Nothing gets OFAH members more fired up than government restrictions on firearms. And there sure isn’t any shortage of firearms restrictions these days. The OFAH has been involved in firearms issues for decades, working on behalf of our members and supporters. We helped lead the charge against the wasteful long-gun registry and our staff, local representatives and members have taken great pride in bringing a little more camo into many municipal council chambers across the province over the years.
Thank you for caring about your firearms future.
There isn’t much though that has made OFAH members more confused and upset than the firearms decisions being made at the federal level in Ottawa in recent years. The introduction of Bill C-21 in the House of Commons last month is just the latest example and it has created another wave of uncertainty within the firearms community. Over the last few weeks, we’ve heard from many firearms owners who want to know more about the impact this legislation could have if it becomes law. With this new bill, the OIC prohibitions from last year, Bill C-71 before that, and the seemingly non-stop barrage of firearms issues in municipalities across the province, there are no shortage of topics to discuss. And, now we’re taking advantage of everyone’s newfound familiarity with virtual events to offer a chance to ask us about your firearms-related questions – from anywhere in the province!
The OFAH is holding an exclusive, members-only Q&A session on March 23, 2021 at 7 p.m. We’ll answer your questions and talk about OFAH advocacy on firearms. The two OFAH staff members who are responsible for firearms policy issues will be on hand for the event. Matt DeMille, OFAH Manager of Fish and Wildlife Services is a registered lobbyist and actively works on firearms policy for the OFAH. Brian McRae, OFAH Senior Advisor, Community, Partner Relations dabbles in all things firearms, is the staff liaison for the OFAH Firearms Advisory Committee and leads OFAH’s efforts on firearms issues at the municipal level.
Spots are limited, so sign up today at www.ofah.org/insideaccess and have your OFAH membership number handy. We expect a lot of questions, so we’ve added a field in the registration process where you can submit your questions ahead of the event. Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive a link to join us on March 23. The discussion will be hosted by none other than Ontario OUT of DOORS Editor-in-Chief, Ray Blades who will ask Matt and Brian as many burning questions as he can.
It’s time to get your firearms questions #firedupOFAH. See you on March 23.
