Notice how a one or two line reply is enough to send you into a frenzied, illogical response?
*That's* all the information anybody needs to know about you. You'd be doing everyone a favour by using one of those guns on yourself.

I saw his stuff and it really is excellent work. He appears to be an all around woodworker.
But, that leads me to question who is *really* posting the gun rhetoric, him or someone else impersonating him?

It's not just High River - the same thing happened in Slave Lake when 1/4 o f our town burned down.
When our town burned, the long gun registry was still in effect - my guns ( in a locker under a bed) were untouched. Other people had safes torched ope n.
The registry had been rescinded with the promise that long gun records were "poison fruit" when High River happened.
Personally, I would feel better if the RCMP had simply patrolled for looter s rather than becoming looters. I would figure those readers in the US woul d have been all over "illegal search and siezure". FWIW, the two weeks we w ere gone were spent in our holiday trailer at a campground in Westlock, Alb erta - our house unlocked the entire time.

When our town burned, one of the major problems was ammunition. It may be secured from human malefactors but when everything burns at hundreds if not thousands of degrees, the danger to firefighters is a BIG problem.     twitch,     jo4hn

Bullets and power are small stuff.
Consider 500 gallon propane bottles or the 30 / 60 gallons on the house...
Consider the wool rug - it gives off cyanide gas. Plastics vaporize into dangerous chemicals and then deposit in lungs.
Far more to consider.

Were the fire arms returned? As far as we can prove, yes. but many question s remain unanswered. Houses left intact are easily explained. Houses destro yed - totally or partially - are still an unknown entity - not to mention " your stuff goes missing without your permission". Does it really matter if the thief is wearing a uniform or not?
If the ammunition is in a house that is burning, the danger is minimal as l ong as the round isn't chambered (well over 10 years on our local FD). The brass casing with split long before any projectiles become a concern. If th e house is fully involved, what are you going to save?
The story we got for confiscation was the "looters stealing guns" malarkey. .. After the furball in Slave Lake, I am worried as to why they felt repeat ing the exercise in High River was a wise move.
