Firearms Rights and Advocacy Committee

My Fellow Members
 
The government is about to implement its “solution” to gun violence in Canada. As you know they will ban what they are calling assault style rifles and enable cities and municipalities to impose further restrictions on hand guns. I urge you all once again voice your opposition to this folly. Please contact your MP, Bill Blair and Trudeau and make yourself heard. It is the only option open to us. Here are some suggested points you may want to make:
 
1. The government’s proposed action does not address the problem of gang violence.
 
2. The 400 to 600 million anticipated cost to buy back prohibited firearms can be better spent developing and implementing a strategy to combat violence and the smuggling of illicit firearms in to Canada. 
 
3. The decision to ban so called assault style rifles is not evidenced based. 
 
Respectfully Email, write or call with this message as soon as you can. Bitching and moaning about it on social media will get us nowhere. Every letter and email received by a politician has an exponential affect. Take 5 minutes out of your busy day and get it done.

Call to Action! Notice to SJRGC Members:
 
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.You need only click on the one, or all, of the following to contact your elected representative and voice your opposition. Please be respectful and do so at your earliest convenience.You will also find links to other Firearm Advocacy
