A News Commentary by Doug Draper
Posted June 23rd on Niagara At Large
Thanks to new U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Any Screwball Can Carry a Gun into a Movie Theatre, Grocery Store, Shopping Mall – Anywhere They Want!
A Supreme Court in the United States that is largely controlled by Trump and by Facists that Call Themselves Republicans, carrying a gun in public is now just plain dandy anywhere in the United States, including border communities like Niagara Falls and Buffalo, New York.
That means that virtually any angry male – and they are mostly males of the Trump persuation – can run around with guns and if they get angry, then it is up to them what happens next.
The June 23rd Supreme Court rulling comes less that two months after an 18-year-old white supremacist entered a Top’s grocery store in Buffalo and killed and wounded more than 10 people with a military-style assault weapon that he purchased legally – but apparently most Americans couldn’t give a shit because their rights to own these weapons mean more than human lives.
As a Canadian speaking to others on our side of the border, do you want to cross over and take a chance on that?
And why aren’t our federal representatives speaking out and warning us about this?
Why aren’t they looking at closing the Canadian borders to Americans on the grounds that they are okay with carrying guns? They should be given that stastistics in Canada have shown for years now that a majority of the guns used in deadly acts of violence here come from the United States.
It appears that Americans place free and easy gun ownership and use above human live, but why should we?
It’s time to close the border down to gun-totting Americans.

I haven’t been across the border since 9-11 when the US changed their entry laws with the draconian Homeland Security Act. I used to visit/ & shop in Buffalo quite frequently until they changed the border laws..
