    -- Sir John A. Macdonald in Hansard in 1877:851

    In March, 1877, Dominick Blake, the Minister of Justice in the Liberal cabinet of Prime Minister Alexander Mackensie, reported to Parliament that the "...practive of carrying fire-arms [sic] was becoming too common" especially among "...the rowdy and reckless characters and boys and young men". He introduced legislation which specified a criminal penalty for persons "...whosoever should present a pistol, without reasonable cause, at anyone, might be bound over to keep the peace for six months" (Hansard, 1877, p. 850).
    Both Blake and Sir John A. Macdonald had concerns about the proposal. Both recognized that firearms, and handguns in particular, were routinely carried by law-abiding Canadians for self defense. Blake realized that criminals would probably ignore the law "...while the sober, law-abiding citizen would be unprotected". Sir John A. Macdonald stated that the law "...might have the effect of disarming the person who ought to be armed, and arming the rowdies" (Hansard, 1877, p. 851).
    The bill was passed by Parliament in April of 1877; however, the controversy it generated indicated that it established early in Canada's history that it was both reasonable and necessary for law-abiding Canadians to carry firearms, and handguns in particular, as a deterrent to criminal assault.

    Sir John A. Macdonald was adamantly opposed to state regulation of firearms even though many in his own party worried about the proliferation of cheap, easily concealable handguns. He believed the right to carry weapons was an important component of British liberty. As a result, serious regulation had to await his death in 1891.

    In April of 1877, Liberal Justice Minister Edward Blake tells Parliament that the “. . . practice of carrying firearms is becoming too common . . . they were carried by two classes who ought not to carry them . . . the rowdy and reckless characters, and boys and young men.” His government responds by introducing legislation recognising the defence of self, family or property as the only legitimate reason for carrying a “pistol” or “air gun” upon the person. The parliamentary debate over Blake's legislation has a remarkable resemblance to firearm control arguments heard one hundred years later. MP's viewed the world as divided into criminals, whose access to handguns needed to be prohibited, and the law-abiding, whose right to carry guns for self-protection should not be restricted. This dichotomy continues to frame discussions on the ‘gun control' issue. Even Sir John A. Macdonald criticised the proposed legislation as having the effect of “. . . disarming the person who ought to be armed, and arming the rowdies.”

    I'd say Gerry is feeling the heat as more and more Canadians as well as Trudeau's fawning international supporters are starting to peer behind the curtin and coming to the realization the whole lot of them are incompetent fools.
    Yeah seriously, does anybody really believe Trump would make a deal and not think Turdo is a fool?
