Totally agree. Like I said it wouldn’t be the first time the law abiding citizens been punished because of a few bleeding Hearts or some incident like you described. Government overthinking something. Like the long gun registration years back. Just adding to the discussion. Anyway I filled out petition against hand held powder burners. Thank you for starting the post.

The Government is not overlooking or overthinking anything. Governments want to get re-elected.

To do that, they will do and say what they think they have to do and say. They write and pass laws that will make it

appear they are doing something against what is perceived a threat to peace, ie: gun crime. This serves them 2 ways.

We know, or at least we all should know that laws NEVER effect the criminal. It is already illegal for them to possess firearms.

What does another law mean to them? They are criminals - they are cast "outside the protection of law" - they are "outlaws".

It is illegal to use a firearm in the commission of a crime.

It is already a crime to kill someone - & ESPECIALLY illegal to kill someone with a firearm. See previous, highlighted sentence. Does or

has this made a difference? No. Firearms crimes are up in the gang/drug communities, while they are dropping everywhere else, in Canada.

Will making it even MORE illegal to possess a firearm that is already illegal for them to posses, stop these crimes?

Thus, every year, there are more and more strict gun laws brought out to make it appear they are addressing crime, all the while, your rights

& freedoms are being eroded and you are being brought under more "controls". Gun laws do not prevent crime. It is already illegal to commit a

crime against "Canada". What happens if 'we' turn more and more people into 'instant' criminals? This in itself shows that we need even more

gun laws - gun laws are about control!

Pure and Simple.
