It's fascinating to watch Bill Blair get roasted for 'betraying' a host of lobby groups who want the government to confiscate my legally-acquired and legally-owned firearms but those same lobby groups refuse to support Firearm Prohibition Order Reform to keep illegal guns out of the hands of convicted violent criminals. Their position is a little bizarre, to be honest. I … [Read more...]

Justin Trudeau’s Evidence-Based Policy on Guns?
"And as we face these challenges, the only ideology that must guide us is evidence. Hard, scientific facts and data. It may seem revolutionary in today’s Ottawa, but instead of inventing the facts to justify the policies, we will create policy based on facts. Solutions can come from the left or the right, all that matters is that they work. That they help us live – and thrive – … [Read more...]
Gamil Gharbi Day – Because blaming the millions of men who didn’t kill anyone is always in fashion!
This is part of my ongoing series on Canadian Mass Murders. It comes as no surprise to me, nor should it come as one to you, that December 6th is dedicated to hating men when the official Montreal Massacre narrative says all men are responsible for Gamil Gharbi's actions. Garbage. This flies in the face of the facts spelled out by Montreal coroner Teresa Sourour in … [Read more...]
Liberal Paradise Where Only Police and Guards Have Guns
A picture is worth a thousand words... a picture with a few words... priceless. … [Read more...]
Mass Killers were all Democrats?
I received the following newspaper clipping via email the other day. It perfectly describes the problem of mass shooters and a possible (and very creative) solution to them. I must admit I enjoyed writer Peter Burkett's logic and what I enjoyed most was the knowledge that anti-gun zealots will undoubtedly weep, wail and gnash their teeth over because his facts are … [Read more...]
15-year-old Sarah Merkle delivers a powerful message to deaf Maryland legislators
Sarah Merkle is just 15 years old, yet a video of her speech (below) to Maryland legislators is making news across North America. Her impassioned speech last only 3 minutes, yet in that short time she effectively slays the arguments of gun confiscators and gun banners the world over. Before that, however, she explains how Maryland’s pending legislation to ban so-called … [Read more...]
Is America Governed by a Leader or Ruled by a Tyrant?
"When dictators come to power, the first thing they do is take away the people’s weapons. It makes it so much easier to force the will of the ruler upon the ruled. I do not believe that [our nation's leaders] have any desire to impose a dictatorship upon us. But this does not mean that such will always be the case. A nation rent internally, as ours has been in recent years, … [Read more...]
The sign you’ll NEVER see posted on Nancy Pelosi’s front door, but she insists be post on yours.
[powerpress] As I wrote the other day in "And the 2012 Hypocrisy Award goes to…", anti-gun hypocrites believe guns in their hands (or the hands of their publicly-funded security agents) are absolutely fine... it's guns in the hands of we mere citizens that they think are the big problem. The gun-banning fanatics insist that if we just took all the guns guns away from … [Read more...]
Wendy Cukier’s dangerous fallacy that women can’t defend themselves
Women like Wendy Cukier are dangerous. Wendy Cukier of Canada's Coalition for Gun Control is one of those individuals who believe the entire world should be run to fit her personal desire, and that’s a very dangerous thing. Yes, to guys like me who happen to like guns, to be sure, but she is far more dangerous to woman than she will ever be to me or any other man and our … [Read more...]
Common Sense from Toronto City Council? Who’d have thunk it!
As Matt Gurney of the National Post said, it was a rare outbreak of sanity in Toronto as the Toronto City Council voted against banning bullets inside the city limits. The city that voted so stupidly to ban plastic bags managed to find an ounce or two of common sense this past Thursday as they voted down moronic city councilor Adam Vaughan’s motion to ban bullets. At 28-13 … [Read more...]
“Gun Control” kills. Here’s how…
The advocates of "gun control" are forever telling us that guns are too dangerous for mere citizens to use. It's just not safe, they say. That mentality has always bothered me because what are police officers except mere citizens with a little training? Anyone can become proficient in the skills needed to handle firearms safely. Training facilities like Front Sight can … [Read more...]
Heidi Rathjen: gov’t “will have blood on their hands”
When all else fails, Heidi Rathjen and her fellow anti-gun zealots always resort to one final cry: You will have blood on your hands!!! It’s as predictable as rain in Vancouver, drought in the desert and snow in Alps in winter. It’s the final cry of those who have failed to ram their agenda down our throats by claiming that anyone who owns a firearm is just a … [Read more...]
Wisconsin passes concealed carry law, newspaper editorial board goes crazy as a result
The editorial board of the Wisconsin Journal-Sentinel have their heads firmly planted up their rectums. Their August 23rd editorial titled "Keep them out" shows how out of touch with reality they are. Their case against law-abiding citizens opens with this asinine statement: Before the Civil War, a Southern congressman once used a cane to beat a Northern senator to within … [Read more...]
Every now and then I just need a dose of The Nuge to get me through the day.
There's just something special about Ted Nugent aka The Nuge. What I love about the man is that he has an opinion and he's not afraid to share it with anyone and everyone. What's better is that he comprehends basic human truths that escape such "progressive thinkers" as Wendy Cukier, Diane Feinstein and that ilk. He applies common sense to the problems he faces. I … [Read more...]
Obama wants more “gun control”… shocked, I am!
