Trudeau Wants a ‘National Freeze on Handgun Ownership’

Trudeau Wants a ‘National Freeze on Handgun Ownership’

I cannot speak in my usual Yankee way so I’ll go Southern lady: Bless your heart, Trudeau.

The same man who wore blackface a few times and froze bank accounts and wanted to invoke the Emergencies Act because he hated your politics now wants your guns.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just gave Canadians a double middle finger. This is fascism. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you fascism.

The dude is a holier-than-thou disgusting fascist pig who doesn’t give a crap about anyone but himself. This guy probably has never held a gun.

Trudeau wants to freeze handgun ownership. He also wants a buy-back program for assault rifles. Um, assault rifles don’t exist so…that point is moot.

This man’s life is protected by guns 24/7.

This guy doesn’t go anywhere without his armed security. That armed security carries handguns and those scary assaulty weapons! I bet his family and residence have those same armed security officers.

When someone tells you this then you know you need that gun: “We recognize that the vast majority of gun owners use them safely and in accordance with the law, but other than using firearms for sport shooting and hunting, there is no reason anyone in Canada should need guns in their everyday lives.”

Again, says the man who is protected by guns 24/7.

Thank GOD we have our Constitution. The left might live on Fantasy Island but the majority of Americans constantly ignored give a damn about our natural rights spelled out in the Bill of Rights.

I don’t know if the legislation will go through the Canadian government. Trudeau is just screaming for attention. He revoked the emergencies act after the Senate showed signs of disapproval.

The press conference is just as virtu signaling as the stupid legislation. Everyone wearing a mask and social distancing. I bet they’re all off to their lavish party to celebrate stripping Canadians of their natural rights while men with guns protect them.

How about a freeze on government overreach and a draw-down in current overreach?

    fscarn in reply to UnCivilServant. | May 31, 2022 at 8:04 am

    The left never sleeps. They will never, ever leave us alone.

    “It is the common fate of the indolent [*] to see their rights become a prey to the active [**]. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude [***] is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.” John Philpot Curran (1750- 1817).

    In other words, you better fight-&-defend or all those hard-earned freedoms will be taken without a moment’s notice. And as recent evidence, look at how governors and their staffs acted during the COVID-19 lockdown.

    * The indolent – those who may complain but yet won’t take action even when informed that forming your own citizen-led chapter of the John Birch Society (type “jbsagenda”) can counter the left

    ** The active – experience has taught that the left has a never-ending list of stupid, freedom-depriving ideas; the left will NEVER leave us alone. Green New Deal; elimination of 1st Am., 2d Am., mail-in voting, shut-down orders, and on and on

    *** Servitude – comes in a variety of forms, from detention (jail, stay-at-home orders) to economic deprivation via regulations (which always result in bigger government, higher prices for goods/services and greater unemployment) to increased taxation

    Starting your own John Birch Society chapter (even in Canada) is an effective “doing something,” to striking back at the left. Such is organized resistance. It is a means of giving order to individual frustrations.

    When we combine our forces into organized resistance to the left and a corrupted state we become more effective, creating our own unified sphere of influence following a coordinated agenda.

      WasTaiwanese=NowFullAmerican in reply to fscarn. | May 31, 2022 at 8:20 am

      This commentator makes a good point. Being a Keyboard Cowboy gets us nowhere. We too have to be active to counter the left.

      I’ll look into this Birch Society.

      Whitewall in reply to fscarn. | May 31, 2022 at 8:21 am

      Very true. The Left forms in order to destroy. Leftism is almost like a genetic defect in Western Civ and certainly with the post Enlightenment world. The left is always organizing and agitating because it knows nothing else. It can not operate anything for the common good because that would also need to be opposed and destroyed. If a leftist is not angry and agitating about something daily, then he may no longer be a leftist in good standing. So he makes up for his doubt by being more extreme to shore up his bona fides.

      The left must be opposed and beaten at all times because freedom is not free.

      Not so long ago I saw a Birch video called Overview of America. It was pretty good explaining the lay of the land,

      1. Most of the postwar conservative movement denounced and rejected the John Birch Society as a “right wing extremist” movement that did NOT deal in facts or reality. That group includes the most influential conservative intellectual of the 20th century (Russell Kirk) along with the former Director of the FBI (J. Edgar Hoover).

