Mr President, distinguished delegates,
I am Gary Mauser, Professor Emeritus, of Simon Fraser University in Canada. I represent the National Firearms Association. For over 20 years,
my academic research at SFU has involved studying firearms and crime. A study I did with constitutional lawyer and criminologist Don B. Kates
has been recently published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. I will briefly report on our findings.
Here is a letter sent to Prime Minister Harper by Professor Mauser;
"I would like to thank you for taking steps to dismantle the long-gun registry. I understand that this is a difficult
task for a minority government, and I appreciate your willingness to attempt the challenge.
However, I am hearing very disturbing rumours that your office is looking at the possibility of banning some
or all non-restricted semi-automatic long guns.
