Firearms Owners Association
05 December 2011
Ron Cannan, MP
Dear Mr. Cannan,
As a responsible unlicensed firearms owner I am deeply disturbed and very concerned about a letter dated 07 September 2011 from the Minister of Justice Rob Nicholson that states:
A person of my proven integrity and loyalty cannot understand how the CPC came to destroy the confidence of several million real Canadians. Indeed, I find Mr. Nicholson’s statement both inconceivable and unconscionable.
This drastic change in the Conservatives’ position on licensing is a total betrayal of everything that I have strived to accomplish by working for, donating to, and promoting the Conservatives’ cause in the past.
When, and under what circumstances, did the Conservatives sell-out responsible firearm-owning Canadian citizens?
When, and under what circumstances, did the Conservatives adopt the licencing mandate of the Liberals’ 1995 Firearms Act?
I need to receive your personal assurance that you understand the vital difference between the registering of firearms and the licencing of firearms owners.
I need to receive your personal assurance that you personally do not accept “the current licensing scheme” foisted upon us by Jean Chrétien and Allan Rock.
Before I can again support the Conservatives I must have your commitment to decriminalizing the mere ownership of firearms.
Please encourage your fellow Conservatives to reclaim their former virtues and become trustworthy again.