      2. Every senior official of the JBS (including Robert Welch) effusively praised J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI under his direction. For example, see Robert Welch comment on page 11 of the July 1961 JBS Bulletin:
      “But we have been equally emphatic at all times in expressing our confidence in J. Edgar Hoover and in the FBI under his direction.”

      Also see October 1966 article in JBS magazine entitled “The Wisdom and Warning of J. Edgar Hoover”.

      3. Given this effusive praise of Hoover and the FBI by Welch and by all other senior JBS officials, it is significant to report that the FBI falsified EVERY major predicate of JBS ideology. As merely one example: The JBS position re: our civil rights movement was stated by Robert Welch in the July 1965 JBS Bulletin: “Our task must be simply to make clear that the movement known as ‘civil rights’ is Communist-plotted, Communist-controlled, and in fact…serves only Communist purposes.”

      However, the FBI and the House Committee On Un-American Activities and the California Senate Factfinding Subcommittee on Un-American Activities all agreed that Welch’s evaluation was FALSE.

      As merely one example, there is J. Edgar Hoover’s 1964 speech entitled “Our Heritage of Greatness” quoted below:

      “Let me emphasize that the American civil rights movement is not, and has never been dominated by the communists–because the overwhelming majority of civil rights leaders in this country, both Negro and white, have recognized and rejected communism as a menace to the freedoms of all.” [J. Edgar Hoover speech, 12/12/64, Our Heritage of Greatness, page 7 – speech before Pennsylvania Society and the Society of Pennsylvania Women; bold emphasis on “not” and “never” in original document].

      For other examples of how our security agencies falsified the JBS position see:
      https://archive.org/details

      4. Unfortunately, the JBS has a very long history of aligning itself with racial and religious bigots and even hiring them as paid speakers and writers or recommending and selling their publications. Some examples appear below:

      (a) REV. FERRELL GRISWOLD (JBS member and paid speaker by JBS Speakers Bureau
      When the FBI interviewed Griswold, he told them that he was a JBS member and he stated that he also spoke at KKK events because he considered the KKK to be a “patriotic and conservative” organization. However, since 1947 the KKK was listed as subversive on the U.S. Attorney General’s List and in 1951 the House Committee on Un-American Activities also listed it as subversive!

      (b) NESTA WEBSTER (UK conspiracy author)
      The JBS recommended and sold several of her publications. In 1926, Ms. Webster gave a speech entitled “The Need For Fascism in Great Britain” and she was also an official of the UK’s first fascist organization. Her books included chapter titles like “The Jewish Cabalists” and “The Real Jewish Peril.” For details see:
      https://archive.org/details/webster-nesta-the-need-for-fascism-in-great-britain-1926-12pp

      (c) S.E.D. Brown (South African Observer)
      Robert Welch and the JBS recommended racist authors and publications in other countries – such as S.E.D. Brown. Brown was a notorious anti-semitic, ultra-conservative, and pro-apartheid publisher of The South African Observer (SAO) which promoted “scientific racism” articles by people like University of North Carolina Professor Wesley Critz George. Professor George wrote articles on the genetics of race and he was an ally of Alabama segregationist Governor George C. Wallace. Brown’s views were so extreme that they were repudiated in 1967 by South African Prime Minister John Vorster. During World War II, Vorster was interned for his pro-Nazi and anti-government activities.

      (d) AMERICAN FLAG COMMITTEE
      In June 1965 Robert Welch cited as a reliable source of information, “the long and prophetically accurate December 1956 Special Report of the American Flag Committee.” BUT in July 1965 J. Edgar Hoover sent a memo to the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia field office which described the American Flag Committee as follows: “The AFC is an anti-Semitic hate group.” [FBI-HQ file 105-11214, serial #77, 7/29/55].

