    They'll get there. They have a lower population density, and are less urbanized. But crime rates in big cities like Toronto don't seem that far off from American cities (I visit CBC.ca everyday, I like reading Canadian news sources, I'm weird like that).

      "If" one is free to amend the constitution at whim or because its outdated, then it would take just a short time, before all aspects of such citizen rights, as written in that very constitution, would be changed in the interest of protecting something else.
      You cant protect all people, from all things.

      The 2nd amendment, was a right of free men (convicted criminals were not & are not considered free men) to protect from an oppressive government,(enemies foriegn & domestic) whose intent one day, might be to remove those other rights so protected. Without the 2nd, you have little to no ability of protecting the others. Its much like telling a totally blind man, he still has "can" drive a car.., but how to do that, when just a single yet nessicary ability has been lost.
      You may forget, that the U.S colonies where founded, by men fleeing British oppression of many forms, Britain's attempts to imposs thier rule, taxes, etc on the new territories lead to, among other historical events, the Revolutionary war, the "Declaration of Independence" and the Constitution / Bill of Rights.
      The fact is, that document, no matter how you feel about it, no matter how old, errored, outdated, or inaccurate you may feel it is to todays world, that set of rights, laws & rules actually applies more to what a government can 7 cant do, then it does to the common man under such government.
      It was borne from a lack of such things by men who lived without such things & tempered by those willing to protect them at all cost.
      Once those rights are lost, by historical account, are almost never seen again.

        Maybe not for much longer. Quebec is due for an election soon. If the Parti Qu├ębecois gets elected they will have another referendum on seperation. The first referendumm in 1980 was 60%/40%. Last time in 1995 it was 51% to 49%. This time?????????

              50,000 officers ? For the entire country ? How much is the population in Canada ? Here we hit 300 mill and prolly more now.

              As far as going by population i cant go oh my police dept is better than cincinnati police dept because my city only had 10, 15,000 population. Cincinnati is way way bigger. But is cincinnati not safe ? They have areas like District 1 that are bad. And again the medical examiner stated 90 % or more of the homicides in cincinnati are over drugs. A woman from Indiana went into District 1 and got killed after she tried to taske dope from a dealer. DRUGS DRUGS DRUGS = CRIME, HOMICIDE. She came from a town that aint had a muder in over 10 15 yrs.

              Also a Cincinnati council member was taken over in District 1 at 12am. I want to ask why was he in D1 at 12am ? As for things being safe i think pretty much they are. You have risk of course. But again as i said dope heads killing dope heads.

              In my city i live in till i can move its much larger than where i grew up and was a explorer with. Has more crime. We have a street you dont even wanna be on unless you have to be. Because of the drug dealers. They will walk up to your car and say you wanna buy dope ? You say no man they say bull and pull a gun on the spot. This is why we have CCW. Or pull a knife. Its a gang area. I have been down this street when i had to be but i was carrying to. Heck if it came to it and was bad enough i would even run them over with my vehicle if i had to. I will try not to be a victim. And we dont need to give into the trash bags and give them the upper hand on us. They already have it.

                Canada has 32 million people. America is 9+ times bigger in terms of population. 50,000 police officers is the low end of the estimate I read (the high end being 60,000).

                    I see this thread has really taken off. I haven't been around for a week or so to add any comments, but I should say I agree with everything Black Caesar posted here. It reflects my sentiments exactly.

                        I don't recall that post. Maybe it's because I'm a numbskull.

                              I grew up in Texas. (Houston area, to be exact.) A man had broken into our apartment when I was home alone, I ran into the master bedroom, locked the door, called 911, got the key to the fire safe, retrieved a revolver and loaded it, and told the dispatcher that I was 10, I was armed and knew how to use a pistol, and a man had broken my front door down. The 911 operator had no problem with my being armed, and said that the police were on the way.

                              When the police arrived, they had no problem with me arming myself either.
