    While this and every other death is a tragedy, it is also the exception to the rule. The fact is we have the lowest overall and violent crime rates in Canada since 1972. Crime peaked in 1992 and has been dropping ever since. Stats Can says that since 1998 alone crime has dropped 24% and crime severity by 26%. So we are the safest in Canada that we have been for four decades. Violent crime accounts for 21% of all crime and only 2% of violent crime involves a firearm. Sticks and bricks, knives and bottles are more than 10 time more likely to be used. Of the guns that are used, 70% are unregistered and were brought into Canada by the gangs that are using them. Of the 30% that were registered, 95% were stolen. Policing remains the 14th most dangerous job category in Canada, right behind Janitors and Maintenance Workers. Loggers are more than 10 times more likely to die on the job than the police and the vast majority of police fatalities are car accidents. So yes this is a horrible tragedy. Nobody would argue that. But let us not allow the socialists and statists and other special interest groups hijack this isolated event and fear monger Newfoundlanders into resigning what is left of our liberty.
