This happened the year I left calgary. If your in canada, the words “state of emergency” trigger all our new laws and new powers to our police.

We need to learn from this, governments like emergencies so they can make new laws and take more freedoms from the people.October 22, 2014 at 11:36 pm #27590
Just did the math, 100 homes, 500000 rounds seized and destroyed, average 5k rounds per house, but there where probably a few preppers in the community. Ive worked in high river okatoks etc, very tight communities, good people, but lots of drugs the lower you go.
I also watched them install the “emergency prepardness” stuff all over calgary, most of it is at the stampede grounds and the stadium, where they where flooded to the mid bleachers. I have no idea how the casino’s did during this flood, or the one i was working at months prior to the disaster ( oh i laughed hard that they fired me and i ended up moving out of the city)
The ring road around calgary and edmonton are now complete, nice little perimeter…

KOS, I recall this story and as best I know nobody has been held accountable yet nor has there been a full explanation for what they did. Am I correct? I don’t have time right now to watch an hour 11 minutes video, and maybe can get to it later, but just going by your comments above, does the video explain why they destroyed the ammo? Were the owners compensated for the ammo and were all of the guns returned? I can’t comprehend the police getting away with something like that in the US, but then again they seem to be getting away with more and more these days.October 23, 2014 at 2:34 am #27601
As best I remember 99% of the weapons where returned, but all the ammo was “”destroyed””. Home owner compensation for damages to doors etc, couldnt tell you, but i am sure there is, or will be a class action law suit.
I have no idea if the fire arms owners where compensated for the ammo, but i doubt it. last i heard they where still really pissed off.
With the PAL here in canada, they take your picture and address, so its not hard to figure out thats how they knew which houses to go to.
What stumped us as canadians… is how they knew how many fire arms where in the buildings… some buildings where searched multiple times until they found the guns hidey hole. If a safe was not bolted to concrete or a heavy, they took whole gun cabinets. A PAL is not proof that you own fire arms, and it is not recorded what you buy. Officially.
The law here is really fucked up, in the video a gun rights lawyer sights a case he read here in b.c. of a guy who was charged for improper storage, because his 22. LR had a shotgun shell near by. In a separate case a guy was charged with a loaded weapon, when a lost .22 LR round, landed in the open breach of his shotgun, and per the law to the letter, that is a loaded fire arm.
Its recommended that if you are a fire arms owner in canada, that you go above and beyond what the law requires. All ammo locked separately, all weapons locked separately, and store them far apart.
Self defense is not an option here in canada. Tho many would rather be tried by twelve than carried by six, if you where to shoot a home intruder here, they can sue you, and you can be charged in the least with manslaughter, threatening with intent etc etc…

this is why we at some point need to muster up and say no .October 23, 2014 at 4:48 am #27607

KOS, thanks for the update about High River, AB. I have wondered about it. It’s rare for the media to tell how an issue is resolved… or not resolved, especially if the news would make the government not look so “good”.
Personally, I’m starting to fear my own government more than Ebola, zombies, or dumb arses.October 23, 2014 at 4:24 pm #27644
This is why we need to vote in Nov! I know that the Republicans are not always the best but they do believe in the 2nd Amendment.October 23, 2014 at 5:33 pm #27645
This is one very good reason to put a few items in ‘tubes’ away from prying eyes. Far away.
For those who live in places that you have to register your toys for confiscation, sorry but you have only a few options. Either move or make changes to the .gov/rules. Option three, putting things back on the quiet, well in some places that will get you a long jail term or worse. Your choice.
But decide what is the worst option for you.
Not having something you may have a true need for, or having it with some risk.
Every time I look at the laws of former “colonies”, such a Canada and Australia, I realize what happens when you are a subject of the crown. It may be a “democracy”, but that just means whoever has the most cookies wins. Get enough people on your side and you can railroad anything through.October 23, 2014 at 6:06 pm #27646
what do the British and the Soviet Union have in common ?
almost every place they went ……..the people couldnt wait to get rid of them .
Guys , we do need to have our stashes , that is critical . However , we need to stand up and say no ! every time they try it , we need to have a stand off , like at the Bundy Ranch …………every time ! that tells them in no uncertain terms , civil war ……right now !!!! or back off !!!!!
Hindsight is 20/20 , and if the british would have known what a **** storm Lexington / Concorde was going to start , they would have done things differently .October 23, 2014 at 9:01 pm #27649
KOS, that was excellent. Watch the documentary if you get a chance.October 23, 2014 at 9:54 pm #27653
Funny thing is, technically it doesn’t matter who we elect here, and not just because of money influencing the masses. But there are many, many good people fighting the good fight with words in our government, I have a lot of hope for Canada as a nation. But that’s not to say I do not disagree with the idea of placing ICBM in Canada… which they are talking about because of Russia.
This thing that happened yesterday, should never have happened, i am raising my eye brow as to how the hell some reject managed to get that far…
Tolik, Id have to dis agree with you, the people you are standing up to, are not all powerful… but they have all the napalm, know what I mean? Its best to explore all options. People got worked up over the bullet situation, rightly so, but they have bigger toys to worry about than that, rest assured lol.
I am pretty certain USA is headed for martial law and civil war tho, can’t argue with that. The USA has been split apart by race, religion, poverty, political ideology etc… It really Doesn’t look good, and it will spill across into Canada, what happens next is any ones guess.

I hear ya , but the military will also be divided , some will not obey the orders . I have had the privilege of knowing a few SF’s , they all told me that they will honor their oath to the constitution , and if push comes to shove , will do what they are trained for ……….which is to train guerillas, here at home .October 24, 2014 at 6:19 am #27667
We will see what happens I suppose.
