“In December 2006, I released unpublished Statistics Canada tables showing that of the total homicides committed between 1997 and 2005, only 2.27 percent were committed with a registered gun,” explains Breitkreuz. “Only 1.21 percent were committed with a firearm registered to the accused murderer, and 2.14 percent were committed by a person that held a valid firearms licence (see link below). Obviously, law-abiding gun owners aren’t the problem and yet the Government of Ontario and the City of Toronto want to ban the handguns owned by honest citizens.
And the liberals are the party of Ontario or is it Toronto. Toronto where the airport terminals are numbered 1, 3 and 2. See they don’t go in order.
“Why is there a Liberal, NDP and Bloc preoccupation with guns owned by citizens that aren’t the problem?” asks Breitkreuz. “Remember that 102 of 108 handgun homicides (94 per cent) in 2006 were committed with unregistered handguns or the registration status was unknown. We need mandatory minimum sentences for using weapons in violent crimes. Knife and club attacks occur at a rate almost four times higher than guns.
Why let facts get in the way of dubious lefty emotions?
And why isn’t Stats Can publishing the tables that show the % that are registered? Could they have a liberal bias, nyahhhh, that wouldn’t happen to big government would it?
