Mohawks blast Quebec premier for false, ‘dangerous’ claims that Kahnawake protesters are armed with AK-47s

MONTREAL — Quebec Premier Francois Legault says the presence of dangerous assault rifles in Kahnawake is a reason for caution in enforcing an injunction to end a rail blockade in the Mohawk community.

Legault told reporters in Quebec City the government has information from what he called “good sources” that there are AK-47s in Kahnawake.

He says Warriors on the reserve are armed, and the situation is very delicate.

The premier says he will leave it to the provincial police to develop a strategy to officially serve the injunction issued Tuesday to people at the blockade.

Legault says he is disclosing the information because he wants the public to understand why provincial police have not yet moved in. He says he does not want to have it on his conscience that police officers were injured in an intervention.

In response, the Kahnawake Longhouse issued a statement calling Legault’s comments dangerous and inflammatory. “These accusations are absolutely and totally false,” the statement read, declaring that the land defenders at the site of the rail blockade were unarmed.

The rail blockade on the Kahnawake Mohawk territory south of Montreal was reinforced with concrete barriers and loads of rock earlier Wednesday.

What a mess. Let us hope all parties involved find a path to speedy resolution of this standoff before it gets any uglier.

  1. It is a well known fact that a lot of smuggling of every type goes through Kahnawake, amongst other places where the border is porous. It would certainly be easy to get the guns across the border from the USA, if that is their source, since a lot of illegal goods also transit through the same. I don’t think the Premier of Quebec would make such a statement if he not have the Intelligence reports to back that up.

    On another note, the The Kahnawake Mohawk Peace Keepers which is their Police force on Reserve, said today they wouldn’t be enforcing any legal injunctions issued by the courts. So much for the rule of law.

    • ” I don’t think the Premier of Quebec would make such a statement if he not have the Intelligence reports to back that up.”

      Politicians never lie do they… are these AK-47’s ready within 45 minutes of an order to use them?

      • In the 1990 Oka Crisis the Mohawk Warriors all had AKs and SKSs.

        No reason to think there are no weapons now on the reserves.

    • AKs were once legal in Canada, and many remain (either grandfathered or not). SKS’ are perfectly legal in Canada, and many are outfitted to look like an AK.

    • “It would certainly be easy to get the guns across the border from the USA, if that is their source”

      It’s unlikely they would be getting AKs from the US.

      • Perhaps…they could be going the other way too. There is a lot of senior organized crime going on there on both sides of the border, (St Lawerence River divides the Reserve and Mohawks on US Reservation side. So with the organized crime presence in Montreal and those who work the docks (Mohawks, Hells Angles etc) they could be coming from anywhere in the world through the ports. There is no doubt that at the OKA crisis back in the 90’s, they had AK47’s, so hopefully puts to rest the idea that they didn’t. These are the people shutting down Canada with the illegal rail blockades the last 3 weeks and causing mayhem to the economy.

        Here are a few pics from the OKA situation in the link below. I’m not an expert on guns, but some look like AK’s, and it was heavily reported they did have them. Just do a google search.

      • People have been coming through the US southern border undetected for years (though that gap is narrowing) from Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Who would say that a truck loaded with weapons could not gross those same gaps ? There are plenty of “unfriendly foreign powers” who could use diplomatic status to bring weapons shipments into Mexico under diplomatic cover.

        Remember the British lady constable gunned down by a machine gun fired from the Libyan Embassy in 1984 ? Ten other people outside were wounded.

      • “It’s unlikely they would be getting AKs from the US.”

        Yeah, Eric Holder is no longer Attorney General in the US, so no more Fast And Furious government gun running.

    • In the U.S. the true believers are not dissuaded from being dangerous. The Propaganda Ministry Lionizes them as they resist the Capitalist Enterprises. Once Bernie takes over all means of production they will be dealt with. Quietly and forcefully. The Communists have no patience for protesters. Armed, unarmed makes no difference. Now you see them, now you don’t and they are never seen again.

