The theft of our rights
we will not compromise, because their is no compromise
Leaders robbing its citizens
My Rant (unedited)
Imagine a world that is free, a world that has nations where people can live as they choose. Nations that have leaders who trust those they work for.
In a town there is a family that is getting ready to pack their firearms into their SUV and head into the bush where they can freely set up targets and shoot the guns that they legally acquired.
Can you see it? Well let me tell you, I used to be able to see that, I was actually living it up until two days ago. Now that vision is quickly fading. By the stroke of a pen by the RCMP commissioner, firearms are quickly becoming prohibited…one at a time.
We condemed tyrants and tyrannical regimes in countries, continents far away from our own. Now however, we seem to have the same type of power hungry tyrannical dictators who without moral or ethics are robbing us of our rights.
There are hundreds of thousands of responsible and law abiding firearms owners in this country, but the RCMP commissioner is making perfectly lawful and safe firearms prohibited, he is looking at all of us as if we are criminals and do not have the capacity to own such firearms…even though they were shipped into Canada by legitimate companies, sold to the licensed firearms owner for decades, but overnight these people, the ones who spent their hard earned money on these guns are now considered criminals, because they posses these rifles.
This not only shows the incompetence of this commissioner but also his lack of will to follow the law and treat us ethically.
I own firearms, I have a licence to purchase and posses non restricted and restricted firearms. However, if I were to own a rifle that this man made prohibited by the stroke of a pen I would become a criminal merely by his idiotic and unethical action.
We are supposed to live in a free and democratic society. No person should have the right to steal from the citizens of this nation, no matter if he is an RCMP officer or a politician.
To change the classification of a firearm by anyone is behaviour like that of a ruthless dictator and tyrant.
When I buy a gun from a legitimate dealer, I am buying a legal gun. How dare anyone decide it is no longer legal. I am not a criminal, I have never broken the law and my guns have never walked out of my safe and harmed anyone. Nothing has changed from when I bought them to now…Nothing!
We the firearms owning citizens of Canada, along with our brothers and sisters of the USA are law abiding citizens. We will ban together to stop this tyranny. We live in nations founded by freedom loving people, people who fought, bled and even died to uphold this freedom. We will not allow anyone to rob us of this freedom, if we did, we would be disgracing and disrespecting the memories of our forefathers.
One last thing: there has been talk of 'grandfathering ' in the firearms with the current owners or giving 'financial restitution' to those who turn them in. I do not want either, I bought the legal firearm and did it legally. I have the right therefore to keep it and take it out and use it in a safe and legal manner. Nothing less and nothing more. I do not appreciate the RCMP's attempt to bribe me or attempt to make me feel good about getting robbed by them.
