“Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Castro, Pol Pot… All these monsters began by confiscating private arms, then literally soaking the earth with the blood of tens & tens of millions of their people. Ahh. The joys of gun control.”
Justin Trudeau will join the list of dictators who forbid citizens from self-protection. “It will be illegal to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns anywhere in Canada,” Trudeau said, using the tragedy in Texas as his platform. “Other than using firearms for sport shooting and hunting, there is no reason anyone in Canada should need guns in their everyday lives.”
The cowardly armed cops in Uvalde, Texas, sat idle as the children were massacred. They even tasered desperate parents who tried to enter the school. Any parent would have attempted to eliminate the threat given the opportunity. The heroic teachers protected the children as best as they could, being unarmed, as help from the government (i.e., the cops) never arrived. The government is not here to protect you or your children. Relinquishing guns is the first step toward becoming completely defenseless.
