July 2013
Western Sportsman;Jul/Aug2013, Vol. 45 Issue 3, p54
The article discusses the need for firearms reform in Canada. The author says the Conservative Government of Canada has been ignoring calls to address the failed firearms control system of the country. He adds with the government able to pass Bill C-19, they believe that they were able to resolve the most egregious part of the 1995 Liberal C-68 Firearms Act. He believes there is a need for Conservative Members of the Parliament (MP) of Canada to be more active in addressing gun control.
