Dear fellow supporters:
I listened with interest as Paul Martin announced his plan to ban all
handguns in Canada. This is so typical of the Liberals, to sell us a law
under false pretences. When the Liberals wrote the Firearms Act (formerly
known as Bill C-68), they assured us "The Firearms Act is about licensing
and registration, not confiscation." (quote from Justice Minister Anne
McLellan). That was in 1998 when I was interviewed alongside her about the
debate on Gun Control.
I maintained then, and now, that our gun control laws are specifically
designed to take away guns (all guns) from the law-abiding segment of
society. That was the hidden agenda that they are now trying to put into
Something else happens when you allow a law to stand that can take away a
person's LEGALLY owned guns. It paves the way for them to take away ANY
personal property you may have. Just look at how the government is taking
away my home just because they don't like my legal challenge to what I see
as a bad law. Canadians are losing their property rights at an alarming
rate. How much do you value your property?
Mark my words. If this ban goes through we will see an INCREASE in gun
violence not a decrease. That is what happens everywhere in the world where
they try to ban guns. I'd love to expand on this but there isn't enough room
in this editorial. I'll give you this to think about though; "How many guns
do you think the criminals will turn in?!?!"
I find it disgusting that Paul Martin has so little regard for others
people's property. He is willing to sacrifice our property for his own
political gains. The really sad part is that it will do nothing to improve
public safety or crime control.
Let's make sure the public is aware of this Liberal deceit during this