  2. Trudeau’s government is being tested no doubt.

    We will find out if Trudeau’s governance is just a high school popularity contest or it is run by someone who understands (like Abraham Lincoln did in 1861) that difficult choices must be made, and made firmly, for the future of a nation and its People.

    I’m guessing pretty boy Trudeau, sadly, is the former.

    • Trudeau would be well advised to review the history of US President George Washington’s test during the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. It was a key early test of US Federal Authority.
      President Washington passed that test. The US likely would have floundered and then failed and reverted to a subservient colony in 1814 under British assault had a firm Federal response been lacking.

    • Hi Joel,

      Justin Trudeau and his inner circle are covertly supporting this chaos. Trudeau was elected because $600 million of foreign money, most from US-based Tides Foundation, was spent bribing radical green groups and influencing tight election races across Canada. Within Trudeau’s inner circle are former executives of the most radical green extremist groups in Canada, including the Tides Foundation.

      Following is my article that the Canadian press, “bought” by Trudeau with another $600 million of Canadian taxpayers’ money, refused to publish – the only article I’ve ever written that the Canadian print media would not publish. That paper has since ”shadow-banned” me from posting comments on their website – they don’t want it widely known that they’ve been so compromised.

      Trudeau’s plan is to drive Canada into poverty and dictatorship, much like Venezuela and Zimbabwe, and live like a king atop a ruined state. This the same plan that the Dems have for the USA, which they have openly admitted after years of covert activity – the Green New Deal is a pathway to poverty and dictatorship.

      The same plan is being implemented to force Australia, Europe etc into poverty, socialism and total government control of the economy and everyone in it – it is an international Marxist conspiracy that uses the false “climate change” scam as the smokescreen for an overthrow of democracy and the end of personal freedom. It is treason.

      {Excerpt]

      A highly credible gentleman wrote me as follows, concerning his recent conversation with an Ottawa insider.

      The insider, he said, had been working on an advisory group to the Trudeau government. The group was not formed to discuss policy for the 5 year horizon that governments are usually interested in but to develop policies for the further future, 20 to 40 years out. The implication was that the group had concluded that the present economic model was flawed and had to be replaced. “Unregulated consumerism was unsustainable and people would have to learn to make do with less. The government would have to have more control over people to enforce their austerity and the wealth of developed nations would have to be redistributed to help undeveloped nations.”

      “THE RADICAL GREEN ROAD TO VENEZUELA – POVERTY, MISERY AND DICTATORSHIP”

      Regards, Allan

  3. Maybe they are real AK’s but off the top of my head I know of three guns that are readily available in Canada and could be easily mistaken for an AK by someone who knows little about firearms. The Chinese Type 8, the CZ 858 and the SKS. There are even numerous aftermarket accessories that are made to make them look even more like an AK.

  4. Mr. Trudeau, who I have always thought to be a dilettante, seems to be ducking his duties as prime minister. I would be surprised if he does any serious study of the issues he is paid to address. Educationally he has a bachelor’s in literature and a bachelor’s in education. He’s never taken a second derivative or tested a null hypothesis in his life. A substitute teacher? Not even a regular teacher? Come on.

    Mr. Trudeau has always been someone of great privilege, and the one that has most benefited him, and that paradoxically now handicaps him, is that he could always get people to like him. He is handsome, pleasant mannered and intelligent (although not as gifted as his brilliant father). You need a certain amount of conflict and sorrow in your life to make you fully human, and I don’t think he’s had his required daily dosage in quite a while.

    I’ll bet Jody Wilson-Raybould took him by surprise. That woman turned out to have a little more barbed wire in her than Justin was used to in anyone he had ever met, and he didn’t know what to do about her. Imagine having to send Michael Wernick to pressure her into obedience, being unable to do it himself. That suggests a man who has little appetite for anything unpleasant, and that’ is a handicap in a leader and a functioning adult.

