    Canada out of guns!

    Saw this story and thought you might enjoy!!


    Gun shop owners say handgun sales in Edmonton are skyrocketing since Prime Minister Paul Martin's promise to ban them.


    The Liberal Leader made the promise a few weeks ago during a campaign stop in Toronto.

    FROM DEC. 8, 2005: Liberals vow to ban handguns
    Phil Harnois is a former police officer who now owns a gun shop. Since the Liberal announcement, he says handgun sales have increased dramatically.

    He says his distributors have virtually nothing left in their warehouses, something that is very unusual.

    "There's always some odd piece here or there depending on the time of year," he told CBC News.

    Harnois says the Liberal promise has pushed people to buy guns before the ban is imposed.

    The Liberals say the goal of the handgun ban is to make communities safer.

    Tell that to the gangs and crooks - they will find it most amusing as it eases their future plans.

    I have little doubt the blissninnies and sheep generally will, like in UK, Aus' etc all be thinking how a ban would make them so much safer - but that notion is fueled by head location being in a hard to reach warm dark location!

    Logic has no place.

    It's a shame since we have had all these examples of other countries doing these "total" bans and it never works. Can't these idiots read??
