Trudeau Liberals declare war on Canada's

law-abiding gun community

Oshawa, ON – On Friday, May 1, 2020, the Liberal government of Justin Trudeau launched an unwarranted attack against our community. With the stroke of a pen, 1500 guns were instantly banned.


No reasons were given other than Trudeau's usual warm and fuzzy platitudes and virtue signalling on a subject he knows absolutely nothing about. While this is hardly a new role for him, the evil minions that do his bidding even went so far as to disable the Firearms Reference Tables for an entire day to prevent the transfer of firearms.


It was an unwarranted declaration of war against Canada's firearms community.


Yesterday was a whirlwind of government briefings, media interviews, consultations with our General Counsel, political analysis and dealing with hundreds of phone calls, emails and inquiries.


The government said there is a two-year amnesty and, during that time, they will decide on a plan forward. That plan may include confiscations, buying your guns with your own money and possible grandfathering. But so far, there is nothing but their promise to seek solutions – for them.


We urge you not to over-react. Stay cool. Stay strong.


DO NOT TURN IN YOUR FIREARMS


The Trudeau government made some foolish mistakes implementing these Orders in Council. We will use these errors against them in the coming months, but do not become complacent. The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau hates us, and they will continue to demonize us and denigrate our character at every turn.


To them, there is no room in this country for you or your culture of safety, freedom and responsibility. Do not forget this in the struggle ahead.


We need you with us in the coming days. Our strength is our members and your support and hard work will be critical to our survival.


Most of all, do not give up hope. The Trudeau Liberals have fired their volley. Now it's our turn.


WHAT IS CSSA DOING ABOUT IT?


The question on the minds of our members is simple. What is the CSSA doing about it?


Plenty.


Today’s announcement, while repulsive and stupid, is not a surprise. The Liberals have talked about it for over two years. The only surprise is they would attempt to jam it down the throats of Canadians in the midst of a global pandemic – and when Parliament is all but shut down.


First, we continue to do interviews with media across the country to explain some really simple facts to Canadians. As those interviews are made available on the web, we will share them with you.


Second, we’re working with our General Counsel, analysing all legal avenues and potential options, both legal and legislative. There are many potential avenues for striking this down in the courts, and we’re examining them all.


Third, we’re working with politicians across the political spectrum to educate them about the many pitfalls contained in today’s announcement. As you can well imagine, the Conservative Party is all over this, and we’re working with them at every level to ensure they know what we know, and vice versa.


Fourth, we are developing more communications vehicles to educate Canadians about why this approach to public policy does not and cannot work.


Fifth, we’re examining every aspect of today’s announcement to identify all the holes in it – and there are many.


Will we stop this gun ban overnight? No, of course not. But if even one of the many avenues we’ve already identified pan out, we are well-positioned to stop this garbage in its tracks.


So stay tuned… there is much to be figured out over the coming days… and all of it will be communicated to you as soon as we are able.


Until then, stay safe and keep your powder dry.

When this email came through this morning, I read it and started to roll my eyes about the "declaring war" part.
But after some thought, it is pretty accurate.
The most sickening part of this whole thing is that law abiding gun owners are being treated as the enemy. And I don't mean that in a metaphorical sense. We are being treated as an enemy that they need to conquer.
The proof of this is the part of the oic where they talk about the fact that people will flock to other guns once these ones are banned, so they plan to ban those too once they see what they are.
I thought in this country we were all supposed to be on the same side?
For the sake of argument, let's say that banning guns was for the safety of all canadians, and that's why they did it. If that was the case, you'd decide what needed to go, let everyone know, and make it happen. Not ban a few, wait for everyone to buy replacements, and then ban the replacements. That is economic warfare. The government of canada is at war with it's citizens. I just wish there was a way to say it that didnt automatically sound like an over the top exaggeration.

Law-abiding gets us nowhere. Let it go.

It doesn't make us ethically superior to obey unethical authority. We are fundamental enemies to these people and there is no appeasing them. They only deny it because time is on their side.

Law-abiding

As of this morning, about 50,000 of us who have done no wrong are under penalty of criminal conviction. Postponed by a couple years.
i.e. we're criminals, who didn't commit a criminal act. We had an act that was specifically legal, redefined under us as being criminal.

Best option is to join the CPC , get involved , and let your voices be heard . Trudeau only has a minority govt. ; and he is leading Canada into a major recession ......his Govt. will not last much longer .

Not all citizens, just social conservatives. Instead of trying to get rid of us to satiate your inferiority complex, embrace us as those doing most of the work for common good.

The most sickening part of this whole thing is that law...

The sickening and perverse part is that the law now differentiates legal possession along racial lines... One step further along the reverse apartheid path, Socialism!

That’s funny.
It’s been “our turn” for 50 years since the attack began with PETs bill c51.
... then it was our turn after c17 then c68 then Quebec bill 9 then c71.
Still waiting. :popcorn:

Sorry Tony, the only thing that will stop the insatiable appetite of the statists is a full-on revolution.
