Gun ban would have consequences for many

Opinion

To the Editor:

I am concerned about the government’s plans to ban more guns, and/or home firearm storage for hundreds of thousands of federally licensed hunters, farmers, recreational shooters and competitors. This would have major consequences for many of my family and friends in our riding and across the country.

Hunting and shooting are important parts of our culture and heritage as Canadians. We will energetically oppose any new restrictions on honest Canadians, just as we will enthusiastically support any party that defends our rights.
