SASKATOON, SK, April 27 /CNW/ - "As individuals engaged in civil
disobedience against the 1995 Liberal gun control law (Bill C-68), we
respect our fellow citizens' right not to be armed." This is what Mr.
Al Muir, spokesperson for the Canadian Unlicensed Firearms Owners'
Association (CUFOA), declared today.
"But," Mr. Muir added, "those of us who want guns for hunting,
self-defense or other legitimate purposes demand respect for our right

Mr. Muir explains that "the actual alternative for peaceful Canadians
who want guns, even simply to keep the guns they already own, is submit

"None of the major political party addresses this issue, and neither
does the Bloc Quebecois who just follows the feds," continues Muir.
"All these parties support the 1995 Liberal law, except for the
Conservatives who want to make cosmetic adjustments that would change
nothing in the intrusive and never-ending licensing requirements.
CUFOA is an association of Canadian gun owners who practice civil
disobedience by refusing to obey the 1995 Bill C-68, including its
