I swear to God, if you’ve never felt the government’s jackboots on your neck, it’s because you’ve never stood up for yourself.
Never give an inch, Joe. Never.

[Via email. Mike also informed me:
Looks like things are heating up in Canada with a gun prohibition that covers every ar-15 model they could think of. This will also include 12 gauge shotguns. Why, you ask? Because barrel lengths are important to determine if a firearm is to be considered Non-restricted, Restricted, or Prohibited, according to the law. This new set of regulations prohibits any firearm with a bore diameter of over 20mm, which is 0.787″. As a 12 gauge bore can range from 18.5mm (0.728″) to 20.3mm (0.799″), that can cover a lot of shotguns. Worse, is that if your shotguns have screw-in chokes, those chokes cannot be considered part of the barrel when measuring firearm barrels for importation purposes; and since you must cut the bore to a larger internal diameter to have the threads with which to screw in the threads in the first place, you would be unable to import it; and if you already own such a shotgun, you will then be possession of a prohibited weapon. Imagine if your 28″ barrelled over/under has now been deemed a machinegun, by government decree.
Why aren’t these politicians being tarred and feathered?—Joe]
