The latest gun control statements from the federal minister investigating ways to curb organized crime are nothing more than “political rhetoric designed to install fear in urban Canadians,” says Calgary criminal lawyer Greg Dunn.
“Using language such as an ‘assault-style’ rifle ‘designed to hunt people’ is pure fear mongering. It plays no part in a rational discussion of the tension between the freedom of the individual to own firearms and the public-safety component of the state to control them and where that line should be drawn between the two,” Dunn, principal of Dunn & Associates, tells AdvocateDaily.com.
