We finally have an appeal court date set for Tuesday June 18, 2013. This will be held at the appeal court in Toronto but I don't yet know which court room.
This appeal is trying to overturn the court order to have most of my gun collection destroyed. There is roughly $100,000 worth of firearms that I have collected over the past 30 years. This represents the bulk of my savings as I approach retirement and we are desperately trying to get the court to agree that I should be able to at least sell these firearms. None of these firearms were involved in any crimes. They were merely part of my collection as I protested the gun laws by not renewing my license or registering my guns. There doesn't appear to be any rational reason for why they should be destroyed.
On a further note, my wife and I would like to thank you all for continuing to support this fight even though we lost the constitutional challenge. This fight has become much more personal as we struggle to remain solvent in the aftermath of our charter challenge. I guess that is the whole point isn't it? The government wants to send a clear message to all of you, that if you try to stand up for your rights by peacefully protesting an unjust law, they will not only tell the court to rule against you but they will make sure the rest of your life is ruined!
Thanks again for your support in this fight that is now so personal. It's wonderful to have such dedicated support! Who knows, if we win it may set a precedent that will help other gun owners in the future?
Yours in Liberty,
