IMPORTANT FIREARMS E-PETITION e-1883

Posted by smith.wendell1@gmail.com on January 31, 2019 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Please read and share with your friends to sign

The petition e-1883 

The Petition is open for signature until February 8, 2019, at 8:26 a.m. (EDT)

******************************************************************

Name : Julia Ecclestone

Email Address : jecclestone@live.ca

Phone Number : 905 877 0555

Message : Greetings,

I am writing to you today to ask for your help. As you may be aware, at the direction of our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction Bill Blair is in the process of examining the possibility of a ban on handguns and ¿assault weapons.¿. Members of Canada's firearm owning community understand that a ban of this kind will be unfairly punish the owners of semi-automatic rifles and handguns, and will seriously endanger the future ownership of any kind of firearm.

 

Our family collects historical firearms and we are avid target shooters, it is time to take action to protect our hobby and personal property. Together with my eldest son and husband, I have co-authored an e-petition to Minister Blair, opposing a handgun and ¿assault weapon¿ ban, and requesting that the Minister respect law-abiding Canadians who own firearms. In the time since we launched the petition in October, we have gathered over 30,000 signatures.

 

The link to the e-petition, e-1883, is as follows:

https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-1883

 

If the link doesn¿t work please type ¿e-petition 1883¿ into google.

 

While it is certainly true that petitions do not necessarily guarantee results, and while some individuals may argue that these efforts are a waste of time, it is imperative that this petition receives widespread support for the following reasons:

 

It challenges that dangerous narrative that Canadians support the proposed ban.

The Canadian Coalition for Gun Control, led by Wendy Cukier, has launched a competing e-petition in support of the proposed ban (e-1923).

This e-petition is an integral aspect of a much larger effort against the ban, involving political engagement in various forms.

It is imperative that all Canadian firearm owners, regardless of the class of firearms they own, support these efforts. While a handgun and semi-automatic rifle ban may not affect every firearm owner directly, it sets a dangerous precedent by affirming the flawed idea that banning and confiscating privately owned firearms is the solution to crime and gang violence.

 

In light of what I have explained above, I strongly encourage you to please share this petition with your members. We must send a strong message to Ottawa that a ban is not the answer and that law abiding firearm owners are not the problem.

 

Sincerely,

Julia Ecclestone

Bookings and Rentals John Randell

 

Many "Thanks" to all for the great work done by this group over the past year.

 

TRAP

Trap shooting events are usually scheduled for the summer on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM. This will usually start around May month depending on weather conditions. Later in the year with the reduced evening light, these events will be done on Sunday afternoons.

 

Trap shooting has been bringing in more shooters especially over this past season. This is primarily due to the continued efforts of the Trap persons. Dave Batstone, Louis Fequet and Ed Andrews have been extremely supportive of our Trap events and continue to run and promote Trap shootin.

With all this activity we look forward to the possibility of obtaining equipment and getting our second trap machine in place. This will allow our novice shooters some time for practice to gain experience before joining the team with our more seasoned shooters. This will also allow us to have more shooters participating for the same time frame.

 

Dave Batstone had taken some time off from the Trap Chairperson position this season with Louis Fequet taking over. Ed Andrews filled in if Louis was unavailable to run Trap sessions. They have all done and continue to do exceptional work for the Association. We always looked forward to Ed's colourful emails and commentary. Thanks Guys!

 

Any one interested in becoming part of the trap team or coming along to try out the activity are asked to contact us and we will pass along your information to the group. Ladies are always welcome and a few participate in this fun shooting activity on a regular basis.

The cost for a round of trap (25 targets) has been maintained at $5.00 over the past number of years. While we are making arrangements for our clay order for this season, we are hopeful that we may be able to continue with the same user costs. One of the biggest factors in governing this trap fee would be the freight costs absorbed as we have to pass this along to our end users. We are hopeful that we can obtain our stock without an increase as we have been able to do from our previous orders.

