Canada trying to crackdown on weapons may be more than just safety

The northern states that border Canada from Washington to Maine are some of the most sparsely populated areas in the US. They also have far more wild lands from forests and mountains to vast (in today's terms) wild prairies, than most other states. Sparsely populated areas like that are a magnet for individuals who have a harder time adopting to the ever growing population densities farther south and are areas where someone can reasonably live off the grid and off of the surrounding land. In the late 50's, 60's and 70's communal left wing Hippies and the wealthier left leaning Yippies that were moving into the northern states to get away from a system gone awry or, if you could afford larger tracts of land, to be closer to nature and farther away from the rat race. They mostly wanted to be left alone and live peacefully.

The US population has increased by nearly 140 million! just in my 60 years. There are many, like myself, that just aren't built for the crowding that's going on.

But also from the 70's, all the way up to now, another group that was running from a system they thought had gone awry began an exodus to the far northern wildernesses with a much more sinister intent. While they to wanted to be left alone they were more motivated by being able to hide. Their reasons for getting away were more strongly rooted,in their minds, by a federal government that had been slowly, over a couple decades, been forcing a dismantling of some of the truly evil social constructs, ironically, in the far southern states, and doing something about it.

So think about it. For the last 40 years Canada has seen an ever growing presence of right wing extremists/white supremacists with fascist ideologies directly on it's southern border and through natural symbiosis this is spreading across the border to our closest ally, especially in the last 6 years. Does anyone remember the back and forth passport fiasco of the 2000's? I think it's no coincidence that at the same time the Canadian defense ministry issued both an interior and public warning that Canada may need to basically go on alert if another Fat Nixon or Fat Nixon type is elected in the US in 2024 and Trudeau's announcement of a potential crackdown on private weapons ownership. I think both are intertwined. I think Canada's truly and I mean truly, deeply concerned that they may have a Hungarian type single party cristofascist "democracy" spanning their entire southern border that will attempt to threaten their social democratic state from within. I think cracking down an personal weapons is a preventative response to help keep military style weapons and far right influence from spreading across their southern border.

I find it truly frightening that our closest ally in the world may be taking preventative action to PROTECT ITSELF FROM US!

P.S. Mexico better look out too

1. That sounds

Like a reasonable deduction.

Canada, like Australia is a commonwealth country with a form of government so vastly different to the US. We parliamentary democracies can enact dramatic changes relatively quickly, unlike the US.

The features that made the US a hard country to overthrow have become the enemy of reason and keeping up with the times.
