My comments were made from the perspective of one with both decades in professional resource management in British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon and N.W.T. AS WELL AS extensive experience here in VANCOUVER, B.C., where my direct family ancestors were among the first pioneers, in the private security field. They were simply FACTUAL and based on what is happening here and were NOT ...racist... or ...bigoted... in ANY respect.
It is SO easy to whine about "racism" today and it so often conceals a motive quite different from the one supposedly concerned. My CLOSEST friend, here, is a Hispanic-Asian, born just after his family immigrated to B.C. from an Asian nation; we just had lunch at our favourite Chinese restaurant yesterday.
I did not even come close to mentioning the specious term, "white" and my comments were based on a concern for the loss of the traditional freedoms we have enjoyed in the British Commonwealth and the U.S.A., ALL of which are under severe attack at present by both external and internal forces.....leading to societies more akin to those we saved freedom from 65 years ago. NOW, I am not going to pursue this, further, BUT, I WILL NOT be attacked by ANYONE on such a false and self-pitying basis, get it?
The comment about the rifle is based on shooting for over 50 years, owing about 150 guns during much of that time and actually using a gun for an employment tool. I also managed a retail gun store and do much of my own "gunsmithing" at home.
I HAD an AR-7 in the early '70s, actually USED it in the B.C. north and it WAS JUNK and totally unsuited for so called "survival" purposes. This item would be exactly the same and one reason is the difference in co-efficient of friction between the metals used in it's construction.
Anyway, that is my point and I will drop further comments concerning the very troublesome shootings here in B.C., IF, I am not subjected to further inchoate, untrue and offensive remarks.
