|Hunting Rifles "Long Guns"|
"What would she do next, haul down the ethical shorts of democracy and whip them into submission?"
Two federal politicians from Thunder Bay, Ontario have again been publicly punished for the willful practice of democracy.
The two long-term members of parliament correctly and ethically voted with the Conservative majority government on a controversial government bill C-19 ---contrary to the warnings of a very unhappy and vindictive Ms. Nycole Turmel, acting
The highly-respected, responsible long-term members of parliament supported the federal move to dismantle and scrap the
Third and final reading and vote to kill the registry took place on February 15th, 2012. The vote passed.
Unbelievably, Ms. Turmel vindictively extended the heavy-handed sanctions that she improperly inflicted upon MP's Bruce Heyer (N.D.P. Thunder Bay-Superior North ) and John Rafferty (N.D.P. Thunder Bay-Rainy River) back in November .
The two dignified victims of the unwarranted sanctions logically supported C 19 on the first reading, voting the wishes of their constituents instead of following the NDP "official line".
The long gun registry unfairly targeted sportsmen, home-owners, hunters, and farmers by requiring the registration of all firearms. Failure to register a hunting rifle, shotgun, or target rifle was deemed a criminal act.
In Canada, a license is still required to purchase or possess firearms, fully-automatic weapons are banned, and registration of all handguns is required regardless of purpose.

With --or without the support of the Thunder Bay NDP members, Bill C19 would have passed simply because the current Conservative government holds a comfortable majority and was fulfilling a long-term promise to Canadian voters.
That glaring fact makes Nycole Turmel's punishment appear even more blatantly
At Incoming Bytes we must conclude it's probably a good thing Nycole is not in the leadership race. The momentary titillation of power must have been overwhelming.
In observation in life and in politics, there's nothing quite like running into a solid brick wall, backing up, and stupidly doing it again. Perhaps she should consider resigning; after all.... What would she do next, haul down the ethical shorts of democracy and whip them into submission?
Kind of kinky, isn't it? .. Democracy being stifled by control freaks. What else is new?
Is that incoming I hear?
