Canada's Safe Storage Laws

Up here in Canada if ya wanna own a gun ya gotta write a test to keep otherwise unemployable cod gobbling Newfies at the Canadian Firearms Center employed to prove you are smart and safe enough to be trusted with one. I did it over a decade ago and passed it easily; it was intended more as a rights grab than a cash grab - but Canadians pretty much told the liberal fart suckers where to go and how to get there on that one.

One of the big deals about the course is safe storage of firearms and I can see that - ya don't want curious kids getting into guns and ammo unless they are in the right setting for it. But one of the most lame justifications for safe storage was one that only your typical clot headed liberal idiot could come up with:

The idea is that ya lock the gun up in a cabinet, and lock the ammo up somewhere else. (I don't do it, nor does any gun owner I know). The reason ya do that, according to our liberal firearms experts - is that if ya decide to commit suicide or maybe knock off a liquor store - undoing all the locks will slow you down and give you a chance to think things through and maybe think better of it!!! HAR HAR HAR!!! I'm serious. Yeah, that's why our gun laws are largely ignored by most Canadian sportsmen. Safe storage my ass. Lock 'em up when the little ones are around or you're storing them for an extended period and in the real world, you're fine. When I was a kid there was a gun rack in pretty much every home and we knew we would get flogged if we played with our father's guns.

But then I see stuff like this...

Maybe we SHOULD lock up our flame throwers as well.
Big kids can't be trusted either...


  1. Absolutely, beyond the shadow of any doubt, the best place to keep your firearms is in a gun safe, preferably in the basement or garage. That way, when someone tries to break into your home, all you have to do is get to garage in the dark without breaking your toes, remember the combination to the safe, run the combo correctly in the dark in panic mode, and retrieve your weapon of choice. Oh, and by the way, the ammunition is locked up too, but in a different location.

    My dear old dad actually kept his pistol, a revolver, unloaded in the top drawer of his dresser. Shortly after he and Mom moved in to their new home, the power went out and dad thought someone was trying to break in. So there's the old man, fumbling around, spilling bullets all over the floor and trying his best to get the revolver loaded. There wasn't anyone trying to break in after all - I'm thinking raccoons and a timely power outage - but after that experience he kept it loaded. Even thinking about picking it up was strictly forbidden.

    But that's how things were back then. Your parents took time to teach you things, and even the bad kids that I knew growing up didn't do anything too awful bad.

  2. I agree for the most part, WL.

    But up here in Canada things are much different than the USA. Our crime rate is much lower than that of the US. Stupid people will attribute that to liberal values lack of guns etc, but after 30 years of studying this discrepancy, my view is that it is accounted for by the number of blacks in our countries. America has much more blacks than Canada has and they skew the crime stats accordingly because they are more violent and less intelligent as a group.

    In fact, when blacks pour into Canada and settle into their slums and enclaves - crime goes right through the roof in those districts. The media is careful not to notice it, but the truth of it is what it is. If you eliminate black crime America's rate drops like a stone and falls in line with other countries.

    That's just my view, but whadda I know?
