Eating the Elephant

There is a very politically-incorrect story about getting a mule to listen by first hitting it over the head with a 2X4.*

I think that story applies to those who advise "eating the Elephant one bite at a time".

I think it is time for everyone to realize that before we can "eat" the Elephant,
we must at least hit it over the head with a 2X4 to get its attention.

Mr. Harper & the Conservatives now have that stable Majority they requested we help give them.

Essentially, Mr. Harper & the Conservatives can now do whatever they please;
for example, ending the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly on western wheat & barley.

Mr. Harper & the Conservatives could repeal the Firearms Act.

Yet Joe Gingrich has now twice provided hard evidence that Mr. Harper and the Conservatives have no intention of repealing licencing as Mr. Harper and Mr. Breitkreuz promised us that they would do.

Mr. Harper & the Conservatives now talk only of "ending the long-gun registry".

Worse - much, much worse - Mr. Harper & the Conservatives now publicly state that they support "the current licensing scheme."

Just which "current licensing scheme" would that be?

I believe that would be former Liberal Minister of Justice Allan Rock's licensing scheme.

When Mr. Harper & the Conservatives support a core Liberal policy of Jean Chrétien -
a licensing policy totally discredited by Mr. Breitkreuz AND almost every gun owners association in Canada even before the Liberals passed it -
I do not see how we can continue to think of Mr. Harper & the Conservatives as "our friends".

We need to get this Elephant's attention.

If an unjust law has ever begged for peaceful, non-violent civil non-compliance,
the licencing scheme begs for it.

Ladies and Gentleman,

I respectfully suggest it is time for you to burn your firearms licences.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Gingrich,

Thank you for taking the time to write to me regarding the Firearms Act.

The Conservative Party campaigned on the issue of repealing the long gun
registry only, and has never claimed to want to repeal the Firearms Act.
