    LRGC Bulletin - URGENT!

    Urgent Request to ALL Members!

    Handgun and Rifle Ban - they want to confiscate our legal property!

    You thought it would never happen - now they are moving to do it!

    In late August, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a mandate letter for Bill Blair.

    For those of you not familiar with Blair, he’s the ex-Toronto cop turned Member of Parliament who was recently appointed to a brand new Ministry and given the title “Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Prevention”.

    His job, primarily, is to assist in ensuring Bill C-71 gets passed AND to “lead an examination of a national ban on handguns and assault weapons, while not impeding their lawful use by Canadians” – there’s an oxy-moron if there ever was one!
    (BTW - their definition of an "assault weapon" is any semi-auto!)

    What does this examination look like? Well, shortly after his orders came down from on high, Blair stood in committee and promised to conduct a full and balanced “public consultation” before the end of the calendar year.

    Here is your "public consultation"!

    Please MAKE time to fill out this online survey right away and forward it to your friends and family to do the same. Please do it NOW - before you forget - survey closes Nov 10!

    Info and survey link: https://www.canada.ca/en/services/policing/police/crime-and-crime-prevention/reducing-violent-crime-dialogue-handguns-assault-weapons.html

    Direct Survey link: https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/cnslttns/hndgn/index-en.aspx

    DO NOT IGNORE THIS REQUEST - IT MAY BE THE LAST CHANCE YOU GET TO SEE YOUR FIREARMS! (YOU KNOW OUR LONG GUNS WILL BE NEXT!)

    You know that the "gun-control" advocates will be hard at work getting the common uninformed person to complete this survey based on fear and ignorance - so we need to counter that effort!

    WE NEED EVERY LRGC MEMBER AND MORE TO COMPLETE THIS SURVEY!
    PLEASE FILL IN THE SURVEY AND GET EVERYONE YOU CAN TO DO SO TOO - ASAP!  

    Please do this NOW!

    Your LRGC Board!

    Wake up folks! 

    Trudeau and others are "pushing" for this Handgun and Semi-auto Long-gun ban! Now people are "pushing polls" that are providing biased and uninformed "data" to support this!? 
    Check out this interview: Jim Shockey Video

    Liberals are pushing for Public Consultation wrt the Handgun Ban - to see how many votes they can get before pushing the Handgun Ban (don't think long guns won't be next)  - read article here: Globe and Mail Article

    Liberals Introduce Bill C71 
    This bill is will not result in crime reduction or gang violence, or help solve any such issues we would all like to see fixed, but instead it will ONLY waste more taxpayer money that could have been used in this fight (just like the long-gun registry which wasted over $2 Billion!). The Liberals are not logical or responsible, as once again they are merely imposing more rediculous beauracracy on law-abiding firearm owners.
    Ask yourself - do they actually think the criminals are going to pay any attention whatsoever to more administrative rules and paperwork? Such foolishness! This is just more "legal firearm owner harrassment" - nothing else!

    Gun Owner News! Read!
    The Liberals have been busy and are at it again.
    Yes - Bill S-223 has now been submitted - again!

    See CSSA posts in "What's in the News" section
    at bottom of page to read more on this - as the new Bill is even MORE restrictive to "sportsman" than the old one - and will do nothing to solve crime - sound familiar (C-68)!

    Read!  This is a Trojan Horse Bill!

    New update: The bill S-223 went to second reading on April 19 2016 - see link:
      http://www.parl.gc.ca/Legisinfo/BillDetails.aspx?Mode=1&Language=E&billId=8177186&View=4 
     but appears to have
    not received a second to move the motion/bill ahead to third reading at this time
    (see second reading link near bottom on this parlimentary status page). Debate was closed - no further action defined - we will have to wait to see what the Liberals do with it next!?

    GUNTER: Departing senator's bill looks to give restrictive gun registration

     

    BY LORNE GUNTER , EDMONTON SUN 


    FIRST POSTED: MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2016 08:58 AM MDT

     

    Is Senate Private Bill S-223 a parting shot by a retiring Liberal senator or a trial balloon being launched by the Trudeau government to see whether there is any taste for a new gun registry?

     

    Hard to say. What is clear is that if S-223 ever became law, it would be even more restrictive than the 1995 long-gun registration bill, C-68.

     

    Introduced earlier this month by Quebec Liberal Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette, the bill may die when Hervieux-Payette retires from the Senate at the end of this week. The former Pierre Trudeau cabinet minister turns 75 - the mandatory Senate retirement age - on Friday.

     

    The bill also faces some significant procedural hurdles. For one, to get past first reading the bill requires both the Liberals and the Conservatives to speak to it. While the Liberals have scheduled their statements for as early as Tuesday, the Conservatives have no plans yet to address the bill. And since the Tories still hold the majority in the upper chamber, S-223 could languish on the order paper a long, long time.

     

    So maybe this is just Hervieux-Payette's last kick at the can; one more chance to make a clattering commotion on her way out the door.

