TheGunBlog.ca — The latest video by the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights tackles a simple question that gets asked often: We register our cars with the government, so why not register our guns?
TheGunBlog.ca — Canadian gun owners know that “Prohibited” doesn’t mean “prohibited,” since the law classifies some firearms as “Prohibited” even though they are legal.
As of today we also know that “Civil Liberties” doesn’t mean “civil liberties,” since the Canadian Civil Liberties Association hired one of the country’s most radical and vocal opponents of liberties for gun owners as its chief executive.
TheGunBlog.ca — More than two-thirds of Canadians want to ban guns in cities, The Canadian Press reported today, citing the results of a poll it ordered. How about you? Take the poll below by TheGunBlog.ca. Continue reading
Paul Rogan, the founding editor of Canadian Access to Firearms, wasn’t always a libertarian thinker and activist. The 75-year-old campaigned for the socialists as a young adult in the 1960s in his homeland of France, before discovering the writings of Ayn Rand and experiencing a political conversion.
TheGunBlog.ca met with Rogan today in Whitehorse, Yukon, to talk about guns, politics, and his monthly subscription-only newsletter, which he describes as the most-private way to buy and sell firearms in Canada.
The Canadian government reminded gun owners today via its Criminal Law Policy Section that it regards the acquisition and possession of firearms as a privilege, not a right.
I arrived in Atlanta today for the annual meeting of the U.S. National Rifle Association, which describes itself as “America’s longest-standing civil rights organization.” As far as I’m aware, the group’s more than 5 million members make it the biggest shooter’s rights association in the world. Some 80,000 people are expected at this year’s gathering, more than SHOT Show.
The following was written by Steve Barta in December 2015 after a shooting massacre in San Bernardino, California, and tweeted to the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights. The CCFR replied today, just as news was breaking of a shooting attack against police officers in Paris.
The Canadian Shooting Sports Association did a superb point-by-point takedown of a CBC video on gun laws packed with errors, misleading suggestions and possibly a wrongful confiscation by law-enforcement officers.
Police in Nova Scotia have invented a new crime: posting photos of yourself with guns or anything that looks like a gun.
Canadian governments have tended to disarm law-abiding people and restrict or ban firearms, leaving us defenceless or gravely disadvantaged if attacked. Other countries want to help their citizens protect themselves and each other.
The RCMP’s attack on owners of the popular Ruger 10/22 small-calibre rifle is prompting Canadian gun-rights groups to unite in opposition.
The RCMP plans to reclassify 10/22 magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of the .22 LR cartridge as “prohibited devices,” Calibre Magazine said July 18, potentially leading to criminal charges for anyone who owns, transports or sells them. Firearms-rights associations said the move isn’t allowed under Canadian laws and regulations.
“Canada’s national police force has chosen to continue its unabated attack on our nation’s law-abiding firearms community,” the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) said July 22 on its website. “We are currently examining several options with our sister organizations and members of the industry, and we will need your participation.”
Today’s celebration of Thanksgiving in the U.S. reminds me of two things: I am thankful for my life, and I want to avoid being a turkey who expects the good times to last forever.
The “turkey problem” was popularized by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his 2007 book, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable.
Here’s something to remember as we elect the next government of Canada: the Ontario Liberal Party wants to ban firearms.
