In a letter from the Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada dated
03 January 2013,
As I said in my reply to our Party Leader, I totally agree with Mr. Harper. What we do this year is of vital importance. Our actions this year will indeed affect not just ourselves, but more importantly, our grandchildren.
As a grandparent I want to ensure that the next generation has the Right to have “Armes for their defense.”1
My granddaughter will only be able to defend herself if Mr. Harper honours his promise “to repeal Bill C-68” – the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act.2
My grandson will only be able to defend himself if Mr. Harper fully implements the Conservative Party Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.”3
Mr. Harper asked that I “be steadfast” in my support of our Party. I assured Mr. Harper that this year – 2013 - when he keeps his promise to Canadians to repeal the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act owner licencing scheme that made the mere possession of a firearm a crime, I will once again support the Conservative Party.
Mr. Harper requested that I continue my “contributions to sustain the Conservative Party.” I assured Mr. Harper that this year – 2013 - when he fully implements the Conservative Party Policy to respect “the rights of law-abiding Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly”, I will once again send my contributions to the Conservative Party.
Mr. Harper was very direct in soliciting our support. But Mr. Harper sadly fails to realize that this year he must justify his call for our support and contributions.
Maurice, I implore you to straightforwardly admonish Mr. Harper to keep his promise this year to repeal the Firearms Act. I beseech you to candidly adjure Mr. Harper this year to honour the Conservatives Party Policy to respect our Right to own and use firearms responsibly. This year - 2013 - Mr. Harper must implement these specific actions.

“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.”

The Promise of the Conservatives while Serving as the Loyal Opposition
“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.”
