Shoot 'em if You're Got Your Ruger Mini-14 Semi-automatic Rifle With You

The Reformers' scrapping of the gun registry was never about farmers.  Never.  When Stephen Harper drafted their policy back in the day, it was about creating what they called a "Canadian gun culture".  Tom Flanagan stated that Harper only stopped short of calling it the right to bear arms.

The above gun is one that you will no longer have to register.  It can pierce light armour from a distance of up to 1.5 kilometres, and is the same gun used in the 1989 Montreal Massacre, and by Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik.

How many "farmers" do you know who need that kind of fire power?  Or hunters?  How many ducks wear armour?

If you visit the websites of the many groups propping up the Harper government, they see the scrapping of the long-gun registry as only the first step.  According to the Canadian Taxpayers federation, inspired by American neocon Grover Norquist, and once headed up by Jason Kenney:
“The bill introduced today (Ending the Long-gun Registry Act) is long overdue,” said CTF Federal and Ontario Director Gregory Thomas. “Our supporters would have preferred that the government go further, and also eliminate licensing for non-restricted long-guns, but today’s legislation addresses the most wasteful and unnecessary parts of the program.”
Not only registration but licensing.

On the Canadian Gun Nutz message board, one client is asking  "Hey, are you folks thinking of having an end of registry sale? I am looking to get a mossberg 500 3 barrel combo, and a few other items, hopefully the registry death blow will happen this week,,, maybe a tax free sale or 10% off to celebrate?"

I'm sure they will.  Just what we need.  More guns in the hands of self-proclaimed "Gun Nutz".

Gun Nutz was one of two gun enthusiast groups who went after former Liberal MP Mark Holland, because he had been such a strong advocate for gun control.  Chris Alexander, the beneficiary of funds and free advertising, sent them a thank you note:
‘As this election kicks off, I want all of the supporters of our campaign against [Liberal Public Safety Critic] Mark Holland−and in favour of Bill C-391−to know how much their contributions have been appreciated. We have put them to good use−canvassing this riding from top to bottom over the past year. The support in the electorate here has been amazing.

Now we need to organize ourselves to bring this vote out (…)’"  from Ajax-Pickering Conservative Party candidate Chris Alexander on the “Canadian Gun Nutz” message board, March 26, 2011.
Alexander won and Canadians in favour of gun control lost an important voice in the House.  We'll just have to accept that the NRA is now writing our gun laws.

The Harperites won't be happy until they've destroyed every trace of our Canadian values.

  1. Not sure what you are talking about. The above gun is illegal in Canada, as shown in the image.

  2. More misinformation related to the registry when all semi auto weapons in Canada are restricted to 5 shot magazines and have been since 1991. The registry was in no way related to the purchase and licensing of any firearms for hunting or sports shooting and all the same background checks, storage and handling regulations that were in place before it are still there. Everyone also has to complete The Canadian Firearms Safety Course also to purchase any weapon and a Safe Hunting Course as well to purchase a hunting license. Hand Gun Registry which relates to crime guns has been in place in Canada since 1937.

  3. My heart wants to break, Emily. A weapon like that has no business in the hands of civilians. There is no need for any peaceful person to own one, so that just leaves those weapons in the hands of people with hidden agendas. I weep for my country.

  4. Its embarrassing to see Canadians exercising their 2nd amendment !!
    When the gun registry was being built in Miramichi in the 80s A few local hill billies were protesting . One had a confederate flag across the back window of his F130 half ton .I asked him what it was he told me "This is flag of freedom fer revolters" The same guy was a member of the C.O.R party opposing bilingualism in New Brunswick and just about everything else . I was disappointed knowing individuals thought like him .. Now Im embarrassed we have an entire government elected by Canadians like the freedumb loving COR member with the f130 and confederate flag ! mo guns n mo Jesus!! right here in Canada.

    Hidden agenda? I own two semi-automatics, both far more powerful then the Mini-14. Guess what my agenda is?

    Go to range, have fun, relax, share my heritage with my wife and kids.

    It's disgusting that such a trivial issue divides the Canadian populace.

  7. I want to destroy all of the Canadian left's "values"! Gun control, wealth redistribution, health care, welfare, taxation and big government, political correctness, self government, language laws, etc....

    I am a Canadian and I am sure guilty, yes I want to destroy all of that shit!

  8. Um I don't know if anyone is aware but a well trained individual can inflict just as much damage with minimal means then they could with this rifle. It doesn't matter which firearm you use, it's how well that nut job can plan it out and how well of a shot he/she is. Secondly if someone wanted to go on a shooting spree they probably wouldn't use a firearm that is registered anyway and it would probably have been obtained off the street for a much cheaper price. Lastly, has anyone ever heard of a shooting in Texas since Luby's massacre? No! why? because everyone in Texas owns a gun and if you are going to say "oh what about Luby's massacre?" Well let me tell you, that could have been brought to a halt early when one of the first victims "reached for her .38 revolver in her purse, only to realize she had left it in her vehicle."

  9. I am a 24 year old Electrical Engineering student, with a minor in physics. I had my first pilots license at 16 years old and my second and 17. I have over a years engineering experience coordinating construction on critical telecoms buildings, and designing controls for oil rigs and hydro plants. I have absolutely nothing on my criminal record. I volunteer in my spare time. I am a law abiding citizen, and I own a firearm.

    If your going to write an article at least make sure you get your facts right. Every single big game hunting rifle, is capable of "piercing armor at 1.5km", every single last one of them. Can anyone actually hit something at 1.5 km? Well no.

    The mini-14 is a 5.56 or .223 cal rifle, it is not considered a large enough caliber for big game, in other words I can't hunt a deer with that. In fact it is a rifle considered just large enough to kill foxes, and coyotes. Yes, the pictured rifle looks scary, but is is far less lethal than a deer hunting rifle, and is used for things as small as rabbits up to small dogs, in the real world.

    As for semi-auto? Yes it will shoot up to 5 bullets in quick succession, which makes for a more humane hunt, if you are after small fast moving animals, and you graze one, the best thing to do would be to finish the animal in a quick clean fashion. Fact: a magazine for a center fire rifle that holds more than 5 rounds is a PROHIBITED device, akin to hand grenades, bombs, and machine guns. There are no legal semi-auto guns in Canada that can shoot more than 5 rounds, with out reloading. Again I can't stress this enough, the pictured rifle, is far less capable than a semi auto big game rifle.
    Let's have that one more time, the pictured rifle, is far less dangerous than your average hunting rifle. End of story.
    Please see the RCMP website and have a look at the myriad of regulations that law abiding gun owners already follow. You can't have a rational debate unless you understand both sides of the argument, do you, the writer, know the current regulations in place? Everything you wrote above unequivocally demonstrates that you do not.

    There are millions of Canadians just like me, our firearms will %100 never be used in a violent crime. We are not the problem, if you took our firearms away, you would be no more safer.
