Canadian Concealed Carry Permit for Back-Country Adventurers
Whether you are a hiker, biker, fishermen, or scout, the lure of the beauty of Canada's back-country wilderness is not easily dismissed. As anyone who has traveled these areas knows, treks into such wilderness make for some of the most memorable experiences in life.
Existing Canadian firearms regulations currently allow for the carrying of concealed weapons by scientists working in remote areas, such as biologists or geologists, and also for trappers who obviously spend a great deal of time in the wild. The benefit of this existing regulation allows such individuals to better protect themselves from predatory animal attacks, with the use of a weapon which is easy to "pack-out" due to its light weight, and which can also be concealed so as to not generate any undue concern from other back-country users.
CCWBackCountryCanada is a proposition to amend the existing regulations, allowing authorization for persons lawfully permitted to own and use restricted concealable firearms, to carry such firearms while they are hiking, fishing, camping, etc, in back-country areas of Canada with known predatory animal populations.
This amendment begins right here with you. Once enough signatures are collected, a formal proposition to amend the current firearms legislation will be brought forward to the Federal Government and the RCMP's Canadian Firearms Program.
This petition is for Canadian residents only.
