TEAM CSSA E-NEWS – August 26, 2014 ** Please share this E-news with your friends ** COMMENTARY: GUN CLASSIFICATION NEEDS SURGERY, NOT MERE BAND-AID FIX The Harper government appears earnest in helping gun owners slay the classification dragon, but it needs to take the beast down hammer and tongs with legislation. The recent Swiss Arms and CZ-858 debacle dished up by the RCMP revealed the government’s distaste for being dictated to by meddling civil servants. That’s a good thing. With that said, segments of the general public (and even some gun owners) seem to believe that certain guns are...

TEAM CSSA E-NEWS – Aug. 20, 2014 ** Please share this E-news with your friends ** COMMENTARY: HARPER GOVERNMENT RESISTS POWER-HUNGRY POLICE The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) is not anti-police. On the contrary, many CSSA members proudly serve in provincial, municipal and national police forces. Theirs is the difficult task of standing in harm’s way and bringing repeat offenders and hardened criminals to justice. A modern society without police intervention would be a horror show. Perhaps the danger that police officers face daily is the reason some are resorting to bullying black-ops tactics more and more. But here’s...

TEAM CSSA E-NEWS – July 10, 2014 ** Please share this E-news with your friends ** COMMENTARY: CSSA CONTINUES TRAINING MEDIA AND GOVERNMENT The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CCSA) continues on the path of firearms freedom in Canada by educating the people who can help change public opinion and the Firearms Act. Many anti-gun advocates conjure up a wonky vision of the wild west when they think of sport shooters. Thanks to the entertainment industry and some media agencies, gun owners are portrayed as bullying gun-slingers who have little interest in public safety. The CSSA strives to give members...

TEAM CSSA E-NEWS – June. 25, 2014 ** Please share this E-news with your friends ** COMMENTARY: U.N. GUN MARKING STAYS ON THE RADAR The fifth Biennial Meeting of States (BMS5) for the Implementation of United Nations Programme of Action (PoA) took place in New York City last week. As the name would suggest, it is a rather cumbersome gathering of international delegates who convene at the U.N. to discuss reducing the transfer of illicit small arms into conflict areas. The cat in the birdcage at the 11-year-old PoA is the hidden horror that Canadian gun owners should greatly...

TEAM CSSA E-NEWS – June 16, 2014 COMMENTARY: RON CHARACH – FROM RIDICULOUS TO IRREPONSIBLE Responsible firearms owners continue to read in disbelief the absurd newspaper op-eds and letters to the editor from Toronto psychiatrist Ron Charach. Charach’s anti-gun and anti-government rants might be amusing if they weren’t so immorally out-to-lunch. He claims that all gun violence could be eradicated by taking guns away from responsible gun owners with more legislation. It’s unsettling when a so-called psych professional advocates that sanity can be legislated. One is tempted to warn Charach’s patients that their doctor is a magical mystery tour...

It goes against the grain for a news agency to intentionally withhold information during major events like mass murder. Kudos to Sun News for adopting a policy for the greater good. If other media follow suit, perhaps mentally ill attention-seekers will be dissuaded from...

Q. When will opportunist left-wingers stop using gun owners as their favourite pre-election punching bag? A. When responsible firearms owners get out the vote and help elect an alternative. Wynne knows full well that firearms restrictions are a federal responsibility, so her call for a handgun ban is provincial Liberal dross. She tossed the notion of handgun bans into her electoral...
