One thing you can say about Justin Trudeau, he’s consistent. Consistently wrong. His latest brain fart is telling Canadians that they do not have the right to self-defense. If you are confronted with someone pointing a gun at you, you have the responsibility to die because defending yourself is something you just mustn’t do. Victims aren’t meant to survive, that’s why they are called victims.
Trudeau isn’t the dumbest Canadian. Those who voted for him hold that title. Trudeau said:
“Guns are for hunting and target practice, but never for self-defense.”
Trudeau says that Canada has a completely different mindset than Americans do as he works on banning all handguns….from law-abiding citizens. No one in Canada has a right to defend themselves, their family, or their property with a firearm, Trudeau declared.
“We have a culture where the difference is: Guns can be used for hunting or for sport shooting in Canada – and there are lots of gun owners, and they’re mostly law-respecting and law-abiding – but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. That’s not a right that you have in the Constitution or anywhere else.”
“There’s this sense that Canada responded to the shooting in Texas by suddenly turning around and banning guns. But we’ve been working on this for seven years. We’ve had a lot of setbacks, but since we got elected seven years ago, we’ve been steadily working on strengthening gun control.”
“You can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada. It’s not a right that you have,” says Trudeau.

The Trudeau-backed measure allows current handgun owners to keep them, but it would cap the number already in Canada.
“This is a concrete and real national measure that will go a long way towards keeping Canadians safe,” Trudeau told a news conference in Ottawa.
In 2010, Trudeau warned against gun control measures, saying that requirements to register them was a first step toward taking firearms away from citizens. But even then, he referred to guns as tools for hunting, and not self-defense.
“Here in Canada, we have a culture that has grown up with guns and it respects the need to go out into the wilderness and shoot things from time to time,” Trudeau said.
