The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters has made a submission to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security, regarding Bill C-71. It draws upon the response from OFAH’s survey of its members, and describes many problems with the bill, and suggested changes. You can find the submission and more at the OFAH’s Bill C-71 page, or you can download the 12-page submission directly at this link (it’s a 5 MB PDF file).
Bring your shotguns and get ready for a friendly, fun, informal few hours of trap shooting (and whatever else we can dream up — last year there was a combination of golf /shotgun shoots 😉 with our fellow hunt club members, family and friends. We plan to start around 10 am, at the Beacon Homestead, 263581 Southgate Road 26 (across from Wilder’s Lake). See our Events page for contact info.

This just in from CSSA:
Two leaders of Canada’s firearm community joined forces to help journalists, policymakers and responsible gun owners understand how Bill C-71, the government’s first proposed firearm legislation in a generation, aims at the wrong target.
The Bill C-71 Book: What It Means, How It Hurts You, and 3 Easy Steps You Can Take Right Now to Block It is the most comprehensive and easy-to-read overview of the draft law.
The free PDF/e-Book is a joint project of The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA), Canada’s leading gun-rights advocacy group, and TheGunBlog.ca, the country’s leading source of news on gun politics and the firearm industry.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, June 7th, at 7:30 pm, at our clubhouse (click for map). Visitors are always welcome!
Note that this is our last regular meeting before the summer. Meetings will resume on September 6th. In the meantime, don’t forget our Trap Shoot on June 16th, and Family Day on July 8th. See our Events page for details.
