Well folks, I've heard there are many people in society who don't like guns. I've heard they think gun confiscation is the way to go, and that any legal gun owner poses a risk of becoming a homicidal manic.
Well, right now they’re getting their wish. The order-in-council pushed by the Liberal Party has effectively criminalized law abiding Canadians overnight.
I’ll tell all of you gun grabbers right now, if you really cared about human life the last thing you would be concerning yourselves with is disarming licensed, law abiding firearms owners.
Right now, there are approximately 240 people killed by homicidal maniacs with firearms per year. Put simpler that is 0.63 out of every 100,000 Canadians. Let’s keep in mind this would still be the case if the homicidal person in question didn't have a gun, homicidal people kill because they're demented, not because they have access to a firearm. Do you think peaceful, licensed firearms owners are just waking up and deciding to kill people? Actually, the rate of murder committed by homicidal maniacs who just happen to be legal firearms owners is exceptionally low, at approximately 0.04 out of 100,000. That‘s correct, all of the government focus and hundreds of millions of dollars is being wasted on this .04. Now let’s put that in perspective.
Firstly, if you're demanding gun control you're ignoring the fact that gun owners are one-third to one-half as likely to commit a homicide than the average Canadian. Statistically, the same people demanding gun confiscation are two to three times more likely to commit murder than a licensed firearms owner.
Anti gunners are also noticeably silent about opioid abuse and cartels running drugs across our borders, which kills almost 5,000 Canadians every year. This equates to approximately 13 out of every 100,000 Canadians dying due to opioids. Significantly higher, to the tune of 325 times as many as are harmed by murdered who also happen to be licensed firearms owners.
If the anti firearms crowd truly cared so deeply about human lives then why don't they equally advocate against alcohol abuse? Approximately 15,000 Canadians die every single year due to alcohol abuse. That is almost 40 people for every 100,000 Canadians. Really puts that .04 number to shame doesn’t it. Almost 1000 times as many people die due to alcohol abuse and nothing but silence from the anti gunners.
The flu and pneumonia kill 23 people per 100,000 Canadians. But which one of you are advocating for healthcare reform? I can guarantee it’s not a single one of you.
Let's take a look at gang violence, as 60% of homicides committed with a firearm are attributed to them. Obviously, legislation that's passed concerning gun control will be ignored by these criminals, who constitute a majority cause behind firearm deaths. So what are you doing to stop gang violence?
Anti firearms advocates relentlessly attack statistically the most peaceful people in Canada. While doing so they are ignoring tens of thousands of preventable deaths in numerous other areas. If you’re for firearms confiscation you don’t care about the sanctity of human life. The only thing you're interested in is control, creating a false sense of security and virtue signaling.
