Dr. Gary Mauser’s Commentary On The International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) National Regulation Of Civilian Access To Small Arms And Light Weapons. ISACS 03.30:2015(E) – Draft 3.1
Canada –-(Ammoland.com)- Introduction: Thank you for the opportunity to provide my thoughts on Module 3.30 National regulation of civilian access to small arms and light weapons.
I find this module totally unacceptable and cannot support it.
The proposed regulatory scheme is arbitrarily complex and makes exceptionally flattering assumptions about government that are simply inappropriate in the real world.
If adopted, this module would not only be ineffective in fighting criminal violence, but at the same time would stimulate the growth of expensive bureaucracies. It is even likely that these proposals could facilitate corruption.
This module reveals CASA’s [Coordinating Action on Small Arms] profound misunderstanding of the natural rights of citizens and their relationship to government.
