    He'll have no problem with his image in the mirror ... like I said before ... HE HAS NO CONCEPT OF FREEDOM OR FREE CHOICE

    Of slightly over 2 million Canadian gun owners about 1.999 million are clones of this type.

    Today is Remembrance Day

    My father returned from Europe with two bullet wounds, shoulder and jaw.

    If I learned nothing else, it is that soldiers fight to provide us with an opportunity to be free.

    We honour their sacrifices, if we accept that opportunity and fight daily for that freedom.
    Gun Control is about making it unlawful for you to use, carry, or possess a firearm.

    All restrictions/prohibitions on the use, carriage, or possession of firearms must be repealed.

    Middle ground?

    What middle ground?

    Many if not most Canadian gun owners owe brave guys like your dad an apology for dropping the ball and letting commie garbage like the Trudeaus take our rights and property away.

    Where we are and where we could be.

    A reminder, from a gentleman whose name I cannot recall. My bad.

    We will never find the right person, or government, to fix this mess.

    We must create an environment in which the wrong person, or government, finds it necessary to do so.

    When a significant portion of the population demands repeal of the offending law and regulation, that will happen.

    That significant portion is only likely to come from three segments of the populace.

    1. Licenced owners.

    2. Unlicenced owners.

    3. Non owners whose only interest in firearms is for their utility as life saving tools.

    Each will step up only if they see something in it for themselves and their loved ones, and develop a reasonable expectation of gaining it.

    The problem is that none of the parties is willing to stand up for us, significant portion or not.

    True.

    Most will not stand up for others, but many will stand up for themselves.

    I hate to agree with 2 for sure but he has a point. When you overreach, you are grasping at air, and that's what you will end up with...Gun owners need a new angle on guns, something that will make the majority to look at them with a new understanding.

    That cowardly approach got us where we are today.

    And you and he want more of it?

    Sit down.
