    And the thing is, the red tape could be specifically used to protect the property ownership of the legitimate gun owner, but the burden of proof would likely fall on the individual to prove that they are indeed the rightful owner of the gun. During a natural disaster the likelihood of losing your proof exponentially increases, as people make rush judgments as to where to store things, whether to store things, forget entirely, or lose it during the disaster itself.

    In the US, I believe we could end our expensive Wars on Crime, Drugs, and Terror, merely by faithfully executing our own Second Amendment.

    Yep. What if they decide you need to have a birth certificate and not just a driver's license? Or maybe 3 forms of ID? Anything like that would hamper your ability to get what is rightfully yours back.

    The fire arm would be safe on my person.

My question to you is if say your house was damaged and flooded, torn apart, burned, etc. by a natural disaster and have no safe place to store them would you surrender your firearms voluntarily to the police for safe keeping until you could return home and store them safely.
    Hell no! I may need that gun to protect myself against looters or whomever else may come out of the woodwork once the full of the police force is occupied.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    UOTE=Hamster Buddha;1062610627]We really are talking apples to oranges when comparing Canada and the United States. It be like comparing obesity from state to state and country to country. There are just some cultural different that comes into play. The statistics cannot be denied though, and what is most damning is what I didn't put into that. The District of Columbia, has the toughest gun laws in the country, and also the highest murder per capita as well. At some point you have to start drawing a correlation.[/QUOTE] I don't think strict gun laws bring down the violence. I think gun laws would prevent some people from killing, but it leaves other defenseless, and they might be killed by someone that obtains a fire arm illegally.

    The experience of New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina should be a good example of what not to do in regards to your guns. My experience has been that you should become very good at dismantling and hiding your tools for swift access at a later time.

    No. Why would anyone do that?
