As 680News reports, a 39-year-old Toronto police officer has been arrested for allegedly buying a prohibited gun barrel over the Internet and illegally importing it into Canada. The gun barrel was discovered as the police officer attempted to re-enter Canada from the USA.
This demonstrates the point that the police and ordinary citizens are not very different from one another. Either can choose to uphold or violate the law, and each should have the option of having a gun for self defense.
Also apparent is the ineffectiveness of gun control laws. This particular police officer was caught importing the illegal rifle barrel, however many other smugglers succeed. Indeed, the truly successful smugglers are the ones that we never hear about in the news. It really is time to take a fresh look at gun control laws, given their track record of abject failure, and serving only to disarm the law abiding citizens.
