Against the criminals who govern us, the battle is never won.
Criminals? Well, tell me, who besides a criminal or a tyrant has any interest
in my not having guns? Every five years, a Canadian who has legally registered
firearms must renew the license that allows him to legally keep his registered
guns. Otherwise he is guilty of a crime liable to up to 10 years
in jail if
he keeps his guns (which I intend to do). You need a permission
to do something that, if not done, is a crime that may land you in jail.
The renewal process
which is somewhat less contemptible than
is still unacceptable for a free man.
So, I am waging a dignity battle
similar to the one I waged in 2001 (and, in fact, in 1996), but with
some new twists. I again refused to answer one of the obscene questions on
life, telling them that my love affairs are none of their business.
I sent a registered package to the Prime Minister of Canada with the
a cover letter, and three pages of my
Confessions d'un coureur des bois hors-la-loi which I
cite in my numerous comments on the form. Here is
the whole, uncensored package (except for the prisoner's photograph that
the humble subject must also submit): 1) the covering letter in
(for a copy, please see below),
filled-in Form 979,
and 3) the
excerpt from my book.
Please note that, as
I tell the Prime Minister, I am ashamed not to be part of the group of Canadian
heroes who resist by simply refusing to obtain or renew licences. Will
this change soon?
