BC Health has removed the mask mandate for ALL INDOOR spaces where people gather or interact.  For the LRGC, this means that anyone entering the clubhouse, washrooms and/or using the indoor range is no longer required to wear a mask. 

Persons that are immune compromised or that feel more comfortable doing so are encouraged to still wear a mask. Please respect the personal choice of any member. 

Continuing to maintain social distancing and sanitizing /washing your hands frequently is still recommended to reduce the transmission of Covid-19.

Please do not come to the range if you have tested positive for Covid-19, are showing Covid-19 symptoms, or generally not feeling well and suspect you are infected.  We are relying on everyone to show proper judgement to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 to our other members and guests.

FIREARM NEWS: Bill C21 and OIC - New Government Attacks on
Legal Firearm Owners and Businesses

Recent action being taken by the Liberals/NDP without justification or debate: 

1) The introduction of Bill C21 - designed to eliminate all ability for legal firearm owners or businesses to acquire, sell or transfer any restricted firearms currently in their possession, and to force confiscation of this personal property by the government upon death (no compensation offered - i.e. constituting theft). This legislation is scheduled to be implemented within 10 days of Parliament returning in the fall (i.e. returning on Sept 17).  

2) The introduction of an OIC which will ban all restricted firearm importation into Canada effective Aug 19, 2022.  

As neither of these actions will affect ANY criminal activity, such as gun smuggling and the use of firearms in violent crimes, the ONLY people affected and clearly targeted by these actions are legal/licensed sport shooters!  

As no one will be allowed to acquire a restricted firearm come likely Oct 2022, the ability of a new shooter to get a restricted license will be totally eliminated,
 putting many shooting clubs (including the LRGC) at severe financial risk as a large percentage of the club's funding comes from these sport shooters!

If you are a non-restricted firearm owner and believe this will not affect you - guess again! Because some clubs may soon disappear (a clear goal of these actions), or at best case - need to raise your membership rates even higher to compensate for the significant financial losses due these new government actions! 

Don't think for a minute that they won't come for the non-restricted firearms next!
