Hunters are mad about the new big list of guns to be banned by the Liberals – but why should we care if it helps reduce gun violence? And the not so credible Blacklock’s reporter’s story about being evicted from the Press Gallery. Grant LaFleche co-hosts. 

Clarification (Dec 8/22): in this episode, Jesse says that Carey Price initially claimed he was not aware of the 1989 Polytechnique shooting. In fact it was Price’s employer, Groupe CH President France Margaret Bélanger, who spoke on Price’s behalf, saying the athlete was not aware of the shooting.
