Stupid Toronto Star Reporters and Canadian Firearms Law

The-Star-Reporter-Jacques-Gallant-PFTR

You can’t stop people from being stupid. You can, as a reporter writing about stupid people, base your story at least in the same universe as reality, if not on the same planet.

Jacques Gallant, a staff reporter for Toronto’s The Star newspaper, clearly doesn’t have a clue what he’s writing about in his article “Handguns Easily Resold to Potential Criminals” when he states:

There are no safeguards in Canadian firearms legislation to prevent people from purchasing a large number of handguns and then illegally transferring them to potential criminals.

Jacques Gallant isn’t much of a researcher either, as it takes all of 10 seconds and a search engine to come up with Section 23.2 of Canada’s Firearms Act, which reads:

Section 23.2 (1) A person may transfer a prohibited firearm or a restricted firearm if, at the time of the transfer,
(a) the transferee holds a licence authorizing the transferee to acquire and possess that kind of firearm;
(b) the transferor has no reason to believe that the transferee is not authorized to acquire and possess that kind of firearm;
(c) the transferor informs the Registrar of the transfer;
(d) if the transferee is an individual, the transferor informs a chief firearms officer of the transfer and obtains the authorization of the chief firearms officer for the transfer;
(e) a new registration certificate for the firearm is issued in accordance with this Act; and
(f) the prescribed conditions are met.

The law is quite clear about who may transfer handguns (classed as restricted firearms in Canada) and to whom.

Mr. Gallant is, at best, disingenuous with his assertion. At worst he is intentionally misleading the public, if not outright lying to them.

Mr. Gallant is not really a reporter of this story though, is he? He’s more the manufacturer of a press release meeting The Star‘s anti-gun bias, one shared by the astoundingly ignorant Wendy Cukier, president of the Coalition for Gun Control, whom Gallant quotes favourably.

Of course you could have restrictions on how many firearms someone could purchase, of course you could take advantage of the inspection provisions that already exist but what we’ve seen in recent years is an erosion of the legislation and its enforcement” under the current federal government.

Cukier’s drivel is hogwash, of course, but Windy Wendy never met a firearms fact she wasn’t willing to overlook.

The repeal of the long gun registry had absolutely nothing to do with handguns and she knows it. But why get a little thing like the truth get in the way of some easy PR, right Wendy?

The only thing Mr. Gallant actually gets correct in his article’s opening statement is his assertion there are no limits to how many firearms a person may purchase.

There aren’t, and nor should there be, since every single firearm purchase must be approved by police, specifically the Chief Firearms Officer of each province. In Ontario that is Ontario Provincial Police Superintendent Chris Wyatt.

The case Mr. Gallant writes about is the unbelievably stupid Andrew Winchester, who bought 47 handguns and then resold them illegally to his high school friend, Nour Marakah.

Andrew Winchester passed the Canadian Firearms Safety Course for both non-restricted and restricted firearms. He then applied for and received a Canadian firearms license. This license was issued by Superintendent Chris Wyatt’s office. The same man whose office approved each and every one of the 47 handgun purchase Andrew Winchester made over a 5-month period in 2012.

Now I’m not for a second saying Wyatt’s office did anything wrong in this case. They didn’t.

Prior to approving Andrew Winchester’s firearms license Wyatt’s office is required by law to ensure there is no criminal record for the applicant and to check personal references. Since Mr. Winchester was not a criminal (yet) he passed these tests with flying colors.

The same goes for each one of the handgun purchases. Every time Mr. Winchester purchased one or more handguns his name was run through the system. An updated background check is performed each time a person buys a firearm. If there is a red flag the purchase is not approved.

Until guns purchased by Mr. Winchester showed up at crime scenes there was no reason to suspect anything was amiss. Again, just as it should be if we stand on the principle that a person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Andrew Winchester is now serving an 8-year prison sentence for his gross stupidity.

How he thought he could illegally sell handguns legally registered to himself and get away with it simply boggles the mind.

One would think being paid $900 per purchase over and above the cost of the guns and ammunition might be a clue all is not legal. Not Andrew Winchester.

It’s almost as stupid as an [alleged] reporter writing such uninformed drivel as Jacques Gallant does and being paid good money to do so.

“Obama Death Threats Completely IGNORED by Mainstream Media!”

