More than one individual is wondering why so much time and money has gone
into the arrest of a Dryden gunsmith and his wife, when this individual has
literally served himself up on a platter for the past two years.
The questions, "why now?" and "why with so much hoopla?" seem to be on the
tip of many individuals' tongues - and for good reason.
It's not like Bruce Montague wouldn't have gone quietly and willingly - he
probably would have taken police on a guided tour of his home - so why did
we have to tie up so much money in a multi-taskforce effort that, no doubt,
involved weeks of investigation and thousands of dollars?
One old-timer said he was sure glad that all the crimes and criminal
activity in Northwestern Ontario have been put to bed, since the police
obviously have a great deal of extra time and cash on their hands to be
wasting on law-abiding citizens who don't like what government is doing.
Others might argue that Montague is not 'law-abiding' because he's not
following the new gun laws... but how many of you are there reading this
right now who haven't followed those laws?
How many laws have you broken if it came right down to a surprise search of
your home? What do you have in your gun cabinet? Where have you been surfing
on the Internet? What did you bring back from your last trip out of the
Most people wouldn't even realize how many laws they were breaking.
Others say they know a bad law when they hear it and insist that they have
to do something to impress upon government that they will not surrender
rights and freedoms that bureaucrats decide they don't need anymore. Some
just say they aren't interested in dishing out well over two billion for a
system that will not work.
So now, as Canadian citizens, you can decide if it's time to sanitize your
home - just in case - or see to it that you retain those rights and freedoms
you hold dear.
I suspect most of you have already begun cleaning out your closet.
