Photos have emerged of an underground gun factory which operated in Montreal, Canada to produce high quality copies of the TEC-9 / DC-10 submachine gun for the criminal market. This model of illicit craft produced machine pistol was previously documented having appeared seized in several police operations.
The factory was discovered by accident after a burglar alarm altered police to the warehouse of the company located in LaSalle borough. Vice-president of Perfection Metal, Pierre Larivière, 60 and Jean-Pierre Huot, 59 are facing charges relating to the 2014 find. Employees at the factory were apparently told that they were manufacturing parts for paintball guns.

Norway is set to ban semi-automatic weapons almost seven years after a far right-wing extremist killed 77 people in a bomb and shooting rampage, the deputy leader of parliament’s justice committee said on Thursday.
The July 22 massacre in 2011 “was committed using that type of weapon. We need to get rid of them,” Peter Froelich told broadcaster TV2.
He said a majority of parliamentarians now backed the measure, in line with a proposal by the center-right government, and a vote was scheduled for next week.
From a speech at the Second Amendment Town Hall on Strategy . . .
We are losing the fight for the Second Amendment. We are losing it in the courts. We are losing it in the legislatures. We are losing it in the media, in the schools and with young people.
The approach we have been using to protect the Second Amendment for many years has failed, is failing and will continue to fail. That approach has basically focused on lobbying, elections, voting and using the litigation process without any serious attempt to change the philosophical or ideological bent of the country or to change the ideological trajectory of the country to the left which in the last five years has been accelerating, and without any attempt to change the basic progressive mindset which has dominated American politics for many decades.
The tactics we have used are archaic, dated, spent, don’t work and there has been no attempt to use bold new innovative tactics and unless that changes, we are going to lose this fight.
No thanks…we’re all full up . . .
Taking his cues from every other poser on this topic in Australia, Adelaide ‘artist’ Peter Drew is the latest drone that has taken it upon himself to go and lecture Americans about gun laws:
“Drew — who began his refugee poster campaign in 2015 — has generated awareness around the way Australians treats asylum seekers as well as the traditional owners of Australian land.
But his latest campaign looks beyond the borders of Australia, with the artist planning to travel to the United States to generate discussion around American gun laws. So what is the message?
A hot topic internationally, Drew said America had a “broken system”. His next set of posters display a broken rifle and the words ‘Australia, it works’. Drew said he would travel to Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York in August where he hoped to speak to American people about the issue and how things are done in his home country.
We have more than enough laws, it’s just that no one is complying with or enforcing them . . .
In Ohio, a convicted felon barred from owning a gun could still purchase one after passing a background check – all because dozens of courts have failed to upload some paperwork.
Sound familiar? A similar glitch allowed Devin Kelley, a dishonorably discharged U.S. Air Force veteran, to purchase the gun he used to kill 26 and injure 20 more at a South Texas church last year. In that instance, the military failed to flag Kelley as a person banned from owning a gun.
In Ohio, court officials across the state have behaved similarly, failing to submit names to the country’s gun-purchase background check system, an Enquirer review of records from the Ohio attorney general’s office found.
State law requires courts to update the list of individuals barred from buying firearms at least once a week. But some courts went months or years without an update – without facing any repercussions, according to state audits.
