That's a sad state you guys are in, sounds like NYC or Sh!tcago style gun control. Only the state and criminals have a chance at self preservation. Stay strong N American brother.
Glad to hear that. If we can open up better lines of communication, I think we can defeat these cockroaches. They don't like the light.
I cannot sit still for what we have in this country. We are told to call "911" but the police who answer insist (correctly) that they cannot guarantee our safety. We are told we have a right to self-defence but that we must exercise it bare-handed. I might be able to manage that some of the time, having grown up way on the wrong side of the tracks but my daughters and seniors have no chance at all.
Here's a bit that's really, really crazy:
A few years ago I bought homicide data from Stats Canada (yeah, my taxes pays to collect it but I have to buy the data. Go figure.). Anyway, I bought that data and I gathered up the same data from the FBI Uniform Crime Statistics (which I did not have to buy). A friend of mine on another forum took my data and made a graphic showing the homicide rate averaged over 2005-2008 for several provinces and the nearest "right to carry" States. Here it is:
I am almost twice as safe in Montana than here in Alberta. In Montana you can buy a pistol with buns and a package of hot dogs (I saw that once in Kalispell). When I have time, I will expand the data to 2011. The comparison will be even more stark.
It takes a special kind of cultivated stupid to review those facts and conclude that CCW laws result in more shootings. If that were true, then I guess we'd have to conclude that Americans are using nerf bullets. U.S. high crime zones come with slums, gangs, drugs and strict gun control laws; it does not come with CCW. The crap is only believed because we have been taught that we cannot trust each other, the implication being that we can only trust government.
We are down the Rabbit Hole.
