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 »

Security is the mother of danger and the grandmother of destruction — Thomas Fuller

The Canadian Firearms Program, a component of the Canadian Firearms Act (a stupid law, drafted by the Liberal government led by Prime Minister Jean Chretien and enacted in 1995) burdens peaceful and law abiding hunters, sport shooters and gun collectors with oppressive regulations and enables belligerent and defiant bureaucrats in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to arbitrarily order  the prohibition and confiscation of legally acquired and owned firearms.

The decision to proceed with this policy was rooted in the moral panic that arose following the mass murder of fourteen women at an engineering school in Montreal in 1989. Moral panic is defined as “… an intense feeling expressed in a population about an issue that appears to threaten the social order.” (Jones, M, and E. Jones as cited in Wikipedia)  Following this tragedy, Canadian gun owners were singled out as a menace to the social order. This was not the first time in Canadian history that a federal government responded to a moral panic in pushing forward with stupid legislation, against the counsel of advisors from within its own ranks, that resulted in the oppressive regulation and confiscation of property from a segment of the population in Canadian society who were unjustly deemed to threaten the social order.

Young Liberals get an “F”  for gun control research

CSSA/CILAby CSSA

There’s an old political observation that suggests idealistic students vote NDP, empire-building young adults vote Liberal, and middle-age wisdom creates Conservatives.

The ludicrous motion hatched by Young Liberals of Canada to bring Australian-style gun bans to Canada reveals that idealism has trumped reality within their ranks. The tyrannical Australian firearms ban hasn’t reduced gun crime Down Under or anywhere else in the world. Young Liberals, many of whom are steeped in post-secondary academia, should know at least something about analyzing statistical outcomes. Sadly, the Little Lefties who drafted the anti-gun motion for next weekend’s Liberal Biennial Convention 2014 must have been out having a smoke when their class studied Research 101.

Self-defence is not vigilantism. Get over it.

by Matt Gurney
National Post

There have been many high-profile news stories over the last several years that have featured Canadians using a firearm against a criminal assault. And while most of us will never need to do the same, it’s at least theoretically possible enough for it to be an issue of public concern. The law must contain provisions for scenarios that are plausible, even if they are not likely on a day-to-day basis.

The Conservatives have pledged to address the concerns of Canadians by revisiting and revamping Canada’s complex and convoluted laws concerning self-defence. In meetings on Wednesday concerning the proposed Citizen’s Arrest and Self-Defence Act,  Attorney-General Rob Nicholson was asked by a Tory MP if firing a warning shot during a confrontation was a legitimate act of self-defence, or, as the Crown sometimes contends, unlawful discharge of a firearm. “I think it is [legitimate self-defence],” the Attorney-General replied.

Cue much outrage from Liberal interim leader Bob Rae. Firing a warning shot isn’t self defence, says he. It’s encouraging Canadians to be vigilantes! Continue reading »
