It can happen to us

Dear editor:

Now that Bill C-68 is law, there are a few things other people should know. This law is a first few steps on the road to complete gun disarmament.

Gun confiscation and registration have been tried in a few other countries--with catastrophic consequences. The most catastrophic one was back in the 1930s.

“This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.” (Adolf Hitler, 1935).

The German people voted him into office in 1933 and they never got to vote again until after World War II. Will a third Liberal majority government bring to us the same now that Bill C-68 is law?

The next on the list is Australia, which now has gone one year on gun confiscation. Some 640,381 guns were surrendered to government to be destroyed in a program costing taxpayers $500 million.

But, continent wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent, assaults are up 8.6 percent, and armed robberies are up 44 percent, along with 300 percent more break-ins and assaults on the elderly.

Just think what will happen here when our law-abiding people register their firearms, and the criminal element knows where they all are so they can steal them (you cannot use your firearm for self-defence as it goes against Bill C-68 and will be confiscated for unlawful use).

Take heed. This happened to two of our modern countries--and can happen to us.

Signed,
