We, the members of The Cape Nova Rifle and Revolver Club are concerned about Bill C-71.
to Mr. Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
Dear Mr. Goodale,
I am writing this letter on behalf of the members of the Cape Nova Rifle and Revolver Club in regards to bill C-71. We have well over 140 members who are comprised of hunters, collectors as well as sport and competition shooters some in which compete at a national level.
We have chosen to write this in opposition of this bill as we feel it unjustly targets our members, our hobbies, our past times and our passions.
This bill does nothing to stop gun violence at the hands of criminals. The only thing it does is make more paper work for the law-abiding firearms owners. We are already the most scrutinized people in the country with daily criminal record and background checks through CPIC. We understand the need for a safe society without gun violence and we do our part as law abiding citizens. Using precious resources to make it more difficult for us law abiding citizens with knee jerk reactions does nothing to stop the violence and illegal actions of actual criminals. Less resources should be used targeting legal firearms owners and more should be spent combating the criminals who don't abide by the laws anyway.
