In Memoriam:
Robert (Bob) Hamilton
13 August 1937 – 08 July 2012

Bob Hamilton of LeRoy, Saskatchewan, now joins Dale Blue, Dave Tomlinson, Al Parsons, and Gordon Hitchens in the great shooting range in the sky where no firearms licence nor gun registration is needed, and no federal firearms officials, police, nor RCMP interfere as they shoot whenever they want.

Like Dale, Dave, Al, and Gordon, Bob was part of the ‘Old Guard’ - sometimes disparagingly referred to as AOB’s*. These guys may have sometimes been ‘angry’ – and justifiably so, because they grew up when Canadians were truly free. As youths they could go into a hardware store, put their hard earned cash on the counter and purchase a firearm and ammo – no questions asked – and go out and shoot gophers on the edge of town. PETA members did not take off their clothes in protest, and the Emergency Response Team did not strip-search them after confiscating their “weapons”.

Unlike some gun owners today, Bob and these gentlemen understood the true evils of the Liberal’s 1995 Bill C-68, the Firearms Act, and the consequent amendments to the Criminal Code. In this fight to preserve our Canadian heritage and culture, Bob stepped forward to be counted and personally supported CUFOA’s court challenges to licencing, attending court with us in both Humboldt and Saskatoon.

I imagine that Bob, Dale, Dave, Al, and Gordon would be shouting at us to heed John McCrae’s admonition to “Take up our quarrel with the foe”. Having lived to see Mr. Harper’s betrayal of firearms owners with Bill C-19, Bob understood that Mr. Harper and his so-called Conservatives who now endorse licencing are the foe.

Let us honour Bob and hold the torch high as we continue the fight to protect our Rights and Freedoms.

Sincerely,


Edward B. Hudson DVM, MS
Secretary