It's no shocker that Obama wants more "gun control". Of course he does! It's also no surprise that he blames gun owners for the problems, without actually putting it into those words. Everyone know he'd be making some dumbass announcement about "gun control" after Congress-woman Gabrielle Giffords was shot along with dozens of others. It was only a matter of … [Read more...]
Father of murdered 9-year-old speaks out
It will break your heart to listen to him in this Fox News interview.... the father of the little girl murdered by the lunatic in Tucson Arizona speaks out about what happened, and what he thinks should be done in the wake of his young daughter's death. Like Suzanna Gratia Hupp in 1991, John doesn't believe the answer is to blame the gun, to blame the inanimate object. And … [Read more...]
Our National Monument to Women’s Victimhood
This is part of my ongoing series on Canadian Mass Murders. I was going to write something about Gamil Gharbi's insane killing spree that left fourteen promising young women dead in Montreal back in 1989. But after reading my article from 2008, I really didn't see what I would say today that I could say any better than I wrote then. Maybe next year I'll find a new … [Read more...]
We ain’t got no Saturday Night Specials!
And it's a good thing too... Can you imagine? Someone with small hands actually being able to handle a firearm effectively and safely? Better to have small handguns in the hands of thugs and drug dealers on the streets of Toronto, don't you agree? After all, the only people that can have them since we passed the stupid Firearms Act back in 1995 is drug dealers and … [Read more...]
Donna Montague and the Possible Seizure of her Home by the Ontario Government
I had a long talk with Donna Montague last night, and so far, the news is good, if by good news you mean no news. So far there is no word from the Ontario Attorney General's office regarding their forfeiture application for the Montague family home under Ontario's Proceeds of Crime Act. "This is all so unbelievable. These proceedings have revealed a parliamentary and … [Read more...]
Katey Montague’s Rights and Freedom Bulletin
If you've ever wondered if there is any hope for our future, look no further than Katey Montague. She's building a website devoted to protecting and defending our God-given Rights and is dedicated to winning that fight. For the past few weeks she has been encouraging people to support the opposition MPs who previously voted to scrap Canada's long gun registry through Candice … [Read more...]
Bruce Montague’s Constitutional Challenge Rejected by Supreme Court of Canada
Today the Supreme Court of Canada announced they will not hear Bruce Montague's appeal. This does not mean the Montague's legal troubles are over, however. Still outstanding is the Ontario Provincial Government's threat to take the Montague family home under Ontario's Proceeds of Crime Act. They were "kind" enough, in their letter threatening the house seizure, to allow … [Read more...]
The Long Gun Registry Debate
by Phil Hewkin All the hyperbole and rhetoric, deception and corruption aside, from one guy who actually is not too lazy to read what the law states in the "Criminal code of Canada", all I can say, is, if YOU haven't taken the time to read these laws, "the Firearms Act" and, the section called, "Firearms and other weapons" as I have, PLEASE kindly SHUT the HELL UP! My own … [Read more...]
NDP MPs Under Fire
While NDP party leader Jack Layton does the right thing (allowing a free vote on Candice Hoeppner's private member's Bill C-391), Liberal party leader Michael Ignatieff declares war on two NDP MPs. Niki Ashton (Churchill) and Malcolm Allen (Welland) are the two MPs that Ignatieff believes are the key to ending Bill C-391. In a post on the Liberal party website, Ignatieff … [Read more...]
Larry Bagnell: Another Spineless Liberal MP
Yukon's Liberal MP Larry Bagnell is feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place. His rural riding is filled with hunters, miners, prospectors and outdoors people. When asked if he would avoid the House instead of voting against his constituents, Bagnell said "I’m not sure, I haven’t explored that possibility to see if that’s an option". He's got to ask Iggy's permission … [Read more...]
Wayne Easter: Your Rep to Ottawa? Or Ottawa’s Rep to You?
Liberal MP Wayne Easter's website begins with promise. "I am committed to bringing your voice to Ottawa, by ensuring your concerns are heard and working with you to create opportunities for growth in our province." He forgot to add the end of the sentence though.... "but only if I agree with you." Otherwise, he's just one more politician bringing Ottawa's voice to … [Read more...]
Jack Layton Showing Integrity???
Anyone who knows me knows I'm no fan of Jack Layton's. I think he's an opportunistic man who will do almost anything to get in front of a TV camera. So his stand on "allowing" a free vote on Bill C-391 is very surprising to me. It's no secret that old Jack is anti-gun. If he had his way he'd ban them all in a heartbeat. Good thing he doesn't get his way, if you're a gun … [Read more...]
Jack Layton “under fire”
Jack Layton is under a lot of heat to get his members of parliament in line with party policy. Unfortunately for Jack, those rural riding members want to actually get re-elected. Most won their seats by less than 2,000 votes, some substantially less, so listening to their constituents when it comes to "gun control" means the difference between getting elected or being forced … [Read more...]
It’s about People Control, not Gun Control…
I can't say it any better than Garry Breitkreuz already did, so here's his editorial... The registry isn't about reducing crime. It's about public control. The media war over the hotly contested long-gun registry is in full swing, and it isn’t pretty. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) is lobbying hard to keep our tax dollars flowing into the black hole … [Read more...]
communist broadcasting corp (CBC) at it again…
The CBC (aka communist broadcasting corporation) is demanding we save Canada's failed gun registry. Their reasons are simple enough... the RCMP says it's an important tool. They quote a line from the unreleased report that says: The program, as a whole, is an important tool for law enforcement. It also serves to increase accountability of firearm owners for their … [Read more...]
