INT’L – GUN RIGHTS – Saskatchewan Smashes Liberal Anti-Gun Bias in Naming Freberg CFO

Saskatchewan hired a high-profile advocate for hunters, farmers and sport shooters as its new Chief Firearms Officer today, breaking with a federal government and regulatory regime that criminalize them. The government of Premier Scott Moe named Robert Freberg as its new Chief Firearms Officer. Freberg will manage the federal licensing and administration regime for the province’s firearm users, ending two decades of federal oversight. Every province has the option of hiring its own CFO or getting a federal appointee. Saskatchewan said in May it would take the power after Canada’s governing Liberal Party attacked licensed farmers, hunters, plinkers, competitors and firearm collectors with mass rifle and shotgun confiscations.  “Mr. Freberg is well suited to serve in this position and to represent the interests of the Saskatchewan firearms community,” Moe said on Twitter. “Our government will continue to listen to and stand up for law-abiding firearms owners.” The hiring comes as Moe campaigns for re-election in October in a province with one of Canada’s highest rates of firearm ownership. Freberg is a gun-safety instructor who has volunteered and served on the board of directors of the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation for more than 40 years, the government press release said. He was president for five years. He has been on the Canadian Shooting Sports Association board of directors, and is active in nature conservation and outdoor education. Hiring a decades-long supporter of firearm users marks a notable shift away from a system built to constrain them. The Liberals passed the Firearms Act against gun owners in 1995, and keep inventing prohibitions that weaken citizens, cripple the firearm industry and kill modern shooting sports.  [full article]
