Real gun owners have been dealing with this for the last 30 years in progressive waves of registration and restriction. It does not get you anywhere.
I understand where you are coming from and unfortunately, in Canada there isn't a power-house as strong as the NRA as there is here in the US.
Okay, taking your point... but what alternative or suggestion(s) do you have then?
What I am trying to do here is "cut to the chase" with these posts... too many people write sob stories about the sky falling while others have an angry tiff with the government - what choices do we have as a community? What steps must we take to make sure our sport stays alive and we don't get personal seizures or arrests? Who or whom do we need to speak to regarding this?
