I just met with Rob Anders who is seeking the Conservative nomination for the new federal riding of Bow River. One has to do with the Protection of Private Property in Canada and the second to call a judicial inquiry into the High River Gun Grab. Print, sign and mail postage free. And SHARE!!!

I love the property rights language but honestly, you'll never get that past the provinces. The CPC would have to have some big stick over them to get enough to agree to that. Remember - they'd lose their powers to take land they need as well.

Awesome. It looks like Rob Anders' website is up too. I'm glad with the recent reforms he helped make for the firearms act. I'm gonna donate to his campaign. https://robanders.nationbuilder.com/donate

Yes, this will go nowhere unless they provide distinction between 'Real property' i.e. real estate (land) so that roads, rails, airports, etc. can be constructed with expropriation where necessary; and other private property, like fishing rods, boats, golf clubs, skies, firearms, go-carts, parachutes, etc. It is this later list that, in my opinion, is our real concern.

It looks like he has a new firearms petition up too. http://www.voteanders.ca/firearms_petition

Common Sense Reforms
With your action on my last petition we were able to get common sense reforms in the firearms act from our government. Here is a list of the common sense reforms:

The decision to reclassify the Swiss Arms and CZ-858 rifles has been rescinded.
There will be a grace period at the end of the five-year licence for renewal.
The possession only licence (POL) will be merged with the possession and acquisition licence (PAL).
The Authorization to Transport certificate will be merged with a restricted licence.
Chief Firearms Officers will be reined in.
Do these reforms sound familiar?

They should because it was your petitions and efforts to contact your representatives that made these changes happen.

Today, I'm asking the government to take the reforms one step further so Canadians can safely enjoy the shooting sports. I'm asking you to sign this petition that bring forward the next wave of amendments to the firearms act.

To the House of Commons, in Parliament assembled: we ask that the following actions be taken:

1. Encourage more public ranges so more citizens can safely enjoy the shooting sports.

2. Remove the restricted classification arbitrarily classified as restricted.

3. Lower the waiting period for a licence from 28 days to 14 days.

4. Increase the term of a licence from 5 years to 10.

5. Enshrine the right to defend your home.

Therefore, we ask the House of Commons to make further common sense reforms to the firearms act.
