CHARGED WITH A FIREARMS OFFENCE?
David Chow believes in the principle that responsibile firearms ownership is a legitimate means empowering law abidig citizens to resist the tyranny of government. In essence, responsible firearms ownerhips by ordinary people keeps the Government in check.
Though most law abiding gun owners (such as members of the Brooks Gun Club) have traditionally held a profound respect for firearms, today’s political, legal, social and cultural climate is one of fear of guns. Ofteimes this fear is misplaced. Whee David once believed that the public consciousness has been unreasonably tainted by firearms fear culture, recent events highlight that firearms in the wrong hands are incredibly dangerous. But whose hands are the wrong hands? Government agents are not the only responsible gun owners.
Notwithstanding that there has been some positive changes to Canada’s firearms laws in recent years, there remains restrictive and confusing rules with respect to firearms ownership.
Though you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, if you stand charged with a gun crime or any other crime and possess firearms, there is a reasoanble likelihood the police have entered your dwelling house, searched your home and seized your property. Worse, if charged with a gun offence, there is a reasonable prospect that you will be denied bail. Defending the case will be difficult, for the Crown will likely prosecute you with all intesnsity, utilizing the full force of its vast collective resources; this includes proceeding against you by a policy driven election by “indictment” when they have a choice to proceed summarily. Even though the Supreme Court of Canada has struck down absurd minimum punishments legislated by the Harper Conservatives, there remains a high likelihood that the Crown will nevertheless seek heavy incarceration. Of course, the penalty depends upon the offence charged.
