As you may know the Government is exploring a Restricted Firearms Ban in response to recent gang related shootings. It is the position of the St. John's Rod and Gun Club that such a ban will not have the desired affect of reducing gun violence. Recently created legislation (Bill C-71) does not address criminal gang violence in any way. The proposed changes to our gun control legislation will not affect criminal firearms use, it will do nothing more than punish law abiding, licensed gun owners. Indeed Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Criminal Reduction, has expressed his doubt in this regard stating that he does not believe a ban will be the most effective measure to restrict the access that criminals have to such weapons due to the problem of them being smuggled across the US border.
To ensure that such a ban is not implemented we urge you to contact your local MP and Senator to express your objection to such legislation.
