A letter of mine that is making the rounds of various newspapers:


Harper has vowed to rid Canada of gun law


I would like to remind readers, and our newly elected representatives, of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s actual promise to law-abiding Canadian gun owners:

“I was and still am in total agreement with the statement made in the House of Commons by former Reform Leader Preston Manning on 13 June 1995:

“Bill C-68, if passed into law will not be a good law. It will be a blight on the legislative record of the government, a law that fails the three great tests of constitutionality, of effectiveness and of democratic consent to f the governed. What should be the fate of a bad a law? It should be repealed …”

Bill C-68 (The Firearms Act) has proven to be a bad law and has created a bureaucratic nightmare for both gun owners and the government. As leader of the Official Opposition, I will use all powers afforded to me as leader and continue our party’s fight to repeal Bill C-68 and replace it with a firearms control system that is cost effective and respects the rights of Canadians to own and use firearms responsibly.” — Stephen Harper, January 2002

Responsible and respectable law-abiding gun owners will not rest until every vestige of this onerous and draconian law is obliterated into oblivion.
