For RCMP Only: Steal 6 Handguns and get Conditional Discharge

Yes, you read that right.  Christopher di Armani has the rest:

Imagine that you, mere citizen, managed to get your hands on 6 handguns and as part of your job you are to destroy them.  You don’t fulfill your job requirements for reasons the world will never know and take the handguns home.  Eventually (7 years later!) you are caught with these 6 stolen handguns.

Were you a mere citizen instead of a former RCMP member you would be in prison for a very long time.

Thank God for Daniel Daudet that he was once an RCMP Member, huh?

CSSA president takes heat for Canada’s position in U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

428 Guns Vanish From Police Arsenals: RCMP

Dennis E. Florianby Dennis E. Florian

The utter hypocrisy of our overseers really is astonishing sometimes.  Maybe, instead of sanctimoniously lecturing people like Ian Thomson about onerous “proper storage” regulations, cops should be asking how many of their guns have “fallen into the wrong hands?”

A recent Access to Information Act request by Gary Mauser and Dennis Young found that the RCMP has ‘fessed up that 428 firearms have magically up and buggered off from the possession of the RCMP, other police services and public agencies across Canada.

As Sheldon Clare, the NFA President, pointed out: “The police are quick to point accusing fingers at law-abiding gun owners who have their firearms stolen from them but aren’t so quick to admit their failure to keep their own firearms out of the hands of criminals.”  Good thing cops are excluded from the assorted idiocies of the Firearms Act, eh?
