There are those who think we can do without the Second Amendment. After all, a repeal has been proposed. It’s not a reasonable proposal, but it’s an example of serious people wanting to repeal our right to keep and bear arms.
Many of those who propose this argument say that we would still have guns, but that the government would impose limits supposedly for the betterment of society.
Of course, that’s a pile of male bovine excrement, but that’s their thinking.
In Canada, citizens don’t have those protections. That’s why a handgun ban is looking like a real possibility.
The Canadian Coalition for Gun Control said in a November fundraising letter that it got politicians to toughen a planned law against hunters and sport shooters, and that the government’s possible handgun ban is “within our reach.”
The letter outlined plans to further attack the rights of federally licensed shooters by demanding the seizure of their handguns and certain other firearms, and by pushing for more privacy intrusions by police. The document sought penalties and punishments only for honest men and women, not lawbreakers.
