I would also reccommend against a broad based unco-ordinated letter writing campaign. For this to be effective theres must one message, and everyone must be "on message" every time they speak out or communicate.
PS- United we stand divided we fall did not originate with Marx, but the last guy we should be quoting or mentioning on this issue is Karl Marx.
Which is why I've been calling for the revival of CAC (Canadian Airsoft Coalition) for how long now?
At this point, I hope to have a section set up for CAC on WP's new website when it comes up (soon we hope), as a place we can use for posting of form letters for MPs, a copy of the options paper, and if possible a media kit.
At this point, i would also be nice to get some of the former members of CAC (namley KD, you were invaluable) and Peter Kang back around here. I don't give a shit what you think about his bussinesses, but Peter has had a LOT of dealings with CBSA and other agencies over the years. I imagine his information would be invaluable.
I would ask that people please hold off on mailing MPs until we have a general form letter re-drafted. I would also ask that anyone under the age of 18 please refrain from contacting ANYONE regarding this. The last thing we want is for the government, or other gov't agencies to be thinking that we are a bunch of minors (who incidently, can't vote or purchase AS) who just want this kit to cause trouble.
