NFA calls for UN Marking Regulations to be rescinded not merely deferred (again)

Speaking from Prince George NFA President Sheldon Clare said, “This is now the fifth time that the Canadian Government intends to defer the ill-conceived U.N. marking regulations.  While we are pleased that the Government will not implement this scheme at this time, we are disappointed that Canada has not yet rescinded this agreement, which would obviously place new burdens upon firearms owners and businesses.”

NFA Executive VP Shawn Bevins echoed Clare’s concerns, “Firearms possession and manufacturing in Canada are already exposed to wasteful, expensive, and onerous stipulations and regulations that, according to peer reviewed scientific evidence, have had no impact on Canadian crime rates.  Canada never should have entered into this program of regulation, and while it has not been ratified, that situation could easily change.”

Clare concluded, “Canada’s National Firearms Association calls on the Canadian government to rescind the UN firearms marking regulations so that we are not left with the annual question of whether or not these regulations will be deferred.”

Canada’s National Firearms Association is this country’s largest civil rights organization advocating for the rights of Canadian firearms owners.
