Hello fellow Canadians and please join the CCFR to protect your rights. Next it may be your gas using vehicles.

Not that fast but it might happened. Like some people I know said, internal combustion engines will be made illegal, we will probably see cars that are computer operated made mandatory, besides ones used by the government.

As stands that will be hard to do considering all the logging and mining done on the middle of nowhere. Hard to charge electric vehicles in the middle of the bush without a giant gas chugging generator anyways.

Regardless of when citizens should never lose their property including your airsoft items.

Just saw the CTV report with pestobanana at Blackblitz, great job man, you come out as very professional. If only the other guys talking to the medias were as good as you. How we talk to the medias is probably the most important thing we as a community can do to raise awareness of this mess of a bill.

I remember back in the day when Airsoft tried everything it could to distance itself from real firearms so that it wouldn't get pulled into something like this. As much as we tried it still happened. Sad really....

Ive been doing both, airsoft and real steel for like 15 years now. First they went after real guns, made me having bunch of paperweights, now they are going after another hobby I enjoy - airsoft, During last 2-3 years I havent been actually puling a triger. I've been on comms/admin duties during multi day events. Some times I make freaking soup for them after they come back...

Anything that shoots over 500fps becomes a firearm. For which you would need a PAL. One that I have. If C 21 gets passed I wont be able to legally use airsoft. I do not have a prohibited license nor I will be able to obtain one. If C-21 gets passed - airosft will be moved to prohibited category. No if's or but's. No legal way to go around it, no back "2000's" market. PROHIBITED with a possibility of getting criminally charged. Think about it.

After they banned couple of guns last year I called RCMP just for a fuck of it. Asked how do I register. They had no idea what I was talking about.

Exactly, they can come to you and take your airsoft guns if (WHEN) they want to, and nothing you can do about it.

The best we can hope for is for a government buyback (just giving us our tax money back) on them.

A Petition to the House of Commons is already written, sponsored by a MP and is waiting publishing. This will be pushed out as soon as it is,

There will be a lot of different initiatives: one of the most important ones that is being worked on will be real world political activism and engagement. Working with campaigns in the real world to help get people seated is one of the most powerful things we can do as an individual. A dozen Airsofters showing up to help knock on doors can be the difference in a ridings election. This organization will be ramping up soon too.

Things are happening. If you want to get involved and do something more than writing a letter and hoping there will be plenty of opportunity to do that in the near future.
Folks,

Replying to Delta because I want to keep what he and many other stakeholders are working on relevant.

I am not directly involved with it, but he has assured me there will be opportunities for us all to help.

For now, take all the anger and frustration that we all share mutually, and please do the following:

- Write your MP.

A hand-written mailed letter is best. Follow-up with a phone call. Try your absolute best to get your MP on the phone, or schedule a meeting in addition to voicing your opposition. Let them know why you oppose C-21. Use this to aid you:

https://www.ourcommons.ca/Members/en...caucusId=8781#

- Support the CCFR.

The CCFR is the fastest growing Firearms Rights group in Canada. They have put forward a first-of-it's-kind lawsuit campaign against the recent May 1st OIC measures. They are willing to engage, listen and take support advice from their membership. Most importantly, they openly support and want to help Airsoft. There are membership discounts for students. Let them know you represent the Airsoft community and oppose C-21.

It absolutely can 100% influence it.

We are working on getting this launched ASAP. We as a community are in a unique position because if the ban goes through we are going to have a lot of spare time on our hands. Spending a couple weekends during an election can have a HUGE impact.
