    Calgary Police Chief DOES NOT Back Handgun Bans !

    At least some Police Chiefs are using some common sense , and are not afraid to speak out .

    Calgary Police Chief Doesn’t Back Handgun Bans: Calgary Herald
    2 Jan 2020

    TheGunBlog.ca — Calgary Police Chief Mark Neufeld doesn’t support Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s goal of criminalizing honest handgun owners, according to an interview published this week in the Calgary Herald.

    Neufeld is at least the 10th active or retired police leader across Canada to publicly question Trudeau’s plans to help municipalities expel lawful residents by prohibiting their handguns.

    Neufeld told the Herald in a Dec. 30 article that fighting “gun crime” is a priority for him in 2020.

    Unlike the prime minister, Canadian police generally prefer going after the known “bad guys” instead of the known “good guys.”

    Calgary Herald Quote

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has signalled his government’s intention to allow municipalities to ban handguns.

    But Neufeld questioned how effective that type of legislation would be in Calgary. He said laws are already in place to deal with those behind most, if not all, of the shootings in the city.

    “The idea now to delegate that authority down to the municipal councils could potentially result in a patchwork of bylaws across the province. So, for instance, maybe handguns wouldn’t be lawful in Calgary, but they would be in Airdrie and Cochrane, and so at some point, it just gets confusing for the citizens,” the police chief said.

    “I guess the issue that will have to be reconciled is that with the shootings we’re having in Calgary, they’re not being perpetrated by lawful, law-abiding handgun owners . . . They’re saying, ‘Why should we be punished when it isn’t us that’s out there creating the problem?’ And they’re right about that.”

    Heritage, Tradition

    Hunting and sport shooting are at the heart of Canadian culture, heritage and tradition.

    About 2.2 million men and women have a firearm licence, and millions more hunt and shoot safely and responsibly under the control of permit holders.

    About 300,000 licence holders own at least one police-registered handgun.

    Trudeau promised one of the biggest confiscations against honest citizens of any democracy in history, starting with 250,000 hunting and sporting rifles. He didn’t announce any new measures to take away guns from violent offenders or gangs.

    A shame that Neufeld has to serve under Nenshi's group of civic imbeciles. You can bet Nenshi & Co would LOVE to be able to limit/ban handguns in the city under the guise of reducing crime.
    I'm sure their collective panties are already wet just thinking about the possibility.

    I suspect, “Ban everything, yesterday!”

    When he supported a revitalization of the LGR, he got hammered and backed off. I'm still waiting for a response on my e-mail from one of his acolytes regarding this, if I don't hear back by early next week i'll phone.....

    A police chief gets its. Why can't the PM get it? Unless he intentionally doesn't want to get it.

    Doesn't matter what the mayors think. Jason Kenny isn't about to allow municipalities to ban guns.

    I'd wager the Chiefs are mostly anti-confiscation for budgetary reasons vs any libertarian philosophical sentiments.
    Those willing to trade freedom for the facade of security deserve neither.

    More to the point, why do so many firearms owners not “get it?”

    Trudeau and company don’t give a rare rat’s ass about criminals with guns.

    It is about you!

    As for what Kenny will do, that is anyone’s guess.
