    and yes every adult should be able to buy a gun. If a certain person is to be prohibited from owning/buying guns, they should not be allowed to roam freely in society.
    Only people I don't think that should be able to roam free are pedos, rapist, criminals with violent past and hipsters. If you trust every adult with a gun? you got some issues.

    As a gun owner I barely trust most people.. Wily nilly give idiots guns. See how well that goes.

    Your logic is flawed, If your are not allowed to own or buy a gun, there is reasons. Doesn't mean those reasons make you a menace to society.
    There are legally blind people who shoot. Handguns, no less.

    Engineers are shifty, though.

    Had to fight for it. Says it all though. Im not interested in delaying my renewal because i send in a photo with a strainer. I also dont want to be on the RCMP radar. As im sure they would think i was crazy and would be treated differently under the law. Its special treatment for muslims I tell ya.

    A stainless steel strainer mounted at the apex of a person is likely to give a strong radar reflection,
    literally (commercial radar), and figuratively (photo to RCMP).

    The 'sewn sheath' bit was a compromise for grade school children, to get around the Zero Tolerance no weapons policy that expels children for brining cutlery in their lunch boxes.
    The 'plastic knife' bit was a compromise for aircraft.

    Most male Sikh adults carry a real knife. It's sharp and useable. Given what the young Sikh men are taught about it, what its for, and the Sikh societal rules built up around it, I have no problem with that, and no problem with MPs carrying them in the Parliaments of Canada.

    I'm comfortable with Sikh kirpans not because of freedom of speech or freedom of religion, but because of what it's actually for, and for the philosophy and societal responsibility of what it represents and demands of the carrier even when it's not enough.

    The kirpan has some similarities to, and differences from, a policeman's badge & gun. Some people feel safe under the protection of police knowing they will respond when trouble brews, and some are scared by the policeman's badge or the policeman's gun. Obviously not identical, just a loose parallel.
