MP Bob Zimmer supported us and now he is getting slammed hard by the media. They smell blood. The latest CSSA e-news just came out which mentions this and it got me thinking that perhaps it would be nice if Mr. Zimmer heard from us directly. So I just sent him this email:


Sir,

My signature is on petition e-111. That petitionís validity is the same today as it was before the horrible tragedy in Orlando. As the CSSAís Tony Bernardo said in an article recently, if the AR-15 was a brand new model of rifle coming into Canada today, it would come through the RCMP labís classification process as a non-restricted rifle. So I thank you for sponsoring and presenting the petition and know that I stand with you now and in October 2019.

Sincerely,
Doug_M

Mr. Zimmer's email address is: Bob.Zimmer@parl.gc.ca

Great idea Doug! MIne is in BZ's inbox now.
I felt it was worthy of a slight modification as a nod to the recently adopted CPC position on firearms

Sir,

My signature is on petition e-111. That petition’s validity is the same today as it was before the horrible tragedy in Orlando. As the CSSA’s Tony Bernardo said in an article recently, if the AR-15 was a brand new model of rifle coming into Canada today, it would come through the RCMP lab’s classification process as a non-restricted rifle. The fact that the Liberal government sat on the petition until an unfortunate event in another country gained media attention, indicates clearly once again what their agenda is concerning firearms generally. So I thank you for sponsoring and presenting the petition and know that I stand with you now and in October 2019.

Sincerely,

Send this man some support. Certain parties will use this event against him at every opportunity.

Unfortunately, this could have an adverse effect on his career.

He stood up for us when he had the opportunity. Now we have opportunity to stand up for him. Do it.

I sent this last Wednesday:

Hello Mr. Zimmer,

I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for your support of Canadian gun owners. I understand that in the wake of the tragic Orlando shooting the Liberal government has sprung at the opportunity to dismiss the petition and it’s 25,000 + signatories. This is unfortunate but not at all surprising given their track record. I also understand that several news publications have taken to attacking you for your support of the petition. Please know that while the leftist media may jump at any opportunity to attack the Conservative party, Canada’s firearms community truly appreciates the work that you’ve done and will continue to stand with you because of your efforts.

Thanks again Mr. Zimmer,

I fired off a e-mail to him a few days ago. Thanked him for his support, guaranteed his party a solid yes vote next election and will be sending the CPC a donation in his honour. If every law abiding firearm owner donated $10.00 to the CPC they would have a substantial war chest to hammer the Turd and his minions into the dirt.

Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, released the following statement:

“As a Member of Parliament, part of my duty is to ensure that the voices of all Canadians are heard in Parliament. This includes presenting petitions of citizens in the House of Commons.”

“Six months ago Mr. Bennett asked for my assistance in ensuring that his petition would be able to be presented in the House of Commons. I agreed and his petition was posted on the e-Petition website and received 25,249 signatures – the highest number of signatures for an e-Petition in Canadian history when it was tabled in May 2016.”

“The petition states:

We, the undersigned, Lawful Firearm Owners of Canada, request (or call upon) the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to Re-classify the Armalite Rifle – 15 back to non-restricted status so we can once again use this rifle to lawfully participate in the Canadian cultural practices of hunting.

“The petition is not asking for easier access to firearms. To obtain a restricted or non-restricted firearm one must go through a rigorous process which includes applying for a firearms licence, going through a thorough screening process and police background checks, and going through the necessary firearms safety training courses.”

“I support the Canadian outdoors traditions of hunting, fishing and sports shooting. I will continue to support a system that provides safe, licensed firearms ownership for law-abiding Canadians, while also ensuring that criminals do not have easy access to firearms.”
