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 »

Young will no longer be Alberta’s NFA Director

National Firearms AssociationThe following is presented with no additional commentary, other than to say that we’re sad to see him go:

Effective Tuesday, March 11, 2014, I resigned as Alberta Director of the National Firearms Association. NFA President Sheldon Clare and I disagreed over decisions he made about NFA communications on social media and my suggestion regarding coordination of our efforts with the CSSA, both matters that I felt should have been referred to the NFA Board of Directors for further consideration. I waited until today to make this announcement to see if the impasse could be resolved. Sadly, it could not. Continue reading »
