“From what the article says, he just had to sign on the dotted line. This couldn't have waited? I am not that gullible as to think that this was not a planned thing, and therefore a snub of Parliament (ie you and me, the lowly taxpayer). He could have set an alternate date for this. He is laughing at us, and anyone who doesn't get that is naiive in my opinion.”

“I fail to understand how the Canadian people put up with this egregious behavior. He is simply mocking our parliament and therefore us taxpayers. This is beyond irresponsible! And yet, I shouldn't be so surprised. He is already in contempt of Parliament regarding his cover up of the torture of the Afghan detainees. The man has no respect for us. He is arrogant and entitled, and as slippery as a snake.”

“As Canadians, we have to do something about this PM. We cannot continue to allow him to do this to us. He is completely disrespectful of us and of the truth. He is like a bull in a china shop. He is making decisions about our participation in the UN. How dare he. He prorogues parliament for his own personal convenience. This is untenable.”

“I think it's cowardly to carry a gun on your hip. I challenge Wayne Lapierre to go to Canada where men are men and fearlessly walk the streets of our cities without weapons . I bet we will see a yellow bellied sap sucker for the first time in years. Or not. Lol.”

“LOL. Yeah, we needed more people with guns today in that area. Yeah. That would have held the death count down. Right. Or more likely, we'd have hundreds of innocents caught in a wild west crossfire. F/F”

“Actually, yes you are right. People kill people.. with guns, knives, drugs, motorized vehicles (cars, trucks, boats, semis), poisonings, blunt for trauma (bats, pipes, lumber and any other convenient item with mass), suffocation, prescription medication overdoses, child neglect, locking their kids in cars with the motor running or in the hot sun,....”

“They showed a picture of the deceased shooter, so yes....
I am staring at a gun right now, it isn't killing anyone. Amazing how that works...”

“A 3-year-old knows right from wrong and that you don't take what doesn't belong to you. To me these senators' actions amount to theft or embezzlement. They need to go to jail, just like one of us lowly taxpayers would.”

“I have had a kindle for 3 years. I am sick and tired of waiting for the Kindle Fire, plus obviously, pricing is not fair for Canadians. Why all the attention to Canada now? The Kindle Fire has been out for years. Plan to stick with my PlayBook which has the Kobo App.”

“I lived in America and saw guns available in jewelry stores, grocery stores etc. In Canada we don't carry guns on the streets, to our schools or anywhere outside hunting areas or ranges. I feel safe because of that. We trust our neighbours here. You, quickdraw, better be fast when some dude with a gun decides to blow your head off because you look like his ex-wife's lover. Good luck with that precious 2nd amendment of yours (which, by the way, was drafted when semi-automatics weren't around).”

“Semi-automatic weapons are designed to kill many humans in a few minutes. Cars are not.
Statistic: Approximately 8,000 homicides annually occur with gunshot wounds. About 16,000 commit suicide with handguns. Nearly 1,000 die in gun related accidents each year
Statistic: In 2010, guns took the lives of 31,076 Americans in homicides, suicides and unintentional shootings. This is the equivalent of more than 85 deaths each day and more than three deaths each hour.1
73,505 Americans were treated in hospital emergency departments for non-fatal gunshot wounds in 2010.
Oh, and your upside down Canadian flag is an insult to Canadians everywhere. But you probably weren't knowledgeable about that.”

“Rope (hanging) is the number one method of suicide - not guns.

“You watch too much tv I think. I wonder how many people that are supporting semi-automatic weapons being sold on the streets of America have actually had to use them in real life situations. Lol. People like you swallow the culture of fear that the NRA dishes. Well, they are laughing all the way to the bank. Are your wife and daughter within your sight at all times? If so, you have real paranoia problems and issues of control. If not, a shooting in America can happen AT ANY TIME simply because of the proliferation of semi-automatics in America now. So, go ahead and worship Wayne Lapierre. You live by the sword, you die by the sword. Definitely not a life I would aspire to.”

“I pay my NRA membership but this does not mean I follow their ideals 100% ok? They claim the second amendment is for hunting and sporting. This is wrong. It was written into the Bill of Rights so that the feds can look at it and see that we shall forever maintain our right to keep and bear arms, not for hunting or target shooting but for defense. Self defense and defense against tyranny. I actually do not like LaPierre much. And for your information, my wife is a school teacher and will soon be armed to protect herself and her classroom. My daughter is an armed college student and both are trained as well as I am in firearm safety, use and defense tactics. Keeping arms is not 'living by the sword' as you claim. It is simply protection against harm. To answer your first question, I have not had to use my rifle in self defense and hope that I never do. But I will be prepared to do so. I do not support any weapons being 'sold on the streets' and not many people do. Your argument is an old one and will not stand.”

“Single action guns are for hunting and can be used for self defense. Anything else is for people who are paranoid and therefore should not own a gun.”

“Automobiles, are merely a mechanism for transportation - a motorized conveyance, which we may rightfully choose to use, allowing us to exercise our inalienable right, to travel the highways freely - from point A to point B, and perhaps points in between.
Automobiles equipped with engines, capable of producing 100 horse power, can get you anywhere you wish to go - pretty quick too.
All automobiles, capable of producing more than100 horse power, ought to be banned.

“the words of a dictator. How do I defend myself, my wife and my daughter with a single shot rifle or pistol? What if there are 4 or 5 guys involved? Paranoid? Not so much. Prepared and properly trained, very much so.”

“Geez! Can't you people tell the difference between fantasy and reality? These folks are speaking up against gun violence and assault weapons. It's their personal opinions, not a d*mn movie. Kudos to them. At least they are doing something.
Also, instead of jumping in with your own brilliant thoughts, maybe you could have taken the time to read the petition. They are not all movie stars. And, the petition is a good one.
By the way, what have you personally done to end the bloodbaths via assault weapons in America?”
