Potato Salad, Handguns

Though witnesses say it was not a handgun used to shoot a Toronto schoolboy today, David Miller, like a vapid whack-a-mole, popped up to call again for a handgun ban.

He does this because he doesn't care about actually solving the problem. If a child choked to death on potato salad, David Miller would propose a handgun ban.

He would say, like he did today, that if only handguns were banned, "we would see many fewer incidents like this" tragic salad mishap.

I think we should certainly ban potato salad. Especially the eggy kind.

That stuff's awful.

Ick.

Before I get thinking about what things besides potato salad (unless lots of celery and greens are mixed in) the government should ban, in any case I'm surprised handguns are still legal in any part of Canada. Do you neighbors to the north have any sort of Second Amendment up there?

Handguns are legal, but strictly controlled.

Canada, in practial application, recognizes the existance of no rights except as imagined and granted by the State. Canada does reflect some residual of its former greatness still, but the rule of law and the idea that the State is limited in any way are now well undermined.
