    Prime Minister Harper now has an important decision to make: what guns should be issued? These or these?

    Yeah you can't call us 'hosers' anymore. We'll blow your head off... or at least wing you.

    Don't Canadians own more guns per capita than Americans?

    Anyway, who would flee America for Canada? Isn't that like deciding you hate cola, throwing away all your Coke and buying Pepsi instead?

    This just begs the resurrection of an old and retired website:

    Canada has a warship?

    Canada may have more firearms per capita but of all those firearms the vast majority of them are for hunting. Assault weapons, semi auto and full auto, etc are illegal. Some people can obtain handgun licenses but even to take your handgun anywhere like the gunclub or whereever, you must first notify police and must only travel from A to B with no stops in between. Gun laws in Canada are VERY strict, while in the USA they sell guns to almost anyone including the blind guy that got a permit to carry a handgun!

    I'd sooner live in Afghanistan than in USA. George Bush is the only terrorist.


    And it is about time our border guards got guns. Making them do a dangerous job like that and not giving them the means to protect themselves is rediculous.

    What's more astounding? The fact that they are not armed? or that there are people who believe that they should NOT be armed?

    Why does it take 10 years to issue and train these officers?

    I wondered the same thing myself. They mentioned on the radio this morning that they have to train the trainers first. Pffft. Most of the border guards likely know how to use them now. I think it is more likely a lame excuse for not having it in the budget now.

    They could use spudcannons as temporary armaments. Load em with minimaglites for long-range tonking.

    More like Diet Pepsi.

    You've been hearing too many sensationalist stories.

    Good point.

    The London police still don't carry guns, and I bet they see a lot more dangerous situations than Canadian border patrols. After all, they operate in a high-density urban environment with a pretty high crime rate.

    That's what I figured.

    Well, not that strict relatively speaking - I think it's pretty much the same here.
