Dear (name of MP),
I was shocked to hear that the federal Liberal government intends to allow banning of legally owned handguns in cities, and intends to ban semi-automatic rifles across Canada. I own both of these, and I am strongly opposed to such a plan. My ownership of firearms and my use of them has nothing whatsoever to do with gang violence and criminal activity.
The government’s proposals would make me a criminal. I have spent many thousands of dollars on my sports shooting activities – ammunition, parts, accessories and range membership are all expensive aspects of my activities that make a major contribution to the Canadian economy. If I live in a city with a gun ban, do I have to move away in order to keep my property, or even turn down job transfers to such places?
Using my tax dollars to confiscate my property is nothing short of offensive. My firearms and associated property are valuable and I will not willingly give them up.
In my opinion, which is supported by research (Langmann 2012), and I believe is widespread in the shooting community, most of our gun control merely wastes resources and does nothing to stop criminal activity. Canadian firearms owners are already over regulated. More gun control is not necessary. In fact, many of our gun control laws should be repealed. The money saved could better spent on programs that would save lives and make Canada a better country.
Please do not support the government’s proposal to ban my property and thus make me a criminal.

How is this is going to effect the firearms community?
Blair Expected To Table Legislation
Minister Bill Blair is expected to table legislation on February 16 2021. This could be regarding the buyback program of the May 1st 2020 Order In Council.
Earlier This Week
Other media source have stated the owners of the newly prohibited firearms will have a choice to either participate in selling back their property or keep their property but under very stringent rules.
Federal legislation imminent, but without obligation owners of prohibited weapons will be subject to strict requirements if they wish to keep them. Radio-Canada has learned that the Trudeau government is expected to introduce legislation in the coming days that will establish the buy-back program for assault weapons that were blacklisted last spring. However, this program will not be mandatory. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair has made a series of presentations to various Liberal caucuses over the week to inform them of the upcoming announcement. According to our information, owners of banned military assault weapons (over 1500 models and variants) will not be required to return them to the government in exchange for compensation, but will be subject to strict requirements if they wish to keep them. Among these requirements are that the targeted weapons must be stored securely and cannot be used. The owners of the targeted weapons benefit from an amnesty until April 30, 2022.Last year, Joel Lightbound, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety, pointed out that opposition parties may demand that the buy-back program be mandatory and that this should be taken into consideration by the government, which is in a minority position in the House of Commons.
The Liberals could take this opportunity to announce new measures to combat the proliferation of illegal weapons in Canada. These measures could be added by regulation and would not need to be included in the bill. In fact, Parliamentary Secretary Joel Lightbound stated in writing this evening that the Government’s plan will also include additional resources and introduce tougher penalties for police and border officials to help stop the flow of guns at our borders and to target the illegal trafficking of firearms through criminal detour. It also indicates that tougher laws on safe storage will be introduced to prevent firearms theft. The Government knows that there will not be unanimous support for this option, especially among groups calling for better gun control. It’s not perfect, but that doesn’t mean it won’t pass,” said one Liberal MP. Ottawa hopes to calm the discontent by adding measures that would allow police to respond quickly to cases of violence or imminent threat where an assault weapon is suspected. Lightbound says the proposed legislation will give communities, police, medical professionals, survivors of spousal violence and families the power to sound the alarm when someone may pose a danger to themselves, an identifiable group or a partner.
This is not something firearms owners should be happy about. You have the option to keep your property but will be restricted from using it.vandenhoff.ca
