Phil Hewkin is an artist and a gun owner. He believes, as I do, that owning private property should not land you in prison, nor should it cost you your life savings or your family home. All three of those things happened to Ontario gunsmith Bruce Montague. Well, to be precise, the last of the three, the theft of the Montague family home using Ontario’s Proceeds of Crime Act, is not yet completed.
Now that the federal government is done stripping the Montagues of their life savings in the form of a firearm and ammunition collection, the Ontario government will now proceed with their absurd claim that the Montague family somehow benefited financially from Bruce Montague’s act of civil disobedience.
We in the west will tolerate any amount of insanity from radical muslims, yet when a single Canadian gun owner uses civil disobedience to protest an atrocious law he is branded a terrorist, tossed in prison and stripped of his worldly possessions.
Does that sound reasonable and rational?
