Those touched by gun violence have often been important advocates for gun control. Maggie Burtinshaw was one such advocate. In 1973 her son Edward, 20, was killed by a teenager who had hidden inside a department store to steal unlocked rifles after the store closed. #cdnpoli 1/
Burtinshaw began to call for stronger gun laws. She came under attack from the gun lobby: “The gun lobbyists try to make me sound like a grieving, emotional mother.” She noted that many in the gun community seemed overly influenced by American gun culture rhetoric. #guncontrol 2/
Burtinshaw started a petition demanding stronger gun laws, and organized a panel that proposed the licensing of all owners and dealers, stronger storage laws, and stiffer penalties for gun crimes. #cdnhist 3/

1. I have a couple of thoughts about this. The classification of "culturally appropriateness" in terms of attire, holding alcohol, and #MedBikini shows a single world-view can skew results and demonstrates the importance of diversity.
2. My main issue is the classification of physicians commenting on political and social issues as unprofessional. I disagree. It is exactly because physicians have remained silent for so long on topics such as abortion and gun control, that we are in this political battle
3. Our silence has created the space for non-science to occupy and drive the conversation. Our silence is the reason why a legislator in Ohio could bring forth a bill where an #obgyn would be liable for not re-implanting an ectopic gestation and could be prosecuted for murder.

Conservative leadership candidate @PeterMacKay is promising he will weaken Canada’s firearm laws, but leaves the most important pledge he has made to the gun lobby out of his just released firearms platform. #cdnpoli #cpcldr #guncontrol 1/6
In his platform, MacKay promises to repeal Bill c-71 passed by the Liberals in 2019, which included provisions designed to strengthen background checks, record keeping, and gun transportation rules. He says he will replace it with something but provides no details. #cdnpoli 2/6
MacKay also promises to repeal the Order-in-Council issued after the #Portapique massacre by the federal government that prohibited a large number of mostly semi-automatic assault-style rifles, including the AR-15. #cdnpoli (image by @CH_Cartoon) 3/6

1/ a short thread about #guncontrol and the 🇨🇦 automatic rifle ban.

For the #cdnpoli crowd.

Q: Is the ban "undemocratic" because it has been brought forward during the pandemic?
A: No. Gun control was a platform plank for the Liberals and supported by other parties. They were
2/ democratically elected to govern. Polls showed huge support for banning this kind of weapon in Canada. They still do. The timing IS in response to the latest mass shooting in NS.

Q: But that mass shooting didn't use one of these, did it?

A: Yes, two.…
3/ Q: So one person did it. Should we all have to pay for his actions?

A: Look at the US. While gun murder rates have dropped overall, the mass shootings have increased (until the COVID-19 lockdown). 🇨🇦 has not seen anywhere near that level. But this latest shooting breaks a

Things I am over - hypocrisy and inconsistency

1) If peaceful #protest on the steps of government buildings is a right, than it also is on a football field #TakeAKnee, in a park, etc

#Thread #equity #rant (1/8)
2) If we ban #guns from some buildings in the interest of security, that means for all people - not just those that aren't white

3) If #BlueLivesMatter, do not risk our brave protectors’ health by protesting near them without #masks

#MichiganProtest (2/8)
4) If you are not wearing #facemasks given your personal #liberty, than why do women not get extended the same for #Reproductiverights

5) If all life is sacred, than why would we sacrifice 2-3% of our population by #ReopenAmerica too quickly?

Some issues are so big that they point straight to who we are and what we value as a society. There are some that are personal, personal to our lives or to our community.

Gun control, for me, is all of these things.
On a cold December evening in 1989, a military-style gun was used in a shooting that changed us all.

Today, our government banned the Ruger Mini-14, the gun used in the @polymtl massacre.

Today, we made over 1,500 military-style assault weapons models illegal. Full stop.
There are people in our community that have spent the last 30 years fighting for stronger gun control. I am humbled to know them and to work alongside them.

Though the fight is far from over, this step forward belongs to the advocates at @Polysesouvient.

Conservative MP for Medicine Hat is being interviewed by CBC. He is furious that the gov't wants to take away guns from "law-abiding gun-owners". Of course, gun owners are all law-abiding until someone isn't... 1/5
He said that it was too soon after the mass shooting in Nova Scotia. "This is not the time..." Just like the GOP in the US. Only it's NEVER the time for them. This is the classic indefinite stall. 2/5
We can't allow Canada to go down the same road as the US. We can't have a government bought and paid for by the gun lobby. We can't have heavily armed men in camo storming our legislatures. We can't have a mass shooting every day. 3/5

A recurrent M.O. of white male dominance is to pit white women against the interests of women of color. Don’t take the bait. 1/ #Biden
Sexual assault #matters. But, we only have 2 viable choices for president now. It is, as @KirstenPowers says in this helpful column, a #zerosumgame. 2/ #biden
Remember this:
#Immigration is a women’s issue.
#Healthcare is a woman’s issue.
#ClimateChange is a women’s issue.
#Education is a women’s issue.
#Guncontrol is a women’s issue.
#massincarceration is a women’s issue.
#NuclearProliferation is a women’s issue, too.

