Gun Control Round Up

Toronto mayor wants total ban on all handguns. Chanting the all-too-familiar liberal elite mantra 'handguns kill people', as if some supernatural force is able to possess my Model 1911 and cause it to hop down the street shooting innocent bystanders all by itself, mayor Miller blunders forth seemingly oblivious to one of the reasons the liberals just lost power in Canada. Read the whole article. This related article, convinces me that Canadian politicians need two things: a mirror and a good psychiatrist.

Update

Canadians weigh in here, here and here.

LA County Sheriffs Department embarks on gun-return taxation scheme. It's going to cost you over 50 bucks to get your 'seized' firearm back - even if legally owned and not associated with a crime. Looks like revenue generation trumps the Second Amendment and private property rights.
"I would say it's communism," said Gene Fister, 70. "But taking something that belongs to someone else and charging them to get it back -- it's worse. It's stealing."

... you can say that again.

And for anybody that still doesn't get it, the Second Amendment 'means what is says'.