The inventory stock has been reviewed from this past season and orders will be made early 2019 in plenty of time for the first shooting activity.

We must "Thank" Ed Strickland and other members of the Stephenville Shooting Club for being a big part of our regular shooting activity and their continued support to our club. We also have our members visit the Stephenville Club for regular trap shooting activity. It is good to see such interaction and have such mutual support within our clubs.

ALL ARE WELCOME.


 

Remember that guests who wish to shoot and are not members of another club are required to pay a $5.00 for the day. As the NFA have no requirement now to collect the insurance fee per guest per day, it was agreed by the board that we continue with the fee which will go towards the contributions collected by the UHRGA towards the donations made to either the Janeway Hospital or the Western Memorial Hospital Foundation. This would surely be beneficial to all our community.

 

MEMORIAL SHOOT

We will be having a Memorial Day Trap shoot again this summer. Date of the event is to be scheduled and posted accordingly.

This past years event was held on Sunday, August 19th, 2018 with a good attendance.

 

All are Welcome to come along and take part in our Memorial TRAP Shooting event. Thanks to Louis Fequet and the Trap Team for coordinating the event.

 

SIGHT IN DAYS

at the UPPER HUMBER ROD and GUN ASSOCIATION were held in September. This is an annual event usually held a week or so prior to the hunting season.

 

During this time period, the club members assisted many hunters to sight in their firearms prior to hunting season. This has helped with marksmanship skills ensuring proper shot placement and hopefully a successful hunting season with no losses or wounded animals escaping. This has alerted some of you to hidden problems with firearms or scopes. This gave those hunters time to correct those issues before the hunting season started. This has been a really invaluable and important service to the hunting community where our members and guests really appreciated our assistance.

 

Please remember that any time you visit with us;

 

Hunters, members, and guests are responsible for the safe transport of all their firearms to and from the facility and to make sure you carry with you your current club membership card and NFA insurance card. Your membership card gives you the permission required for your non-restricted firearms.

Restricted firearms require other permission. It is your responsibility to make sure you have the required documents with you for the firearms you are transporting.

For those who are not members please be sure to pick up your permits to carry your firearms to the range from the authorities. Permits are available from the RNC, The Dept. of Fisheries and Land Resources, the Dept. of Natural Resources, and the Dept. of Justice.

PLEASE BRING ALONG ADEQUATE AMMO for your sight-in purposes.

 

While at the range ... Hearing and Eye protection is mandatory for everyone near any shooting area and those must be worn at all times during any shooting activity. The club has a supply of the safety equipment on hand which should be adequate for our scheduled sanctioned events but will depend on the numbers of people present. You should always bring along safety equipment for yourself and your guests at any time you visiting the range. Be Prepared.

IPCS UHRGA

On the weekend of May 26-27 / 2018 IPSC NL put of a course for the Black Badge Certification. It was a great weekend of learning and shooting. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful time and fellowship. Other IPSC shooting match events were held monthly at the club from June to October. It was great to have the IPSCNL Team over from St. Johns to put of the course to train our members. It is good to see this activity growing at our club. Thanks to all involved in doing the training; the instructors, and to Myron King for being our UHRGA IPSC Chairperson.

***UHRGA Members and their guests are welcomed to drop by to the grounds to view those exciting competition matches. These events will be posted to our Scheduled events on our website calendar as they become available from the IPSC team.

 

Only those persons who have done the Black Badge Certification and IPSC training can participate in the events. If you are interested in this activity, then contact myself or Myron directly. myron.king4@gmail.com

 

During any IPSC event, you must not enter the range or interfere with range activity. The RSO has FULL CONTROL over the event and you. Please follow all instructions given and stay well behind any barriers put in place for your safety.


 

 

Youth Skills Event ....

