“I read every word you publish.”

—Sales manager for a major independent Canadian firearm retailer


“… influential …”

—Bryan, British Columbia


I started this website to save my guns and defend the values that are symbolized by my guns.

A lot of what I saw in politics and the media went against those values. So in 2015, I created a blog. It felt like a good idea for a guy who used to work for an influential media company as a senior reporter and editor, and once ran as a political candidate.

My first follower was my girlfriend. At the end of the first year, I had about 14 subscribers, including her, my father and me.


Today, thanks to you, TheGunBlog.ca is one of the strongest voices for gun owners and gun rights in Canada. It’s also a remarkable success of independent citizen journalism and advocacy.

TheGunBlog.ca is:

  • Quoted by Members of Parliament, Senators and media.
  • Respected by a federal agency that deals with gun owners.
  • Trusted by the biggest names in the shooting community and the firearm industry.
  • Read by tens of thousands of concerned citizens across the country, from active or retired military, police and law-enforcement personnel … to big-game hunters and world-class competitors … to ordinary PAL holders (like me).
