The Criminal Codes does not set out its definitions based on the assumption that the item in question was involved in a crime. It defines things for what they are, and despite what some people believes, does not set weapons out to be evil.

If you walk into a liquor store with a piece of wood whittled to look like a Glock and demand money, you will be charged with armed robbery. If you walked in with a Marui M92F and shot the clerk, you would face assault with a weapon charge, even though the airsoft gun is not a weapon without the overt act of assault.

If you walk with a cane but proceeded to beat the hell out of a jerk who cut into line at the ATM, you would be charged with assault with a weapon. I have seen nowhere in the CCC that specifies a cane is a weapon unless its use falls within the provisions of a defined criminal action committed with it.

Start wrapping your heads around it people, it ain't a weapon unless it's used as such. A knife in my pocket is legal and is not considered a weapon. If I pull it out in any manner used to threaten, harm, kill or intimidate, it becomes a weapon. How hard is that to understand?

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
