The Liberals will try to tell you that the billion dollar Farmer Bob Rifle Registry saves lives.
That's just not true.
Here's the real reason homicide rates in big Canadian cities aren't through the roof.
One had taken a gun blast in the head, others had gaping abdomen wounds, some oozed blood from their chest, and a number had limbs punctured by bullets. As of Saturday, none of the wounded had died but two remained in comas and were in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.From the time Level III Paramedics scoop the victims, stabilise them and race for the ER, until specially trained trauma teams of doctors and nurses split open and repair the damaged bodies, these people get the best medical attention available in the entire world.
There aren't fewer attempted murders in Canada these days... simply more people being saved by skilled medical intervention.
