    Coming Legislation

    So...I have seen and been read various memos and policy notes on the coming firearms legislation. I do not know what version of those notes and memos they are and I am avoiding specific verbatim quotes lest the persons who have been providing them are identified as being the source. You don't have to read this and I personally don't care if you "believe" it or not. Thats for you. For those that are interested this is what I have been able to distill.

    The OIC prohibitions last week are an interim measure and the coming legislation will not only encompass the OIC particulars but be structured in such a way that legislatively make the law a "living" administrative tool. We sometimes refer to these policies or regulations as "Evergreen" meaning that action can be taken without the need to go through a critical process. In government this is the type of thing dictators and tyrants use...although they don't need a democratic process to do it. You saw the Liberal governments attempt to seize unregulated power in the form of an unlimited spending proposal a month ago. You then saw the Liberals use executive power in the OIC cloaked in the false veil of public safety.

    The new legislation will target and ban or restrict all semi auto rifles, anything resembling a "black type" rifle and anything modifiable such as stocks, VFG's etc etc.

    From more than one document this would also appear to target rimfire firearms for restrictions on what can done. For example no aftermarket tactical stocks or pistol grips etc. For example your 10/22 will only remain a non restricted rifle as long as you don't have a pistol grip or flash hider or anything to stimulate a mentality that could be considered fostering a tactical "fantasy". Thats s weirdly repeated Liberal talking point and it appears they recognize that people with mental health issues are stimulated in various ways but refuse to deal with mental health. For some reason they think taking away a firearm is a substitute for mental health treatment.

    The fallout from this legislation will be much broader than most people realize. The Liberals DO recognize the fallout and in fact have targeted the businesses of firearms retailers specifically through the collateral attack of prohibitions. They know they they are wiping out an industry of retailers, sporting events and related products business by doing this. Most of the gun dealers and gun shops you all know will not survive this ban. The Liberals know it and they consider that part of their plan. One staffer joked with someone i talk to that "all the unemployed gun store idiots are complicit in the gun deaths in this country and that when they are unemployed the can retrain to work in renewable energy."

    The US is watching. Outfitters and hunting operators will feel the fallout as American tourists stay away from Canada in protest. Unlike many people...Americans will boycott over gun issues. While the Liberals seem very aware of some of the collateral damage and destruction targeting specific guns will cause they seem oblivious or in some cases in denial about others.

    Make no mistake. The Liberals do NOT believe for a second that these new laws and prohibitions will in anyway impact organized or street violence. The know that it will continue. They plan on capitalizing on the continue gun violence as a way to push for further restrictions and prohibitions.

    They are fuelled to do what they are doing because of polling. This is political and they want power. While their popularity is slipping they are very away that the CPC is hampered by the PPC and the PQ. They believe that should they lose power that the CPC will only win a minority government and could not undo the legislation around firearms. They are also aware that a majority CPC government would be expected to not only undo that which has been done through the OIC's but the coming legislation. This is why they are moving the legislation through in a way that they are planning to be able to block any change in a minority CPC government.

    The Liberal Party makes money from gun bans. They pass laws that they grandstand on and then campaign for donations. Politics is a business and the Liberal Party has weaponized this business against the democracy that Canada used to be.

    You will all have to make a decision on how to challenge the politics of what they have done. Until there is one voice...one party on the Right along with a determined stance....the Liberals will execute their plan.

    Grips and stocks? God dammit. What's next? Stainless heavy barrels? Synthetic rifle stocks?

    Any shotguns included?

    At this rate I will be using my Ruger No.1.

    Is the PPC still functioning? I thought we were back to just one right Party?

    Ultimately, I expect a similar, but more aggressive approach than New Zealand took. Sockboy wouldn't want to be out done.

    Bans on vertical fore grips...wow. Just when you think the Liberals couldn't become any more petty than they actually are.

    Why anyone would be surprised about any of this, is beyond me. You've been asleep at the wheel if you believe the LPC doesn't know what they're doing.

    In light of the OP it would seem the only solution is to create our own country. Clearly this one has failed and we in the west need a divorce, the reason for which is simply irreconcilable differences. They are not like us and we cannot continue to live under their boot, while they steal our wealth at the same time.

    I think most people out here realize that this OIC is just the beginning and expect more out of Trudeau. I am not surprised one bit and believe SD. It is almost like Trudeau is trying to push us into open revolt out here with all of his policies over the last 5 years.

    Of course he is. And what he's really hoping for is for just one legal gun owner to use one of the recently prohibited firearms in such a revolt.
