It all sounds a bit too familiar.
A political issue with a perceived division between rural and urban populations (except this particular issue is a public safety one, first and foremost, that should be above such politicization).
A gun community with some valid concerns but who instead choose to make gun registration, and not any other form of registration, a battle over “freedom“.
An aggressive “us vs. them” campaign, including radio ads and billboards, that leaves no room for compromise or cooperation.
A politician suggesting that there is a conspiracy between police and government to support the long-gun registry so that they can eventually take away Canadians’ guns.
I mean, where the hell did all this come from?
Ah, nevermind then. It makes sense now.
And for the record, I am just as upset that Avaaz is meddling in our politics. They suck too.
