In this increasingly dangerous world, it’s nice to know Canadians can rest secure in the knowledge that RCMP officers are out there, patrolling our streets, ready on a moment’s notice to break into our homes and steal our property.
In fact, the RCMP recently performed a little break and entry action in
, a town which had been
evacuated due to massive flooding. High River,
It seems some of the town’s gun owners had left their firearms in what police call “unsecure locations,” such as inside their securely locked homes.
Now you might ask, what’s so bad about that? The town is evacuated; the guns are out of sight, behind locked doors. Shouldn’t be a problem, right?
Ha, only a “gun nut” would say that!
As any rational and reasonable person knows that leaving guns in an empty locked house, situated in an empty town, is an invitation to anarchy!
Imagine, for instance, if militant household pests, like termites or carpenter ants, decided to arm themselves with those unguarded weapons.
Just think of what that would do to your extermination bills!
Luckily, however, before anything horrible like that could happen, the RCMP – official motto: “Private property rights? Never heard of ‘em” – forcibly broke into several
homes, where they proceeded to grab guns as if they were donuts. High River
This, of course, was done in the name of preserving what the police like to call “public safety.”
Yes, some bleeding hearts bemoaned the RCMP action as heavy-handed, others even called it an “act of aggression” against gun owners, but if you ask me, we need more of this kind of aggressive, pre-emptive police work.
After all, there are probably millions of locked homes all across the country jam packed with privately owned, so-called “legal” items that, if they ever fell into the wrong hands, i.e. law-abiding citizens, could potentially threaten civilization as we know it.
Indeed, given the seriousness of this locked home issue, perhaps it’s time to create specially trained police squads whose only job will be to ransack arbitrarily selected homes, in order to find any “public safety” threatening dangers.
And believe me, when the government puts its mind to it, it can find lots of things that threaten our public safety.
Indeed, here’s just a preliminary list of things the L.P.S. (Looting Police Squads) would be on the look out for as they root through people’s closets, kitchens and bedrooms:
water (Don’t let the benign appearance of bottled water fool you.
According to environmentalists, water bottles, if left unchecked, could end
human life on earth, leading to our planet being ruled by mutants, super
intelligent robots or perhaps by apes.)

they own government-certified bicycle helmets.)
that in anyway resemble a pit bull.

- Sporting equipment that could also double as weapons, i.e. baseball bats, darts, hockey sticks and, of course, most dangerous of all – dodge balls.
Admittedly, all this might seem like a little bit of an infringement on our Charter guaranteed rights and freedoms, but let’s face it, if the government and the police won’t infringe on our rights to protect us from ourselves, who will?
It’s like I always say … sorry. ..I have to go … somebody’s battering down my front door.
