Toronto Police Advise Citizens Preemptively Surrender to Thieves to Avoid Being Hurt or Killed

“As car thefts have spiked in Toronto, Canada, local police are prescribing new safety measures so that locals can avoid violent encounters with thieves,” Fox News reported Friday. “One of the recent bits of advice included Toronto Police telling residents of the town of Etobicoke to leave their car key fobs near the door to avoid being attacked in their homes by potential burglars.”

“Car thefts [have’ doubled in recent years,” we are told, and “thieves have begun breaking into houses to steal keys in order to steal cars.”

“They’re breaking into your home to steal your car,” Constable Marco Ricciardi claimed. “They don’t want anything else.”

That’s consistent with the “Just give them what they want” mantra repeated by “Only Ones” and gun prohibitionists here, who never seem able to answer the question, “What if what they want is your life?” We could cite all kinds of examples where victims complied with all orders given by violent predators only to end up helpless to prevent their own executions.

The ever-helpful Toronto Only Ones, passing out “free” doorstops so hapless subjects could “feel” safe, tried to backtrack without really retracting a damn thing, and offered completely useless advice if the object is to actually defend life and property. You can’t park in the garage if you don’t have one, and everyone leaving outside lights on all night seems to contradict “Canada’s green future” goals to cut back on energy use.

So, take the doorstop and let the criminals (freelance and official) rule the night because, as Constable Marco reminds us, “A lot of them that they’re arresting have guns on them. And they’re not toy guns, they’re real guns. They’re loaded.”

So much for all those “commonsense gun safety laws” we’re told are just the ticket to stop “gun violence.”… But Canadians can have guns, too, right?

Well, yes and no. In addition to federal regulations that include a “national freeze” on handguns and a prohibition on firearms capable of repelling multiple assailants breaking into homes to steal car keys, there’s also licensing, “safety training,” prohibited devices, ammunition, and magazine restrictions, storage, selective registration, and other infringements, like “red flag,” “yellow flag” and “expanded license revocation” diktats.

But those aren’t even the ultimate mandated self-defense inhibitors.

“Canada has a much more restrictive approach to gun usage and does not follow the ‘stand-your-ground’ law,” the What the Law Canadianlegal blog notes. “Using lethal force to defend yourself is a very gray area in self-defence law that must be considered on an individual case basis…While it is entirely possible for the accused to clear their name, demonstrating their innocence to the judge requires legal support from knowledgeable and experienced criminal defence lawyers. In cases where there are no witness, unfavourable circumstances, and limited evidence, it can be very challenging for a lone individual to prove they acted in entirely self-defensive methods without having a legal professional by their side.”

So, you’re guilty unless you can prove you’re innocent, exactly the opposite of the way things are supposed to be in the U.S., albeit not so much with the advent of our own “take the guns first, due process later” edicts.

This is what treasonous (undermining “the security of as free State”) home-grown gun-grabbers have in mind for their countrymen, for us to be cowering behind locked doors while they not only can’t protect us but punish us if we protect ourselves against predators traitorous politicians find more profitable to represent and promote.
