Dear Editor, A tragic thing happened in my province on Christmas eve. A Winnipeg woman was shot with a pellet gun and suffered, according to police, a "life-altering injury." A pellet gun is a weapon my Member of Parliament, Robert Sopuck (CPC - Dauphin/Swan River/Marquette - above) is convinced is "literally, not a firearm." Scant weeks before this unfortunate incident, Mr. Sopuck had introduced a private members bill to amend the Criminal Code. Its purpose - " to clarify that low-velocity rifles such as BB guns and air rifles should not be considered firearms.” And a bit before that, the Supreme Court had declared that they were so, firearms!
