Dealing with Gun Crime

I really don't get the opposition to our position on guns, when the Opposition keeps on saying they want guns banned... if you're EVER caught carrying a gun, you go away for a good long while.

What's to oppose with that? They say there's no reason to have a gun... we say there's no reason to be carrying a gun, EVER.

Simple, right? At least I thought so.

    I can think of lots of reasons to be carrying a 'gun'. The armed forces, police, border guards, forest rangers, brinks guards. Even putting those aside farmers, ranchers, trappers and other individuals who live on the land or close to nature need varmit control and protection from dangerous animals. Then of course there is the legal and needed hunt to help control the population of game animals thus helping to prevent starvation and disease amongst the flocks and herds. Finally there are those who enjoy target and trap shooting who need to carry their 'guns' from safe storage to place of usage. Carrying a 'gun' during the comission of a crime is something entirely different and for that there is no reason to excuse the person for using a weapon in such a manner.

    No matter what laws we put in place the criminals will always have guns.

    As an example, a 13 year old in Surrey, BC was just arrested after he was caught carrying a 9mm handgun and had stored two AK-47s at his home.

    HELLO! Automatic weaponry has been illegal for a long time in Canada and a 13 years can't even apply to own a handgun.

    I'm very liberal (though I've never voted Liberal) but I'm against this idea. I think more people need to carry guns to help prevent crime.
