"... is restrained by no rule human or divine."

I'm sure most of you have heard of the Liberals wanting to ban all handguns in Canada. If you haven't, please open your eyes', pull your fingers out of your ears and step out of your parents dark basement. Anyhoo Paul Martin and the rest of the "Liberals" are losing the war in Toronto on gun violence and are sure that the way to remidy it is to ban all handguns. Now I'm sure that all these crimes are being committed by people with legally registered handguns so this plan makes perfect sense. Its much easier than changing the law so that there are tougher penalties for having an illegal gun or taking some other steps to stop illegal handguns from entering the country. All these people went through the time and expense to register their handguns with the government so they would be really easy to find to take their guns away. But surely the government can't just take them away... or can they. This article points out that "'Thou shalt not steal,' has no legal force upon the sovereign body." and the government is restrained by no rule human or divine when it comes to taking away your property. We can thank the Mulroney government for that one. It can be pretty much summed up by the old guy working at Wholesale Outfitters.

Welcome to the Peoples Republic of Canada.

I'd hate to be the guy that has to take everyone's guns away from them.
