    I had no idea Canada had such repressive laws regarding handguns and non existent CCW.

    Just another thing I really dislike about our socialist neighbor Canada.

    The Canadian people are getting what they want. Like a dog that heels at the feet of its master, they choose to be slaves of the central bureaucracy. How sad it is to see the self-dehumanization of a once Free people.

    "The federal agency didn’t identify the permit holder or their home province."

    Some people are more equal than others or in this case one person is more equal than everyone else. Even his/her name is privacy protected. Nice.

    Times have certainly changed. Here is a copy of my father's CCW in 1945 for the princely sum of $0.50

    I know of one case of a retired Superior Court judge who was refused a carry permit in SF County.

    Don’t come back to us asking to be able to protect yourself from all those guys you sent up the river, just call 911 if you think someone might be trying to kill you.

    Imagine being the criminal that picks the one guy in the entire country who can legally carry and attack him. Bad guy wins the prize for the worse victim selection of all time....

    If so, I bet he carries it in his purse.

    " "Authorization to Carry" loaded guns for personal protection from human attackers. "

    What a very specific way to put it. So, if I wanted to carry a loaded gun on my way to the range, that is fine? Farmers can carry for pests?

    As an ex, I can assure you it didn’t start that way. Brainwashing in the schools, group think and PC craziness has done this over a couple / few of generations.
    There are few left that remember what real freedom and personal responsibility means. The kids today think this is normal. I don’t know how you get it back.
    One thing to remember about Canada and Canadians is they never fought the “empire” for their freedom nor had a civil war for their beliefs. Their culture therefore is very much different.

    Indeed, quite different.
    I have some Canadian friends and I get the impression they look askance at Americans like we're stuck in the Wild West or something.
    I don't lecture them on their system and don't let them lecture me on ours.
    I feel sorry for them and the freedoms they've given up. But it's their choice, I guess.

    0ne permit out of 37 million population?

    Then even our worst State of Affairs, Hawaii, is doing better with 42 permits out of 1.42 million.

    Canada has had a handgun registry since 1934, and I once read a statement by the RCMP that not a single crime, except perhaps tangentially, had been solved as a result.

    Canada is also where you can be sent to jail for saying that Islam is anything but a peaceful, benign religion. To even quote the Islamic Koran, pointing our the racism, hatred, pedophilia, etc. and not even editorializing these facts can get you arrested for "hate speech". It certainly is not a free country as we know it in America, even with all the limitations on our liberty.

    funny thing about Canadians many of them while on their 6 months in Florida getting away from the harsh winter back home, I see them all the time in lgs's trying to purchase a handgun, some are so arrogant they tell the shop owner how about if I give you double for it, which results in them being told to leave the store
