Picking on Canada

I shouldn’t pick on Canada so much; the problem is that those Soviet Canuckistanis make it so damn easy, when they do stuff like this.

Ontario Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday that he does not want to see the provinces’ schools resort to installing metal detectors and having uniformed security officers patrol the halls in the wake of Tuesday’s fatal stabbing at a Toronto high school.

Such a move, he said, would amount to the Americanization of schools in Ontario.

“I see that as an absolute last resort,” Mr. McGuinty told reporters during an election campaign stop.

Instead, he said, Ontario needs to distinguish itself from the United States by imposing an outright ban on hand guns.

“Let’s ban handguns in Ontario,” he said. “Let’s ban handguns across the country. Let’s declare war against handguns.”

A 16-year-old Scarborough youth was stabbed to death on Tuesday on a walkway leading from Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute.

Here’s what kills me.  Putting in metal detectors and adding security staff would actually help with a violence problem.  You’d be able to screen children for weapons, and then have actual staff to enforce the rules.

Gun Control: It’s what you do when you don’t want to do anything.  An outright ban on handguns would do absolutely nothing to prevent young miscreants from packing heat.

I really have come to the conclusion that when it comes to American gun control, we ignore the developments in Canada at our own peril.

  1. I think there was a school shooting where the gunman just shot the person working the metal detector.

    Of course, there’s “crazy crime” and “regular crime” (a.k.a. gang crime). Crazy criminals try to kill everybody, regular criminal just kill the individuals they have vendettas with. The metal detector could help with that.

    (Then they will start smuggling in ceramic knives — metal detectors won’t work on that!)

  2. Stop calling Ontario Canada. The real Canada consists of 8 provinces and 3 territories. None of them are named Ontario or Quebec.

  3. Damn, I thought some of my firearms were pretty ‘sharp’, but I never considered stabbing anybody with one.

    Could somebody in Canada put this jackass in straitjacket or paddock? He sure as Hell shouldn’t be allowed out without being on a rope.

    I have known many Canadians, and I have liked almost all of them, with the exception of French Canadians, and I only knew one of them that was an actual real person, but since they believe they are French and not Canadian, I suppose I can still say I like almost all Canadians I have known. They deserve better than they are getting. They may have to fight for it. Being a truly peacable people they will be hard to convince, but if they do not stop the encroachment there will be only the peace of the grave for them. I hope it doesn’t come to that for them.

    we have a better history of self-reliance and resistance to governmental tyranny and we are failing in our duty to liberty, so let’s not be too harsh in our judgment of the ordinary Canadian. Oh yea, Fuck the French.canadian.

  4. Ah gun control. The fun Canadia thing to do.
    McGuinty is a tard. Listening to him is always the wrong thing to do.

    Oh Ontario.
