Poll: Do You Support More Gun Control Laws?

Post by Treblehook »

This question seems irksome to me. The more appropriate issue is the failure of our prosecutors and courts to effectively prosecute and effectively sentence persons who have violated that existing firearms laws. What is the point in creating new laws when those that already are on the books are not used?

As for the title, yes I do want more gun control laws for the scum that inhabit within our society and insist on shooting each other over drugs and the like.

Is this reality? Not in the least. Mine are locked up as are the majority of law abiding firearm owners who respect the PRIVILEGE of owning fire arms.

Canada , in my opinion, have laws regarding firearms that work for the most of us. Yes there will be some that " crack" and are in the news because of firearm use, don't know how to prevent that unless Canada prohibits ALL firearm ownership. Political suicide.

Are there stiffer penalties for committing a crime while using a firearm?
If not then there has to be.
If there is, then apparently they aren't severe enough.

I want extreme penalties for use of a firearm when committing a crime. BUT..... I want the right to arm myself inside my home to protect my family from crime. As a victim of a home invasion, I want to be armed to the max in the future in case this ever happens again. I currently have several machetes and axes concealed through the house, but I'd really like something like a Mossberg Shockwave. Or a couple of them.

With or without more gun control, those wanting to use a gun in either criminal activity or mass shooting. Will be able to get a gun it’s called the black market.
More gun control may put a small dent in the black market business... it will continue.

How many people who have gone through the system received their PAL or PPAL, then turned around to become a criminal or mass shooter.

btw... I have absolutely no desire to become a gun owner.

The people have spoken??? What???
'The People' are compliant PC weaklings that would serve JT on their knees if he ordered them to.
JT could ban everything including nail guns if he wanted to, and the people will say 'Oh ...it was a privilege, and not a right' to begin with. They would love him even more for it. He would probably end up with a sweeping majority in the next election if he banned all guns.
Besides....we can't defend property or ourselves in Canada...what do we need guns for? To hunt? If you are not FN, you can kiss that goodbye very soon as well.
Betcha very soon we won't be able to store them at home anyway....we will have to 'apply' to take our guns out of 'storage'-whatever that 'storage' looks like.
Remember...the last thing Canadians under 40 want is self reliant rednecks out and about. Maybe rednecks are scary to the new owners of Canada.... :200:

More like a tiny sector of a majorly conservative and grey-haired area population has spoken.

Castanet polls are not good survey, since just removing history enables a user to vote as many times as they want.

So just how many firearms involved crimes are committed by the legal gun owners ?
Registered gun owners ?

I'd venture that any gun related crime in Canada is with a non registered,
illegally acquired weapon, in the hands of someone not even legally
allowed (PAL) to have said firearm in possession. Including ammo.

My idea of more gun control is in windage, elevation, and
finesse of trigger.

I didn’t say that... it’s not a accurate polling system, because it easily can be tilted.
