Canada’s National Firearms Association kicked off 2021 by sending out a postcard across Canada in hopes of reaching many Canadians. The target audience was firearms owners who may not engage in social media to let them know they are not alone. The post card was distributed widely in hopes of driving many Canadians to our website to learn about current firearms laws and the devastating Order in Council of May 1, 2020. It is important as many Canadians as possible understand this OIC does not enhance public safety but will be a tax burden they will be saddled with.

Since the launch of the postcard “You Are Not Alone” we have had great engagement from both firearms owners and non firearms owners

Featured in the post card is Cassy Parker-Premack, owner/operator of K.K.S Tactical Supplies who will face great financial loss due to the Order In Council. The government banning the sale and use of more than 1500 different models of firearms they have inaccurately labeled “Military Style Assault Rifles,” is a huge blow for firearm’s businesses and enthusiasts alike.

Shortly after the OIC was announced Canada’s National Firearms Association went to work, preparing to challenge the Trudeau government on the unjustified OIC that does nothing more than strip legal law abiding firearms owners of their property. Hunting and sporting activities and the role firearms play in these activities is a part of our great Canadian culture. Sheldon Clare, under the direction of Solomon Friedman, set out to find a partner in this fight. Canada’s National Firearms Association felt strongly about partnering with Cassy to demonstrate the deep financial impact this OIC is having on business owners in addition to representing the loss of enjoyment to sports shooters, hunters and collectors.

Mr Clare, an avid shopper at K.K.S Tactical Supplies approached Cassy about the partnership, offering to stand proudly together against the OIC with the NFA sheltering the financial cost of waging this battle. Mrs. Parker-Premack accepted and retained the services of Mr. Solomon Friedman and that is how the fight began. The NFA at the time of this publication is still awaiting confirmation from the courts that their application to intervene has been accepted.

Friedman intends to call evidence to demonstrate the firearms banned under the regulation (SOR/2020-96) “are reasonable for use in Canada for hunting or sporting purposes” and “do not pose a disproportionate risk to public safety.”

The NFA, Cassy Parker-Premack and the entire firearms community are standing by waiting for the federal courts to set a date to start these proceedings. This could be one of the biggest court battles that Canadians will be watching and we are proud to be on the front lines.
