    One senator said that 2013 was not a pivot year but rather an inflection point and StatCan said it was a good year for that.
    He talked about how despite the huge volume of letters from firearms owners, he didn't believe that most firearms owners were opposed to Bill C71, but rather that most firearms owners were in favour of Bill C71 and even tighter gun control, and added that polls say that Canadians are in favour of C71 and even tighter gun control.
    He said that this bill was necessary to save lives, so he was voting yea.
    He continued with the same stats that CBC did, namely

    Firearm Homicide
    1991: 271
    2013: 134
    2017: 266

    CBC Narrator: "In fact the number of firearm homicides declined by about 50% during the years of the gun registry (1991-2012), and has climbed by about the same amount since it was repealed (2013-2017)"


    ------------

    The registry really started in 2004. That's when we first had 6 million guns registered. It certainly wasn't in 1991.

    In 2005, it was 224. The average 2005-2009: 197
    In 2016, it was 223. The average 2012-2016: 172
    So on average, since the registry was removed, it's been lower then the years right after the registry was there.

    And that lying SOS was able to say that with a straight face...? My blood pressure, normally textbook, is about to become volcanic.

    I guess being tone deaf to all but the out of touch call of the Liberal is a senatorial requirement these days. I can't believe the arrogance of this festering bag of dog exhaust.

    Just like Trudeau claiming he never pressured JWR. Liberals just consider lying as a job requirement. A skill to be mastered. Never flinch even when you KNOW that the people know you're lying.

    Today was a 'possible sitting' day for the Senate but I haven't seen anything thus far and it's disappeared from the calendar as even possible, so I'm guessing the next time Bill C71 will be discussed will be Monday May 13.
