The key line is at the end of this excerpt:

The latest crime data released by Statistics Canada make a mockery of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s posturing on gun violence.

The newly released data on homicides and gun violence in Canada during 2018 hold some surprises. Overall, murders are down – not up. Gun killings are down – not up. And gang-related homicides are also down – not up. This holds true almost everywhere in Canada, except in Ontario and Quebec.

For the Liberal government in Ottawa hell-bent on banning hunting and sport rifles, the cold, hard truth spelled out in this StatsCan report is very inconvenient, indeed.

... It’s almost like criminal gangs are the problem – not lawful gun ownership.

You, you fact teller, you. Oh, just because you use facts you think you have a better argument or are even rooted in reality. :grin:

Seriously, it is quite difficult to conjure how one can ignore a stream of factual data yet not be found mentally incompetent. Yet there they are and unfortunately in 'leadership' positions. How long shall we endure being in this hand basket?
