Firearms Owners Association
Brad Trost, MP
Dear Mr. Trost,
We need your help. While serving as Leader of the Opposition Mr. Harper promised to repeal all of the Liberals’ Firearms Act. But now that Mr. Harper has secured a majority Conservative Government, Mr. Harper says he will only “scrap the long-gun registry”.
We urgently call to your attention that the most onerous part of the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act is the licencing of firearms owners. Simply ‘scraping the long-gun registry’ does nothing to eliminate licensing. Thus after placing our faith and trust in the Conservative Party, many thousands of unlicensed responsible gun owners will still be considered criminals under this unjust law.
To be effective, any corrective legislation must repeal all of the Liberals’ Firearms Act and its attendant Criminal Code provisions that make the mere possession of a firearm in one’s own home a crime. We well remember Mr. Harper’s promise to gun owners:
‘Scrapping the long-gun registry’ is
not the solution. We need your commitment to working to repeal
of all of the Firearms Act and its attendant
Criminal Code provisions.
