The Honourable Bob Runciman
Dear Senator Runciman,
I have experienced personally the terrible tragedy of having a family member killed by a firearm. The grief is inexplicable. Yet what I find even more incomprehensible is that some so-called women’s groups use these personal tragedies as an excuse to make the possession of all firearms illegal. No amount of licencing would have prevented this death.
I ask that as you consider Bill C-19, An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Firearms Act, that you ensure that the Government does not continue to make the mere possession of a firearm a criminal act.
My family and I for years supported the conservative principles that helped form the Conservative Party of Canada. We worked hard to elect a Conservative majority Government to repeal all of the Firearms Act.
Please honour the Conservative Policy and respect my right to own my firearms.