Obama-Death-Threats-Completely-Ignored-by-Mainstream-Media

Obama-Death-Threats-Completely-Ignored-by-Mainstream-Media

 

“Obama Death Threats Completely IGNORED by Mainstream Media!”

Can you imagine seeing that headline if it were actually true?

Never in a million years.

No, if anyone were publicly threatening the life of the Pretender-In-Chief, their “Anointed One“, they’d be screaming about it from the rooftops. It would make front page headlines in every major newspaper in the nation instantly.

But since it was just Governor Romney who was threatened hundreds of times, both during and after the Presidential Debate, well…

Who Cares?

Can you imagine if Twitter lit up with death threats against The Anointed One like it did against Governor Romney?  The Lamestream Media would search to the ends of the earth to find the culprits.  However when it’s Governor Romney being threatened it’s just…

[Yawn] “Move along now… Nothing to see here folks.”

That’s the overwhelming sentiment of the Lamestream Media.

Who Cares?

Threats against Governor Romney is no story at all since they would rather see him dead than win the election.

That ridiculous sentiment is all that’s left of the carcass of Journalistic Integrity in America today, as evidenced by the antics of the [alleged] debate moderator Candy Crowley.

The blatant hypocrisy makes me cringe.

It is important to stress that these Twitter accounts are genuine, they are not fakes. Many of them have thousands of previous tweets.  The following Tweets are just some of the ones compiled by Twitchy.com both during and after the debate;

“If Romney win this election, he might as well wear a shirt that says “Assassinate Me Bitch”.

“Yall ready to assassinate romney?”

“Somebody needs to assassinate This mofo Romney.”

“Romney make me wanna hop through the tv & just assassinate his ass.”

“I aint gone lie… Food stamps the shit! I mite assassinate romney my damn self if he get elected!”

“If romney get elected i hope a nigga assassinate his bitchass.

“No birth control???? Lol rlly Romney the american population is going to overflow and then we’ll have to resort to murder and you’ll be #1.”

“At this point in time I am completely prepared to MURDER ROMNEY MYSELF!”

“If Romney win, IM GOING TO JAIL FOR MURDER cuz imma whack his bitch ass ASAP.”

“If Mitt Romney wins, which I doubt, someone should assassinate him before he ruins the lives of our generation & our children.”

“IF ROMNEY GETS ELECTED AND TAKES AWAY MY FOOD STAMPS IMA SEND SOMEONE TO MURDER HIS ASS.”

It is important to emphasize that these are just a selection of scores and scores of threats to assassinate Romney that have exploded on Twitter over the last 12 hours. We didn’t even have time to check Facebook or any other social networks.

Here’s a short sampling of the remarks on Twitter.  You can find lots more on Twitchy.com, who compiled a bunch of them.

Where no racism exists MSNBC manufactures it

msnbc-manufactures-racism-claim

There is a reason that mainstream media outlets are in decline.  North Americans are sick and tired of manufactured “stories” that are nothing but a disgrace.  The latest example of such despicable tactics comes from NBC News and their so-called “reporting” on the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida.

It’s interesting to note that not a single human being was willing to have their name associated with writing this trash piece designed to turn George Zimmerman into a racist.  They were very happy to spew their garbage across the internet even though they were too cowardly to attach their own names to it.

The byline, such as it is, reads “By msnbc.com staff and NBC News.”

I have the balls to put my name to every single article I write.  I do my research and do my best to tell the truth as best I can determine it given the facts at hand.  It’s a disgrace that MSNBC.com and NBC News isn’t willing to do the same.

Here is what the clowns and bigots at these so-called venerable news outlets wrote while cowardly hiding behind their corporate names:

“This guy looks like he’s up to no good … he looks black,” Zimmerman told a police dispatcher from his car.

They took this information from the transcript of the 911 call that George Zimmerman made prior to shooting Martin.

What these so-called reporters conveniently left out are the critical fact of who asked about race and who didn’t.

But there’s no story in that, is there?  There’s no story in a non-racist shooting since the President Himself has declared this shooting to be race-based.

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Really?

The President wasn’t there, of course, and he didn’t know the facts of the case but none of that stopped Obama the Almighty from declaring the dead black youth as his own.  With Obama it’s always about race.

The ACTUAL transcript of the segment in question reads as follows:

Congratulations Samantha Stosur on winning the US Open Tennis Championship!

samantha-stosur-us-open-women's-champion

Congratulations Samantha Stosur on winning the US Open Tennis Championship!

