Oshawa MP Colin Carrie is doing just that. Quote (and from the Sun, no less):
Oshawa MP Dr. Colin Carrie is the advertised special guest at The Long Range Target Shoot Fundraiser to be held Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Orono Fish and Hunt Club.
“Join us for a family friendly day at the range including a demonstration by trained staff and the opportunity to safely discharge a wide variety of firearms,” the invitation says.
Images accompanying the invite show a long gun and a handgun.
Look, I’m no an anti-gun fanatic. I own at least one firearm, and I’ve got all the training and licensing to do so.
But inviting children to a fundraiser to shoot guns? Seriously?
I’ve heard from several Tories who are very, very unimpressed by this move by Oshawa Conservatives. And it is therefore no surprise that central campaign declined to defend it.
What are you thinking, Colin Carrie?
