NFA Supports Liberal MP’s Bill

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Canada’s National Firearms Association is pleased to support Liberal MP Joyce Murray’s private member’s Bill C-622.  Speaking from Prince George, NFA President Sheldon Clare said, “We are very concerned about the lack of oversight of our intelligence gathering agencies’ activities and the potential for abuse of meta-data collection.  The recent government bill marketed as intended to prevent cyberbullying that would give police significant additional powers to obtain private information without warrant give ordinary people much cause for concern.  Firearm owners are already very familiar with how this sort of data collection can be abused to target individuals and groups of individuals for dubious purposes.  Murray’s Bill C-622 is a good counterbalance to this risk to the privacy of Canadians.” Continue reading »

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.

RCMP ATI ACT RESPONSE – FILE # A-2013-04535 / F141
Analysis and Commentary by Dennis R. Young – February 20, 2014

This RCMP response to an Access to Information Act request was sent to the National Firearms Association by mistake. It is highly unusual because the RCMP answered the questions posed by the person or organization making the request which it has been my experience in two decades of filing approximately seven hundred ATI Act requests to many departments, this is never done. The standard practise is for the responding department or agency to provide documents or records that may be related to the issues being addressed in the request. Continue reading »
