Polls Are Useless – Criminals Don”t Obey Gun Laws
Poll shows Trudeau’s Liberals would be wiped out west of Quebec
The news that the latest Angus Reid poll would see the Conservatives take 40% of the popular vote to the Liberals 30% is a surprising story, almost as surprising as millennial voters fleeing the Liberals to the Conservatives.
But the big news lies in the regional breakdowns which show a near wipe out for the Liberals west of Quebec.
The Angus Reid Institute poll surveyed 5,423 Canadians between March 6-15, 2018. That is a big poll and that means big regional breakdowns with smaller margins of error, meaning if they are paying attention the big brains at Liberal HQ should be sweating.
Canadians distrustful of social media, believe it’s fake
You can’t trust everything you read online.
That’s what Canadians believe according to a new public opinion poll from Forum Research on the topic of ‘fake news’ on social media.
The poll sampled 1,619 respondents and found 65% of them do not trust social media.
“There is a healthy skepticism about social media, and more than half of Canadians say they would support laws restricting fake news,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research.
“Age is a predominant predictor of social media usage,” Bozinoff added. “Younger respondents are more likely to use Instagram, more likely to say they’ve seen fake news, and more likely to use social media frequently.”
18 Little-Known Gun Facts That Prove That Guns Make Us Safer
#1 Over the past 20 years, gun sales have absolutely exploded, but homicides with firearms are down 39 percent during that time and “other crimes with firearms” are down 69 percent.
#2 A study published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy discovered that nations that have more guns tend to have less crime.
#3 The nine European nations with the lowest rate of gun ownership rate have a combined murder rate that is three times greater than the nine European nation with the highest rate of gun ownership.
#4 Almost every mass shooting that has occurred in the United States since 1950 has taken place in a state with strict gun control laws…
Criminals don’t obey gun laws. Not here, not in Europe. Surprised?
We keep saying this, but the prohibitionists don’t get it — no matter where they’re from!
Every time a new gun control law (or any other law, really) is proposed it’s always predicated on the notion that criminals will magically obey the laws. Pass a law against any act and those who pass the laws present them as a solution to whatever problem they’ve identified.
Gun-free school zones are an excellent example: I don’t see where those laws have impacted any of the murderers who chose to commit their acts inside of a school. The Gun Free School Act of 1994 does not seem to have stopped any of the attacks which have happened in the last 21 years, and may have even emboldened those mass murderers who knew that they’d be handed a resistance-free target area.
Yet gun control laws continue to be passed, and the people who pass them continue to be amazed that the crimes continue.
This is not limited to the United States. The United Kingdom’s Telegraph newspaper, for instance, seems to be very surprised that the recent attacks in Paris were committed with full-auto guns purchased in Belgium — guns which are, in fact, completely illegal in that country. (“Illegal” as in “you can’t have one under any circumstances” – not our kind of “illegal” where we just tax them at ridiculous levels.)Polls Are Useless - Criminals Don"t Obey Gun Laws