This years event was held on Saturday, August 25 with wonderful participation form our youth. The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources - Wildlife Division partnered with us again this summer for a full-day youth event. Everyone had a wonderful day and enjoyed the program. We also welcomed Delta Water Fowl as a sponsor to our youth hunter programs both at the facility and later in the fall with the Exchange program.

 

In attendance for the Youth Hunter Skills Day was Archery Instructor Fred Carberry, members of the Bay of Islands Search and Rescue team who did the outdoor wilderness awareness and survival training, media from the Western Star, members of the Dept. of the Fisheries and Land Resources -Wildlife Division, members from Delta Waterfowl, Firearms Instructors, members of the Stephenville Shooting Club, and members of the Bay of Islands Rod and Gun Club, as well as our own volunteers.

 

***All firearms, archery equipment, and related safety gear was

provided by the "The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources - Wildlife Division.

 

***Participants learned about wildlife conservation, outdoor safety, wilderness survival, responsible hunting practices, and the minor's Possession Acquisition License Program.

 

***There were opportunities for youth to win prizes, and those participants between 12 to 17 years old had their name entered in the Youth Hunting and Fishing Exchange Program draw for a chance to participate in hunting or fishing activity in another province.

 

***During lunch time, a competition to identify animals, ducks and other game birds, the judging of distances to animal and bird silhouettes, and other interesting material was held.

***Youth were given some instruction on using compasses. there was a session on taking and reading compass bearings and giving distances between markers which was part of the competition process.

 

***See the details below of the Winners of the Youth Hunter Exchange. This came from the Canadian Trapper Magazine.

The CTM pdf file is available at the bottom of this letter. The information was passed along to me from Nathan Spence. I will try to post it to our Photo Gallery as soon as I reslove some computer issues with uploading the file to our website.

RANGE WORK

During your recent visits you must certainly have noticed that range expansion work has been being ongoing during the summer months for the new 300M rifle range addition.

 

Tony Wiseman and the members of the Range Committee have been busy up to that point in time when equipment was removed from the area due to excessive water stopping equipment operations. We simply needed to let the area drain. Since that time additional ditching has been added and this proved to be very effective in relieving water levels from the range area.. Work will continue as the weather improves in early summer 2019 and as the area dries up from the winter snow and ice. We do need to cut some wood behind the back stop to allow the contractors equipment to access the area in order to pile the back stop material much higher. To this end, we will be looking for volunteers to help us cut the wood behind the back stop area. We will be sending a separate notice for the timing of this activity. We are looking forward to getting the new range work started again this coming summer as our contractor becomes available. That would be depending on equipment availability as well as weather conditions.

Thanks to everyone on the Range Committee for all the hard work on this very important project. This will be a major and significant improvement to our facilities for your recreational pleasure and will be a great place to practice and improve your marksmanship skills. It will also allow more persons user access at our facilities at the same time period with our multiple ranges.

 

Notices as to range construction activity or other periodic closures will be posted to our website calendar according as will any range or other maintenance / construction work that would affect activities during your visit.


 

***New Safety Guidelines and Range Rules will be updated. These will be applied to range activity after the work is completed on the new range. These Guidelines and Rules will be upgraded accordingly as we consult with the CFO and our Range Committee. We are hopeful to have the New Range licensed by this 2019 summer.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO SHOOTING ACTIVITY IS PERMITTED ON THE NEW 300 M RANGE AREA UNTIL IT IS FULLY LICENSED BY THE CFO AFTER COMPLETION.

 

Information for our newest members

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR VISITS TO THE UHRGA

Remember to keep using the mail box and mail slot at the back bridge of the clubhouse, west end, to register your visits to the UHRGA range.

Your name, the date and time of your visit, which calibers you used, and how many rounds spent should be recorded on those index cards. This information is to be transferred to our log books later by one of our Executive or Board members. This information keeps us in line with the requirements of the CFO. By doing so and in particular should you own restricted or prohibited firearms, you must be able to demonstrate that you have used your firearm/s at an approved, registered and licensed range. This information and our log books has in the past been reviewed by the Canadian Firearms Officials during visits to our ranges and facilities. It is your responsibility to fill in those cards.

