(Sponsored content) I'm at Shooter's World in Phoenix, Arizona — one of the freest states in the USA when it comes to firearms. As an open carry state, individuals are free to exercise their right to firearms in one of the most bold and beautiful ways possible— by carrying a sidearm on their person. And that's exactly what I did!
And it got me to thinking: Canadians have so much work to do!
Before Trudeau's Liberal Government was elected, ours was a country with an inordinate number of laws on the books that lacked common sense, routinely punished law abiding gun owners and did nothing to solve violent crime.
Things promise to get worse under a prime minister who campaigned on more gun control.
But I'm now in a state where minimal laws are placed on gun owners. That's translated to the lowest crime rates in Arizona in 30 years!
On the other hand, the gun control obsessed city of Toronto where I'm from has experienced a 200 per cent increase in gun crime in recent years.
The truth is: A well armed society is a polite society.
The good news for we law-abiding Canadian gun owners is that we have the Canadian Shooting Sports Association in our corner!
As a proud member of the CSSA, I know there isn't a fight in federal or municipal governments which escapes their radar.
And, when "antis" have their sights on our property, the CSSA is in the first train, plane, or automobile to the legislature or media station to ensure our voice is properly represented.
I hope that one day jurisdictions in Canada can see firearm laws as expansive as they are in Arizona, but the only way we can hold and gain any ground at all is with the freedom loving team at the CSSA!
(Thanks for all the work you guys & gals do!)
