NFA WORKING WITH MINISTRY OF PUBLIC SAFETY FOR BETTER FIREARMS LAWS

Canada’s National Firearms Association is pleased to announce that NFA representatives met with senior staff members from the Office of the Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney on September 18 in Ottawa.

In the coming months we will be working with the Minister of Public Safety towards building common sense firearm legislation that respects the rights of law abiding Canadian firearms owners without compromising public safety. NFA President Sheldon Clare stated, “This government seems willing to move forward in making major improvements to Canadian firearm law.  Our bad firearms laws have long needed change and the NFA stands ready to point out areas where improvements are needed.”

Speaking from Ottawa Canada’s National Firearms Executive Vice President Shawn Bevins said “We are optimistic about this Minister’s willingness to recognize that Canada’s National Firearms Association can make a significant contribution toward easing the administrative nightmare and burden that the Firearms Act’s former Bills C-17 and C-68 have placed on law-abiding firearms owners.  The Government has recognized that honest citizens should not be the intended target of poorly written legislation that ultimately does nothing to enhance public safety.”  Bevins further pointed out that “There is a renewed interested in the research around Canadian firearms law that will certainly lead to an improved legal environment for firearms owners.”

Canada’s National Firearms Association is this country’s largest advocacy organization promoting the rights and freedoms of all responsible firearm owners and users.
