    Suuuure. Criminals are getting guns in the evil bad US of A. Bad guys are sneaking across the borders to buy $700 Colts and $800 Heckler & Koch pistols to commit crimes with. While ignoring the $300 Norinco M1911 and P226 copies that are completely legal for sale in Canada.

    Hell, Canada has a better selection of firearms than we do here in the states. I would love to be able to get one of these Swiss Arms PE90's

    Or those Norinco M14 knockoffs. Both of which are banned from importation in the US.

    the fact that mexico and canada are both suddently harping on how "something has to be done about guns in the US" is disturbing and ominous if you ask me...a possible strategy for a president to unilaterally make a "treaty" with foreign powers to do away with these guns based on international reasons?

    Does the volume of illegal arms include those arms Canadian subjects simply refused to surrender?

    Nah, didn't think so.

    If the Canadians would only register all of their firearms these sort of evil act(s) by ner-do-wells would never occur, right?
    Or are these evil-doers getting all their guns from VA?

    Maybe it's bad news for Americans, though I'm slightly confused as to how. But it's good news for Canadians because the entire premise is that it's criminals commiting crimes with illegal firearms, and not once is registration or tougher laws for law-abiding citizens mentioned.

    So yea, as long as they aren't passing new laws or making new taxes or limiting magazine capacities to 3 rounds it's almost a victory.

    I've seen too many Us articles where 'stricter regulation' of 'assault weapons' is required because of what criminals do. It's kind of good to see a clear distinction between civilian ownership and criminal use. It's great actually, they never even mention civilian ownership, it's all about criminal use.
