The rate of firearms offenses in the violent crime category is 6 per 100,000.

The homicide rate is 2 per 100,000, and the attempted murder rate is 2 per 100,000.

Considering all the other data in that chart, are we not focusing on the wrong thing?

Arson property crimes are 30 per 100,000. Do we need a licensing system for matches and lighters?

Opinions are one thing. The graph posted by awndray, if accurate, is considerably more damaging for us Canucks, IMHO.

How is it damaging?

80% of firearm related deaths according to the rcmp's website are suicides. People are definitely focusing on the wrong things.

Exactly. Just imagine how many lives would have been saved if the money spent on the gun registry was poured into public health programs? Things like suicide prevention, mental illness awareness, and addiction treatment, just to name a couple. I'd bet the farm, that it would be more than the gun registry ever did.

I couldn't agree more, but, in my opinion, it's all about optics. For every person out there needing help with a mental health or personal issue there are thousands of gun owners. What would make a better headline, a thousand people helped with increased program funding or tens of thousands of guns registered? Optics......and bigger numbers are better.

Are you sure?

Canadian population: ~35M
Canadian licensed gun owners: ~2M (~5.5%)
Canadians affected by mental illness: ~7M (~20%)

I think it's more a matter of sensationalism.

Precisely.
Must feed off the emotions, and fear is much more powerful than compassion

It all boils down to what will buy votes.

I never would have guessed that and that's exactly what I did, guess. Thanks for the stats.

I wouldn't have guessed at those numbers either, wow. If only there was some way to convince the government that mental illness was a problem....

Easier to blame guns, then it is to accept that normal joe down the road might end up lighting your house on fire because he stopped taking his meds.

This is without a doubt the best information I have seen in a long time - would you like to run for Prime Minister of Canada?

Excellent video. The fact that violent crime has been dropping in the US for years while gun ownership and liberal [excuse the expression] CCW laws have come into effect can't be repeated too often.

The sad part is that the spokesman's suggestion that working on the _areas_ where violence is greatest is least likely to pan out. Given that the US government at many levels....federal, municipal and state...are undergoing severe financial strains, as well as ideological insanity, those violent, crime-ridden inner cities will likely get worse for a long time, rather than better. The good thing is that there is an alternative media [the _illegitimate media_ to paraphrase Shotgun Joe Biden] to spread the word, rather than the hopelessly biased and intellectually bankrupt MSM.

Another great video from this guy. I saw another on this forum where he talks about "labeling" and how is is used to generate emotional rather than rational responses. I have even caught myself using the label "assault weapon"; how many of you have used this label? Created by the gun controlistas, to create a fear response in gun discussions. We need to be very careful ourselves, that we don't get drawn into a game where the anti's make up their own terms, for accomplishing their agenda. Think about that, please..... Cheers!
