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.
To All Niagara Area Hunters & Gun Owners:
We attended a meeting regarding this issue a couple of months back and at the time their reasoning for the recommended changes was pretty lame, not to mention that they appeared to be trying to ram it through without giving the public adequate notice. We do not know if this new proposal is an improvement over the last one or simply a "we've consulted the public and now we're going to do it anyway" exercise.
Even if you do not live in Thorold it is important that we attend these meetings and show them that we are not going to accept changes made for no good reason. If they are successful in bringing this in it is a guarantee that similar bylaws will pop in other municipalities in the Region till there are no hunting or shooting areas left.
The public meetings are at 1800 hrs, October 27th and November 2nd in two different locations :
Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016
If you can attend one meeting that is good, attending both is better. At the very least you can send an email to the City Clerk expressing why you disagree with this bylaw change. The email address to send it to is: email@example.com
Thank you for your support in this matter.
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
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.
Fantastic turn out for 'Shoot for Abbi' Charity Event
Approximately 60 participants (adults and kids) took part in the shoot and we ran steady from 10:00 AM to nearly 3:00 PM.
When all was said and done the event raised over $6000 for the Cystinosis Research Foundation which is just an incredible feat.
In addition to the shooting prizes, thanks to the generosity of numerous local companies and individuals there were dozens of draw prizes for attendees as well.
The cowboy action range also saw steady traffic with many people lining up to try their hand at shooting steel targets with old time firearms.
Because of the dozens of volunteers who came out to help with the concession stand, supervising shooters on the line, scoring targets, selling raffle tickets, running the draws and a myriad of other tasks the event ran very smoothly and we think everyone had a great time. Yes, and Abbi was able to attend as well to try her hand shooting at the targets and balloons.
With so many helpers its nearly impossible to personally thank everyone but I would like to recognize three individuals who were key figures in pulling this off.
First is Phil Huntington and his cowboy posse who braved the summer sun in full western regalia to keep the cowboy action range moving at full speed.
Second is Scott Little and his crew from TDSA Canada firearms training academy who, along with several Decew Gun Club members kept the firing line running smoothly and safely.
Last and most important I want to thank Club Director John Rakich from the Destination Church who was the prime mover behind this event. With help from his family John set up the shoot, posted promotional videos, gathered draw prizes, arranged for the food and just about every other job imaginable for a project like this.
Congratulations John, for a job well done to benefit a very worthwhile cause. I feel like this was one of those rare occurrences where everyone came out a winner.
My thanks again to all participants, volunteers and organizers for a job well done.

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 2016, ...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:

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.
