Campaign #1 - Our Resolve
The Liberal government has introduced Bill C-71. This bill is their trial balloon, their test of our resolve. If we fail to push back hard there will be more coming. We will be their whipping boy to satisfy the demands of the Coalition for Gun Control and Poly Remembers. We must not wait until the prohibitions start. We must let them know that we are united, motivated and angry. We must let them know the size of our voting block and our determination to wield that voting block to punish them for using us a low hanging fruit to satisfy the demands of a few gun grabbers. We must speak in one clear voice that will shake them to the core!
Dear Prime Minister:
You promised a Liberal government would implement evidence-based policies. You promised you would introduce legislation to get handguns and assault weapons off our streets. Instead, with the introduction of Bill C-71 you have decided to once again ignore the evidence readily available from Statistics Canada and the Department of Justice and use licensed gun owners as your whipping boy to garner some votes, to be seen "doing something".
Well we grew tired of this mistreatment in the 90's and early 2000's. It was harder to organize then but we did it, just ask Mr. Holland. This time around we have social media in our toolbelt and we are better organized. Our numbers have grown too. As such we will no longer tolerate being treated like criminals for you to attempt to grab votes at our expense.
The lifetime background checks, backdoor vendor registry, backdoor registrar transfer system, useless extra ATT paperwork, free reign given to the RCMP to classify firearms without government oversight and the prohibiting of Swiss Arms and CZ-858 rifles must be removed from Bill C-71. Otherwise we will organize against you for the upcoming 2019 election. We will donate to other parties (we're really good at that). We will volunteer our time to other parties. We will be active on social media and every news site exposing the public to actual evidence-based facts regarding the source of gun violence in Canada.
There are over 2 million licensed gun owners in Canada. Most of us have immediate and extended family who support our position. With that thought I will leave you with a quote from one of your most senior and experienced MP's.
"We haven't learned as the Liberal party, if you're going to form, if you're going to develop policy if you're going to implement policy, you have to form government. And we need rural Canada in our camp. And I can tell you gun control cost us in rural Canada at least 60 seats"
