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 these firearms.

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The Firearms Act is an unjust law that cries out to be repealed.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Until such time as the Firearms Act is totally repealed and replaced with responsible legislation, I would suggest that you seek honorable employment elsewhere.
