Christmas Gift Ideas for Canadian Gunnies, Bribery Edition

Santa Claus With GunTheGunBlog.ca — Looking for a Christmas gift for someone who doesn’t have a gun licence? Here are a few ideas for Canadian shooters and hunters. Some of them have strings attached.

The ideas are pretty simple, a mix of generous giving that will bring joy, plus a light sprinkling of bribery incentives. Because the best way to advance our rights is to expand the community of people who value them.


Dear _____,

Merry Christmas!

You know that gun you like to shoot? It’s yours as soon as you show me your firearm licence. I’ll help you in any way I can.

Peace and Love,

Santa Claus

OR

Dear _____,

This card is worth $___ in guns and gear at Oscar’s Outdoors. It’s yours as soon as you get your firearm licence.

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S. Charlie is holding a spot for you next weekend.

OR

Dear _____,

For your present this year, I’m inviting you to the shooting range. How about Wednesday?

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus


Why not give the gift after they pass the CFSC/CRFSC safety courses?

  • Because a lot of people pass the course, and never apply for the licence.

Why ask the gift recipient for a “Restricted” firearm Possession and Acquisition Licence?

  • Options. An RPAL opens more options for what you can buy and own than a “Non-restricted” licence. A lot of the newest, funnest activities require “Restricted” firearms, such as handguns and AR-15 rifles.
  • Incentives. It’s a tiny mental and logistical step to do the extra training for a “Restricted” licence when you’ve got the momentum of having just completed the “Non-restricted” course. It can be a huge hurdle to restart the process later, which is why many people don’t.
  • Interests. The more of us have RPALs and the objects they allow us to own, the more likely governments are to try and keep us happy.

Merry Christmas, no strings attached.