2018 Hunting Season big bull.jpg

 


 

ARCHERY

We have 2 target stands on a cleared field on the Eastern side of the trap ranges. This area is cleared to approximately 100 M. We will need to place adequate targets there for regular target arrows use only. Hunting arrows are not permitted at this time. Keeping safety always in mind, this area will be free for your use...unless there is trap activity....which is usually held Thursday evenings in the summer or Sundays in the last part of the season or special activity days when and where club bookings does not allow access. We advise you to be cautious in this area due to the old pool and ditching that has been left over from years ago. This area to be marked in the future. The old pool is clearly visible and filled with old trees. The ditching may not be so evident during your visit if the grass is high. This could be a temporary setup until other work on the facilities is completed. Please advise me directly if you or others are interested in this activity. Call Wendell at 709 686 5228.

 

DARTS

Our annual Rodger Saunders Memorial Dart tournament will be held in mid March at our facilities. This is a wonderful fun day for our local dart players and a wonderful memorial tribute to our Founding member Rodger Saunders.

YOUTH HUNTER SKILLS WORKSHOP 2018

Posted by smith.wendell1@gmail.com on August 21, 2018 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Youth Skills Event ....


Saturday, August 25 / 2018.

Should you have family and friends with youth who are interested in taking in the excitement of the Youth Day activities, then get them involved. This information will be available on our website under NEWS. www.upperhumberrodandgun.com.


The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources - Wildlife Division - will be partnering with us again this summer for a full-day youth event on Saturday, August 25 at the Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association at 177 Goose Arm Road in Deer Lake. This year we will be welcoming Delta Water Fowl as a sponsor to our youth programs. Thanks Delta and the members of our local Humber Valley Chapter!!!


Thanks also to The Stephenville Shooting Club and the Bay of Islands Rod and Gun Club in Corner Brook, and The Newfoundland and LabradorTrappers Association for their contribution and assistance towards this years event. We are expecting Volunteers from all those groups and clubs assisting us this year. It does us all good to be able to come together on a common cause of promoting the great outdoor activities to our youth. With safety being the priority concern for everyone involved in any shooting activity, practices for safe hunting and the shooting sports for our youth are given the utmost attention.

 

The event will provide an opportunity for our youth aged 12-17 to participate in shotgun, rifle, and archery in a safe environment under the direct supervision and guidance of qualified instructors and volunteers. There will be a nominal registration fee of $10.00 per youth to participate in this event. A lunch will be provided at no extra costs.

All firearms, archery equipment, and related safety gear will be provided by the Wildlife Division.

Participants will also learn about wildlife conservation, outdoor safety, wilderness survival, responsible hunting practices, and the minor's Possession Acquisition License Program.


There will be opportunities for youth to win prizes, and those participants between 12 to 17 years old will have their name entered in the Youth Hunting and Fishing Exchange Program draw for a chance to participate in hunting or fishing activity in another province.


During lunch time, a competition to identify animals, ducks and other game birds, the judging of distances to animal and bird silhouettes, and other interesting material will be held.


Youth will also be given some instruction on using compasses. There will also be a session on taking or reading compass bearings and giving distances between markers which will be a part of the competition.


Participants are required to pre-register for the event. Registration will take place on a first-come, first-served basis until all our 50 spaces are filled. All youth in attendance must be accompanied by a parent and / or guardian for the entire day.


We are accepting a maximum of 50 youth for this years event. The Youth will be divided into 4 groups with each group rotating through all of the programs in a timely manner.


The event will go ahead, rain or shine so dress according to weather conditions. Bring along rain gear and remember also to bring along sun block and hat. We are all aware of our ever changing Newfoundland weather conditions.


