Eric Sillanpaa received the following note from Maxime Bernier one of the candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada. I have been asked to post this as it may be of interest to our members:
Eric, the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights has graded the gun policies of all the candidates.
I’m the only one who got an A+.
It’s because my policy is the biggest change in favour of gun owners.
And it’s something we can win on.
Double firearms license length from 5 to 10 years;
Repeal all magazine capacity restrictions;
Classify firearms on function, not appearance;
Make any classification changes go through Parliament, not the RCMP and cabinet;
Reimburse gun owners for loss of property from previous government gun grabs, and protect firearms owners in the future;
Make safety courses more available across the country, especially rural Canada.
With my firearms legislation, many popular guns like the AR-15 would become non-restricted, because gun legislation wouldn’t be based on fear anymore.
The Ruger 10/22 magazine issue would be gone.
A trip to the range will mean you get to practice shooting, not reloading.