      (e) ERIC DUDLEY BUTLER (Australian League of Rights)
      Another bigot hired by the JBS was Australian Eric Dudley Butler who became the Far East Correspondent for the JBS magazine (American Opinion). He also became a paid speaker under the auspices of the JBS Speakers Bureau. In the September 12, 1958 issue of his publication New Times, Butler wrote:
      “What is meant by the word gentleman does not exist among Jews. The genuine Jew fails in this innate good breeding…” and in 1960 Butler declared that “the constant repetition of the statement that the Germans murdered six million Jews is without doubt one of the most frightening examples of the successful use of the big lie technique…to exaggerate the number of Jews murdered in order to make it easier for the Political Zionists to try and justify their own murderous and totalitarian policies.”

      These are all just a few of HUNDREDS of examples showing how the JBS associated itself with racial and religious bigots and their arguments.

      Even worse, Robert Welch elevated life-long white supremacists to the JBS National Council. In 1956, Welch left the GOP to campaign and vote for the Presidential candidate of the States Rights Party, i.e. T. Coleman Andrews Sr. who later became a JBS National Council member. The official motto of that Party in 1956 was “Segregation Forever!”. Then, in 1976, Welch again voted for another life-long white supremacist (Tom Anderson, American Party).

      I do not dispute the contention that many people who joined the JBS were entirely honorable and principled conservatives. However, it is also true that many of those folks later resigned from the JBS because they recognized that the JBS was NOT effective and/or because they did not wish to be associated with bigotry emanating from the JBS. That group includes the former Research Director of the JBS (Tom Eddlem) who resigned in December 2019 when HE accused the JBS of publishing “nazi racial propaganda” in its magazine. You may see Eddlem’s resignation letter here:

      http://teddlem.blogspot.com/2019/12/resignation-letter-to-john-birch-society.html

      Even Mrs. Robert Welch criticized the new leadership of the JBS after her husband died. Many former major financial contributors to the JBS (including National Council members) resigned in disgust. For example: see Slobodan Draskovich’s lengthy resignation letter here: https://archive.org/details

      Revilo Oliver also wrote a bitter explanation re: his resignation from the JBS in a letter to Joseph P. Kamp which you may see here: https://archive.org/details

      Other prominent Birchers who resigned in disgust include: Gary Allen, Alan Stang, Don Fotheringham, Dr. Charles Provan, and numerous others. Gary Allen’s caustic letters attacking the JBS leadership may be seen here: https://archive.org/details

      IN SUMMARY:
      The JBS cannot legitimately claim that all criticism of the JBS comes exclusively or even primarily from the MSM or from people whose political views are totally different from the JBS. There are genuine factual reasons why the JBS has lost so much support over the decades.

      ernie1241 in reply to fscarn. | June 10, 2022 at 11:39 am

      Has nothing to do with “the left”.

      Do research into earliest legal cases about 2nd amendment issues. You will notice Courts rejected the notion that NON-military weapons had any claim to constitutional protection. The right to keep & bear arms only referred to military-style weapons needed for militia service AND no state constitution during our founding era, asserted a right to keep arms. Nor did the Second Amendment declare the right to keep arms apart from the obligation to bear them as part of the militia.

      When conservative Justice Scalia wrote his famous Heller decision, he pointed out that:

      “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons. Pp. 54–56.”

      J. Edgar Hoover statement in September 1967 FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin:
      “I have publicly stated my view for many years that better control of firearms is not only desirable, but also necessary to public welfare…I think mail-order firearm purchases should be banned, interstate transportation of firearms controlled, and local registration of weapons required and enforced. The primary thrust against this serious problem must be from the local level, but Federal assistance must strongly complement State gun legislation…There is no doubt in my mind that the easy accessibility of firearms is responsible for many killings, both impulse and premeditated. The statistics are grim and realistic. Strong measures must be taken, and promptly, to protect the public.”

    Peabody in reply to UnCivilServant. | May 31, 2022 at 11:46 am

    In Canada, the government does not switch parties every few years like we do in the U.S. The political party that Justin Trudeau belongs to has been in control of the country for most of the past 70 years and is not likely to be voted out any time soon.

“The dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe.” Okay, Ottawa.

Blaise MacLean | May 31, 2022 at 7:36 am

I have a question regarding the gun buy-back: how do you “buy back” something you never sold in the first place? It’s not “buy-back”…at best it’s expropriation and at worst confiscation.

