A judge in Kenora has thrown the book at gun registry challenger Bruce Montague. The former Dryden gunsmith was handed an 18 month prison sentence in Kenora court Tuesday morning.
Montague was found guilty in December on 26 of 53 charges involving gun licenses, after being arrested by police in late 2004. The charges included the unauthorized possession and careless storage of non-restricted firearms, explosives and restricted firearms. Montague's lawyer had been seeking a period of house arrest. The prison sentence includes a lifetime firearms ban.
Montague launched a constitutional challenge of the federal Firearms Act last October but his bid was rejected. He earlier said he would take his fight all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, no matter what sentence was handed down on Tuesday.
My comments to the Thunderbay source:
He did NOTHING to hurt anyone.. He was convicted of "Paper Crimes". To
give a 'gunsmith', who has done NOTHING to hurt or threaten anyone, a
'lifetime' firearms ban is beyond punishment and borders on Government
Everyone of his 'paper' crimes was perfectly legal a few
years ago, until paranoid, ignorant liberals, under pressure to "do
something" about crime, started attacking the law abiding target
shooters and hunters because they were too busy pandering to their
criminal base of voters.
We don't have a Justice system in Canada, we
have a revolving door Legal Industry that keeps putting REAL criminals
back on the street where they can keep the wheels of this legal industry
moving, and it just makes me sick!!!
