When Canada’s current regime of gun control legislation was drafted, the law-abiding gun owners in this nation rallied against it.

The government of the day pushed the bill through in spite of many flaws, some of which contradict the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; going as far as to subject legal gun owners to illegal search and seizure and suspension of the right to remain silent during investigation.

Well, now the landscape has changed. It is clear that Canadians no longer want to see Ottawa waste precious resources on legislation that targets law-abiding citizens and leaves criminals to their misdeeds.

The current government has decided that it is not the law-abiding gun owners of this country that need to have their freedoms curtailed, but the lawless, the organized gangs. It is with this vision that we hope there are less victims for the victim’s advocates to mourn, less criminal acts with firearms for the Coalition for Gun Control to rail against, more resources for mental health and more money for policing.
