Glad to help.

As you consider whether/what to do in the future and may find yourself wishing "they" would do something, please permit me to pass along to you and your friends a gem that was given to me:

I agree that there's nothing "conservative" about these gun control laws in Kanada.

In some ways, esp. foreign policy, Harper's government is indeed conservative. In other areas, they are definitely CINO. Seems to be all the rage these days.

Good luck to you all above the border. I could not possibly be so polite in writing to my elected thiev... er, officials.

Sent out emails followed up with snail mail.

Got one response (which I was surprised about). But, it still doesn't cut the mustard.

Dear Ms. X:


Thank you for your recent correspondence regarding the recent decision of the RCMP to prohibit the Swiss Arms Classic Green Rifle. As you are aware, the rifle was transferred from non-restricted to prohibited status by the RCMP on Thursday, February 27th.


I was troubled to learn of this decision, and I am therefore pleased that the Minister of Public Safety, Steven Blaney is taking the appropriate actions to ensure that firearms owners who acted in good faith are not penalized. On Monday, March 3, 2014, Minister Blaney announced that he will bring forward amnesty to ensure that individuals in possession of these Swiss-imported rifles will continue to be able to possess their property without threat of criminal charges.


Details of this amnesty will be made public in the near future, and I will continue to closely monitor this situation as will Minister Blaney to ensure the rights of gun owners are respected.

Our government will continue to strive to make Canada one of the safest countries in the world without penalizing law-abiding citizens.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your views with me; I hope that my response is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future should you have any further questions or concerns.

Yours truly,

James Rajotte, MP

Edmonton-Leduc

JR/ch

Yeah, well criminals need amnesty. Gun owners are not criminals.

It is offensive to me that our government allows the national police to create thousands of paper criminals with this latest gun ban and then grants us an "amnesty" and wants credit for it.

For many people a gun collection is an investment. I see no difference between confiscating someone's investment and making it impossible for them to sell it. Lets face it, if you have to sell a gun, but a very limited number of people are allowed to buy it, the value just plummeted.

We think that this could not happen in America. But we used to say that about a lot of things. Take free speech for example. That is now a hate crime.

Unfortunately they seem to be going down the same road as the UK. Looking at the firearms laws at present in Canada there isn't a big difference from the UK.

We are actually retreating from where we were and are not similar to the UK at all, really. We never got that bizarre.

Canada remains one of the small handful of countries that ever repealed gun registration laws. We still require registration of handguns - a requirement that was brought in around 1930 when there was a fear of an armed Bolshevik uprising. I haven't met an armed Bolshevik in.....ever. Just goes to show you how hard it is to get rid of a bad law.

We do have a fair ways to go to get out of the gun control asylum. I'd sure agree on that much.
