    CSSA & CSAAA Join to start legal action- Ruger 10/22 mags

    TEAM CSSA and CSAAA JOIN TO ENABLE LEGAL ACTION TO DEFEND AGAINST 10/22 MAGAZINE RE-CLASSIFICATION

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 28, 2016

    ETOBICOKE, ONTARIO - The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA), representing recreational firearms owners, has joined with the Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA), representing firearms business owners, to empower legal action against the recent decision by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Firearms Program to prohibit several brands of imported 10/22 extended capacity rifle magazines.

    The CSAAA and CSSA Boards of Directors voted late last week to raise and contribute funding to a legal defence fund to make this legal action possible.

    The action will be conducted by noted firearms lawyer Edward L. Burlew, L.L.B. , General Counsel for the CSSA.

    Mr. Burlew states, "This recent, sudden reversal deprives legal firearms owners of their property rights and attacks their freedom. The RCMP has a duty to every Canadian to act fairly and consistently. The recent decision to reverse position on Ruger 10/22 magazines holding over 10 cartridges is a deliberate move to cause serious worry to hundreds of thousands of Canadians, licenced firearms dealers and importers."

    Burlew adds, " A Federal Court Class Action on behalf of all persons, individuals, dealers and distributors who now possess cartridge magazines to fit the Ruger 10/22 that can contain more than 10 cartridges will be commenced. The purpose of the action is to seek a judgement that these magazines are not prohibited, to declare the magazine capacity restrictions void as unconstitutional or in the alternative to force a buy-back of each at full retail value. A claim for the intentional infliction of mental distress due to the fear of police action and criminal charges will be included."

    Individuals are advised not to use, transfer, dispose of, alter or modify, or transport these magazines at this time.

    At this time, due to the controversy, importers, dealers and individual owners are advised to stop sales and transfers of all 10/22 high capacity (over 10 rounds) rifle magazines. Businesses are cautioned not to attempt to “pin” magazines unless their license specifically authorizes work on prohibited magazines.

    We are advising against businesses or their customers surrendering or returning these magazines to anyone at this time.

    If you are the consumer owner of one of these magazines your participation in the action is very much desired. THERE IS NO FEE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION BUT DONATIONS TO THE ACTION ARE WELCOME.

    DONATIONS CAN BE MADE AT: 10/22 +10 Class Action Donation

    From consumer owners we need:
    • A communication informing us of your willingness to participate in a class action lawsuit;
    • Brands and models of 10/22 +10 round capacity magazines currently in inventory and the value of the inventory;

    Everyone will hopefully contribute some money to this one. It'll likely cost a couple of bucks. Worth every penny.

    I want to donate $100.00 but a little unclear on who to send too.
    If everyone on here donated just 25 bucks each we would have a massive war chest.

    There is a link in the actual email. Go to the CSSA website. I'm sure there will be a link handy there.

    Go to CSSA'S website:
    http://store.cssa-cila.org/cart.php?target=product&product_id=16174&category_ id=253

    I did the same gave $100.00. Let send a message to the Liberals.
