    You can't shut down human behaviour. You can shut down viral transmission.

    You left out GUNS. I will agree with you there.

    If you are afraid of this virus then sequester yourself by all means. Wear a hazmat suit when you go out. Have at it.
    What we really need is the new prohibition act. The new one will be epic. Booze, drugs, salt and DrPepper will be only a start. To really make a difference, our wise leaders will outlaw murder, suicide and lower the highway speed limits to 40km/h. The medical malpractice insurance will be replaced with the firing squads attached to the local healthcare units to drive in the point to all them haughty doctors that killing patients is wrong. YouTube will be directed to censor out all of them "fail" videos, of course. The future looks bright, indeed.

    40 km/h is a step to far for me. I’m ok with a mask in public. Only one thing that really upsets me is people driving at or below the speed limit unless it’s a school zone

    So many places have highway limits of 120, I thought Ford said higher limits where coming...what is he waiting for

    You think legally purchased firearms are a threat to Canadians?

    Do you think that fast food is a threat to Canadians who eat properly?

    You are moving the goalposts. The discussion was to remove things that kill people. I have a suspicion that guns fit in that category. Nova Scotia.

    Fast food is the silent killer and my tax dollars are going to pay for their medical expenses. So you do the math.

    So let's try it again. Do you think legally purchased firearms are a threat to Canadians?

    The firearms themselves are not threat to our safety its the lunatic(s) holding the weapon like the guy in Nova Scotia or Montreal or Washington DC or JFK and his brother or or or.... the list goes on and on endlessly... remember Columbine....

    Now bring back the agencies so the guys and girls still working/hobbling no longer need to hide in the shadows, I want to get back out there too

    If you add the qualifier of "legally purchased" firearms to the equation then adding Canadians who are "responsible eaters" is fair game.

    A legally purchase firearm can fall into the hands of someone else, so any firearm is a threat.

    If fast food is consumed by someone, it cannot "fall into the mouths" of others.

    I answered your question. So, do you think that fast food is a threat to someone who eats responsibly?

    An age old debunked argument. Guns sure as hell facilitate the lunatics' goals. More than bats, knives etc. Guns are very efficient killing machines.

    I'll answer again. The answer is yes. My tax dollars will inevitably be spent for their amounting medical bills as they incur mounting health problems as a result of their dietary choices.

    Legally purchased firearms must be store in a safe or vault or modified room especially for firearms so they for dam sure are not going to just ''fall'' into someones hands. Can you site an example of the last newsworthy crime that was committed with a legally owned firearm please.

    Can you cite an example of someone who has gone to McDonalds twice in their life and needed quadruple bypass surgery at age 30 because of atherosclerotic blockages that the doctor attributed to those two meals?

    No I can't. But I can site scores of examples of people I know personally who throughout their life time made fast food a staple of their dietary choices and who suffered from the aforementioned conditions you mentioned.

    So let's try this once again. Can you site an example of the last newsworthy crime that was committed with a legally owned firearm please. Or even better some instance which you know personally

    Let's shut down all the gas stations too... don't forget about the hardware stores as well.

    Thanks for hypocritically admitting that you are in favour of closing down those murderous fast food chains, but opposed to closing down gas station and hardware stores (both more murderous than your dastardly burgers and fries).

    So you can cite disease and death from poor eating choices.

    I can cite injuries and deaths from guns.

    It sounds like a comparable situation.

    If you want to bring in "responsible" gun owners, I can bring in "responsible" eaters. Once again, they are comparable situations.

    So either ban both because of irresponsible people or ban neither because of responsible people.

    But you cannot say ban fast food because there are some irresponsible eaters and some responsible eaters but don't ban guns because there are some irresponsible owners and some responsible owners. That is irrational.

    Guns stolen in break and enters
    While legal gun owners are being charged less frequently with unsafe storage of a firearm, the number of gun-theft charges has grown.

    But the specific offence of "breaking and entering to steal firearm" was only added to the Criminal Code of Canada in 2008 and Statistics Canada only began tracking charges under this law in 2009.

    As you can see, the rate of these crimes has more than tripled since then, but some degree of ramping up is to be expected, as police services across the country adapt to a new law. And the number of gun thefts edged downward in 2017, with 1,175 incidents last year.

    I know I know, It's CBC left wing media....fake news I know

    We're all educated on the ills of fast food, yet the population has never been more obese than it is now. We're also educated on covid and it's up to each individual to decide how to proceed based on that education. Do you continue to eat burgers and become obese or not? Do you continue to see SPs and engage in close social activities or not? It's your body and your choice. Not someone elses.

    Half the population is spooked (these are the ones easily manipulated and swindled), the other half couldn't care less. Working with the public, it's incredible to see polar opposite reactions from people, every day.


    "...for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself—so like a brother, really—I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate."

    The problem is when folks like the ones today in Trinty BellWoods park do stupid things and only make opening up much harder they deserve to

    1) not be treated in a medical facility if they get Covid and require medical attention
    2) heavily fined
    3) I won't say 3, you will think I'm evil

    Off the top of my head, I can't, just like you couldn't cite an example I gave above.

    Would you be willing to make a bet that a legally purchased firearm was never used by someone other than the owner to kill someone else?

    You still have not addressed my post:

    So you can cite disease and death from poor eating choices.

    I can cite injuries and deaths from guns.

    It sounds like a comparable situation.
