Canada's National Firearms Association
For Immediate Release February  11, 2009
 
Bill C 301: An Important First Step In Reforming Canada's Firearms  Laws.
 
The National Firearms Association sees MP Garry Breitkreuz's Bill C-301 as 
an excellent first step in repairing Canada's failed firearms control system.
 
The Conservative Government is being proactive in maintaining  amnesties for
firearms owners and resisting demands from the gun control lobby  for more
firearms prohibitions. We are proud to support Garry  Breitkreuz's bill because
it addresses some of the most pressing excesses of the  current firearms
control system.

National Firearms Association Media Release

Tuesday, May 28th, 2008

Mayor David Miller Surrenders Toronto to Criminals and Gangs.
Mayor David Miller has made it clear that he intends to ban all lawful firearms activities within the limits of Greater Toronto.

There was nothing in the announcement from the Mayor of Toronto about getting tough on recidivist criminals, targeting gangs, or pursuing a zero tolerance policy against lawlessness and violence of all kinds.

Miller's threat is to close down licensed firearms dealers, certified gun clubs and ranges, and to harass and eliminate licensed firearms owners with registered firearms within that city.

National Firearms Association Endorses Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus

Finally, Outdoors and Sports People will have the representation they need in Parliament – Blair Hagen, National President, National Firearms Association.

Decades of urbanization have created a disconnect between rural and city populations. A disconnect between outdoors and sports people and city dwellers in major population centers, like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

It’s also resulted in a disconnect between federal governments and the cultural realities of the people in rural areas, and those depend on participation in rural economies for culture and lives.

Hunters, guides, trappers and sports people have all born the brunt of recent government legislation that has hampered and in many cases destroyed both businesses and lives.

A Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus has the potential to facilitate good legislation that concerns these people and their pursuits, and prevent bad regulation and legislation from being enacted. MP Garry Breitkreuz has identified a very positive solution to help prevent this from happening.

Rural Canadians, outdoors and sports people badly need representation in parliament, so that their voices are also heard when issues of firearms, land use, wildlife and the environment are addressed by federal politicians.

Canada was carved out of a wilderness that is still the envy of the world. The opportunities to explore and enjoy Canada’s outdoors and the pursuits associated with it are still limitless. The Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus has the potential to preserve these opportunities and pursuits for generations to come.

The responsible use and enjoyment of Canada’s outdoors; a Canadian cultural tradition.

A Conservative M. P. supplied me with a copy of its proposed "new" firearms control law. It is a grave disappointment, but I was expecting that; I know how Ottawa works. The Ministers tell their top bureaucrats to draft new laws, and what effects he wants the new laws to have. The bureaucrats then draft the new laws for Parliament to pass--laws that will have the effects the bureaucrats want them to have. Their draft Bill C-21 is scheduled to become law this fall.

In this case, the Conservative Ministers wanted new laws that would keep the firearms community in solid support of the Conservative Party--without alienating anti-gun soccer moms. The bureaucrats wanted new laws that would increase the number of their employees, the power of top bureaucrats, and the funding of their bureaucracy. You can judge the results:

To transfer a .22 single-shot Cooey rifle under the new Firearms Act section 23, "A person may transfer a firearm if, at the time of the transfer...the transferor [a dealer or an individual] has no reason to believe that the transferee is not authorized to acquire and possess that kind of firearm."

The seller just has to see the buyer's firearms licence, right? Wrong!

The new Section 23 goes on to say, "In the case of a transfer to an individual [by a dealer or another individual], the transferor informs a chief firearms officer and ­obtains the authorization of the chief firearms officer for the transfer...and...the prescribed conditions are met."

As you probably know, we now have a more favourable government, but we need to pressure it in order to actually get the things it promised before it was elected.

Pressure can be applied in a great many ways. This form of applying pressure is one that we are asking every shooting club in Canada (and there are over 550 that are NFA members) to pick up and run with.

I want your club to set up a training course for women, to teach safe and practical handgun shooting for the purpose of protecting human life from criminal violence. Women are the preferred targets of violent criminals, and they are too vulnerable in our society. Violent crime rates are increasing, and they need protection. Some classes should be for women only, and some for mixed groups.

This is a list of the contact information for the Prime Minister and every current Minister in the Conservative Government. I have moved copies of the three main targets to the top of the list, and the rest of the list is alphabetical by last name.

It is very important at this time to convince these people that the NFA is a large, politically important organization. That can best be done by you!!

The Conservative government has given me a copy of its proposed "new" firearms control law. It is a grave disappointment, but that is something I was expecting. I know how Ottawa works. The Minister tells the bureaucrats to write new laws, and tells him what effects he wants the laws to have. And then the bureaucrats write new laws--that have the effects the bureaucrats want them to have.

In this case, the Conservative Ministers wanted new laws to keep their promises to the firearms community, laws that would keep the firearms community in solid support of the Conservative Party--without alienating the soccer moms. The bureaucrats wanted to make sure that the new laws would not reduce the number of employees, power of the top bureaucrats, or the funding of their bureaucracy. The end result is interesting:
