    Poll, carry to protect life, Alberta Press Leader

    h ttps://albertapressleader.ca/poll-are-you-in-favour-of-citizens-carrying-handguns-to-protect-themselves-like-they-are-allowed-to-in-texas/


    As of last look:

    17062 (95.98%) yes
    636 (3.58%) no
    78 (0.44%) undecided


    The following email sent to my MP and some of the usual suspects.


    Mike,

    As you will see from this poll, a great many Canadians have an abiding interest in seeing need, as a criterium for authorization, removed from the firearms act.

    They want access to handguns with which to defend the lives of their loved ones.

    Based on my personal experience, some 5 million Canadians who are not licenced firearms owners share that interest.

    That is a very conservative estimate.

    Some years ago, after half the members of a round table you sponsored voted in favour of removing need as the key roadblock, you suggested that I continue educating the public.

    It is important for you to understand the following:

    1. My neighbours have a right to defend life, liberty, and property. They must not be required to rely on police, whose function is to investigate and arrest after a crime has been committed.

    2. My neighbours have a right to keep and bear arms, recognized in English common law before Magna Carta improperly placed limitations on the right.

    3. Each day, the number of Canadians who will no longer brook violations of their neighbourís rights grows.

    Your rights in this regard have been violated because of a general sentiment, in some quarters, that it was safe to violate the rights of some for the greater good.

    The greater good has never been served by violating the rights of any individual.

    Perhaps it is a good thing that the efforts of the CPC, to ingratiate themselves to the left, caused traditional supporters to back away in the last election.

    First, the party may finally come to understand that the left will never support a truly Conservative party, but reasonable men and women will.

    Second, perhaps more importantly, the party will come to understand that, for the innocent to survive the depredations of armed thugs, it is sometimes necessary for them to exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

    Government must get out of the way!

    Thank you for your consideration.

    We'd have better luck at abolishing the monarchy, which has to come before we gain any freedoms!

    Your attitude mirrors that of the nitwits Marian Hammer had to deal with in 1980’s Florida, when she began the successful effort to move from “may issue” to “shall issue” that has since raced through the States like a brush fire, and seen many moving to “constitutional carry.”

    There are three issues we must deal with, or lose everything:

    1. Criminalization

    2. Prohibition

    3. The requirement to demonstrate need

    Failure to do so means either digging many holes, or lining up to turn them in.
