On November 24th, CBC Radio’s program “Out in the Open” carried an interview with John Evers of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, on “How it feels to be a gun lover in Canada”. It’s a 9 1/2 minute audio program that you can listen to on-line.
Loads of Canadians own them — legally — but hunter, sport shooter and all-round firearms enthusiast John Evers feels hated for his enjoyment of guns. He says Canadians, by and large, conflate guns with violence.
I found the interview to be reasonably fair and open-minded, and Evers to be quite a good spokesman.