Samantha Stosur played an amazing match yesterday.  It was a pleasure, a thrill to watch that young woman run everything down, serve her heart out, hit winner after winner and all in all, wipe the court with Serena Williams.

It was the performance of a lifetime, and Samantha deserves all the credit in the world for winning handily in straight sets over the person everyone seemed to think would walk away with the trophy without breaking a sweat.

I’m not one for slamming Americans for being Americans, but Sunday showed their arrogance in an ugly manner.

On behalf of tennis fans the world over, Congratulations Samantha Stosur for winning the US Open!  You earned it!

Hey, I figure someone’s gotta say it… Congratulations, that is, since all the moronic mainstream media can seem to focus on is Serena Williams and her atrocious behaviour at the start of the second set.

They seem to have forgotten that someone actually WON the US Open Tennis Championship, and it wasn’t that whiney crybaby Serena Williams.

The only thing more atrocious than Williams’ behaviour and the resulting media frenzy over it is the actions of the US Tennis Association (USTA).

For Williams’ atrocious behaviour and utter lack of respect for the Chair Umpire who, lest we forget, actually interpreted the rules correctly, the USTA deemed it sufficient to fine the Whiney Williams Sister a whopping, get this, $2,000.

If that’s all they’re going to do to set an example, then why even bother.

They might as well have spit in Samantha Stosur’s face.

Two grand to Serena Williams is like a nickel to you and me.  She won’t even know it’s missing, and it certainly won’t serve as a corrective measure for her pathetic behaviour.

Serena Williams, the mainstream media and the USTA ought to be ashamed of themselves, their respective performances and actions, and of their utter disrespect for the woman who fought like a true champion and actually WON the US Open Tennis Championship.

They all owe Samantha Stosur, the 2011 US Open Women’s Champion, an apology.

Of course, I don’t think I’ll be holding my breath waiting for that to happen…

It’s a good thing Samantha Stosur’s name will be engraved on that trophy… given the media attention to the actual Champion, it’s probably the only way we’ll ever know she won.

Of worms and sunshine: Syed B. Soharwardy: Calgary’s “Supreme Islamic Leader”

Calgary Imam Syed B. Soharwardy

I would have thought that after receiving the legal bitch-slap of the century at the hands of Ezra Levant and then being turned loose to be laughed at and mocked by every Canadian from Vancouver to Halifax, including his own congregation of about a dozen souls, would have been enough to take the hot air out of this vicious little islamic balloon…….but I was wrong.

It seems that the sting of a public ass-whipping has worn off and the permanently offended, overly litigious, pious and thin skinned little worm, Syed Soharwardy, now seeks, once again, the light of day as an”authority” on all things islamic.

Syed B. Soharwardy has grabbed the limelight as the “go to guy” for islamo-info……..problem is that he is still having a little difficulty with “inflation-itis“…..(and I’m not talking about his ego yet)……..now, according to “Syed B’s Stats”, the population figures for muslims living in the Calgary area have tripled in less than 5 years……wow!!!……Is it just me or is there anything to be gained by falsely claiming that the Calgary’s population is 15 % muslim…..as opposed to the reality of about 3%…………hmmmmm?????

Mr. Sean Meyers of the Calgary Herald, and not one to break with precedent, couldn’t be bothered to do a little fact checking:

BLASTOGRAM: CNN’S Journalistic Farce

cnn_logo

Rejection is tough to take, particularly when you don’t know why you are being rejected.

Gary Johnson was deeply wounded for being shunned by CNN as though he were invisible.

Despite his track record and declaration of his candidacy to run in the Republican presidential primaries, the former New Mexico governor was not invited to participate in CNN’s 90-minute GOP New Hampshire presidential debate broadcast on June 13.

Frankly, I don’t think Johnson missed much. But presidential contenders have to grab as much limelight as possible, especially when opponents are making hay at their expense.

Johnson, who has no federal political experience, had nevertheless met all the complex financial and filing criteria that should have won him inclusion in the debate.

He has been equal in the polls with some of the folks who appeared on CNN where presstitutes, the likes of moderator John King, allowed himself to be coerced into choreographing a journalistic disgrace when he diverted a 10-minute chunk of the debate into a nonsensical game-show atmosphere.
