Jerrold Lundgard, President
Dear Jerrold and Responsible Firearms Owners of Alberta,
On behalf of the Directors and members of the Canadian Unlicensed Firearms Owners Association (CUFOA), I would again like to extend Best Wishes to the Responsible Firearms Owners of Alberta as you gather for your Annual General Meeting. I regret that Jack Wilson and I will not be able to join you in Red Deer on Saturday, 25 May 2013.
We are very pleased to see that the Canadian Constitutional Foundation has decided to take on Bruce and Donna Montague’s case after Doug Christie’s death left them without counsel to fight property forfeiture.(1, 2, 3) We trust that Justice will prevail.
And also of some positive note: Joe Gingrich and I have been appointed to the Property Rights Committee of the Saskatchewan Party to advise the Saskatchewan Government on ways to better protect individual property.(4) This provincial property Rights initiative follows directly in the footsteps of Dale Blue.
Unfortunately, this past year has been extremely tough. Responsible firearms owners experienced the complete betrayal by Mr. Harper and his so-called Conservative Government. While proclaiming that he had “kept his promise”(5) to responsible firearms owners by “ending the long-gun registry”, Mr. Harper and his deceitful Members of Parliament firmly endorsed the worst part the 1995 Firearms Act – the Liberals’ firearms licencing scheme.(6)
Mr. President, we are much encouraged that you and the RFOA continue steadfast in this battle. Your emphasis on the lethal consequences of Criminal Code section 91 that makes the mere possession of a firearm a serious criminal offence is vital. This prohibition must be removed! The time has arrived where we must use every possible peaceful means to repeal this unjust law. We must regain the Right to possess firearms to defend ourselves without having to seek government permission.
We look forward to meeting many of you at the Conservative Party Convention in Calgary on Thursday, 27 June 2013. We will be seeking redress of Mr. Harper’s deplorable actions.(7)
