CSSA posing an interesting question on RCMP antics in the CFP;

COMMENTARY

Did RCMP Firearms Program Techs Violate the Firearms Act 340 Times?

Since the Liberal government’s May 1st gun ban by Order in Council was announced, computer techs at the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program have reclassified 340 specific firearms as Prohibited. [i]

This raises two issues.

First, the term variant is not defined in the Firearms Act , which means the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program can literally claim anything is a variant of an AR-15, for example, and there is no way to correct the RCMP’s mistake.

For example, the Adler B210, a bolt-action smoothbore shotgun, was reclassified by the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program as Prohibited because, in their bizarre view, this bolt-action shotgun is a variant of the AR-15. [ii]

In similarly idiotic fashion, they reclassified the Saiga 410C Semi-Automatic shotgun as a variant of the Soviet AK-47 rifle. [iii]

Not one part is shared by these two so-called variants and the AR-15 or AK-47. Not one.

Yet because the term is not defined in law and our current government doesn’t care about firearms owners, they get away with this nonsense.

Second, changing a firearm’s classification after one year is a violation of the Firearms Act, making every one of those 340 firearm reclassifications a separate offence.

The Firearms Records Regulations (Classification) state: [iv]

Keeping and amendment of records

Only the Registrar may keep or amend records of determinations made under the Firearms Act that firearms of a particular type, make and model are prohibited firearms, restricted firearms or neither prohibited firearms nor restricted firearms.
The Registrar must keep a record of every determination referred to in section 1 that he or she makes.
The records referred to in section 2 must not be amended more than one year after the day on which they are made and must not be destroyed.

Every time the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program unilaterally reclassified one of these 340 firearms, they blatantly and flagrantly violated the Firearms Act .

Every.

Single.

Time.

Our question for Public Safety Minister Blair is quite simple.

Minister Blair, when will you order the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program to abide by the Firearms Act ?

PS: We’re not holding our breath waiting for an answer.

CSSA Supports Two Legal Challenges of SOR/2020-96

The CSSA examined in detail all of the possible actions and current legal actions available to us to determine which case or cases provide the greatest opportunity to set a favourable decision for our community. Using our considerable experience in firearms legislation and law, we have determined the two 117.15 actions below represent the best chance of timely success for our members and their hard-earned dollars.

Public Interest Litigants Judicial Review
[news release]
Cassandra Parker / K.K.S. Tactical Supplies Ltd. Judicial Review
[news story]
Toronto lawyer Arkadi Bouchelev represents a group of ten public interest litigants in their judicial review. The case is supported by the Ontario Landowners Association.

For those who remember the Peter Sedge case, Mr. Bouchelev is the attorney who successfully defended Mr. Sedge and negotiated a settlement between Mr. Sedge and the Toronto Police Service for their gross misconduct. Mr. Bouchelev has welcomed the CSSA’s considerable expertise and assistance.

Ottawa criminal defence lawyer Solomon Friedman represents Ms. Parker and K.K.S. Tactical in her action.

Both attorneys are well-known, talented and experienced in firearms law. In our opinion, these two judicial reviews provide our community with the best opportunity to strike down the May 1, 2020, Order in Council SOR/2020-96.

Please use the donation links below if you would like to financially support these cases as well.

And of course, the CSSA lawyer Ed Burlew, is also working on John Hipwell's case;

TheGunBlog.ca — The lawyer for John Hipwell, the founder of Wolverine Supplies Ltd., filed 2,358 pages of evidence today for their Federal Court fight to stop the Liberal Party of Canada’s attacks against hunters, farmers and sport shooters.

“This is a historic moment: the evidence serving,” Edward Burlew told TheGunBlog.ca in an exclusive interview as he pulled a briefcase with the files to the Department of Justice mailroom in downtown Toronto. “I’m ready to go to hearing.”

Burlew, who wore a face mask displaying “Team Hipwell,” said the Wolverine founder was the first to file affidavits among the teams challenging the Liberal mass firearm confiscations in Federal Court.

Six cases have been filed, including one this week.

Burlew submitted evidence from 16 people, including Hipwell, and has more than a thousand pages yet to file. The affidavits aren’t public.

Virden, Manitoba-based Wolverine is one of Canada’s largest independent gun retailers and distributors.

Private gun ownership is at the heart of Canadian heritage, culture and the economy.

