We don’t generally support the practice of having police chiefs or other top cops run for election in Canada but given the attitudes of a few it might be time. OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis refused to properly enforce court orders regarding native protests and then bragged about how smart he was and how us poor little folk wouldn’t understand.
Now OPP Sup’t Chris Wyatt, Ontario’s Chief Firearms Officer, is creating new legal regulations all by his lonesome. Wyatt is refusing to issue gun owners an Authorization to Transport certificate except for specific ranges and any gun owner can face demands to show their papers – meaning a written invitation from the gun club you will be visiting.
“Most of the time, obtaining a written invitation will be easy,” Ontario’s chief firearms officer (CFO), Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Supt. Chris Wyatt told QMI Agency.
Well kind sir, that misses the point. There is no need or requirement for this in the legislation, Wyatt is simply inventing new rules. You might remember the name Chris Wyatt, he is the same cop that started the back door gun registry last spring.
That’s why I say that he should quit his job and run for office.
