firearms. History tells us otherwise. Our right "to have arms for
their defence" originates the same place as did the American right,
section 7 of the English Bill of Rights (EBR) of 1688. The EBR is a
key foundation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The
Conservative Party policy on firearms re-affirms this civil right by

do so would be a legal infringement. This assures the continuation of
the Canadian firearms community's rich heritage, culture and history in

abusive oppressive governments and people like Ms. Cukier from
suppressing those rights. Although some may wish to deny this group
their traditions, their right will always exist. And that is not
