Re: Hunters being targeted, April 30 letters

The government plans to ban semi-automatic assault rifles – not ban repeating action firearms, “the sort that have been used by Canadian hunters since 1905,” as the letter published April 30 claims.

Semi-automatics are weapons designed to kill people. A true hunter should be sure that they can kill their prey with one clean shot. There is no need to fire multiple rounds at defenceless animals.
