Strength In Numbers: CSSA & CSAAA Announce Official Alignment

When the two most influential Canadian advocacy groups for recreational shooting sports come together to support each other in the fight against firearm-owner stigma, you can’t help but feel positive for the future. Canadian gun owners have had a tumultuous year, with legislative success (http://dailysplit.com/gun-blog/long-gun-registry-is-kaput/), and federal disruption (http://dailysplit.com/gun-blog/never-a-dull-moment-in-canadian-gun-politics/). Meanwhile, firearm advocates like CSSA Executive Tony Bernardo have maintained a welcoming anchor for communities coast-to-coast, caught in the prejudices of the general public.  The Dead Registry Celebration (http://dailysplit.com/gun-blog/theres-a-celebration-in-quebec-and-youre-invited/) last month was a resounding success! And now, the foundation for dynamic pro-gun campaigns and national support has been solidified by the… View Article

Never A Dull Moment in Canadian Gun Politics

Law-abiding firearm owners in Canada have had a rollicking ride in gun politics this month. The Quebec Superior Court has issued a motion to stop the destruction of the nullified Firearm Registry data, and the Ontario government has decided not to proceed with new regulations “requiring that ammunition be locked away in secure storage”(Calgary Herald). These latest events represent the disunity amongst provincial leaders concerning gun ownership and gun rights. While Quebec’s temporary injunction to halt the destruction of Firearm Registry information has dramatically undermined the hard work of Conservative parties across Canada, the dialogue in Ontario continues to work… View Article

Stand Up For One, Stand Up For All: Garry Breitkreuz and Public Stigma

As Garry Breitkreuz, Saskatchewan Conservative MP and influential representative for abolishing the Long-Gun Firearms Registry, comes under torrential criticism this week for allegedly “promoting gun violence” in a speech addressed to a classroom of high-school students, pro-firearm Canadians must take action. To sit back and watch journalists and left-wing politicians destroy the reputation of a well-spoken, intelligent advocate for firearm ownership in Canada, would be to deny the accomplishments of recent months. Simply put, our community needs our support once more. As recreational shooters in Canada continue to feel the stigma of gun ownership, taking the opportunity to defend Breitkreuz… View Article

Guns in Court

The recent investigation after a North Georgia judge pulled out a gun in court has got us thinking. Sure, Judge David E. Barrett wasn’t using his gun for means of self-protection when he pretended to offer it to the sex attack victim who was “killing” her case (Barrett’s words, not ours!) But this incident was the rare case of a frustrated judge irrationally seeking the means to make an impact on the uncooperative testifier that stood before him. So he took it too far. But nobody was physically injured in the process. Judges should maintain the right to carry concealed… View Article

Family Freedom Threatened in Waterloo, Ontario

We told you about it on the DailySplit.com Right Edition. And now we’re here with more facts to decode the traumatizing debacle that befell an innocent father from Waterloo, Ontario on a day that was supposed to stand in triumph for long-gun owners across the country. Wednesday, February 22nd 2012 will certainly make its mark in Canadian history, but with two dramatic events that remind us of a quote from Ronald Reagan: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed… View Article

Long-Gun Registry is Kaput!

Welcome to the DailySplit Gun Page Blog! We can’t think of a better way to start our new segment than to formally commend the hard work of Canada’s thriving Conservative government for finally putting the   long-gun registry right where it belongs: in the history books. After a monumental vote in Ottawa last week passing Bill C-19 (the Ending the Long-Gun Registry Act), gun enthusiasts and right thinkers alike had high hopes for seeing the Long-Gun Registry finally removed in its absurdity and infringement to law-abiding citizens’ rights. And the right side was right! The Long-Gun Registry Act was abolished just… View Article
