Range Work – May 27th 2020

Thank you to all who came out last night to pick rocks on both ranges. We had about 25+ members who did a lot of work. With the help of one member’s Gator and trailer, another’s quad and trailer plus Marty Botincan’s little Bobcat both ranges are looking great.

We have some signage to post, the new pistol area firing line pad to form. We’ll be notifying the membership with the next work crew which will be a smaller one due to the nature of specialized work that has to be done to complete this last portion.

We’re almost there folks!

Stay warm and cover any vegetation/flowers for the next few days, starting tonight. It’s cold out there!

Legal Action FILED – Important please read…

THE CCFR HAS COMMENCED LEGAL ACTION OPPOSING THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT’S FIREARMS BAN

May 26, 2020, Calgary, AB

Today the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights filed an Application in Federal Court in opposition to the recent firearm ban announced by the minority Liberal government on May 1. This ban was brought into effect by an Order in Council made by the Governor in Council amending the regulation that classifies firearms in Canada. The CCFR’s Application asks the Federal Court to strike down the amended regulation on the grounds that:

1. The regulation is invalid, unlawful, and outside of the scope of powers the Criminal Code could have delegated to the Governor in Council;
2. The regulation and the means by which is was created and amended is unconstitutional;
3. The regulation and its effect breaches each of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Bill of Rights, and section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982;
4. The exercise of the regulation-making power by the Governor in Council was and is irrational, and contrary to clear fact and all available evidence; and
5. Specifically, the firearms purported to be banned by this Order in Council are obviously suitable for hunting and sporting purposes in Canada, because that is exactly what we have been doing with them for decades.

Following the Order in Council, the RCMP began making amendments to the Firearms Reference Table (“FRT”), changing the classification of hundreds of firearms to “prohibited”, thereby unilaterally writing law and creating criminals out of law-abiding Canadians. Accordingly, the CCFR is asking the Court to declare that these purported “bans by FRT” are of no force or effect, both for similar reasons as applied to the regulation above, as well as the fact that the RCMP simply have no legal power to unilaterally make laws reclassifying firearms in Canada and creating criminals out of Canadians. This is especially troubling given that the RCMP aren’t even notifying the affected Canadians about these unilateral reclassifications.

Because the firearms affected by the regulation and the “bans by FRT” are in fact reasonable for use in Canada for hunting and sporting purposes, the CCFR is asking the Court for a declaration of that, and also for a consequential declaration that all of these firearms are to be deemed to be classified as non-restricted for all purposes, and therefore may be enjoyed by Canadians for both hunting and sporting purposes.

In order to protect the interests of Canadians from irreparable harm in the interim, the CCFR is also asking the Court to grant an injunction staying the effect of both the regulation and the “ban by FRT”, until these matters can be properly adjudicated.

This court action is the first in a series of actions planned by the CCFR to defend the rights, freedoms and liberty of law-abiding Canadians.

A copy of the Notice of Application can be found here.

Blair bans 12-gauge, 10-gauge shotguns and hunting rifles! CSSA Post

Blair bans 12-gauge, 10-gauge shotguns and hunting rifles!

Blair bans 12-gauge, 10-gauge shotguns and hunting rifles!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 05, 2020

The Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA) and the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) demand the immediate withdrawal of the flawed Order in Council.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister Bill Blair looked Canadian gun owners in the eye last Friday and said they would not take guns suitable for hunting away from us.

Minister Blair is either too inept to comprehend the scope of his regulations…or he lied to the Government and Canadians.

In the legal opinion of our firearms legal team – headed by Edward Burlew L.L.B., one of the foremost experts in Canadian firearms law – Blair banned almost every modern 12-gauge and 10-gauge shotgun in Canada with removable chokes because they exceed the maximum bore diameter of 20 mm as defined in SOR/2020-96.

It is estimated there 1.5 – 2 million of these common hunting firearms in Canada.

As well, many large bore hunting rifles – some more than 100 years old and valued at more than $100,000 have become prohibited. None of these firearms are semi-automatic or “military style.” They encompass common bolt-action rifles such as the .460 Weatherby, break-open single and double rifles. These firearms are captured because the powerful cartridges they shoot – designed to humanely dispatch the largest game animals. PURE hunting rifles.

Canada’s firearms industry body, the CSAAA, is advising retailers to stop sales of “large hunting calibre, non semi-automatic rifles such as the Weatherby Mark V .460 as these rifles exceed the 10,000 Joules energy restriction.

Remington – 870 Express 12 Gauge Shotgun

Additionally, CSAAA advises retailers to cease sales of many 12-gauge or larger shotguns with removable chokes.”

Despite open hunting seasons across much of Canada, lawful firearms owners should refrain from using 12-gauge or larger shotguns with removable chokes or large calibre rifles capable or exceeding the government’s energy ceiling.

Those firearms are PROHIBITED and may not be used or transports for any reason.

Intentional likes or incompetent mistakes? You decide.

The Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA) and the Canadian shooting Sports Association (CSSA) demand the immediate withdrawal of the Governments’s flawed Order in Council and the immediate removal of Minister Blair from the Public Safety file.
