Guns do not pull their own triggers. Guns are inert unless some person picks one up, loads it, tucks it into his pants and finally fires into a crowd of people with wanton disregard for human life. This is not gun violence. It is gang violence. It is both desperate and cowardly to attribute the violence to guns rather than gangs.

Trudeau promises to get tough on hunters after boy, 12, killed in gang shooting

But the two men accused of the deadly shooting — Jahwayne Smart, 25, and Rashawn Chambers, 24 — are both convicted criminals prohibited from owning firearms and the federal government banned all the dangerous guns last spring in their attempt to show they were tough on gun crime.

I’m not trying to be flippant, I’m reacting to the fact that another innocent bystander was gunned down – this time a child walking home from a grocery store with his mom – while the Trudeau government insists they are dealing with gun crime. Of course their idea of dealing with gun crimes is to seize guns, not deal with criminals, and the only guns they know how to seize are the ones owned by legal gun owners.

Trudeau’s plan was never about dealing with gangsters who use guns to shoot up the streets, it was always about making the public feel they had done something about gun crime.

Taking guns away from licensed owners won’t stop gangsters though. Taking guns away from gangsters might, but that is difficult and so the government doesn’t act on that.

Despite promising more than $250 million to deal with gun crime in the last election, that money has not been spent. The gun ban was announced though, effectively making many of the more than two million legal and licensed gun owners into criminals with the stroke of a pen without doing a thing to stop gun crime.

Last Saturday’s shooting not only saw an innocent boy killed, but as my colleague Joe Warmington has reported, the gang members targeting their rivals were using guns with over-capacity magazines, which are illegal in Canada. And video of the shooting shows clear signs the gunmen were using automatic weapons, something banned since the 1970s in Canada.

Yet somehow Trudeau is trying to tell the public he is dealing with the issue of gun crime.

He is doing nothing of the sort. What he is doing is trying to distract a public worried about the very real issue of shootings in our streets by telling licensed gun owners they are the problem.

If Trudeau and his Liberal government really care about stopping gun violence, they should focus on the criminals and not legal gun owners going to the range or hunting on the weekends.

Trudeau blames Ford for Toronto's gun violence

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s response to Toronto’s out-of-control gun violence, which last week claimed the life of an innocent 12-year-old boy, was to blame Ontario Premier Doug Ford for not allowing Toronto council to ban handguns.

The Ford government, which would have to grant the power to Toronto council to ban handguns under Trudeau’s plan, is opposed, saying it will target legal gun owners, not criminals.

Ironically, Bill Blair, Trudeau’s public safety minister, back when he was Toronto police chief, implemented and championed an initiative against gun violence that worked.

Following a bloody year of shootings in Toronto in 2005, which became known as the “Year of the Gun,” Blair ramped up street checks (aka carding) and created a squad to combat gang violence, known as the Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS).

From 2005 to 2014, shootings in Toronto dropped by 32% from 262 annually to 177. The number of people wounded and killed in shootings dropped by 55%, from 231 to 103.

After street checks were abandoned and TAVIS disbanded because of allegations they disproportionately targeted Blacks and thus were racist, shootings increased by 178% between 2014 and 2019, from 177 annually to 492. The number of people wounded and killed increased by 176%, from 103 to 284.

In 2014, Toronto’s gun violence was at its lowest level since police began compiling comparable data in 2004. Today it’s at its highest level.

Once again, nobody bids on federal firearms buyback program

Can you hear it—that womp-womp, sad horn sound? Once again, the federal firearms buyback program apparently failed to attract any bidders; no private company wants to design and manage the program, it seems. The government’s tender website still doesn’t list any interested suppliers, after the feds listed the opportunity a second time.

To accomplish that, the feds issued a tender through the BuyAndSell.gc.ca website, looking for a private partner to design, and possibly operate, the buyback program. The original tender appeared in early August, with no takers. A second tender went out in mid-October, with the same goal. Now, that one’s expired too, with no interested supplier listed. Maybe there’s something going on behind the scenes that we don’t know about, maybe not. On the surface, though, it seems the feds are back to the drawing board.

Court challenge of Liberal firearm ban schedules first hearing

A senior Federal Court judge presiding over an unprecedented challenge of federal cabinet powers has scheduled a one-day hearing in January to begin hearing legal arguments over the Trudeau government’s sweeping prohibition of assault-style rifles.

The court session will address only two matters, but will settle whether the ban should be suspended temporarily while a wider court action against the unilateral measure continues.

The prohibition on May 1 instantly made certain firearms held by thousands of gun owners illegal, but the government has so far been unable to establish a compensation buy-back program to acquire the weapons through an amnesty period. The firearms, meanwhile, cannot be used.

Parliament was not involved, and no legislation, even for cost estimates, has been introduced. There’s been no similar legal event in the past four decades of incremental government changes to firearm law in Canada.

The shootings that Trudeau sold to the Canadian public as the spurring point to the OIC gun prohibitions were all conducted with illegally obtained firearms. Trudeau was immediately aware of that fact. Most thought that was the case, but liberals simply won't let facts get in the way of any opportunity to virtue signal their way towards more votes from their gullible support base.

New documents detail the guns — all illegally obtained — used by Canada's worst mass murderer


OTTAWA – Gabriel Wortman, the Nova Scotia man who murdered 22 people in April, was heavily armed with two semi-automatic rifles, two pistols and special ammunition boxes designed to carry extra bullets when he began his rampage.

Newly obtained documents also reveal all of the weapons were illegally obtained, three of them smuggled across the U.S. border.

Hipwell, a former RCMP officer, said it is clear gun restrictions would not have stopped the shooting.

“He had no intention of following the law, so banning firearms, banning semi automatic rifles and handguns would not have stopped him,” he said. “There are strict storage and transportation regulations that go along with those firearms. So there’s a lot of boxes and regulations in place already that this individual did not check.”

The RCMP had been tipped off about Wortman and his illegal guns, his threats of violence against families and neighbours, and they did nothing. A legal gun owner facing the kinds of accusations leveled against Wortman would have seen their home raided and firearms seized, but nothing was ever done about Wortman.

Why remains a mystery, one we will hopefully find out more about during the public inquiry that is now underway.

Why Trudeau linked this massacre and his gun ban agenda is now crystal clear though — pure, partisan politics and nothing else. Shame on him.

Can't wait to hear what the two RCMP officer thought they were doing when they shot up a firehall offering safe hiding for residents during the rampage.

There is a lot we are not hearing
Micro-Hybrid-bulldog "PitBull370"
MOBU Micro BD345 "Greener"
Blackout BD-Axe "Hatchet340"

Every little sound in the bush sounds like footsteps... Until you hear footsteps!
