“What we do this year will set the stage for our
Dear Responsible Canadian Firearms Owner,
I recently received a letter from Prime Minister Harper. Due to the vital importance of Mr. Harper’s message, I quote the letter in part below:
Please note well what Mr. Harper said:
2013 is the critical year not only for Mr. Harper, the Conservatives, but even more importantly, for responsible Canadian firearms owners. 2013 is the year when vital, “generational” changes need to be made. When 2013 ends the Conservatives will go into re-election mode.
This year, 2013 – within these next eleven and a half months – we must convince Mr. Harper to keep his promise to firearms owners. We must convince Mr. Harper “to repeal Bill C-68” – the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act.1 In this short time we must ensure that Mr. Harper fully implements the Conservative Party Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.”2
We must see Mr. Harper repeal the Liberals’ firearms licencing mandate. Mr. Harper must remove the mere possession of a firearm from the Criminal Code.
I implore you to get personally involved by committing yourself to the New Years’ Resolutions for Responsible Firearms Owners 2013 copied below.
The changes we make this year are vital to us, to our children, our grandchildren, and the generations to come.

For the New Year 2013 “I resolve to”:

Alternate for voters with Liberal, NDP, & Bloc MP’s:
Write my MP before the end of January & tell him/her that I will not vote for him/her ever again unless he/she supports the Conservatives in a vote to repeal ALL of the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act.
2. Attend the Conservative Party Convention in Calgary in June 2013 and demonstrate with the Coalition to Implement Conservative Party Policy,* specifically, the current Firearms Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.”
3. Vote Green!** if Mr. Harper has not repealed ALL of the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act before the end of 2013.
And most importantly,
4. I resolve to burn my firearms licence and send the ashes to Mr. Stephen Harper.

1. Mr. Harper’s Promise to Repeal Bill C-68
I was and still am in total agreement with the statement made in the House of Commons by former Reform Leader Preston Manning on 13 June 1995:
Bill C-68 [The Firearms Act] has proven to be a bad law and has created
a bureaucratic nightmare for both gun owners and the government. As Leader
of the Official Opposition, I will use all powers afforded to me as Leader
and continue our party’s fight to repeal Bill C-68 and replace it
with a firearms control system that is cost effective and respects the
rights of Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.
As approved by the CPC Montréal Convention, 19 March 2005
“There is only one to fix this mess and that is to elect a Conservative
government. We promise to repeal Bill C-68 and return the gun laws to
the way they were before 1995. Then I personally promise that I will start
the task of fixing all the flaws in federal firearm laws by requiring
that they be subjected to a public safety test administered by the Auditor
General of Canada. My proposal includes a sunset clause on all gun control
laws that have been proven by the Auditor General not to be cost effective
at reducing the criminal use of firearms and improving public safety.”