More adults have a federal firearm licence than play hockey.
Millions of families and individuals own or use firearms for everything from protection, hunting and competition to recreation, collecting and education to investing and art.
Hunters and sport shooters contribute an estimated $8.5 billion to the national economy each year.
Support Hipwell Challenge

The editor of TheGunBlog.ca donated to several court challenges, including Hipwell’s. Donate via Hipwell’s GoFundMe; https://www.gofundme.com/?fbclid=IwA...oFb6lSnhjWqG2k

The Liberals, who prepared the confiscations in secret with the federal police, initiated their sudden and sweeping crackdown against honest citizens on May 1 through a so-called “Order in Council.”

Many people have pledged to opt out of the forced surrender that violates fundamental principles of ethics, justice, governance and law.

The affidavits “cover every paragraph of the OIC,” Burlew said.

‘Expedite a Hearing’

“I submitted evidence to the Crown in an effort to expedite a hearing of all applications,” Burlew told TheGunBlog.ca. “The applications are all going forward together, and the injunctions that are being asked for will not delay the meeting.”

The Liberals targeted rifle and shotgun owners on May 1, and are going after handgun owners next.

They are also preparing what they call their “evergreen framework for gun classifications” to “quickly” prohibit anyone’s gear anytime.

Chinese want to get involved in small arms trade bans now. Wonder what their ulterior motive could possibly be?

Appears another group has joined the fray, Burlington Rifle & Revolver Club, Montreal Firearms Rec Ctr, O'Dell engineering and 3 individuals, guess that would be #8 on the list.

NFA update with Solomon Friedman and an explanation of what the status is, of the case he is running, at the moment, Covid is the gov't excuse for delays in providing the evidence, of the reasoning behind the OIC's. Essentially waiting on office workers in the gov't. If nothing else, some interesting explanation of the procedures they need to go thru. Also quite a discussion of some of the consequences of Bill C75 and the removal of rights included in it which affected firearms owners and others.

Just so people understand where C71 & the OIC's came from, a paper by Wendy that she wrote for Project Ploughshares on military style guns. As much as I cringe reading this stuff, you have to know your enemy.

See an E-mail thet the Cdn Taxpayers Federation is applying to intervene in Cassasndra Parker's case and the CCFR case, they don't like the idea of the OIC's and C71 either;


Dear Supporter,

We’ve filed our documents.

You remember Cassandra Parker because she’s taking the Trudeau government to court to fight the federal gun ban and buyback. She owns a business in Prince George, B.C., that’s hit hard by the ban. And the Canadian Taxpayers Federation just filed documents to intervene in the case to oppose a policy that will cost taxpayers a lot of money, but won’t make anyone safer.

If you want to hear from Cassandra herself, check out her interview with our B.C. Director Kris Sims – just click this LINK.

Now we’re taking this a step further. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is applying to intervene in a second court challenge against the gun ban and buyback led by the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights. The two cases are slightly different, but they give us twice as many shots at taking down this expensive and unfair law.

If you’re interested in reading the legal documents, you can find our motion record for Cassandra’s case here and our motion record for the CCFR case here.

Because we are seeking to join these cases as interveners, we will now need to wait to hear if the court decides to grant us permission, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated when we get a decision.

Thank you again for your support!
Aaron, Todd, Shannon and the entire CTF team

Another vid from Ian Runkle, about concealed carry, if you were not confused before, you will be now. This is essentially the courts making law.

This is one of those kinds of info that is irritating to say the least. All from Mike Loberg, CCFR counsel;

I worked really hard to try to get the parties suing the government over the OIC to work together, because it’s important that we all provide consistent, non-contradictory evidence, and mutually supportive arguments.
Unfortunately one lawyer has decided that they won’t voluntarily let the other groups see the evidence they have served, but instead say they won’t cooperate with the other groups unless ordered to do so by a Federal Court judge. So much for cooperation on the pro-gun side.
I can’t force them to cooperate, that is unless I bring a court application against them to make them work with the other litigant groups, and I might do that, but it is worthy of note that there is one lawyer who just won’t cooperate.
You have to wonder whose side these people are on...

