Solomon Friedman quoted in Postmedia gun law article

(2011-07-15)

Solomon Friedman, an associate at Edelson Clifford D'Angelo who specializes in firearms law was quoted in a recent Postmedia article in regards to Canada's efforts to exempt civilian-owned hunting rifles from the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

Solomon stated:

Solomon Friedman, an Ottawa-based lawyer specializing in firearms law, said his fellow firearms owners should be pleased with the government's push to protect their rights on the world stage.

"Gun owners will certainly be happy they are not being penalized for the actions of gun traffickers and rogue states, and that they're not being lumped in," he said.

Friedman said gun owners are pleased with the Harper government's position on guns, particularly its plan to repeal the long-gun registry.

"What we're seeing here is a shift in attitude by Canada's government to recognize the legitimate use of firearms by millions of Canadians," he said. "The government of Canada no longer seems to be treating law abiding firearms owners as presumptive criminals." 

The article, by Postmedia writer Jeff Davis, appeared nationally, including in the following publications:

Ottawa Citizen

Vancouver Sun

Saskatoon Star Phoenix

Montreal Gazette

Edmonton Journal

Calgary Herald

Windsor Star
