That's why lots of Canadians are wanting the opportunity to prove we can be responsible with a sidearm on our hips. We also find it a little silly that police up here can carry a sidearm with out an RPAL (licence required to own a handgun), but yet people who have gone through the day or two long course aren't allowed to carry a sidearm......even though a civilian is most likely getting more range time in then the average police officer is.

Oh trust me, I'm trying man. It took this petition almost a year to get 45 signatures, since sharing it on the 18th we're already up to 497, that's over ten times the signatures in not even a quarter of the time. Right now I'm trying to get it out through Twitter as well since it's on a few different Facebook pages as, others have also shared it through their Facebook too.

I'd ask you guys south of the border to sign it as well, but something tells me that any signatures from those not living with in Canada wouldn't count and would probably cause more harm then good.

i doubt that any signatures from south of you would have any merit. i would sign it myself if i thought it would help your cause though. i wish all the best of luck. i believe LAC's should be afforded the opportunity to be able to protect themselves at all times.

That's why I haven't asked. Just seen our version of the NRA post about what laws we'd like to see changed, gave my opinion and put a link to the petition there......with in a minute or so, we gained another four signatures.

Frankly, I'd support both CC or OC, and simultaneously support harsher penalties for those who use guns to commit a crime, and I mean a real crime like robbery or assault or murder, not self-defense or some paper crime.

I'm a firm believer in holding people accountable and punishing them for what they actually DO, not what they COULD DO. If someone wants to carry a gun, let them, but if they commit a crime make the punishment harsh so that people think before they do something. If they're too dumb to think about what they're doing, then they should be taken off the streets.

I find that every Person should be educated about Firearms and Safety. Most People are afraid because they are not introduced to it and not knowing anything about it gives a negative impression. I hope it will all change and support the open carry.
