I still think that the 257 Roberts is a Sleeper and if one was forced by circumstances. You could do a whole lot worse than having a ifle in this fine Old School calibers! Grumpy
Despite Canada’s already strict gun control regime, anti-gun activists in the Great White North are pushing for even more gun control after they successfully lobbied for an “assault weapons” ban earlier this year.
On a call with reporters Monday, the coordinator of the anti-gun group PolySeSouvient said she’s tired of waiting for promised gun control legislation from the liberal government, and she called on Public Safety Minister Bill Blair to make good.
“We urge minister Blair to return to the gun file with force and to aim to meet his commitments without delay,” Heidi Rathjen said.
Blair, who works as part of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government, assured anti-gun activists he’s working to make their every wish come true.
“There is more to do, and we’re committed to doing it,” Blair’s spokeswoman, Mary-Liz Power, said Monday. “We will introduce legislation designed to deliver on the promises that we made to Canadians in the last election.”
But Nicolas Johnson, who runs the pro-gun website TheGunBlog.ca, questioned Blair’s assertion that he speaks for all Canadians.
“We have to remember that the radicals pushing for even more prohibitions-confiscations in Canada’s severely regulated firearm industry are a tiny fringe with a few influential allies in media and politics,” he told GunsAmerica. “Canada has millions of families and individuals who hunt and shoot safely and responsibly. We manage millions of guns and hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo safely and responsibly 24/7/365. We are the mainstream.”
Back in May, the national government outlawed 1,500 models of what officials consider “assault-style” weapons. These rifles and pistols can no longer be legally used, sold, or imported. But the ban came via regulation rather than legislation, and PolySeSouvient wants Trudeau’s government to make the ban permanent.
The group also has a laundry list of additional demands, including ending the importation and manufacture of handguns.
Claire Smith and Ken Price, parents of a girl who was shot in Toronto in July of 2018, said at the PolySeSouvient news conference that the government should act swiftly to ban handguns nationwide.
“It’s been over two years since our daughter was shot,” Price said during the news conference. “And from our perspective, there has been zero legislative progress on handguns and the situation keeps getting worse.”
Along with the handgun ban, the group wants the following restrictions:
- A system of pre-authorization for guns to ensure only new models inspected and authorized by the federal authorities can enter the Canadian market;
- Limit firearm magazines to five rounds;
- Give police officers easier access to commercial sales record data to help detect bulk gun purchases;
- Invest significant efforts and resources in strengthening the screening and monitoring of gun-license applicants and licensed owners.
Blair has also promised imminent legislation to create a new “evergreen” framework for classification of firearms to ensure federal intentions can’t be easily overridden.
He said, “Afghanistan 2010?” Again, although surprised this time, I said slowly “yessss.”
He then told me that he recognized me, my injuries, and my face. He told me he never knew if I survived or not.
Marc Vincequere is his name. He flys w United now. Crazy small world. He was the pilot that flew me out of Afghanistan.
I saw this rant from some one on Farcebook and it was an epic rant and I can’t locate the owner to give the props. This statue is a statue of Robert E Lee. I have a quick post of U.S Grant that we had discussed a couple days ago that I will put up in a couple of days.
“Some of you have done NOTHING with your life and you’re mad. You have a college degree & a smart phone with access to virtually *anything* and you can barely get out of bed in the morning while you spit on people who built a whole world with nothing but a horse, map, & axe. You’ve made nothing with access to everything. You’ve conquered nothing. Hell you can’t even conquer yourself. So go tear it all down. Scream into the void how unfair it all is. It’s not that you’ve wasted your short time here. Surely not. Don’t bother with your own legacy you’re busy shitting on the long dead who aren’t here to care. Go burn down every Starbucks. That’ll show them. Torch the Target. Tear down every monument. Deface every memorial. But what have you built? What do you leave behind? So take your benzos. Watch your porn. Get Uber to drop off your dinner. Buy an adult coloring book. Have sex with strangers to ease your crippling anxiety. It’s not you. It’s the system really. It isn’t fair. Go cancel someone. Dox someone. They deserve it. You’re the good guy. Don’t write an epic novel worth building a statue to remember you. Go troll seven year old problematic tweets ever on the hunt for the boogeymen. See now you’ve accomplished something. Cancel everyone. You’re a warrior now. A real hero. And lastly whatever you do never ever take even a moment to self reflect on your own failures. Never own them. Never take a hint of responsibility. Remember you’re just a helpless victim of circumstances beyond your control. This all means nothing. Its like you weren’t even here.”
Apparently I and people like me are “dinosaurs” and she and her”allies” are wanting me and mine to hurry up and “die” or they will encourage us into the boxcars for the gulag ride to the “reeducation camps” to either be re educated or die” for our new overlords” I guess that is their plan…….Well I really don’t see that happening.
Another point, You see her and the soy boy next to her smiling, they thing that they will be pardoned by the new overlords because they were such “good allies” shoot, they will find themselves along with the other palefaces off to the gulags for “re-education and death like the other dinosaurs to the great plan” and the fact that they are woke ain’t going to matter . stupid idiots.
Somehow they think that we dinosaurs will just roll along with the great plan to fade away, the problem is that we are getting pretty pissed and they want to keep playing games and to us in middle America, we keep seeing our ways under attack, our traditions under attack, who we are under attack and they keep pushing and it will come to a point and one day…
One day the folks we will just get tired of the incessant pushing, insults, assaults, murders, and the government doing nothing, but mouthing platitudes and being impotent,and allowing the left to run amuck, but charge anybody from the conservative side and you wonder if the government supports the riots and the protestors and we will realize the age of the vigilante is back and it will be on like donkey Kong.
Do I want to see it…..No…but do I fear it will happen….possible if the left keep pushing like they do, the people on the right will get tired, if it and it will be on. You will have the media clutching at pearls right now, but if someone on the right does something, the media will condemn them whereas they have not condemned the fruitcakes on the left for the same behavior first. And most people on the right will see the double standard of the media and tune them out and the media will lose even more credibility.
I normally take “infowars” with a huge grains of salt but Matt Bracken did a great job explaining how Antifa operates and how they work the riots and chaos and how they formed up from the initial training and more training. the video is 48 minutes long and well worth the watch and explains how they operate and overwhelm the police and cause the destruction they do. Also he explains what most likely will happen next.
