Another woman dead. Do we really value the life of our citizens?
Our right to keep and bear arms in our own or the country's defense comes from exactly the same place as the American one -- English Common Law, the English Bill of Rights 1689, the writings of Sir William Blackstone in his Commentaries on English Law, and others. All these laws (and indeed the full body of English Law), became part of Canadian law on our Confederation in 1867 with the affirmation of the British North America (BNA) Act.
We, the undersigned, call on the Prime Minister of Canada to amend the Charter of Rights and Freedoms under The English Bill of Rights 1689, to include the "Right to Bear Arms, similar to The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution adopted on December 15, 1791.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
