Saskatchewan Resolutions Against Gun Control
The intent of this website is to provide a forum to support gun-related activities in the Province of Saskatchewan. The website will be maintained by volunteers and be kept as simple as possible. We look to promote all the shooting sports in the Province of Saskatchewan, and to do it with a political bent (Scrap Bill C-68, the Firearms Act).
Call to Action
I’m hoping to convince a number of you to write your MLA’s, MP’s, Bill Blair and Justin Trudeau voicing your strong opposition to the May 1st OIC
Bill C-21 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiru8bpvo3wAhUCQawKHc38DsEQFjACegQIDBAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.publicsafety.gc.ca%2Fcnt%2Fcntrng-crm%2Ffrrms%2Fc21-en.aspx&usg=AOvVaw3UYq8z3zjKMkMtCDQnE0vqand, and
I’m also including a sample letter below that can be used in its entirety or as an information guide to compose a letter in your own words. In addition to this feel free to use the statistical information along with the reference links in support of your objections. I understand that many people don’t enjoy writing letters but law-abiding gun owners everywhere need to be heard before all of our firearms are taken away. Hopefully this will make it a little easier.
Lastly you may have heard of Bill C-10, https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/csj-sjc/pl/charter-charte/c10.html a bill to control what is allowed to be posted on the internet. While many believe that there are some harmful and hateful things online, for the most part these are already regulated or illegal. Since the original introduction of this bill significant changes have been introduced. What c10 now aims to do is regulate individuals as if they were broadcasters and limit free speech. As much of what legal firearms owners and groups post opposes the governments point of view it may become blocked or removed in the future, taking our collective voices away. This is very concerning and again letters should be sent to your MP, the PM, the NDP and David Lametti the Canadian Minister of Justice, voicing your opposition to this bill.
