Rex Murphy on Canadian gun control

We don’t get a great deal of media commentary in Canada that points out the fact that the federal Liberal’s beloved gun control legislation is ineffective as a crime fighting measure.

This commentary by Rex Murphy , who is also the host of CBC radio’s Sunday afternoon Cross Country Checkup, is a viewpoint we very rarely hear on Canadian TV or radio. Another was Danny Finkelman who was the host of Finkleman’s 45s which ran from 1985 to 2005, a nostalgia music show on CBC radio on Saturday nights. Finkleman used to interlace his musical selections with personal commentary and was not a fan – as I recall – of the Canadian gun legislation. Alas, he is now off the airways.

    Outstanding Commentary! My sentiments exactly; I only wish I could have expressed it so fluently and eloquently. Love your cross country checkup. An extrodinary interviewer with exceptionaly patience for his call in commentors.