Thank you for your interest in our partnered program for the Youth of Newfoundland and Labrador in developing those necessary skills for our outdoor sports and conservation activities. The skills and lessons learned by our youth on this day will be an introduction for many to a lifetime of safely enjoying the great outdoors and wilderness activities which we share.

 

In attendance for the day will be Archery Instructors, members of the Bay Of Islands Search and Rescue team who will be doing outdoor wilderness awareness and survival training, media from the Western Star, NTV News are being invited, members of the Dept. of the Fisheries and Land Resources, Wildlife Division, Members from Delta Waterfowl and Firearms Instructors, members of the Stephenville Shooting Club, and members of the Bay of Islands Rod and Gun Club and hopefully members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Trappers Association. A member of the local Canadian Firearms Office in Corner Brook will be speaking on the Minor's License Application process and general firearms licensing requirements. Members of the Canadian Rangers from the Jacksons Arm Patrol are also invited to volunteer during the day.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED / PLEASE ADVISE if you can assist during the day. The email address and contact numbers are listed below.

 

Volunteers are very important to the success of our activities and programs. Should you have some time to give us during this event, please make us aware of your interest... I believe that last year we had 29 persons come to assist us in the days event. This made for a very successful event with smooth transition through the entire program. Without treasured persons as yourself who come forward giving of your time and sharing your skills, programs such as this would not be possible. Your dedication and time with us is greatly appreciated.

TRAP

Trap shooting events are scheduled for the summer on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM. Shooters are asked to be there a bit early to assist with set up if necessary.

Trap shooting had a slow start this season because of the extended snow and colder weather. Trap shooting has been bringing in more shooters as the weather conditions improved. Most evenings lately bring our around 15 shooters to the evening events. Trap will continue on Thursday evenings into the fall until the evening day light hours become less. Trap events will then be changed to Sunday afternoons after that time.

Please be sure to bring along your own ammo for a fun evening of shooting. Guests are welcome. The cost for a round of trap (25 targets) is $5.00. We are Looking forward to seeing you all there on Thursday evenings. If you know of a friend who would like to try this exciting sport, then by all means bring them along.

ALL ARE WELCOME. 

***Remember that guests who wish to shoot and do not have insurance or are not members of another club and / or cannot show proof of the same or equivalent insurance are required to pay the insurance fee of $5.00 for the day.

MEMORIAL SHOOT

We are looking at having a Memorial Day Trap shoot. Date of the event is scheduled for Sunday, August 19th. There will be a 22 rifle shoot to this years event. Please watch for the poster in the very near future. We have done this in the past and had lots of fun with it. 

I just recently received the poster from Louis and was waiting for completion of this newsletter before sending it along.

All are Welcome to come along and take part in TRAP Shooting, or the 22 shoot or both. Thanks to Louis Fequet and the Trap Team for coordinating the Memorial Trap shoot. Come along for the day to remember our loved members. Each of them also enjoyed those same shooting sports we enjoy so much today.

SIGHT IN DAYS

at the UPPER HUMBER ROD and GUN ASSOCIATION will be held at our club range at 177 Goose Arm Road in Deer Lake in September. Dates are posted below for the scheduled days prior to the hunting season.

The club will be assisting hunters to sight in their firearms prior to the up-coming hunting season. This will help with your marksmanship skills ensuring proper shot placement and hopefully a more successful hunting season with no losses or wounded animals escaping. This will also alert you of any firearms issues giving you time to correct any identified troubles prior to the hunting season.Schedule of events:

RANGE WORK

This is a very exciting time for us at the UHRGA....During your recent visits you may have noticed that range expansion work has been being ongoing for the new rifle range addition.

We had previously bought in a contractor and had allocated funds to this end. Unfortunately, we ( contractor ) ran into a problem with the equipment which caused us some delays. Since that time, Tony Wiseman and members of the Range Committee have contacted other equipment operators. To this end, we are pleased to inform you that a new contractor was onsite the week of July 09 for a few days ....We now have the range area cleared from trees and brush and are looking at contractors to take us to the next phase of the construction process which will be in building the backstop and side berms. We now have contacted the contractor with the best pricing and they will be onsite on JULY 30 to continue with the next phase of the construction process. 

