Mother Jones is far, far away from an unbiased opinion.
Registered guns v. criminal firearms.
So far, I find two instances where law abiding people used full autos. Both policemen and it appears they used department weapons. They now fall into the criminal category. However, it has only been a cursory search.
You're putting the onus of the firearm, instead of the person on the bang button. That's what the liberals are doing right now.
Using what is termed as 'assault style rifles' is hyperbole. A scare tactic, used by politicians to elicit fear. There is no definition of an assault style rifle. They use characteristics to define what they think it should be. A firearm that can fire a massive amount of ammo, in a short period of time, in order to kill the most amount of people.
Ironically, besides our military, the only use of true assault weapons and full auto firearms are buy our cops, armed with C8 carbines and 30 round magazines. They try to cover the fact that they carry these, for use, by calling them Patrol Carbines. And whatever the close protection guys use to protect the politicians that are taking our firearms.
Federal Conservation Officers have been issued AR-10 platforms (.308) for use in the field. All of these firearms are prohibited to civilian gun owners.
We can't have them, because, remember, they are designed for only one purpose, they say, One Purpose. To kill as many people as possible in the least amount of time.
So why are our officers carrying them around. Who are these masses of people they are going to gun down in the least amount of time? With their full auto, 30 round magazine weapons?
I'm not besmirching LEOs, or their equipment. I know why they have them.
I'm pointing out the blatant hypocrisy, subterfuge and dishonesty of this whole red and orange liberal misuse of legislation and law, to deprive and disarm Canada and it's citizens.
