Skip to comments.Canadian anti-gunner reveals much about prohibitionist mindset

The Vancouver Sun is reporting perhaps inadvertently what neighboring Washington State gun owners have long suspected, that in the eyes of a gun control advocate, all guns are potentially bad and need to be controlled.,
Kenneth Epps, with Canadas Project Ploughshare, a non-governmental organization (NGO) recognized by the United Nations as a Canadian arms control group, was flustered yesterday when his countrys delegation threw a curveball into the U.N.s negotiations over a proposed small arms trade treaty, discussed by this column earlier.
Epps is ballistic that Canadians want to exempt hunting rifles from the treaty language. He used this telling observation as his argument:
He said there is very little difference between a sniper rifle and a hunting rifle, and that both are dangerous in the wrong hands.Vancouver Sun
Epps clearly represents the gun prohibition movement, though he is a bit more candid than his contemporaries on this side of the border. His observations reflect just what is wrong with a global gun control treaty, and why as the National Rifle Associations Wayne LaPierre made very clear during his remarks yesterday that treaty faces an uphill fight if it ever is adopted and sent to the United States Senate for ratification.
"If the weapons are being used to kill civilians, or for criminal activity, it doesn't matter whether it's a sports rifle or a military rifle. From a humanitarian perspective, all firearms need to be controlled, and that's the bottom line."Kenneth Epps, Canadian gun prohibitionist

He’s more honest than most gun grabbers. They usually only argue for common sense gun control laws when this is their real agenda.
Arrogance without bounds, nay, premeditative mass murderer without wish to be tried or criticized... sounds like someone we know. We need to push these off to their aristocratic realizations and dare them push the red button.
I really think tar and feathers should be brought back into use.
Tar and feathers? Boiled hemp rope would be better.
perhaps for some of them, but public humiliation would be better for the majority.
Who cares what a Hoser thinks? eh? Stay in Canada and STFU.
Epps is ballistic .... He said there is very little difference between a sniper rifle and a hunting rifle, and that both are dangerous in the wrong hands. .... "If the weapons are being used to kill civilians, or for criminal activity, it doesn't matter whether it's a sports rifle or a military rifle.This is nothing new.
That Paul schmuck who runs the Brady Bunch has been making that claim for years. To them 'Hunting Riles' are Sniper Rifles and need to be banned -- period.
I came across it by accident when a link to the Brady Bunch Facebook's account, or maybe this asshat Paul's account, was posted somewhere on a gun thread. And the 'funny' thing was that all the brain dead 'people' who were cheering for this 'Ban Sniper Rifle' nonsense were young teens who can't even own a weapon, for sure never fired one, and weren't even legal age to vote.
He said there is very little difference between a fighting knife and a kitchen knife,
and that both are dangerous in the wrong hands.Vancouver Sun
Also, things that are blunt are banned, and things that are heavy are banned, and things that are blunt AND heavy are RIGHT OUT AS WELL!!!
Well, lets see... that about cover it then???
