Quote: "F]irearms advocates have expressed concern that the regulation of gun shows is unnecessary as the majority of gun show sponsors and exhibitors generally meet safety requirements."

It's not the 'majority'--decent and law-abiding--that we worry about. It's that danged 'minority' who are not law-abiding... That's because only one in a 100 is one too many.

I hope police officers throughout this country speak loudly and clearly that not having such regulations puts everyone at risk, and they especially so.

Real police officers know that such regulations are ineffective, and don't target the problem. They would rather have the resources available to aprehend criminals using guns not law abiding people trading duck guns and moose rifles.

Real police officers would like to have both the regulations and the resources.

We've been threatened that Republicans were going to be coming here after the election in the U.S. Looks like they've been here for a while.

Wow, just mention VicToews and guns and the lib henhouse breaks into quite the squawk.
11:51 PM on 11/13/2012
I Don't know, if you used a sentence like; "Vic sat alone in a room with a loaded gun." .... You won't hear a peep about that.

So firearms advocates say that "the majority of gun show sponsors and exhibitors generally meet safety requirements"? If I've understood correctly, that means MOST of them DON'T USUALLY do anything to endanger other people, so we don't need laws to control those that might. Well, most people don't usually break into homes, rob gas stations, or assault people either, so I guess laws and enforcement of such laws prohibiting those acts are unnecessary as well. What a joke.

The Conservative's stance on gun control has always been purely political and based on fear-mongering to the paranoid. The fact that they are willing to allow gun shows to operate as venues for criminal activity is another example of how little concerned they are with public safety. They want the votes of the gun crowd regardless of the risk to the people and police officers of this country.

I think we need to deport Vic Toews and Stephen Harper to the United States. That's were they belong. We do not need the sick culture of the NRA running Canada.

"Two men were arrested for selling spring-loaded knives and improperly registered guns." Why arrest these men? Fine them to be sure but arrest? Just what exactly is the problem? A spring loaded knife is less dangerous than a kitchen knife. The original prohibition was to make it difficult to conceal a knife which in itself is ludicrous. The guns were registered but improperly; what does that mean? The witchunt by police should be of more concern. The entire article is designed to incite fear in those unfamiliar with firearms. The implication of the boogeyman is really irresponsible and these people should be charged with inciting fear.

Guns = phallic substitutes.
So many ways to market death thanks in large part to the NRA and our own lizard brains.

Invest in our communities if you want to keep crime rates down.

A society can not call itself civilized if it allows the ownership and use of tools whose only purpose is to kill people and animals.
11:27 PM on 11/13/2012
You said it! Canadians should not tolerate firearms. Period!

See at least you have the courage to admit that is your end goal with "gun control" in Canada. This is why every gun owner doesn't trust the government over gun laws. God forbid not everyone in Canada is a urbanite vegan. There are many, many people survive through the year.

Then every society in the world is not civilized.

At least, if we go by your ridiculous standard.

Perhaps we truly aren't as civilized as we would like to believe. Stop and really think about it for a minute ...

Correct. You're catching on. Good for you!
10:37 PM on 11/13/2012
Why repeal a law or regulation like this? It's already in place, it likely doesn't cost the tax payer any extra money, it doesn't infringe on anyone's rights and it forces the gun vendors to be extra responsible. So what's the problem?

It doean't allow Teows "family friendly" policies full reign. You know how family friendly spring loaded knives are.

About as "family friendly" as the serial adulterer & free range fornicator Vic "Free-Moustache-Rides" Toews with his sordid history of banging the babysitter.

Ron James had a good one yesterday. When the Liberals screw up you call the cops, when the Conservatives screw up, you call the coroner.

Ron James is contractually obligated by the CBC to mock Conservatives, just like every other CBC employee.

It will be convenient for murderers now that they won't need to get their guns from across the border.

If you wait until guns are necessary before you get involved in defending your liberty, it's already gone. When guns decide who's in power, it's Maurice Boucher, Saddam Hussein, or Mao tse Tung.

how typical of this party whenever it has anything to do with guns or bible thumping, the country in general gets screwed every single time.

Where is all this "bible-thumping" taking place?

I only ever hear about it here, certainly not from any respectable news sources.

hello Harley long time no see.
southern Alberta is where all the born agains I know come from. People who go to church and believe in the religous beliefs of their church, I am glad for their contentment with their lifestyle and beliefs. It is nice for them if this makes them feel better. I know some people like that and hope they find solace in their beliefs. The thumpers are the ones who talk down and harass those of us who choose to not believe in god or gods and all the ones I personally know are from southern Alberta and have harassed people to join them or go to hell for years now.
