my point is we are very careful who we allow to carry handguns. even to get your firearms licence you have to have a clean criminal record, ( or very insignificant charges) and your spouse needs to sign off on it. 

and it describes a lot of people in the us, or here on cm for that matter, americans have a shoot first ask questions later attitude from what i have seen on here.

Quoting moneysaver6:

Because that TOTALLY describes every single gun owner in the US. <-----Sarcasm

Quoting D.O.E.:

lol we have guns here, long guns are for hunting, if you want a handgun, you need special permits. and thats ok, we don't want crazy people walking around with handguns just shooting people because they are scared....

Quoting LuvmyAiden:

Those moving due to Romney winning would like all of this. I say you can have them...every last one! I personally think Canada is great and all(and beautiful by the way) but I am not a liberal or a socialist and I LOVE my guns so while I would visit I could NEVER live in Canada. But I am totally grateful that you seem willing to take those who don't like it down here!

No. It doesn't even come close to describing a lot of legal gun owners in the US.

lol aww your so sweet!!!! what are taking in college?

Quoting HeathersForever:

If I could save up the money I would so be there! I would try to move to somewhere near Niagara Falls because that is closest to the American Border and my family can come visit or vice versa still, its only like a 3 and half hour drive for them, and honestly it's like a dream country. I love your country! And I hate Romney, but even if Obama wins, your country is still better...I love Canada! I wish I could save up the money to move...maybe when I am done with college. :(

moneysaver, i know there are a lot of responsible gun owners in the states,  but the attitude of a lot of gun owners down there is MUCH different from the attitude of gun owners here. for instance, not many people keep guns in their bedside drawer, or carry their gun to the door when an unexpected visitor knocks. 

go into any post on here about guns, and why people "need" them, and you will see what i mean. ask a canadian why they "need" their gun, your general answer will be "for hunting, DUH!"

i am not trying to pick a fight with you, but the general attitude is vastly different.

no offense, but all of the politician i have seen so far (out of the states) are a bunch of bumbling baffoons. 

Quoting moneysaver6:

There are Republican donkeys?

Quoting D.O.E.:

omg could you imagine if some dumb ass republican moved here and tried to run for office? lmao that would be SO funny! hehehehe

Quoting SilverSterling:

I took an Practice Citizenship test 2yrs ago and passed it.. I had thought about moving there many times before this election. If I couldn't go to Canada I would want to move to England, or my own Island somewhere sunny warm and Not in American waters lol... Again I have been plotting places for years and years.. Now The few Republicans who have threatened to move to Canada That I would like to see go but Canada don't want them lol..

1 mom liked this

I am a fan of laws that actually allow me to protect myself so your gun laws aren't really my bag. And as long as I have carried I have never shot anyone, I am most certainly NOT crazy and fear is not a factor for me as I know I am fully able to protect myself. But again I would love to visit someday(I'll leave my gun at home) and I would really love it if all those who want to live off the system were to join you guys up north.

My plans to go or stay have never been based on the elections which cant be said about some republicans who have threatened to leave if Obama get reelected (Newt is the first of the list to come to mind) I have friends up there who have been offering for years to move me up there and sponsor me for Citizenship.

I don't need to go into a post on Cafemom to know the attitudes of legal gun owners throughout the US.

We are gun owners who have lived in several states and know many, many gun owners.

Keeping a gun in one's bedside doesn't mean one is running around scared ready to shoot first & ask questions later.
