NOTICE OF CHANGE IN NON-MEMBER RANGE USE.
In recent years the growing pressure on range 7 has become a source of concern to members and staff. Increased waits for shooting positions and crowded conditions on Saturdays and Sundays have not only caused frustration for our members who may only be able to visit our club during weekends but an analysis of incident reports has highlighted a stark difference between the knowledge and attention to safety of our members and that of the general public.
After long deliberation, the Executive Committee of PCDHFC reached a decision, to be revisited at a later date, to reserve Range 7 for MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS ONLY on WEEKENDS and HOLIDAYS.
The public can continue to drop in on weekdays (excepting holidays). Events, matches or committee shoots are unaffected.

PETITION ADDRESSING BILL C-71
An official online petition is open currently asking that the government not adopt Bill-C71, the bill that is summarized below. The board
strongly urges our members to educate themselves on the bill itself and to decide whether the changes proposed will unfairly impact
on their activities and rights.
The various Canadian firearms associations have discussed Bill C-71 below:

Aside from adding your name to the petition, members are advised that it is within their rights to contact their MP, leaders of the parties,
Minister Ralph Goodale to voice your concerns.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ON BILL C-71
Yesterday, the Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale introduced a new bill before the House of Commons that changes the laws governing firearms in Canada.
Bill C-71 "An Act to amend certain Acts and Regulations in relation to firearms" contains many changes that will be of concern to our members.
Among the changes proposed:
- Certain models of CZ-858 and Swiss Arms Rifles will be prohibited - with owners given a new class of prohibited license limited to owning those models.
- Automatic ATTs, now enshrined in the bill, will not apply to ports of entry, gunsmiths or gun shows
- Non-restricted transfers must now be verified with the Canadian Firearms Center to ensure that licenses are checked
- Stores will keep sales records of all firearms sales with all records given to the CFC if the business closes
- The previously archived long gun registry information will be given to the Province of Quebec
- In background checks for applying for licenses applicants must divulge information over a lifetime rather than 5-years as is required currently
- The definition of non-restricted in law is proposed to be changed so that the federal government will not be able to define a firearm as non-restricted by
order in council (previously, the Conservative government classified the CZ-858 as non-restricted by Order in Council), leaving classification largely up to the RCMP.
The full text of the bill is available here. Follow up discussion around the bill is happening now on the club's Facebook page.
This bill will go to second reading this week where it will be debated in the House of Commons. As citizens and stakeholders, you are obliged to
to reach out to your elected federal representative, the Minister, Prime Minister and members of the opposition to make your opinion on the proposed changes known. A list of MPs and their contact information is available here.
