That's what frustrates me. It's not that all gun laws are inherently bad ideas; I don't mind licensing to ensure that gun owners have received basic education and training, and that violent criminals don't get guns legally.
The trouble is, negotiations aren't done in good faith. Laws should be a give-and-take process. Instead, they just take and take, and legal gun owners are never given anything. It's obvious that most countries are heading for a situation where law-abiding people don't have guns; only criminals and the police, which creates further dependency and injustice in society. No trust, only the threat of violence inflicted by the powerful upon the disempowered.
And so, I feel the need to fight against every new law because there is no victory, only defeat delayed. >>37130831
Of course it's a shame. >>37135426
I'll admit that it's easy to tell anyone who calls people niggers to go back to /pol/, but do you seriously think that changing the demographics of a country won't have an effect? Personally, I think that immigration is one of the riskiest government policies. Of course there are great immigrants, and Canada is better off with them. Mass importation of people because nobody here can be assed to have children, however, is potentially disastrous.
I'm honestly more worried about some of their children. I work with a lot of immigrants, and the smart ones know that they came to Canada for a reason - it works, and they appreciate the differences that make it work compared to their home countries. Their kids, on the other hand, don't have that same perspective; on the one hand some are brainwashed by gangs, extremists and the like, and on the other we get an education system that denigrates Canada and its achievements, and casts whatever success we have as the result of oppression rather than good choices and hard work. See in Europe, where the children of immigrants somehow manage to be more ignorant and backwards than their parents.
