(Pamela Cosel, Headline USA) Guns and COVID-19 both just keep bothering Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has again tested positive with coronavirus, according to a post he wrote on Twitter.
And two days ago, Trudeau managed to insult gun owners everywhere when he declared that “guns should not be used for self-defense.” The PM assured audiences who listened to “Pod Save America” that they think differently in Canada about guns, reported National File.
“We have a culture where the difference is: Guns can be used for hunting or for sport shooting in Canada – and there are lots of gun owners, and they’re mostly law-respecting and law-abiding – but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada,” Trudeau said. “That’s not a right you have in the constitution or anywhere else.”
Trudeau didn’t elaborate on how he can be certain Canadian criminals are out to bag their limits with their guns, but apparently thinks they will obey Canadian gun laws. Or for safety, perhaps Trudeau is planning to have criminals wear animal costumes to make it legal for victims to legally defend themselves.
Lawmakers in Canada’s House of Commons are still wrangling over the decision to accept Trudeau’s proposal of having a national freeze on the sale, purchase, importation and transfer of handguns in Canada, according to National Life.
As for his second bout of COVID, Trudeau recently met in person with President Joe Biden and a slew of other leaders in Los Angeles at the Summit of the Americas, where he posed for a photo with the aged, and COVID-susceptible Biden. Trudeau also met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, no spring chicken herself.
Yet statistics show that Canada has one of the globe’s highest rates of vaccinations with more than 85 million vaccinations administered.
Never one to pass up an opportunity to push the vaccines, Trudeau tweeted that “I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots.”
One follower posted on Trudeau’s account what many perhaps were thinking.
“Trudeau is facing caucus outrage upon his return from a globetrotting trip – and instead of dealing with it like a man, he pretends he has COVID again.”
Contradicting Canada’s safety rules about COVID-19 testing, however, the country suspended its random tests last week of passengers at all its airports due to the long lines and wait times, causing planes to be delayed and long security check lines, according to Reuters.
