A long battle

February 2005
Ontario Out of Doors;Feb2005, Vol. 37 Issue 1, Angler & Hunter HOTLINE p2
The article informs that since the early 1990s, when Canadians entered heavy-footed into the topic of gun control, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) took a leading role in national protests to bring down schemes to register legally-owned firearms. Mountains of petitions, media campaigns, letters to editors and politicians, a Supreme Court of Canada challenge as well as two Parliament Hill rallies were supported by the OFAH, which is still holding tight to the reins in the crusade to scrap the national firearms registry.
