If It Saves One Life, It’s Worth It

Really? Would you build a $2 Billion hospital if it was only going to save one life? And would you keep it open, year after year for $75 million, still waiting and and hoping to save that one life?

Didn’t think so. Funny thing is, a $2 Billion hospital would in reality save thousands of lives every year, yet I still don’t think anyone would sink this kind of money into one.

But there’s the logic behind the gun registry – something that has yet to save even one life.

    Check out this pro gun song for protection! We deserve the right to protect ourselves! You can hear a clip of the song on Preacher Stone’s website http://www.preacherstone.com/music.html

    but here are some of the lyrics:

    All them Politicians, forming coalitions
    So they can take away my guns.
    Hell their thinking like fools,
    cause bad guys break the rules
    That’s why we call them criminals son!

    Keep on trucking, loving the articles. If their argument is “if it saves one life” mine is “I’m more interested on a system that is CERTAIN to save lives. Like the police, or the medical system. I can’t say I care about a system that “could” save a life when we have plenty that prove themselves day after day”.

    Donated to the CSSA, feels good man. Sending letters to MPs!

    There is an estimated 3.8 million legal gun owners in Canada. In 2011, there was a spike in crimes involving guns. All of those incidents were committed by criminals and gang members using illegally acquired handguns and a few banned’ assault weapons. The ban didn’t affect the criminals, however. Toronto led the country with 45 shootings by (mainly) Jamaican gang members.

    It should be noted that no target shooters, farmers or duck hunter were involved in any of the incidents. The Long Gun Registry, in spite of its $2 billion tag, did not stop a single gun crime from happening during its entire existence. Julian Fantino, the former OPP commissioner stated:

    “We have an ongoing gun crisis including firearms-related homicides lately in Toronto, and a law registering firearms has neither deterred these crimes nor helped us solve any of them. None of the guns we know to have been used were registered, although we believe that more than half of them were smuggled into Canada from the United States. The firearms registry is long on philosophy and short on practical results considering the money could be more effectively used for security against terrorism as well as a host of other public safety initiatives. ”

    The Long Gun registry did nothing to keep Canadians safer. Law abiding citizens who own guns are not the problem. But the criminals and the crazies will always be encouraged to commit gun
    crimes while the rest of us continue to remain defenceless.
