We're The International Rifle Association And We Love Our WMDs

That's why we recommend that this matter be taken to the United Nations and urge them to pass a resolution modeled on the Second Amendment as in: "The national right to keep and bear weapons of any kind shall not be infringed." Once we're all armed to the teeth, peace can reign throughout the world. At least that's the plan.

Talking About Wildfires And Climate Change Isn't Playing Politics

Why does Elizabeth May get a media beating for stating we have another terrible example of our need to be very, very serious about climate change? Just like other catastrophic events, a given tragedy is proportional to the tough questions that necessarily follow. "But not now"? May was immediately berated by Justin Trudeau, other politicians, some of the media and social media. The charge? She was "trying to make a political argument out of one particular disaster." How's that? Stating that climate change is political, instead about science, is exactly the problem.

Distrust of Government Is at the Root of the U.S. Gun Control Issue

I suspect that millions of Americans have a deep distrust of government in general and their own government in particular. While they go about their daily business like the citizens of most advanced nations, they always harbour a fear that "the government" (in one form or another) is going to take their property, suppress their rights or maybe even imprison them.

We are human. We have a hardwired need to connect. And we, as entrepreneurs and businesspeople, want our companies to have that human connection, too. Whether you succeed or not, depends on how you approach it. Nail the brand first, then the social media tactics, and you'll be moving in the right direction. And ahead of most of the pack.

The Right to Bear Nukes

Until recently, I was an advocate for gun control. However, thanks to the arguments of the National Rifle Association, I now favor the adoption of the widest interpretation of the Second Amendment. The logic relied on by gun advocates is, as they say, bulletproof.

How Our Nation Supports Illegal Weapons

On Monday I asked Canada's foreign affairs minister about the Arms Trade Treaty. Shamefully, the Conservative government acted as a spoiler during the treaty negotiations. The only civil society representative on Canada's delegation was from the gun lobby -- a man who was hailed by the NRA as one of its "beacons of hope." Hundreds of thousands of people die every year as a result of armed conflict. This treaty will help them. Dozens of countries have realized this, and have joined together to pursue a safer and more prosperous future. Canada should join the world in ending the illegal flow of weapons to the world's worst conflicts.

Canadians have a vested interest in following the U.S. gun debate, both to understand how laws passed there laws can affect us practically and to learn lessons from the mistakes that can be made by painting intricate issues with broad stokes.

How We Should Talk When We Talk About Guns

Despite the inescapable emotion involved in such a tragedy involving the loss of innocent lives, both pro and anti-gun lobbyists need to approach the argument in an unbiased and dispassionate manner. The debate needs to be depoliticized and examined at a strictly human level, where gun-related crimes have caused unspeakable horror and heartache.

Real Villains of Batman Shooting are Lax Gun Laws

The gas-masked gunman who opened fire at a theatre full of people, killing twelve and injuring dozens more, reportedly had a shotgun, two pistols, an assault rifle, gas canisters, and potentially explosives in his home. What I don't understand is how it can possibly be alright for a civilian to have access to these kinds of weapons.

Why it Was Right to Shoot Down the Long Gun Registry

Peter Worthington | Posted 07.16.2012 | Canada

By abandoning long gun registry, the federal government is saving the taxpayer considerable billions. It was a foolish law from the start, in that it made criminals out of farmers and people in rural areas who didn't trust government assurances, or simply couldn't be bothered to register their rifles and shotguns.