    • I’m pretty sure it’s worse than that, Ian. He is a communist, like his father, and is working to actively destroy Canada’s economy, which is the first step in the conversion to a fully socialist/communist state.

  5. Accusation?

    Communists shooting people is not an accusation, i’t observation. In a multicultural society we need to embrace all people with all cultures. Ones who like to kill others ‘for disobedience’ cannot be discriminated, it would be very hateful.

    Quote: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun – guy on current Chinese paper currency.

    But remember, you can never kill communists, because they breed very bad and are on a list of endangered species.

  6. I have little sympathy for anti-pipeline fanatics, but this sounds like the usual anti-gunner gibberish. AK-47 is a very specific model of firearm, not just any warlike-looking rifle.

    • I have little sympathy for typical “on-the-take” Quebec politicians, but in this case the Premier is probably correct.

      The native bands near the border have been major smugglers of cigarettes etc. for many decades. The self-styled “warriors” have bragged in the past that they are heavily armed. Basically they are armed thugs who dominate their reserves and act outside the law.

      While the Premier might have more correctly said “assault rifles” rather than AK-47’s, these “Kalashnikov’s” are the cheapest , simplest and most popular of fully automatic weapons.

      (wiki)
      As of 2004, “Of the estimated 500 million firearms worldwide, approximately 100 million belong to the Kalashnikov family, three-quarters of which are AK-47s”.
      – Killicoat, Phillip (April 2007). “Weaponomics: The Global Market for Assault Rifles” (PDF). World Bank Policy Research Working Paper 4202 (Post-Conflict Transitions Working Paper No. 10). Oxford University. p. 3.

      • My only quibble is that “assault rifle” is a term without a good definition, and is typically used by anti-gun advocates here in the States. Given that the Kalashnikov is so prevalent, as you pointed out, and the AK-47 variant is perhaps the most widely available, and is certainly the most familiar to the masses (even if in name only), I’d say it makes sense to use it as shorthand.

        rip

        • Simple definition: An assault rifle is a compact self loading selective fire rifle that is fed by a box magazine.

          Self loading is the rifle mechanically loads and chambers a new cartridge, and cocks the firing mechanism.

          Selective fire is the capability to fire fully automatic, (multiple rounds from one trigger pull) or semiautomatic (one shot per trigger pull) as selected by the operator.

          • “Simple definition: An assault rifle is a compact self loading selective fire rifle that is fed by a box magazine.”

            That’s a pretty good definition, except maybe for the “box magazine” requirement. But is there actually an official definition?

            In any case, the Quebec Premier probably has no knowledge of or interest in such distinctions. Just a few months ago he publicly told the Governor of California that “of course all French-Canadians are Catholics”. He probably has no more knowledge of what “French-Canadian” means either (he WAS speaking in English, and maybe somebody should tell him to stop).

            What’s more important is that he’s a gutless blow-hard who recklessly shot his mouth off about enforcing the law and is now clinging to a feeble pretext for doing nothing while a handful of thugs hold his province to ransom.

            Why doesn’t he know exactly what guns they have, since it’s been mandatory for a year now in Quebec to register all firearms? If it’s known there are unregistered firearms on a reservation, he should long ago have sent his troops in to confiscate them and fine the offenders.

          • I think I nailed the definition with one “old guy” memory lapse in that it should include “fires an intermediate cartridge”. In the U.S. military thinking that I believe was eventually meant to exclude the 30 caliber and greater cartridges.

            The Armalite AR-10 in 7.62 Nato (7.62×51) was designed by Eugene Stoner for the competition to replace the M-14 as the U.S. main infantry rifle. It was scaled down to fire the current 5.56×45 when the US suddenly changed it’s mind, (ticking off Europe mightily) and wanted a smaller cartridge.

            Personally I’d label rifles that fire 30+ calibre cartridges in semi auto only, M1 Garand, FN-FAL, Galil ARM, to name a few as “battle rifles” and not “assault rifles” as for the vast majority of people including military intake recruits, controlling them in full auto fire is darned near impossible. “Spray and pray” is even more useless when everything after the second shot is aimed at sky.

