PTBC J-LogA conservative OPINION blog --with bite. OPINION by Joel Johannesen.
Monday, February 14, 2011
How could this be? My understanding was that we currently have the liberals’ gun licensing and registry (and “early learning!” —wink!) division in firm control of the situation. I must have read the news story about the shooting wrong.
I’ll re-read “Man charged with downtown Vancouver shooting”.
Nope. Got it right.
Well maybe he was an American. That would explain everything (it’s science!).
”...Hassan Omar Hassan, 32 ...”
Nope. Hassan Omar Hassan, 32, sounds like another typical Canadian, if I understand the liberal-left progressive multiculters correctly.
My understanding from liberals and members of the you’ve got to be kidding party and the police union and of course the Canadian Auto Workers Union, (which as it turns out are part owners of that party) explains every chance it gets that the “$2-milion” [sic] Canadian gun registry is checked, oh, “874,7693 times per day” [sic]. (And also, as a bonus, that “right-wingers” are “the cause” of the financial meltdown that resulted in this recession). Still, somehow, these shootings occur.
In this case, the assailant’s handgun, for which there has been a government registry since the early part of the last century in this country, was not registered. Not registered! That’s just simply too amazing for words. Not registered I repeat. The shooter? Not licensed. No really! Not freaking licensed. Possibly untrained as to the safety of using firearms! It’s true! What an amazing oversight on his part. But we’ve all had those days when we forget the most obvious things!
We know all that’s true because he’s “known to police” as a result of prior drug, property, and firearms trouble. Clearly, he was romping around town, free and not in jail, on the basis that he had to be “reintegrated into society,” or “rehabilitated,” as the progressives all put it, and help serve the public — in just this way.
So you’d think the crack reporters (not to be confused with the reporters on crack) working in the liberals’ media division, would question liberals about that. By way of example, in case any one of them are reading this (as if!), I suggest this as a possible entré into their questioning: “Honorable progressive, how could this happen?” Hint: Try to refrain from winking, or snickering together like little girls!
Then, await their answer. When they begin to speak gratuitously about the “hidden agenda” of the Conservatives, and how they’re “racists” and “homophobes” and “war criminals,” don’t print that bit (see, it has utterly nothing to do with anything). No don’t print it! I know —it’s counter-intuitive. I know, you’ll lose any chance at that Pulitzer. I know, that’s not what’s in your media handbook. Instead, report how they have no answer with regard to the failure of their own platform on the safety of Canadians. Finally, try to remember that non-answer next time they bring up gun control and gun registries and such, and report about their non-answer.
I’m sure this blog entry will help.
