Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

So this is how one becomes a "Super-Ultra-Mega Poobah" on the Blue Line Forums - by continually posting disgraceful comments. We argue amongst ourselves whether civilians have the discernment and self control to carry a firearm in public, yet some of us can't even resist the urge to fire o...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

In other words, the point is that you're a paranoid American wannabe. No. If I was a "paranoid American wannabe" then I'd be arguing in favour of more restrictive firearms legislation. I will, however, admit that you are somewhat correct in your argument - the C.C.C may not make an allowa...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

The topic is CCW (or ATC) for civilians. You can't poop out a statement like that and not justify it. I apologize, sincerely, if I"m missing something. Please explain. What you're missing is Section 34 of the Criminal Code of Canada, genius. Section 34 of the Criminal Code of Canada does not m...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

Would I use a gun to defend myself/loved ones from "grievous bolidy harm"... Fuck yeah. Why not. This is legal already. You don't need to make any changes to the law for this. Huh? Surely you are generalizing and simplifying and playing dirty pool, too? The topic is CCW (or ATC) for civil...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

Agreed, there are scores of people to be found who would be responsible with a CCW, I just fear there are too many who WOULD get licenced who aren't that responsible. As Jim Street pointed out, the police really don't need semi-trained individuals jumping in to assist. Note: I say semi-trained beca...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

How many trained, certified, practiced, responsible, accountable citizens are there? I mean sure there are a lot of people on this forum who I'd be comfortable having CCW's but most of them are ALREADY carrying LEO's, or on their way to becoming such. Trained & practised citizens? Think about a...

Re: How arming citizens with guns might cut crime

You shouldn't be popping off irrational statements like "People should be allowed to own and carry anything they feel is necessary to protect themselves." You seem to be saying that if someone "feels" it's necessary to carry an MP5 then he should be "allowed" to carry i...

Re: RCMP Auxiliary

This started out as a good discussion, then it started getting really goofy, but then you had to go there.
Sometimes it's prudent to keep your mouth shut, or your fingers off the keyboard.

OK I'm splitting hairs, I know, but I had to check this out. :crazy: :((
I counted the beats and timed it and I get around 100 bpm. Why did I do that? Because if it is 120 bpm then it would be march tempo. Who wouldn't like to do drill to Ride of the Valkyries? 88)

My apologies to all for the confusion. :oops:
I was referring to RCMP Auxiliaries - not OPP.
RCMP Auxiliaries don't have a blue stripe anymore but I think that they did in the past.

Re: No More Yellow Strip for RCMP A/Cst???

Everybody involved in this discussion seems to have ignored the fact that some citizens/civilians are drawn to Auxiliary policing for other reasons besides the vaunted and ballyhooed ride-alongs with regular members. Some of these "other reasons" include programs like the following: Block ...

Iggy proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's a buffoon.
Go back to Harvard, Iggy - there you will be in good company with other buffoons....like Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
