Ontario residents are suffering under what is surely the most arrogant and paternalistic government in the province's history. Liberal's only response to a problem seems to be to legislate a ban. What will the Ontario Liberals ban next?
        

Liberal's plan to ban semi-autos go the way of the carbon tax? I doubt it. Gun bans are widely supported by rank and file Liberals.         

Support the Bruce Montague C-68 challenge.
        


Taking guns from law-abiding gun owners is like taking cars from sober people to tackle drunk driving!



Greetings:

Some critical information about the upcoming municipal elections on Oct. 22:

Following the release of some misleading statistics from the Toronto Police Service falsely claiming that some 50% of crime guns are now domestically sourced (the actual number is about 14%) some politicians like Mayor John Tory of Toronto seized on this as an opportunity to ask the federal government to enact a ban on handguns and certain other firearms.

Despite the information being completely false the Trudeau Liberals have implemented an investigation to study the possibility of a nationwide firearm ban. As usual, law-abiding gun owners are being made the scapegoats for the government's inability to bring under control the gangs, drug dealers and terrorists who are committing the crimes.

Like the good little lemmings that they are some local politicians like Mayor Walter Sendzik of St. Catharines have followed Tory's lead and attempted to bring forward similar legislation locally.

With the municipal elections only two weeks away "The Sporting Clubs of Niagara" feels it is vitally important that we get information out to local firearm owners to let them know which politicians are prepared to sacrifice the activities and property of the people they represent in a futile attempt to stop the activities of criminals who will ignore any new law just as they already disregard current laws. These politicians care little about your rights and property and need to be defeated at the polls.

You will find attached to this email a partial list of local politicians running for election.

We ask you to do the following:
1. Review the current list to see which candidates you can or can't count on to defend your rights and property and vote for them.

2. As it is impossible for us to know the position of every candidate for every position we ask that if you have any accurate information regarding the position on firearms of any candidates not currently listed that you forward it to us and hold we will update the information on the chart.

3. Contact your local candidates and ask them if they support a ban on the legally acquired and lawfully owned property of their constituents. The names of all candidates and their contact information can be found here: https://www.niagararegion.ca/government/council/municipal-election/municipal-candidates.aspx

When you get an answer let us know so we can update the chart.

Time is short so please do this ASAP!

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours truly,

The Executive
The Sporting Clubs of Niagara


Gun ban impedes on lawfull gun ownership

baby Banning handguns or carbines, aka assault weapons for all the anti-gun people out there, impedes on the right of any law-abiding gun owner. Such ban is as good as sacrificing a goat to prevent an earthquake. Drugs and illegal guns come from the same sources. The latest domestically sourced statistic has no value behind it as there is no system to track illegal guns, just like there isn't one for drugs! All crime gun statistics are elevated as all the guns seized are considered as a 'crime gun'; not just the one in question.

The first Trudeau prohibition of firearms in the 1970s did nothing but impeded on the lawful gun owners' rights and look today, 2018, and the criminals have these now so called, "prohibited firearms" to this day, and law-full gun owners do not. Handgun registry was also put in place then and it has done nothing to fight crime. Gun Ban not right The Liberal Government blends criminals into society, gives these gangsters a slap on the wrist for having a gun illegally and yet, there is a big outcry to ban handguns or carbines from civilians. Criminals don't go to your local gun store to buy a gun! This gun ban makes as much sense as the thought that we no longer need farmers because we have grocery stores! Even the Police Association is telling you banning guns from law-abiding citizens is not a good idea by any means! Law abiding citizens and gun owners (normal, rational people, if you will) created what is currently referred to as the 'Police' mind you, not the government.

Keep an eye out for bad people, not weapons; otherwise, you are not going anywhere! A Liberal MP quit the party in the 1990's because she could not believe the Liberals were throwing millions of dollars around like they were pennies! That should be of public interest, not banning guns!

