Why – Another organization?
- When asked - you as firearms owners indicated that there was a need for the community to work together.
- When asked - you as firearms owners indicated a high level of frustration with the lack of progress that was being made on your behalf.
- When asked - you as firearms owners indicated that you felt that none of the existing organizations had a inclusive national mandate.
Are we fracturing an already fractured community? NO!!!
Our research indicates that the main reason 99.25% of the community does not belong is because they have never been asked. And we are asking.
Our research indicates that there is a strong desire for the existing stakeholders of the community to find a way to work together – while still maintaining their own separate identities.
The Canadian Firearms Institute is a member-driven firearms resource and advocacy group that has evolved as a direct result of a defined need for an organization which can work effectively with AND meet the needs of the various facets of the Canadian Firearms Community.
How We see Our Role in the Community:
If you take the concept of a wagon wheel – wherein you have an outer rim, spokes and a center or “hub” and apply it to the Canadian Firearms Community – the Community as a whole becomes the rim, the spokes – the individual parts of the community and the CFI – the hub.
Currently – the community is a wagon wheel without a hub – many spokes – but nothing that connects the spokes to one another. Our role in the community is to act as the hub – connecting the spokes to one another and to the community as a whole.
So that when the time comes for the community to speak - we are ready and can do so with one strong united voice.
