PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE TO EVERY CPC MEMBER YOU KNOW
If you’re a member of the Conservative Party of Canada and received an NFA mailout seeking donations and memberships, I urge you to do three things.
First, write to CPC headquarters immediately and express your displeasure with the theft of the CPC membership list and subsequent illegal use by the National Firearms Association.

It is reprehensible that a group claiming to represent firearm owners would stoop to using a stolen membership list of the Conservative Party of Canada.
The Conservative Party of Canada delivered ia Cease and Desist letter to the NFA on June 5, 2015.
The party already publicly announced they know who the guilty party or parties are and will deal with them appropriately. If you believe, as I do, the person or persons responsible for stealing the Conservative Party membership list should face criminal charges for theft it is imperative that you make your wishes known to the leadership of the Conservative Party.
Should you believe, as I do, the Board of Directors and executive of the National firearms Association should also face criminal charges for possession of stolen property and profiting from that stolen property, then you should tell the Conservative party that as well.
Here is a sample letter to CPC Headquarters. You may want to take this and put it into your own words before sending it off with your signature.,
As a loyal Conservative Party member, I am horrified that someone stole the CPC membership list and then handed it to the National Firearms Association. As one of those who received the offensive mailout, I respectfully request to know what is being done to resolve this issue.
Personally, I want the individual or individuals who stole the membership list publicly held accountable for their actions, including being charged with theft under Section 322 of the Criminal Code of Canada and. I would also like the NFA and its executive officers criminally charged under Section 394.1 of the Criminal Code of Canada for possession of stolen property.
I look forward to your detailed response about the resolution of this issue as soon as you are able to supply it.