            In the real world though the definition of what an “assault rifle” is depends on your political aims. If you favour the “Second Amendment” intent the definition I gave is near spot on. If you believe Government should have sole access to ANY firearm …. your definition probably is “anything that goes boom”

            Look at the U.K. for example of where this is going. A company just opened sale of kitchen knives that have a “blunt tip”. Supposedly “stab proofing” them.

          • “Simple definition: An assault rifle is a compact self loading selective fire rifle that is fed by a box magazine.”

            Maybe add, “that uses medium-power ammunition.” High-power ammo would make the gun too heavy and/or too uncontrollable on auto fire.

          • If you look just above where your post on that subject came to rest Roger, you’ll see I added that part of the definition within an hour of the first post on it.

      • It is more likely to be semi-auto versions of the AK or AR15’s that can be bought in the U.S. Lots of import versions exist there, as well as in-U.S manufacturers. Lots less risk involved compared to trying to access fully auto versions on both sides of the border.

        Decades ago “high end” copies of the AK design … Valmets out of Finland, Galil’s out of Israel were sold in Canada in their semi-auto configuration before they were put on the restricted weapon list. Chambered in both the Soviet 7.62×39, and the Nato 7.62×51.

    • To the mass media and politicians, all guns are AK 47’s. The last real AK 47’s were made in 1959, but don’t let facts get in the way of a media story!!

    • I’ve always loved the wood stock on the AK and SKS. The bayonet is a plus. Its really funny that they pick on Avtomat Kalashnikova. No ARs in Canadia?

  7. Help please:
    What is the name and title of the former Tides Foundation executive who is now employed in Trudeau’s inner circle?

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/02/25/mining-company-withdraws-from-20b-oil-sands-project-citing-trudeaus-environmental-policies/#comment-2925294

    The cancellation of the Teck project and the rail blockades are not accidents – this is the plan of Trudeau’s Marxist handlers to destroy Canada, much like Venezuela and Zimbabwe were destroyed. This is the standard way that Marxists take over a country – destroy the economy and then ride in to the rescue, only it make it much worse. Trudeau and his handlers are traitors to Canada – they belong in jail.

    Most of the demonstrators, including many natives, were bribed to oppose the pipeline. More than $600 million of foreign money has been spent by foreign funders like the Tides Foundation to bribe anti-pipeline groups. Industry and governments have willfully slept and allowed the rights of their shareholders and of all Canadians to be plundered by foreign-paid extremists.

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/02/23/keeping-africa-on-the-brink-of-starvation/#comment-2923762

    Deliberate destruction of the economy is the leftists’ path to a Marxist dictatorship. Ruin the economy and then tell the sheep you will be their savior – it has worked across Africa and South America – note Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

    It is now working in Europe and also in Canada under Trudeau and his Marxist cabal.
    On Sunday 23Feb2020 the $20 billion Teck oilsands project was shelved, thanks to Trudeau’s deliberate inaction and the terrorism of a handful of foreign-paid activists.

    Trudeau was delaying his decision because THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR ECONOMY IS PART OF HIS PLAN.

    HOW CANADA ENDED UP WITH JUSTIN TRUDEAU
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/03/how_canada_ended_up_with_justin_trudeau.html
    [excerpt]

    In 2017, the National Post reported that TRUDEAU GOT ELECTED AFTER A MASSIVE INFLUX OF ILLEGAL FOREIGN FUNDS, MOSTLY FROM THE U.S.-BASED LEFT-WING TIDES FOUNDATION, writing:

    Foreign money funnelled towards Canadian political advocacy groups affected the outcome of the 2015 federal election, according to a document filed last week with Elections Canada and obtained in part by the Calgary Herald.

