If you hear a buzz coming from downtown Ottawa this afternoon, its probably emanating from the Gallery at the House of Commons.
Yesterday I received a very noteworthy invitation from Safari Club International’s Canadian director Bob Valcov, to join him and other like-minded individuals in the Gallery of the House of Commons.
Today is an extremely HUGE day for gun-owners in Canada and a big day for SCI Canada as well. It is the culmination of years of lobbying against a needless, expensive and over-the-top gun registry.
SCI Canada’s motto is “First for Hunters” and my new friend Mr Valcov plans to assert this credo along with his ‘vocal posse’ today on Parliament Hill.
The group plans to occupy seats in the House of Common’s Gallery during Question Period today beginning at 1 PM. They will remain there until 5 PM when the final reading is expected to be heard. It could become interesting as things may just heat-up a little:
“I expect it to get a bit rowdy” said Valcov of the Gallery of long-gun enthusiasts waiting on the edge of their collective seats this aft.
If all goes as planned (and it should) the 3rd reading of Bill C-19 will be the FINAL reading and the end of an era. With some luck we will remember February 15, 2012 as the day the Long gun Registry was put out of is misery.
Stay close to your televisions and radios; it could very well be a day of celebration. Thanks to people like Mr Bob Valcov of SCI Canada – a man representing a fine organization working on behalf of all Canadian long gun owners.
Here’s to you Bob, and here’s to me. And here’s to the rest of the legal and responsible long gun owners from Newfoundland to British Columbia!

Ok folks now all that being said, for God’s sake say a little prayer!!
