LETTER: Liberal gun ban ignores gangs, focuses on lawful owners

A reader says that the Trudeau government focuses on the rights of criminals, but steps on those of lawful gun owners.

The key question I have regarding the confiscation of legally owned guns from vetted legal gun owners is: how will this solve illegal guns being smuggled into Canada? How will this solve illegal guns being used by criminal gangs and known criminals in Canada?

Minister Blair won’t bring in laws to help law enforcement, such as a stop and frisk law, that would assist police in detaining gang members who conceal and carry illegal guns. Why won’t Minister Blair bring in these types of laws? Infringement on the gang members and criminals’ human rights.

The Trudeau government has no qualms infringing on the rights of legal gun owners though. Just look at how the laws are written and the acceptable infringement by the Trudeau Government on law-abiding gun owners for the police to without a warrant come to your house at any hour of the day to ensure your guns are safely secured and locked up.

Isn’t that a stop and frisk law on law abiding gun owners that Prime Minister Trudeau and Minister Blair are afraid to bring in and enforce on gangs and criminals?

LETTER: Trudeau gun grab just an election ploy

RE: Cities able to ban handguns under Liberal gun grab program

Trudeau’s gun control legislation has nothing to do with public safety, and everything to do with elections.

It gets him a lot of city votes

He will never take any firearms off the streets, because it would violate the ‘holy rights’ of our so-called indigenous people to continue to trade in all kinds of illegal products and substances, including guns and ammo.

Enforcing any and all of his gun laws would take firearms away from duck hunters and target shooters, while leaving armed criminal gangs free to fight their wars and trade their drugs in our city streets.

RE: Edmonton Elk CFL team – one of the possible new names for the franchise

As I said to a Aboriginal friend, the expression of monikers was a sign of respect.

IE: George Armstrong was called “Chief” as captain of the Leafs. It was a sign of respect, to be worn with pride. And the last time they won Stanley Cup.

Perhaps the (name should be The) Edmonton Pissants.

LETTER: Hey Alberta – quit your whining!

Alberta could lead the way, rather than whining and crying about how tough they have it.

RE: Rick Strankman – Turn off The taps


The rest of Canada does not owe Alberta anything.

It’s the world’s view oil is on its way out, not the rest of Canada.

Alberta does not just want North America to be self-sufficient – they want to be the “haves” again. In other words, extract and ship (overseas) as much oil as possible.

It’s time to transition to other forms of energy. Alberta could lead the way, rather than whining and crying about how tough they have it.
