iPolitics Misleads Canadians Again

iPolitics misleads Canadians again, starting with the headline “Handgun ownership soared after long-gun registry ended, gun crime followed.”[i]

Handgun ownership did not “soar” after the long gun registry ended. Canadians have purchased more restricted firearms (handguns and certain rifles) every year and have done so since at least 2003.[ii]

This headline implies increased lawful ownership of firearms is the cause of violent crime. No such causation exists as researcher Dr. Caillin Langmann showed in his submission[iii] to the House of Commons committee studying Bill C-71.

The Canadian firearms community is ambushed –– again!

This was a more-than-interesting week. We saw the most amazing of deflections by veteran Mayor John Tory, who turned the public’s gaze away from his impotent efforts to control gang crime while firmly locking the media’s sights upon the innocent legal firearm owners of Canada.

We saw federal politicians dive for cover. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale mumbled something about, “we’ll look into it (gun banning).” The other parties seemingly kept their powder dry as they waited for the news cycle to complete. Meanwhile, the rest of the country mourned the injury of 13 innocents and the tragic loss of two beautiful young ladies, sparkling with potential, at the hands of a madman with an illegal gun.

The Liberals Have a Lot of Explaining to Do

First, Mark Holland stood in the House of Commons and inferred Canadian firearm owners are thugs:

“What thugs do is to make sure they are able to keep weapons in their car and not have to answer any questions. That is what they are going to do. They are going to put the weapons in the car and drive wherever they go. They know that if they are pulled over by a police officer, all they have to do is list one of a million different places to explain where they are going.”

After Justin Trudeau and Ralph Goodale went to extreme lengths to assure gun owners that Bill C-71, The Firearm Owners Harassment Act, is not –– repeat not –– a gun registry, it seems not everyone got the memo.

Francis Langlois, the CBC’s self-described “gun control expert,” shot down the government’s claim about Bill C-71.

Ottawa’s National Summit on Guns, Gangs and Drugs

When Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale announced his Criminal Guns and Gangs Summit late last year, it was part of his $328 million funding announcement aimed at combating the illegal drug trade and the gangs who shoot up our city streets to protect that trade.

We said then, if Goodale targets drug dealers and violent criminals, fantastic. If his plan is to disarm violent criminals in those gangs, even better. The problem we face is this –– Ottawa and police forces across the nation continue to peddle the lie “the majority” of guns used in crime are “domestically sourced.”

What Can Brian Tracy Teach Us About Evidence-Based Firearm Policy?

Any road to sound government policy must be paved with evidence. For rational decisions to be made, the road to policy must be built on the bedrock of fact. Otherwise, policy built on the quicksand of fantasy can never achieve its desired outcome.

Before we can develop effective national firearms policy, we must define our goal (specify with precision what constitutes success) before we construct the detailed roadmap required to achieve that success.

Media FAIL: The Responsibility to Tell the Truth

What is an “assault rifle?”

According to the lamestream media, it’s any black rifle in civilian hands. 

Civilian firearms are particularly heinous when their cosmetic exterior mimics the AR-15 or AK-47, even if they shoot .22LR calibre bullets and share no physical components with those rifles.

The media asserts police are the experts when it comes to firearms.Taking them at their word, we turn to acknowledged firearm expert David Brown. Brown is a firearms safety specialist and professional instructor. He works primarily with government agencies, law enforcement officers and military units on weapons handling, safety and marksmanship.

Every year since Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi (AKA Marc Lepine) walked into Montreal’s École Polytechnique and murdered 14 female engineering students, the Montreal Massacre Media Collective has used Gharbi’s heartbreaking, misogynist attack to push their civilian disarmament agenda on innocent, law-abiding Canadian firearm owners.