    The 36-page report entitled: Elections Canada Complaint Regarding Foreign Influence in the 2015 Canadian Election, alleges third parties worked with each other, which may have bypassed election spending limits – all of which appears to be in contravention of the Canada Elections Act.

    The Canada Elections Act states that “a third party shall not circumvent, or attempt to circumvent, a limit set out … in any manner, including by splitting itself into two or more third parties for the purpose of circumventing the limit or acting in collusion with another third party so that their combined election advertising expenses exceed the limit.”

    “Electoral outcomes were influenced,” alleges the report.

    Well, they certainly were. And the scope of this has brought some bitter consequences to Canada. Trudeau, like the leftists in the U.S., has resisted all efforts at electoral reform, despite campaigning on that platform. Obviously, it’s a corrupt system that has been good for him. There isn’t much we Americans can do about it in Canada, but it highlights two points here: 1) that the Russians and their supposed meddling does not shine a candle to the other kinds of meddling that can be taking place and 2) that electoral reforms, to ensure the integrity of elections, make for one of the most important missions left to be finished by the Trump administration. Lefties, once in power, will never undertake this mission; the system as it is is too good for them.

    Canada’s disaster in its prime minister’s office shows just how bad it can be.

    Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Allegations US Environmentalists May Have Secretly Taken Russian Cash

    • No, it’s not Russian but in fact US money that’s been funding the eco radicals and their assorted Indian fellow travellers. From the Tides Foundation, to be precise – which in turn is a front for outfits like the Packard and Rockefeller foundations.

      The reality of this has been documented by people like investigative journalist Vivian Krause, published in the National Post and been presented to Parliament in sworn testimony.

      In fact, Tides coordinated a concerted “anybody but (Conservative) Harper” campaign during the 2015 federal election, which was shown to have helped Trudeau to a number of seats that gave him his majority.

      Why, you might ask? Because it is the US interest to keep Canadian oil landlocked – that way it commends a serious ($25-30/barrel) discount because it’s only outlet are US refineries/ports.

      Bottom line: next time our friends south of the border get there family jewels in a knot over Russian intervention, look no further. You have been doing it to us, your friends north of the border for decades.

      • Don’t blame the US government for Canada’s central government’s failures. It appears to be long past the time to have Canadian legislation against PRIVATE foreign influence in your federal elections. The next conservative government better get it done, we know the libs won’t. They also need to pass legislation to stop a PM from using federal funds to bribe the CBC while they are at it.

        I don’t blame China or Russia for their efforts. Hell, China bought and paid for Bill, and China and Russia had Hillary bought in 2016. We do have laws against that, but just don’t seem to be able to use those laws againts democrats.

        Here’s hopping TRUMP!, in a second term, will bring the full weight of the US DOJ down upon all the deep staters obstructing justice the last 4 years. Hopefully treason will be the charge, no statute of limitations on that.

        • Drake – it’s not US government money that has been used to sabotage Canada – it is US leftists’ private money funneled through the Tides Foundation – but you knew that, didn’t you?

          One must assume that Tides is also spending many millions to sabotage the USA. This is probably illegal and treasonous.

          Time to Trump them!

  9. Undoubtedly there are guns on the reserve. During the last crisis, the demonstrators were armed and visibly displayed their arms. link

    As for the identification of any weapons, I would bet a friendly coffee the Quebec premier can’t tell the difference between an AK-47 and a nail gun.

    • If you look at some of the photos in the link you give you will see that several feature masked mohawk “warriors” holding weapons that if not AK-47s are of a similar design. Whether these are semi- or fully-automatic one cannot tell. But ‘assault-style’ weapons they certainly are – clearly not nail guns. I doubt if these arms have left the reservation since the Oka troubles.

  10. These people are AK47 deniers. But Mr Legault will have to adopt the way the French used to handle such situations when the politicians still had cojones. By bringing in the army.

  11. The AK-47 in any variation, including semi-automatic, is a prohibited weapon in Canada. link

    If the police see an AK-47, they can seize it and arrest the person who has it. No warrant necessary. Right now, having such a thing is best described as ‘real stupid’.

