How many more citizens have to get shot or killed before we take away their guns!

Let's get rid of these guns. All of them. The time for discussion, studies, research is over. We need some action from our political leaders or are we going to sit idly by in Canada and wait for the US slaughter to overtake us as well.

To answer the question, evidently none, since your link is all about us proceeding to "take away their guns!"

And they're the right guns to start with, too.  Bought in Florida for sale here on the black market.  You can bet these weren't destined for the hands of target shooters.  These are the guns we need to keep our eyes on.

Good article thanks.

Quote:

The suspect had picked up the brand new guns in Cornwall and was en route to Toronto when arrested by police, acting Insp. Don Belanger said.

The guns had been purchased in Florida, where police said they retailed for $500, selling in Canada for $4,000.

So this tells me a couple things.

Illegal guns were smuggled in to Canada from a border town (Cornwall) and our current gun restrictions are working very well.   When a shitty $500 pistol is selling for $4000 you know it's hard to get these on the black market.

Canadians sit smugly by thinking the USA gun violence is not coming to Canada? It must be nice to live in fantasyland, eh!

it’s like the school shootings in the USA Keep showing it on the news 24/7 like we do now with Cable News and it doesn’t take long for copycats. Just like it doesn’t take Canadian copycats long to start shooting people after watching on Canadian Cable News channels all the shooting I the USA

Knives, revolvers or rifles, legal, illegal, targeted or not, these are all red herrings to avoid addressing the real issues here - how do we round up all the guns in Canada amnesty or whatever, and how do we shut down the excessive violence on TV

Easy. Hire more police, give them more firepower and then change the laws to allow warrantless searchs and seizures.  Search homes, vehicles and people. Maybe have the army support the police with their searches.

Amnesty will get a few, but only from those who really have little interest in continuing to own a gun.  Anyone who wants to keep theirs, will.  Certainly criminals aren't going to just hand over their gun, so you're not really getting the guns that will become a problem so much as the dusty old guns that really aren't.

Beyond that, all I can suggest is making it a "value proposition".  Make it a really, really bad idea to have (and especially to use) an illegal gun.  The problem right now is that for lots of people, it's a rational risk.

Where did this come from?

Maybe try good, wholesome programming, like "Touched by an Angel" or "The Waltons".  Literally starve that violent stuff with plenty of uplifting and postive television.

Another day another gun killing spree! Take away all their guns and these mass slayings will quickly diminish

I think everyone who does not have a gun should put up a sign in front of their house which says, "Gun Free Zone".

I remember watching that show as a kid. 

As a catholic who has read the old testiment if lights got all softy glowly heavenly like and someone said "I'm an angel, sent by God" I'd probably dive for my registered and propperly locked and stored guns.  Angels are romantasized assassins.

I just read that story. That man 100% wouldn't have harmed anyone if he didn't have access to a gun.  He probably would have just went about his business.

If people are getting murdered by guns in the USA, how is taking away guns in Canada going to solve that?

Oh. And America has a lot of guns. It is what they want. People are going to get killed. We are not going to change America's love for guns. Not by one millionth of a billionth of an iota. Americans don't even think there is one person in Canada worthy of existence, so they are not going to listen to our preaching on guns.

People get killed by guns every day all over the world. Why are white Americans so special? They are people who got killed by guns. That is the way the ball bounces. If Americans want to end gun violence, Americans will end gun violence. If they don't want to end gun violence, there is absolutely nothing we can do to change it. So, uh, what is this about then?

If police were allowed to randomnly stop and search citizens these shootings wouldn't happen as much.
