Dear Sir &/or Madam,
Re: Your Letter Dated 12July2002
I am in receipt of your letter noted above which shows that a review of
your records indicates that I own restricted firearms which I may not
have yet applied to reregister. Your letter further notes that "it is
possible that your firearms registration application was en route or in
process at the time of this mailing".
You are correct on the first point: I do indeed own firearms which were
formerly registered as restricted, a 44 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver
and an M-1 US Army carbine.
You are also correct on the second point: I have not yet applied to reregister
You are not correct on your third point: my application is NOT in the
mail, nor should it be in process.
Please be advised that I will NOT be registering any of my firearms nor
re-registering any of my restricted firearms.
As I indicated in previous correspondence to your office (see letter of
Friday 09 November 2001 ) I burned my firearms license 11November2001
as an act of civil disobedience to the Firearms Act.
As a continuation of this civil disobedience I will not register, nor
reregister, any of my firearms.
The Firearms Act is an unjust law that cries out to be repealed. The Firearms
Act violates at least seven specific sections of the Canadian Charter
of Rights and Freedoms. Our government has never demonstrated that the
conditions under which this unjust law was passed were either "reasonable"
nor "justified". The Firearms Act also violates English Common Law. The
Firearms Act likewise violates the entire social contract upon which our
society is based, specifically the right to self preservation.
I will be in Ottawa on New Year's Day 2003 to burn some firearms registration
certificates in open defiance of the Firearms Act. If you would like to
discuss this matter, perhaps we could meet in person at that time, Miramichi
being no further from Ottawa than Saskatoon.
Until such time as the Firearms Act is totally repealed and replaced with
responsible legislation, I would suggest that you seek honorable employment