    • Glad I don’t live in Canada with a [snip] for a Prime Minister, a police that won’t do anything except arrest people who dislike Trudeau and no ability to defend oneself against a corrupt government.

      Other than that enjoy your maple syrup, toques and hockey pucks.

    • AK-47’s are also a little expensive for the typical pipeline protesting, live in mom’s basement dirtbags. They usually buy an SKS @ less than 1/2 the price.

      I sold my AK-47 last year for $1,700,and typical prices for “cheap” ones are in the $800 range. In the US, I could buy a much more accurate, much easier to shoot AR15 for $500.

      • That’s interesting, given that the AK-47 was designed as a disposable rifle. link

        The AK-47 has small parts and springs that need to be replaced every few thousand rounds. However, “Every time it is disassembled beyond the field stripping stage, it will take some time for some parts to regain their fit, some parts may tend to shake loose and fall out when firing the weapon. …”

        • Not designed as disposable Bob, but designed to fire reliably in the absolute worst of conditions. Your cut and paste is from someone who’s never needed to fire a weapon from a mud or sand filled pit. And, there are tremendous differences between the stamped receiver ones made in Eastern Europe/ China, and the milled receiver “cadillac”versions like the Israeli Galil ARM, or the Finnish Valmet M78.

        • I agree, which is why I sold it.

          Mine was a stamped receiver pre-ban 1991 Norinco (PRA) side folder. Paid $300 when Clinton got elected. It had less than 300 rounds go through it, because I never had time to shoot it, and by the time I did, it was in too nice condition to shoot, per people at the range.

          They are like a 60’s muscle car… If you use it, you feel the flaws and it will wear out quickly, but people like to look at them in original condition and will pay full sentimental value for one.

    • Yes. This is impossible, because AK47s were banned in the 90s, and everyone knows that a ban makes guns just disappear.

      Perhaps Trudeau should double-secret ban them this time.

      Still, I really couldn’t care less about anti-pipeline nutters causing disruption in Quebec, when Quebec has been opposing pipelines for years. They’re getting what they wanted, good and hard.

  12. Certain Mohawks have deep ties with bikers, with whom tobacco, moonshine and dope are moved from both reserves to cities like Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. If you drive around the one near Belleville you see over 50 dope and cigarette shops, and I am aware of the ability to buy moonshine. Bikers are likely the main conduit for many weapons coming into Ontario and Quebec. So who would be surprised. The Premier is not trying to cause fear, only let people know why caution is required.

  13. I think I have this straight. Trudeau vehemently opposes dangerous weapons in the hands of the common man and then runs away when they’re used by favored, because of their troubled nature, people to support ecoterrorism. Nice.

  14. “Legault told reporters in Quebec City the government has information from what he called “good sources” that there are AK-47s in Kahnawake.

    He says Warriors on the reserve are armed, and the situation is very delicate.”

    That same excuse has been used many times in the past to surround and frequently eradicate nearly defenseless people.
    e.g. “Wounded Knee massacre”;
    “Ruby Ridge Compound”.

    Hoplophobic fear mongering and delusions put the Kahnawake in extreme danger.
    Quebec Premier Francois Legault should be separated from any interaction or control of this situation.

    • He said the reason they arent doing a frontal assault to take down the barricade is BECAUSE they have weapons.

      That he’ll leave the police work to the police and not mandate a specific reckless policy.

      There are weapons on Kahnawake, AK variants and SKSs for sure.
      Heck, a TEC-9, MP-40 and 50 cal machine gun where seized there just a few months ago.