     

    Hervieux-Payette, who was secretary of state for fitness and amateur sport back in the early '80s, has long been a fierce opponent of private gun ownership. She is also rabidly anti-American.

     

    A decade ago when an American tourist wrote Canadian senators to tell them she and her family would not be coming to Canada out of protest for the seal hunt, Hervieux-Payette told the woman "the daily massacre of innocent people in Iraq, the execution of prisoners - mainly blacks - in American prisons, the massive sale of handguns to Americans, and the destabilization of the entire world by the American government's aggressive foreign policy," was far worse than the seal hunt.

     

    But there is also some reason to think the bill is more than just the fading dream of a radically anti-gun senator.

     

    For one thing, it's more than 70 pages long and appears to be the work of several, professional lawyers and legislation drafters. Tony Bernardo, executive director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, says S-223 looks as if "it took a number of Department of Justice lawyers a few months of work to create."

     

    If Justice lawyers did help in the bill's creation, that would indication S-223 is a stalking horse - a false front the Trudeau government is hiding behind to gauge reaction and see whether they could get away with new gun controls.

     

    The key provisions include the reclassification of all firearms, except "hunting firearms" as "circumscribed firearms."

     

    Firearms in this new category - close to half of all firearms in the country - could not be stored in private homes. They would have to be kept locked up in government-approved vaults at authorized gun clubs or even police stations.

     

    And they could only be removed from these facilities by licensed "transporters." No word yet whether individual owners could get license to transport their own guns.

     

    And while guns would not have to be "registered," they would have to be "inscribed."

     

    Explaining the difference, Hervieux-Payette said, "We simply thought that using the term 'inscription' would eliminate some anxiety. I think that using the term inscription does not evoke feelings of fear" that a new registry is on the way.

     

    Let's hope when the good senator packs up her office this week, she packs up this dangerous bill along with her paperweight and letter opener.

    COMMENTARY – IS BILL S-223 A DANGEROUS "TROJAN HORSE?"

     

    She's baaaack. Just when you thought it was safe to go into the Senate of Canada, along comes Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette with the newest incarnation of her Draconian anti-gun bill, now called Bill S-223.

     

    This is the latest of several legislative introductions the honourable Senator has made to inflict a wicked piece of garbage on Canadians.

     

    The bill would change the "Restricted" category to "Circumscribed" (cutting off the flash hider of your AR-15?), prohibit all firearms except a VERY narrow range of hunting firearms and “localize” the prohibition of restricted firearms. In other words, that's centralized lock up of some of your guns and destruction of the rest.

     

    ALL SEMI-AUTOS OF ALL TYPES (except .22s) WOULD BE RESTRICTED/ PROHIBITED.

     

    As well, no one would be allowed to move circumscribed (restricted/prohibited) guns except approved “Transporters.” Of course, these would be made up of highly trained, untouchable and steely-eyed folks – like Canada Post, but even better.

     

    Guns would not be “registered” but “inscribed.” Says the good Senator: “You can appreciate that the terms ‘registration’ and ‘registered’ have been used so often that we simply thought that using the term ‘inscription’ would eliminate some anxiety. I think that using the term inscription does not evoke feelings of fear”"

     

    Yes, it's true, she really does think you are that stupid.

     

    Seemingly, she also thinks the media and the rest of Canadians are stupid enough to be fooled by this childish attempt at deceit.

     

    The Senator also states: “The firearm death rate in the United States, a country with very weak gun control laws, was 10.3 per 100,000 population in 2011. That amounts to 32,163 deaths in one year, according to the National Vital Statistic Reports from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That would be the number of deaths if 20 towers, like those of the World Trade Center, were to collapse every year in the United States. There were 2,977 victims on September 11, 2001.”

     

    Apparently she failed arithmetic too.

     

    Twenty World Trade Center tragedies would total 59,540, not 32,163. She also quotes the U.S. example as proof that Canada is different because of our gun control while failing to recognize that as the numbers of U.S. firearms goes up, violent crime with firearms goes down. Apparently the Senator's facts only go in one direction and her prowess in deciphering and analyzing social trends and dangers is only dwarfed by her considerable mathematics skills.

     

    As the last pail of stupid gets thrown into the tub, all restricted/prohibited would be forbidden to transfer.

     

    There's a lot more too. Some 76 pages of legalese gobbledygook to decipher, but we are on it!

     

    The bill cannot receive second reading until the Liberals and the Conservatives speak to the bill. The Liberals are set to speak on April 19 and the Conservative are TBA, but we are watching this closely. Bill S-223 has had a HUGE amount of work put into its creation. It took a number of Department of Justice lawyers a few months of work to create this one – and that is very concerning.

     

    We will be listening to the Liberal's statement on the bill, anxious to hear if their promise to not create a gun registry meant that it was okay to create an “inscription registry.” If this bill passes second reading, we go to war!

     

    Stay tuned, polish your armour and sharpen your swords.
