DAILY GLEANER (FREDERICTON, NB)
A Measured Response
Dear Editor: According to the NB Fish and Game Act, Firearms Regulations, a firearms owner is required to keep his firearm unloaded and in a case when not in a resort of wildlife. Walking in an urban from my home to a hunting area would be not in a resort of wildlife and one reason to case my firearm and carry it. Yes, there is a hunting season all year ‘round in NB. How can a legal activity elicit such a police response and why would a police service be so intent on disturbing the peace of the community? Soldier-police in "war on Terror" cammies with assault rifles and grenades seeking and peeking through backyards is hardly a measured response to a piece of luggage, which is essentially what a firearms hard case is. This is the third or fourth community peace disturbing incident now, it’s getting old. City citizens should question the need and expense to regularly carrying out these occupations. Is there another policing way to deal with reports of citizens doing legal activities short of deploying for a counter terror operation? How did police do this before SWAT? For those of us who own firearm hard cases, we carry firearms in them, unloaded and locked, but we also carry fishing rods, camping gear and the odd bottle of camping whiskey (for medical purposes only). My recommendation is that FPD review the NB fish and Game and Canada Firearms Act Regulations, develop some sensible SOPs, and tailor their responses more appropriately. Certainly, they need to change something before they shot someone for doing a legal activity.
