Apparently the gun registry fiasco was the first major Canadian scandal to play out on the Internet, and Canadian gunnies were more adept at using it to get their message out:
The Internet allowed average Canadians to express their outrage about the cost and complexity of the gun registry, she said.
But it also allowed a minority to hijack the issue, sometimes using mistruths, said Flumian.
â€œParticularly, the anti-fire arms registry lobby was very adept at getting their message out,â€ she said Monday. â€œIt went viral.â€
I see more evidence around these days of Canadian shooters online, so maybe this can be a good vehicle for making some progress.Â Of course, the only Canadian gun blogger I know of is this guy, and he lives in Maryland.