Notices as to range activity or periodic closures will be posted accordingly. Please keep watching the calendar on our web site. While we apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, we are also looking forward to the completion of the this extension process. This will be done in phases as funding allows for progress. If you are not sure if the range is available for your visit, please contact us through this email. mail4upperhumber@gmail.com or call the numbers below. Please note that an email severals days prior to your visit would be appreciated. As we travel and enjoy our vacation times, we may not always have access to internet services to respond quickly.

New Safety Guidelines and Range Rules will be applied to the range activity after the work is completed. These will be worked on and upgraded accordingly as we consult with the CFO and our Range Committee. 

Wendell Smith 709 686 5228

Tony Wiseman 709 635 7179

John Randell 709 635 5415 

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO SHOOTING ACTIVITY IS PERMITTED ON THE NEW 300 M RANGE AREA UNTIL IT IS FULLY LICENSED BY THE CFO AFTER COMPLETION.

We all look forward to that day when we can safely and finally take that " LONG SHOT ".

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR VISITS TO THE UHRGA

Remember to keep using the mail box and mail slot at the back bridge of the clubhouse, west end, to register your visits to the UHRGA range.

Your name, the date and time of your visit, which calibers you used, and how many rounds spent should be recorded on those index cards. This information is to be transferred to our log books later by one of our Executive or Board members. This information keeps us in line with the requirements of the CFO. By doing so and in particular should you own restricted or prohibited firearms, you must be able to demonstrate that you have used your firearm/s at an approved, registered and licensed range. This information and our log books was just reviewed by the Canadian Firearms Officials who visited earlier this year and inspected our ranges and facilities. It is your responsibility to fill in those cards. It is intended for your protection to follow through with this request.

Remember too that any of your guests who shoot MUST have insurance coverage. If they are a member of another club which has the same or equivalent coverage, they must show their current coverage card before any shooting activity. Should any of your family members or guests not have an individual UHRGA Membership and NFA Insurance card, or equivalent as noted above, then they must pay the daily rate of $5.00 to cover the insurance cost. You, as a member of our Association, are responsible to ensure that insurance is carried or coverage is provided for your family members and guests during those visits. If the visiting family member or guest does not have insurance then please put the name of those persons on individual envelopes provided in the mail box. Make certain that the date and time of the visit is also recorded and the fee enclosed, place each envelope in the mail slot prior to any shooting activity. This protects you, your family members and guest as well as others during your visits. If there is a shooting event going on which you are participating in and registering for, these fees will be collected prior to the event and all those names will recorded accordingly. Collected fees for insurance will be forwarded to the NFA insurance at a later date.

Membership application forms can be found on our website.They are available for New Members, Renewals, Youth and Students. For post secondary education, Student ID or proof of registration in an approved post secondary institution, university or college is required. Our NFA insurance has a $5,000,000 liability policy.

ARHERY

Please note that an area has been cleared for archery targets. There are 2 target stands on a cleared field on the Eastern side of the trap ranges where the old water slides were. All we need to put in place are the actual targets to make it useful. The area is cleared to approximately 100 M. This is for regular target arrows only. Hunting arrows are not permitted at this time. Keep safety always in mind. This area will be free for your use...unless there is trap activity ....which is usually held on Thursday evenings or on special activity days or days when club bookings does not allow.. We advise you to be cautious in this area due to the old pool and ditching that has been left over from years ago. This area to be marked in the near future. The old pool is clearly visible and filled with old trees. The ditching may not be so evident during your visit if the grass is high. This could be a temporary setup until other work on the facilities is completed. Please advise me directly of your interest in this activity. Call Wendell at 709 686 5228.
