Warning! Facts that contradict your opinion below.


Democrats advocated for stricter gun laws after Alexandria shooting


In the weeks after, conservative lawmakers called to loosen gun restrictions. Republicans introduced legislation to allow lawmakers to almost always carry a concealed weapon and to allow concealed carry permits obtained in other states to be recognized in the District of Columbia, the New York Times then reported.

Democrats opposed the measures. U.S. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the House’s nonvoting member from D.C., said it "is the last place you want to condone or allow concealed-carry weapons" and "they are certainly not going to be successful if I have anything to say about it." 


The Response to the Congressional Baseball Shooting


The day after the June 14, 2017, shooting, former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords — who was shot in the head in 2011 and advocates for gun control — wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for lawmakers to address gun violence.

“We know, as always, that no one law could prevent a shooting like this. But we also know that we must acknowledge a problem: an unacceptable rate of gun violence in this country,” she wrote. “And we must acknowledge that a deadly problem like this brings a responsibility to find solutions.”

Virginia’s then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe, also a Democrat, said during a press briefing the day of the shooting that “we need to do more to protect all of our citizens.”

“I have long advocated — and this is not what today is about — but there are too many guns on the street,” he said, according to the Richmond Times-DispatchA state gun rights group criticized McAuliffe for “[n]ever missing a chance to push his gun control agenda.”

Democrat Dannel Malloy, the governor of Connecticut at the time, called the shooting “a reason why we need, quite frankly, and I’ll say it, saner gun laws in America.”

ElDotardo is a blithering idiot. A troll. 

No chance he'll respond sensibly.

The problem with your response is that our fascist Democrats never STOP calling for gun control.

This is the kind of response they would love to mandate, if only it weren't for that fusty old Constitution which delineates and protects individual freedom . . .

 

PM Trudeau begins the process of disarming Canadians

 

Over 13 deadly hours on April 18 and 19, Gabriel Wortman disguised himself as a Canadian Mountie and went to sixteen different locations in and around Portapique, Canada, where he killed 22 people and injured three others. For the killings, Wortman used a handgun and long guns, all of which he obtained illegally.

On Friday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau punished all Canadians for Wortman’s act by reclassifying about 1,500 hitherto legal firearms as “prohibited.” By using reclassification, Trudeau was able to circumvent legislation.

According to the CBC, the ban is effective immediately, and blocks all licensed gun owners from selling, transporting, importing, or using their newly-banned weapons. There will be a two-year amnesty for unloading the guns through a “fair compensation” buy-back program (aka a confiscation program).

Trudeau is banning any semi-automatic that can hold a magazine, which would seem to include shotguns, for the CBC says that “there are 105,000 firearms currently classified as ‘restricted’ that will now be classified as ‘prohibited.’” The CBC includes a list of those guns that are primarily targeted:

  • M16, AR-10, AR-15 rifles and M4 carbine
  • Ruger Mini-14 rifle
  • US Rifle M14
  • Vz58 rifle and CZ858 rifle
  • Robinson Armament XCR rifle
  • CZ Scorpion EVO 3 carbine and pistol
  • Beretta Cx4 Storm carbine
  • SIG Sauer SIG MCX and SIG Sauer SIG MPX carbines and pistols
  • Swiss Arms Classic Green and Four Seasons series rifles

Trudeau isn’t stopping with long guns either. He wants to get rid of handguns too. Bill Blair, the Canadian Public Safety Minister “promised Friday to enact legislation down the line to give municipalities the power to ban these firearms [handguns].”

The ban isn’t only a blow to gun owners. It also strips the livelihood from gun dealers:

Banning weapons with “modern design” is an arbitrary and useless distinction, similar to banning Gore-Tex to make hikers wear wool jackets, said Alison de Groot, the managing director at the Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association.

Although businesses are still doing the math, de Groot said the government’s move will strand somewhere be
