A Canadian news commentator has a warning for his American friends: Now that the United States has begun gun registration, get ready for gun confiscation.
Brian Lilley, the Sun News host of Byline, traded hyperbole for history to make his case. But he didn’t use Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China as examples, as one would expect.
He used the more-recent history of freedom-loving Canada — his own country, where registration quickly led to confiscation.
He predicted the same for us, despite statistics showing that as gun ownership rises, gun violence drops.
“It’s not about the guns,” he said. “It’s about the control.”
Watch the commentary from Sun News.
