To the editor:
Great letter by Bruce K. Dunne (Jan. 5). But it misses one important fact. Those Liberal hacks employed by the Canadian Firearms Center in Miramichi were skill-challenged.
The massive amount of mistakes (found in only a cursory examination of the data base illegally given to the Ottawa Citizen, which anyone could access) made by the staff show that the whole exercise was nothing more than a Liberal make work program for cronies.
This list of laughable (if not for the jail and criminal records that could result to innocent firearms owners who were threatened into complying with the fraudulent law) errors were made by the staff, not the applicants. Who, for instance, ever heard of the pages and pages of “saver” firearms. Or the old Winchester 1894 model lever action rifles that are listed as “full auto”—“prohibited.”
As the Auditor General stated, up to a 90 per cent error rate in the records makes them totally useless to the police and a grave danger to them and the public.
The law states that the applicant is responsible for the errors in the data recorded at the Canadian Firearms Center.
We are all still criminals under that abominable law. The law was never about “public safety” but was designed solely for confiscation of lawfully owned firearms. It is working exactly as they planned it as they pick away at one type of firearm at a time.
