    Pro-gun rally at Polytechnique memorial shows 'profound lack of respect,' shooting victim says

    Pro-gun rally at Polytechnique memorial shows 'profound lack of respect,' shooting victim says - Montreal

    A pro-gun lobby group is facing widespread condemnation for its decision to hold a rally at the park commemorating the Polytechnique Montréal massacre, Canada's worst mass shooting.

    The rally is planned for Dec. 2, just days before the 28th anniversary of the shooting, and aims to bring attention to what the lobby group calls "excessive firearm control."

    Nathalie Provost, who has been a prominent advocate for gun control since surviving the Polytechnique shooting, said the planned rally "shows a profound lack of respect for the families of victims."

    The Place du 6-décembre-1989, a Montreal park commemorating the 14 women killed on Dec. 6, 1989, has become a "place of peace and commemoration" for all victims of gun violence, said Provost, who was shot four times.

    Politicians were also quick to speak out against the planned protest.

    Mayor Valérie Plante said on Twitter it showed a "lack of judgment, but also an unacceptable lack of respect towards the victims of this tragedy and all women victims of violence."

    Quebec Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux also condemned the move, but said it was within the group's rights to hold the demonstration.

    Guy Morin, an organizer with the group behind the demonstration, Tous contre un registre Québécois des armes à feu (All against a Quebec gun registry), acknowledged the choice of location is controversial.

    It was chosen, he admitted, to get attention.

    He argued the Polytechnique shooting is unfairly used by gun control advocates to further their agenda.

    Registry still needed, advocate says

    In Provost's view, however, there remains more to be done to curtail gun violence in Canada, especially since the federal long-gun registry was abolished in 2012.

    Quebec is in the midst of establishing its own long-gun registry. Last month, a Quebec Superior Court judge rejected an attempt by the National Firearms Association to halt the registry's creation.

    Louise de Sousa, whose daughter Anastasia was killed during a 2006 mass shooting at Dawson College, said she hopes the registry will be completed soon.

    Like Provost, de Sousa said anti-gun control groups have a right to express their views, but the memorial park isn't the right place to do it.

    "There's certain ways of doing it," she told CBC Montreal's Daybreak.

    Someone should tell Provost the registry didn't stop the Dawson College killer.

    ....which just goes to show that just because someone has a gun, doesn't mean they're gonna kill people [they shoot].
    Otherwise this grave-dancer wouldn't be here to babble into a mediaphone.

    Gotta love the meaning-twist the mayor gives, which not-so-subtly alludes to the idea that only women are impacted by violence, with the topic of gun-violence being focal, despite the fact that men are the overwhelming majority as `victims of gun violence`.

    Anyone taking bets as to how fast this thing degenerates into a screaming, plausibly violent protest from gungrabbers and leftists?

    I can see why they are going on the offensive here. As a gun owner, I am tired of being held collectively responsible for a crime that happened when I was only three, and many new gun owners weren't even born when Lepine/Gharbi threw his tantrum. I can understand why they are angry at having their rights threatened for a crime that happened nearly 30 years ago, and is ancient history.

    When you push a group of people for years, you should not be surprised when they shove back...

    I certainly hope so. The far left have lost their filter with both Brexit and Trump. The more they show their hand, the better...

    Why? Just because it is a documented fact will mean nothing to her. Facts are useless when it comes to rabid anti's.

    For many years I would go to the UofC to participate in the grave dancing. My message was "If the second women in line to be shot had had the RIGHT to defend herself and chose to do so by shooting garbi we would be celebrating the life's achievements of 13 women"
    Within minutes however security threw me out as the group that habitually shows up for these get togethers does not want facts or reason to interfere with their grave dancing

    Like lefties know anything of respect.... how many anti-English or pro-French/separation rallies or events have been held on the Plains of Abraham for example?

    typical leftist anti gun clowns...these people just dont get it..gun control doesnt work, never has ,never will. It is getting tiresome listening to all the rabid anti gun folks scream and yell about blood in the streets etc etc, when that is clearly not the case in Canada.

    Shows they're profoundly pissed off. Being treated by the government & public like you're carrying full blown AIDs probably does something to the psyche.
