Learn from Canadian Pro-gun group video campaign

Post by ckkalyan » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:40 am

A relevant and eye-opening article by Abhijeet Singh; thanks for sharing chengy! (y)

With the recent introduction and passing of Bill C-71 Canada is heading towards gun laws that criminalize legal gun owners while doing nothing to address the real reasons behind gun violence. One of the major reasons being the smuggling of guns across the border from the United States.

[media]https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/tasker ... -1.4833034[/media]

One other frightening, major change is that the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), considered as experts in firearms will be given arbitrary power to classify firearms as Non-Registered, Registered or Prohibited. Granting such sweeping law-making powers to a law enforcement agency is a clear conflict of interest, not to mention, undemocratic.

I am sure it will be of interest to IFGíans to observe what a relatively new gun-rights group - CCFR https://firearmrights.ca/en/home/ is attempting with hitherto, unprecedented membership numbers and support from lawful gun owners. They have come up with a series of really effective, simplified communication that they call Explainer Videos. They are all short, to the point and crisp explanations of firearms specific issues. These communications seek to convey the facts to the general public, (gun-owners/anti-gun-lobby and the blissfully unaware citizen)

Check out this example
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!

Abhijeet, many thanks for that intuitive split to a new topic! :D I was just considering contacting a moderator to move my writeup to a more appropriate place. :D

This train of thought goes back to More gun control in Canada started by IFG Member NAHMINT284 on Fri Sep 07, 2018 viewtopic.php?f=3&t=26360&p=257399&hilit=CCFR#p257399 and my reply mentioning Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR).

Keep the good fight up, never give up! :cheers:

I did see that, but considering the current climate here and the topical relevance, decided to create a discrete thread for this. Maybe some months later we can merge it with that :)
