Proud Canadians stand together in support of law-abiding gun-owners

CCFR is Leading the fight to reverse the unfair Gun Ban in Canada! They are organizing on Saturday, September 12, 2020 @ 1:00pmEST – The Integrity March on Parliament Hill in Ottawa! Be there!

A firearm-rights group is heading to Federal Court to challenge the constitutionality -- and basic logic -- of the Liberal government's recent ban of many assault-style guns.

The CCFR’s Application asks the Federal Court to strike down the amended regulation on the grounds that:

1. The regulation is invalid, unlawful, and outside of the scope of powers the Criminal Code could have delegated to the Governor in Council.
2. The regulation and the means by which it was created and amended is unconstitutional;
3. The regulation and its effect breaches each of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Bill of Rights, and section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982;
4. The exercise of the regulation-making power by the Governor in Council was and is irrational, and contrary to clear fact and all available evidence; and
5. Specifically, the firearms purported to be banned by this Order in Council are obviously suitable for hunting and sporting purposes in Canada, because that is exactly what we have been doing with them for decades.

Following the Order in Council, the RCMP began making amendments to the Firearms Reference Table (“FRT”), changing the classification of hundreds of firearms to “prohibited”, thereby unilaterally writing law and creating criminals out of law-abiding Canadians. Accordingly, the CCFR is asking the Court to declare that these purported “bans by FRT” are of no force or effect, both for similar reasons as applied to the regulation above, as well as the fact that the RCMP simply have no legal power to unilaterally make laws reclassifying firearms in Canada and creating criminals out of Canadians. This is especially troubling given that the RCMP aren’t even notifying the affected Canadians about these unilateral reclassification .

The Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights says the rifles are obviously suitable for hunting and sporting purposes since shooters have been using them this way for decades. Click here to find out or visit: https://firearmrights.ca/en/ccfr-appeals-to-provincial-ags-gun-ban/

WHAT'S NEXT?

The Liberal Government outlawed a wide range of firearms by cabinet order (OIC) on 1st of May, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not hunting or sport shooting.

"Gun crime is on the rise, and too often people are killed or injured because criminals have used military-style assault rifles. These guns are designed to inflict mass casualties and have no place in Canada. Canadians are tired of excuses and know that “thoughts and prayers” don’t make our communities any safer."

The ban that keeps expanding quietly covers some 1,500 models and variants of what the government considers assault-style weapons  meaning they can no longer be legally used, sold or imported.

This simple Act has turned more than 72 000 law abiding gun-owners into a potential criminals. Store clerks at the gun shops are barely able to keep up with the constant new additions to the list. This is truly alarming times.

SIMPLE FACTS

1. In 2017, the rate of hospitalizations entirely caused by alcohol (249 per 100,000) was comparable to the rate of hospitalizations for heart attacks (243 per 100,000) and the rate was thirteen times higher than for opioids. In 2014, alcohol contributed to 14,826 deaths in Canada, representing 22% of all substance use attributable deaths.

With the opioid overdose crisis, concern about teens using electronic cigarettes and our fascination with the legalization of cannabis, our most dangerous legal drug continues to be ignored by Canadian policy-makers.

We have strong legislation and regulation governing tobacco and cannabis sales, marketing and labeling, but the federal government has been asleep at the wheel for years on alcohol policy. Meanwhile, some provincial governments are aggressively loosening restrictions and lowering prices.

From a public health and safety perspective, this makes absolutely no sense. In 2018, using a Health Canada-funded study, we estimated each year some 15,000 deaths, 90,000 hospital admissions and 240,000 years of life lost are directly attributable to alcohol use.

Along with impacts on productivity and crime, the annual economic toll of $15 billion was greater than that from either tobacco use or from cannabis, opioids and all illegal substances combined. On the other side of the ledger, federal and provincial governments collected less than $11 billion in revenues from alcohol in the same year

New research carried out by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) demonstrates that alcohol-related hospitalizations and deaths are on the rise, with 10 Canadians dying in hospitals every day due to harm from substance use, with 75% of these deaths directly related to alcohol use. 

The data also reveals that alcohol contributes to more than half of all hospitalizations linked to substance use, which are also up to 13 times more common than opioid-related hospitalizations.

2. According to this report, there is a 3.1 to 4.7 per cent rise in car accident case. The year 2018 saw an increase in the number of vehicle related fatalities and injuries, however serious injuries went down. 2018 marked the sixth consecutive year with a fatality count below 2,000 and remains among the lowest counts for all three of these casualty groups since these data were first collected by Transport Canada in the early 1970's.