Handgun ban proposal abnormal

Once again, every impulsive anti-gun person is up in arms for a ban because some type of gun was used to harm innocent people. Lets not remember the 10 innocent people that lost their lives to a van, or an officer that lost his life to a snow plow or an innocent passanger going about their day on a bus that was beheaded by a knife. All these acts were justified cause the abnormal people that are up in arms to ban guns don't own a gun but all the other objects used prior are familiar to them, so they get busy scratching their chins and think of a mental disorder to justify those wrong acts by the abnormal people cause a gun was not used, woot woot, so they can get the abnormal people back into society to live another day.

Hey, after all, its not their fault. Neither its the Van's fault, knife's fault, snow plows fault and all the other objects ever used to harm people. But as soons as a gun is used, holy shit, lets ban that gun. For all you younge peple out there, regardless of what you are taught, this abnormal proposal is as good as someone telling you that you cannot own a cell phone cause someone used one in an IED attack and killed innocent people.

The Danforth shooting that caused this gun ban proposal, if the dude used a van or a pressure cooker instead, our dearly beloved anti-gun people would be scratching their chins, noses buried in books trying to come up with some type of a mental disorder so this abnormal individual can be somehow justified in their actions and be set free to live another day, no ban required. Mind you, the outcome would have been the same, innoncent life(s) lost. Chin scratcher of the day is, was it a mental disorder or a gun? Do we set free or ban, cause its never the abnormal individuals fault eh!

The Liberal Government turns down a bill that would have held all these hooligans with guns running around Toronto accountable but .."hey, if a hooligan breaks into your house, ditch the wife, ditch the kids, call 911 and run cause that is procedure. Don't you dare pull out your lawfully owned firearm cause we will get you for pointing a firearm, unsafe storage and whatever else we can find. We got this. You'll have to pay $60,000 in court fees to prove yourself innocent from all these charges but in the meantime, we will seize all your firearms so you don't do this again cause that's what the law says." ...by the way, don't forget to file your taxes every year cause we will come after you for that too. We gotta get paid for doing our job. If the hooligans uses your firearm in a crime later, we shall meet again cause you purchased it, so its your fault. Let the hooligans be, they don't file taxes, get educated nor work plus, the law is for the law-abiding citizens. Hooligans don't follow law, right?" Serial killers roam the streets for years like its a super market but hey, they don't use a gun so nothing to worry about but when a shooting happens, don't forget to use the term "mass shooting" cause its sounds horrific. We know what hooligans, rapist, vans, knifes and serial killers are. Nothing scary there but a gun is, we don't like them so lets worry about banning them.

Once normal law abiding citizens don't have guns anymore, all the evil tendencies in others will totally go away. The abnormals will become normal. Won't matter who you run into in the future, everyone is a good person and more than willing to help you. All gang activity in Toronto, for example, will be gone. No more running people over with cars or building bombs or deal with orginzed crime or serial killers or any other thing evil thing people do. No one will harm others anymore. We will all live in a happy jolly Liberal society. Cause after all, a gun was made as there was no evil in people from the get go and therefore, people got bored and decided to stir things up a bit, right?


2018 Shoot for Abbi at Decew Gun Club

Because we had such great support from the local shooting community for our "Shoot for Abbi" event we thought everyone might want a preliminary report on how things went.

In a word it was "FANTASTIC". About 157 shooters participated which was some 50% more than last year. And while the receipts are still being finalized it appears that the income from the shoot, all of which will go towards researching a cure for cystinosis, was in the vicinity of $11,300. This means that in the three years the Decew Gun Club has been running this event we will have contributed some $25000 towards finding a cure for this disease.

We would like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank the dozens of people, companies, local gun clubs, etc. who assisted in so many capacities at the shoot, donated ammunition, loaned us their firearms, sold/bought raffle tickets, promoted the shoot on their websites, etc. Without your tremendous support we could never have pulled this off.

Some people spent 9-10 hours helping at the club preparing, running the event and cleaning up afterward. And while others were only able to come for an hour or two even the smallest contribution made the job of conducting such a huge undertaking so much easier and we are extremely grateful to each and every person who assisted us.

Once again, our sincerest thanks to everyone who pitched in to help in any capacity at this very worthwhile activity.

