    MSM: To concerned Canadians, anti gun groups came in second, while the pro gun lobby came in next to last.

    It is time to identify the most anti gun media, and target their advertisers. Anti gun = anti profits. Write letters, send emails, boycott products and service providers, and hammer that point home. Once in a long time we get to vote for a politician, the rest of the time, we vote with our wallets.

    Revise firearms classification: Three stakeholders (representing government, victims and research/academia)
    provided clear suggestions for revising firearms classification, which included:
    o “Automatically, but temporarily” classify all new firearms as prohibited until properly classified
    o Change all non-restricted semi-automatic firearms to restricted; and
    o Ban all restricted firearms.

    Would’ve been a slam dunk, but now the antis will always be able to seed some doubt as to the accuracy of the results...

    I can't believe they left it so open to manipulation by accident.

    Lol, if it was 51% against and 50% for, Blair would have said there's overwhelming evidence that Canadians want a hand gun ban!

    130k is not bad in a community of 2 million. I'd love to see that way higher but it's more noise than gun owners have made in the past. Had it been 20k, we'd be in #### now.

    If your generation (I'm making an assumption here) wants to keep the guns we have or will have after this round with the Liberals is over, then you may want to change from relying totally on the tools of the past. I do not call this success: ht tp://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/pol-leg/hist/con-eng.htm timelines are shifted but there's a rough correlation between the two links and the end impact on us. And here's what we did 25 years ago to stop the trend: ht tps://www.producer.com/1998/09/antigun-control-movement-plans-parliament-hill-rally/

    Up to you to carry the torch - here's a starting point: https://www.canadiangunnutz.com/foru...ism-is-welcome
    This is real progress for you. Just include a link to your manifesto. Great way distract us all.
    A free society must outlaw harming innocent people to function, but when we seek to curtail what all of us can do, rather than holding each of us responsible for what we actually do, we give up on freedom itself.

    Good point, I missed that in my suggested plan so if it's ok with you I'll add it to "activism".

    Twenty thousand took time off work, travelled to Ottawa on their own dime and confronted the politicians.

    Maybe it din't stop Bill C-68 but I'd be surprised if we could muster 10K now to make a physical presence?

    Twenty-five years ago we did the best that we could with what we had. Problem is we should have done better this time in the internet age and our message should be more in tune with the times.

    Those who are clinging to the past are going to be our downfall.
