Agriculture Roundup for Thursday January 19, 2023

The group that represents rural municipalities is putting its support behind the Saskatchewan Firearms Act.

Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) president Ray Orb said the act will protect law-abiding firearm owners.

“This legislation is another tool to help the people of rural Saskatchewan insulate ourselves from misguided federal policies. SARM is a strong advocate for responsible and safe firearm ownership,” Orb said in a news release. “The provincial plan is more practical and is more in line with the needs of rural Saskatchewan. Establishing Saskatchewan-based criteria for responsible firearms ownership is much preferred over the federal government setting the requirements.”

Orb said concerns are growing over the federal gun bans, and SARM members are concerned these are ineffective and politically motivated infringements on the rights and freedoms of farmers, ranchers, and recreational firearm users.
