That article is PRO GUN btw! 8)



And Canadians don'ty suck, our Liberals do... I'm sure there are planty of anti-gun people in the US as well...





FYI there have been gun ban talk for years! In fact the last ellection was critical for us; if Conservatives wouldn't have won I don't don't think I'd own my M&P right now (along with my other 4handguns)

Funny that. Canada has a Conservative government and the Americans are getting ready to elect even more Democrats.



We have one moron provincial premier who's a brain clone of your Illinois and Wisconsin governors---but he doesn't represent most of the country.



You know how so many Americans are fed up with the East Coast, California, Illinois--and how these places run the country?



Same thing here. Maybe Toronto and Montreal should form their own country--along with Boston, and New York. And let the rest of North America move along.

Good Article!!!

Actually that was a very good article coming down on the pro gun side. The one paragraph that stands out is;



Tragic failure

In general, disarming of citizens has been a tragic failure, accompanied by increasing rather than decreasing incidence of violence everywhere it's been implemented. It serves only to embolden the still-armed criminal who still has his illegal guns. Home invasions are a new phenomenon of the disarmed populace era.




Almost every Canadian I've ever met (admittedly, not many) have been pretty self reliant, industrious and tough people. I have no clue why they continue to elect liberals. But then, I have no clue why we do either? :?

When I was a little boy, I wanted to grow up to be like Sgt Preston and have a dog like his dog King. Now I find that the Mounties are marrying each other. What a disappointment!


Guess I'll just stay here in Texas where most things make sense, at least to me. :wink:

Actually, a minority of Canadians elect Liberals. The problem is that almost half of all Canadians live in Toronto, Montreal and the area.



And these characters elect enough Liberals to get either a majority or minority government.



And, most of these urbanites elect Liberals because they believe (falsely) that Liberals "do more for immigrants."



Hopefully, all this is changing.

My stepdad was from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and i've driven from Regina (capital of the province) to the bottom of the NW Territories, and then back down. It isn't a bad place. People are (stereotypically) nice great people, who live on the farm or in small cities (compared to what i'm used to...) and own guns. Guns guns guns.



The canadians i've had a pleasure of talking to, have the same idea I have... rifles and shotguns are for hunting and protection... every family has at least one, and criminals know this. However, what i've seen, there wasn't to many handguns... although, Saskatchewan is like Kansas in a way... one city surrounded by an entire state of farms.

That must have been one long boring drive.

I drove from Vancouver to Winnipeg and back once. Going east, there was nothing to see after Calgary, and heading back west, I couldn't wait to get to Calgary. I just wanted it to end. Its so flat you can watch your dog run away. I'm definitely not a midwest/prairies kind of guy.

Calgary is nice.



Flat and miles and miles and miles of canola fields at sub-par speeds. Honestly, I think their "highways" were 60 kph.... which is ~40 mph... that is insufficient imo.



eta: hit 5 vs 4... big difference, lol

Calgary just offered a break from the monotony and you can see the Rockies form there. Typically the Trans-Canada Hwy open road speed limit is anywhere from 90 kph to 110 kph depending on where you are.

Yea, I didn't have the pleasure of that... I thought I was going to die after the first few hours of canola @ that speed.
