Clouseau Trudeau recently decided to implement a sweeping ban on handgun sales,
promising to make it impossible “to buy,
sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada.” He also decried “American-style” views on gun ownership and
proclaimed that Canadians have no right whatsoever to use guns to defend
Toolow Trudeau, in an even more recent
appearance on “Pod Save the World,” stated: “And…there are debates, and we have a culture where the difference
is…guns can be used for hunting or for sport
shooting in Canada – and there are lots of gun owners, and they’re mostly
law-respecting and law-abiding – but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. That’s not a right that you have in the Constitution or anywhere else. If you try and buy a gun and say it’s for
self-protection – No, you don’t get that. You can get
it for hunting, you can get it for sport shooting, you can take it to the
range…uhh, no problem as long as you go through our rigorous background checks.
But, there’s a difference around the culture, and one of the things we’re
seeing with the debate in the States is…you get more and more of the American
style…you know, right to carry, self defense arguments filtering up,
through…through the, uh, usual more right-wing communications channels.”
It is nonsensical and preposterous in the extreme to say that a person has a right to shoot rabbits or clay targets but not to employ a firearm to save his or her own life.
In fact, the right to defend oneself, i.e. the right to life, is an inherent, natural right granted to us by our Creator. It is not a right that can be given to us—or taken away—by any human being or group thereof. That is an “American-style” view.
Much like “Let’s Go Brandon.”
Or “Trudeau Must Go.”
