COMMENTARY: British Columbia shuts shooting down — Learn from mistakes made there before it’s too late for you!

On April 5, 2017, B.C.’s recreational shooters suffered a huge setback. The Government of British Columbia shut down shooting “within 400 metres of select roads on non-municipal Crown land within the Fraser Valley Regional District.”

Why? Partly because target shooters were too lazy to clean up after themselves and partly because the B.C. government could no longer turn a blind eye to their atrocious and increasingly dangerous behaviour. Continue reading »

Harper government resists power-hungry police

The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) is not anti-police.

On the contrary, many CSSA members proudly serve in provincial, municipal and national police forces. Theirs is the difficult task of standing in harm’s way and bringing repeat offenders and hardened criminals to justice. A modern society without police intervention would be a horror show. Perhaps the danger that police officers face daily is the reason some are resorting to bullying black-ops tactics more and more. But here’s the clinker – violent crime is going down, not up.

As you’ve probably all heard by now, Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney announced on Wednesday that the CPC would be introducing what they call the “Common Sense Firearms Licensing Act” this fall when Parliament resumes.  You may also have noticed that there hasn’t been any story on it here yet.

The reason for the absence of commentary here is simple: I haven’t read the thing yet and until I do, I mean to keep my lip buttoned (or at least try to).  But considering it has the word “licensing” in it, I’m probably not going to be overly impressed.  But I’ll wait and see.  Maybe I can get a nice surprise for a change.

Chow runs afoul of Layton

CSSA/CILAby CSSA/CILA

Toronto mayoral candidate Olivia Chow made the following handgun ban pronouncement on July 14:

“There’s no reason anyone needs a handgun in a big city like ours. And, um, some of the handguns are stolen, others are smuggled across the border, and we need to get rid of these handguns in every which way. And I will support the initiatives of other municipalities in tightening gun control. Why are young people packing a gun? So they can feel secure? Or that they would go out and shoot someone they don’t know, um, drive by and you know, and not worried about how a stray bullet can kill people, considering what kind of impact it could have, you know, wiping out the young life of Ephraim Brown who was 11 years old.”
