Disappointing news for gun owners in Canada. Great news for criminals who prefer to see millions of dollars vanish into thin air rather than go towards hiring more police.

We had a little fun while trying to light matches with a bullet. Turns out, after we got all our fixturing dialed in, we were able to light multiple matches with a single bullet. A phantom high speed camera helps tell the story. Mythbusters only tried to light one match with a bullet, so we figured we might as well try to push the envelope. I’m sure Jamie and Adam have the budget and time to figure out the perfect curve to stack arrange all the bullets in to light all matches.

The gun of choice for them? The ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 (.22 LR)

Damn I love slow motion footage.

Long Island, NY – A low-budget indie film shooting inside a Long Island convenience store got a dose of real life drama last night when a passerby mistook a robbery scene for the real thing and called the cops. Twenty officers responded to the call, and when they arrived at the scene, they saw a man pointing a gun at another man behind the register. The director was filming from the back of the store with a small high-definition camera and no movie lights, so it was not immediately clear to cops that they were charging into an imaginary holdup with guns drawn.

I would have assumed in the movie business there would have been measures taken to make sure things like this don’t happen. Possibly some signs would have helped?

Ottawa, Canada – Repealing Canada’s long-gun registry would set back the significant gains in suicide prevention since the registry was introduced, emergency doctors and public health organizations said Wednesday.

In an open letter to MPs, 28 medical and health organizations said most firearms deaths in Canada are suicides, and the guns most frequently used are rifles and shotguns. They argued gun-related deaths and suicides in particular have diminished since the advent of the long-gun registry in 1995.

Heh… so since people aren’t buying that the gun registry stops crime, they decided to make it a public health and safety issue.

Well Played…

Interestingly enough, the suicide rate in Canada is almost equal to that of the United States, even though guns in Canada are so heavily controlled (Source).  No telling from that source how many are gun related, but I’m sure the information is out there.  If there really is a correlation between gun possession and suicide as these doctors say, then why isn’t the U.S. suicide rate far higher, seeing as there are way more privately owned guns.

The quality is bad, but it reads:

“100 members of the Open Carry movement with holstered but unloaded weapons met in Walnut Creek”

It’s pretty sad to see that lumped in with SERIOUS issues and incidents that could affect safety in our country.
