RCMP Reclassification of Firearms PDF Print E-mail
CALL TO ACTION!!!
RCMP's arbitrary gun ban is frightening Lorne Gunter, SunNews, 2014-03-05
    Even if you think it’s a good thing that a line of scary looking Swiss rifles are now banned in Canada, it should really scare you that they were arbitrarily declared illegal by police, not Parliament. It is a dark day when police, not the people's elected representatives, can suddenly transform thousands of ordinary, law-abiding Canadians into criminals with the stroke of a bureaucratic pen.

Political Action in Lethbridge:
Purchase a $15 membership NOW because you will have to be a member 21 days before the nomination is called in oder for you to vote.  They will ask you for donations and you can tell them you may consider donating when they eliminate the legistlation that allows the RCMP to classify firearms.
The Federal Election boundarys have been changed for Lethbridge and the County of Lethbridge eliminating the southern areas like Magrath, Raymond and Cardston. This means that the Federal Conservative Party will be holding an election to determine the nominee for this new constituency.  Doug McArthur is challenging the current MP Jim Hillyer for this position so it is a good time to contact both of these candidates, take out a membership and vote.
