Canada Rampage Proof Gun Control Won’t Prevent Tragedies

BBC Reports Nova Scotia 2020 Shooting
Alan Gottlieb and the CCRKBA argue that Canada's strict gun control is ineffective.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)-The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said the weekend rampage in Nova Scotia provided more proof that strict gun control laws will not prevent determined individuals from committing mayhem.

Authorities now say at least 22 people were killed, as more victims have been discovered by investigators. Many were apparently killed in their own homes while obeying “stay home” mandates due to the COVID-19 outbreak. “We offer our sympathies to our Canadian neighbors, and especially to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for their loss,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “But we do not believe adding more restrictions on gun ownership for law-abiding Canadian citizens will to anything to prevent such tragedies in the future.

“For decades,” he continued, “we have been on the front lines in the battle to protect our Second Amendment. We’ve listened to repeated claims that the next new gun law is going to prevent violent crimes and make people safer. The only people made safer by restrictive gun laws are criminals and crazy persons who attack honest citizens, even in their own homes, and to whom ‘gun-free zone’ signs translate to a risk-free environment.” Gottlieb noted that the presumed Nova Scotia killer apparently fooled at least some of his victims by dressing as an RCMP constable and driving around in what apparently was a decommissioned patrol vehicle he had restored.

“Canada has very strict gun policies, but those regulations did not prevent the murder spree,” Gottlieb observed. “We find it appalling that many in the U.S. gun prohibition movement have argued in support of Canadian-type gun laws for this country. It is time for gun control extremists on both sides of the border to admit their strategies have consistently failed, and in some cases have even cost lives.”

“Instead of allowing anti-gunners to exploit this tragedy,” he said, “let’s learn from it. The very first lesson may be hard for some to accept, but it is this: Extremist gun control laws do not prevent unspeakable crimes and they perpetuate a false sense of security that often has tragic results. Adopting new restrictions will not change that dynamic and may even make things worse. We cannot allow what happened in Canada to influence our policies here. We must zealously protect our right to keep and bear arms.”

All because of one man. Wow….He was apparently the excuse they were waiting on. Their government is accusing all citizens there, with intentions and actions that did not even occur to them. Apparently the “Deciders” want to keep their narrative in place, in trying to convince the subjects there, that they are worthy of their jobs, by blaming all, instead of seeing the reality of the truth. How convenient..

22 Dead, Sad! As with far too many in America, I believe Canadians live in communities that they ‘believe’ are sane and safe. They mistakenly believe their government has secured their safety, by restricting the ability for the ‘criminal element’ of society, as well as the law-abiding, to acquire and possess firearms! Unfortunately, achieving Nirvana in this world is not possible. Evil exists and seeks those unprepared to defend themselves. I am armed 24/7! I know when ‘what looks like the police or law enforcement’ are at my door. Before I open that door, I have my weapon of choice… Read more »

Progressive tactics relative to mass shootings is to capitalize on fear to strip liberties and consolidate power. Their long term intent is a disarmed, fearful and dependent population of serfs who will do their bidding on demand. Kind of like under sequester for Wuhan 19.

Incase folks aren’t paying attention, more gun control has nothing to do with mass shootings. They use mass shooting as an excuse but it’s not the reason they want more gun control. They want more people control and if this crap going on now doesn’t prove that I don’t know what will will. The governors has more power then ever. Unconstitutional power, but they have it none the less. Now, what will happen to get it back? Our armed society may save us from some of it, but can you imagine if we weren’t armed? We will be losing more… Read more »

LOL! Well, maybe not so much. I recall one incident where a homeowner took his shotgun and blasted one of those drones out of the sky over his property. The shooter was arrested, however, because the drone’s video recording led the po po directly to him.

There should be a law telling all drone flyers, including those working for the police, that homeowners have the right to ‘privacy and self-defense’ against invading drones, at least without a valid search warrant!

Unfortunately Canada doesn’t have a 2nd amendment, nor a 1st………

They don’t deserve one. They never fought for their liberty. We did.

– Civil rights are inherent to every human. Denying anyone’s civil rights only provides support for those who would take yours. Both 1st and 2nd simply affirm natural (God given) human rights which need to remain absolute.

Thanks Mr. Gottlieb for reminding the gun grabbers that gun control does not stop evil!

It must be made more widely known that the gun grabbers are the evil.
