    Firearm News - July 27, 2020

    Did you receive the RCMP’s
    “Not A-Registration-Certificate-Revocation” letter?
     

    This is the next "salvo" in the Liberal/RCMP bag of tricks for licensed responsible firearm owners
    (as of course no criminals would receive/obey these!) 
     
    If you received one - please read the info below! 
    (Even if you didn't receive one - please read also as they have executed this
    same trickery in years past and surely will again!) 

    Note: The OIC/RCMP list continues to grow (from 1500 to now over 9500 firearm types -
    without any oversight - and even including non-restricted 22 cal. rifles and shotguns)
    so yours might be on it now or very soon - even if it wasn't originally listed,
    thereby making YOU an instant criminal! 

    CSSA Update on RCMP Letter

    For more detailed info - listen to this video:
    Legal Opinion on RCMP Letter

    CCFR Position on filing a Sec. 74 Court Challenge: 

    CCFR Position on Sec. 74 Challenge 

    If you as a firearm owner are not yet supporting CSSA, CCFR or NFA (or all three) - then please - get your head out of the sand - and support/donate!  What are you waiting for? No one else is going to help us.  The more they take - the more they will want - and their goal is to take them all! 
    Aren't you tired of being demonized for enjoying the shooting sports? 

    PLEASE - DO YOUR PART! 

    And be sure to support and vote for the ONLY party that will support you as a firearms owner!

    Firearm News: May 25 2020

    What can I do to fight the Liberal Firearm Bans and stop them from "scapegoating"all Licensed Firearm Owners
    for the actions of Criminals?

    1) Sign the available petitions in support these issues! 

    Why are you urging me, and everyone I know, to sign these petitions? 

    We have an opportunity to give our political allies the ability to keep the stupidity of the Liberal government’s latest round of gun bans in the public’s eye. Why is this important?

    Politicians need tools to do their jobs, and one of the tools at their disposal are petitions. I dislike petitions because, far too often, they give the person signing them the false impression they’ve actually accomplished something when they have not. Signing a petition is not an end. It’s not even a beginning. The value of a petition is to give our elected officials – in this case our Conservative MPs – the ability to keep raising the issue both inside and outside of Parliament. The flaws in the Liberal government’s latest Order in Council are many. As more and more of these flaws surface, a petition gives our MPs the ability to speak about those failings – which can only help our cause.

    So… here are the links. Please go to them all, sign your name and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, click the confirmation email you will receive for the first three very shortly afterward. If you do not, your name will NOT be added to the list.

    1. Petition e-2574 (Democratic process)
    2. Petition e-2576 (Democratic process)
    3. Petition e-2582 (Democratic process)
    4. Matt Larose’s petition on Change.org [h/t @AnnieOak5]
    5. UNIFOR Members Only on Change.org
    6. MP Cheryl Gallant’s Petition To Fire Bill Blair

    Sign them, click on the confirmation link in the three emails you will receive For petitions 1-3), then ask all your family and friends to do the same. Will these petitions in and of themselves stop the latest Liberal nonsense? No, of course not. They are simply one more tool in our arsenal to fight back against measures we know will not and cannot stop gang shootings or mass killers.

    2. Support our firearm rights groups that are leading the fight!  
    Many of these organizations are currently involved in bringing "human rights" court challenges against the government on your behalf to expose and fight the government's actions to blame and punish licensed firearm owners and businesses (through these and future firearm bans) for the actions of madmen. 

    The legal question regarding 12 and 10 gauge shotguns, and any other firearms they see fit to ban is NOT over - don't assume that it is!  The RCMP continue to add shotguns and other rifles to the growing list of prohibited firearms - without any oversight! 

    Support these groups through membership and donations!

    Now is the time for action - NOT excuses!  Please do it now!  Don't forget to donate - we will all lose much more if these challenges are NOT successful!

    a.  CCFR - https://firearmrights.ca/en/donate/

    b.  CSSA - https://cssa-cila.org

    c.  NFA - https://nfa.ca

    3. Write your MP, the Prime Minister and Bill Blair 

    Tell them you are against the bans and their continued "scapegoating" of legal firearm owners.  More letters are better than long letters - and keep sending!  Snail mail is best - No postage required.  

    4. Donate to the only political party interested in supporting you as a licensed firearms owner - the Conservative Party of Canada! Support and donate to them as they continue to fight for us in Ottawa.  Only they have stated publicly that repeal of this OIC and a revamping of the Firearm program in Canada is needed to stop the scapegoating of licensed firearm owners!  Don't forget about the generous tax credit for donations (about 75% up to about $450 which means it costs you only about $125 to make this donation!)
    Donate here:  CPC  https://www.conservative.ca

    BTW - Don't expect others to protect YOUR rights as a firearms owner - if we don't ALL do something to help fight against this attack on us - then one day soon they will come for our firearms!  It will only work if we ALL respond as the Liberals have a divide and conquer plan of action as we have all seen in the past. 


    (FYI - My understanding is that notices from the RCMP are already in the mail addressed to all PAL holders! This is what it looks like:  RCMP Notice to PAL Holders

    Attention Members - 

    Do you have a target 22 cal rifle suitable for use in our Junior Rifle Program that you would be willing to donate or sell at a significant discount to the LRGC? 
    We are looking for a few good quality, single-shot, bolt-action 22 cal target rifles with peep sights to replace some of the worn-out/less reliable rifles we currently use, and to add several to our inventory so that we can run a full shooting line.  If you have one you can part with that you think is suitable - please contact planning@lrgc.com - and provide a photo/description of the rifle. 

    Our juniors will thank you!
