Dear Prime Minister: No Gun Ban
31 Jul 2018
TheGunBlog.ca — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will decide in mid-August whether to ban handguns across Canada, the Globe and Mail reported last week.
Contact the PM today. Don’t let him turn you into a “former” gun owner.
- You can send an e-mail, write a letter, make phone calls, or all three.
- Share this widely with your gun club, family, friends, etc. Anyone and everyone can stand up and speak up for their rights and their interests, and the rights and interests of their family and friends. You don’t need a PAL to be a pal.
