Assault Rifles

Seeing those weapons makes me personally feel a lot more unsafe. I think they are unnecessary. It would be funny if children screamed and cried running from them. I wonder how the police would react to that.

Have you turned on the news lately? Better safe than sorry Mr. PC.

Why would they?

Unless the parents have hyped them up with dread of the armed police and told them that the cops just shoot up the street for no reason whatsoever. Can you imagine people in Vancouver being that ill-informed, reactionary and...oh, right.

The real issue...

.... is that common men and women are not allowed to open carry. There isn't even really a course that you just take, pro forma, to get a permit. Open carrying of firearms in slave states like Canada is heavily controlled. It's difficult to say what freedom is, but if you cannot go walking with a military-grade rifle, you're certainly a slave. Don't the slaves love their unfreedom? Freedom, they don't even want it for cops!

Open carry is the WORST idea and I am a (left wing) gun nut who would get a concealed permit if that was an option here.

Cops get a report of an active shooter. Three cruisers come flying in, six cops get out. Oh look, a guy with a gun!! Pew pew!!

Not to mention the day to day looks you're going to get - it's on the edge of brandishing. Is your masculinity so feeble that you have to constantly show the public your...oh nevermind.

You know that semi-auto centre-fire rifles in Canada are limited to magazines that hold only five cartridges right? Even if they look like the US Vietnam gun (M16).

Also that real assault rifles, that is those that can function in full auto like a machine gun are prohibited, effectively illegal except to a rare and rapidly diminishing group of collectors who were grandfathered when new laws came in.

By the way , as a gun owner for the past 51 years, I think open carry of handguns is just plain stupid. You can legally carry a long gun anywhere you want; just be prepared to explain to the law that you need it at that particular place at that particular time.

If you're up Relay Creek carrying your 30-06 in the middle of October during deer season -- no sweat. At the corner of Hastings and Main on December 5; well you might have some explaining to do.

Why would you ever want to concealed carry?

Open carry is the deterrent. Anyone who sees you openly carrying knows that trying to detain you may come with a cost. That's the point to open bearing of arms, it's to establish that you're a free person, and that detaining you might have a cost.

I would never get a concealed carry permit---concealed carry could, I think, be legitimately criminalized, because carrying a concealed weapon seems weird. If you are carrying a weapon, you want everyone to see it, so that they know detaining you may carry a severe cost. In the wild west, the law was a revolver and Blackstone's Commentaries...and the revolver came first, Blackstone only came into it if the Sheriff captured you.

Defense Rifles

I don't see the need for anyone to have an assault rifle. However I do believe that defense rifles are an absolute must as a means for people to protect themselves.

Where do you live? Detroit?

Besides that, a rifle is a ridiculous defense tool. The bullets traverse walls and can kill people across the street if you miss and you would, being such a doughhead about firearms.