Bonus question: who sets the price for guns being “bought back”?

    And where do those guns end up?

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to lc. | May 31, 2022 at 8:58 am

      If it is a good-quality firearm, or a collector item, it ends up in the gun collection of senior LEO personnel.

      If they are just common everyday firearms, they will end up in a local armory and used against the very people from which they were taken.

casualobserver | May 31, 2022 at 7:49 am

If the crazy treatment of the truckers protesting the excessive pandemic restrictions wasn’t enough the raise anger in enough Canadians, this won’t do it either. It’s almost as if just enough of the citizens are in the “please, sir, may I have another” camp.

Even though Canada has pretty high per capita gun ownership, I’m pretty sure a lot of the people in the upper provinces and outside of urban areas drive that number up significantly. The 3 major urban areas dominate in population, so this just may pass.

Truck Fudeau.

Plain spoken Mary… Love it..

Found this in the twitterverse… (true Duh with a strategic facial hair added)

Canada and the US have a large overlap of cultural and historical markers. There are any number of similarities but the Nations are not an exact match. Unfortunately the d/prog seem to view Canada as the template.

They would love to replace our system of government with a parliamentary system that drowns out the views of any minority party and amplifies the power of the ruling party or coalition. Expect a good deal more howling from the left about Canada and complaints that ‘if Canada can do it why can’t we’.

Okay, Canadians, time to lose your guns in boating accidents.

    alaskabob in reply to Othniel. | May 31, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    There will be no legal ownership of handguns within one generation. Since most Canadians approved of the crushing of the Truckers, this will be embraced also.

The true face of fascism.

Whatever these Fourth Reichers have planned, they are getting ready to do it soon. Time is running out.

I seem to recall that Canada once had a long gun registry but they ended it because almost no one actually registered their guns.

Trudeau is certainly evil but I’m not so sure the Canadian people are ready to knuckle under quite yet.

    gonzotx in reply to irv. | May 31, 2022 at 9:48 am

    You would be wrong

    Look at what they did to the Truckers

    alaskabob in reply to irv. | May 31, 2022 at 11:25 am

    They did register but it was ineffective and cost A huge amount of money but was never abandoned. It exists.

    In the US, BATFE is forbidden to create A database of 4473 forms ….but they are doing it right now. Lawlessness doesn’t stop when it is government doing it. The “of, by and for” that Lincoln spoke about is no longer The People….just the Bureaucracy..

      henrybowman in reply to alaskabob. | May 31, 2022 at 5:00 pm

      No, it definitely was scrapped.
      And after it cost 1,000 times what they promised it would cost.
      It was never successful at solving a single actual crime – except for the brand new crime of “failure to register,“ an entirely artificial “crime“ existing ONLY because… the government had created a registry!

    Free State Paul in reply to irv. | May 31, 2022 at 11:37 am

    IIRC, you are correct, Irv.

    The “they’re going to take away your guns” boogie man is just that. A boogie man.

    Do the math: There are 15+ million ARs in private hands in the US. Assume the average AR owner owns 3. That’s 5 million people. Assume 90% hand in their rifles when asked. That’s 500,000 resistors. Assume 1% is willing to shoot it out when there’s a knock on the door. That’s 5,000 firefights, or 3/day over 5 years. But the authorities won’t know who’s the 1 out of 100 crazy enough to fight back. So that’s 500,000 raids that must be conducted by teams of 8-10 heavily armed SWAT cops. Tens of millions of man-hours by expensively trained professionals, many of whom will look for another line of work when they see some of their comrades not coming home after a raid.

      henrybowman in reply to Free State Paul. | May 31, 2022 at 5:01 pm

      And if they won’t rush in after one 18-year-old-kid actively killing fourth-graders, imagine how they’re going to feel about taking on you and your family.

        mbecker908 in reply to henrybowman. | May 31, 2022 at 8:27 pm

        How will the same cops who stood around while those kids were murdered?

        They will put two armed officers on each window and door and they will explosively breech your door at 3am and 6 SWAT cops will take you down.

