Do You Think Bill Blair Noticed?
As soon as the writ was dropped Canada’s National Firearms Association came out of the gates swinging. The firearms community cannot take another four years of Justin Trudeau and Bill Blair and their attacks against law abiding firearms owners for nothing more than political gain.
The NFA was very active in the 2019 election. We focussed on swing ridings and were very successful in the riding that was held by Ralph Goodale, Bill Blair’s predecessor as the minister of public safety.
Bill Blair, when first elected, received the nickname, “the minister of nothing”. Shortly after the 2019 election Blair took on the role of public safety minister and found himself with a bunch of new nick names from the firearms community. Blair has targeted law-abiding firearms owners because he says, “they will comply”. This completely ignores the real problem and is a strategy dreamed up by Blair knowing he cannot control the criminals, lacking the manpower both on the street and at the borders. Instead of addressing those issues Blair chooses to try and fear monger Canadian citizens into thinking the legal firearms owners are the problem and that this can be addressed with additional useless regulations. No actions taken in the last six years, under Blairs direction, have done anything to curb the gun violence. In fact, gun violence is as strong as ever and Bill Blairs ‘solution’ of Bill C-21 is nothing more than an attempt to distract Canadians from the real problems at hand.
Canada’s National Firearms Association Is All In
Trudeau has called a snap election in an attempt to grab total power. In response, Canada’s National Firearms Association has launched its largest election based advertising campaign to date. You will see social media ads popping up all over the internet, large electronic signs being display across Canada, and our team speaking frequently and passionately across many mediums. A big focus was the city of Toronto, home to Bill Blair’s riding. The NFA has boots on the grounds and all hands on deck as the directors and members have been out placing CPC yard signs and volunteering to help their local candidates however they can.
The NFA knows this is make it or break it election for the firearms community. Another four years of Trudeau and Blair at the helm will only lead to more firearms being prohibited and further destruction of freedoms.
