    This is actually 100% false.

    In the history of this country, there have been groups that were very successful in extracting concessions from the government and groups that were less than successful. Natives, feminists, gay rights activists, etc. fall in the former category, while gun owners generally fall in the latter. If you compare the strategies and tactics used by the successful groups to those of the unsuccessful groups, drastic differences become parent. The question is, are Canadian gun owners motivated enough to engage in the kind of activities that will force the government to reconcile with their demands? Donating to the CSSA and writing letters to your MP will not get you there.

    Police are nothing more than civilians, their job title doesn't make them anything more than "at work" civilians. STOP contributing to this movement to have them placed above the regular man.

    You have to do what has proven to be effective, not something that seems easy and hassle-free.

    You know the expression "squeaky wheel gets the grease"? You can squeak until the cows come home, and write to your MP on a daily basis, and maybe you'll get a squirt of grease from a Conservative government in the form of Bill C-42 once in a generation. But when the wheel starts to rattle and shake and wobble and is about to fall off, the whole cart gets an overhaul. The natives did not get their land claims, casinos, tax exemptions, etc. by writing letters to their MP. Neither did the other groups that I mentioned.

    Well unfortunately most gun owners work 1 if not 2 jobs. If I had all the time in the world, collected my cheque from the gov't and cried discrimination to anyone who listened maybe over a century Id get something done too. You want change its gonna be with the younger generation. Get your kids educated and shooting. Get them involved in the community and let them rise to be leaders. Id rather not act as a douche bag low life to get on the CBC or a politician's ear. Getting a casino on your reserve is far from a victory...thats a trojan horse no different from giving them booze back in the day....keep em in poverty..what will they do? As for the gay rights.....gays always had rights in Canada...only thing they have is a stupid parade and they can go to town hall and get a piece of paper that says they're married.
    If group has made some big head way its the Pot heads....they are actually seeing some significant laws change in their favor. Something many many Canadians are doing time for is gonna be completely legal very soon. They did not make this happen with illegal blockades, parades or crying discrimination.
    The real truth is that CGN as a whole is a very divisive group...most people on here troll and slag others and just generally rude people. There are some genuine solid folks here but most only care about themselves and nobody else. We've got the east Ont vs west Alta/Sask...black guns vs fudds..trophy hunters vs meat hunters ect ect ect.
    I foresee this getting locked...Im not looking for trouble so PEACE OUT!!!

    The "Fight of our lives" is due to voting liberal. We had a chance at really protecting our sport now we have condemned ourselves. What's even worse are the gun owners that voted Liberal.

    Thank you, John, for being a VOICE! May we all pay attention and stand up for our rights. If we (as good men and women) do nothing, they will win. And our freedoms will be reduced...again.
