I havent been active in over a decade but still collect , I just joined the CCFR , it is easy , its only 40 dollars , you can do it online , they seem like our best hope , if everyone joined it would really help fund their efforts , we all want to to rant about it & are frustrated with it , but the bottom line is that it is going to take a team of people that know what they are doing to fight this & that takes lawyers & money so I think its the best thing we can do right now

More I think about it more I'm seeing how this is aimed at airsoft. These things can actually be used by people who are giving "pro airsoft" interviews. How come when about 1500 firearms got moved to a prohibited category owners were offered a buy back option, maybe not at full price but buy back was offered, or owners were told that if they choose not to surrender property they will be grandfathered in with 12.X (prohibited firearm licenses issued to them). Those sub categories of 12 license will not allow us to trade in any other firearms but ones we already own but it will allow us to keep what we have, even if ATT will be declined and we wont be able to take guns out to a range. We will still going to be able to keep them. Government went full ape shit with airsoft. Prohibited, everything gets seized if cop asks you about it. No license available even if one wants to get it in order to keep their stuff. It looks like they are going after airsoft while giving a slack to "assault rifles" as they call them.

Agree^^

This bill simply s*it on airsoft and offers only what has been rumored to come for the last 2 years (handgun legislations).

Thing that just outright pisses people off is how this is just pushed under. There was zero mention of this at all on Tuesday and yet they leave it for the public to look into.

Silently strike the community while distracting us with other legislations.

This is a bigger message than any gun grab in my eyes.

I'm not sure if I send a note to my MP if it'll make any headway. My MP is Navdeep Bains who's on his way out and a Liberal to boot. Thoughts?

Send it anyway. My local MP is a liberal and I mailed him voicing my displeasure with the bill. They need to see the negative reactions as well.

Oh, "handgun legislation" when it comes to municipal ban is crumbling. Libs are loosing a battle on that front. 4 provinces already said they will oppose. I can see BC and maybe one or two maritime provinces bending over but rest of the country will fight it. Too bad this airsoft ban thing is on a federal level. Speaking of federal vs provincial/municipal bans. This one is also very strange. Government has an ability to impose prohibition on all handguns in this country but chooses to hand over decision making power to mayors. At the same time government goes and bans every other airgun in this country. How does this shit work? Are they afraid of all the flak they might get for banning all handguns and decided to throw mayors under the bus? I don't get it.

Well the good news today:

NPD and Bloc Quebecois are against bill C-21 that targeting airsoft and paintball! I think we are still waiting for the Green party right now.

The green party apparently has a free vote, no party line policy on this.

Hey all,

Thanks to the hard work by all of the ASIC stakeholders, there is now a House of Commons E-Petition, E-3201. This E-Petition is sponsored by Conservative Party M.P Terry Dowdall:

https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/P...etition=e-3201

I would like to remind everyone this E-Petition varies greatly from the Change.org petition floating around. It is directly sponsored by a Government M.P and thus will be read in the house of commons.

Once signed, you will receive an automated reply to your email requesting you verify your identity. It is of critical importance you follow this step, otherwise your e-signature will mean nothing. Therefore, keep an eye out after signing, and check those spam filters.

For example, mine was sent to spam. The email looks like this:

SHARE.
