One of our favorite Tweeters, Kelly Oxford, put a lovely little post on her blog the other day about buying a gun in Canada. Or as she put it, “Do …people realize that in Canada you also have the right to own a gun and ammo?”
Yep, it is true, but according to Ms. Oxford…”You can’t just decide you want to go the the local shop and pick one up like an Xbox game rental.”
1. Pass a gun safety course (crazy people HATE tests! they hate a day long course! SCHOOL SUCKS!!!!)
2. Provide three references of character (crazy people are crazy! BILL IS CRAZY AND WANTS TO BUY A GUN!!! DON’T SIGN IT HAROLD!)
3. Provide information on your love life and financial affairs (have abuse charges against your lady/boy friends?? bankrupt? SORRY GUIDO!!)
***note: when husbands/wives get a license to buy a weapon, the spouse must sign a form indicating they feel safe with him/her buying a weapon.
Now mail this all in, get a license back in the mail (4-6 weeks later) and go and BUY YOUR GUNS AND ALL THE AMMO YOU NEED.
If you don’t like those rules, you are too stupid to own a weapon that can kill people when you move your finger.
Ahhh, Kelly Oxford. If you think that is great, you should read her thoughts about family.