The CCFR case involves every aspect and angle we can deploy, without exception, and that includes literally hundreds of Access to Information Act requests. We expected to receive resistance to some requests, but this answer is, in technical legal terms, complete horse****.
Request: "On behalf of the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights and Rodney Giltaca we request access to information related to Order in Council P.C. 2020-298, May 1, 2020 (the “Order in Council"), making the Regulations Amending the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and Other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-Restricted on May 1, 2020 (the “Regulations"), and P.C. 2020-299, May 1, 2020, making the Order Declaring an Amnesty Period (2020) (the “Amnesty Order"). In particular, we request that you provide us with electronic copies of the records below as they may be held by or otherwise available to the RCMP, including the Canadian Firearms Program, the Specialized Support Services Unit and the Commissioner of Firearms (collectively the “RCMP"): 1. All records, including but in no way limited to research, analysis, policy papers, briefing reports, studies, proposals, presentations, reports, memos, letters, emails and any other communications related to the use, and the effects of the use of handguns and assault-style firearms in Canada. The timeframe for this request is 2000 to present."
Note this is aimed at the RCMP, who run the Canadian Firearms Program, the Firearms Lab, and includes the Commissioner of Firearms....
...we asked for ALL electronic records "...including but in no way limited to research, analysis, policy papers, briefing reports, studies, proposals, presentations, reports, memos, letters, emails and any other communications related to the use, and the effects of the use of handguns and assault-style firearms in Canada".
That's for "...the use of handguns and assault-style firearms in Canada...".
...which is their job...
And their answer is...
...wait for it...
Response: "...Unfortunately, we were unable to locate records which respond to your request."

CCFR v Canada: RCMP Cover-up #2
Request: "On behalf of the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights and Rodney Giltaca we request access to information related to Order in Council P.C. 2020-298, May 1, 2020 (the “Order in Council"), making the Regulations Amending the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and Other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-Restricted on May 1, 2020 (the “Regulations"), and P.C. 2020-299, May 1, 2020, making the Order Declaring an Amnesty Period (2020) (the “Amnesty Order"). In particular, we request that you provide us with electronic copies of the records below as they may be held by or otherwise available to the RCMP, including the Canadian Firearms Program, the Specialized Support Services Unit and the Commissioner of Firearms (collectively the “RCMP???): 1. All records, including but in no way limited to research, analysis, results, discussion, policy papers, briefing reports, studies, proposals, presentations, reports, memos, letters, emails and any other communications related to the roundtables held in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Moncton, and any other Canadian municipalities, as referenced on page 59 of the Order in Council. The start date for this request cannot be identified as it is specifically directed at the statement in the Order in Council. The end date is May 1, 2020."
So this is for everything "...related to the roundtables held in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Moncton, and any other Canadian municipalities, as referenced on page 59 of the Order in Council."
The so-called firearm consultations...
Response: "...Unfortunately, we were unable to locate records which respond to your request."

CCFR v Canada: Department of Justice
Here's another Access to Information Act request and reply. This one tells you what the government of Canada is actually up to. Get ready to be really ****ed off...
This one is to the Department of Justice, the legal advisors to the government, Cabinet, and the Governor General...
Request: "Request access to information related to Order in Council P.C. 2020-298, May 1, 2020 (the “Order in Council”), making the Regulations Amending the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and Other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-Restricted on May 1, 2020 (the “Regulations”), and P.C. 2020-299, May 1, 2020, making the Order Declaring an Amnesty Period (2020) (the “Amnesty Order”). In particular, we request that you provide us with electronic copies of the records below as they may be held by or otherwise available to the Department of Justice, including the Minister of Justice (the "DOJ"): 1. All records, including but in no way limited to research, analysis, policy papers, briefing reports, studies, proposals, presentations, reports, memos, letters, emails and any other communications related to the recommendations of the Minister of Justice to the Governor in Council, as referenced on pages 1 and 67 of the Order in Council."
So this is for their research ".. related to the recommendations of the Minister of Justice to the Governor in Council, as referenced on pages 1 and 67 of the Order in Council..."
Get ready...
Reply: "...Pursuant to paragraphs 9(1)(a) and 9(1)(b) of the Access to Information Act, I hereby notify you that an additional 2,920 days are required to comply with your request. The extended period of time is required because the request necessitates a search through a large number of records and meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the Department...."
So their answer is "we'll get back to you in 8 years".

I really like what Runkle is doing with his YT channel, this one is on the shotgun 20mm definitions. What I do wonder about with this, is there anywhere else where the process of machining a bore and then the secondary cuts such as the chamber and the choke threads, or some similar secondary cut, has been accepted by a court as the definition that is actually present in case law already?

CCFR is having their protest in Ottawa today, Looks like a fair number of people showed up, no idea how many yet, too early. Ian Runkle also put out a vid yesterday, about a week or two late in my opinion, as to why you should not take a firearm to a protest meeting, the case even occurred in AB. They guy that got charged was badly mistaken in his methods, but, it sets a precedent;

People are complaining about the the 800 or so numbers that CBC & CTV are promoting, CCFR will have to have an aerial count to prove or disprove that, only way it can be verified.

NFA interview with the Michaela Glasgo, Alberta MLA, who is the head of the Alberta Firearms Advisory Council. Discussion about the provincial goals and the pros and cons of a provincially appointed CFO and a few other things;
