Canadian Shooting Sports Association Thinks Members Too Dumb To Lobby Harper Gov.

Their message to their Members:

We hope that gun owners will recognize that an ad hoc writing campaign to MPs could cause more confusion than clarity. The CSSA is hoping that sport shooters will use the collective voices of their advocacy associations to negotiate with the Harper government. The CSSA has strong representation on the Firearms Advisory Committee to the Minister of Public Safety, and we believe, as do the 26 organizations in the Canadian Outdoors Network, that more can be achieved through that conduit than through a letter writing campaign that seeks disparate demands, at this time.

We urge firearms owners to resist the temptation to tell MPs what they are seeking from this government, as not all gun owners are of one mind. This will result in mixed messaging, which can do our cause more harm than good.

If all gun owners are not of "one mind" on an issue, how can they have a shared cause?

It's all about controlling the message. One stupid mistake or spelling error and that will become the "fact" for the CBC media campaign.

It's a knee-jerk issue. The politically-correct in urban areas are oblivious that it's a big country. The Long Gun registry is a good example of the hard-of-thinking at work.

It's also mendacious, in that it does not address the elephant in the room that the politically-correct are ignoring: Canadian society is failing to turn out as good a product as previous generations. It's much easier to bleat stridently about banning all kinds of guns, rather than to come up with ideas to promote a sense of civic duty and membership in society.
