E-petition from MP James Bezan

From: james.bezan.c1a(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)parl.gc.ca

Date: January 23, 2020 at 8:47:44 AM CST
To: office(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)jamesbezan.com">office(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)jamesbezan.com
Subject: Online e-petition

I’m writing to request that your organization circulates to your membership and patrons an online e-petition that opposes the Liberal’s plan to ban “military-style assault rifles” through an Order in Council.  In less than one month this e-petition has garnered over 86,000 signatures. Clearly, Canadians oppose the Liberals’ proposal to implement their gun-control strategy in a multi-step process.

Conservatives are committed to ensuring that Canadians are safe and secure in their homes and in their communities.  The Liberals soft on crime approach has done nothing to address rising gang and gun violence, or the drug crisis that has already taken nearly 14,000 lives. Forcing law-abiding Canadians to follow even more laws will not reduce crime. Instead the Liberals should focus on gangs, criminals, and illegal firearms.

Conservatives want to see a plan that includes:

  • Support for police anti-gang and gun units
  • Youth prevention programs
  • Action on rural crime
  • Tougher sentences for violent offenders
  • Support for courts and prosecutors
  • CBSA Firearms Smuggling Task Force
  • Increased access to mental health and addictions treatments

I encourage all concerned Canadians to sign the e-petition before February 15th, 2020 through the following weblink:  https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-2341.

Sincerely,

Member of Parliament

CCFR urgent message to Canadian Gun Owners

Dear Club Executives and Range Operators,

An urgent message from Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights [CCFR] who have produced a short video for all gun owners in Canada to view.

https://youtu.be/uecUrs7JaMg

Help spread this message in hopes that a large group of people can do just a little bit to help instead of the small group of people who are currently giving everything they can. This will result in meaningful opposition to the Liberal’s unprecedented firearm ban.

For more information on the CCFR, visit us at www.firearmrights.ca and click “Why Join”.

Thank You for Your Consideration,

Rod Giltaca

Firearms Bans, buy-back programs and more

Afternoon BRGFA Members

Please read the below email from Manitoba Wildlife Federation’s Noel Linsey and see the attached 2 documents he has attached to this email. This is important information regarding the current Federal Government’s position on implementing firearm bans. You do not need to be a member of MWF to participate, just a legal firearm’s owner.

Pass it along to whomever you believe needs to read this and act on it.

Thank you

Colette Marr

Subject: Firearms Bans, Buyback Programs and more. The MWF needs your help.

The Federal Government has renewed its promise to strengthen gun control by allowing municipalities and communities to ban handguns, as well as promising to ban “military style” firearms and implement a firearms buyback program.

The MWF is extremely opposed to this approach as it has targeted one of the single most vetted groups of Canadians – legal and law abiding firearms owners. Unfortunately, due to current CRA rules, the MWF is unable to fight this battle in a capacity that would allow us to effectively lobby the government on behalf of our members. We risk losing our charitable status and risk losing grant funding opportunities that essentially help pay for hunter and angler education and recruitment programs.

Through our affiliate clubs however, we have an excellent opportunity to oppose the Federal Government’s new firearms control policies. We also have the opportunity to demand, as legal and law abiding firearms owners that our Provincial Government supports us in the same way (or more so) that the Alberta Government has. Please watch this short video for more information: https://www.facebook.com/jason.j.nixon/videos/585546525533007/

We are strong believers in the safe use of firearms and firearms education. We are also strong believers in not demonizing firearms based on looks alone, and instead believe that clear, transparent and common sense firearms laws are part of the solution. Further, we believe that all levels of Government should be addressing the root causes of violent crime in Canada, namely social issues, criminal gangs, mental health and poverty. Finally, Government should be investing in tougher penalties for straw purchasers as well as methods to curb the illegal import of firearms from the United States.

Attached are two letter templates. We are asking you to please present these letters to your members, in hopes that they will lead this charge, sign these letters and send them to their appropriate Members of Parliament and Members of the Legislative Assembly.

If your club has an active website and/or social media account, please consider posting these letters so members and the public can easily access, download and send them out as well.

While many of these new laws will initially affect sport shooters, this sets a dangerous precedence for further and more wide ranging bans. It is time for us to use our voice, stand up for sport shooting, plinking, and greater firearms owner communities and support one another in any way we can.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at the MWF office at 204-633-5967 or email us info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)mwf.mb">info(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)mwf.mb. We will assist you in any way we can.