        No knock warrant. If you make a quick move you are dead. If your wife moves, she’s dead. If your kids move, they’re dead. You dog? Dead whether it moves or not.

          henrybowman in reply to mbecker908. | June 1, 2022 at 11:04 pm

          No doubt we will die. But if we take just one of them with us, we improve the balance. There are millions of us, and they can’t afford to lose one officer per raid. Add to that that I’m pretty much on borrowed time already. “Freedom isn’t free,” that’s what it means. I never served in the military, so perhaps this is my personal risk to serve America. Nothing sneaks up on my dogs, and I’m up all damn night.

        rebelgirl in reply to henrybowman. | June 1, 2022 at 9:44 am

        They’ll be fine with it…

Um, assault rifles don’t exist

Sure they do. An assault rifle is an actual thing; and the AR-15 isn’t one.

It’s “assault weapon” that’s a vague term invented in the 1990s, and essentially means anything the gun-grabbers decide not to like this week. Especially if it has a shoulder thing that goes up, or basic safety features like barrel shrouds.

    CommoChief in reply to Milhouse. | May 31, 2022 at 9:57 am

    Or a bayonet lug because we need to reduce the number of bayonet attacks…..

    alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | May 31, 2022 at 11:18 am

    Josh Sugarman of Handgun Control wrote that the confusion of what was an assault rifle could be used to ban the civilian rifles…They needed a new tactic for overall gun banning and they jumped to deception to continue their cause. True…all of the “features” used for the first ban were mostly cosmetic. They just looked at pictures and fashioned the language. Bayonet lugs, shrouds, handgrips…even if the magazine was behind or in front of the trigger. The magazine feed auto-loading rifle was first a civilian design while the military designed bolt action was the norm. One reason…auto-loaders “wasted” ammunition. Same reason lever action rifles were not officially sanctioned in the Civil War. Only after WWI was the auto-loader researched as a main infantry rifle.

    All types of firearm actions have been used as a “weapon of war”…..period. Semiautomatic now, and later ” sniper rifles” .. Borrowing from their own language…firearm ownership will be safe, legal and rare.

How do you “buyback” something that you never owned in the first place?

    It’s like redeeming green stamps.

    Ima_Uzer in reply to Romey. | May 31, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    With these programs, I always wonder if the “buy back” is going to be the value of the gun at the time of purchase, or if the owner is going to get lowballed.

In the long run it isn’t a freeze, it’s a total ban. Eventually every gun owner will die, and the ban on transfer will make it illegal for their heirs to possess the firearm. It will have to be turned in for destruction without compensation, and in one generation Canadians will be defenseless.

    I’m kidding, of course.

I’d put money on it that Trudeau can’t coherently define “assault weapon”.

Some of our Canadian friends hopefully will weigh in as itsany years since i learned about Canada’s legislative workings. He cant ban anything but has instituted legislation so the Parliament could refuse to go along, right?

    Milhouse in reply to diver64. | May 31, 2022 at 4:36 pm

    He will introduce legislation, which Parliament could refuse to pass, but it won’t. The Grits and NDP between them have a solid majority, and they both enthusiastically support this legislation, so they’ll pass it.

    In Parliamentary systems it’s very rare for Parliament not to pass the government’s proposed legislation, simply because for them to be the government they need the House’s approval. Imagine if the House of Representatives here could oust the president whenever it liked, and replace him with someone it liked. By definition whoever it installed would be likely to support its chosen president’s legislative agenda, because if it didn’t it wouldn’t have installed him in the first place.

“Thank GOD we have our Constitution.”
Why? All Biden has to say is that it’s “not absolute.” And presto… we don’t.

    ernie1241 in reply to henrybowman. | June 10, 2022 at 11:46 am

    Mr. Bowman: No “right” is absolute. We have freedom of speech but then we also have libel and slander laws along with laws concerning pornography or lewdness broadcast on TV or radio.

    We have freedom of religion but there are also laws which restrict government from giving preference to just one religious group and other laws which nullify parental rights if their religious beliefs endanger the health or safety of their children.

    We have second amendment rights, but as conservative Justice Scalia wrote in his famous Heller decision

    “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.
