  1. Sounds a bit one sided.
    I don’t think guns are the problem. Criminals with guns are the problem.
    How many of the people that commit crimes with a gun are legally allowed to own a gun or are banned from owning a gun?
    Bring back the death penalty for murder and there won’t be any repeat offenders.
    While we are on the subject of guns, who gave the R.C.M.P. the order to collect the guns in High River. Somebody had to give the order.