Bill C-71 targets law-abiding citizens

Bill C-71 further restricts the tax paying, law abiding citizen from firearm ownership. There is no mention of gangs, criminals, unlawful ownage or use of a frearm. It does nothing to combat crime.

Firearm owners have to act now and write to your MP's raising this issue. Some statistics taken from the government website can be found here. Also, some great talking points and other usefull links can be found here at CSSA website.

Bill C-71 is the cousin of Bill C-68 brought forth by JT's father. There is no mention of anything that even comes remotely close to gangs, crime nor criminality reduction. In fact, Liberals brought out Bill C-75 which reduces sentences for criminals. There is 75,000 signatures against Bill C-71. We also have a muslim mosque that collected just 75 signatures to ban assualt weapons (aka civilian carbines) and this muslim petition of just 75 signatures is what the government is noticing; yet, our tax paying citizens' petition of 75,000 signatures against Bill C-71 gets ignored as if it never existed.

Remember, when a Police officer has a so called assualt weapon, its considered a 'carbine'; however, when a civilian owns it, its nothing but an assault weapon. FYI, assualt weapons' true definition is a fully-automatic firearm. The definition has been hiped up and twisted to make semi-auto firearms sound so much more scary. FYI, 'assualt' is an action, not an object.

London now has a huge murder rate, higher than New York, yet, London has had a gun ban for years and years. The latest vehicle attack in Toronto, Canada, killed over 10 people but that's no big deal cause a firearm wasn't used. If a firearm was used instead of a vehicle, the media and the CBC would be over heating right now to try and ban firearms.


Help to enable legal action against the latest RCMP's ban of 10/22 over 10rnds magazines

ETOBICOKE, ONTARIO - The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA), representing recreational firearms owners, has joined with the Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA), representing firearms business owners, to empower legal action against the recent decision by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Firearms Program to prohibit several brands of imported 10/22 extended capacity rifle magazines.

The CSAAA and CSSA Boards of Directors voted late last week to raise and contribute funding to a legal defence fund to make this legal action possible

[Scrap C-68] Case Update: Our Home is being Returned to Us!

August 8, 2016

Dear Supporters:

This has been a really long haul for us but the crown has finally dropped their civil forfeiture case against us and have dropped their lean against our home.

It's a shame that the crown has taken so long to drop this case that should have never been started in the first place! BUT I guess when you have civil servants that are not held accountable that's what you get.

My thanks to all of you who supported us with your expertise, money and prayers. I would also like to thank the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) which has been representing us since our lawyer Doug Christie died. The CCF has been very good to us and has been working diligently on our case pro bono! They definitely deserve financial support for all the hard work they are doing for average Canadians like you and me who have our rights violated. Please consider donating to them at their website at "http://theccf.ca/" .

Yours in Liberty,

Bruce & Donna.


Thorold Council Meeting regarding firearm discharge by-law

First we want to extend a big "Thank You" to everyone who showed up to the Thorold town council meeting to oppose the proposed firearm discharge by-law in Thorold.

Despite only a few hours notice we were able to mobilize about 50 people to attend the meeting and it certainly got the attention of the Councillors.

The motion to pass the by-law has been deferred indefinitely.


Liberals to let RCMP classify firearms

Mounties will once again have final authority over the classification of firearms, the Liberal government says, reversing legislative changes made by the Conservatives allowing Cabinet to override RCMP decisions. Full story ..click here


RCMP re-visits banning some more civilian firearms

RCMP is once again re-visiting the consideration of banning more everyday rifles from law-abiding citizens.

11 rifles and 1 pistol has been found by the RCMP as no longer suitable for the law-abiding citizen. So that's what the Liberal Gun policy means when they say, 'taking guns off our streets'. They refer to law-abiding citizens as 'the streets'. To any normal person, it sounds like a reference to criminals when stating 'the streets' but not to the Feds or RCMP.

We, the law-abiding citizens, have been painted with the same brush as the criminals. More on this story, ...click here 'http://www.therebel.media/legal_gun_owners_in_rcmp_s_crosshairs_mounties_liberals' .

