  1. Holding a PAL gives the RCMP the right to check your criminal record daily. If a complaint such as domestic abuse is filed on a PAL holder, you can bet there's going to be a red flag. I certainly agree the ball was dropped here considering the history/background of abuse.
  2. You can be sure if those firearms were legally owned the RCMP would've been at his door immediately. Especially considering it was a domestic abuse complaint. This should turn into a public enquiry.
  3. This is from a while ago and appears to be Mike just "messing around". That uppercut to left hook would be a miserable experience. Tyson combination
  4. Now why would you go and edit your previous post? You're proven wrong so you revise your statement? Further proof that you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
  5. You should bring your bolt action out and do some boar hunting. Lemme know where and when so I can watch. From a distance. With my Kodiak.
  6. I just don't understand why the government doesn't simply make murder illegal. It seems pretty simple to me.
  7. Once again, you're wrong. Bolt action rifles are inherently more accurate due to the bolt being "locked" when firing. While the BCG on a semi auto is "free floating". If you're accurate (especially at ranges over 200yds.) with a semi automatic rifle you're pretty much guaranteed to be even more accurate with a bolt action. Both rifles are widely accepted hunting tools. The misinformation you have spread in this thread alone is remarkable. I can only imagine what a joy you are to be around irl.
  8. FYI, "paranoid Cletus" (?) cannot carry in Canada. You can apply for a carry permit...but you're not going to get it. I really don't get the reference. I believe you're confusing the events in the US with what happens occasionally in Canada. I'm certainly not using criminals as my "reason for ownership". I don't own any firearms for "protection". I'm a hunter and sport shooter. Criminals in possession of firearms should be the focus of the federal government if they're truly interested in "keeping Canadians safe". That's what I'm saying. Focus on the crime. I was fairly certain that was clear.
  9. I don't "need" handguns either but, since criminals use them to commit crimes I guess they're next to be banned and you're ok with this? It's almost more humourous you don't see how ridiculous this ban is than the actual ban itself.
  10. On this we can agree. Maybe, just maybe, instead of removing these legally acquired firearms from their lawful owners the billions it will cost to buy them back would be better spent on programs you've described? Reasonable people would tend to agree with this.
  11. "Criminals gonna criminal" is tiring to read from you and others as well, let's be honest. There's a reason you are so dismissive of this point. It's true. The next madman who commits a very unfortunate crime using illegally obtained firearms, because we all know it's coming, this point will be brought up again. Then I suppose the argument will be "he was a law abiding citizen...until he wasn't". Clever. "Assault weapons" meaning select fire (capable of fully automatic) have been prohibited for decades. "Assault style weapons" meaning (I suppose) firearms which look like fully automatic rifles, are what's on the list. Sporting/target rifles which are frequently used for varmint control.
  12. This isn't about guns. Not that long ago people who committed a heinous crime such as this used rope.
  13. Not exactly true...there's, like, one of those lowers in Canada. Good thing it's now prohib. Great marketing though! "Uncle Blackface bans black coffee! Say it ain't so!"
  14. Being a firearms owner I'm obviously not opposed to regulations. Arbitrary regulations are what I am opposed to. Over 50 pages and we're still spinning this. Why am I not surprised?
  15. Ugh. This AGAIN. Guns are only dangerous when they're in the hands of a dangerous person. Just like any other inanimate object. My firearms are locked in a cabinet (trigger locks on the restricted), in a locked room in my locked house. Do you know why? So bad people don't get their bad hands on them. Are baseball bats dangerous? Kitchen knives? How about your car keys? The key word in your second paragraph is "smart".
  16. You're right, there were lots of changes after 9/11. The government didn't take away privately owned planes because of it though. Biggest change, It's a lot more strict to fly commercial and I can't bring nail clippers on the flight. I will digress though. More laws do stop people from committing crimes, I'm convinced.
  17. Disgusting...and that's before you find out the assailants are a former police officer and his son.
  18. What's that? An arbitrary law passed in this country with no data/facts to "protect Canadians". I see that as a threat to everyone's freedom, not just firearms owners. All you have to do is ask yourself, "what's next"?
