“Please read this article from Nicolas Johnson, owner (, writer and gun advocate for all of us. It is a great perspective of Canadians privileges/rights to ownership. I encourage all of you to make a donation to TheGunBlog, as Nicolas is constantly fighting for your right to own and use a gun. Without the strong voice of Nicolas, we would all be in worse shape then we currently are. When most people are standing around at the range, complaining about the Trudeau government, and making uni[n]formed comments, Nicolas is knee deep in examining the facts and pushing back on the Trudeau Liberal party. Help him, help us. Even $20 bucks, everyone can afford that.” —Rob Gaw, 28 October 2022
