    I just don't agree with handgun hunting in Canada.
    Like I said, there are places you can go to do it legally.
    Let me put it another way.
    I don't/won't shoot things that I don't/ won't eat.
    That's my choice, my decision.
    I'm not out there rallying for the cancellation of coyote and wolf hunting,
    but I personally don't want to have anything to do with it.
    Big deal
    Because you coyote hunt, does that make me an enemy of hunting, no
    I just don't want anything to do with it.
    Is that allowed, or do all hunters have to have the same opinion.

I suggest you do some research.
    I respect most cop opinion but from everything I've heard, I wouldn't classify Gilcrest as a cop, or ex cop, I've heard all the stories, from other cops, some on here

I hope some of my retired brothers and sisters don't take offence but.....I would much rather stand beside a civilian handgun shooter than most sworn ones. I have had an officer hit my target on a range on a regular basis. This wouldn't be bad if they were not 5 positions over from me. I have never seen a civilian shooter do this. I have seen range instructors shoot across the range striking a wall with an unintentional discharge. Never seen a civilian do that. there should be nothing wrong with open carry while in the bush. Personally, I think the gang bangers and thugs who carry may think different if they issued CCW's in Canada to anyone who wanted to go thru a course. I live and worked a border town across from Detroit, so we were one of the largest ports of entry for illegal firearms making their way down the 401 to TO. Comparing a hunter with a criminal who carries a gun, and shoots another criminal IS CRIMINAL. We are not criminals, so don't compare me having a handgun in the bush to shoot a grouse to a drug dealer shooting another over turf.
    Well I was not going to make any more posts on this thread as I was a bit out of my league in my earlier post, but I have learned from those who know more than me.

    Thank you for your comments. And thank you for your service.

    They are all tools. None are more dangerous than the other when used properly.

    Why not a grenade launcher, M16, flamethrower or tank? They are all tools and no more dangerous than anything else if used properly.

    There obviously has to be limits on these things ... its not a liberal fear thing ... its simply that the majority rules.

    If you think most cops on the force have ,ore knowledge of firearms then the average owner you will be sadly mistake. I know one of the trainers for Ottawa. Most Police barely pass.

    I suggest we ban any and all guns capable of firing a second shot. In fact maybe all guns should be banned a bow an arrow is suitable isn't it?
