The axe, crowbar, knife and gun are common tools used on Prairie farms, all of which can kill.
In Canada, 37.8 per cent of homicides are stabbings and 31.2 per cent of homicides are shootings.
The Liberal government, during the implementation and introduction of Bill C-68 (gun control) spent millions of taxpayers’ dollars to make law-abiding gun owners look bad.
Canadian citizens, who do not understand legal hunting and shooting sports, soon became prejudiced against legal gun owners.
It would be more logical for the Liberals to have knife control, where every man, woman and child would have to take an eight-hour course, pass a practical written test, then buy a licence to be permitted to handle and buy knives.
However, this would be as stupid as gun control.
Successive Liberal governments have gone after the law-abiding gun owner rather than the criminals. The Liberal motto since the 1982 Bill of Rights has been “soft on crime, tough on legal gun owners.”
A lot of police would like guns taken away because they feel they would have an advantage. The fact that the RCMP have to enforce gun laws makes people untrusting of law enforcement.
If the Liberal government decides to ban handguns, it will leave handguns only in the hands of criminals and the police.
