BC Restricts Fraser Valley Crown Land Shooting Areas

fraser valley no shooting areas

The province of BC is restricting gun use areas in the Fraser Valley.  I cannot say I am surprised that this has happened.  Doesn’t mean I agree as its crown land and we should be able to use it. We are again being punished for the small group of people who don’t give a dam.  I know the trash left behind is a problem and think we ALL should be cleaning up after ourselves.  To me, that’s common sense.  But the input from first nations and RCMP that helped select these area’s, is a joke, maybe consult the public, maybe put larger fines on people being reckless with firearms or leaving trash behind as both are illegal now as far as I am aware.  Just makes me mad, the RCMP will ban anything they can if it means less work for them.  A lot of first nations will vote to ban anything they can as they want to limit everyone else as much as possible as they usually are not affected and I don’t think the area’s mentioned are native land?

In terms of the fines for shooting in areas that have now been deemed off limits:

“Gun users who ignore the restrictions face fines of up to $50 000 and six months in jail for a first offence, and as much as a $100,000 fine and a year in jail for subsequent convictions.”

Are you kidding me!  To put this into perspective a guy cut a man’s head off on a bus and ate some of the individual.  An officer who attended the scene killed himself sometime after, I am sure because of the mental stress from seeing this.  That person got a total of 5 years and is now free and walking around WITHOUT any monitoring, none.  You shoot in the bush in a restricted area and get caught you go to jail for 6 months and a $50,000 fine!  Not to mention legal fees if you are even allowed a defense.  Crazy

If we keep putting more laws and regulations in place every time there are a few people not being considerate or following basic logic, we are all going to be living in a very boring world.