In 2018, the number of motor vehicle fatalities was 1,922; up 3.6% from 2017 (1,856). The number of serious injuries decreased to 9,494 in 2018; down 6.1% from 2017 (10,107). The number of fatalities per 100,000 population increased slightly to 5.2 in 2018 (from 5.0 in 2017), yet is still the second lowest on record. The number of fatalities per billion vehicle kilometers traveled slightly increased to 4.9 in 2018 (from 4.8 in 2017); also the second lowest recorded In 2018  Canadian number of motor vehicle fatalities was 1,922; up 3.6% from 2017 (1,856).

3. Smoking is responsible for a devastating healthcare burden in Canada, according to a Conference Board of Canada study. The study says that smoking causes more than 45,000 deaths in Canada ANNUALLY, which is nearly 1 in 5 of all deaths (18.4%) in the country. Smoking also causes a massive $6.5 billion in direct health care costs and $16.2 billion in total economic costs, including healthcare costs. The study was based on data for the 2012 year.

In a report from the Lung Association, Making Quit Happen the evidence is indisputable about the dangerous health effects of smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke. Cigarette smoking and second-hand smoke are serious public health hazards, known to cause heart disease and stroke. lung disease, cancer, respiratory illnesses and a host of other serious conditions, even in non-smokers exposed to the smoke. In Canada, tobacco use is the leading causes of preventable death and exposure to second-hand smoke kills more than 1,000 non-smokers every year.

The combined number of Canadian casualties in both WW1 and WW2 is close to 106 000.

4. In 2018, there were 249 homicides caused by a firearm (firearm-related), 18 fewer than in 2017. (Statistics Canada 2018) The firearm-related homicide rate (0.67 per 100,000 population) decreased 8% from the previous year (0.73 per 100,000 population). Prior to 2018, firearm-related homicide had been increasing since 2014, with gang-related violence being the primary driver.

In 2018, 51% of firearm-related homicide were related to gang activity. Overall, in 2018, gang-related homicide committed with a firearm represented 20% of all homicides, compared to 22% the year before and 20% in 2016. 

There were 157 gang-related homicides in 2018, 6 fewer than in 2017. Note  Gang-related homicides continued to account for about one-quarter (24%) of all homicides in 2018 and the rate (0.42 per 100,000 population) decreased 5% from the previous year. This marked the first decrease after three consecutive years of increases; however, it was still the second highest rate recorded in Canada since comparable data was first collected in 2005.

There is no data on how many of the firearm-related homicides were committed with legally registered guns. That is because, probably it will not fit the Government's narrative. Still the Question remains:

How many of them were carried out with LEGALLY OWNED guns?

Why is the Government setting up the law-abiding gun owners as the Straw man?

Why is the Government seizing legally acquired property from law-abiding citizens?

Mr. PM. What is this ban REALLY about?

Challenge to gun laws dismissed in High Court NZ

The Council of Licensed Firearms Owners sought a judicial review on the ban of some types of ammunition, and of the government's decision not to compensate owners of those types of ammunition. It also sought declarations that the recommendation of the Minister of Police - that no compensation be paid for the banned ammunition, and the Order in Council - defining such ammunition, were unlawful and to be ruled invalid.

Justice Francis Cooke said the decision not to compensate those required to surrender prohibited ammunition was contrary to the common law right to compensation and inconsistent with the earlier decision to compensate those surrendering the banned weapons and parts. But..."Ultimately these decisions were made by Parliament rather than through discretionary decision-making subject to judicial review. The criticisms do not provide a basis for a successful judicial review challenge." But there was no requirement for the Minister to conduct such an analysis before the categories of prohibited ammunition were determined by way of Order in Council. It was consistent with the purposes of the Act to take a more general view that particular ammunition designed for specific military purposes should not be permitted to be possessed for civilian use under New Zealand's firearms legislation."

"All New Zealanders should be concerned by bans without compensation of legally purchased products. This sets a truly dangerous precedent," McKee said.

"Today it's ammunition and licenced firearms owners, but if politicians are able to ban things without financial remedy, there's no telling what's next." https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/419910/challenge-to-gun-laws-dismissed-in-high-court

This is it folks, we either stand together or the road to tirrany is wide open!