Original CBC report can be found here. ...it is of no surprise the CBC was the first out of the gate to report this, since it is a left-wing news station funded greatly by the Liberal party.

Note how the CBC article uses a heading picture of RCMPs holding a coffin. What are they trying to imply? Talk about anti-gun propoganda.

Public Safety is affected by mentally deranged individuals or orginized crime trickling down to little gangsters shooting each other in Toronto over drugs or money, not by law-abiding firearm owners. We have no association with such aspects of society.

Altering any firearm from its original manufacturing is a crime and results in jail time invoking the individuals PAL and furthermore, preventing that individual from obtaining another PAL and/or firearm(s).

Short, medium and long distance shooting is a fun sport. Many different firearms are used in these sports including military and paramilitary firearms. Individuals involved in these sports are working class people that pay taxes, raise families and are an asset to society.

From a public safety perspective, banning a firearm from a law-abiding citizen is like castrating yourself cause your neighbour is having too many kids.

Meeting Schedule

In the December 2012 newsletter we indicated that we were scaling operations back a little to give our Executive a rest. Just to give you an idea of what has been going on behind the scenes, with the exception of Christmas holidays and the month of July the TSCON Executive has met weekly for the past eighteen years. This has taken an extraordinary amount of effort and time on the part of the Executive members and with a friendlier government in power for the next couple of years we hope that the situation on the firearm front will be more stable and require less continuous scrutiny than has previously been required. For that reason, we will now meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month plus extra nights when the only activity will be assembly of the current newsletter.

As usual, TSCON members are welcome to join us at any Executive meeting. For your information on the complete schedule for 2018, ...click here

Who are we?

In November of 1994 a group of concerned gun owners from the Niagara area organized a meeting in the basement of a St. Catharines restaurant. Turnout exceeded our expectations. Over 400 people were in attendance. Following the meeting several people stayed behind to discuss what more could be done to fight for the rights of gun owners in the Niagara Peninsula.

Another rally was planned for January 1995. Again turnout was more than expected. Over 2,000 people crowded into the hall, and hundreds more were turned away at the door due to lack of space.

Following the second meeting, organizers decided it would be prudent to create a permanent structure to organize rallies, lobby local politicians and co-ordinate pro-gun activities in the Niagara area. This structure is now the Sporting Clubs of Niagara.

Since then we have:

  • Made a presentation to the Niagara Regional Council which helped prevent to passage of an anti-gun policy statement.
  • Made a presentation to Niagara Falls City Council which helped stop a proposal to further limit hunting areas.
  • Co-ordinated a letter writing campaign to the Senate.
  • Made a presentation to the Police Services Board to counter an anti-gun article written by then Deputy Chief Frank Parkhouse.
  • Organized over forty gun shows.
  • Brought prominent pro-gun speakers into the Niagara area.
  • Maintained contact with sympathetic MPP's and MP's.
  • Written numerous pro-gun "Letters to the Editor" in local and national newspapers.
  • Published a quarterly newsletter which reaches over 5,000 households in and around the Niagara area.
  • Co-ordinated a "Sea of Green" program which placed over one thousand "Remember Bill C-68 when you Vote" signs around the Niagara Peninsula during the 1997, 2000, and 2004 election campaigns.
  • Ran a series of ads in nearly every newspaper in the Niagara Peninsula, detailing the provisions of C-68 and the despotic tendencies of the Liberal Party.

Right to Silence Cards

We continue to hear horror stories of police abusing their powers when dealing with firearm owners, including one incident where a police officer parked outside a gun club and pulled over a member leaving the club for no reason except that there might be firearms in the car (after all it was a GUN club). Our laminated wallet-sized cards declare your right to remain silent and your right to ask for a lawyer when it appears the police are overstepping their authority and questioning you in dubious circumstances. These cards are proving extremely popular (which is a little scary when you think of it). We are only asking for $1 per card to defray the cost of production. If you want cards mailed to you please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request. More info on this is on our website in archived copies of newsletter Vol. 11 #4 and Vol. 12 #1.
