    He intially lied and then told the truth. That should be taken into consideration. Canada's gun laws are to restrictive. Confiscate the gun and let him go.

    This article raises several concerns/issues. First, telling a lie or denying the truth when asked about having a weapon seems to go beyond a temporarylapse in judgment. Is lying and being deceitful typical behavior for him? Second, raising money for cancer awareness. It seems a joke that people who do what they enjoy, in this case, riding motorcycles, act as if they are doing a hardship and ask money from people to support their "awareness ride". Why not do work for cancer awareness. Help people who have cancer. or clean up the roadways or something besides what he obviously enjoys doing. Third, if he is expecting a 4-6 month jail sentence, and he has been there since July and he has to be there until January 2013, why not simply plead guilty and stay in jail at Canadian taxpayer expense, and get his well-deserved jail term over. Kudos to the Canadian officers for performing their jobs extremely well. Something about this guy’s behavior must have raised their suspicions.
