A Japanese man started stabbing people in the middle of Akihabara, the electronics district in Japan. Should knives be taken away from everyone because one person went off his rocker?

A few muslims killed alot of people by running a plane into a building. Should we ban muslims from flying because a few of them hijacked a plane?

No offense, but one person did it, so lets take it away from everyone is a very slippery(slippy) slope. Benjamin Franklin said one who gives up liberty for security deserves neither.

Your argument is fine but it doesnt apply here because they did not take all our guns from us... they changed the rules as to who has access to them and keep a register of them. I just mentioned the reason that started all the reforms, it was a politcal point that the majority of australians wanted reform after they saw this incident. They got it. gotta love democracy ay?

Re: URGENT! Canadians Firearm owners need your help!

has anybody ever thought about how easy it is for a half butted machinist to build a gun? keeping guns from those who are banned from owning them, but really want them is not a reality. very crude guns can kill people.
democracy is a wonderful thing. were not as willing to give up that rite as others are.
its better to toast the liberal minded legislators who think its a good idea.

Re: URGENT! Canadians Firearm owners need your help!

the restigery is next to worthless for reducing crime. criminals dont use restigered guns! Here in canada if they got rid of the long gun restigery, handguns would still be restigered (well legal handguns), just as they were before the long gun restigery came along. And u still couldnt buy a gun or ammo without a firearms licence. they do a back round check on everybody who gets a firearms licence so the restigering of long guns is a useless waste of money.

You have got that totally wrong when you said the Majority of Australians wanted reform after they saw the incident......The Prime Minister did his little dictator bit and turned on the law abiding gun owners of Australia,
nobody was asked...They were told.
The compulsory firearm registration has done nothing to halt the illegal use of firearms in Australia.
Every night in Sydney there is a drive by shooting...do you think any of the firearms used in these shootings are registered?

Also I would like to add to this that if you do not renew your gun reg, unlike your car they come and take your guns away, charge you with a felony, and put you in jail for up to 3 years. Also if you are involved in any sort of altercation the police automaticaly remove firearms from your premises even if you are not at fault and were defending yourself. The police will use any excuse possible and even make some up and lay phoney charges to disarm you.

Re: URGENT! Canadians Firearm owners need your help!

As an update, on Tuesday a bill was introduced to kill the long gun registry as well as a promise to destroy the records that have been accumulated since this waste of time and money was implemented. As we have a majority government right now this should be the end of it................... finnaly
