government and their agents is the largest criminal organization in this country. We have all heard the saying” Don’t steal, the government doesn’t like competition” has more truth to it than most people think. Get ready folks time to remind them who they are supposed to serve. MOLON LABE!!!