Will the Controlled Conservative Party of Canada (CCP) act out their squeeks of protest?

The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour.

CPC supporters are being slow walked into a tyrannical dictatorship ... and taking us all with them!
In 1929, the Soviet union established gun control
From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million "dissidents" who were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.…
Based on newly-discovered, secret documents from German archives, diaries and newspapers of the time, Gun Control in the Third Reich presents the definitive, yet hidden history of how the Nazi regime made use of gun control to disarm and repress its enemies and consolidate power.

Last summer, 2 teenagers legally purchased an SKS semi-automatic rifle, killed 3 people & sparked a massive manhunt until they committed suicide. This was NOT the first time the SKS assault-style rifle had been used in criminal activity. Here are a few exs: #cdnhist #cdnpoli 1/
2017: Oscar Arfmann murdered Constable John Davidson with an SKS rifle in a parking lot in British Columbia #cdnpoli #guncontrol 2/
2017: Lionel Desmond legally purchased an SKS rifle, then 2 hours later killed his wife Shanna, daughter Aaliyah (age 10) & mother Brenda. Desmond suffered from PTSD & depression. #guncontrol #cdnpoli 3/…

Some facts for every #GunControl idiot ever

A little something I stole from @robkroese


A thread

-The U.S. does not have the most mass shooting deaths of any country.

-It is outranked, per capita, by Norway, Serbia, France, Macedonia, Albania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Finland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

-In murders per capita, the U.S. is outranked by Brazil, India, Mexico, South Africa and 9 other countries. All of them have stricter gun laws than the U.S

Good Guys with Guns vs The Police

If youre an Officer or Sheriff that upholds #guncontrol at any level, believes in Red Flags, that "If you ain't got nothing to hide, you ain't got nothing to worry about.", or if only you should have machine guns...

You're stupid
If you're a Police Officer or Sheriff that believes Mental Health issues are an automatic, disqulifying factor to gun ownership, or that Gun-Free zones protect people from mass shootings or individuals hell-bent on harming the innocent...

You're not a good guy with a gun
If you're a Police Officer or Sheriff that, despite threats to their jobs and maybe even their livelihoods, you uphold your oath and swear to never enforce #guncontrol laws that your constituents and fellow citizens are being targeted with - youre, probably, a good guy with a gun

1/Concerned about sneaky legislation getting through Congress while we are all distracted by impeachment?

Did you know that You can create an account at and sign up for email alerts, track legislation and follow activities of House & Senate?

2/ You can do searches for certain topics, like #GunControl and see who is co-sponsoring bills, and what the legislative support is on bills from certain Representatives and Senators. For example, I see #EdMarkey has co-sponsored a Gun Violence Prevention Research Act.
3/ From there, I can click on Ed Markey's name to get alerts so that I know when he is co-sponsoring and voting on bills.

Bloomberg's rise from middle class guy who worked his way through college to billionaire news mogul is also one of philanthropy and left-leaning causes like #guncontrol.

Michael Bloomberg launches campaign for president
Bloomberg is a true billionaire and has always made his tax returns public. He's called on Trump, who has never made a dime on his own, to do the same.
Bloomberg may not be the guy the centrists want--or maybe he is, but this is a serious run.
I'm with Bernie on the subject of billionaires, but Bloomberg is no Tom Steyer. Dismissing his run would be an error. He's in it to win it and while I don't see him gaining too much traction, I do see him shaking up the center and reshuffling the deck. We shall see.

Often, we don't always apply the correct terms to an agenda that's deliberately aligned against us, free citizens in the United States.

Its important to recognize these terms, from time to time, to realize exactly what IS at stake.

The #guncontrol agenda intends to Subjugate us
Subjugatjon, in the 21st Century, is an action taken solely by those who believe they are entitled to time, money and rights of individuals that live under their societal banner

Governments, Corporations and Entities have all blurred the lines between one another for this goal
The idea of bringing society at large in line with ideas that deliberately strip us of our Liberty and Individuality continues to be one of those ideas that keeps me motivated to stand against its fruition by whatever means are necessary and available, realistically speaking

A tour de force from ⁦@GerryConnolly⁩ about Virginia’s transformation from deep red to true blue during ⁦@VaDemocracy⁩ meeting. ⁦@FairfaxDems⁩ ⁦@DranesvilleDems
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems Meeting was in #Dranesville.

Connolly: "In 1980s, Dranesville was seen out of reach and the only time @TheDemocrats won was when it was a three-way race. In 2007, @JohnFoustVA was first to win one-on-one. He won't be the last. Things have changed."
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems @TheDemocrats @johnfoustva In 1995, Connolly first ran for #Fairfax, VA, Board of Supervisors, it was 6 R and 4 D. Connolly made it 5-5 and sound it was majority D and we've never looked back. 2019 made it 9-1. @FCPS School Board is 12-0.