  15. This situation is another example of the insanity of ‘intersectionality’. A minority of individuals in a protected group are being allowed to disenfranchise the majority in the same group simply because they are in a protected group and therefore must be listened too. It is exactly analogous to ‘trans women’ with still attached male parts demanding that born women lesbians must consider having sex with them. And the usual suspects side with the ‘women’ with male genitals. Insane

  16. Two terrorists in Canada given life for planning to derail a passenger train. Though a life sentence in Canada generally only means a few years. Now there is actual video showing demonstrators trying to derail a train and no action taken. The police just sit on their hands.
    Canada is becoming a lawless third world country, thanks Trudeau.

  17. “Let us hope all parties involved find a path to speedy resolution of this standoff before it gets any uglier.”

    Send a tank and government troops. Tell the protesters anyone who pulls out a gun will be obliterated where they stand. This isn’t Waco. We’re talking about essential national infrastructure. Innocent people will be harmed by these illegal blockades and the Canadian government looks as thought hey are beggars. What a joke.

  18. I am no longer concerned.
    Chaos in eastern Canada is just entertainment.
    They voted for this TWICE.
    Confederation is broken,this “crisis” is just exposing the useful idiots and tools.
    How can this be a crisis when the federal government has been encouraging special interests and general lawlessness since 2015?
    This is the same people who gave a convicted murder and terrorist $10.5 million .
    The same people who bend the law for their comrades,as in SNC Lavalin.
    Hell they even fired their own minister of Justice when she stood for rule of law.

    If President Trump were to offer fair market price and guarantee access to markets for Alberta Oil,the majority of Albertans might jump ship immediately.
    Never mind buying Greenland,a deal with Western Canada would get you borderless access to Alaska.
    The last election demonstrated a clear and probably unfixable division in Canadian Voters.
    The No free Lunch Canadians versus the Free Stuff Canadiens.

    Mr Trudeau and comrades owe their Minority Position to our Urbanized Citizens,who seem to have no understanding of where the wealth, that their cities steal,comes from.

    So this collapse of Law and Order with the inability to continue commerce could become a real educational tool.
    However as a Western citizen,I am done with a confederation that blocks inter provincial trade and a Federal Government that treats me as a third class peon.
    WEXIT.
    The Nation of Buffalo.
    That shall buffalo the freeloaders.

  19. “Simple definition: An assault rifle is a compact self loading selective fire rifle that is fed by a box magazine.”

    That’s a pretty good definition, except maybe for the “box magazine” requirement. But is there actually an official definition?

    In any case, the Quebec Premier probably has no knowledge of or interest in such distinctions. Just a few months ago he publicly told the Governor of California that “of course all French-Canadians are Catholics”. He probably has no more knowledge of what “French-Canadian” means either (he WAS speaking in English, and maybe somebody should tell him to stop).

    What’s more important is that he’s a gutless blow-hard who recklessly shot his mouth off about enforcing the law and is now clinging to a feeble pretext for doing nothing while a handful of thugs hold his province to ransom.

    Why doesn’t he know exactly what guns they have, since it’s been mandatory for a year now in Quebec to register all firearms? If it’s known there are unregistered firearms on a reservation, he should long ago have sent his troops in to confiscate them and fine the offenders.

    Funny, this post disappeared instantly upon submission. The Quebec government must have a friend among the censors. try again…

    • “Funny, this post disappeared instantly upon submission. The Quebec government must have a friend among the censors. try again…”

      WUWT has been doing that on and off recently.

  20. Depending on what you are trying to deter, an AK-47 in the hands of a skilled operator, will, if nothing else, focus everyone’s attention.

  21. of course they have automatic weapons. The border reserves are well known conduits for smuggling contraband. We had some of our mouth breathing politicians in the last election promising to allow cities to enact hand gun bans, an utterly useless idea, but the thrust for this comes from gangs shooting up Toronto with an assortment of guns but what no politician will talk about is that the vast majority of these guns are smuggled in through the mohawk border reserves, “sovereign territory” as they say.

    Also not mentioned that these reserves practice ethnic cleansing and have rules in place to keep non-mohawks living there, ethnic and racial purity being the main concern.
    Imagine if any other identifiable group tried to proclaim such a thing
