What we can learn from Canada is how to legislate common sense without violating anyone’s liberty—unless you imagine that anyone’s liberty depends on having as many weapons as he wants whenever he wants them.

Well, Duh!

And this is from somebody living in the People’s Republic of Bloombergsia (Formerly known as NYC) where a maniac tells people what to eat, drink and behave. I am guessing he is missing the incoming bulldozer for the tree.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. NYC……where off duty Police and Correctional Officers watch while people get pulled out of vehicles to get cut & beat by motorcycle thrash….no need of a means to protect one`s self or family….. 🙁

  2. What you can learn from Canada is how to create a borderline-Socialist borderline-Utopia which is dependent on the Capitalist world economic superpower to the south.

    Canadians are friendly and generally great people, but their nation could not exist without the United States.

  3. “No one disputes that there are sane reasons for ordinary people to need a rifle. But there is no imaginable, meaningful sense in which Canadians, or Australians, are “less free” when it comes to guns because they have to take a safety course before they use one.”

    Yes, they are less free. Having to jump through countless, capricious, onerous, and burdensome hoops before exercising a right makes someone less free. That is precisely why poll taxes and literacy tests were banned as prerequisites for voting, even though having an informed and knowledgeable electorate would be beneficial for the long term stability of the country.
