From praising China’s authoritarian government to freezing the bank accounts of truckers protesting his draconian Covid lock downs, Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical tendencies know no bounds.
He just can’t help himself.
And with this latest action, Trudeau is cementing himself as the most anti-freedom leader in the English-speaking world.
Canada bans the sale, transfer, and purchase of handguns
On October 21st Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that his government was prohibiting the sale, purchase, and transfer of handguns immediately.
Trudeau had initially announced his plans back in May to enact the ban, which was met with stiff opposition from one of Canada’s most conservative provinces, Alberta.
Alberta’s government has flat out said that it will refuse to enforce any of the federal government’s anti-gun restrictions.
This latest ban on the sale, purchase, and transfer of handguns follows the banning of the importation of handguns into Canada back in August.
All of these latest restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms are the “nation’s strongest gun control measures in 40 years,” according to a Reuters report.
Trudeau proves to be a tyrant
For political observers, this is yet another blatant trampling over the rights of Canadians by Justin Trudeau, who has proven himself to be as arrogant and authoritarian as he is woke.
As is typical for gun banners, they’ll use the victims of their own failed gun control policies to justify more of the same even with mountains of evidence pointing to disastrous results.
Time and again, disarming law-abiding citizens has shown to give armed criminals the upper hand and only serves to embolden them.
Not only that, but gun bans don’t affect criminals who just ignore the law and continue carrying weapons regardless.
Look no further to the nations in Europe that have enacted stiff gun control regulations yet have climbing rates of gun crime.
Sadly, the Canadian Conservative Party was completely inept in holding Trudeau accountable for his draconian COVID policies during the 2021 federal election.
Or, worse, the Canadians have just now become too comfortable with their despotic government overlords.
Disarmed civilians embolden tyrannical governments
History makes it clear that tyrants fear an armed population.
Throughout history, dictators will use “safety” as a cover for their end goal of gun bans and gun confiscation, to only turn around and further trample on the rights of their citizens, sometimes in the most awful ways imaginable.
Hitler’s Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China and, to a lesser extent, modern Australia.
As readers will recall, Australia became a hermit nation the last couple years after it was completely locked down under the guise of keeping the population safe from COVID.
But what we witnessed on the evening news was shocking and appalling as Australians were being harassed and arrested by their own government for violating some of the most ridiculous and draconian COVID restrictions in the world.
Now, while it is a misconception that Australia outright bans guns (which they don’t), the ownership of firearms is severely restricted and therefore there are very few gun owners in the country.
The Australian government didn’t fear its people, so they did pretty well what they pleased.
The Second Amendment is a bulwark against tyranny here in the United States
Our right to keep and bear arms as enumerated in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is absolutely crucial to our freedom as a nation.
Of course, the Second Amendment doesn’t enforce itself, but is rather protected by gun-owning patriots who regularly practice their right to keep and bear arms and also protect their rights at the ballot box.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from disappearing, which is why it is crucial for gun-owning Americans to vote like their rights depend on it, because they do.
But it’s not enough just to vote for Team Republican.
There are enough gun-hating Republicans out there too.
Do your research and only support those candidates who take a no compromise position on your rights.
Do the same with organizations that you support.
There are too many “gun rights” organizations out there who claim to fight for your rights, but who actually give their donors’ money to Democrats like Harry Reid.
