The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada
House of Commons
Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0A6

Dear Mr. Harper,

Re: I repeat my Challenge to you; Enforce the Firearms Act

In refusing to repeal the Liberals' 1995 Firearms Act and its attendant changes to the Criminal Code that make the mere possession of firearm illegal, you therefore now own the responsibility of enforcing it.

On 13 July 2013, I sent you a letter that says in part:(1)

"Mr. Harper, I challenge you to uphold the law (the Firearms Act) ... I hereby give you the means to have me found guilty by a jury of my peers. I attach an affidavit that clearly states I own a Cooey .22 rifle; that I knowingly possess this rifle without a licence in direct violation of Criminal Code section 92(1):

'every person commits an offence who possesses a firearm knowing that the person is not the holder of

(a) a licence under which the person may possess it;'”

As I publically stated in the affidavit I sent to you over two months ago, I am in direct, overt, publically acknowledged contravention of the licencing mandate of the Firearms Act.(2)

Your silence in the face of my open civil disobedience implies your consent of my actions. You cannot continue to allow me to possess a firearm without a licence while boasting of being "tough on crime". My illegal action makes a mockery of your law-and-order proclamations.

Therefore I repeat my challenge to you, Mr. Harper. If you believe licencing responsible firearms owners makes Canadians safer, then fulfill your duty; have me charged and tried in court.

Sincerely,


Edward B. Hudson DVM, MS
Secretary
