@ehBeth,
Such stats has nothing to do with guns, it has to do with population density.
34,108,752 VS. 311,591,917

I would be much more interested in crime/pop. density.

Sorry, nice try.

@Val Killmore,
Law abiding people with guns and no training are just as dangerous as criminals. We don't have the bomb either. next.

There was a shooting in the food court of a mall here last weekend, which is not the subject here. A few days ago, the police announced that people could pick up the goods they had left behind if they showed up with their receipts and identification. Oh yeah? So, some clown opens fire near you; do you, A. hit the floor and low crawl the hell out of there, or, do you, B. retrieve all of your receipts from your shopping bags, then hit the floor and low crawl the hell out of there? Am i missing something here?
IF u missed him,
then maybe u need more time
in your local gunnery range.

I had more faith in u.

I suppose most people can pull up their credit card transactions to provide a receipt but it seems that being able to describe the bag and its contents would be enough.

I'm thinking maybe Canada doesn't have a lot of experience with public shootings so I'm willing to cut them some slack. American malls probably have a public shooting lost and found.
We need MORE of those.

Maybe the Police are being very smart here.
The policy they announce doesn't have to be the policy they follow.

Maybe announcing that you need ID and receipts to get your stuff is what it takes to keep opportunistic thieves away.
People picking up stuff they legitimately own will likely go anyway and make their case.
Please explain, Max; WHAT is "their case" ???

maybe it's a local thing, but cashiers automatically hand you the receipts here to put in your wallet/purse/pocket. You can tell them to put it in the shopping bag, but it's not normally done. Some cashiers will ask, but the default is to hand you the receipt.


Same custom here. The clerk always hands you your receipt. I always put it into one of the shopping bags right away before taking any bags outside. No idea what the reasoning is there. On the mainland -- in Massachusetts, at least -- I was used to the receipt-in-the-bag routine.

@Lustig Andrei,
Receipt in bag around here, unless it's a credit card deal. They probably figure bag and receipt can go out in the trash together. I hate it when they just stuff a credit card receipt in the bag. Some people actually keep track of their charges.

Oh Jesus, now David gets to make this a thread about guns (or thinks he can). Thanks a lot, Kilmore.

This thread is not about guns, nor any of David's goofy fantasies about shooting people.

@Setanta,
Here, they hand it to you back with your card, or cash out.

I'm a shocker what do I want more paper for? I just leave it there on the counter Shocked ....

Guess I may think twice for future reference.

If this happened in Texas, there would be a lot more dead and wounded.

I'd rather encourage people to carry receipts than guns.
Well, if "some clown opens fire near you,"
will u apply your receipt to convince him to stop?

Its better to HAVE a gun and NOT need it
than it is to NEED a gun and NOT HAVE it.

@OmSigDAVID,
I wasn't there, jackass. Nothing i've written has stated or implied that i was. The shooting is not the subject of the thread. Idiot. Clown.

@ehBeth,
I don't want to digress from the original post, but come on, I hope you don't believe that an increase in ice cream sale increases the crime rate in a year.

And don't take us "Americuns" as trigger happy fellas.
Hopefully nobody needs to use a concealed weapon, but if the need ever arises, in a way where a concealed weapon would prevent **** from hitting the fan, then not having a concealed weapon with you may lead to the most regretful decision in one's life.

High population density cities = low per-capita incomes, high unemployment rate, numerous one parent households.

A perfect environment for criminals to breed.

If there were current studies (2005-2011) of crime rate/ pop. density, I would quote it, but I haven't found any still, so the alternative is common sense.

I tell you this, say as a social experiment, that you ban guns in America, the crime rates will double, because criminals will find some way to get hold of them, and law enforcement still will have access. This will only leave law abiding citizen to be vulnerable to any type of force from the parties that do still possess them.

I mean have you forgotten 9/11, such an occurrence opens up possibilities of what can happen at our door step, in additional to petty crimes. And Canada is no more safe than America regarding international crimes.
